Enjoying a rural location among three acres of landscaped gardens and being tastefully designed, this property is just perfect for couples looking to get away and enjoy Cumbria throughout the year.

This pretty ground-floor apartment is set within an impressive country house in the picturesque village of Near Sawrey, located between Lake Windermere and Esthwaite Water.

Handsomely decorated and retaining many period features, the apartment makes a lovely setting for exploring this idyllic area. The property enjoys extensive grounds, and you will also have complimentary access to a nearby spa with its indoor pool, two relaxing hot tubs, sauna and steam room.

The grounds of the house offer beautiful shared landscaped gardens for you to discover, with a footpath leading directly up to Claife Heights which overlooks Lake Windermere (1 mile) and which your tail-wagging companion will love.

The picturesque village of Near Sawrey is home to Hill Top where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her most famous stories. There are numerous nearby villages with dog-friendly places to eat and drink including Hawkshead (3 miles), Coniston (7 miles) and Newby Bridge (7.5 miles). This is a glorious area for dogs to discover, with Esthwaite Water (2 miles) and Lake Windermere (1 mile) both within easy reach.

A lovely, well equipped apartment with a homely feel. Very clean and the welcome pack on arrival with milk, tea, coffee and biscuits was much appreciated. The heating was good and even though the weather wasn't great outside we always returned to a well heated room. Beautiful views, shared gardens and only a few minutes walk to nearest pub.

A totally tranquil space to use as a base for walking. Being pet friendly was brilliant, as we always take our dog away with us. The family of deer living in the grounds were beautiful to see everyday. We'd go back in a heart beat. Loved the peace and quiet.

Beautiful and well appointed apartment in a large converted country house set in large grounds with stunning views. Easy access by car to the jewels of the Lake District although probably a lot busier in the summer months. Good pub within 5 minutes walk offering real ale and excellent food. We will be back!

A great apartment in gorgeous grounds. Far enough out of the way but close enough to most attractions. Lots of outdoor space for the dog and many other friendly holiday makers. The local pub is literally a short walk down the path but you have to book in advance as gets pretty booked up with their own residents. We loved our stay there!
