Relax and Unwind with all the Family

We have a range of apartments that are suitable for families of varying sizes. While a single apartment accommodates 2, there is the option of connecting two of these to make room for two more, with our large apartment accommodating up to 6 people. Feel free to bring the whole family with you and enjoy the comforts of home in a beautiful location. We have all the amenities that you could ever need for that perfect break away including a kitchen fully-stocked with utensils, pots and pans for you to cook up a hearty breakfast before a day’s walking, and to brew a tea to warm yourself at the end of the day (yes - we do provide the tea, the milk and the sugar!)

Support the Environment You Visit

The money you spend on your getaway, here on the stunning shores of Windermere, goes to support the work we do to protect those freshwater environments that you will get to enjoy while staying in the Lake District (just a few steps from our own front door!). You can relax safe in the knowledge that your trip is having a positive impact not only on you and your family, but on the environment around you, by supporting a charity that is dedicated to making our lakes, rivers and streams healthy again. Not only this, but we work hard to support local Cumbrian businesses, by providing you with a basket full of delicious local produce for your stay.

Your Adventure Awaits

Situated at the foot of Claife Heights, you will be perfectly placed to embark on many of the Lake District's beautiful walks. Why not take a gentle stroll along the west shore of Windermere and take in the spectacular views - not forgetting to visit the iconic Wray Castle along the way! For those looking to experience something a little more challenging, tackle one of Wainwright's peaks and hike the 629ft climb up Brant Fell, overlooking Bowness-on-Windermere. 

Whatever adventure you decide to embark upon, we're sure you'll enjoy your stay here in the beautiful Lakes.
