  • “We had a fantastic week at Grove House.”

    The property (including the annex) and gardens exceeded expectations. We were lucky with the weather so spent a lot of time outside in the garden, exploring the barn and relaxing in the hot tub. The added touches including the welcome gift and family games were greatly appreciated. We also made the most of the surrounding areas visiting Grange-over-sands, Cartmel and Bowness and even managed a lovely meal at the local pub, kayaking and tree climbing. Loved every minute and will definitely be ...

The property

Tucked away in the quiet village of Witherslack, at the end of an unadopted lane, is this charming and imposing holiday home.

Grove House is a tranquil and homely setting for your next group adventure to the Lake District.

A truly special location, offering incredible views, absolute peace and quiet and what feels like your very own private slice of the Lake District.The rental gives you exclusive access to the whole 14 acres, main house and annex, along with neighbouring barn.

All the buildings you see in the pictures are all included in your rental.

This is a true retreat, a place where you can unwind, with just your closest friends, and likely not see another individual the whole time you’re at The Grove. Travel along the impressive driveway towards the striking holiday home, sitting in a prominent position overlooking the expanse of greenery that encompasses the property, parking up alongside the idle barn, before heading inside. Grove House consists of a main house, as well as a charming annexe, accessed via an external doorway, offering the perfect self-contained accommodation for a small family. Stepping into the main house, you're welcomed into the kitchen/living area, beautifully decorated with a farmhouse-style interior, boasting a rustic AGA and cosy seating area alongside a woodburning stove, housing the essential amenities, including a washing machine and dishwasher, in the adjoining utility room, along with downstairs WC. Continuing through the property, gather your guests around the large twelve seater dining table, to serve up a hearty meal, where you can enjoy some long overdue quality time together, planning your next adventure over a bottle of wine in front of a newly installed log burning stove, nestled in the original, large open stone fireplace.

Then settle down for the evening to enjoy a movie night in the large sitting room, enveloping the space with the warmth from another newly installed log burning stove in the colder months, or escape with your loved one for an intimate moment together in the cosy snug and enjoy a fire and a glass of wine.

You are really spoiled for choice when choosing where to relax. Stepping outside, continue the celebrations with a seat on the patio, toasting with a glass of fizz and a remarkable backdrop of beautifully maintained gardens and far-reaching views of unspoilt countryside. As the day draws to a close, head upstairs to prepare for bed, indulging in a leisurely soak in the bath, or a rejuvenating rinse in the shower room, offering Jack-and-Jill access to one of the king-size bedrooms. When sleep calls, rest your head in one of the four beautifully-appointed bedrooms, choosing between the three king-size rooms, two of which benefit from their own en-suite shower room, newly installed and finished to an incredibly high standard, and the twin room, offering flexible sleeping arrangements for varying party make ups.

All bedrooms have gone through an extension renovation and are kitted out to the highest possible standard. You'll find two additional bedrooms in the annexe, both benefiting from en-suites, as well as an open-plan living space, featuring a fully-fitted kitchen, intimate dining area and cosy seating area, and an additional sitting area, hidden away on the first floor, providing a solace from the excitement of the main house. The village of Witherslack boasts a handy convenience store where you can pick up any forgotten essentials, along with a traditional country pub, The Derby Arms, serving fresh locally sourced produce and regularly hosting live music events.

Furthermore, there are a large number of beautiful walks in the area, for those not wanting to tackle to highest mountains, or those happy to avoid the crowds.

Likewise Witherslack offers some protected AONB at Foulshaw Moss, and some unique bird watching with the nesting Ospreys nearby.Added to that the 2500 acres horse-riding retreat which is one of the largest in the country and some incredible mountain biking, means Witherslack has an awful lot to offer for such a small village.

The nearby costal town of Grange-over-Sands offers a wider selection of shopping opportunities and eateries to choose from, along with a delightful promenade, where you can take a leisurely stroll alongside Morecambe Bay, soaking in the panoramic views across the water, as well as an 18-hole golf course to test your swing.

Travel further afield to the settlement of Lakeside, nestled at the southern end of Lake Windermere, to join the Windermere Lake Cruise, voyaging the largest natural lake in England to the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, home to The World of Beatrix Potter and the Michelin Star award-winning restaurant, HRiSHi. Lace up your walking boots and explore the varying landscape of Whitbarrow National Nature Reserve, climbing through woodland and limestone to the summit, Lord's Seat, providing far-reaching views across Morecambe Bay and The Howgill Fells. For your next group celebration to The Lake District, choose a stay at Grove House.

About the location

WITHERSLACK

Cartmel 6 miles, Grange Over Sands 9 miles, Windermere 16 miles.

The small village of Witherslack lies tucked beneath Whitbarrow Scar, in a lovely area running south east from the shores of Lake Windermere, encompassing fell, woodland, river and valley bottom. The village consists of a huddle of fine, stone built traditional houses, cottages and barn conversions surrounded by unspoilt countryside, with varied flora and fauna and a nature reserve providing beautiful walking country. Nearby Lindale has a true 'Lakeland feel' with its narrow streets, traditional dwellings and quaint old pubs, while Cartmel, with its famous annual horse race meetings, and the pretty coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange-over-Sands are all worth a visit. With Lake Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead a short drive away, this attractive village makes an inspiring choice from which to enjoy the whole of a magical area.
