Description

The Laburnums really has been furnished to an excellent standard, and sits in the quiet, charming Cumbrian village of Askham, with Ullswater just a short drive away. The semi-detached house has been thoughtfully designed, from the large welcoming entrance hall with original 19th century staircase, to the cosy living room with wood burner, and large open plan kitchen/dining room no expense has been spared to provide a luxury retreat to escape and enjoy your holiday in. The large, private, south-facing enclosed garden, with patio and barbecue area makes the ideal spot to gather with the family to enjoy an al fresco supper as the sun sets. The attractive village of Askham is centred around two village greens and has a well-stocked shop/off licence which is open seven days a week and two pubs, all within walking distance of the property. In the summer families can enjoy the outdoor heated swimming pool in the village. Not only does it have a 20 metre pool staffed by lifeguards but there is also a paddling pool, refreshments kiosk and picnicking area. This location offers easy access to the Lake District through Ullswater and Haweswater, or for the more adventurous to walk on the Helton Fells, enjoy water sports on Ullswater, or explore the beautiful Eden Valley. Ullswater can be reached by foot, 3 miles over the fells, and once there you can enjoy a scenic walk around the lake or take a trip on one of the cruisers which set sale from Glenridding and Pooley Bridge. There is also Lowther Birds of Prey Centre and Lowther Castle and Gardens, just a few minutes drive from the house. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

About the local area

Ullswater is the Lake District's second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.

Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.

Many of the Lake District's many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.

Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.
