Grass Ings - Three Bedroom House, Sleeps 6

Located in: Skelwith »
At the very heart of the Lake District lie the spectacular Langdale
Valleys; Great Langdale and Little Langdale. In this stunning landscape
of high mountains, rolling meadows, cascading waterfalls and babbling
becks, Grass Ings stands in a prominent position overlooking the River
Brathay, on the edge of the village of Skelwith Bridge.

New to the market; this superb, detached, residence has been developed
by the current owners to create a high quality retreat for family and
friends offering quality accommodation in a glorious setting and with
beautiful views from nearly every window, excellent social space
whatever the occasion, quality furnishings, luxury bathrooms and
generous outdoor space with a choice of three patios.

With a choice of walks available direct from the door, a gentle stroll
into the village for a pint at the Talbot Bar, dinner at the Skelwith
Bridge Hotel or amazing homemade cakes on the side of the river at the
famous Chesters, and just a few minutes drive from the acclaimed
Drunken Duck Inn or the Michelin Star restaurant at Forestside, Grass
Ings offers an excellent base from which to explore and discover some
of the best scenery and food and drink in the British Isles whilst
being within easy reach of the bustling Lakeland villages of Ambleside,
Grasmere or Keswick, with its award winning twice weekly market.

Accommodation In Detail

From pulling up on the driveway there is a real sense of anticipation
to see what lies within the house and as you open the front door there
is a view straight down the hallway to the rear porch. So from the very
moment you enter the house the beautiful views become the focal point
of your stay.

The welcoming, dual aspect lounge is tastefully furnished with
comfortable sofas arranged around the feature fireplace with its cosy
log burning stove and Smart TV. Relax and enjoy the view across the
valley from every seat or take advantage of the large window seat to
soak in the stunning scenery. The spacious, social kitchen is the real
heart of the home with the large family dinning table, in front of the
picture window, the idea place for social and relaxing dinners with
family and friends. The well appointed kitchen has views across
Loughrigg Fell and is equipped with an electric range cooker with five
ring electric hob and double oven, two under counter fridges,
dishwasher, microwave and Nespresso Coffee machine and to the side the
pantry or “Happy Cupboard” is used as the serving point for drinks to
which the owners have thoughtfully added an ice machine. The large
porch at the rear of the house offers beautiful views across the valley
and the river and is a lovely spot to relax with a good book. From here
patio doors open onto the first of three patios; this one known as the
“Gin and Fizz” patio! The ground floor accommodation is complemented by
a spacious cloak room with WC. On the lower ground floor the boot room
is ideal when returning after a muddy walk or with mountain bikes and
is equipped with drying facilities, sink, washing machine, tumble drier
and offers plenty of space for boots, coats and outdoor gear and is
also home to the fridge/freezer.

Choose from one of three boutique bedrooms. The superb master suite
offers views across the river, a comfortable king size bed, that is a
welcome retreat at the end of the day, and a luxurious shower room with
walk in shower, basin and WC. The two further bedrooms are presented
with a king size and double bed respectively and are complemented by a
high-quality family bathroom with feature bath, shower cubicle or a
shower room with walk in shower and both with basin and WC.

Back outside and the completely private south facing garden sits to the
rear of the house and offers a choice of three seating areas; the
drinks patio, the sun terrace and in the centre of the garden a large
dinning patio with landscaped borders of shrubs and to the side the
lawn slopes down to the neighbouring meadow. The large drive offers
ample parking for three cars.


Away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traps, Skelwith Bridge is a
great location for a Lake District cottage holiday. Between vibrant
Ambleside village, Lake Windermere and the breathtaking Langdale
Valley, guests here are free to enjoy all of Lake District life.

Some of the most famous Lake District walks begin on your doorstep;
including challenging routes in the Langdale Pikes, Loughrigg and the
tarn, or peaceful strolls on the shores of nearby Elterwater.
If you'd prefer a leisurely holiday, spend your days strolling gently
in the Langdale Valley and sampling the excellent country pubs in the
area. Find classy shopping in Ambleside, and enjoy an elegant lake
cruise on Lake Windermere - all within very easy reach.

Your location just off the A593 makes exploring the wider reaches of
the National Park a breeze. For example; follow the road back to
Ambleside and the shores of Lake Windermere, then north to Rydal Water
and Grasmere, or follow the A593 south to picturesque Coniston.
