The property

Tarn House is part of a splendid period property and sits above the picturesque village of Skelwith in the Langdale Valley.

This is a genuine walkers' paradise; benefiting from ever-changing views of the spectacular valley and circumscribed by the Lake District's most famous fells.

Inside Tarn House you'll find a true taste of traditional Lakeland grandeur with high ceilings, polished floorboards, Victorian tiling and Inglenook fireplace blend beautifully with rich materials and opulent furnishings.

This is a place to spend some quality time with family or friends, at any time throughout the year, whether relaxing or embarking on adventures.

Visitors have described the interior design as wonderful and creative, the setting as marvelous and the location as amazing.

Chester's Cafe and the Skelwith Bridge Hotel's Talbot Bar are just a short walk away.

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
