About Oakland West

Oakland West sits within the former grand hall of one of Windermere’s first gentleman’s residences; painstakingly resorted and now offering luxury accommodation for 14 in one of the area’s most exclusive locations. Staggering lake and fell views provide the perfect back drop to your Lake District escape.

Entering from the private driveway with parking for up to seven cars, you’re welcomed into the large dining kitchen which proves to be the perfect entertaining space time and again. Framed by carved panelled walls, the well-designed kitchen provides all the mod cons for groups wishing to self-cater, with the combination of seating meaning there’s space for everyone to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy longed for time with friends and family.

On the ground floor, you’ll also find a convenient utility room with access to a washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as hanging space for your boots, coats and other outdoor wears. Beyond, a cloakroom with double basin and WC.

After a day of exploring, the library-style snug provides comfortable seating for seven and with the wall mounted TV and Firestick at hand, the kids will be kept entertained for hours. If it’s a family affair, the spacious lounge provides comfortable seating for all 14 guests across 3 bespoke leather sofas. The country-chic style is complemented by the modern day Stovax Studio Inset Wood Burner and wall mounted TV. Access to the rear garden and patio can be accessed from both the snug and the lounge, bringing a real sense of space to this luxury residence.

The first floor offers 5 sumptuously styled bedrooms, all presented with well-paired soft furnishings and colours to compliment the beauty of the house, as well as a nod towards the fell and lake views that are found beyond the character windows. Three king size, one twin and one further duplex double bedroom make up the first-floor accommodation, each benefiting from an en-suite bath or shower room. The sixth bedroom makes up the second floor, with 4 single beds – designed to give your group some flexibility – once again, with a stunning en-suite shower room with bold, geometric floor tiles and walk-in shower.

Externally, the property benefits from large private grounds: the garden to the rear of the house offers a tremendous patio for al-fresco dining and summer entertaining, with a 14-seater dining table and 2 charcoal barbeques from where you can enjoy the far-reaching fell views while the kids can relish in the expanse of enclosed lawn. Enjoy a morning cuppa in the tranquillity of the front patio, where further outdoor seating is provided for you to enjoy.
