The Space

Designed by the Sandys family themselves, Holmewell House is the epitome of luxury, with panoramic views spanning across the glassy shores of the world renown Windermere.

Restorations at Holmewell House commenced in May 2018 and the project was completed for September 2019. An incredible team of local tradesmen worked tirelessly to deliver Mrs Sandys’ vision for our luxury 5* haven on the Lake, Holmewell House. Inspired by sister property Dar Moulouya, Marrakech, Holmewell is flooded with light and bursting with colour, whilst simultaneously enjoying elegant details inspired by the famous Silverholme Manor.

With dramatic viewpoints dotted around the property inside and out, the open-plan kitchen/dining area features ceiling-high sliding doors which open right out to the lake-facing patio which leads down to the idyllic garden and private jetty.

With 5 superking-size bedrooms each with their own private ensuite and unique theme, this is the perfect choice for a family experience or some friends looking for something different in the fairy-tale Estate, far from the rest. The property is spacious yet filled with life and zest with a nod to its historical countryside routes; with each day in this home, you will notice something new.

The breath-taking Master bedroom has its own private balcony opening up to the lake and rolling hills beyond. This is the perfect spot to watch the world go by from your own special place of tranquillity and relaxation with a cup of coffee and a good book.
