The Experience

If you’re looking for a holiday to treasure, Holmewell House is the ideal location, this was a favourite haunt of Beatrix Potter and there are links with the Lakeland poets too.

Situated right on the shoreline of Lake Windermere, Holmewell House has recently been renovated and refurbished by local craftsmen and takes its inspiration from a property in Morocco.

The house’s many large windows flood the interior with light, while providing stunning views from almost every room. There are luxurious touches everywhere, including underfloor heating in every room and a Sonos sound system throughout the property.

A large, elegant terrace leads out to the lake and the property has its own private jetty. You’re in the perfect position to enjoy the majesty and grandeur of the Lake District – and with 5,000 acres of a private estate on your doorstep, you don’t have to go far to enjoy the landscape.

There’s even a farm shop on the estate where you can order hampers of local produce.

The Graythwaite Estate stretches for 5,000 acres and includes some idyllic walks in the woodland above Lake Windermere. You could spend a day exploring this magical landscape, or contact Graythwaite Adventure to book your place on an excursion or adventure to try out an activity like paddle boarding, climbing or clay pigeon shooting.

Lake Windermere is one of the most popular lakes in the area. You can explore the lake in lots of different ways, with rowing boats, kayaks, paddle boards and more available to hire. Or why not visit the Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories to learn more about boats on this iconic stretch of water.

Graythwaite Hall Gardens are just on your doorstep, and Holehird Gardens are also a beautiful destination. The walled garden is a stunning display of colour.
