This delightful and lovingly restored late Georgian country gentleman's residence offers a unique opportunity to experience the bygone days of gracious family living. Peacefully set behind tall gates and surrounded by steep woodland and terraced grounds, it boasts a grand and stylish interior, elegantly furnished with antiques one of its sitting rooms has a charming library area and the large snooker room houses a bar. It sits in the Lake District National Park, just 3 miles from Bowness-on-Windermere, a vibrant, bustling town in a superb lakeside setting with lovely views. Pleasure cruisers and steamers ply up and down the lake, and a car ferry runs to the far side, taking visitors to Sawrey and Hawkshead. As well as a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants and a wide range of shops, Bowness also offers plenty to see and do including the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Steamboat Museum, an 18 hole 'pitch and put', sailing marinas and cycle hire. Also just a short drive away is the interesting market town of Kendal (5 miles), known as the gateway to the Southern Lakes. This corner of the National Park affords wonderful scenic rambles, and visitors will find a great choice of walks to suit all abilities. The village pub, cafe and garage are all within a short walk.
