Exclusive, 6-bed Lakeland house offering quality and comfort for 14 people

Oakland West forms a major portion of one of Windermere’s original gentleman’s residences, now an exclusive cluster of unique dwellings set just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of this popular, Lakeland town. Remodelled to a very high spec’ in recent times with great attention to detail and superb interior design, Oakland West offers exceptional accommodation throughout, a clever marriage of its former Arts and Crafts style integrated with a traditional country house and boutique hotel charm and the perfect venue for a larger gathering of friends and family looking to spend quality time together in outstanding surroundings.

Slightly elevated above Windermere, amazing views can be had from the rear of the house across the enclosed gardens towards the Pike of Stickle, Harrison Stickle and the majestic Langdale Valley. With a large sitting room and impressive dining kitchen, enjoy a movie together or play a board game or two but equally, there are some lovely nooks and crannies to enjoy some ‘me time’ with a good book or listen to your holiday playlist.

Six en-suite bedrooms ensure your every comfort by way of quality beds dressed in crisp, cotton linens whilst outside, two terraces and an enclosed lawned garden to the rear provide a stunning vista and, if you’re lucky, a glorious sunset to the West.

Oakland West is situated in a very exclusive part of Windermere and there is direct access via a private road to Orrest Head, one of the best short walks in the Lake District.


Superb, stylish accommodation

a beautiful place to gather with your loved ones

Enter Oakland West into the magnificent kitchen dining room offering both formal and relaxed seating, a large expanse of units wrapped in cool granite surfaces with a sizeable double oven, 7 ring hob and 2 dishwashers to make light work of the washing up. A separate larder houses two American style fridge freezers, important if you are going to properly self-cater for the majority of your stay and there’s a handy laundry with cloakroom and WC just off the kitchen. The superb lounge has bespoke leather seating for all 14 of you, set around a wood-burning stove, a large wall-mounted TV with Firestick and direct access to the terrace via French doors. A cosy snug/library with feature wallpaper also has a TV and comfy seating for up to 7, ideal if you are wanting to separate the grownups from the children for a while.

On the first floor are four of the six beautifully presented and individually styled bedroom suites; one twin and three kingsize, each with private en-suite bath or shower room. Bedroom five is a ‘Duplex Style’ bedroom and has a glorious Velux Cabrio balcony from where to take in more of the stunning views. The sixth bedroom on the second floor is a quad with four single beds giving greater flexibility for you and your party, again, with a super en-suite shower room.

Outside areas

Outside, Oakland West has ample parking for up to 7 cars with the added benefit of a charging point for a hybrid/electric vehicle. The patio to the front gets the morning sun whilst the large, enclosed lawned garden to the rear overlooked by a sun trap terrace enjoys the evening sun; both areas have ample furniture for all to enjoy the outside when our typical Lake District weather will allow!

Please note: Due to its quiet, residential location, Oakland West has a no stag, hen or similar policy group. The property is best suited for family holidays/gatherings, three-generation gatherings or ‘milestone’ birthday parties and anniversaries.

    Beautiful house in great location. Plenty of room for a large party of people and every one of our party of all ages couldn’t fault it. Would highly recommend and if you get the weather we had in July 2021 you will be very sorry to leave.
