  • "What a fabulous property!"

    Well equipped and tastefully decorated with relaxing views through the amazing lounge window. Ideally situated for exploring the Lakes and great to have Windermere within walking distance. Only improvement we would suggest is to the instructions on finding the property which are difficult to follow when arriving after dark; the property is 2 miles after Ings village, not just over 1 mile, and there are lots of dips and climbs!

    Thank you for your very positive feedback for the Mulberry at Applethwaite Hall and we will re-visit our arrival instructions to try to make it easier for guests to find us in the dark. Property Owner

    This was our tenth stay in this property and, despite the efforts of the British weather, was just as good as the first.

    Great views, even when raining! Great facilities. Particularly liked the flat's drying room, entrance lobby, kitchen layout and dog guard that was provided. Very thoughtful. Everything worked well. We had a lovely week in beautiful surroundings... Our dog (border terrier) loved it too.

    Thank you for your very kind feedback. We have a border terrier too and she also loves to stay and walk in the Lakes! We hope to be able to welcome you again sometime. Property Owner

    Perfect location for exploring the lakes, the grounds and surrounding areas are beautiful. Mulberry is like a home from home, comfortable and clean with everything you need. We were particularly impressed with how comfortable the beds were. Can’t recommend enough. Thank you Mulberry.

    The appartment was, again, prepared to the usual high standard and presented in perfect order, as always. The Mulberry is our 'go to' place in The Lakes and is the appartment that all others are compared with and despite the best efforts of the British weather we had another great stay. We will be back again VERY soon!

    There was no coffee, tea or sugar either. Not deal breaker items but we own holidays let’s and so I guess we look for these things. Great apartment though - contact us if you ever consider selling

  • "Mulberry was a lovely apartment, well appointed overall in a great location for exploring the Lakes and getting provisions for our stay in Windermere, especially from Booths, the excellent local supermarket."

    The only reason we’ve reduced the feedback score was due to the quality of the mattresses in both beds. They were very lumpy and you feel the contents of them when sleeping. Also the mattress protectors were grey and soiled (marked). Other than this we had a lovely stay at Mulberry, Applethwaite Hall and would consider rebooking in the future.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry that the beds were not to your liking. They are John Lewis premium quality, as we wanted them to be comfortable for our guests and also for ourselves, on our frequent visits to the apartment. I am surprised that the mattress protectors were unsatisfactory, as they have been laundered within the last month, but we have asked the housekeeper to visit in order to inspect and address any issues. Kind Regards, The Owners. Property Owner

    Daughters didn’t sleep great either. Lovely apartment but because of the beds won’t be staying again.

    Hello there. Thank you for your feedback which we always welcome. This was a surprise to us as you are the first guest since we started letting the Mulberry who has commented that the beds are too soft. Beds are a very subjective and important issue, because of which we took great care over the selection of the mattresses, eventually picking them from the John Lewis premium range with a medium firmness. However, I am sorry that in this case they did not prove to your liking. Property Owner

    The Appartment is just superb, well equiped and perfectly presented as always. It is so nice to go to a holiday rental, where you know where everything is, and be unpacked and relaxed with 15 miutes even after a 5 hour drive. So quiet, restful, but close enough to Windermere so that you don't need to use the car every day. Brilliant appartment and many thanks to the owners for allowing us to share their wonderful holiday home. Just looking at booking the next trip!

    Everything you could want is there - a crate and mat for your dog, drier for your clothes and a really well equipped kitchen (i recon you could cook Sunday dinner or bake a cake if you felt inclined, personally i would head to Booths supermarket and cheat and buy some of their delicious produce instead!). Sofa and beds are comfy, Netflix is on the TV and the view from the window is beautiful. Apartment was bigger than we expected and felt really spacious. Setting is great to walk from and it isn’t far into Windermere, you can walk there via Orest head if you want to make it a scenic walk. We have booked again for a few months time!

