Originally built in the 16th century, Holeslack Farmhouse is a Grade II listed building located within the estate of Sizergh Castle. It still retains many of its original and unique features including a spiral staircase and 17th century oak cupboards. With enough space for eight people, it's ideal for families and groups.
The ground floor of Holeslack features a large farmhouse kitchen with wood burning stove, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven and microwave. There's also a dining room and a lounge with multi-fuel stove and TV.
Upstairs on the first floor are four bedrooms (two doubles and two twins) and two bathrooms, each with a shower over the bath.
The farmhouse itself has a large garden and distant views, but it's the grounds of the estate and the 1600 acres of limestone countryside which really cater for walkers and nature lovers.
Parking for three cars is provided at the end of the track leading to the farmhouse.
Oil central heating is included.
A washing machine is located in the adjoining outhouse.
All profit from National Trust accommodation supports conservation projects in the local area.
There are numerous walking routes in and around the estate and they offer panoramic views of Morecambe Bay and the Lakeland fells. The popular walk along Scout Scar is also very much worth giving a go.
Windermere is only 15 minutes drive away while the market town of Kendal can be reached in only ten minutes.
Short breaks are available.
