Mere Syke

Elterwater, Langdale Valleys

Ref: 2038

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Changeover: Saturday


We think Mere Syke is a really delightful holiday home and we are sure you will enjoy your visit to this beautiful location right in the heart of the lakes. This spacious country house dates from the late 19thC and was once the Dower House for the High Close Country Estate, taking up the major portion of Mere Syke with a small adjoining  'coachman's cottage'. It retains many period features with a modern and stylish twist designed to cater for every holiday need. You will be spoiled for choice with the many walks and rambles from the door and with Elterwater village just a short stroll away you can enjoy a couple of Lakeland's best eating places - The Britannia and The Eltermere Hotel both of which serve excellent food. A handy and well stocked village shop at Chapel Stile has most things you will need (1mile) and there is a good local bus service down the valley if you want to do any of the major walks without using your car.

Accommodation : The entrance porch/boot room opens into an impressive entrance hall leading through into the open plan kitchen/family dining room with doors to the terrace, garden and fine views (TV). Separate utility room with lots of hanging space for outdoor gear. There are two sitting rooms for relaxing in. One a library style, tasteful and relaxing dual aspect room with two windows and doors to the terrace, overlooking the surrounding peaks, featuring three sofas and stereo. The other  an entertainment room also with doors to the terrace (corner sofa, TV with full sky package, DVDs). Both rooms have feature decorative fireplaces.  The property also has board games and jigsaws for your entertainment.

An oak staircase leads to the first floor where there are four bedrooms. The master super-king corner room has beautiful views to the Langdale Pikes and Wetherlam, and is en-suite with walk in shower, basin and wc.

The fourth bedroom is a twin and would delight the younger members of your party with its selection of toys and games. Family bathroom (double walk-in shower, basin and wc) .