The property

Part of the prestigious Applethwaite Hall development, The Mulberry is a contemporary, luxurious retreat within striking distance of the Lakeland town of Windermere and her busier neighbour, Bowness yet far enough away to appreciate a peaceful, countryside location.

One of the exclusive apartments created within a stunning former Arts and Crafts country house, this spacious first floor apartment offers superb views across the grounds to the Langdale Pikes and beyond, in the very heart of the Lakes.

The owners are life-long lovers of the Lake District who regularly use the apartment and have created a stylish and comfortable space complimented by artwork and crafts by local artists.

Just a mile from the centre of Windermere, The Mulberry at Applethwaite Hall is not only well placed for enjoying a wealth of outdoor activities for all ages and abilities but provides the opportunity to sample the eclectic mix of boutiques, restaurant, coffee shops and galleries that the town offers. Accommodation in detail Sharing the rather grand entrance to the main building, The Mulberry at Applethwaite Hall can be found on the first floor and is all on one level and South West facing.

An inner hallway offers useful hanging space for walking gear and leads into the main entrance hall which opens into the stunning open plan living space complete with original stone mullioned windows providing a wonderful outlook over the mature grounds and to the fells in the distance.

This super social space, beautifully presented in neutral shades with accent colour, offers sumptuous corner seating, large wall mounted Smart TV with DVD player and Ruark digital radio and blue tooth connected speaker.

The room blends effortlessly through to the adjacent kitchen and dining area with all the facilities you'd expect from such a high quality conversion; Neff appliances of oven, hob, microwave fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/drier and yet more of those stunning, original window openings!

A generously proportioned walnut dining table is ideally positioned for social dining and fell views. Both bedrooms have been designed and styled with the emphasis on comfort and quality incorporating oak furniture, high quality bedding, natural wool fabrics and accessories, perfectly chosen original artwork and built in wardrobes.

Bedroom 1, a kingsize, benefits from the adjacent Villeroy and Boch house bathroom with shower over the bath, handbasin and wc.

Bedroom 2 is a spacious superking made up as a double (can be made up as a twin - please request at time of booking) with access to the en-suite Villeroy and Boch shower room with cubicle, handbasin and wc.

The owners are keen walkers, and have made maps and walking guides available for guest use.

For those occasional damp days, a Dry-Soon Airer has been thoughtfully provided for walking gear. There is a private, numbered car parking space for one car within the level parking area and further visitor's spaces are available.

For cyclists there is a secure, covered bike store.

Guests at The Mulberry at Applethwaite Hall are free to roam the Hall's beautiful lawns and woodland, home to a host of wildlife including a family of deer, squirrels and a variety of native birds.

Whether you're an experienced or novice walker, sailor or cyclist, there are plenty of outdoor opportunities right on the doorstep.

Orrest Head and Post Knott are within 20 minutes walk offering an amazing panoramic view across England’s largest Lake Windermere to Coniston, Bow Fell, Crinkle Crags and the Langdale Pikes.

Sailing, paddleboarding, kayaking and canoeing are just some of the watersports available on Windermere and nearby Grizedale Forest offers trails for cyclists and mountain bikers of all abilities.

Location Applethwaite Hall is in an enviable location; easily reached by car (just 20 minutes from J36 of the M6) or by train and perfectly placed to explore Windermere village, Bowness, Lake Windermere and all the Lake District has to offer.

Windermere has an abundance of cafés, restaurants and traditional Lake District pubs to choose from with plenty of shops, including Booth’s supermarket, for stocking up the kitchen.

Several superb walks begin nearby, including the easy ascent of Orrest Head which promises a spectacular panorama from the top.

There are many National Trust and other historic properties and gardens near at hand including the 400 year old Townend Farmhouse, Holehird Gardens, Blackwell Arts and Crafts house and Allan Bank where the iconic red squirrels reliably put in an appearance!

Windermere is a perfect base for exploring the entirety of the Lake District.

The 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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
