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.

There are many miles of walks to be enjoyed in the area, catering to all fitness levels, including scenic lakeside strolls and challenging hikes and climbs. The most famous of the lakes, Windermere, is accessed via the ferry situated just a short drive from the property and is a great place to enjoy browsing the shops and perhaps stocking up on picnic supplies before spending a day on the water. Around the lake there are several places to hire boats and other watercrafts or to hop on board one of the leisure cruises which run up and down the water at a relaxing pace, allowing visitors to fully appreciate the beautiful surroundings. There is abundance of birdlife, plenty of activities and cycle rides straight from the door.

Guests will immediately get a sense of just how special this property is, as soon as they climb the steps and enter the grand hallway with its imposing staircase. To the right is the apartment on the ground floor. The main space in this studio-style apartment itself is made up of the stunning lounge/kitchen/diner/sleeping area with large bay window. The lounge area makes the most of the views from the bay window, with comfortable sofa and chair, where you can relax after day of exploring and watch the TV/DVD. The kitchen is equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave and fridge with ice compartment, everything you require for holiday dining and to help with the cleaning after, a dishwasher. The stylish bedroom area with feature canopy effect and open fire provides a cosy place to snuggle up in the double bed, in front of the fire. Finishing the accommodation is the bathroom with shower over bath and WC.

Outside there are extensive shared gardens with plenty of space to relax and again, stunning views and a footpath leads directly from the grounds up to Claife Heights. There is also off-road parking for one car. Guests also have access to a shared utility area with two washing machines and two tumble dryers in the main property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Think carefully before booking this suite. The rooms above have wooden floorboards and sound travels. The first night was almost our last as the talking and walking above us was difficult to take. The cleaning leaves a lot to be desired with dust laden cobwebs from the chandelier and uncleaned tiles behind the toilet. On the plus side location is gRead morereat and room comfortable. Hide

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.

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
