The Space

This ground-floor cottage spans across the central courtyard of the Estate Home Farm with an abundance of space for large get-togethers; the perfect home to make memories during your escape to the Lakes.

Gaze up upon entering this stunning stone haven and you will be mesmerised by the gorgeous original exposed beams flowing throughout the ceilings with the true feeling of rural living. The open-plan nature of the living-dining area allows for the perfect social atmosphere in the evenings after a long day exploring the Estate and beyond. Each bedroom is spacious but cosy with classic décor and storage space. There is also a bath in the property to enjoy after a day of walking. The kitchen has everything you will need to host an evening of delight with all the friends and family, including a large dishwasher so no one has to do the washing up.

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.
