The Experience

You’ll feel delighted pitching up at this gorgeous Art Deco house with long views over the fells that make you go ‘wow’. Arrive to bubbles in the fridge and posh crisps to nibble on as you decide which room to bagsy. All six are big, colourful, attractive and have their own style and personality: choose the one with a freestanding tub or the one with a balcony.

Groups have heaps of space to spend precious time together as well as hiding away for a bit of quiet contemplation. The fabulous kitchen calls out for cooks to don aprons and create feasts, there’s a snug and garden room to retreat to, a long dining table for late night dinners, and a sunny living room. Otherwise just keep gazing at those views.

If you fancy a night off cooking, walk two minutes to smart Lyzzick Hall for a slap up meal, then return for nightcaps on the terrace. This is the perfect launchpad for all things outdoorsy: hiking, biking, swimming, watersports.

“We had high expectations which were exceeded in every way. We have had the best time. We spent a lot of time just enjoying the beautiful house and stunning views. We never tired of looking out, even in the pouring rain. We managed to sit outside with the wood burner on more than one occasion. Utter bliss.... in November!

Amanda and Stephen, Rochester

We managed to arrive on the hottest day of the year so far! Although we thoroughly enjoyed our walks and restaurant outings, we loved coming back to Endymion House each day!! The terrace views are truly spectacular and the house is amazing! Amazing, comfortable touches throughout. All three of us are sad to leave but promise to be back!

Olga, Brighton

Endymion is a truly beautiful and very special place. Eight friends enjoying our second year here and another amazing set of memories will be with us forever.

Antonia, Berkhamsted

From the moment you walk in it is hard to know where to focus – the stunning views, the gorgeous Art Deco details in the house or the stunning art and furnishings. It feels incredibly special and any time spent here is truly memorable. I particularly loved the peace of the garden and garden room, as well as spending time chatting in the beautiful kitchen.

The neighbourhood

Folded into the foothills of Skiddaw, the house is positioned in a beautiful part of the Lake District with Wainwright walks from the door and only a short drive to the Lakes. Head to Derwentwater for wild swimming and boat trips, borrow e-bikes in Keswick and saddle up, try canoeing, sailing, paddle boarding and windsurfing nearby. Plus there are walks to suit everyone from kids to hardy hikers.

Local points of interest from Victoria Sowerby

  • There are a host of fell walks right from the door of the house, from an easy evening stroll along the lane to Latrigg to the mighty Skiddaw, the third highest fell in the Lake District, which looms behind the house.
  • Lake swimming is enormous fun at any time of year and Endymion House is close to both Bassenthwaite and Derwentwater. You can find your own spot or alternatively our neighbour and local guide runs wild swim tours finishing with a beach barbecue.
  • If swimming isn't your thing, you can hire a boat or kayak to explore Derwentwater - take a picnic to one of the uninhabited islands and be your own Swallows and Amazons.
  • The house is 2 miles from the small market town of Keswick with its abundance of shops, cafes and twice weekly bustling market, not forgetting our favourite local attraction - the small but fascinating Cumberland Pencil Museum.
  • Did you know that Cumbria is spearheading a foodie revolution and now boasts more Michelin stars than any other county? There are four restaurants with a star within easy reach of Endymion House.
  • Just a mile down the road, Mirehouse and Garden is worth a visit. The house is steeped in local history and was a frequent haunt of many of the Lake Poets. Walk through the gardens to the beautiful 10th Century St Bega's Church on the lake shore.


Victoria Sowerby

Victoria grew up in the Lake District but now lives in London with her family. They enjoy visiting whenever they can so you can expect to find everything you need for a fine holiday, plus lots of information in the blog section of her website detailing the family's favourite walks, best places to eat and a few hidden gems. You'll let yourself in and be completely self-sufficient during your stay.
