There are many stunning sights in the UK. But the view from this property in the Lake District takes some beating.

  • What’s the property like?

    Imagine having a gawp at this view over your morning porridge! Simultaneously breathtaking and jaw-dropping, it is courtesy of a five-bedroom home fittingly called Skyfall. And it has a licence to fill your heart with joy.

    It is imaginatively designed, with five ensuite bedrooms encompassed by natural woodland gardens. And, there's a detached two-bedroom annexe too.

    Completed in 2016, Skyfall has many bespoke features, from the handcrafted oak staircase inspired by the Holbeck Ghyll Hotel and the Voysey-replicated entrance door, to the elegant reclaimed internal oak doors and Arts and Crafts-style fireplaces finished with handmade, tiled surrounds.

    Where is it?

    It's set on an elevated plot in the hamlet of Great Langdale, in the Lake District National Park. And THAT view takes in the peaks of Lingmoor, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and Harrison Stickle. 

    How much is it on for?

    Skyfall costs a pretty penny at £2.9m and is on sale via Fine & Country.

    The sprawling property is predictably well above the £862,867 average house price in Great Langdale, where values have fallen by 2.14% over the past 12 months.

    What else is interesting about the area?

    Bring your hiking books, because the Lake District is renowned as a walker’s paradise. If you're feeling adventurous, there are spectacular rock climbing routes of all grades such as Raven Crag, Gimmer Crag and Scout Crag. Further information can be found at

    When the day's done, there’s plenty of sustenance for weary travellers too. The Sticklebarn Pub, Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel and New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel are all a short walk away from Skyfall.

    But if you simply want to relax and take in the surroundings, how about a cruise on Lake Windermere? Alternatively, just peer out from your new dining room window.
