Relax and unwind amongst elegant interiors and luxurious furnishings, after a day exploring fantastic fells and gentle walks along the Loweswater and Crummock shoreline.

If you'd like to gather family or friends in a stunning Georgian house at the foot of the Cumbrian fells, then this property could be the perfect place for you. Furthermore, if your ideal holiday home is refurbished to the highest standards with elegant interiors, luxurious furnishings, indulgent bathrooms and a warm and welcoming feel then you've certainly found the right place. Nestled in beautiful Loweswater in the Lorton Vale and sleeping up to 10 in five beautiful bedrooms, this is a Jane Austen fantasy of a house brought lovingly into the 21st century with every possible comfort.

Loweswater is a picturesque scattering of houses along the flank of the Lorton Vale. This area is a tranquil haven with towering mountains and three beautiful lakes. The property sits at the foot of Low Fell, in an enviable position for making the most of the unparalleled walking opportunities that this area offers. Well prepared walkers could take on one of the mightier peaks such as Grassmoor or Whiteside and reward themselves with a meal and a pint at a local pub. Crummock Water and Loweswater are within easy range of the house, why not pack a picnic and find a spot along their shores? You could even try a wild swim or at least a paddle in Crummock or Buttermere's crystal-clear water. Cyclists are well catered for with quiet roads, undulating bridleways and iconic mountain passes all within easy reach. The Sustrans Coast to Coast route even goes right past the door!

If you'd like to explore slightly further afield there's plenty to do. Families will love Whinlatter Forest Park which is just 6 miles away. There are miles of forest trails, a high ropes course, an excellent cafe and even a Gruffalo that your woodland sprites can find. Cockermouth is a charming Georgian town seven miles from the property, well known for being Wordsworth's birthplace, it's now a bustling hub with a delightful array of independent shops and eateries. Why not head to the Lake District's adventure capital, Keswick, just over Whinlatter Pass? Explore your wilder side by getting out ghyll scrambling, climbing or kayaking alternatively take in a play or concert at the beautifully situated Theatre by the Lake. So, whether you'd like to get outdoors and explore Lakeland's wilder side, enjoy fabulous local food and drink or just indulge yourself by staying in a simply beautiful historical holiday home then this property is the ideal place.

This characterful holiday home is an exceptional Georgian cottage for up to ten people in the glorious Lorton Vale. Refurbished to a very high standard this former gentleman's residence makes an indulgent base for a gathering of family or friends. The owners have used a subtle palette of heritage colours, sumptuous furnishings, well-chosen art and 21st century comforts to create a holiday home you'll want to visit time and time Again.
