The Space

This delightful cottage with lovely woodland scenes is the perfect setting for discovering the terrain that inspired the likes of Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.

Named for its rich history on this classic countryside Estate, Forge is an excellent choice for friend or family alike seeking a base for their adventures in the lakes. With a delightful open plan living/dining/kitchen area, no one will miss out on the fun during mealtimes and evenings. The bedrooms look out across the forests and natural surroundings on the first floor, making immersing into relaxation all the easier during your stay.

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.
