Toad Mire is a beautiful lakeside lodge situated 1.5 miles from the small village of Backbarrow on the southern tip of Lake Windermere, a wonderful, luxurious retreat with a fabulous open-plan living area.
Completely lake-fronted, you can expect to see extensive views from the sitting room with its glass windows and patio across the lake, and you may even spot the resident otter or swans.
Well-suited for families or friends to come together, this retreat is designed to a standard of luxury, beginning with a lounge which hosts sumptuous leather sofas, and a woodburning stove to warm those cooler evenings.
White-washed walls, and spotlights in the ceiling, surround a dining table situated by the window; a fantastic outlook over the lake and surrounding woodland, as well as evidence of wondrous nature within in the Osprey painting hanging on the wall, inspired by a photograph taken by a previous guest!
The glamorous floor to ceiling windows continue round to the kitchen, which is spaciously arranged, with fabulous wood effect units, and a small breakfast area, perfect for a warm cup of tea throughout the afternoon.
There are three beautiful bedrooms included, each wrapped in more enticing views, which you can wake up to every day that goes by, with an interior matching that of a hotel quality.
The ground floor bedrooms are as follows; 2 x super-king size doubles each both en-suite with monsoon shower, basin and WC, 1 x twin with en-suite bath, shower over, basin and WC.
Exceptional extras a hot tub overlooking the lake – perfect for stargazing in the evenings, outdoor furniture, sun loungers and a barbecue.
Surrounded by woodland and thriving bluebells and more, you will look forward to opening up the sliding doors, and enjoying everything Toad Mire has to offer.
Stunning location and stunning lodge with great facilities.
