Only 5 miles from Lake Windermere, the largest and most visited lake in Britain, this sensational two-bedroom cottage is perfect for couples or families seeking a luxurious base to retreat to after a day experiencing all the Lake District has to offer. Take to the water onboard the steamer or for a self-guided adventure why not hire a kayak or canoe? Share a hearty lunch in one of Windermere's welcoming inns and restaurants before walking off your meal across the fells and unspoilt countryside.


With 3 acres of shared garden and exclusive use of the indoor swimming pool complex, your holiday hideaway is a wonderful place to relax and unwind after a busy day. The spacious open-plan accommodation is inviting and full of character. In the lounge area, light the wood burner, curl up on one of the sumptuous sofas and take in the views from the picture window. Sit at the breakfast bar and make plans for your day or enjoy a leisurely supper around the formal dining table. Upstairs you will find two well-appointed bedrooms with luxurious linens and stylish en-suites. Take in the views across the sublime countryside as sit in the sunshine on your private patio.


Sitting at the head of Lake Windermere, the vibrant Victorian town of Ambleside (11.5 miles) is a walker's paradise. A picturesque stroll from town leads to Stock Ghyll Force, a 70-foot waterfall that cascades through the surrounding woodland. Feast on wild food in one of Ambleside's many award-winning restaurants, where locally foraged mushrooms and shore-sourced seaweed are just some of the gastronomic delights on offer. Whether you arrive by bike, boat or boot, spend the day exploring the turrets and towers of Wray Castle (15.5 miles) and find the perfect picnic spot on the banks of the lake.

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.
