Ladyholme presents a modern yet cosy and romantic atmosphere so whether you are coming to explore the infinite beauty of the Lake District, to celebrate your honeymoon or just to simply escape your life for a short while, Ladyholme is perfect to do all that and more!
The Park has a small shop, meaning you are only a short, scenic stroll away from retrieving your morning paper, Hill of Oaks also has a fantastic array of boating facilities which you are welcome to use, making it even easier to explore the Lake! Ladyholme occupies the perfect location, being far enough away from civilization for you to enjoy a quiet weekend away in the Lake District, but still only being a ten minute drive from the thriving village of Bowness.
Accommodation In Detail
Ladyholme forms part of a Lakeside stone mill providing a first floor apartment with breathtaking views over Windermere, within the luxury lake frontage setting of Hill of Oaks Park.
Parking is beside the property and access is via the internal staircase. Patio doors lead from the lounge to the balcony overlooking Lake Windermere and comfortable leather sofas, log burning stove and large screen TV are all arranged to benefit from the beautiful views. The open plan kitchen is well equipped with electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher and the family dining table is the ideal spot for a hearty Lakeland breakfast or dinner with the family.
The two bedrooms are well furnished and both include TVs. The first offers a king size double and ensuite shower room with shower cubicle, basin and WC. The second is presented with twin beds
Ladyholme is ideally located right in the 'heart of the Lakes', only a few miles from Bowness village - the perfect base to begin to explore all the delights that the Lakes have to offer! Bowness is a contemporary Lake District village on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake and one of the most picturesque destinations in the UK. The village is buzzing with cafes and restaurants serving local Lakeland delights and there is plenty of choice for an evening out including a cinema, theatre and even a lakeshore nightclub!
There are handy greengrocers, supermarkets and sophisticated, independent shops for leisurely browsing. Stunning Lake Windermere offers all sorts of activities. You may enjoy taking a sunset wander on the lakeshore or hiring a rowing boat for a bit of fun. You can also take a car ferry from Bowness to the west shore of Lake Windermere, where Beatrix Potter's magical countryside and the honeypot village of Hawkshead are waiting to be explored.
Walkers will love exploring the paths and fells around Lake Windermere. For example, Gummers How is a short steep route to a viewpoint high above the Lake (well worth the effort!) and the Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank, Bowland Bridge, is the ideal pub to visit for refuelling afterwards. If you are a serious hiker then many of the most spectacular and challenging mountains of the Lake District are within easy driving distance.
Ullswater is only a 45 minute drive from Ladyholme along the famous route; The Kirkstone Pass. Here you can take a Steamer across Ullswater from Glenridding all the way to Pooley Bridge, enjoying the never-ending views as you glide along England's most beautiful Lake.
Another option would be to visit the village of 'Ravenglass', if you somehow get sick of Lake views this coastal village can offer you a Roman Bath house and the Lake Districts longest, oldest and of course most scenic railway (The Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway).
As a Guest at Hill of Oaks, you will receive two tickets to either Ullswater Steamers or Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway so you can take your Lake District holiday to a whole new level.
