    “Unfortunately we had no hot water due to issue's with the boiler, which the estates maintenance team managered to partly rectify the next day.”

    It ment that the day I proposed to my girlfriend we had to have cold showers after we returned from a hike in the mountains and before we headed out for a celebratory dinner in the evening. Apart from that everything was fine.

The property

Hawkshead 5.3 miles.

This wonderful detached cottage on the idyllic Graythwaite Estate occupies an exceptional setting right on the shores of Lake Windermere and the location is simply unrivalled.

The estate itself covers 5000 acres of grounds, including 12 acres of garden open from April to September.

There are also wonderful facilities in the central courtyard, around 20 minutes' walk away, which include an indoor swimming pool, children's play area, table tennis room and fitness suite.

But the real magic comes from its setting perched right on the shores of Lake Windermere itself, with a private jetty leading out over the waters.

Summer afternoons can be spent at the picnic table with a refreshing jug of Pimms and views of the glistening lake.

Use cooler days for exploring the woodland and spotting wildlife.

If you choose to head out for the day, then why not book a canoeing, climbing or bushcraft adventure through the estate?

The on-site team would even be delighted to offer tips on local walks in the area and discounts can be indulged at the Lakeland Hotel, the Go Ape!

centre and at Grizedale Forest.

Within easy reach is the village of Hawkhead, with pubs, tea rooms and gift shops, whilst all the delights of Windermere, Grasmere and Ambleside await!

Discover The World of Beatrix Potter, climb Scaffel Pike and enjoy a boat cruise on the blue waters from Bowness Bay.

The area is packed with memories just waiting to be made, and to top it off, at the end of each day you can return to this very special lakeside setting.

About the location

HAWKSHEAD

Ambleside 4 miles; Kendal 24 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
