BROOMRIGGS 5: Sawrey
Broomriggs apartments form part of a stunning conversion of a quintessential English country estate house that dates back to the turn of the century.
The House, approached by a long sweeping driveway bordered by Rhododendrons is set in an elevated position overlooking Esthwaite Water. Each of the apartments has magnificent views of both the Lake and the much sought after surrounding mountain scenery incorporating The Langdales, Coniston and Wetherlam ranges.
Private lake frontage and rowing boats are available for visitors use as well as approximately 40 acres of gardens and woodlands. There is also a children’s play area with swings and outside table tennis.
Broomriggs 5 is a lovely 2 bedroomed ground floor apartment sleeping 4 which has benefited from a great deal of investment in 2011/12 by the new owners who have re-carpeted, upgraded the lighting, added solid oak contemporary furniture throughout and replaced the kitchen and bathroom - creating a very comfortable apartment in this fantastic location.
This ground floor property has a large open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area which has designed to make the most of the fantastic mountain views. There is a flatscreen T.V. with Sky Freeview and DVD and Ninentdo comfortable settee and armchairs. There is wifi internet access not only in the apartment but also available in the gardens. The newly fitted kitchen is well equipped with built in electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge and freezer.
There are two pretty bedrooms one very large king sized to the front and twin bedroom to the rear.The large, recently upgaraded bathroom has bath with shower over, basin, wc and heated towel rail .
Outside we are sure guests will not only be captivated by the views but will also enjoy the beauty of the landscaped gardens and surrounding woodlands

Comment: We found our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. The grounds are beautifully kept and ideal for young families as they provide a range of facilities for children and adults alike.
We enjoyed an afternoon on the lake with the free rowing boats, trips to nearby Hawkshead and Coniston as well as the many walks in the area with Grisedale Forest being a favourite with the kids.

Comment: Brilliant week with the family. We have two boys aged 11 and 4 and they loved it.
1. take one of the boats owned by the flats and row around Esthwaite - very beautiful, very calm, and very relaxing (unless you are the one who is rowing!
2. Go for a walk through the wood at the back of broomrigs, over a wall and and cross a field to Moss eccles tarn. Again beautiful and peaceful. You can take the path down to sawrey (we went for lunch at sawrey house) and then walk back past the playground - up to the wood and back down to the flats. Allow a couple of hours (more for lunch). its a abit of a hike but well worth it.
3 preditator experience - pre book through the internet or ring Dee on 07733366748- we played with snakes and spiders and then took a hawk for a walk. The boys were spellbound
Brilliant holiday - will be back (again) next year!
