The property

Elevated above the tranquil western shores of Lake Windermere in a rural setting, yet close enough to enjoy the amenities of Hawkshead and Ambleside. Hawkrigg Farm is a luxurious detached country house with space for ten guests.

The residence has been refurbished to the highest possible standard and offers incredible lake views from almost every room. Enter the property through the back door, where outdoor gear can be left in a convenient boot room.

Step into the first of two living rooms to relax in front of a cosy fire, the second sitting room features sumptuous furnishings and a second Smart TV.

A modern kitchen / diner provides the perfect space to prepare celebratory meals, which guests can enjoy around a large family dining table.

Lazy mornings can be enjoyed in this social space with a Nespresso coffee machine and breakfast bar, if the sun is shining step through French doors and out in the furnished garden.

A convenient utility room provides all the appliances you need for a self-catering holiday.

Head up to the first floor where five luxurious bedrooms offer spectacular views across England’s largest lake.

Four of the bedrooms feature king size beds whilst the fifth is presented as a twin.

Three of the king size bedrooms are complemented with en-suite shower rooms and the first floor is completed with a spacious family bathroom. Outside parking is provided for five cars making this property a brilliant get-away for large families and groups of friends.

To the front of the residence a pretty lawned garden leads to another highlight of the property – a large hot tub set under a gazebo. Located in a truly rural location there are plenty of walking routes surrounding the residence and the peaceful hamlets of Near Sawrey and Cunsey are close by.

Jump onto the car ferry across Lake Windermere to explore the bustling village of Bowness with its shops, restaurants and attractions and take the short drive to Hawkshead – one of the most charming villages in the Lake District.

Families will enjoy a day trip to Lakeside, where a steam train awaits for a magical ride through Lakeland countryside and an aquarium provides great rainy day entertainment. Standing pride of place above beautiful Lake Windermere, Hawkrigg Farm is a superb country house for large families and groups of friends looking to celebrate a special occasion. Hawkrigg Farm does not welcome stag or hen parties.

Please note that this property only allows a maximum of 10 people, including infants. Hawkrigg Farm does not welcome stag/hen parties
