  • “The Grange is a stunning property that was perfectly located and suited to the needs of our two families.”

    The top floor was a haven for the three teenagers and they loved the games room too (along with the Dad's). We had everything we needed to cook meals in and there was lots to choose from for meals out (Windermere - 5/10 min walk & Bowness 25 min walk). Thankfully the weather was kind and we enjoyed lots of walks nearby with stunning scenery and a 2hr boat hire on the lake was well worth it. The Dad's managed a couple of games of golf too.

    The top floor was a haven for the three teenagers and they loved the games room too (along with the Dad's). We had everything we needed to cook meals in and there was lots to choose from for meals out (Windermere - 5/10 min walk & Bowness 25 min walk). Thankfully the weather was kind and we enjoyed lots of walks nearby with stunning scenery and a 2hr boat hire on the lake was well worth it. The Dad's managed a couple of games of golf too. We did have a some issues with the wifi (and connected heating), but this was quickly fixed by Lakelovers maintenance or by speaking direct to the owner. The only other feedback is that our friends who slept in the large/master bedroom, found the mattress/bed very soft and sagging in the middle. This did cause some sleepless nights and sore backs. Whilst we appreciate that everyone has different preferences to mattress firmness, this did seem unusually soft. That apart, we would definitely come back and stay again the next time we visit this stunning part of the country.

The property

Whilst being only a five minute stroll from the heart of Windermere village centre, this imposing Lakeland residence, encapsulates Lake District luxury living, commanding magnificent panoramic views over Lake Windermere and the timeless Lakeland fells beyond. Newly renovated and restored, this period property will capture your hearts making for a perfect holiday at any time of the year. Spacious and gracious sum up this magical place - a place to unwind and spend precious time in the company of friends and family. == Accommodation in detail Entrance porch and a first sight into this captivating residence; spacious dining / hall, perfect for formal gatherings with great food, even better wine and conversation late into the night. The drawing room has a splayed bay window commanding spectacular views; this room is for total relaxation. The breakfast kitchen literally has it all, including hidden panels to pop out a TV; even 'Nigella' would feel at home in here. The rear lobby gives access to a cloakroom and the rear of the property where a courtyard patio makes a perfect setting for breakfast on sunny mornings. There is also access to the cellars where the games room offers fabulous games for all ages including pool, air hockey, Wii and a DVD player. The original magnificent staircase ascends to the first floor, where from the Master Bedroom the views over the lake get even better. This bedroom is an homage to Victorian life with French Antique furniture including a king sized bed, and delightful en-suite facility. Also located on the first floor is a separate suite with a further king size bed and en-suite bathroom. Upwards and onwards takes one to 'The Loft Suite' - wow, what a room this is with breathtaking views and en-suite facility, the room is divided by the staircase giving two distinct sleeping areas - two rooms in one. This is perfect for families with a child. The writer of this would instinctively plump for this room - expect some debate!! The shared lawned gardens are delightful around 3/4 of an acre, with superb views from the terrace inviting guests to enjoy al-fresco living or maybe for just a glass or two in the evening sunshine. Location This unique self-catering property offers easy access to the lake shore, and also the popular villages of Windermere and Bowness. Windermere village centre is just a five minute walk away, ideal for stocking up the kitchen; there you'll find a large Booths supermarket well stocked with the best local produce as well as everyday essentials. The High Street has a traditional butcher, several restaurants and cafes together with pubs serving real Lakeland ale. Bowness village is a busier tourist destination, just a couple of miles away. The village revolves around the boating activity of Bowness Bay, where hire boats come and go and Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside - explore without a car! Windermere Golf Club is located just outside Bowness. You'll also enjoy easy access by car or bus to other popular Lake District holiday destinations, such as Hawkshead (via the car ferry across Lake Windermere from Bowness), the Troutbeck Valley, Ullswater, Ambleside and Grasmere.
