Why we love it!

" We Love Beechwood for its central location, just a stone’s throw away from the bars and restaurants in central Windermere. Our fave café (Homeground) is just a 2-minute stroll away, where we love lazy brunches & post walk coffees. It even has a secret path from the garden that leads right to the Lake. "

Relax, Eat, Retreat

After a long day exploring, kick off your boots in the spacious porch and prepare to enter the impressive living room. Complete with a statement stone fireplace and open fire, this cosy space will have you retreating indoors to warm up and relax over boardgames and your favourite tipple.

Perfect for entertaining, the space opens into a beautiful garden room. Heavy with 1920’s charm, wooden beams arch across the ceilings alongside colonial windows and doors that lead straight out onto the patio and garden, why not host a feast and wow the whole family?

‘The Snug’ provides a second living area complete with a fire, garden views, big comfy sofas, smart TV and PS4. This room provides an ideal place to retreat to and snuggle up under blankets after a long day exploring, or a separate lounge for any children in the group to enjoy a movie night.

At the heart of the home lies the kitchen; light and impeccably finished, this room enables your culinary juices to flow. Cook to your hearts content in this stunning room complete with integrated appliances including, range-style oven, double dishwasher and breakfast island. Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast as the sun beams in through the windows or indulge in an afternoon cocktail and raise a glass to the fantastic holiday that awaits you.

Sweet Slumber

With five impressive bedrooms, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Set along an elegant stairway with garden views, sprawling out toward the woodland beyond, this property exudes peaceful tranquillity hidden amongst the trees.

Enter the super-king bedroom, complete with a stunning en-suite bathroom. With large, fitted wardrobes, this room encompasses Lakeland decadence. Make yourself at home at the wooden desk and enjoy stunning views across the lawn and into the woodland beyond whilst journaling your inspirations from the day’s adventures.

Travel down the landing to the first of three king bedrooms. With private garden views, enjoy coffee in bed whilst the birds swoop in and out of the wisteria outside. This cosy space shares a family bathroom with its neighbouring twin bedroom. Complete with a decorative fireplace and discreet storage, the windows open to the bows of the imposing Beech tree, rustling on the breeze, bringing the outside in.

The final upstairs bedroom is drenched in sunlight, with a king-sized bed truly fit for a king and a bathroom to match. Here, you’ll find the perfect place to rest-up at the end of a long day or enjoy a soak with a glass of fizz in the stunning roll top bath.

The final bedroom lies on the ground floor, with convenient access to the kitchen for midnight snacks and a well-placed WC in the hallway, this room is perfect for any individuals with limited mobility or tendency for late nights.

Fresh Air

The garden wraps around the driveway and leads to a substantial lawn. Surrounded by trees, entirely private and enclosed, roam free amongst the native plants and wildlife. With a variety of azaleas and rhododendrons, you’ll find something in bloom during every season. Spring bulbs add seasonal colour, and wisteria creeps across the stone walls, adding to the buildings charm.

Spend long summer days watching the children enjoy the expansive lawn, perfect for ball games and nature trails, or laughing joyously on the wooden swing hanging picturesquely from the branches above. Come evening time, enjoy a star lit sky and a glass of Prosecco from the comfort of the newly installed hot tub.

The beauty of Beechwood is the feeling of total isolation, despite its very central location. Discreetly hidden and modest, it is the perfect place to escape to and enjoy life’s luxuries.

Out & About

Just a short stroll away, the busy Lakeland village of Windermere hosts several popular cafes and restaurants plus all amenities. Enjoy a flat white and a cinnamon bun from local-favourite Homeground Kitchen. Explore a little further and find yourself in Bowness, abundant with local attractions, boat rides and the famous World of Beatrix Potter.

Travel via bus to iconic Lake District towns; Ambleside, Hawkshead, Grasmere and beyond to Keswick.

Or why not venture the lake via ferry, and visit Wray Castle and Claife Heights, or rent a boat and explore the boat under your own steam before heading home to the warmth and comfort of Beechwood.
