The property

A unique fusion of classic mountain retreat and contemporary chalet, Post Knott Lodge is perfect for those looking for the ultimate luxury stay.

The private elevated setting provides panoramic views over Lake Windermere while only a short stroll into the bustling streets of Bowness on Windermere.

Extensively transformed in 2020 by award winning developers Pin & Pin, Post Knott Lodge is arguably one of the finest homes in the Lake District national park.

Spread over 6000 ft2 the bespoke interior details have been created by local craftsmen to give a warm and cozy ambiance.

The living space is the heart and soul of the home where guests can relax, unwind and enjoy their stay together.

A traditional wood burning stove and subtle designer lighting encourage time spent lingering over mugs of tea while you watch the weather shift outside.Through the foldable wall of wooden doors the kitchen with its breakfast bar and abundance of appliances is the ideal place for socialising after the days adventures.

Joining the space is a sumptuous dining area affording awe-inspiring views of the Lake District, a fantastic spot to entertain your nearest and dearest as you indulge in a well-prepared meal and exchange your most memorable moments from the holiday so far.

Discover the exceptional cinema room, where a dark and cosy atmosphere has been created from reclaimed barn timbers, oversized loungers and beanbags, perfect for those quiet nights in.

With subtle mood lighting and high tech surround sound guests can immerse themselves into their chosen film.

The outside terrace stretches the whole of the Lodge, showcasing a lavish lounge area for groups to gather and admire the sunset with a drink in hand.

The rustic indoor-outdoor BBQ kitchen provides a relaxing hang out for entertaining outdoors and late on into the evening.

With a log burner, sound system and television; it’s perfect for watching those all-important sports matches or an intimate film wrapped up in fur blankets.

As impressive as this is the real pièce de résistance is the incredible private gym and spa built into the hillside, just below the main terrace, giving it a sense of sanctuary from the rest of the house.

The natural slate walls and reclaimed pine ceiling create a rich opulent space for relaxation or an energetic workout.

Whether listening to your choice of music in the sauna or watching an action film while on the cross trainer this indulgent space flaunts everything a guest could wish for.

The house manager can organise massages, spa treatments, personal training and class exercises for guests on request, we can cater for a more bespoke experience or invigorating session.

At the end of the day, 6 lavish bedrooms, flaunt the finest of linens, pocket sprung mattresses and textured bed heads to ensure the utmost luxury.

Spread across 3 floors all bedrooms have the option to be configured as a super king or twin beds depending on preference.

Starting on the top floor the large en-suite penthouse benefits from the best views from its own Juliet balcony.

Four further lavish bedrooms, 2 en-suite and 3 with balconies can be found on the middle floor along with the light filled family bathroom.

On the ground floor the private en-suite room is ideal for those who want to avoid the stairs and save energy for the next days escapade.

When you can just about manage to tear yourself away from this picturesque property, be sure to embark on a scenic stroll to the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere and fill your days with relaxing boat rides on the lake or on fun-filled tours of attractions such as The World of Beatrix Potter and Windermere Jetty Museum. Admire the views from Claife Viewing Station, or continue along the banks of the lake towards the imposing fortress of Wray Castle, also owned by the National Trust.

After exploring the area in the day try one of the top class restaurants the area has to offer followed by one of the many rustic pubs or quirky bars.

If that all sounds like too much effort the house manager would be delighted to organise a private chef to entertain you in the lodge with some culinary delights.

Located at the start of the Dales way walk, there’s no excuse not to embrace the great out doors here, especially as some of the lakes best loved walks are on the doorstep.

Walkers of all ages and abilities will be spoilt for choice with the encompassing fells of Walna Scar, Black Fell Peak and Wansfell Pike offering ample opportunity for an exhilarating hike through the countryside.

For those looking for a more relaxed stroll there are plenty of opportunities to amble through peaceful hamlets and refuel in one of the excellent local pubs en route, before regrouping in your irresistibly comfortable home-from-home.

A pleasant drive away from the Water Park Lakeland Adventure Centre and Treetop Lake District have proven a hit with those travelling with little ones.

Spend the day in the neighbouring town of Ambleside and uncover Stock Ghyll Force and the historical remains of Ambleside Roman Fort, or stop off in the town of Kendal to see what remains of Kendal Castle and tour the Quaker Tapestry and Lakeland Museums. Live unforgettable moments with those closest to you, on a holiday like never before at Post Knott Lodge.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.

    “Wow”

    What can I say apart from wow . ...

    What can I say apart from wow . It really was amazing inside and out . Perfect location , so easy to get about . Only thing is there is a steep hill to walk up but worth it once you get there , the views are incredible. The house manager was lovely , very welcoming and couldn’t do enough to make us feel welcome . The welcome hamper itself was incredible . The house itself was perfect with every amenity possible . We booked Jamie the private chef on our first evening and wow what a treat that was . Food and service was absolutely amazing . Could not fault it and would definitely recommend. If I had one thing that I would add it would be a hot tub , but that by no means spoils your stay . Already looking forward to our next stay . Thanks again for an amazing memorable stay .
