The property

This sophisticated Lakeland residence is breathtaking inside and out, with panoramic glorious views through enormous windows, elegant living space for your sociable gathering. Highbeck stands alongside Highbeck Cottage within a secluded 3 acres of gardens and grounds, a stroll from the village of Crosthwaite and the award-winning Punchbowl Inn. The property is beautifully presented; retaining the charm of old oak beams, fireplace and chic country kitchen, but completing the luxurious picture with sleek polished floors, luxurious leather furnishings and crisp hotel-style bedrooms. The beautiful sun terrace gazes out over the far reaching views, what a great place to relax with a glass of something and soak up the peace and tranquility of this setting. This is a wonderful retreat for two couples, or an unforgettable escape for family being only a short drive from the attractions and entertainment of Bowness and Lake Windermere. Highbeck Sleeps 4 will only be available as Highbeck - sleeping 8 going forward, Please click the link to go to the Highbeck listing. Accommodation in detail A sweeping gravel driveway leads to the property with steps leading to the entrance and large sun terrace. Enter via a quarry tiled porch and elegant entrance hall, leading to the stunning lounge with a wall of glass providing the views. The room is beautifully furnished around the easy gas fire, and leads to a 'snug' with patio doors back to the sun terrace. The reception kitchen / dining room is perfect for sociable gatherings, with ample dining space, and separate pantry. Both bedrooms are scenic, spacious and comfortably furnished. Two luxury shower rooms and separate WC. Accommodation is on the ground floor and the first floor is private and never used whilst the property is occupied by guests. Location This sophisticated rural Lake District holiday home lies only a stroll from the small village of Crosthwaite, in the north of the Lyth Valley and only a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The Lyth Valley lies to the east of Lake Windermere, riddled with picturesque walking and cycling routes and renowned as a peaceful landscape compared to busier Lake District holiday destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside. But you'll never be too far from Lake Windermere, shops and restaurants in Bowness and the main driven route into the heart of the Lakes. The Lyth Valley is also renowned for its scattering of high-class country pub restaurants, one of which stands only a stroll away from Highbeck. The Punchbowl Inn has long been regarded as one of the finest Lake District gastropubs, well worth a visit and nestling alongside a pretty old church. If you choose self-catering accommodation in the Lyth Valley during spring, you'll witness something else this valley is famous for; renowned for their annual harvest of damsons, orchards throughout the valley give rise to stunning damson blossom in spring. The old market town of Kendal is also easily accessible from Crosthwaite, with a wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as entertainment for all ages at the Brewery Arts Centre.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 5 miles; Kendal 6 miles.

Crosthwaite is a small village set in the picturesque Lyth Valley, famous for its damson trees, and boasts a lovely pub known nationally for its excellent food. The lakeside towns of Windermere and Bowness are nearby, with plenty of activities, interest and entertainment for all ages. Also within easy reach is the popular market town of Kendal, an historic Lakeland town with a fine reputation for shopping. Kendal nestles on the banks of the River Kent. Its old cobbled lanes and byways branch off the attractive main street, and the stone ruins of 12th century Kendal Castle sit perched on a hill with views over the town. Both Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall with its superb Topiary Garden, are nearby, as are limestone escarpments for easy walking, offering thrilling views of the Lakeland Mountains, the Howgills and Morecambe Bay.
