Cuddle up together in countryside contentment, Lake District style! Close to the honeypot bustle of Bowness and the popular shores of Lake Windermere, yet idyllically situated in a quiet and majestic country hall, this lovely little apartment is waiting to hug a pair of Lakelovers with warmth and well-being, and all the happiness the concept of ‘hygge’ represents!
The Danish term 'hygge', pronounced 'hue-gah', has no direct English translation, but perhaps you can find that meaning expressed in this luxurious first-floor love nest for two? Carefully designed as an intimate space in which to completely unwind and put all thoughts of the outside world aside, Hygge at No. 8 is lodged on the first-floor of the superb Arts and Crafts designed Applethwaite Hall. This fabulous country residence dates from 1901, and is full of original features, and benefits from a sympathetic 2017 upgrade, making for a characterful yet thoroughly contemporary living experience for the select group of just 12 apartments.
Yours is an effortlessly elegant living space, where simplicity and clean lines marry beautifully with deeply ingrained comfort. From the decadent Villeroy and Bosch bathroom to the superbly realised open-plan living-area and the gorgeously romantic bedroom, quality and taste are clearly the watchwords here.
Can views induce 'hygge'? We certainly get the feeling they do when we look through the stunning stone-mullioned windows here toward distant the Langdale mountains. Make yourselves a mug of hot-chocolate, get into your most comfortable sweaters, and just sit surveying the beauty of this majestic slice of Lakeland scenery!
The dignified surroundings of Applethwaite Hall wrap you up in a cocoon of perfect tranquility, and its a real pleasure to wander the well groomed grounds. Take a walk, too, onto the adjacent National Trust farmland, or get out and about on the many footpaths that criss-cross the land locally. Orrest Head provides an easily accessible peak at nearby Windermere village, while the Central Fells of Lakeland rise just to your north. Abundant water-based fun is to be had at Bowness Bay, and you mustn't miss a blissful cruise on the famous lake steamers. And then return home to settle down in your perfect little nest for two!
Come and sample some cosy 'hygge' with us at No. 8, and we guarantee you'll be a Lakelover for life!
