The Greenhouse at Skelwith Fold is a large holiday home in the Lake District. It is available to rent throughout the year and perfect for groups or extended families looking to holiday together.
The holiday cottage occupies an enviable position within the grounds of Skelwith Ford Caravan Park on the outskirts of Ambleside. It was custom built and sits on the foundations of the former Skelwith Manor which dominated the Skelwith Fold Estate until the 1950s.
Group accommodation in the Lake District
The Greenhouse sleeps 16 across 6 bedrooms – 4 of which are located on the ground floor, with accessible access into the house.
Kingfisher, the master suite, has a luxury super-king bed (which can be separated into two 3ft beds on request). The well designed ensuite bathroom has a shower over the bath so you can choose to have a long soak, or refreshing shower.
Badger is our second luxury super-king room, that can be made into a twin room depending on individual requirements (please ask). This bedroom is suitable for a wheelchair user with an accessible wet room with shower (seat and hand rails). The room also has an emergency exit with a ramp to the exterior.
The two other downstairs rooms, Squirrel and Fox, provide luxury king size beds with ensuite bathrooms.
Upstairs leads to Mouse, a cute attic room which the children love. It has 3 low small-double (4 foot) beds, accommodating up to 6 children (2 in each bed). Finch, our other double bedroom is accessed through Mouse, but can be locked for privacy. This is an attic room with sloping ceiling and a low king size bed. It has a lovely big window and charming feel. It also has an ensuite bathroom with separate shower and bath. We would generally recommend this room is taken by family members as the children share the bathroom. Due to the sloping ceiling we do not recommend this room for very tall people.
Along the corridor is the play/television room which gives the kids and teens their own place to relax. It has a separate WC (ideal for those staying in Mouse).
All of our bedrooms have their own heating and can be locked individually by keys if required. The luxury curtains and blinds give a near black out, which along with the comfortable beds and fresh air in the day, ensures a good nights sleep.
Spacious living area
The lounge is built around a central mock chimney stack and fireplace which is guaranteed to keep you toasty and warm throughout the autumn and winter. The large kitchen is a chef’s dream, with top quality appliances and plenty of worktop space for preparing tasty home cooked meals. An inbuilt Google Home device will help you with timers, recipes, ordering food and much more.
There’s an outdoor boot room and heated utility room, with washer and drier for your convenience. Remove muddy boots and get everything clean and dry for the next day.
Hot tub holidays in The Lakes
There are sheltered areas towards the front and rear of the property, creating a private setting to socialise with family or friends. The cottage also boasts a luxury hot tub where you can relax and unwind with a glass of bubbly in hand. Keen chefs can make use of our BBQ.
