The Stable Cottage (sleeps 5) or the Coach House (sleeps 10) are the perfect base for unwinding, relaxing or engaging in different activities here in the Lake District.
There is a vast choice of activities to do as a family in the South Lakes; whether you wish to have a relaxed holiday or would like to go for more adventurous options, there is something for everyone!
Rydal Sculpture Trail - We have a picnic area in our woodlands behind our teashop where you can enjoy a coffee under the trees whilst the children explore the textile tree houses and their inhabitants. A short stroll further along the beck and through the woodland paths allows you to discover many more textile sculptures and our fantastic collection of moss-covered stumps.
Rydal Mount, the home of William Wordsworth, is only a 2-minute walk. You can access as a resident a 10% discount on all the activities and tours Rydal Mount offers.
Rydal Water is only a short walk away, and one of the Lake District’s pretties places with fantastic scenery, surrounded by fells as the rocky Loughrigg Fell. This is an excellent walk if you are bringing your dog.
You can continue to the lovely village of Grasmere and stop at Grasmere Gingerbread Shop, one of their delicacies, invented by the Victorian cook Sarah Nelson in 1854.
A vast range of outdoor adventure activities is available around Ambleside and Windermere Lake, ranging from abseiling and climbing to bushcraft and sailing.
Head to the Water Head Pier in Ambleside, 2.7 miles from which you can take a ferry to Bowness, Lakeside pier, Wray Castle and Brockhole.
