LAKE WINDERMERE LODGE

A designer lakeside retreat, guaranteed to get you excited for the colder months ahead

w2With September coming to an end, there’s that all-familiar autumn chill in the air – and it has longing for ‘hygge’ hang-outs and cosy places to lay our heads as the dark nights roll in.

Lake Windermere Lodge is a pretty wow space; a contemporary build that can sleep 10 guests, designed with a Scandi state of mind. The decor is heavenly – Lakeland stone, floor-to-ceiling glass, oak pillars and modern light fixtures and furnishings – a bit like a designer ski chalet.

It’s on the eastern bank of the lake, a few minutes’ drive from the town of Bowness, where you’ll find a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. Access the lake via the pretty boathouse – take the private jetty out for a spin, or head out for a spot of fishing. Inside highlights include a breathtaking Lake Room, with bi-fold glass doors opening out on to the outdoor terrace (a dab spot decked out with a BBQ area and chic seating), complete with comfy sofas, crackling fireplaces and flat screen TVs. Theres a Snug Room and a Cinema Room too, with sumptuous seating areas, a 65-inch TV screen and audio surround speakers, a library and more.

w3The open-plan living room dominates the ground floor, comprising a large dining area with a gorgeous oak dining table (it seats 12), a state-of-the-art kitchen and a family room with lovely armchairs and a wood-burner (a great place to relax after a long walk).

Upstairs is home to five en-suite bedrooms, all with super kingsize beds, freestanding tubs and dreamy lake views. If you’re lucky enough to nab the master suite, you can take advantage of some snazzy extras; things like walk-in wardrobes, a separate living area with sofas, steps out to a mezzanine chill-out area with bean bags and a walk-in drench shower room.

At the front of the house there are electric gates which shield the house from the road and you’re free to stroll about the property’s landscaped gardens (there’s over an acre to explore), including a large lawn to the rear which gently leads out to the shore of Lake Windermere.
