Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Lingmoor occupies a superb trading position lying between the railway station and the centre of this delightful character Lakeland village. Built around 1850 as a railway manager's cottage, this lovely spacious property makes an ideal guest house. Its six good size en suite letting bedrooms are appointed and furnished to a high standard and are complimented by spacious and comfortable accommodation for the resident owners. With Lake Windermere only 5 minutes' drive away and a wealth of pubs and restaurants all within easy walking distance make Lingmoor a very popular place to stay in this area of outstanding natural beauty.

To many, Windermere is synonymous with Cumbria and the Lake District. More than a century ago the Victorians brought the railway to this delightful village - then known as Birthwaite - lying only a mile and a half from Lake Windermere and the village took its name. Now people flock to this area of outstanding natural beauty by both train and car. The deep blue waters of Lake Windermere - England's longest lake - are framed by glorious woodlands and watchful fells, enticing walkers to enjoy their time in this area of high fells and low paths equally. Yet Windermere is an ideal base to tour the area with Derwentwater, Bassenthwaite and Ullswater to the north or by taking the ferry across Windermere to Esthwaite and on to Hawkshead and Coniston, all being within easy reach.

Lingmoor was acquired by the present owners in 2009 and during their ownership they have continued the upgrading of this delightful guest house. They have replaced a number of windows and the outside doors, replaced three of the en suites as well as carrying out extensive re-decorating and replacement of carpets and soft furnishings. In the last year, they have also renewed the kitchen and replaced the owners' bathroom. Having established Lingmoor's trading position in Windermere on a very solid basis, the owners now want to move on to a new challenge.
