Find out everything you need about Wansfell View at Limefitt Park, Lake District and whether this holiday rental is right for you.
Set in a holiday park just three miles from Lake Windermere and under a mile from the village of Troutbeck this three-bedroomed lodge sleeps six and welcomes up to two pets.
As the name implies it has unsurpassed views of the Lake District’s highland plateau of Wansfell Peak from its private position at the end of a cul-de-sac. The accommodation is all on one level with four steps up to the cabin itself.
Double aspect glass doors lead out onto a wide deck which is equipped for alfresco dining and a hot tub where you can admire the views from the depths of a million bubbles.
If you are looking for a holiday that is going to suit the whole family in the Lake District, Wansfell View is the lodge for you. Here from its quiet location you can enjoy the wide-open spaces without leaving the comfort of your cabin.
The spacious accommodation sleeps six in the three bedrooms, two with TVs and the master with an en suite and dressing room. The open plan kitchen is well-equipped and incorporates a dining area and sofas.
The double-aspect has sliding doors leading out onto a generous decking that comes with a secluded hot tub and a BBQ for cook-outs under the open skies.
You are going to find yourself in a holiday park that has it all, from a children’s play area and games room to an expansive field to exercise your fur babies, all with the fells as a backdrop. You won’t have to walk far to sample real local ales and Cumbrian meals because the park has a pub, as well as a shop.
See the Lake District from a different angle by booking a ride out with Lakeland Pony Treks that are situated on the edge of the holiday park. You are asked to wear stout shoes and trousers, and the hard hats are provided. Your pups won’t be able to join you on this, so make sure that another family member stays behind to keep them company.
Take a walk to Troutbeck, one of the prettiest villages in the Lake District. It is only going to take you 20 minutes and you can take your four-legged family members along too because the Queen’s Head and Mortal Man are just two pubs that welcome dogs. Before making it back you can sit in one of the beer gardens and look across the Troutbeck Valley.
If you are feeling adventurous, take the five-mile drive to Aira Force, the most famous of the Lake District waterfalls, that falls 70ft into a pool below. Here you and your hounds can explore the landscaped Victorian park and arboretum and for Rovers who love rock rambling, there’s plenty of them to scramble across.
Wansfell View’s quiet location and family-friendly facilities means who won’t have to venture too far afield to have the quintessential Lake District experience. There are walks that start right outside your door and when all you want to do is relax there is the hot tub on the decking with views over to the Wansfell Peak.
The cabin is nestled in nature and the comfortable accommodation provides plenty of space for a family or group of six. The main bedroom is king-sized and has its own ensuite and even a dressing room where Mum can apply her make-up before the trip down to the on-site pub.
There is no fear of Fido nor your two-legged children getting under your feet because just up from the cabin there is a large open play area for the kids and a field for dogs to run with wild abandon. On rainy days there is always something on at the games centre too and it is almost guaranteed that NBFs, both four-legged and otherwise, will be made on this holiday to remember.
If you are looking for a holiday that facilitates your fun-loving family as well as your fur babies then a time away at Wansfell View is certainly for you.
