Spacious and tastefully decorated, first-floor corner apartment in a beautiful former country house located in an elevated position above Esthwaite Water and with easy access to local scenic walks.

One of the lesser known lakes in the region, Esthwaite Water is no less beautiful and was, in fact, Beatrix Potter’s favourite lake in the region. Visitors can enjoy scenic walks around the edge of the lake, try their luck at fishing or even take a specialist osprey safari boat trip. Just one mile from the property is the village of Hawkshead, which has a choice of interesting shops and pubs and a number of interesting National Trust properties, including the Beatrix Potter Gallery.

Approaching the property up the sweeping drive, guests will immediately feel that this is a really special place to enjoy a break in the Lakes. The main living area of the property is an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which has stunning double aspect views of the apartment’s beautiful surroundings, including the lake itself, the property’s woodland estate and the mountains beyond. Here, guests will find a dining table seating four, comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, hi-fi and ipod dock. To the rear of the room is the kitchen area, which was refitted in 2016 and is well-equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher. Both of the property’s tastefully decorated bedrooms have woodland views. The master bedroom is a spacious super king-size room which offers a contemporary en suite shower room, whilst the other is a zip-and-link twin room which can be made up as king-size upon request. The bathroom has an elegant roll top bath / shower over the bath and WC.

Outside, the estate enjoys 40-acres of shared gardens and woodland, which guests have full access to. Wandering down to the lake, there is private access to the shore - a perfect spot for enjoying a picnic. Younger guests will enjoy the play area, with swings, a climbing frame, and outdoor table tennis tables. There is off-road parking for provided.

Well equipped apartment in a great location with fantastic lake views and good value for money. The 20 minute walk to Hawkshead is 70% on the road which has to be taken into account if you have small children and dont want to take the car. Overall great accommodation in well maintained gardens.

We stayed in Hawkshead in the Broomriggs cottages. The accommodation was high standard and the price per week was more than acceptable. The location was absolutely gorgeous and an ideal spot to explore a lot of stunning sights in the lake district.

It is important to note that these are apartments and not individual dwellings. Therefore one has to be considerate of others. Also, whilst the grounds are totally accessible, it is not possible to step out through patio doors for example and relax outside the lounge. Just on a footnote, the warden Allan; is extremely helpful and very knowledgeableRead more about the area. Ask him about the walk at the rear of the property over to Moss Eccles Tarn. Hide

This flat has everything one needs, plus the bonus of being surrounded by woodland and a view to a lake. The recent refurbishment has added to the comfort and cleanliness.

Broomriggs is a wonderful estate. Flat 11 has fantastic views and very comfortable. Having done lots of local walks, we have begun to explore Coniston both round the lake, up to Tarn Hows and across to Little Langdale.
