For a romantic rural retreat in a location that is second to none, Fox Corner is sure to tick all your boxes. Set in the middle of the Lake District National Park, it provides the perfect base from which to explore one of England's most scenic locales. You will also be ideally situated just a short walk from Lake Windermere, and a couple of miles from the town Ambleside. And should you wish to stay put, you will have everything you need at Fox Corner. This property offers contemporary fixtures, a cosy wood burning stove, stunning views of the surrounding countryside, and its own private hot tub. Upon entering the house, you will step into the open planned living area. This gorgeous space sits beneath vaulted, timber framed ceilings and offers the perfect relaxation spot – especially for those colder evenings. A comfy two-person couch sits opposite the flat screen TV (with PS4) and a cosy wood burning stove to ensure you remain toasty all year round. The adjacent kitchen area offers modern appliances and has ample workspace. It is equipped with all necessary mod cons for cooking up a gourmet meal, and for the coffee lovers, there is even a Nespresso machine. You will also find a little dining table for two, the ideal spot for a romantic evening meal. Descend the living room's open staircase and you will find the bedroom, complete with a plush king size bed that guarantee's a comfy night's sleep. The ensuite features a WC, basin, and double cubicle walk-in shower for added convenience. Outside, the garden features a spacious, elevated decking area with sumptuous views of the surrounding countryside which can be enjoyed from the outdoor furniture or from the comfort of your own hot tub. Guests will love sharing an evening drink here, or enjoying a soak in the tub after a day out wandering the picturesque Lake District. The Lake District has long been held as one of the UK's most scenic regions and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2017. This storybook mountainous region is replete with walks, cycle routes, and climbs to enjoy. Fox Corner sits just a stone's throw from Windermere, England's largest natural lake. The lake has long been a thriving holiday destination, and in the summer months one can catch a ferry to the numerous settlements on its banks. The towns of Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere, while basically adjoined, are separate towns, both of which are thriving tourist hotspots, with cafés, bars, restaurants, and independent shops. Closer to home, the charming town of Ambleside is just a few miles north of Fox Corner and is also worth a visit.

    • 3 nights Min Stay

    Tucked away down a private lane, hidden by trees and sitting on the lakeside, Far Boathouse is an idyllic hideaway perfect for a romantic couple who love the water. Unlike many boathouses this one has the luxury of being on the larger side and is rather luxurious. Dispense with your coats in the hallway and make your way in to the cosy open plan living area. The first thing that will strike you is the view. A large, plump comfy sofa and armchair sit facing bi-folding glass doors providing an uninterrupted view of the beautiful lake with the Cumbrian hills framing it in the distance. You might want to just crack open a bottle, turn on the pretty electric fire and settle in to watch the sky change over the water. The interior has been thoughtfully decorated to provide a cosy nook with everything you could need to burrow in and leave the world behind. The kitchen is fully equipped for the creation of wonderful feasts and the hosts have kindly provided a wine cooler to keep things extra civilised. Enjoy a long, lazy supper at the unique marble dining table which seats four. Afterwards you can snuggle up and watch a movie, perhaps crack open the monopoly, chess or dominoes, or maybe just get back to that view. You'll sleep deeply and peacefully in the comfortable king size bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton bedding and in the morning you can watch the news from the comfort of your duvet on the Sony TV. The bathroom has a unique driftwood style and a double sized shower with plenty of hot water where you can make use of all the complimentary toiletries before wrapping yourself up in a big fluffy bathrobe and heading into the kitchen for coffee. Open the balcony door and step out on to the fabulous decked balcony, settle at the table and enjoy your breakfast as the sail boats glide by. The boathouse comes with private mooring so you can hire a kayak, canoe or boat from a nearby supplier and they will deliver and collect it for you. What a wonderful way to start the day, gliding along on the water with a flask of coffee and your camera to hand. Situated just three miles from Pooley Bridge where you'll find three very welcoming pubs and the fabulous Chestnut House which has a “gin wall’ of over 400 different gins, as well as lots of other spirits, liqueurs, beers and local produce. Perfect if you want to pick up a gift or two! If you're in the market for some fine dining make reservations at 1863, an award-winning restaurant which offers a seven-course tasting menu. For independent shops, plenty of great eateries, head over to nearby Penrith and submerge yourself in the foodie culture. There's also a great farmer's market where you can stock up on local goodies. Whether you choose to have a picnic by the lake or head back to your retreat and watch the stars from the comfort of your lakeside balcony, you'll never want to leave this wonderful boathouse.

