High Strawberry Gardens, Holmrook, Lake District

The well-equipped kitchen at High Strawberry Gardens

Just metres from the water’s edge on the western shore of Windermere, High Strawberry Gardens is charming white cottage where you can escape the trappings of modern life (the only electric socket is for the fridge).

There is shared use of a jetty and walkers can enjoy gentle lakeside trails such as to Wray Castle and more challenging hikes on Claife Heights and beyond. After an active day there’s an inviting wood burner to cosy up next to.

If the weather is against you, there's also a fabulous woodburner so you can curl up inside and kep dry and warm.
