A charming Lakeland cottage, perfect for large groups and surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in the Lake District
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 3 nights
Gather your close friends and family and lose yourselves in the Lake District with a stay in this charming Lakeland stone cottage. The beautiful grade II listed building was originally designed and built for the Directors of the Kendal-Windermere Railway. White Moss No.2 now provides the perfect location for a holiday escape with some breath-taking scenery.
Situated on a private road with a few other holiday homes, the house is beautifully decorated with cosy communal rooms that are ideal for celebrations or get-togethers with friends and family. Its large inviting kitchen is a social space, perfect for a few drinks while dinner is being prepared. It boasts both an AGA and a range cooker, providing plenty of cooking power for everyone. The lounge is a relaxed space with enormous Chesterfield sofas grouped around a wood-burning stove. Make your way through to the majestic dining room and find it complete with an oak table and chairs and its own wood-burner for those chilly winter months.
If you’d rather concentrate on exploring the beautiful landscape than thinking about the cooking, there are several catering options available for special meals or throughout the whole stay. The clearing up will all be taken care of too.
The property comfortably sleeps 12 in five bedrooms, each decorated to show off its unique character. There are three bathrooms and an extra toilet downstairs. In the bathroom at the top of the house, there’s a luxurious freestanding roll-top bath, perfect for a soak after a day exploring the Lakes.
You can also enjoy a movie night in your own in-house cinema. White Moss has a 12 seat cinema in the cellar with 75 inch smart TV and sound bar. Log into your Netflix or Amazon prime account and go to the movies in the privacy of your holiday cottage.
Outside, there’s a charming rear courtyard area with a barbecue and outdoor furniture so you can take your meals outside and soak up the scenery. There is also a seven-seat hot tub and beauty treatments are available at the house to help you relax after a day walking, or if you just feel the need for some pampering.
White Moss No.2 is perfectly located to enjoy the best of what the Lake District has to offer. With the bars and shops of Windermere Village just a brief stroll away, everything you need is right on your doorstep. There are also some fantastic restaurants and pubs nearby, including the Michelin-starred HRiSHi at the Gilpin Hotel.
When venturing into the surrounding Lakeland, it’s not all about walking. Bike hire is available just across the road and you can even try your hand at activities like clay pigeon shooting or archery.
The house is nestled near the foot of Orrest Head, which was Alfred Wainwright’s first Lakeland fell. From the summit he took in the astonishing views of the largest lake in England, Lake Windermere, and the high fells including Scafell Pike. This short walk, which can be accomplished from White Moss No.2, inspired Wainwright to explore more of the Lake District and share what he found with walkers for decades to come in his famous guidebooks.
