SLEEPS 12 – Carnforth, Lancashire:

Grand Georgian House, furnished to the highest standards, situated within 2 acres of beautiful gardens. Within a short drive of Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale and The Lakes.

There’s certainly a sense of grandeur and opulence to the property, yet the fundamental charms of the original farmhouse still remain intact, as does the toasty, warm and homely ambience that runs through every room. Large picture windows fill the rooms with natural light, and when it comes to feeding 12 hungry mouths, the Aga-equipped kitchen boasts a fantastic, roomy social space, fully fitted with all that you need. All double bedrooms have the luxury of their own en-suite, and there’s a wood burner in the living room for cosy nights in.

And the fun doesn’t stop after stepping outside – you also have the run of 2 gorgeous acres of formal gardens that surround the house. Regularly visited by roe and fallow deer, toads, frogs, hedgehogs, a green woodpecker, herons, curlews, pheasants, and owls, it’s practically your very own nature reserve on your doorstep. Gardeners will also rejoice as there’s a wide variety of colourful and scented plants packed together into a relatively small space.

Situated adjacent to the owner’s home, the property makes a convenient base for those wishing to explore the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and the Forest of Bowland, and the market towns of Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale are also well worth a visit.
