There are few properties in the Lake District that have such breath-taking views in such a peaceful setting.

Dunnabeck is a charming detached Edwardian villa in a secluded position about 1 mile from Grasmere village with stunning views over Rydal Water and to Loughrigg and Wansfell beyond.

With its private drive and ample parking for several cars, the house is set in two and a half acres of a natural rocky woodland garden with trees, shrubs and winding paths leading to secret seats. This is a fine place for older children to explore, although little ones will need supervision. By the house there is a sheltered terrace and the front lawn with garden furniture offer a beautiful setting to relax and enjoy the view over the flower beds.

There are many walks right from the door making Dunnabeck a great choice for walkers. It’s central location make it an ideal base for many varied activities in the Lake District.  For more information, take a look at Things to Do.
