    “Stayed for a week to celebrate Dads/Granddads 70th Birthday, with a selection of family and friends.”

    Great base, good standard, well equipped cottages. lovely location, lots of things to do & places to go. if you quiet at night you can hear owls hooting. Overall the best family holiday for a while. plenty of dog friendly places. We would return again.

The property

The contemporary and the rustic blend seamlessly in this tastefully converted Lakeland barn.

Abbots Reading Mews 2 is the ideal country retreat for a couple, and enjoys delightful wooded gardens along with a special location between Lake Windermere and Coniston Water in lovely South Lakes countryside.

Forget those everyday cares in your own Lakeland hideaway! Step into an older world at Abbots Reading, where life seems that little bit slower and simpler!

Nature is all around you, and deer and other wild animals are regular visitors.

The sympathetically converted barn is part of a pretty courtyard, with natural woodlands and ponds beyond, and is a lovely place to spend your Lakelovers holiday.

Despite the sleepy setting there is plenty to do here.

Romantic strolls amongst the woods and green rolling landscapes all around you and days out on the steamers that cruise Lake Windermere from Lakeside pier will make your break special.

We suggest, too, a visit to the Swan Hotel beside the river at Newby Bridge for some great food and relaxation in the excellent spa facilities, and a romantic journey into the Levens Valley on the vintage steam trains that run on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway.

Back home, the romantic bedroom is both stylish and comfortable, and convenient, too, with its en-suite bath and power shower room.

You will certainly enjoy those lazy mornings here spent watching television on the wall-mounted flatscreen.

The vaulted, oak-beamed open-plan living/dining/kitchen space is charming and characterful, with all you need to pamper yourselves during your time away!

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 miles.

Grizedale is a quiet hamlet that lies just 8-miles outside of the bustle of Ambleside. It is the forest cycling trails, treetop adventures and famous artist sculptures of Grizedale Forest that gives the area its greatest prominence. Grizedale also benefits from being flanked on either side by two of the Lake District’s most magnificent bodies of water, Windermere and Coniston Water. Both lakes offer one of the most extraordinary ways to experience the Lake District – from on the water, either on a traditional steam cruise, adventurous Stand-Up Paddle Board (SUP) or on a private yacht, you’ll feel a million miles away from anywhere.
Grizedale is packed with things to do and see yet still benefits from being quiet as it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. In Grizedale, you’ll find stunning scenery and views that stretch right across the Lake District’s famous mountain ranges, lots of outdoor activities as well as top-notch eateries and great local pubs.
Forestry England maintain the magnificent Grizedale Forest, with miles of paths to explore that weave at different gradients in and around the peak of Carron Crag. Grizedale offers a enjoy a relaxing break in one of England’s top mountain forests.
