This grand period property, with two acres of gardens and grounds,
offers a unique opportunity for larger groups to experience a Lakeland
country house. Highly flexible accommodation for up to 20, offering
tremendous value and set in a gorgeous countryside setting only 2 miles
from Bowness and Lake Windermere.
Parts of Cleabarrow Manor originally date from the 1600s but major
additions were added in Victorian times and so you find a wonderful
blend of characterful period styles and original features throughout,
retaining the styles of various eras, including some original bathroom
and kitchen facilities. From stately grand bedrooms to cosy and
contemporary rooms, there's something for all tastes including a state

The property layout can be seen on the floorplan shown in the property
photographs and you will note some rooms are remote from the lounges /
dining rooms which benefits those wanting a quieter position in the
house. For your entertainment, you will find Wi-Fi (see 'nitty
gritty') and large screen TVs. Two (conjoined) lounges with woodburner
/ open fire are supplemented with a separate dining room, with formal
dining for 16. The country kitchen with traditional Aga and additional
large electric range at the heart is supplemented by an adjacent
traditional utility room and 'walker's' shower facility. Children (or
big kids!) will be enchanted by the chance to play in the extensive
lawned garden (access across the lane from the house).
