Bristowe Hill – elegant Edwardian Lakeland mansion

Retreat among Lakeland’s finest peaks

Sleeps 16–20 guests

An elegant Edwardian home from home – provided your home comes with 360-degree views of Lakeland’s finest peaks, ten bedrooms and five acres of serene seclusion. Inside, spread out with family and friends among period features and modern touches. Retreat, revitalise and remember what matters in life.

Bristowe Hill is an elegant Edwardian Lakeland mansion. But it’s also a retreat. Hellvellyn, Skiddaw, Blencathra and Catbells stand guard, while Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite lakes nap placidly to the north and south. Somewhere in the middle, Bristowe sits high on a hill, surveying the valley past conifer and spruce.

Follow the tree-lined driveway through five acres filched from the Lake District’s loveliest corner and the sense of seclusion is immediate. That and the grand elevation, in more ways than one. Serenity reigns, yet there’s nothing remote about Bristowe Hill. Keswick town centre is a sharp stroll away and the motorway is within easy reach.

It’s impossible not to relax here. There’s space for family and friends to spread out in ten bedrooms, expansive reception rooms marrying period craftsmanship with mod cons. At Bristowe Hill, arts and crafts moulding, panelling and cornicing sit in harmony with superfast rural broadband and modern media.

Descend for dinner to the oak-panelled dining room. Take tea in the orangery. Sip aperitifs on the terrace. Or retreat to the pavilion for afternoon tea. Break out the croquet, soak up the views. A little more ice in your G&T? You can live like lords and ladies here, but don’t put on your pearls. Bristowe Hill is like a home from home.
