  • "Overall it was a great stay, 2nd time staying here int the last few years."

    One thing we did feel a bit let down with was the Christmas decorations. For a house of that size we was expecting a lot more than the smallish sized Christmas tree we got. Even a quarter of the lights didn’t work meaning the bottom of the tree wasn’t lit up. With some children in the group we had to make a trip out to get some more decs especially table decorations. So maybe for future stays in December it maybe nice to have extra lights or even outdoor tree on the drive. Garlands on the staircase? another tree in the lounge with a bigger tree in the kitchen and some table decorations. Just a thought as this is the only area we felt let down on. The other part that you need to know is that the bedroom above the lounge to the left of the stairs that lead to the top floor, there was a smell of drains when the shower was in use. So maybe it may need looking at to find the source on that. Everything else was great and an excellent stay. Thanks Paul

    This house was truly beautiful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return Only slightly disappointed in the hot tub as it was quite small and not very high spec compared to the house itself which was amazing

The property

From its elevated position, just outside Bowness, Cleabarrow Cottage is an imposing, detached residence with far reaching views across the meadows and woods to the skyline of the south Lakeland fells.

This contemporary and luxurious retreat gives guests sumptuous and private surroundings.

Spread over three floors, this stylish home has plenty of space for a large gathering.

The heart of the home is the spacious open plan sitting, dining and kitchen area with floor to ceiling picture windows and bi-fold doors that open to the patio, allow the light to flood in.

Here you can bring the outside-in and enjoy the tranquil countryside, which is a haven for wildlife, including a herd of Roe deer that can be often seen grazing nearby.

The beautifully presented space includes two sitting areas, so you can spread out and do different things - perhaps enjoy the views and chat, and the other to relax in front of the TV.

The large dining table is a wonderful sociable space.

The contemporary, hi-spec kitchen is thoroughly well equipped and a joy to use.

Across the hallway is the formal sitting room with comfortable sofas, armchairs, large screen TV and patio doors to the garden.

To the side is a cosy snug and reading area which is a little haven in which to relax with a good book or the weekend papers.

Head outside and enjoy the terraced, lawned garden, and wrap around large patio terrace, with outdoor furniture and a bubbling hot tub from which to enjoy the tranquil views.

Cleabarrow Cottage offers a choice of six bedrooms, each beautifully presented and all with en-suite facilities, TVs and bathrobes.

All the bedrooms can be presented as with either a super king-size bed or twin beds (please specify your choice when booking).

The first of the six bedrooms is on the ground floor and complemented by a superb en-suite shower room with walk in shower.

On the first floor, choose from three welcoming bedrooms; the first with a large corner window benefiting from the beautiful views and including an en-suite shower room, the second with a balcony and en-suite bathroom with feature bath and the third with superb views and luxurious en-suite with feature bath.
