Please be aware - The Place, Loweswater is a busy holiday let and therefore is only available out of season in 2017. We could arrange availability for high season in 2018. Simultaneous or non-simultaneous swap. Particularly looking for a European SKI swap at Christmas 2017, February 2018 or Easter2018; USA or the Drome, Rhone Alps for the summer 2018. Our London house is more available. The Place is a beautifully appointed traditional 17th century lakeland farmhouse with stunning views over the fells and the lake of Loweswater. It sleeps 8 in four bedrooms, and oozes charm with traditional beams, carvings, niches, two log burning stoves, divine soft furnishings, luxurious beds, beautiful kitchen combining the classic with modern facilities and convenience. With a wonderful sense of remoteness, up a private lane, yet only 7miles from pretty Georgian Cockermouth, and 12 from bustling Keswick right on Derwent water, there are perfect walks, bike rides , adventures from the door, and a sublime walk through ravishing Holme wood, along the lake, to the Kirkstile Inn, one of the very best pubs in the whole of the Lake District. A wonderful games barn - with table tennis, pool and table football - keeps everyone happy when the weather is not playing ball. A sublime place for relaxation and adventure, the house is remarkably cosy while still being stylishly appointed. The house is a very successful premium holiday let but also our beloved holiday home and we will be moving there permanently in a few years' time. We cannot swap it during high season I'm afraid. However it is available for a non-simultaneous swap for some weeks in March, November and December 2017 (not Christmas or New Year) or simultaneous or non-simultaneous in off-season 2018 or the first three weeks of July 2018. There are currently some other odd gaps so if interested do inquire and we can let you know current availability. The swap could combine a stay in the Lakes with a stay at our London home (see other listing.) We are particularly hoping to have a ski swap at Christmas 2017 or February half term 2018. If Christmas, then you could stay in the Lakes for the first bit and then spend Christmas in London - it's lovely there with our sensational views over London and all the twinkling lights.
