The Cottages 

A choice of eighteen holiday cottages to sleep from 2 to 10 guests, with lake or woodland views, on a beautiful country estate on the western shores of Lake Windermere. The cottages are a wonderful destination all year round for a family holiday or a getaway with friends in the English Lake District.

Graythwaite is great for children, an estate set in 5,000 acres to treat as a private adventure playground : open spaces to run around, traffic-free cycle tracks, heated indoor swimming pool, table tennis room, and a children's play area. And for adults there's a fitness suite, and fly fishing on our 2.5 acre private trout lake, stocked with wild brown trout and rainbow trout.

The cottages have been renovated to a high standard, with fully-equipped kitchens and modern bathrooms. Each has its special character, ranging from hillside hideaways, to exclusive lakeside locations, to original estate cottages and barn conversions on the Victorian farmstead located close to Graythwaite Hall. All cottages at Graythwaite have free wifi, apart from Hammerhole and Hullet Hall. We still have free wifi for these cottages at the reception.

All cottages have central heating and most have open fires (with logs free of charge from the estate).  We pride ourselves on improving the experience year on year to make your stay at Graythwaite truly special and memorable.
