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 Lakeside

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 fire pit 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 taking the 10 minute ferry across Windermere to Fell Foot Park beyond.

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.

Lovely property in fantastic setting - ideal for a family break!

  • 5 of 5

We booked for a long weekend as were attending a wedding in the local area. The property was ideal for our requirements with plenty of space for the 6 of us that spanned 3 generations. The garden is fantastic for adults and children alike, and we were disappointed we weren't staying for longer!

Enjoyable Stay

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 4 adults a 3 year old and 18month old enjoying an unusually wet week in the lakes in June so we couldn't make the most of the garden. When we did on the last day we got a real sense of what a beautiful place it is.

Our host Helen, was great at providing any answers to questions during our stay. Beds were comfortable and the master bedroom very spacious.

Everything was just as Helen described.

The lake access is a short walk down the road rather than via the field at the bottom of the garden and a little over grown when you get there but not too much of an inconvenience for those wanting a morning dip before breakfast.

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!

Manchester Airport is the nearest airport.

Ulverston is the nearest train station - approximately 30 minutes drive.

Once at the property, a car is recommended but not necessary as many towns and places of interest can be reached by the Ferry and Steam Railway - check timetables for availability.
