    The rooms were very spacious . It was really clean . The only downside was as dog owners was there wasn’t a lot a walks that near for a bigger dog . We loved the area busy with cars and walkers. Definitely recommend this property .

Enjoying an elevated position above Church Beck, this award-winning property is enveloped by rural views, whilst a stone’s throw from a selection of shops, eateries, and attractions, making it an ideal base for families or groups of eight, travelling with their furry companions. Park up on the private driveway, and unload your belongings, before taking some time to appreciate your new, tranquil surroundings, in the heart of the lakes. Step indoors and make your way to the social hub of Gate House, the fully-equipped kitchen/diner, complete with state-of-the-art appliances, and country-style cabinetry, along with a formal dining table to gather, dine and socialise together. With three, homely sitting areas to select from, all featuring plush seating and a woodburning stove, retire to the reading room and delve into a good book, or flick on the Smart TV, and catch up with your favourite programmes, whilst the snug offers the perfect nook for the children of your group, complete with a PlayStation. If the sun is shining, make memories in the rear garden, fully enclosed and overlooking the river, where you can dine alfresco, over a bottle of wine, or relax the night away in the indulgent hot tub. Four, fabulous bedrooms await upstairs, all featuring Smart TVs and plenty of storage to make yourself at home, starting with two king-size bedrooms, enjoying rural views and access to private en-suite bathrooms, each with the luxury of free-standing baths and walk-in showers.
