Spacious Holiday House, near Windermere (1039LL)

If quirky features appeal - including centuries old wonky floors, beamed ceilings and original 17th century oak panelling and you seek a holiday home with a bit of a difference, then The Property may well tick the boxes for you. This gorgeous traditional Lakeland farmhouse enjoys a wonderful peaceful setting amidst enchanting gardens. With its own tennis court and table tennis room and just a step away from Windermere Golf Club, this property is a special find. Dating back to at least 1704 ( we believe it is a lot older), The Property is a delight. Homely, atmospheric, comfortable and full of character, The Property enjoys seclusion within its lovely 2 acre gardens whilst the convenience and attractions of Bowness and Windermere are but a 5 minute drive away. At this traditional Lakeland treat, modern living blends effortlessly with the past and the owners have finished it in keeping with its age, yet adding the modern touches of course.

A huge family bathroom, chic shower room, comfortable bedrooms (even the small one) very well equipped and cosy (thanks to the Aga) farmhouse kitchen, a sizeable dining room with original oak panelled wall and spice cupboard, and the relaxing living room with fabulous open fire (coal supplied year round). Outside the table tennis room (always plenty of bats and balls), tennis court complete with umpire's chair, summer house with lovely views and those lovely gardens.


Accommodation in detail

A secluded private driveway leads to a courtyard entrance to this interesting property; here there is lots of parking, a double garage ideal for safe storage of bikes, golfing kit and the like and even an outside WC / wash basin. There is a traditional entrance porch at the front of the property but we prefer to gain access via the farmhouse kitchen. The kitchen is very well equipped with an Aga as well as electric oven, induction hob and there is even the original bread oven! Off the kitchen is a useful utility room / pantry which leads to both the gardens and the courtyard. The dining room is spacious with large oak table for family meals and then there is the living room set out with deep cushioned furnishings to relax by the roaring open fire (coal supplied) as well as a grand piano for any musicians.

Upstairs via the concealed staircase to the bedrooms and bathrooms; one super king size or twin depending on how you would like it set up, and 4 double bedrooms, each with glorious outlook over the gardens, a substantial bathroom complete with double ended bath and separate walk-in shower, a separate shower room and a further cloakroom meaning the property has a total of 4 WC's. Outside to the magic of the 2 acre gardens, we hope you have a flavour from the photographs; pathways lead to secret hiding places, the open air tennis court, the summer house and the bridge leading over the pond (please be vigilant with small children); all this and then a games room equipped with table tennis, we know there will be competitive sports played here at The Property!


Only 2 miles from Windermere and Bowness villages to the east of Lake Windermere, this Lake District country farmhouse is perfectly placed for a peaceful yet convenient time - only 2 minutes from Windermere Golf Club, 2 miles from shops and restaurants in Bowness, and the same distance from the glorious lake shores and boating attractions of Lake Windermere. The surrounding countryside is bliss for walking, straight from your door, and scattered with acclaimed Lake District pub restaurants. Some of the finest in the Lake District are within a very short drive.

Other popular Lake District villages and viewpoints are easily accessible from the A591 at Bowness, which leads to Windermere village then Troutbeck, then on to Ambleside, Rydal Water and Grasmere. Alternatively, follow this road south from Bowness to peaceful Lakeside and arty Ulverston. The Bowness car-ferry also provides access to 'Beatrix Potter country' and the picture post card village of Hawkshead. All-in-all, this prime position at the heart of the Lakes ensures that your whole party will be entertained throughout their stay.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
