Not far from the waters edge is the luxury self-catering retreat called “Winterfell”, located in Windermere, a large lake in Cumbria’s Lake District National Park, northwest England. Surrounded by an enchanting setting of verdant greenery, mature trees and mountains beyond. This ivy-clad cottage has a hunting lodge style exterior, consisting of stone and white trimmed windows.

Step into the interiors of this enchanting home and you will find rustic French nuances against a backdrop of snowy white; hence the name “Winterfell”. This home will romance you with its Italian influences, from the sparkling chandeliers to the ornate beds. Everything about this home is inviting and charming, from inside to out. From acres of private meadows and walled gardens, you will find this home relaxing and a breath of fresh air.

Your Home Stay: This retreat is dog-friendly, so no need to find your pooch a sitter while on vacation. The home sleeps up to 10 guests. Prices range from $2,092 – $7,389 (anywhere from 4 nights to a week).
