About Sand Wath

Countryside views all around from this apartment on the second floor of a 17th century mansion.

Enjoy some green therapy when you stay in this Grade-I listed mansion, set amongst the glorious gardens of Acorn House. The one-bedroom apartment is based on the second floor of the 17th-century mansion and offers uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside. Inside reveals an atmospheric space with high ceilings and original features such as the wood panelled walls and period fireplaces carefully preserved.   

You’ll have direct access to the woodland walk along Crowdundle Beck, which is full of wild flowers and beautiful trees, to the partially restored Acorn Bank watermill. The nearby Eden Valley offers peaceful riverside walks, welcoming market towns and is an area rich in culture, myths and legends.

Bank Wood is ideally located in between The Lake District and the Pennines. You can drive to the mountain range at Skiddaw in less than an hour. Or you could explore the ‘backbone of England’, the Pennine Way. The National Trail is 267 miles long and follows moorland through the North Pennines AONB.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
