Slate steps lead up to the front door and into a spacious hallway, with a cushioned bench seat and hanging space ideal for taking off outdoor gear. Stepping through the inner door takes you into a wide, angular hall which leads off to the right to the bedrooms and the left to the open-plan living space. You receive a warm welcome the moment you step through the door, with soft carpets, elegant decor and sumptuous furnishings, complementing the fascinating contours and features of this stunning manor house.
The open-plan living area offers a sociable space for relaxing, cooking, playing games and eating together. The well-equipped kitchen is complete with electric hob, grill and fan oven, under-counter fridge (a freezer is also available in the storage/drying room in the hall), washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. There is lots of storage to house the ample crockery, cutlery, glassware and cooking equipment, and plenty of worktop space ideal for preparing family meals. The owners have also thoughtfully supplied home comforts like the Nespresso coffee machine (just bring your own capsules), and useful essentials such as dishcloths, tea towels, washing-up liquid and dishwasher tablets, making packing for a trip here a breeze.
We'll forgive you for not noticing the kitchen when you first arrive, however; the raised dining area, housed in an unusual turret in the corner of the communal space, draws you in with unparalleled views from its five picture windows. Here, you are sure to while away many a mealtime absorbed by the ever-changing view of the Langdale Pikes and Coniston Fells, and enjoying abundant wildlife which Colwith is so lucky to have on its doorstep. The dining table comfortably seats four and offers splendid views from each place setting so nobody need miss out.
A cosy and comfortable lounge area offers a delightful space to relax with a glass of wine in the evening. A large, comfortable, leather sofa, heaped with beautiful cushions, is set around a warming log-effect stove. A flat-screen Smart TV, DVD player and Bose Soundlink Mini entertain all ages, with a whole host of DVDs, games, novels, guidebooks and maps available for guests to enjoy.
The master bedroom is a delightful room with a kingsize bed overlooking the garden and craggy fells beyond. It has a restful and homely feel, with a deep window sill, coordinating hand-painted furniture, elegant fabrics and plenty of storage space for all your belongings.
At the end of the hall, the twin bedroom, with its magnificent fell top views, comfortable decor and homely touches, is a calming and tranquil place to relax at the end of a busy day. It's ideal for both children and adults alike, and its good-sized walk-in wardrobe makes good use of the space and keeps the room clutter free.
Back in the hallway, a walk-in utility room/storage cupboard houses the boiler and is an ideal place for drying outdoor gear after a wet day on the fells. The family bathroom has a toilet, washbasin, bath and separate walk-in shower, and the heated toilet rail offers warmth. It is immaculately presented with slate-effect tiles and a stylish industrial-look mirror.
The warm and homely atmosphere throughout this property is complemented by its stylish interiors, individual furnishings and charming prints, to provide a luxury home-from-home accommodation for families and couples alike.
The rugged south-facing garden links seamlessly with the surrounding landscape to provide a place of tranquillity perfect for enjoying the ever-changing scenery and the wealth of wildlife who call it home. Two seating areas offer an ideal spot to enjoy an evening meal or relax with a morning coffee while planning your day's adventure. The lack of light pollution in this area of the National Park, makes it a great spot for star-gazing too.
On the estate, less than 100m from your front door, you can enjoy shared use of the indoor leisure facilities. The family-friendly heated swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and table tennis offer a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Please note, the swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna are closed November-March. At the moment, these facilities are not available as a result of the official restrictions that remain in place because of Covid. Please contact the office if you have any questions.
