The Heaning Estate

Set in five acres of beautifully maintained grounds, edged by a wild meadow dotted with picnic spots exclusively for the use of our guests, The Heaning Estate is a luxurious self-catering destination for those looking for something a bit special on their visit to the Lake District.

Since owners Deb and Gez Lyon purchased the Estate in 2016, they’ve renovated it painstakingly using traditional Lakeland practices, local builders and highly skilled craftspeople, to transform it from a dilapidated Victorian wreck into a stunning Lake District holiday let property, with luxurious interiors and immaculate grounds.

Comprising The Big House (sleeps fourteen), The Small House (sleeps six) and five one bedroom Heaning Cottages each sleeping two, The Heaning Estate is set in five stunning acres of Lake District grounds with panoramic views. You can book each property individually, in combination or the whole Estate for that very special trip away.

All of the seven self-catering properties are furnished to the highest standards of comfort, luxury and attention to detail, in a distinctive Lakeland-Scandi style. The properties are managed, maintained and run day-to-day by the highly professional and hugely energetic Lakeland Retreats agency.

Book your property, breathe & relax

If you’re seeking a rather special, sophisticated and quality retreat in the South Lakes, then look no further. The Heaning Estate has it all, and more!

Featuring uncompromising luxury and unique interior design throughout in no less than seven stunning properties, this exclusive collection of holiday homes offers unrivalled quality and facilities for up to 30 people.

The Big House

Seven bedroom self catered house, sleeps 14

The Big House is a magnificent seven bedroom abode, set at the front of the estate affording superb views across the immaculately manicured grounds to the fells…

The Small House

Three bedroom self-catered house, sleeps six

By no means small, this perfectly formed three bedroom self-catered house sleeps six, sits to the rear of The Big House, and oozes character, charm and quality.

The Heaning Cottages

Self-catered Heaning Cottages, each sleep two

We have five Heaning Cottages, each sleeping two; Corner, Nook, Pod, Stable and End. All the cottages other than The Pod are pretty much identical mirror images in layout and design so we’ve grouped Corner, The Nook, Stable and End together and split out The Pod separately to help you orientate yourself a bit.

The Barn Cottages

Three bedroom self-catered barn cottages, each sleep six

The new cottages are currently undergoing extensive refurbishment and remodelling to bring them up to our exacting standards of design, so they reflect and complement the distinctive Scandi-Lakeland feel and luxurious quality of The Heaning Estate.

The Hub

Meet, Create, Innovate

The Hub is a spectacular addition to The Heaning Estate. With glorious views from its full-length French windows, this airy, light and modern space is available for hire exclusively for our guests. We’ve already hosted a 50th birthday, two yoga retreats, several corporate staycations, a family reunion and many formal dinners and family celebrations. The main room can accommodate up to 30 people.

A most exquisite destination retreat

The Heaning Estate is a few minutes’ drive away from Windermere, the gateway to the Lake District, now a UNESCO World Heritage site and is easy to find from Junction 36 of the M6. Set along a private lane off the A591 and just over a mile south of the village, the site is accessed along a sweeping, tree-lined drive and enjoys a commanding presence on the landscape with superb views towards the majestic Howgills, Windermere village and the High Borrans range resulting in a picture postcard backdrop to this unique estate.
