This apartment is the converted servant's quarters of a gentleman's residence in the heart of one of Lakeland's prettiest villages. It offers a chance to forget the car, or use as a base to discover all the Lake District has to offer - Lake Windermere is a 15min drive away. The flat is not overlooked, and the main bedroom overlooks Cavendish St, just along from the famous arch, yet offering peace and quiet as we're at the top of the house, and above street noise. You can sit on the windowseat and just watch the world go by! Our living room has fab views, over to the smallest National Hunt racecourse in Britain.
Eat at the dining table inside, and observe the world around you as you gaze over the rooftops, and down onto our courtyard. This stone walled yard is for your exclusive use, and has a garden sofa and chairs for al fresco dining, a bench seat, and there are cushions and more chairs in our stone store - again for your exclusive use. So if you fancy soaking up the sunshine after a day's walking; a read with a glass of wine, then this is the perfect spot. The en suite master bedroom with kingsize bed looks out towards the Priory. Just off the village square, and adjoining the famous arch, the apartment is seconds away from great pubs, just along the lane from the UK's top restaurant, two Michelin starred L'Enclume, and an array of village shops. You can BBQ in the courtyard - the property's enclosed English Garden patio is your's alone to enjoy. Yards away is the racecourse and footpaths over the Fell are just beyond. The apartment retains bags of character, with beamed ceilings (and walls and floors!),. It's beautifully kept, and has had new kitchen and bathrooms as of Jan 2017, and Bed2 was refurbed in Dec '17. There's free, unlimited WiFi; flat screen TVs, integral DVD player in Bed1; washer/dryer; etc. Outside in the yard, as mentioned, is our store house to accommodate your bikes/outdoor paraphernalia. Well behaved dogs welcome by arrangement.
