  The Detail...

Head to one of the most beautiful places in Great Britain at The Place, a converted 17th Century farmhouse overlooking Loweswater in the Lake District.

Sleeping up to 8 people, the property is the perfect getaway for families or large groups. On the ground floor the farmhouse kitchen has everything you need to cook up a storm from its handmade units, Belfast sink and range cooker, to its spacious American style fridge/freezer, coffee maker, and plenty of storage space. Guests then stroll through into the spacious dining room with table and chairs seating up to eight people and a wood burner keeping the room cosy in winter.

The sitting room boasts original features, some of which date back to 1664, including the fireplace, beams, bread oven, and salt cellar. There's also a widescreen, another wood burner and comfy sofas for cosy movie nights in. Also on this level is the first bedroom, which can be a king size or twin, the utility room with washer and dryer, and the shower room complete with basin and toilet.

Upstairs are three further bedrooms offering fantastic views across the lake. One bedroom is king sized, one is a double, and the other is a twin. The family bathroom has a freestanding roll top bath, where you can while away time enjoying a nice hot soak, and a separate shower. There's also a cloakroom with an additional toilet.

Outside guests can discover the games barn which houses a table tennis table, table football, and a pool table. This sits in the large, enclosed garden which is also home to a dining terrace with table and chairs for eight, a log brazier, several other seating areas, and even a secret garden.

The location is the real draw of The Place, with one of the most scenic and unspoilt areas of the Lake District right on your doorstep. There is plenty of walking, cycling, boating, and sightseeing to be done around Loweswater and the nearby woodland. Just 1.5 miles away is the Kirkstile Inn with its home cooked menu and amazing beer garden. Cockermouth is the nearest town and is famed for its shopping, while a little further afield is Keswick, which offers plenty of independent shops, a theatre, and vintage cinema.
