Uplands Retreat, a charming studio apartment on the first floor that sleeps two people, is located in Cumbria, perched near Windermere Lake in the breathtaking surroundings of the Lake District National Park. Uplands Retreat is an ideal base for couples or groups of friends looking to experience a special getaway. It offers stunning views of the rural countryside, private parking, and a convenient position close to services and a variety of attractions. As you enter the property, uncover a generously-equipped kitchen with all the essential appliances needed to make your self-catered stay a success.  Enjoy a romantic meal at the quaint dining table for two on the first floor and toast to an amazing trip over a bottle of fizz.  Nearby, there is a sizable sitting area with a Smart TV and plush leather sofa that is ideal for curling up on after a long day of exploration. A comfortable double bed and a modern shower room complete the first-floor studio layout, making it the perfect spot to unwind before going to bed or to start your morning before exploring the area. From the property's doorstep, choose from a wide range of bars, pubs, cafes, and restaurants that serve hearty cuisine, exquisite wines, and ales. On nights when you don't feel like cooking, treat your significant other at one of these venues. The Windermere Golf Club is about 1 mile away.  The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction is nearby and offers a variety of contemporary exhibits devoted to the famed children's author.  If you want to view the former writer's home, travel to Ambleside where the National Trust maintains the 17th century cottage, Hill Top.  Spend the day at Lake Windermere for a variety of watersports like paddleboarding, kayaking, and canoeing, or for a more leisurely day, sail across the lake to Ambleside where, in the summer, you can ride a horse-drawn carriage from the centre to Waterhead Pier. Explore Rydal Cave, scramble up Scafell Pike, or learn more about aquatic life at Lakes Aquarium. The well-known villages of Ulverston and Kendal, which are home to the Stott Bobbin Mill and Kendal Golf Club, are also close by. Bring your loved one to Uplands Retreat for an amazing holiday.
