Just imagine gathering all your family or friends together in the magnificent surroundings of historical Winder Hall nestled in beautiful Lorton Vale. This is a house that is even mentioned in the Domesday Book and has entertained Royalty in the past. Here you can enjoy an evening cocktail in your own formal gardens that overlook the Lake District mountains. This splendid house offers accommodation for between 14 and 16 in seven distinctive bedrooms with absolutely stunning reception rooms and grounds. Not only that but it also welcomes up to three dogs.
Lorton is a peaceful village in a wonderful corner of the Lake District National Park. It could scarcely be better placed to enjoy everything that the area has to offer. Winder Hall lies just four miles from Crummock and Loweswater, two of the most picturesque lakes in the area. It is also four miles from Wordsworth’s birthplace, the charming Georgian town of Cockermouth and eight miles from Cumbria’s adventure capital, Keswick. The village itself is a tranquil gem with an excellent local pub just 100m away from the driveway, a much treasured village shop and tons of walks and cycle rides from the doorstep. Whinlatter Forest Park is just up the road with a popular café, a wealth of mountain bike tracks, a Gruffalo trail and a Go Ape high ropes course. You never know, you could find yourself whooping along a zip wire high up in the forest canopy just ten minutes from your door. It really is an ideal area for a large group with different interests.
The house itself is a magical world of nooks, crannies and romantic window seats which children (including big kids) will be entranced by. Older members of your party might be more delighted by the large fireplaces, historical details, antique furnishings and beautiful baby grand piano. The lounge also boasts its own bar for you to play at being a landlord during your stay.
So, whether you’d like to style yourself as Lord or Lady of the manor and revel in its rich history and surrounding beauty or whether you’d just like the space to gather your favourite people together in a warm, welcoming house then Winder Hall is a perfect place to go.
