If you are looking for the perfect holiday house to let in England’s Lake District then Swinsty provides an exceptionally well-appointed solution. Sleeping 9, Swinsty is ideally situated both as a tranquil haven for walking and relaxing locally and as a base to explore all the attractions that the Lakes has to offer.
Originally built in 1679, the house has been renovated and refurbished to provide high quality holiday accommodation. The traditional, original Lakeland stone of the exterior is complemented by rooms finished in contemporary comfort and design style.
Located in the breathtaking landscape of unspoilt Martindale, Swinsty is situated in rolling valley farmland with its own walled garden and enclosed parking. It has a lovely terrace for eating out and drinking in the magnificent views. A Lakeland beck trickles past its driveway. The owner's family have been associated with the area for over 80 years.
Magnificent Lake Ullswater is just 1 mile away: second largest of the lakes, and many think the loveliest. There you can swim, picnic , walk or sail on Ullswater's steamer boat.
Challenging or more leisurely walks are on the doorstep. This is walkers' paradise. And as you would expect from truly unspoilt countryside there is interesting wildlife to be seen, including red squirrels, badgers, red deer, owls, herons, kestrels, and buzzards.
Swinsty is situated at the end of a long no through road from Pooley Bridge that skirts the south side of Ullswater. So there is absolutely no traffic and it remains quiet even in high summer. Yet access is easy with Penrith and the M6 just 30 minutes away by car and the nearby small village of Pooley Bridge is just 15 minutes drive away.
