Nestled in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside Blaithwaite Estate is surrounded by 80 acres of estate grounds made up of 30 acres of gardens and grounds and 50 acres of woodland. Blaithwaite House (ref UKC1358) is a Grade II listed, detached country mansion which has been in the same family since the 1700s and is now available for guests to enjoy. The spacious country mansion is awash with original features from original ceiling roses and exquisite fireplaces to stained glass windows which adorn the building, helping it achieve its listed status. Comfortable accommodation is provided for up to forty people, in single, double and family rooms. The bedrooms, all but one room with en-suite facilities, enjoy views down to the sprawling front lawn and rose garden or across the courtyard. Blaithwaite House has a formal garden with manicured lawns and a charming walled rose garden with a beautiful summerhouse set on an island.
Blaithwaite Stables (ref UKC1359) is the old stable building for the Blaithwaite Estate, and has been carefully renovated to a very good standard, while keeping characterful original features such as the old range, but don’t worry, guests have all the modern conveniences to cook with! Twenty people can be comfortably accommodated in eight rooms, all but one room are en-suite, and two of the ground floor bedrooms are wheelchair friendly. The Stables overlook the superb old courtyard with access to the beautiful orchard, miniature golf and garden chess set.
The grounds play host to a wealth of activities made available, by the owners (at cost). These include clay pigeon shooting, archery, laser tag, mountain boarding, mini golf, climbing, relaxing guided walks and craft workshops. The woodland is made up of rare specialist trees and fascinating wetlands which you can explore for hours in peace. If you somehow run out of things to do at Blaithwaite Estate, or simply fancy exploring the area, the estate is set midway between Keswick and Carlisle where you can find a great range of shops, restaurants and bars, plus museums and activities to suit a wide range of tastes and interests. Beach 10 miles. Shop 1 miles, pub 2 miles and restaurant 5 miles.
