Accessed by way of an internal staircase, enter Great Gable on the first floor where you’ll find a handy cloak/shower room with handbasin, WC and useful drying cabinet.

The extensive open plan living area is divided into a sumptuous lounge with deep-cushioned velvet corner suite, perfectly placed to enjoy the views from the enormous window or to watch the 55 inch TV.

The dining table is set into a deep bay and separated by the superbly appointed kitchen with a full complement of quality Poggenpohl units and integrated appliances.

On the upper floor, you’ll find a King bedroom with TV and en-suite double-ended bath, shower cubicle, hand basin and WC. The second bedroom is a twin room (please ask for superking) with TV and adjacent shower room with hand basin and WC.

Guests at Great Gable share in half a mile of private lake frontage, perfect for enjoying a picnic at the water’s edge whilst taking in the glorious views of Windermere and her surrounding fell range. The private jetty is available for those wishing to launch a dinghy, canoe or kayak (with prior arrangement) and the shallow bay is safe for taking a quick dip, paddle boarding and perfect for those more adventurous wild swimmers amongst you.

Respond to Great Gable

  • Brian Morgan says:

    This was our second stay in Pullwood Bay but our first in the Great Gable apartment. We absolutely loved it! The apartment is spacious on both floors, the living and kitchen / dining areas on the first floor were great. The living area was very comfortable with fantastic views of the lake, looking across to Ambleside, and of the nearby peaks such as Wansfell and Red Screes. Upstairs is equally spacious and comfortable. Both bedrooms are large and there is plenty of storage space. The en suite of the main bedroom is really nice and the bathroom next to the second bedroom is a good size. The facilities throughout are a really high spec, from the shower room on the first floor to the kitchen utilities and the upstairs bathrooms.
    Pullwood Bay is so stunning during the day and so quiet and peaceful at night. We saw deer, rabbits, herons, birds of prey and a few varieties of water birds. The private jetty is perfect for swimming and boating, and the walk to Wray Castle is very picturesque.
    We will be back next year!

    This is an amazing place to stay. The views are incredible and the photos dont do it justice. It is so peaceful and quiet and I’ve never felt so relaxed in a place before. Definitely worth a stay.

  • Isabel says:

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Great Gables! The apartment was immaculately clean and very well furnished. We had an issue with the integrated microwave and Lakeland Retreats responded very quickly and had a replacement delivered within a couple of hours. The best part is the incredible view! We’ll definitely be returning!

    Fantastic location right on the lake, very peaceful estate but still close to Ambleside for convenience. Apartment furnished beautifully and great communication from our host. Hope to be back soon!

    We booked the Great Gable apartment at Pullwood Bay Estates via Lakeland Retreats. This is an excellent company to deal with and made the booking easy from start to finish. Lakeland Retreats answered all my questions about Covid at the time of booking and reassured me that if we were unable to travel due to restrictions we could move the booking to a later date. I also had further queries concerning hypo allergenic bedding prior to the holiday and Lakeland Retreats investigated this with housekeeping and quickly came back to me with answers. On arrival at the property there was a lovely welcome package of local produce waiting for us. It was a delight and a very nice surprise. The property itself was extremely clean and well maintained and everything was of very good quality. The views from the apartment across Lake Windermere were absolutely stunning. The apartment itself was also stunning and presented a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere to relax and unwind in.
    I was impressed with the email contact from Lakeland Retreats during and after our holiday. It was like having a virtual arm around you whilst on holiday asking if you have any issues or queries not to hesitate to get in touch with them. Lakeland Retreats are a professional company to deal with and very customer focussed. We will definitely be booking again with this company as they are friendly and helpful and have an excellent portfolio of properties.
