Skelghyll Woods

Welcome to Skelghyll Woods .......

Skelghyll Woods is a large detached former Gentlemans residence situated on the slopes of Wansfell, in the heart of the English Lake District. It is set in several acres of private gardens and grounds, and offers superb views over Lake Windermere and the surrounding mountains. There are many impressive walking and cycling routes, many literally from the doorstep!

Built in 1899, Skelghyll Woods is a fabulous country house in the Arts and Crafts style, with many wonderful original features including an oak panelled staircase, an Inglenook fireplace with a real fire, and Art Deco stained glass.

The house has been extensively and sympathetically refurbished over recent years and posesses all the modern facilities you would expect to find, whilst still retaining its original character and charm, and providing our guests with spacious high quality accommodation in a beautiful secluded setting.

Skelghyll Woods is still just a short stroll from Lake Windermere and the charming village of Ambleside, with good access to both local and national transport links, making it an ideal base from which to explore the Lake District.

An ideal house for most groups, suitable for anything from quiet retreats to family gatherings, activity holidays, and cycling or walking groups, team building exercises and also large celebrations, such as birthdays & stag/hen weekends.
This beautiful 6 bedroom property accomodates 16 guests.
