If you are looking for a comfortable retreat for a family holiday at any time of the year you really need look no further. This most desirable holiday home is in a truly delightful setting in the magnificent valley of Great Langdale.
The house has a great sense of peace and privacy surrounded by its own large well-tended garden (a former prizewinner in the Lakes Parish in Bloom competition), with a host of delightful trees and shrubs, sweeping lawns and a sunny south facing patio.
There are stunning Langdale Valley views all around, visible from most rooms in the house and some of Lakeland's most dramatic walks can be done from the door. A number of pubs serving good food and drink close by, the nearest being only half a mile away just down the valley. Rawfell has membership of the exclusive Langdale Leisure Club which is within a few minutes drive of the property.
Accommodation: Long driveway through the gardens to the parking area in front of the main entrance. Level access into hallway. L-shaped sitting room has leather sofas, multi-fuel burning stove (Sky TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/radio/cassette, ipod/iphone dock, pool table and free Wi-fi) and leads through to the most attractive farmhouse kitchen with its oil fired Aga - large windows overlooking the gardens.
One step up from the hall accesses a large ground floor bedroom with either twin beds or zip/link on request. Separate shower room with basin and wc. Separate utility room has plenty of space for storing your outdoor gear. Back door to garden.
Three further bedrooms upstairs. The large master bedroom has a king-size bed and large windows to two sides providing wonderful views.
