Rayrigg Villa lies on the corner of Ellerthwaite Square, overlooking the azaleas and rhododendron bushes of Library Gardens and with the shops, restaurants and pubs of Windermere Village only a short level walk away. Framed by the glorious woodlands and watchful fells, Lake Windermere - England's longest lake - is only a mile or so away at picturesque Bowness Bay. The magnetic beauty and magnificent setting in the centre of The Lake District National Park has drawn many millions of tourists to this superb corner of England and has fired the passion of the Lakeland poets Wordsworth and Southey as well as inspiring Beattrix Potter's writings and Alfred Wainwright's guide books.
Acquired by the present owners in 2005, they have carefully and painstakingly continued the tasteful upgrade of this delightful Lake District guest house, adding the en suite bathroom to the final two bedrooms as well as undertaking a superb refurbishment of the breakfast room to incorporate period décor and a lovely Victorian fireplace. With a warm welcome and the provision of such lovely accommodation for their guests, they have built the business to its present level of turnover just below the VAT threshold on a B&B basis providing them with an outstanding quality of life. Having enjoyed their years at Rayrigg Villa, the owners are now to retire from the hospitality industry.
