Those with an interest in culture and history are also well-catered for in the area, with the stately home at Sizergh Castle lying six miles south of the property and is a fascinating destination for a day out, particularly when coupled with a stop at Sizergh Barn, a fantastic farm shop and tearoom, which is also home to a fun and educational farm trail.

Stepping through the apartment’s private entrance, guests will come first to a garden room which provides them with a lovely place to sit back and enjoy the views across the garden. This room, in turn, leads onto the spacious lounge/diner, an elegantly styled room with two comfortable sofas, a roaring log fire, and Smart TV and DVD as well as super-fast fibre broadband. The dining area is situated at the opposite end of the room, and makes the perfect space to enjoy leisurely meals in the evenings. Next to the dining area, the kitchen is well-equipped and offers an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer. The apartment has two bedrooms, a double and a twin, both tastefully finished to a high standard. Guests have a choice between a shower room with WC, and a bathroom which has a shower over bath and WC.

Outside, the shared riverside gardens are an attractive place to sit out and enjoy the tranquillity of the location. There are benches dotted about to give guests a quiet space to sit, but please be aware that the river is not fenced. There is parking provided for two cars and there is bike storage available.

Beautiful location and home! But: no spare toilet paper, 5 pm check in, no tea or coffee, no hot water in kitchen and one bathroom sink. Ensure you get access details before arrival, and take food.

We absolutely loved this holiday home! It was large, well-equipped and extremely comfortable. It is a little out of the way from the large towns, but it was peaceful and very relaxing. The grounds themselves are truly stunning, and we enjoyed breakfast or late drinks in the green beside the babbling brook. We plan to book again!

Gorgeous place! The surrounding gardens were beautiful with a stream and plenty of outdoor seating. The house was well presented and decorated with lots of space.

Very well equipped apartment. The journey in and out if you drive up North is on a narrow and windy road, not for the faint hearted. Aside from that, we had a wonderful stay and there were many nice decorative touches by the owner. The kitchen was the best, and had everything we needed!

A very comfortable and spacious cottage with a well equipped modern kitchen and two good bathrooms. It was lovely to light the log fire in the evening (Thank you for a full log basket). We enjoyed being able to walk straight out onto the fells - lots of beautiful walks and views surround the cottage.

A very comfortable flat - great to return to after a day out. I liked the layout, and the spacious sitting room with dining area. (Extra plusses for us: ground floor, all on one level; two good bathrooms; porch area for muddy shoes.) The garden area, with the sound of the stream, was perfect for a relaxed morning coffee before setting out somewhereRead more!
