East Cleabarrow is unique. It offers a window back in time to the early 1900s and the Arts and Crafts movement whilst still providing a comfortable home from home with all the mod cons to hand. Sleeping 6 people in 3 large bedrooms, the house is not suitable for under 12s, but if you like something that is not run of the mill take a look and fall in love with this amazing house. All the rooms are full of character, with furniture, paintings and ornaments representing over a hundred years of happy family holidays since the house was built in 1900, but 'The Long Room' still stands out. An upstairs sitting room with beautiful views, packed with original features 'The Long Room' is really special. Gather family and friends together and make some wonderful memories in this timelessly elegant room. The wooded garden to the side of the house contains a little summerhouse overlooking the orchard, purpose built for lazy summer days and al fresco dining. Relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of this gorgeous spot.

Located just outside the bustling town of Bowness, East Cleabarrow enjoys the perfect combination of a peaceful rural setting yet it is still only a short distance from all the local amenities and attractions. Windermere Golf Club is nearby as is The Dales Way footpath which offers an easy walk of just over a mile into Bowness, with beautiful views of Windermere on the way. Footpaths also lead to Staveley, Windermere and over to Gilpin Lodge where you can enjoy a meal. Walkers and non-walkers alike can catch the car ferry across the lake to Sawrey for lakeshore and woodland walks over Claife Heights, Beatrix Potter's home at Hilltop and the pretty village of Hawkshead. Bowness is the home of the Windermere Lake cruises, opening up the whole length of the lake and it's many attractions without having to take the car. Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, Motor museum, Aquarium of the Lakes, Wray Castle, Brockhole and Ambleside can all be reached by boat.

For those who want to travel further afield or maybe explore areas a little less known, East Cleabarrow is perfectly placed. Kendal is only a short drive away and offers a good range of independent shops, many arranged in little pedestrian 'courts'. Explore the beautiful quiet Lyth Valley, famous for its damsons, take a trip to Cartmel to sample their Sticky Toffee pudding or visit Grange-over-sands where a walk along the prom may be a little different from what you expect. Fell walkers have easy access to the Kentmere and Fairfield Horseshoes. Cyclists will be spoilt for choice with a network of quiet roads and paths to explore, whilst craft of all shapes and sizes can be hired to take to the water on Windermere.
