A gorgeous Lakelovers lodge house for six! Lovingly crafted from a coach house and stables that once served the 1st Earl of Lonsdale, Merewood Lodge is a part of an exclusive development of cottages nestled in glorious and peaceful private grounds, and boasts a location just a five minute stroll from Lake Windermere herself! Bring friends or family to enjoy the wonderful views and luxuries of this exceptional holiday home.
Our recommendations for luxury self-catering in the Lake District always exude character as well as contemporary comfort, and this historic home has plenty of that, as you'll realise as soon as you arrive at the stone-pillared driveway gate and see the pretty buildings tucked into the tree covered landscape. Inside, the light and airy décor and quality of finish make for a restful and rejuvenating experience. Comfortable leather sofas with footstools let you stretch out together in the lounge, while french doors entice you outside onto the balcony overlooking the lovely lawns with fells beyond. The generous dining-kitchen makes getting together for leisurely breakfasts a real pleasure, while the spacious bedrooms and sleek bathing facilities make sure you are properly pampered!
With the living quarters elevated to first-floor level to take advantage of the views, Merewood Lodge is superbly set up to make the most of its blissful situation in this most peaceful patch of countryside, and you'll love soaking in that calm tranquility in the relaxing garden, surrounded by chirping birdlife and frequented by deer and other Lakeland wildlife. More lovely garden grounds are close by at Brockhole. This Lake District visitor centre is only a short wander away from your front door, and here you can get adventurous with a tree-top trek, hop on a steamer boat, take a pony ride, play mini-golf or just wander the many trails by the lakeshore. At Merewood Country House Hotel, also close to your accommodation, you can enjoy a leisurely afternoon tea in splendid surroundings, while Cragwood just across the road has stunning grounds and lake views.
You're so close to Lake Windermere here, and, of course, you have many waterside pathways to discover, as well as every chance to get out on the fells. The Troutbeck valley behind you bids you explore its green delights, and draws you up to the summit of majestic Wansfell, with its imperious views over the whole stunning area. Ambleside is a few minutes away by car, as is busy Bowness, both full of fine restaurants, homely inns, and endless things to do.
A holiday at Merewood Lodge is truly something to savour, and comes with all the right ingredients to delight any Lakelover!
