The Space

Perfect for a family getaway, this wonderful, terraced cottage in the heart of the Lake District.

Inside the house itself, there is a spacious living room with log burning stove on the ground floor. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, dining table, washing machine and dishwasher. From the sink you can enjoy woodland views across through the local forest. Upstairs, there is a family bathroom with shower and additional WC. The three bedrooms consist of one double, one twin and one triple bunk room. Outside, guests can enjoy a communal patio space and BBQ area.

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.
