The property

Tucked away in the heart of the sought-after town of Windermere rests this towering four-storey holiday home, Riggbank.

Set a stone's throw away from both Lake Windermere and the Lake District National Park, Riggbank is perfectly positioned for both families and friends alike looking to explore this marvellous part of the country.

Stepping over the threshold, a handy hallway space greets you upon arrival, providing a convenient storage area to house your muddy boots and walking gear away from the main living areas.

Venturing further inside, you'll be delighted by the beautifully-appointed open-plan living/dining space, boasting a number of sumptuous sofas gathered alongside a warming woodburning stove, inviting you to put your feet up and enjoy a moment of peace after an action-packed day.

Continuing through, the charming galley-style kitchen homes all of the essential amenities required to rustle up a heart-warming meal for the group, including a handy dishwasher so there's no time wasted doing the washing up!

Serve up your culinary delights at the grand dining table that takes centre stage in the sociable space, gathering your loved ones around to indulge in some overdue quality time together.

In the warmer months, take your dining experience outdoors with a spot of alfresco dining on the patio, toasting a glass of fizz to an unforgettable holiday as you soak in the hot tub and enjoy the peaceful setting whilst the kids keep themselves entertained with a gaming marathon on the PS4 Pro in the cosy snug.

As the day draws to a close, prepare for bed with a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the contemporary family bathroom, or if you'd prefer, jump in the shower to wash away the day with a quick rinse.

Retire to one of the four fabulously decorated bedrooms to rest your head, with the choice between the master bedroom, boasting a sumptuous king-size bed, tucked away on the lower-ground-floor, a twin and a double set on the first-floor, and a snug double room, resting under the intimate setting of the sloped ceiling on the second-floor.

The two double room benefit from access to their own en-suites, one of which boasts an elegant freestanding bath, so you can end each day in style with a luxurious soak.

On the lower-ground-floor of the property is a modern shower room perfect for larger groups!

Completing the property you will find the snug, complete with comfy seating, Smart TV and a PS4 Pro for an evening of gaming entertainment.

Head out of the door and take the short stroll into the heart of Windermere, where you'll be spoilt for choice with the selection of eateries on offer, including quaint cafes and traditional country pubs serving fresh locally sourced produce, or head to the twin town of Bowness where you'll find a larger range of choice, along with a vibrant collection of bars, promising a memorable night on the town.

Thrill seekers will be delighted with a visit to Treetop Lake District, an exciting adventure course amongst the woodland, or if that's not your thing, explore the fascinating exhibitions on display at the world-renowned The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction.

The charming market town of Kendal is within easy reach, boasting an array of high-street and independent shops, perfect for picking up a keepsake, along with a number of attractions worth visiting, including the fascinating displays of local history at Kendal Museum and the 14th century medieval fortress of Sizergh Castle.

Explore the delights of The Lake District with a stay at Riggbank.
