Set in an enclave of four executive style properties, Slapestones benefits from privacy, mature gardens, and an elevated rural outlook above the Duddon Estuary. Slapestones, an imposing and newly refurbished holiday home, is easily accessible from the main road from Broughton in Furness and Millom at Thwaites. Its location offers the best of everything - a complete rural idyll and yet very close to local amenities. Slapestones boasts mature gardens on all sides, some have planted boundaries, whilst the rear garden from alongside the driveway extends behind the garage and is bordered with trees. There is also a rear woodland area. Views over the fields can be seen from both the front and side windows. A rear porch leads out to a walled patio yard which is gated to the driveway.

An ideal location for a private barbecue. Equipped to a very high standard, Slapestones benefits from four bedrooms, bathrooms both upstairs and down, a choice of two lounges, separate dining room, a modern kitchen and a peaceful ambience which helps bring about total relaxation. All in all, Slapestones is an excellent spot from which to enjoy all that the south Lakes has to offer. Once sampled, we think you'll return. All bedrooms are situated at the back of Slapestones via a long landing which means they all command an elevated rural view of the property surroundings.More

Slapestones had everything we could want from a holiday home; Comfy beds, a powerful shower and absolutely spotless. Amanda was the perfect host, and provided amazing advice when needed. Absolutely loved our time here and we were lucky enough to get the sun.

About the neighborhood
Slapestones is set in its own enclave of four executive properties. It is set back from the road, surrounding by field and woodland with good views from all sides. The nearest neighbours from this point are actually quite far away!
Getting around
The most convenient way to see the surrounding areas is by car. There is a very limited rural bus service. The nearest train station is Foxfield, about 4 miles away where you can get trains to Barrow in Furness, Millom or as travel as far as Carlisle for those wishing to explore a little further afield.
