    “Everyone adored the property, it is absolutely beautiful and very well looked after.”

    We stayed for a bridal party and mixed our time between the house and out in the local area. We could not fault anything and really appreciated all the little touches. The only negative points were that there were no binbags at all and we were unable to buy any from the local Londis (they gave us 4 of their own bags) and finally, the BBQ was very dirty we could not use it (which we planned to do Sat night). We would 100% love to stay at the property again and are already looking at future ...

The property

Tucked away in the quiet village of Witherslack, at the end of an unadopted lane, is this charming and imposing holiday home. Grove House is a tranquil and homely setting for your next group adventure to the Lake District. A truly special location, offering incredible views, absolute peace and quiet and what feels like your very own private slice of the Lake District.The rental gives you exclusive access to the whole 14 acres, main house and annex, along with neighbouring barn. All the buildings you see in the pictures are all included in your rental. This is a true retreat, a place where you can unwind, with just your closest friends, and likely not see another individual the whole time you’re at The Grove. Travel along the impressive driveway towards the striking holiday home, sitting in a prominent position overlooking the expanse of greenery that encompasses the property, parking up alongside the idle barn, before heading inside. Grove House consists of a main house, as well as a charming annexe, accessed via an external doorway, offering the perfect self-contained accommodation for a small family. Stepping into the main house, you're welcomed into the newly installed kitchen/living area, beautifully decorated with a modern farmhouse-style interior, boasting a huge electric range cooker with induction hob and cosy seating area, along with a huge kitchen island with bar stools, alongside a woodburning stove, housing the essential amenities, including a washing machine and two dishwashers, in the adjoining utility room, along with downstairs WC. The kitchen has been installed to the highest of standards with granite worktops throughout. Continuing through the property, gather your guests around the large twelve seater dining table, to serve up a hearty meal, where you can enjoy some long overdue quality time together, planning your next adventure over a bottle of wine in front of a newly installed log burning stove, nestled in the original, large open stone fireplace. Then settle down for the evening to enjoy a movie night in the large sitting room, enveloping the space with the warmth from another newly installed log burning stove in the colder months, or escape with your loved one for an intimate moment together in the welcoming snug and enjoy a fire and a glass of wine. You are really spoiled for choice when choosing where to relax. Stepping outside, continue the celebrations with a seat on the patio, toasting with a glass of fizz and a remarkable backdrop of beautifully maintained gardens and far-reaching views of unspoilt countryside. As the day draws to a close, head upstairs to prepare for bed, indulging in a leisurely soak in the bath, or a rejuvenating rinse in one of the walk in showers in either of the king bedrooms. When sleep calls, rest your head in one of the four beautifully-appointed bedrooms, choosing between the three king-size rooms, two of which benefit from their own en-suite shower room, newly installed and finished to an incredibly high standard, and the twin room, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for varying party make ups. All bedrooms have gone through an extension renovation and are kitted out to the highest possible standard. You'll find two additional bedrooms in the annexe which have been completely overhauled, both benefiting from brand new en-suites. One set up as a walk in shower and wet room, the other a huge bathroom with pitched ceilings, a huge double shower, free standing bath and WC. The downstairs annex now features a bar area, with sky TV and a huge pool table, and downstairs WC perfect for gatherings. Finally there is an office space, perfect for those who wish to work while they spend time in the lakes, there is enough space for 3-4 people. The village of Witherslack boasts a handy convenience store where you can pick up any forgotten essentials, along with a traditional country pub, The Derby Arms, serving fresh locally sourced produce and regularly hosting live music events. Furthermore, there are a large number of beautiful walks in the area, for those not wanting to tackle to highest mountains, or those happy to avoid the crowds. Likewise Witherslack offers some protected AONB at Foulshaw Moss, and some unique bird watching with the nesting Ospreys nearby. Added to that the 2500 acres horse-riding retreat which is one of the largest in the country and some incredible mountain biking, means Witherslack has an awful lot to offer for such a small village. The nearby costal town of Grange-over-Sands offers a wider selection of shopping opportunities and eateries to choose from, along with a delightful promenade, where you can take a leisurely stroll alongside Morecambe Bay, soaking in the panoramic views across the water, as well as an 18-hole golf course to test your swing. Travel further afield to the settlement of Lakeside, nestled at the southern end of Lake Windermere, to join the Windermere Lake Cruise, voyaging the largest natural lake in England to the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, home to The World of Beatrix Potter and the Michelin Star award-winning restaurant, HRiSHi. Lace up your walking boots and explore the varying landscape of Whitbarrow National Nature Reserve, climbing through woodland and limestone to the summit, Lord's Seat, providing far-reaching views across Morecambe Bay and The Howgill Fells. For your next group celebration to The Lake District, choose a stay at Grove House.

The small village of Witherslack lies tucked beneath Whitbarrow Scar, in a lovely area running south east from the shores of Lake Windermere, encompassing fell, woodland, river and valley bottom. The village consists of a huddle of fine, stone built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. Nearby Lindale has a true 'Lakeland feel' with its narrow streets, traditional dwellings and quaint old pubs, while Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race meetings, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands are all worth a visit. With Lake Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead a short drive away, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.
