Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 4
This traditional coach house marks the entrance to Lake Windermere's breathtaking Pullwood Bay Estate.

The prestigious estate offers 50 acres of scenic grounds and over half a mile of estate-owned lake shore. The coach house retains some lovely original features. You'll find a cosy retreat for couples, or a great base for a family holiday with walks abound in the surrounding area as well as within the grounds of the estate. The Drunken Duck, one of the most famous Lake District country pubs, is only a stroll away and Ambleside village is within 2 miles.

Pullwood Bay is a great place to start if you're planning to explore the whole Lake District. Its location is right at the heart of the Lakes. Hawkshead and the home of Beatrix Potter are very close by, as are such scenic areas as the Langdale Valley and Coniston.
