    “Ideal place for a largish family ...”

    Ideal place for a largish family gathering. All mod cons and fittings working well, in a wonderfully retro setting. William Morris Wallpaper, good fires and plenty of space. Very helpful hosts.

    Ideal place for a largish family gathering. All mod cons and fittings working well, in a wonderfully retro setting. William Morris Wallpaper, good fires and plenty of space. Very helpful hosts. The only drawback was the considerable distance from kitchen to the rest of the house - and perhaps the fact that it is actually rather dark inside and surrounded by trees. Nonetheless, it made a wonderful location for an excellent week and in a gorgeous part of the country.

The property

Daweswood is a truly remarkable Arts and Crafts house situated in the countryside around the small village of Patterdale.

This stunning period property is located on the edge of Ullswater within walking distance of amenities and perfect for a luxury break in the Lake District.

Upon entry, the grandeur of this property is immediately apparent, with its oak panels harking back to the early twentieth century.

Leading off the entrance hall is a sizeable sitting room, with the wood fire surround a particularly striking feature.

The separate dining room has a substantial seating area at one end and a cosy study feel at the other, with more oak panelling and comfy furniture around the wood burning stove.

The sizeable kitchen has a range cooker and Belfast sink, befitting the country manor style of the property.

The majesty of Daweswood continues upstairs, with five glorious bedrooms – four doubles and one twin.

Two bathrooms are situated upstairs to facilitate the capacity, with an additional downstairs cloakroom.

Daweswood is accessed by a rolling driveway in keeping with the manor house feel.

The gardens span three acres of woodland and bushes, with garden furniture available across a number of paved outdoor areas.

The village of Patterdale is a five-minute walk from the property and here you can gather all you need for your luxury stay or indulge in a meal in the local taverns.

If you can tear yourself away from this remarkable property, Ullswater lies just minutes away and from here you can explore the Lake District in a leisurely fashion or indulge in the more energetic water and hiking pursuits on offer in the district.

Perfect for a large group or two families, Daweswood is an ideal home for a unique holiday experience in the heart of the Lake District.

About the location


Windermere 3 miles; Ambleside 4 miles.

The small Lakeland village of Troutbeck can be found between its more famous neighbours Windermere and Ambleside, close by the Kirkstone Pass. A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of destinations such as Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Troutbeck is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.
