The estate agency Hackney & Leigh said: "You would be really hard pressed to find a property which offers such spectacular opportunities as Glen Rothay Lodge – whether your interests lie with hiking the fells, wild swimming, cycling or the less energetic pursuit of a quiet pint and a well chosen meal in the local pub, it really is all right on your doorstep here.

"Footpaths, almost from the property itself, can lead you gently around the lake shore, or along the Old Coffin Route to Grasmere, or indeed on to the high fells above, including accessing The Fairfield Horseshoe.

"And when your day of adventure is done, The Badger Bar awaits just a hundred yards or so along the road. Perfect isn’t it?

"And even if the location was not the obvious draw which it is, the house itself is an absolute delight.

"Traditional cylindrical chimney stacks and feature stonework around the lintels are just a couple of the pleasing architectural features, but we just loved the little cobble stone steps in the garden as being the one thing which summed up what this welcoming home is all about. It just makes you smile."