  • Hidden River Cabin

    • 2 nights min low season 3 nights high & Weekends

    Found in a secluded spot between the Lake District and the Scottish border, the Hidden River Cabins are large and luxurious – perfect for getting away to rural Cumbria in style. Make your choice from five incredible log-built lodges in peaceful surroundings, each sleeping between six and ten guests. On the banks of the River Lyne, these eco-friendly cabins sit comfortably amongst nature. Each cabin is kept cosy with a combination of solar power and a wood-burning stove. The countryside setting makes them the perfect place for pets to unwind too, so it’s a real plus that dogs are welcome at each of the Hidden River Cabins. All cabins are equipped with a hot tub looking out over the river, and an outdoor seating area for dining and relaxing. There are three cabins which sleep six: Roe Deer, Otterstone and Kingfisher, which feature two double bedrooms and a sofa-bed. All have that unmistakable log cabin ambience, from the modern bathroom to the fully equipped kitchen and a comfortable living area, complete with TV and DVD. Two larger cabins, Bluebell and Foxglove, add a pair of twin rooms to the mix, making them ideal for groups of up to ten. Two of the bedrooms have a TV and these two cabins benefit from the luxury of underfloor heating. If you fancy getting social around a barbecue when the weather is fine, you can rent one for the duration of your stay at any of the cabins. From the great fishing location of the Otterstone cabin to Kingfisher’s elevated river view, every one of these lodges is in a beautiful position. They’re all kitted out with luxury bed linens, duvets and logs for the wood burner, so all you need do is turn up and make yourself comfortable. Hidden River Cabins lie around 11 miles from the city of Carlisle and even closer to the edge of the magnificent Kielder Forest Park which stretches to the border of England and Scotland. Exploring the best of the borders is easy, with the likes of Gretna Green, Carlisle Castle and the Solway Coast not far away. The area is great for all kinds of activities too, from paintballing to flying and 4x4 off-roading… or perhaps you would prefer the simple pleasures of walks in the woods or down by the river. Be sure to drop by the Hidden River Café too, where there is always something tasty being cooked up, whatever the time of day.

    Experience the magical ruggedness of the Lake District from the comfort of this peaceful and luxurious B&B. Choose from one of six stunning rooms - all stylish, luxurious, comfortable and cosy. It's the perfect space to hunker down and take in the spectacular surroundings or return to after long days hiking the trails. Each is named Lake District-appropriate, from Fell to Tarn to Herdwick, and, while they all share wonderful views and high-standards of luxury and comfort, the room interiors are as different as the names. And while the decor and layout may differ, each room is ensuite with oodles of hot water, gorgeous complimentary smellies and fluffy towels and bathrobes. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer wonderful views of the surroundings and underfloor heating and sheepskin rugs ensure visitors are cosy throughout their stay. Wake to the sun's rays gently warming the face and the sound of the birds beginning their day. Make a morning coffee courtesy of the handy Nespresso machine (kettles are also provided for those hankering after a proper cuppa), hop back into bed, or settle into the comfy armchairs and watch the weather roll over before heading to breakfast. After demolishing a hearty breakfast, guests are fully-fuelled for a day exploring the tarns, fells, lakes and pubs of this breathtaking national park. Guests share a large, comfortable lounge where they can kick off their boots (there is a handy drying room), relax with a drink from the honesty bar, swap tales with other travellers or spend some quiet time reading and enjoying the tranquility of their surroundings. There are plenty of activities to keep guests busy. Apart from exploring the Lakes and Fells, there are Roman Forts, steam railways and the pretty harbour town of Whitehaven, a great spot to grab dinner. After a day exploring, return for a romantic evening under the stars, glass of bubbly in-hand, looking out at the starlit sky and making plans for the next day.
