    “Excellent apartment, location to Windermere and Bowness perfect, and great base for exploring the rest of the lakes.”

    Apartment is high quality and well equipped. Our only suggestion would be to improve the TV availability as there is no terrestrial access, where it seems a cheap cost cutting measure to avoid a licence at odds with the overall quality of the apartment

The property

Enjoying a stunning setting within the Lake District National Park and a beautiful contemporary décor with feature artwork, Wansfell At Lipwood House makes for a fantastic home-away-from-home for a group of friends or small family of four to enjoy a country escape in the heart of the Lakes. Step into the welcoming hallway with warm oak parquet flooring, where you can discard any coats and shoes after your journey. Look forward to pouring in the bubbles and enjoying a soothing soak in the bath in the traditional Victorian-style bathroom, blended with a contemporary monochrome décor. Further along the hallway, you will find two well-presented bedrooms, a super-king-size (zip/link) and a king-size with en-suite shower room, where you can indulge in a refreshing shower under the twin heads, one of which is a monsoon shower head. At the end of the hallway, you will find the social hub of the apartment, an open-plan living space, where you can conjure up tasty feasts in the well-equipped kitchen, with handy dishwasher for keeping your space tidy! Gather around the dining table to savour a tasty meal and uncork a bottle of wine to toast a wonderful getaway with your loved ones. Retreat to the sitting room where you can sink back into the plush sofa and select your favourite film from the Smart TV. Awake from a leisurely slumber and enjoy your morning coffee before setting out to explore the communal grounds. Venture into the local town, where you will find an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants just a stone’s throw away, perfect for those evenings where you fancy a night off from the kitchen. The walkers of your party will delight at the superb selection of scenic walks on offer, including the ones up Queen Adelaide’s Hill and Orrest Head which offer magnificent views over Lake Windermere. For the thrill seekers, Lake Windermere is the place to be, with a wide variety of watersports on offer including sailing, wakesurfing and kneeboarding to name a few, as well as the regular boat tours which frequently take place. Be sure to make a stop at Blackwell Arts & Crafts House, an impressive 19th-century house filled with an array of furniture and objects or head to the National Trust Claife Viewing Station where you can soak up the fantastic surrounding scenery on a 4-mile ambling trail. Just a little further is the town of Kendal, where you can delve into the local history at the Kendal Museum, learn more about the town’s rich tapestry heritage at the Quaker Tapestry Museum or explore the fascinating remains of the former Kendal Castle which features ruined towers and hidden vaults.
