  • "It was perfect for our family get together."

    The property was beautiful and so tastefully decorated. We had two young children with us who didn't want to go out and happy playing in the snug and games room. I would definitely recommend

  • "A stunning home over Windermere with beautiful views of the lake."

    A warm welcoming home with great amenities which was perfect for a February holiday. The modern interior with 4 gorgeous bedrooms made us settle in very quickly. The cosey living room and amazing extension was simply perfect. Already booked out next stay.

The property

Windermere 5.4 miles.

Enjoying an elevated, hillside position, on the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, lies this detached, Lakeland home, Pheasants Folly.

Affording glorious views over Lake Windermere, Pheasants Folly is an exceptional place to call home whilst adventuring in the Lakelands.

After a day of wandering the streets of Windermere, kick off your shoes in the entrance porch and discover the lounge, finished with stylish wallpaper and art along with plush seating, a woodburning stove and a Smart TV with soundbar for entertainment.

Carry the conversation over to the kitchen, dominated by the range cooker with electric double oven and 5-ring hob, use this mighty appliance to rustle up a feast for all, before serving it in the light and airy dining room, complete with a panoramic lake view.

Also in this space rests an air hockey/pool table, providing hours of entertainment on rainy days.

Locate the utility room for your laundry facilities, housing a washing machine and tumble dryer, whilst the snug provides a quiet spot to read.

Whisk away upstairs and choose from four wonderful bedrooms; there is a super-king-size bed with en-suite shower, a super-king-size with TV, a king-size with en-suite shower and a further king-size, all with stunning views of the lake.

Awaken from a leisurely slumber with a refresh in the bathroom.

During the summer months, take advantage of the large, sloping garden, with a patio space housing outdoor furniture that is perfect for alfresco dining. Hop in the car and head into Windermere, home to a plethora of amenities; give the chef a break by ordering a local takeaway, or venture into the town to dine at one of the many restaurants, perhaps at Francine’s for some fresh seafood or the Gilpin Spice for some continental Asian dishes.

Test your golf swing at Windermere Golf club ahead of spending the afternoon at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction where modern displays are dedicated to the famed children’s author; travel to Ambleside where her former home, National Trust owned Hill Top, can be discovered.

Hop aboard a traditional steamer and view the setting from a different perspective, before getting off at Ambleside and ascending to the summit of Claife Heights, rewarded with far-reaching vistas.

Whisk away the whole family for a special break at Pheasants Folly.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
