Delightfully Detached, Modern Home Enjoying Panoramic Fell Views
Named after a much-loved area of Provence that the original owner, a local artist visited, Le Tholonet is a most striking, detached retreat built in the mid-60s, carefully and cleverly constructed to take best advantage of the panoramic vistas that can be enjoyed from every single room in the house. The accommodation here at Le Tholonet flows well; the rooms are spacious and large picture windows allow for plenty of light to flood through and of course, give way to that fantastic view. Quality, traditional fittings have stood the test of time and the owners have injected their own style and that of the former owner with some superb pieces of artwork displayed throughout this home from home. Le Tholonet is a place to gather with your nearest and dearest, kick back and instantly relax – you’ll no doubt do as others do when you arrive and head straight out onto the enormous balcony to get as close to the fells as possible.
Just ½ a mile outside the village of Grasmere, the location is peaceful yet convenient for ditching the car and visiting the local coffee shops, galleries and Gingerbread Shop on foot and of course, The Jumble Room at least once during your stay! Walkers can explore the area right from the doorstep; take a stroll to the Lakeshore, head up Helm Crag or up to Easedale Tarn and for those more adventurous, take on the Fairfield Horseshoe or Helvellyn safe in the knowledge that you can return to the comfort of Le Tholonet to recuperate ready to do it all again the next day.
