About the property

E8758

These traditional stone properties in a tranquil setting are furnished to a high standard providing a comfortable and excellent base from which to explore the Lake District National Park. The extensive shared garden attracts deer, rabbits and birds and adjoins fields of sheep. Situated close to Grizedale Forest – home to ‘Go Ape’, the apartments are surrounded by numerous walking and mountain bike tracks. Cycle hire is available at Lakeside. While walkers will be keen to explore Wainwright’s Fells, there is also an abundance of historic houses and gardens to visit, including Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top Farm. A number of local museums and The South Lakes Animal Park offer excellent family days out. There are excellent amenities for watersports and fishing close at hand and the Cumbrian Coast is only 30 minutes drive away. For eating and drinking, the Lakeside Hotel and Knoll Hotel are within a few minutes walk. Spa facilities are also available at the Lakeside Hotel.

About Helen Vipan

Hi, I'm Helen, I and my husband Mark live and work in Leeds, together with our 4 sons.

Helen Vipan purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Helen Vipan chose England

I grew up in South Lakeland, and still have family living locally. The Lake District is a fantastic place for children and we wanted our sons to enjoy all the activities and places I enjoyed as a child. It's great to be able to escape the city and enjoy the peace and stunning beauty of the lakes and fells. I love relaxing in the garden with only the sound of sheep and birdsong, and occasional whistle from the steam train. The boys love the garden which is big enough for wide games and has a 'rough' area for campfire meals; whilst Mark enjoys sailing and walking.

What makes this apartment unique

We have private access to a shore at Lakeside - a great place for paddling or launching canoes (there's no jetty).

And there's so much to see and do in the area - our favourites would include walking up to High Dam from the house; cycling in Grizedale Forest; the Motor Museum at Backbarrow, and the South Lakes Wild Animal Park at Dalton-in-Furness.

There are some great places to eat in Cumbria. We love L'Enclume in Cartmel for special occasions. The Lakeside Hotel Restaurant and Spa are both excellent. I particularly enjoy a manicure followed by relaxing on the terrace overlooking the lake with a coffee and the paper while my nails dry!

There are lots of historic houses to visit; and plenty of interesting little shops to potter around in nearby Hawkshead and Bowness.

Perfect holiday property and location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an absolutely wonderful holiday in this very well-kept house in a beautiful area of the Lakes District. Everything was exactly as described in the property description. The garden was huge, perfect for adult and children alike to play in and relax. There were stunning views from the lounge and the double bedroom.

I would definitely recommend this house to friends and we would love to come back ourselves another time.

The owner was very helpful and accommodating and provided us with detailed information on places to go and see with young children in the area.

Thank you!
