General Information

On arrival at Oakfield House you are greeted by a long leafy driveway leading up to the beautiful shared grounds and imposing facade of the Victorian house. There is shared access thorough the large front door through which you will find a spacious hallway. Upstairs is the entrance to Derwent View. Once inside the apartment you are greeted by a beautiful grandfather clock and the entrances to the living room, the kitchen /dining room and the single bedroom. There is also a convenient lavatory room on this floor.

The elegant living room has two lovely sash windows, with a stunning view across to Keswick, Borrowdale and Derwentwater itself. The room is handsomely furnished and also has a television and DVD player. Double doors from the hallway lead to the dining area and well equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and washing machine. It also benefits from a built in oven and halogen hobs. There is a lovely window seat here to sit and enjoy a view of the grounds and visiting birdlife.

From the hallway you ascend the wide staircase to the second floor. Above your head you'll see some of the wonderful architectural features of this stunning Victorian building. From the upper landing you first come to the spacious twin with en-suite bathroom. This lovely room has views out onto the leafy grounds. Then you'll find the exquisite king size room, this has two tall sash windows with that glorious, far-reaching view to Derwentwater and beyond to the Borrowdale valley. This room also benefits from a beautiful en-suite shower room with large walk in shower enclosure.

Outside guests can enjoy the wonderful shared terraced garden and pond area which overlooks a magnificent panorama of mountains. What more perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening glass of wine?
