Wreay Mansions details

Wreay Mansions (once a hunting lodge where the Duke of Norfolk would retreat), situated in the hamlet of Watermillock, was no doubt chosen for its prime elevated site.

This unique property provides exceptional views of Lake Ullswater and the surrounding scenic fells, whatever the season. Immaculately presented, the accommodation offers luxurious, spacious living, carefully designed to take full advantage of the fabulous vistas. The 30 foot long sheltered balcony provides the ultimate place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors of the English Lakes.

There are numerous renowned restaurants and gastro pubs nearby in addition to a large choice of local farm shops, market town butchers, bakers and purveyors of Lakeland produce including the noted Cumberland sausage. This very popular tranquil retreat offers the perfect location for a family holiday. The views have to be seen to be believed, pictures cannot capture the true panorama. The only way to experience it, is to see it for yourself!
