The chief portion of a Victorian gentleman’s residence that was divided into three in the 1960’s, Brunt House is spacious and lavishly designed, and enjoys a premium location at the very heart of the beautiful Lake District. A little decadence to match the magical scenery!
Professional interior design and indulgent home comforts will make your stay a real pleasure, and the gorgeous setting will certainly enhance that. Located near Skelwith Bridge between Ambleside and Coniston at the mouth of the breath-taking Great Langdale Valley, your holiday home occupies prime Lake District countryside in the heart of the hills.
Beautiful Loughrigg Tarn is nearby, offering a stunning picnicking location for your party, and affording access to Loughrigg Fell. The views from here to the iconic Langdale Pikes might be taken straight from a fairytale, and you can walk the Pikes themselves by taking a ride into the Great Langdale Valley, enjoying some of the finest scenery in the country on your way. Neighbouring Little Langdale is enchantingly picturesque, and you'll want to visit Slaters Bridge and Cathedral Cavern, relics of the local slate-mining industry.
When you return from your adventures, you'll love having several country pubs within striking distance, including the homely Talbot Bar at the Skelwith Bridge Hotel, and the wonderful array of cakes and delicacies at Chester's By the River, a lovely cafe and gift shop where you can happily while away an afternoon.
And inside Brunt House itself the luxurious Grand Drawing Room, superb modern bespoke kitchen and indulgent bed and bath rooms will offer your party the ultimate in relaxation. There is plenty to keep you entertained, too, in the top-floor Penthouse Den, whether you preference to play on a Ps4 or a full-sized profressional table-football table.
