Spend your next staycation uncovering the secrets of the stunning Lake District countryside, investigating craggy mountain ranges, hidden valleys and spectacular glacial lakes as old as time. Based in a luxurious retreat just 1 mile from Lake Windermere, you’ll soon be exploring the romantic wilderness in style. Sleeping six guests across three bedrooms, your holiday accommodation is a contemporary masterpiece for relaxing evenings by the wood burner.

Natural light pours through the glass ceiling into the open-plan living space, creating a wonderful ambience on bracing winter mornings thanks to the roaring wood burner. Prepare a hearty breakfast in the country-cottage-style kitchen, feasting together around the table. Grab a book and curl up by a second wood burner in the snug or, on balmy summer afternoons, head into the garden which is a serene spot for summer drinks and a BBQ. At bedtime, choose from two gorgeous bedrooms on the ground floor, or climb the LED-lit stairs to find the master suite complete with a vibrant lounge area and an exquisite en-suite bathroom which features an impressive tear-drop shaped bath. One of the king-size downstairs bedrooms has an en-suite shower room and there is a further shower room also on the ground floor.

Boasting hidden gems directly on your doorstep, this attractive rural setting is a must for those with a love of the outdoors. A scenic walk to High Dam is a brilliant way to spend an afternoon, passing through ancient woodland to reach two picturesque tarns with fantastic views. Lakeside, 1 mile away, offers regular launch services across the tranquil waters of Lake Windermere, where you can disembark at popular destinations such as Ambleside and Bowness-on-Windermere for a bite to eat and a potter around the shops.

This is such a lovely property - even better than we imagined from the photos! Lots of attention to detail, and we loved the artwork, the gardens, and the view of the church from the front garden. It was also a great base from which to explore some excellent walks in the local area. Hope to return again soon. Thanks

Clean, spacious and very comfortable cottage. Location a slight drawback as it's a long drive to the Northern Lakes, and a fair way from good restaurants and gastro pubs, but on the other hand it's near Cartmel.

An excellent cottage for getting away from it all but this also means that you have to get in the car to get to anything. There is one pub that is a 30 minute walk, just be careful of the Lake District weather.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
