Property code: 78278

Beautiful modern new-build first-floor adults only apartment, with a choice of balconies and views across the river or over to the historic Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway.

This wonderful property, situated just half a mile from the Lakeland Motor Museum, is the perfect romantic retreat for two. Set on the banks of the River Leven, this adults-only apartment is just 3 miles from Fell Foot Park where you can take tranquil walks or even enjoy a dip in the lake. And when it’s time to come home, you can cuddle up on the sofa and chat about your plans for tomorrow in the open-plan living area.

The property, which is less than a mile from a popular pub, is contemporary and comfortable. The open-plan living area is filled with light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows; sit and enjoy a coffee on the balcony from here in the mornings. Take a sumptuous soak in the bath in the sleek and stylish bathroom after a long day out walking, before snuggling into the king-size bed in the tranquil bedroom. Wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day, whether you’re spending the day out hiking or taking a stroll around the nearby museums.

Poetry lovers must visit Wordsworth’s Dove Cottage in Grasmere (18.5 miles) – if you were a fan of Beatrix Potter when you were a child, then you’ll be pleased to find her home, Hill Top, is just 8 miles away. Amble around the Lakeland Miniature Village (7 miles) to while away a couple of hours, or for a bit more adrenaline book a treetop adventure at Go Ape Grizedale (7.5 miles). Take a historic boat tour on the National Trust’s Victorian Steam Yacht Gondola on Coniston Water (12 miles) if you’re visiting in the spring or summer and soak up the stunning views while learning about the area’s rich history.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
