Gorgeous lakeside property in Cumbria with supremely comfy furnishings and stunning views across the water.
Waterhead House is listed in affiliation with Olivers Travels.
Overlooking the sublime Lake Windermere and only minutes from Windermere, Bowness Bay and Ambleside, Waterhead House is located in one of the most desirable parts of the Lake District.
Less than a mile north you will find the thriving town of Ambleside, while travelling south you’ll find Windermere village and the slightly larger town of Bowness-on-Windermere, which offer endless quaint cafes, traditional pubs, fantastic restaurants, outdoors shops and large supermarkets, as well as the flagship store for Lakeland to make the most of, as well as an Information Centre! A lake cruise from just outside your front door will take you down to this end of the lake with ease, and you can enjoy the fabulous views along the way!
Windermere is England's largest lake, at 10.5 miles long and 219 feet at its deepest point! And unsurprisingly is one of the most famous and popular areas in the whole of the Lake District, with unrivalled hiking, cycling and water-sports on offer, not to mention attractions including crazy golf, climbing, hot air ballooning and orienteering!
Something of a mecca for cyclists, walkers and water-sports enthusiasts, the landscapes awaiting you have to be seen to be believed! Leave the car behind and lose yourself in the fresh air! For the true adventurers, unbeatable skiing, climbing and mountain-biking can be found throughout the Park, while more relaxing pursuits including boat hire and golf can be found a stone’s throw away.
Nearby attractions including the Lakes Aquarium, with the UK's largest collection of freshwater fish, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where you can enjoy a 3.5-mile steam locomotive trip into the Leven Valley and the delightful World of Beatrix Potter, where the fabulous animals of Beatrix Potter's tales are brought to life in three dimensions! All make for a great day out for all ages and can easily be combined for those short on time thanks to their proximity.
The Lake District is England's largest National Park, with more than 3100km of rights of way, you can walk, cycle and ride yourself silly through this enchanting valley as you marvel at some of the world’s best scenery! Adventure courses, boat hire, all kinds of water-sports and much more ensure you can take the Lakes at your own pace, be that racing down the mountains on a bike, fell-running up them or gliding through them on a Launch, the possibilities are endless!
Carlisle, Leeds and Newcastle airports are all within a two-hour drive or thereabouts, and there are train stations dotted throughout the National Park, so accessing the house on public transport is certainly possible. The average journey time from London and the south-east is about five hours, while it’s about one and a half hours from Manchester and two hours from York.
