The upside-down accommodation here at Abbotsgarth Heights ensures best advantage can be had of the fine views of the Lake and fells from the first floor. Enter into a spacious hallway off from which sits a useful utility with washer/dryer and plenty of space for storing all of your walking equipment. The master bedroom is a light, bright space with a kingsize bed, co-ordinating soft furnishings, a colour TV, plenty of storage space and a modern en-suite shower with a cubicle basin and WC. Across the hall lies another stylish bedroom, with a superking bed (If you require the room set up as a twin please ask at the time of booking) co-ordinated furnishings with ample storage space and a colour TV. A separate, stylish bathroom with shower over the bath, basin and WC.


The main living and dining areas are on the first floor, wrapping around a central staircase. The kitchen is well fitted with a super range of appliances, plenty of work space and us well equipped (so you’ll find everything you need to properly self cater) The dining area is just the spot to enjoy a special dinner together and after a hearty meal, you can retire to either the cosy snug/quiet room with TV and games console or to the main lounge with Juliette balcony giving way to more of that fantastic view.


The private and sheltered patio with furniture is the perfect place to sit in the sunshine (when our typical Lakeland weather will allow) and relax, read your favourite book or listen to your holiday soundtrack.

Private off-road parking is available for two cars.

Location & Nearby


Perfectly placed within a short stroll of the popular resorts of both Windermere and Bowness, yet in absolute peace and quiet. Abbotsgarth Heights sits in a delightfully private cul-de-sac at the midway point between both towns. Slightly elevated above the road, commanding views of the surrounding fells and, when the leaves fall, Lake Windemere can be seen from the first floor.

Immaculately presented, the owners have a very keen eye for detail evidenced by sumptuous soft furnishings with splashes of colour against a neutral palette, both eye-catching and modern. A lounge and a quiet room/snug, both with colour TVs, ensure plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The property offers a fantastic base from where to explore the Lakes. Walks are plentiful and cater for hikers of all ages and abilities; from a gentle stroll up Orrest Head (the first of Alfred Wainwright’s inspirational walks) to the more challenging slopes of Wansfell. Whether you’re two couples or a smaller family, we’re certain you’ll have a wonderful break here at Abbotsgarth Heights, whatever time of year you choose to visit.

A lovely place to stay, tucked out of the way, that had eveything that we needed. Never slept so well on holiday! Ideal location if you just want to take it easy or go out and about.

Beautiful barn conversion in the heart of the lakes. Comfy beds, beautiful surroundings, hikes from the doorstep and Rydal water and great pub a short (if steep) wee walk away. Could only be improved with a few books and bit of info on the area and some games for rainy days. We had a wonderful relaxing time here, would love to go back some day.
