Where glazed walls let the light stream into the open-plan living space and create a lovely inviting entrance for the home. From here a staircase leads downstairs to the sleeping quarters and a door to the right opens up to the private and quiet back patio, ideal for alfresco dining in the warmer months.

Snuggle down into the sumptuous sofas of the sitting room for a movie night, whilst the cook brews up some hot chocolate.

Two large windows, complete with eye-catching plantation shutters, capture the natural light and present picturesque views over the grounds and beyond, to the lake.

A good-sized contemporary kitchen awaits to the back of the room, complete with integrated fridge, freezer, washer, oven, hob and microwave along with plenty of storage for pots, china, glassware and pantry necessities. It really is ready to go and has everything you or a guest would need. Views to the rear overlooking the private patio makes the most tranquil place to wash the dishes.

Large grey tiles, adorning both floor and walls, surround the white three-piece suite of the over shower bathtub, sink and WC. Note the handy cabinet space for bathroom accessories and heated towel rail for cosy drying.

Garden and Grounds
The grounds at Merewood Stables provide a Cumbrian oasis, shared by just thirteen other homes, mainly holiday let's, ensuring tranquility from the hustle and bustle.

The carpark is bordered by mature shrubs and trees, and comes alive with colour in the spring. To the side of the collection of houses lies an expansive manicured lawn, perfect for the children to run free or perhaps a game of rounders in the warmer months. Surrounded by nature and tall trees adding to the secluded paradise.

A gardener maintains all of the grounds and communal areas, and the yearly service charge means that everything is taken care of, allowing you to simply enjoy without worry or effort.
Your own patio, comprising paving and gravel, to the rear of the home, is bordered with crisp white rendered walls, creating a place to relax and entertain in privacy. Adorn it with some low maintenance planting to add to the calming nature. The patio continues round to the side and the front, allowing for additional seating space as well as easy access.

After a day walking in the fells, take off muddy boots at the bench to the top of the stairs. Evenings can be spent taking a stroll through the communal areas, quietly observing and admiring the lush greens and peaceful space.

Staying closer to home you will find Brockhole visitor centre has something for everyone with outdoor adventure play area, café and restaurant, crazy gold and the ability to rent out self-drive boats so you can take to the waters of Lake Windermere.

A taxi or bus can take you into the nearby Bowness-on-Windermere where you can spend the evening eating and drinking in the local bars and restaurants.
