Those looking for accommodation for a large party need look no further than this superb detached manor house, which has the space to sleep up to 18 people.With seven bedrooms, this imposing yet elegant manor house is the perfect solution for anyone looking to house a large gathering of family or friends. There is a sitting room with open fire, and there's also a kitchen. The garden is part of a shared area, although there is a private patio with ample opportunity for a spot of outdoor dining. For eating in, there is a dining room with a huge table to seat the full complement of 18 guests. The views from this property take in the Kentmere Valley, the Lakeland Falls and Morecambe Bay, and are truly breathtaking.

Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

Town: Staveley is situated between Kendal and Windermere and has gained a reputation as the Gateway to the Lakes. It is mainly comprised of picturesque, grey slate buildings, sandwiched between the Rivers Kent and Gowan. This once forested area was grazed as early as 4000BC. Iron Age farmers settled first and were followed by the English and Scandinavians and evidence of these early civilizations can be found throughout the region. The village has an excellent range of amenities including a variety of shops, three pubs, a craft shop and a Railway Station. Nearby, Windermere and Ambleside are better known than Chipping and offer a number of attractions such as boat trips on Lake Windemere and a ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park.
