For couples seeking a romantic retreat or families who wish to indulge themselves with a well earned break, living in the lap of luxury, then Calthwaite Hall West Wing ticks all the boxes. This Grade II listed building was the principal home on the Brackenburgh Estate and in the ownership of one family until 2010, when the current owner bought it, restoring it to its former glory. The current owners live in the main hall and have converted the West Wing into a luxurious self catering apartment, with spacious rooms that retain all the original character of the period (1837), including original fireplaces and luxuriously furnished. All rooms overlook the grounds and each bedroom has a different theme, the master bedroom with a magnificent four poster bed. There are peacocks, a pond with ducks and swans, a secret garden and a paddock and equestrian school for guests with their own horse. We have squeezed this wonderful property to show in our Ullswater area, as it is only a 15 mile scenic drive to Ullswater and all it has to offer, and we felt with a property of this quality it would be worth the drive, also ideal to visit the nearby Eden Valley and up to the Scottish Borders, there is a local pub in the village which serves bar meals. Local attractions include Center Parcs and Rheged Visitor Centre. Comments from the Visitors Book
