New Lodge was originally the gate house for Leeming House, dating back to the early 1900s and situated in a stunning location with outstanding views over Lake Ullswater.
To take full advantage of lakeside living, the house has its own private shore line and a small jetty at the end of the lawn, this is a wonderfully unique holiday property.
This luxurious lakeside lodge benefits from a stunning architecturally designed extension incorporating large areas of glass allowing you to enjoy the panoramic views of the lake, Barton Fell and Haling Fell from numerous levels within the house.
