    The Oaks sleeping up to 25 guests

    This magnificent detached country house, built in 1862 is set in a most enviable position amongst beautiful woodlands on High Lindeth Fell just a mile from Bowness-on-Windermere. The country house has been refurbished to a very high standard and is set in its own grounds with beautiful southerly and westerly views of the Lakeland fells. The grounds afford all visitors peace and relaxation, with mature trees, firs, bracken and the surrounding fells all on display. This is a great place for family and friends to get away from it all, enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the very special qualities of this premier holiday home.
    The Oaks was completely renovated in 2017, with no expense spared in re-creating the past glories of this exceptional imposing property. There are modern installations throughout and a wonderful blend of the original features, such as the beautiful main staircase, the mullioned windows and the old pantry, seamlessly integrated with more modern and contemporary styling. A well thought out layout provides something for everyone, a main leisure suite offers a great place to relax and unwind with a lovely seating area boasting pleasant views and a fabulous sauna to soak away the aches and pains. Outside, the property has a private elevated patio area with two hot tubs that provide the perfect location to sit, relax and take in the beautiful surroundings. Featuring a main living room with cosy seating areas, a stylish drawing room with comfortable window seats, a warm wood-burning stove and the clever use of connecting doors that offer flexibility to use both rooms together. The spacious dining room overlooks a flat lawned area with captivating views out across the grounds and rolling hills to the south, with direct links through to the magnificent kitchen. The kitchen boasts a central island, a range of modern contemporary fittings and a pleasing snug area to relax and enjoy a cold drink from the wine cooler. A separate TV lounge provides a great place for the children and smaller groups to break out and provide some peace and quiet. There are two spacious ground floor bedrooms, both with ensuite facilities and one room designed specifically for wheelchair access, making it the perfect choice for anyone with limited mobility. A useful entrance hall with cloakroom, two separate toilets, a pantry, washing and drying room all go together to provide everything a large group will need. Two separate sets of stairs offer access the first floor, where there are ten impeccably designed bedrooms, eight with ensuite facilities and the majority with wonderful views onto the garden and woodland areas. A spacious master bedroom, modern house bathroom and a well laid out family room with sofa bed. Outside, there is a spacious parking area, formal and wild gardens and a lovely lawned area to enjoy a picnic whilst admiring the special surroundings and catching the odd siting of the local wildlife, including the occasional deer. Less than a mile away is the wonderful and charming Windermere Golf Club, a most welcoming club. A short walk takes guests down to the lake ferry where a short 'cruise' gives access to the far shores of Hawkshead, famous Coniston with the magnificent peaks of Wetherlam and the Old Man of Coniston to name but a few, as well as the magical Tarn Hows area. All the facilities of Bowness-on-Windermere are a short drive or a good walk from the Oaks, including a wide range of attractions for all ages, ranging from Peter Rabbit to hand-made chocolate shop and the wonderful walks along the Bowness promenade where the many cruise ships run down the lake to Ambleside and Newby Bridge. Discover picturesque local walks along footpaths bordering the site, including the Dales Way which runs by the Golf Club and Crook and Staveley and for the more adventurous walks across to Cartmel Fell. There is a leisurely family walk directly from the site to the nearby Brant Fell, which provides stunning views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding fells, including the Langdales and Crinkle Crags which offer harder challenges to the more adventurous walkers. The Oaks, a stunning location offering excellent holiday accommodation with everything you could wish for.

    Providing a range of amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes, the twin towns of Bowness and Windermere have an enduring appeal for many visitors to the Lake District.

    " This one was the best…we liked the Oaks because the kitchen facilities were the best we’ve had, the bedrooms were of a very high standard and the location by Lake Windermere was excellent. "

    " A beautiful property with plenty of room for a large group. Multiple living spaces so plenty of room to space out. Multiple ovens and dishwashers really helped when cooking for a large group. Has every appliance you would need for a a self catering holiday. We got some nice weather so could take advantage of the outdoor seating and garden, again plenty of space to play games or relax soaking up the sun. Not that it was an issue but some previous places I have stayed have things like cooking oil/sprays etc but there wasn’t anything like that so just make sure you bring everything you would need. Not sure if that is because of COVID. Also not a lot of toilet roll. Walking into Bowness was only a 10/15 min walk once we found the quickest route. Cross straight over the road at the bottom of the drive. Would definitely stay there again. "

    "We visited he lakes again this year and decided to book The Oaks as so many of the family wanted to come along. The house suited us perfectly. The sauna and hot tubs were utilised every day and with such a central location there was something for all ages within a short walking distance. We had family from 80 years old to 18 months and the house was amazing. The floor plans on the website helped us plan before we arrived and Lorna was so much help. Will look to book again next year!"

    " What a wonderful place! We had very high expectations from the pictures, and it exceeded them! We were a family group of 19 people aged from 18 months to 80, and every single one of us loved the place. Most rooms are en suite so a lot of the kids even had their own which delighted them. It felt like there could have been double our numbers and still not feel in the least bit crowded. All rooms were spotlessly clean and well made up with quality towels and bedding. The kitchen had at least 2 of everything and 3 or 4 giant fridges and dishwashers! There were more than enough of all glasses and crockery not to be waiting on the dishwasher for each meal, and plenty of plastic glasses for outside and the hot tubs, too. The pair of hot tubs were wonderful and having two meant we could designate one to the kids to splash about in while we quietly sipped our bubbles in ours. There were board games in one of the many lounges, but our kids spent most of their time exploring the grounds outside and loving having some freedom while we could keep an eye out from the patio / hot tubs / lounges. We had a wonderful series of birthday meals at the long tables in the conservatory looking out at the view, which was just off the kitchen making things really easy to serve and clear. A point to note, which I believe they are now looking into resolving: The accessible room is marvellous however our 80-year-old birthday girl found the bed just too high to get in and out of during the night herself, luxurious as it was. She’s probably not much more than 5 foot tall and we’ve had the same problem in hotels, but just to be aware to check if they’ve found a resolution, if this might be an issue. My only other piece of advice is to ask for a map of the bedrooms before you go! The house really is huge and I found myself walking in circles trying to make sure I allocated the right children near the right parents in the right rooms before everyone arrived - more stressful than you might think haha! Lorna was our point of contact and couldn’t have been more helpful both before and during our stay. We all have nothing but praise for the place and just can’t wait to find another occasion to return! Thank you Lorna and The Oaks! "

