    “It was perfect for our family get together.”

    The property was beautiful and so tastefully decorated. We had two young children with us who didn't want to go out and happy playing in the snug and games room. I would definitely recommend

The property

This detached Lakeland home, Pheasants Folly, is located on the eastern banks of Lake Windermere. Pheasants Folly, which offers breath-taking views of Lake Windermere, is a superb base to stay while exploring the Lakelands; after a day of walking, take off your shoes at the front porch and enter the underfloor heated hallway and cloakroom. Downstairs is the lounge, there, you will find sofas, a wood-burning stove, a Smart TV with soundbar, and stylish wallpaper and artwork. Bring the conversation into the kitchen, where you can whip up a feast for everyone before serving it in the spacious dining area, which affords a stunning lakeside view. A pool/air hockey table is also included so you can challenge the group on rainy days, as well as a utility room which has a washer and dryer, for your laundry needs. Upstairs, a super-king-size bed with an en-suite shower, a super-king-size with a snug that offers a peaceful place to read and an additional TV, a king-size with an en-suite shower, and a king-size, all feature breath-taking views of Lake Windermere. Completing the interior is the family bathroom with a bath, basin, and WC. Use the expansive, sloping garden, which has a patio area with outdoor furniture ideal for dining alfresco, during the summer months or give the chef a break by dining at a Windermere restaurant; you might choose Francine's for some fresh seafood or the Gilpin Spice for some continental Asian fare. Take a walk around High Dam, Finisthwaite or up Gummer's How for far reaching views that take in Coniston and the estuary or visit The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, where contemporary exhibits are devoted to the renowned children's author, or practice your swing at the Windermere Golf Club. Next, travel to Ambleside to find Beatrix Potter's former house, Hill Top, which is owned by the National Trust. Get a fresh viewpoint of the scene by boarding a vintage steamboat, then disembark at Ambleside and climb Claife Heights' summit to be rewarded with panoramic views. Take the entire family on a unique stay to Pheasants Folly.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
