Situated on the first floor offering glorious views of the gardens and beyond, this superb apartment is the perfect bolthole for two. Located in Spark Bridge, a quiet former mill village on the River Crake, you’re surrounded by charming dry-stone walls, rolling hills and resident farm animals. To the north, the Furness Fells encompass the mighty Grizedale Forest (11 miles) with numerous trails and forest art, along with the Coniston mountain range where the magnificent Old Man overshadows the village at the head of Coniston Water. With so much on the doorstep, this is the ideal apartment for couples looking for the ultimate Lake District holiday.

Head up the impressive staircase from the shared entrance to the front door of this charming property. A beautiful light-filled open-plan living area awaits you, where you can curl up on the window seat and gaze out towards the magnificent shared gardens. Glossy cabinets and sleek appliances in the kitchen make it a pleasure to cook up a storm for your beau; eat at the dining table and chat about tomorrow’s plans over a glass of wine. When it’s time for bed, slip between the sumptuous sheets in the bedroom and wake up refreshed among soft white and grey tones.

The apartment is surrounded by spectacular scenery in every direction and there’s no reason to get bored here. Soak in the atmosphere on a restored Victorian steamer on nearby Coniston Water (8 miles) or get a more active view of the lake by hiring a paddleboard or kayak from Coniston Boating Centre (10.5 miles). Take long romantic walks along Grange-over-Sands promenade (13.5 miles) or watch breathtaking sunsets over Morecambe Bay from Arnside Beach (24 miles). Over the fell, the pretty village of Cartmel (11 miles) is waiting for you to discover its cobbled streets and renowned food scene.

Please note there is a refundable £100 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.

The apartment is situated in a beautiful location. It is impeccably clean , comfortably furnished and we could not have asked for a better place to stay for our visit to the Lake District. We would certainly like to visit again and would be happy to recommend the apartment and the area to friends.

We had Apartment 5 for the first week in September. Check-in was as arranged and went smoothly. Note that the entry to most apartments is on the lower ground floor meaning that we had three full flights of stairs to climb. The apartment was as expected and we found everything clean and working; the bed mattress on the soft side (but we slept well) Read moreand there was plenty of wardrobe space with hangers. The excellent directions were helpful on arrival and the rural location suited us. Very quiet Hide

Beautiful apartment in stunning location. Tastefully decorated, well equipped, gorgeous views. Quiet and peaceful yet ten minutes to Booths in Ulverston for supplies. There are a lot of stairs which wasnt a problem for us, still able to take food and drink down to garden and enjoy the views. Would definitely recommend this lovely apartment.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
