The Space

This Cottage is a sizeable space which boasts fantastic views through the surrounding woodland and Homefarm Courtyard.

Briar is an absolute favourite of ours here at the Graythwaite Estate. Its modern finish is absolutely beautiful with soft tones and warmth, of course with its own log burning stove to cuddle up next to on cold nights. The kitchen holds everything that you need with delightful views across into the surrounding forests. Upstairs you will find the master double bedroom and two individual single bedrooms, so there is that added privacy and space for your party. Lastly but certainly not least, outside of the property is an al fresco dining set up to relish in the natural delights of the estate as the sun goes down in the evenings. You are also welcome to use the shared BBQ facilities dotted across the courtyard.

The Graythwaite Home Farm Courtyard truly is the beating heart of the Estate – accessed via the iconic and enchanting trail bordered with cheery blossom trees, you are truly entering a very special place. Here, you will be less than a mile from the shores of Lake Windermere where you can enjoy the peace and serenity of the lake without the hustle and bustle, or even book in an action-packed activity with the star-studded Graythwaite Adventure. The Courtyard is within easy reach of our fabulous facilities, such as the communal heated swimming pool which can be booked in advance of your stay and the home farm shop offering locally produced products. You are also able to pre-order groceries and treats from the shop to be ready in your property for you when you arrive!

You are also welcome to make use of the communal games room, the communal dining and BBQ facilities dotted across the courtyard and children’s play area, found through the historic and rustic stone walls of the Courtyard leading out through the forest and natural surroundings beyond.
