  • "This was our third visit to Applethwaite Hall but first at Muirhead."

    It did not disappoint. We had a wonderful stay, we love the location and the apartment was spacious and beautiful. We could have stayed longer. It had everything we needed for a fabulous week in the Lakes. We will definitely be back.

  • "This is a super property, extremely comfortable and in a fabulous setting."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay although the snowy weather did hamper us somewhat. However, we were snug and cosy and the scenery was fabulous. We would recommend this property.

  • "The apartment is wonderful."

    All six of us and the dog thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the equipment was excellent and the drying cupboard was a great facility. We felt that a plastic washing up bowl and plate drainer would have been useful, but this was a minor issue. The beds were very comfortable and linen of great quality. Although the weather was not so great for us , we enjoyed having a small garden to use. The situation was great for reaching the surrounding areas. Thank you.

  • "This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Muirhead and they really have thought of everything in terms of facilities."

    Just a slight negative is there are a few areas that need updating like the grouting in the en-suite. A barbecue outside would be amazing .All in all a great break.

  • "The accommodation was fab in every way."

    A couple of things would be to have a tv in every bedroom as often we would have like to watch in bed in the evenings . Also an umberella from the sun would be good as the back garden did get really warm .

The property

Stylish apartment in Applethwaite Hall built at the height of the Arts and Crafts movement close to Windermere in the Lake District and has stunning original features with a firepace and Victoria stone windows.

Named after the architect Thomas Muirhead who in addition to designing Applethwaite Hall was also responsible for the cricket Pavilions at Manchester Old Trafford and The Oval.

On the lower ground floor Muirhead is approached through the communal entrance to the hall and offers luxurious accommodation in a beautiful setting.

The sitting room has been elegantly decorated and has original stone pillars, panelling together with a Smart TV.

The kitchen/diner is superbly equipped with large picture windows over looking the grounds.

There is a spacious master bedroom with super-king sized bed and ensuite shower room.

There are a further 2 bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside there is a covered private terrace and shared use of the extensive grounds including immaculate lawns with views over to the Langdales.

Applethwaite is an enviable location; easily reached by car or by train and perfectly placed to explore Windermere village, Bowness, Lake Windermere and all the Lake District has to offer. This owner does not accept children under 11, please ensure you take note of this upon booking. Windermere is a lovely place to make yourself at home with an abundance of cafés, restaurants and traditional Lake District pubs to choose from and plenty of shops for stocking up the kitchen.

A number of superb walks begin nearby, including the easy ascent of Orrest Head which promises spectacular views to Lake Windermere from the top.

There are also many National Trust and other historic properties and gardens to enjoy near at hand including the 400 year old farmhouse at Townend, Holehird Gardens (the home of the Lakeland Horticultural Society) and the beautifully restored Arts and Crafts house, Blackwell For touring by car, you'll find Windermere a great place to start.

A famously scenic stretch of the A591 leads to Ambleside, Rydal Water and historic Grasmere.

Branch off into the Troutbeck Valley and take one of the most breathtaking scenic drives in the Lake District - over Kirkstone Pass to Ullswater with a stop at the acclaimed Queen's Head for lunch.

This superb property makes a delightful base for a Lake District holiday at any time of the year.

Please note Unfortunately Muirhead isn't suitable for children under 10. Please ensure this is noted before making your booking, thank you
