Broad Leys offers guest accommodation on the shores of Lake Windermere in the heart of the Lake District in seven acres of land with extensive Lake access.
Broad Leys has six spacious well appointed rooms, all furnished in the “Arts and Crafts” style with original fireplaces, two of which have large bow windows giving panoramic views of the lake and fells, with one offering views over the side garden and lake.
The house is set in seven acres of landscaped gardens leading down to lake Windermere. The combinations of the guest bedrooms, the main hall, dining room and lounge bar; each reflecting the master architects genius, makes staying at Broad Leys a truly memorable experience.
The main hall is also rich in club history and contains many portraits and photographs of past events. The bar along with the lounge and dining room, all with fireplaces, provide comfortable seating with sensational lake views.
