Little Orchard is a superb detached Lakeland property set in the heart
of this picturesque hamlet, yet benefits from a secluded position
within its beautiful grounds to maximise the benefits of the stunning
and far reaching views.
Situated in the Lyth Valley, which was recently featured in Lonely
Planet's Beautiful World Book, which showcases some of the most
beautiful places from around the globe, Little Orchard really is in a
most beautiful part of the Lake District.
The property enjoys mostly upside-down accommodation so the living
rooms gaze out over the panoramic views and the large windows flood the
interior with light. The interior is also warmed by a traditional
wood-burning stove, furnished for relaxation and finished with true
country flair, creating a sociable retreat in this sublime setting.
Nestling within the pretty hamlet of Crosthwaite, found only a short
drive from Bowness-on-Windermere, circumscribed by green and luscious
countryside. Equipped with four bedrooms, 3 king-size and one double,
two of the king size enjoy their own en-suite facility and a third
bathroom and separate cloakroom / 4th WC / wash basin so no queuing!
The living areas are quirky and flooded with light, the warming living
room, complete with wood-burner and a view to die open to the dining
room plus separate kitchen / breakfast room. Outside the delightful
patio garden provides the ideal spot for morning coffee, or a glass or
two before dinner! You are surrounded by fabulous walking territory and
only 500 yards away from an excellent pub / restaurant, The Punch Bowl
Inn, and never too far from the stunning shores of Lake Windermere.
