This luxurious lakeside lodge benefits from a stunning architecturally designed extension incorporating large areas of glass allowing you to enjoy the panoramic views of the lake, Barton Fell and Haling Fell from numerous levels within the house. To take full advantage of lakeside living, the house has its own private shore line and a small jetty at the end of the lawn, this is a wonderfully unique property.

In the hamlet of Watermillock you will discover 2 lovely pubs including The Rampsbeck Hotel and the Brackenrigg Inn, both of which serve excellent food. Within 3 miles you will also find a convenience store and post office in the village of Pooley Bridge.
