Please note that from April to October we only accept full week bookings. Weekend breaks are available in the winter months.

A large and luxuriously equipped villa commanding a simply stunning vista across Lake Windermere to the fells, with views reaching from the Old Man of Coniston, past Scafell and the Langdales to a glimpse of Helvellyn.

This holiday house on Lake Windermere in the Lake District has its own piece of lake shore and jetty accessible by a private path. A fantastic location for friends and family, for holidays or for getting together to mark a special occasion.

North Highfield has everything thought of for the multi-generational holiday. A library with a thousand books for peace and quiet and contemplation of the views, an elegant dining table to celebrate at - even a grand piano. There's an extensively equipped kitchen with everything required for cooks to relish catering for the group, and a separate breakfast room for informal meals. Children are well catered for too, with equipment including toys, cots, high chairs and games.

Many of the bedrooms are en suite, and some contain zip link beds which can be configured as superkings or twins for flexibility depending on your group requirements.

The beautiful large garden is asking to be played in, with play equipment and outdoor games too. And it's somewhere for the dogs to chase the rabbits. A balcony provides the perfect place for fell-watching sundowners.

And above all the location is stunning - beautiful views, easy access to watersports on Lake Windermere and in a great position for accessing other parts of the Lake District. Keen walkers are spoilt for choice, as are artists and those who just want to relax and soak up the unique atmosphere of the Lakes. Wonderful holiday memories start here.
