Rocky Bank offers family sized accommodation including kitchen, three reception rooms, downstairs cloak room, three double bedrooms, one with ensuite and a family bathroom. There is also a large larch timber frame studio annex in the garden currently used as a craft studio but would make the perfect home office.  Outside is an enclosed, deer proof fenced garden extending to around 0.75 acres with a wide range of mature trees and perennial plants, separated with lawns and slate pathways and ample parking for numerous vehicles. This rare find will appeal to a wide range of buyers including people looking for their main home, second home or an investment opportunity. 

Within the National Park, Lakeside is a small village along the western side of Lake Windermere near Newby Bridge towards the southern end of the lake which is only a short walk away from the property. Historically, Lakeside was established as a steamer pier for services up and down the lake. When the Furness Railway reached Lakeside in 1869, the Lakeside Hotel was built to serve the additional tourists brought by the railway and steamers. The steamers still run from here up to Bowness on Windermere and Waterhead at Ambleside as do the steam trains, but these days only as far as Haverthwaite. Eminently well placed it offers excellent access to all that the National Park has to offer and thanks to the High Newton bypass it is now easier and quicker to reach than ever before from the M6. Lakeside also offers quayside attractions such as Lakes Aquarium, Boats to Bowness along with cafes and also the new West Windermere Way providing easy access from Lakeside to Newby Bridge.
