Luxury meets comfort in this magnificent, secluded bolt-hole. It offers the perfect home-from-home experience if you wish to escape the stresses of modern life and immerse yourself in the stunning landscape. Colwith forms part of Neaum Crag, a fairytale manor house that is believed to date back to the 1500s. This character property nestles in an idyllic location on a private wooded estate and overlooks the striking Langdale Pikes and Coniston Fells. Its unique, angular shape and prominent position on a craggy elevation complement the fabulous rough stone used in the build to give the property a seamless link to the rugged scenery in which it resides.

If you can tear yourself away from this lovely home, a wealth of walks lead off in all directions from the front door. Gentle strolls along the River Brathay, Loughrigg Tarn and Elterwater allow you to explore splendid scenery without any strenuous climbs, while Coniston Old Man, Loughrigg Fell and the Langdale Pikes provide a more challenging hike and panoramic views of the national park. Colwith is ideal if you wish for a car-free holiday; the delightful Lakeland villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Coniston are all accessible on foot and have good public transport routes; nearby, the superb Britannia Inn, Wainwright's Inn and Chesters by the River offer excellent food and drink and a welcoming atmosphere. If the weather is wet or you're simply looking to relax, Colwith guests can enjoy shared use of the Neaum Crag's indoor leisure facilities, which are less than 100m away. The heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna are sure to invigorate you, and table tennis is a fun way to spend an hour or two. Please note, the swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna are closed November to March.

Located in the heart of the Lake District National Park, Colwith is an excellent choice for those wishing to explore the wider area with the above and much more to keep you busy!
