Four poster bed. Whitecraggs is a truly magnificent setting amidst 3. 5 acres of landscaped grounds designed by the famous Kew Plant Hunter, William Purdom, with mature specimens of rare trees and alpine plants, these three holiday apartments form part of Whitecraggs, a converted country house. On two levels, Black Combe Apartment (ref W41226) provides spacious accommodation with a romantic four poster bedroom. Skiddaw Apartment (ref W41227) provides cosy accommodation on the ground floor looking out over the gardens to Lake Windermere, whilst Scafell Apartment (ref W41228) is a delightful first floor apartment.
Commissioned and built in 1904, Whitecraggs is a prime example of pre-World War I architecture.

Designed by Dan Gibson, also known known for his design of five other prominent Lakeland properties, it was seen as architectural rebellion when compared to the historic style of the earlier Victorian era. Built in a traditional Lakeland style, influenced by the ‘Arts and Crafts’ movement, most of the original features and designs are still included today.
Situated in the tranquil location of central Lakeland, the area has been described as ‘a place of natural beauty’ by its commissioner and surgeon, Charles Henry Hough. Perched on the northern tip of Lake Windermere, Whitecraggs offers stunning views over the lake. It is surrounded by over 3 acres of landscaped grounds, made up of rare and exotic species of plant and alpine flowers, which Charles Hough shared his love for alongside William Purdom, otherwise known as the ‘Kew’ Plant Hunter.

William Purdom and Reginald Farrer set out on what would later be known as a ‘horticultural triumph’, as they attempted major excavation of this rocky, sandy and stony land. In 1919, what is now known as the ‘rock garden’, was freely opened to the public, and became one of the main visitor attractions in the region.
At the northern tip of the lake, centrally placed for the Lake District National Park, there is abundant walking, fell climbing in the nearby Langdales, water sports or simply wandering around charming Ambleside, which dates back to Roman times. From here you can take the steamer to explore villages on Windermere’s shores, as well as Grizedale forest. Shop, pub and restaurant 0. 75 miles
