          HOME AT FIRST’s eight Lakeview Apartments are located in a converted country manor house on a wooded hillside amid the pretty hill country of the southern English Lake District. Each apartment is unique, but all are furnished and maintained to a high standard of quality. Rooms are spacious. There are one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom apartments. Larger apartments may have as many as three bathrooms. Most apartments feature scenic views of hills and a small lake. The estate covers 100 acres of woodland and gardens. Great plots of rhododendron addtremendous color to the grounds when they bloom in the late spring.

 

 

THE SETTING: The Lakeview apartments provide lodging with all the comforts of home. Each apartment  is individually owned and cared for, and all have lovely views, as the house itself sits in an elevated position overlooking a small lake, the Esthwaite Water, one of the many of the Lake District. The property boasts 100 acres of gardens and woodlands for strolling and bird watching, and is an ideal central touring base for England’s Lake District and even as far as Scotland’s southern border (Hadrian’s Wall), and Yorkshire’s western edges.

THE LOCATION: The Lake District is one of Britain’s premier scenic areas. From its more gentle southern rolling hills, framed into fields by stone walls, to the craggy northern and western ranges of England’s highest mountains, the Lake District offers a wide variety of vacation activities.
        The
Lake District today is particularly well-known for its well-maintained "hill-walking" or hiking paths. But hiking is by no means all there is to do in this area. From lake cruising, to bike-riding, to touring the many historic haunts of Britain’s literary elite, the variety of activities in the Lake District is more than enough to fill a visit of one or two weeks.

 

        Lakeview Apartments are located a five-

minute drive from Hawkshead, one of the

 

prettiest villages in the Lake District, and boyhood home of English romantic poet William Wordsworth. Because the village has grown so popular over the last ten years, a large parking lot was built to the east of the village, and the cobblestone streets are now a mandatory car-free zone all year round.
         Hawkshead is a maze of whitewashed 17th century houses and other architectural anarchy that only adds to its charm. On holiday weekends and in high summer you will be very glad your own home away from home is not right in the village, which can be mobbed with day guests.


HAWKSHEAD IS A CLASSIC
ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT VILLAGE.

       Within a few minutes drive are the charming villages of Far Sawrey (home of Beatrix Potter of "Peter Rabbit" fame), Coniston (outdoor activity center), and Ambleside (regional touring center). A 5-minute drive from Lakeview Apartments leads to a car ferry across the principal lake of the region, Lake Windermere, to Bowness and Windermere towns.

 

ACTIVITIES: Walking, touring, cruising the lakes, cycling, shopping for crafts and arts, visiting museums, riding steam railways, horseback riding, and climbing mountains are principal activities that attract visitors to the Lake District. Roads are narrow, twisting, and uncommonly scenic. Famously, the beauty of the natural setting of the Lake District is complimented by the charm of its towns and villages. Time moves slowly and gracefully here, at a pace proper for a holiday in such a tranquil setting.
