Ref: 4082

  • Sleeps: 22

Overlooking beautiful Derwentwater and the fells beyond this beautiful early 18thC Georgian house is a 'first' for Heart of the Lakes being the largest holiday home we have ever offered. If you are planning a special visit maybe an anniversary, a significant birthday, extended family gathering or just an opportunity to spend time with friends this could be the place for you. The house is available for two or three night breaks with very flexible change-over days, and also up to full weeks and we can even arrange catering for that special occasion.

There is so much to say about Derwentwater House but words are never enough to capture the welcoming ambience of this beautifully presented property which is sure to please. The property was originally a gracious manor house and retains many original features now augmented by the owner's flare for design and styling.

With eight en-suite bedrooms in the main house, three of which are named suites,  you can accommodate sixteen in great comfort. Why not take a virtual reality tour around the house >> Take Tour <<
