Brunt House – A Magical holiday home in the Lake District National Park.

Built in c.1890, Brunt House is a newly refurbished and award winning holiday home in the centre of the Lake District National Park (now with UNESCO World Heritage status). Available for friends and discerning guests to enjoy the stunning views and perfect location. As well as traditional Victorian elegance and large spacious rooms, you’ll enjoy the best of modern convenience and luxury. The house is exquisitely furnished throughout, and accommodates up to six guests in three large en-suite bedrooms.

Featuring Italian leather sofas, luxury pocket sprung super-king beds, the latest audio-visual technology and a real log fire. The  contemporary hand made kitchen is equipped with every convenience and gadget. No expense has been spared in the total refurbishment, and the house is the perfect base from which to explore the best of the dramatic landscape, whatever the weather.

‘Visit England’ independent inspectors have awarded Brunt House the highest possible rating for a luxury holiday cottage or holiday home, the prestigous 5 Star Gold Award. We think Brunt House is unique and very special: we hope you will too.
