Revive at Riverain Coach House
Riverain is a haven. Unwind in deep leather sofas beside a roaring log fire (pre-laid, you just have to light it) as you enjoy a glass of wine, a fresh brewed coffee or a nibble of home-made fudge from your wicker welcome hamper. Gaze out through high arched windows onto Blencowe’s castle towers and the undulating fells beyond. Linger over dinner by candlelight in carved chairs around your dining table or spot wildlife from the arrowslit windows in the rose sandstone walls. Feasts and muddy hikes alike are cleared away with ease – your kitchen and utility come equipped with dishwasher, washer, dryer and dog rugs, so you can snuggle into a nook with a book (or a loved one) and set yourselves up for round two of your adventures.
Savour the wild beauty and generous comfort of a stay at Riverain.
Suntrap terrace & Lakeland views
Your secluded terrace is a suntrap for leisurely breakfasts alfresco and convivial barbecues, with generous lawns beyond for dogs and children to run off steam. Have leaf-and-stick boat races along with bubbling rill; turn the grassy haha into a moat and fend off invaders. Soak up the sun on long days scented with lavender. With Blencowe castle at your elbow and the Lakeland fells stretching as far as the eye can see, your imagination runs free and your spirits soar.
Ensuite bathrooms and rainfall showers
Unboot and reboot after a busy day in the Pennines and Lakes. Steam aching limbs with a choice of en-suite bath or rainfall shower. Lean from your wrought iron Juliet balcony in the old hayloft to watch the sun set. Then sink down under feather duvets wrapped in Egyptian cotton and drift into sweet dreams.
If you can bear to leave...
Fill your lungs with clear Lakeland air – there are miles of running, hiking and biking routes from your doorstep. Potter around Greystoke village, a mile away, visit its legendary castle; take tea in the walled garden of the Cycle Café or sample a local brew in The Boot and Shoe. Aira Force and Ullswater Lake are minutes’ drive away for rambles, steamboat jaunts, water sports or Michelin-starred food at Sharrow Bay. Make memories to cherish, fishing for brown trout, picking sun-ripened raspberries or brushing snow from the branches of your hand-picked Christmas tree, felled to order on the Estates. If the limitless supply of natural wonders begin to pall, recharge your adrenalin with horse riding, quad biking, clay pigeon shooting or even a paintballing spree.
