Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday farmhouse in Crosthwaite and Lyth - The White House in the Lakes

A tranquil country setting with incredible views & just 10 mins to Bowness

The White House in the Lakes is a large detached home with plenty of space for large families or groups. Just 10 minutes from Bowness on Windermere.

Situated within walking distance of 2 excellent dining pubs (The Masons Arms and The Hare & Hounds) and just a few minutes drive from several more.

Close enough to Bowness and Lake Windermere to enjoy some shopping or lake activities yet far enough away to enjoy the secluded setting. Lots of lovely walks on your doorstep including Gummer's How - one of the finest views in the Lakes. A large well equipped kitchen, countryside views from each stylish bedroom, modern contemporary bathrooms together with a light and airy garden room and a large oak beamed lounge, with woodburning stove, makes this a very easy home for you to relax and enjoy. There is plenty of space outside for BBQ's and outside dining and lots of room for games with the children or simply lying on the lawn with a good book!

Guest Rating: 5 out of 5



On arrival at the house we were greeted with a lovely welcome pack of well thought out and good quality products - tea, coffee, milk, red and white wine, spread, orange juice, marmalade. We had fresh flowers on the table and the fire all ready made up ready to light. The house was beautifully appointed with stunning views across the valley. Decoration and furnishings were to a very high standard. Bedding was crisp and comfortable with big fluffy towels and bathrobes in every bedroom. The pictures are representative of the house. We stayed at the end of November and were very lucky with the weather. It was a lovely walk to the nearest pub. The only addition that would have helped would have been an OS map to orientate ourselves and find nice walks but this is by no means a criticism. We were a group of 10 and all loved the property, found it better equipped than any other self catering properties we had stayed at. Loved the personal touches like the fresh fresh flowers and didn't want to leave. We will be return.

Brilliant stay

There were 9 of us there and we had a brilliant time. The owner is lovely and had everything sorted for us very quickly. We had no problems with anything and the house is huge with lots of space to hang out! Thanks again Di!

A TRULY MEMORABLE BIRTHDAY ... MOST AMAZING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house is where we celebrated my extra special birthday back in October. To say all 12 of us thought we'd died and gone to heaven is an understatement!! It is an absolutely stunning house.....probably one of the most luxurious we've ever stayed in. The location, atmosphere and ambience is truly amazing. The attention to detail is perfect.....down to the gorgeous "White Company" bedding and toiletries. Pure luxury. We had dinner one evening, cooked by outside caterers, a wonderful Thai lady and her husband. All prepared in the house and beautifully served, followed by singing, music and dancing. Although there were 12 of us, the living accommodation is so spacious that at no time did it feel crowded. Great craic from start to finish. We cannot wait to return to sit in front of the amazing log burner in the winter or outside on the gorgeous patio in the summer, with stunning open views to the fields. This is just perfect for a weekend away from it all or a special celebration. It's just so relaxing. You must try it......unforgettable xxx

Spacious,Luxurious and cosy

  • 4 of 5

My husband arranged a surprise 60th birthday party for all my family.

What a clean quality house! Loads of space for all the family plus an Aga to cope with the volumes of food required.

The surprise continued with the arrival of an amazing chef and his assistant to cook us a very special meal on my birthday night

The location was fabulous no need for a car beautiful walks and great pubs straight out the door

Very nice house in tranquil surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and spacious house in rural area. When seven women stays together-the amount of hot water was a little problematic ....

Owner's Response: Dear Mette Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a 5 star review and I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in both my home and the Lake District. I do leave full instructions with regard to re-setting the hot water with the welcome letter and welcome pack. The instructions also contain information about the heating system and the woodburner. The hot water can be set to be on all day or boosted when required. I wonder if, perhaps, you omitted to read this information.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this property highly enough. It is spacious, clean and very well equipped. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will certainly be back. Brilliant location and a short distance from some excellent pubs. Di was very helpful and quick to respond to our initial enquiry.

The Lakes is a premium location for all outdoor activities.

From the house, you can wander for miles along the local country lanes, most leading to some of the most noted pubs in Cumbria, including The Hare & Hounds (1 mile), The Masons Arms at Strawberry Bank (1.5 miles and North West pub of the year 2012) and the renowned Punch Bowl Inn in Crosthwaite - 2.5 miles.

There are numerous routes for both mountain and road biking in the area.

For sightseers, and beyond the incredible hills, mountains, forests and lakes, the delightful villages of Ambleside, Hawkshead, Sawrey (Beatrix Potter's home) are within 30 minutes.

If you are a sailor, then of course the Lake is close, to enjoy the water with boats for hire, or, if you bring your own trailered craft, the slip way into the Lake is 10-15 minutes away. Plenty of room here at The White House in the Lakes to park your craft between lake adventures.