    " Great house for a large family. We have been to the lakes manner times and this house suited us the best! Fabulous kitchen which became the hub of the house, not forgetting the hot tubs, sauna, fabulous views, the lake within walking distance, excellent sound system, movie TVs, loads of sitting room areas and of course the dining table to seat more than 25 people. We will definitely be returning to the lakes in 2020! Thank you Lorna for your hospitality, quick response to questions & humour. See you next year! "
    Chelsea N
    " This place is absolutely amazing! Lots of space for kids to run and explore, waking up and looking out your windows to the views is amazing, so relaxing and peaceful, beds are so comfy had a greats night sleep every night!, the hot tubs are excellent! Only thing I would recommend is maybe insect/wasp repellent as there was lots of wasps in the house I could not fault anything! Would definitely recommend and stay again Kind regards The Newberrys "

    " This place is amazing, the pictures don’t do it justice and the views from the hot tub are amazing! You are undisturbed at the back of the house with a massive garden to enjoy. We were a group of 25 and everyone is raving about it still. If you are a large group it’s perfect, theres many living areas so if you need a quiet moment you’ve got plenty places to pick from. Movie nights there’s enough couches for all. The dining table and the table outside which seats everyone is such a good touch, especially the outside one for the good weather we had. It’s so close to the town, you can walk it if you’re fit enough. Great location, lovely bars and restaurants all around and the house down to the finest detail is perfect! "
    Mrs Newberry
    " Superb facilities and the surroundings wow!. Everything you need for a great relaxing break. "

    " Lovely bedrooms, and very comfortable lounges. Very well equipped kitchen and a great dining room. Large outdoor area, with 2 hot tubs, which were well used after a hard days walking the fells. Very helpful Manager who sorted any problems out. We used an outside caterer on the last night, which was very good, and a very reasonable price. "
    Mrs Parker
    " Hot tubs got lots of use and great views of fields and hills from the patio with plenty of room for children to play and run around. "
    Mrs Boardman
    " Definitely recommend for other large groups . "
    Mrs Roxburgh
    " We had a great weekend and made plenty of use out to the hot tubs and outside area in general as the weather was kind to us! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for something for a large group of people and would definitely go back!! Many thanks Lynn "

    " The Oaks is a beautiful house for a holiday stay. With lovely clean rooms, a huge kitchen central to the house, plenty of lounge areas to relax and hot tubs and sauna for a touch of luxury this accommodation really is special. Despite its massive size, the house is immaculately maintained - with decor that mixes the modern with the traditional. Our family had a fantastic week in honour of my late wife, who booked and organised this trip for us. What a great call she made. Will be definitely looking to book The Oaks again next year should we decide to return to Bowness for another get together. "
    Mrs Mcdermott
    " Location ideal with easy taxi rides th Bowness saving the trouble of trying to park. Hot tubs and sauna an added bonus . Very comfort able for a large group. I would give it 5 stars. "
    Mr Welch
    "We would recommend staying here to anybody and everybody. This was our annual family gathering, 6 Grandparents, 10 Parents and 8 grand children under the age of 4. The house provide plenty of space for us all to enjoy the weekend, with enough space for the children to play, lounge areas to get away from the chaos! and relax. The kitchen is excellent and very well appointed, as our the bedrooms and bathrooms. Our only compliant would be the lack of a plan of the accommodation on the website which makes it difficult to allocate rooms and bed configurations required. Other websites do this and we find it invaluable when deciding if a house is suitable for our purposes before booking. This was overcome by the very helpful on site team who should be complimented for their attention to detail. Also it would be useful; if titled photographs so you can understand which rooms are which."
    Mrs Ferguson
    "We all enjoyed the hot tubs (even in the rain) and sauna. Would definitely return."

Fabulous kitchen and just soooooo much space, plenty of cloakroom facilities downstairs . A thoroughly well thought out house and an ideal way to spend a week celebrating my 60th with family and friends . Definitely on my return list."

    "Fantastic holiday home for large family get togethers and family occasions Furnishings and accommodation are of the highest standard"
    Mrs Wade
    "The standard of accommodation is first class from the bedrooms to the lounges to the wonderful kitchen- even the artwork has been carefully chosen to enhance the rooms. It has a real "wow" factor which begins in the wonderful entrance hall and the dining room is superb. We were a party of 25 ranging in ages from 12 to 82 celebrating a 60th birthday. The house met all our needs having a large number of ensuite rooms and disabled facilities. One of the requirements for our trip was the ability for everyone to sit down together and have a celebratory meal- the dining room was beautiful and has a view to die for. The hot tubs and sauna were very popular and towels were provided for everyone to use. We had snow which made the experience even more magical and on two nights had clear skies which meant we could see hundreds of stars in the sky and not a sound could be heard. Plenty of room for everyone and we would certainly like to visit again!!"

We wish we could have stopped longer. ..."
