Superb views to the lake over to Wansfell and the Fairfield Horseshoe

Wansfell is a beautifully presented, ground floor lakeside apartment set within the magnificent main residence at Pullwood Bay. Superb views can be enjoyed from the main living area and master bedroom over the terrace to the lake beyond and over to Wansfell and the Fairfield Horseshoe.

Although delightfully rural, Pullwood Bay is within an easy 2-mile reach of Ambleside and nearby Hawkshead where you’ll find a superb selection of shops, galleries, bars and restaurants.

The estate is set in over 51 acres of private landscaped gardens and mature, natural woodland. Guests can enjoy a stroll or bike ride through the beautiful grounds which are home to wild deer, squirrels and a superb selection of flora, fauna.

A spacious hallway has access to outdoor storage and a handy drying cabinet. Through to the open plan lounge and dining area. The lounge being a contemporary space, with deep-cushioned comfy sofas from where to catch up on your favourite soap if you’re not too distracted by that view!

Tucked around the corner is the quality, designer kitchen, well fitted with every convenience you’ll need to fully self cater during your stay. There are three, beautifully appointed bedrooms; one super-king with en-suite double ended bath, shower cubicle, hand basin and WC; a second kingsize bedroom with en-suite shower, handbasin and WC and a further twin which has access to a Jack and Jill third shower room with cubicle, handbasin and WC.

Guests at Wansfell have use of the terrace and 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.

    Wonderful stay as always, Wansfell is the most beautiful apartment with in my opinion the best ever changing view of Windermere!

    We have loved our two weeks summer break and as at Easter we didn’t want it to come to an end.

    50 plus years our ever growing family have been visiting Pullwood Bay (Huyton Hill) and love it. Great for Sailing, Kayaking, Swimming, relaxing, exploring and as a family of 18 including a pooch, over 4 of the properties, playing cricket on the big lawns!

    Looking forward to our next stay!

    Just returned from a week long stay at Wansfell with the family. We had a fabulous stay in this outstanding apartment. It is beautifully furnished and exceptionally clean, the surprise welcome hamper was very well received too! The views are wonderful and we made full use of the gardens and lake access. There is ample parking at the front of the house and great walks from the door. We didn’t want to come home! We will definitely book again and would thoroughly recommend both the apartment and Pullwood Bay itself.

    We’ve had a wonderful week staying in Wansfell. It’s such a beautiful setting and lovely to be able to swim in the lake / relax on the terrace after a day out in the mountains.

    The apartment is furnished very tastefully and to a high specification with all the equipment you need. Really quick to get to ambleside for all the essentials and we enjoyed days out in the Langdale valleys, to Easedale tarn, up Great Gable, canoeing on the lake and hanging out by the river in Skelwith Bridge.

    This was our 3rd stay at Pullwood Bay, this time in Wansfell, previously we have had Fairfield and Skiddaw, both excellent.
    What a fabulous apartment, beautiful decor, fantastically well equipped, the only fault we could find was no ice bucket for the Champagne we always bring for our 1st evening to get the holiday off to a brilliant start!
    Very comfortable beds, brilliant showers (not always the case in holiday lets) and helpful, friendly
    staff there to welcome us on arrival.
    The grounds are amazing with direct access to the lake for swimming and kayaking, cycle paths for biking, wildlife in abundance and the Drunken Duck just up the road, although sadly not open yet due to Covid but well worth a visit when you can.
    Lakeland Retreats have been friendly, helpful and professional throughout and are definitely a letting company I would use again.
