Laurel is the epitome of a rural retreat. Surrounded by rolling countryside and heavy with Cumbrian charm, this luxurious apartment combines high end design with the quaint appeal of a traditional Lakeland farmhouse.

Nestled in a quiet corner of the countryside, with the incredible backdrop of the Kentmere Valley, could this be the perfect base for your Lake District adventure?

The apartment is located at the end of a private drive that snakes along the edge of the River Kent and the famous Dales Way. The recently renovated former farmhouse breathes tranquillity whilst providing all the mod-cons of a luxury hotel. With two convenient parking spaces right outside, simply pull up, step through the garden gate, and make your way to your lovely hideaway.

Relax, Eat, Retreat

Enter through the refurbished stone porch, reminiscent of the former farmhouse and cast your eyes over the idyllic open plan living/dining area. The traditional log burner offers a welcome treat after cold days out exploring. Relax on the cosy corner sofa and embrace the views that stretch out from the French Doors, across the garden and to the fields beyond. The newly installed kitchen and breakfast island offer the perfect environment for casual dining and entertaining. Why not take dinner alfresco and make the most of the long summer evenings?

Sweet Slumber

Oozing with luxurious Scandi-design, Laurel magically combines humble Lakeland inspirations with the tones and textures of a Nordic retreat. The first bedroom boasts a stunning double bed complete with a rattan headboard and botanical prints above.  Simplicity is key in the creation of Laurel, stripped back furnishings, minimalist décor and a colour palette inspired by the natural environment. The second bedroom echo’s the first, with a locally made, Herdy mattress and natural fibres. It is impossible not to relax here.

The bathrooms at Laurel mirror the serene spaciousness of the bedrooms. Refresh in the double-width, walk-in showers or soak up the ambience in the free-standing bath. A stay at Laurel is about taking your time and enjoying those peaceful moments.

Fresh Air

The hypnotic views of Lakeland countryside are inescapable at Laurel. Bring the outdoors in, through the French Doors and lounge on the soft velvet sofa with the sun on your face. Make the most of a Lake District summer and bathe in light on the lawn to the sound of the sheep and the singing birds.

Could this be the mindful retreat you’ve been looking for?

Location: A little bit about Staveley

Staveley is an iconic little village located at the gateway to the Lake District. Swimming in culture and Lakeland charm, this hidden gem is home to some of the best businesses Cumbria has to offer. A self-proclaimed ‘village within a village’, Mill Yard combines businesses of both industrial and retail to create a unique visitor experience. Fill up on delicious local ale at the Hawkshead Brewery, whilst basking in the sunshine like a pickled lizard. Or eat your weight in the best sourdough the South Lakes has to offer at More? Bakery – you’ll notice the unmistakable smell of warm bread floating on the air whilst sipping your pre-adventure flat white. Rent a bike from Wheelbase before whizzing off along the quiet country lanes. Or indulge in a hearty breakfast at Wilfs’ Cafe before strapping on your boots and setting off into the Kentmere valley. Synonymous with isolation, tranquillity and unadulterated views, the mountains surrounding Staveley offer perfect hikes for people of all abilities without having to venture far into the hustle and bustle of the Lake District. Favoured by locals, the village of Staveley is a must visit for anyone seeking adventure, creativity, and beauty.
