Excellent eco-friendly accommodation for eight in sought-after Skelwith! A love-seat pagoda sits by the rocks and rivulets of the Brathay in the picture-perfect garden of Rosewood By The River, and a luxurious and generously sized garden dining set awaits you on the patio. This is a place to retreat to with friends and family and relax fully in the finest of Lakeland locations!
Like a wooden house from a fairytale, Rosewood By The River perches charmingly on the banks of the Brathay as it flows through the pretty hamlet of Skelwith Bridge. Mature shrubs and trees surround the eco-friendly structure, ideally suited to its surroundings, and the green and shady garden is a magical place to sit and listen to the soothing sound of the waters slipping by.
Inside, the pale greys of the living area are perfectly in tune with your need for relaxation, and the comfortable yet elegant furnishings are echoed throughout, including in the superb glass-ceiling sun-room, and in the sophisticated kitchen, which offers you the pinnacle of the country living experience. Excellent use of glass in Rosewood extends to the bedrooms, and your private retreats are spacious, stylish and pleasingly light-filled.
Skelwith boasts an excellent hotel with walker's bar, along with the well-loved cafe Chesters By The River, which offers a genuinely addictive selection of fine cakes and pastries, excellent coffee, amazing salads, and a winningly relaxed atmosphere for sitting out on the verandah on a sunny day. There is a lovely gift shop attached, too, and we're sure your party will want to stock up on picnic materials here!
Rambling paths run through the fields and woodlands in all directions towards Coniston, Hawkshead, Grasmere and Elterwater. The latter sits in the Great Langdale Valley, in whose mouth your holiday retreat lies. Along with Little Langdale, this is one of the most stunning and sought-after areas in Lakeland, and is full of excellent exploring, climbing, biking and hiking opportunities, including routes up the iconic sharp-peaked Langdale Pikes.
With popular Ambleside and all the attractions of Lake Windermere in easy reach, the location, like the property itself, is a real winner! Rosewood By The River will quickly become a family favourite when you stay with us here.
