Windermere Sanctuary North of England

Escape to luxury in the Lakes

Escape to the serenity of Windermere Sanctuary in The Lake District, where Edwardian elegance provides the canvas for contemporary comforts. This recently renovated property sits in two acres of mature grounds and you can pause at every window to savour views of the lakes and fells. Historical features abound, from oak panelling to original fireplaces, while the modern overlay includes a luxury kitchen, new bathrooms and voice-activated blinds and lighting.

Feel soothed in every room by muted tones that reflect the Lakeland views. If the Cumbrian mists roll in, retire to the cinema for a movie and sink into your electric leather recliner as you order the voice-activated curtains to close. When the sun comes out, step outside, where the adults can gather on the huge patio while the children discover the zipwire, tree swing and treehouse. More views await you from the stunning bedrooms, and the ensuite bathrooms and wet rooms leave you feeling that you have had a spa experience.

You’re here for the lakes of course, and The Sanctuary is perfectly situated for Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside and many more of the Lake District's popular destinations. When your exploring is done, return to enjoy the views from Windermere Sanctuary.
