Nestled in Beatrix Potter country with fabulous views over Windermere, Fair Rigg stands only a stroll away from the lake shore. This charismatic property provides a unique retreat no matter how active, relaxed or sophisticated your gathering. The four scenic bedroom suites are so special they're individually named: Bowness, Windermere, Claife and Beckside. 'Bowness' has its own separate lounge with additional sofa bed and sun terrace. 'Beckside' incorporates an adjoining twin room for family use. You only need stock up the kitchen and you'll enjoy endless quality time right here in the house; cook up a storm on the Aga, celebrate a special occasion in the dining room with open fire, relax in the living room admiring the view through the bay window... or escape to the gorgeous furnished gardens. Accommodation in detail Stained glass decorates the entry to the hall, with extra shower room/cloakroom off. Superb living room with splayed bay window. Dining room with large table, open fire and access to scenic decking area. Breakfast kitchen with Aga. Downstairs to the en-suite 'Bowness Room' and the additional lounge with double sofa bed and French doors to sun terrace. Upstairs to the en-suite 'Windermere' and 'Claife' suites, both with lake views, and the 'Beckside' family en-suite with king-size double room and twin room. In addition to ample parking outside, there is a garage for bike storage. Location A luxury Lake District holiday home won't always be found in such a fabulous location. This large self-catering property with lake views overlooks Windermere and stands only a stroll from the shore, with the car ferry nearby providing access to shops, restaurants, hire boats and Lake District family attractions in Bowness - including the Royalty Cinema, Old Laundry Theatre and the famous World of Beatrix Potter attraction. But Beatrix Potter's footsteps can be traced right from the doorstep of Fair Rigg, in this prime location for walking and exploring. The close-by hamlet of Near Sawrey was the author's home, and her traditional Lakeland cottage can be visited at Hill Top. Esthwaite Water is a must-see during your stay; declared by Beatrix Potter as 'the most beautiful of lakes'. Near Sawrey's Tower Bank Arms is a renowned Lake District country pub, and featured in Beatrix Potter's books. Hawkshead village is also only a short drive away. With its car-free cobbled streets, local shops, tea rooms and tempting delicatessens you'll find a leisurely day is well spent. Drive a little further and you'll reach Ambleside; a cosmopolitan Lake District village with sophisticated shops, cafes and acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as The Glass House. From Ambleside you can also stroll to Waterhead Pier to take a cruise on Lake Windermere, or follow the A591 to Rydal Water and historic Grasmere.  …see more

Lovingly converted from an old coach house, this fabulous 5 star studio apartment enjoys stunning view towards Lake Windermere. The Gallery is found in a peaceful, pretty location at the head of a private country lane - one of a few select dwellings. Close to Ambleside, you'll enjoy the best of both worlds; explore the delights of the lively village and lake shore, or hide away in blissful tranquility. The unique open plan accommodation has been furnished with no expense spared, to create a contemporary retreat with an infectious sense of calm. You'll find everything you need to relax, pamper and dine together - all the time enjoying one of the most enviable outlooks in the area. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Traditional entrance porch with space for walking clobber. A spatial flow staircase leads to the first floor accommodation - a very spacious open plan area that's cleverly arranged to provide a sense of space. Maple storage units surround a king-size bed. Dressing area and luxurious bathroom with whirlpool bath and power shower. The main living area is positioned to enjoy the scenery, with chic designer furnishings. The kitchen sits in a corner of its own, excellently equipped for romantic meals in. Outside you can wander through the tranquil grounds, or take a seat with a glass of wine! Location The Gallery enjoys a prime Lake District location - whatever style of holiday you're looking for! The property lies within a select handful of converted properties, close to the shores of Lake Windermere and almost half-way between the popular villages of Ambleside and Windermere (with Bowness-on-Windermere also only a few miles away!). What's more, we highly recommend a romantic drive up to the Queen's Head at Troutbeck (to your north east) then over the Kirkstone Pass to serene Ullswater. An unforgettable day out with unforgettable scenery! Windermere village is the perfect place to stock up the kitchen. You'll find a Booths supermarket there, stocking fine local produce as well as everyday essentials. Windermere also has a train station, and a range of local shops, pubs. Just a couple of miles down the road from Windermere, you'll find Bowness village on the east shores of the lake. Lively nightlife, restaurants and shops line the high street, and hire boats are a popular attraction in the Bowness Bay. Ambleside lies to your north, via a scenic drive on the A591 (voted Britain's favourite stretch of road!). The pretty historic village nestles on the northern shore of the Lake, and has grown to become one of the Lake District's most cosmopolitan communities without losing its traditional charm. Ambleside is a lovely place to while away a day, and to enjoy a romantic meal by night. Some of the finest restaurants in the Lake District are found in and around Ambleside. Cruises on Lake Windermere can be taken from Waterhead Pier, just outside Ambleside village centre.  …see more

You might wonder at the name of this enchanting holiday cottage in the Langdale Valley, tucked away in the pretty village of Elterwater.

At the gateway to the Langdale Valley, Elterwater village is a perfect location for soaking up the scenery, with walks in every direction and a warm welcome assured at the renowned Britannia Inn.

Elterwater village sits between Ambleside and Great Langdale. With so many gentle or challenging Lake District walks beginning from your door, you may never need to use your car. The small nearby Elterwater tarn is a delight to behold, and can be reached via a path from the Elterwater Inn - a quintessential Lake District pub serving great food and real local ale. Only a short drive will take you to vibrant Ambleside village and the shores of Lake Windermere. There you'll find a sophisticated range of shops for stocking up the kitchen, acclaimed Lake District restaurants such as 'The Glass House' and Windermere Lake Cruises departing from Waterhead Pier providing a scenic route to Bowness and Lakeside!

Location This romantic rural Lake District cottage lies only a stroll from the small village of Crosthwaite, in the north of the Lyth Valley and only a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The Lyth Valley is lush and laid back, riddled with picturesque walking and cycling routes and renowned as a peaceful landscape compared to busier Lake District self-catering destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside. The valley is set apart from Lake Windermere by a row of lower level fells, with plenty of opportunities to climb up high and soak up stunning lake views. You'll never be too far from attractions, evening entertainment and sophisticated shopping in Bowness village, with Windermere Golf Club also nearby. Also from Bowness, Windermere Lake Cruises depart to Ambleside and Lakeside. The Lyth Valley is also renowned for its scattering of high-class country pub restaurants, one of which stands only a stroll away from Highbeck Cottage.
