RURAL LOCATION IN PRETTY WITHERSLACK VILLAGE, IDEALLY SITUATED FOR THE LAKE DISTRICT

Witherslack House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 7 (11). 4 bedroom house. Traditional Lake District Country House available for rent on self catering basis. Set in 2,000 acres of ancient woodland on a country estate in Witherslack. Our treasured late Georgian home is designed for an ordinary family (or two) who like to stay in an extraordinary setting in a quirky old house. Perfectly located for the Lake District.

Imagine yourself eating breakfast on the terrace while the children and dogs play happily on the lawn. Or chasing rare butterflies through secret, wild and sculpted gardens. Or putting on your boots and stomping off for a Sunday morning walk up Whitbarrow Scar. Then relaxing with family songs around the piano, with a book in front of a real fire, or with some family games in the drawing room of this characterful house. And then finally coming together for dinner like so many generations have before. Our rural family home is a well loved and comfortable escape. It is close to The Lakes, with stunning views over Arnside and Morecambe Bay and enjoying the amenities of nearby Witherslack village. Accommodation is in 3 vast bedrooms and one large single. There is ample on site parking.

Perfect!

We booked Halecat House as the venue for a surprise birthday celebration for my Mum's 50th, and it couldn't have been a more perfect setting. Despite the size and grandness of the house, it felt warm and cosy (helped by the lovely open fires) and we felt right at home. All of the rooms are spacious and well proportioned meaning we could all sit in the same room comfortably, which as a family of 11 was really appreciated.

The bedrooms are all huge and beautifully decorated, and there were plenty of bathrooms for us all. There was always hot water and heating available. The kitchen was well stocked with pans/utensils/cutlery etc.; the only minor issue was a bit of confusion using the oven, but we cracked it by the final day!

The location was great, within a 20 minute drive to Lake Windermere and easily accessible from the M6. We had a meal at the local pub, the Derby Arms, which did excellent food - a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive away.

Steph was fantastic in helping us organise the weekend - always quick to reply to emails with lots of useful information.

The garden is big and great for playing in, even for the children in our 20s and 30s... A great game of Night Frisbee was had! The views over the garden to the fells and estuary are also fantastic, and we were treated to a fireworks display in the distance one night from the comfort of the living room.

It was brilliant to be surrounded by all the history and grandeur of the house, but at the same time to feel so relaxed and at home. We're already talking about booking again! Thank you!
