Mountain View has been lovingly renovated by the owners. it has character yet it is still spacious. Mountain View has 4 bedrooms, one is a twin, one bunk (this can be a twin if given sufficient notice) and two are doubles. There is an additional fold up bed. It is ideal for entertaining with a large dining area suitable for 8 persons. It is particularly suited for children as there are lots of toys, dvds, and space to play. The owners might even let you use their treehouse, trampoline and sandpit located in a 'children's' garden, please ask about this. There are two kitchens the main one is large and great for preparing feasts, then there is a second kitchen suitable for friends or family that want to do their own thing. The living area has a woodburning stove which works particularly well when stared at intently for sometime whilst drinking something long and cool.

There are mature garden's on 3 sides.The informal garden has a stream through it and opens onto the fell this is a real sun trap and a good place to sit and take in the view with the sound of water in the background. The fellside is a nature reserve with a footpath and bridleway for walking or cycling, from here you can go through ancient woodland down to Newby Bridge where there are a couple of hotels providing refreshments by the Lake.
From this garden you pass through a gate to the more formal garden which has mature flowers and trees a large table and chairs for outside dining and a barbeque. The owners also have a children's garden with a trampoline, small house and sand pit this can only be used with prior agreement with the owners.
The Cumbria/Lake District
There is snow on the hills, crocuses in the verges and lambs in the fields Nature is a little confused but still magnificent!. Escape the floods and come and shelter on the high land.
From the property you look over the Coniston Fells with the old Man of Coniston. Framed nicely by the living room windows. Turn 90 degrees and you look out over a balcony to the hills around Ulverston and Ulpha with the strange monument on the hoad just about visable in the distance, the other elevations look out over fields and woodland. A
For those of you unfamiliar with this part of the world the Lake District is an area of outstanding beauty with mountains lakes and oodles of wildlife. It goes without saying that the range of outdoor pursuits available is huge. However for the less energetic moments there are also many historical sites such as The Bobbin mill English Heritage, Sizergh castle NT, Muncaster castle Wray castle as well as all manner of Roman fortifications. Within 20 minutes you can also be sitting on a sandy beach with sand dunes and within 10 minutes dangling your feet in Lake Windermere.
As one may expect the weather in mountainous area can be rainy. But Mountain View is on the periphery of the mountains and often it can be dry when it is raining in Windermere 15 minutes away.
Close by is Grizedale forest with it's bike trails and sculpture trails. In the valley below Mountain view there is a steam railway which links the village with the lake,also in the village is a really interesting motor museum and of course a few minutes away is Lake Windermere and Fellfoot park NT.
Across form Fellfoot are the Lake Steamers and the Lakes aquarium this is where the steam railway ends. There is even a beach only 20 minutes away complete with sand dunes.
Just a walk up the road there is the Bigland estate with coarse and game fishing as well as a riding stables. So there is almost too much to do whatever the weather. In the same direction is the quaint village of Cartmel known for horse racing, sticky toffee pudding and the near by Holker Hall with it's garden festival.

"Lovely place to stay even in the rain"
A surprising house but in a good way as its much bigger than it looks..(2 kitchens !).really comfortable and homely eg woodburning stove but stylish too eg rolltop bath downstairs and we loved being able to walk out onto the hills literally from the front door. Although we didnt have any small children in our party it would be great for kids...there is a treehouse and a stream in the garden.
It is at the top of a hill so good views towards the mountains.
Our only quibble was there wasnt a decent pub nearby.
