Wakeling Island is the latest exciting addition to Silverlake and Habitat Escapes, with most properties enjoying direct lake-side views. There are still properties and areas of the island and Estate that are undergoing construction, so whilst Gray’s Cottage is fully completed, it you will see construction, machinery and workers on or around the island between 0730 and 1800, Monday to Friday. Please do abide by any signage relating to construction areas. Habitat Escapes and the Silverlake team will be doing all we can to ensure any disturbances are kept to a minimum. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of the Habitat Escapes Team.
Guests staying in properties without activity hub membership can still hire out equipment from the Activity Hub or bring your own equipment. To hire equipment for your holiday please book through the Activity Hub on our Silverlake Lifestyle Page.
Gray’s Cottage has been designed to make the most of the beautiful lakeside views. The ground floor features a flowing open plan living area, where the lakeside views can be taken in whether cooking at the kitchen island, enjoying a roast dinner around the farmhouse table, or snuggled by the fire in the living area. The living area includes a ceiling-hung TV, wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows, and direct access to the outdoor terrace, a perfect spot for sitting and relaxing with a favourite book or glass of wine, located feet away from the lake.
The charming kitchen is perfectly equipped for families or small groups to enjoy a self-catered stay, with an induction hob, oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge freezer provided, as well as cooking utensils (including children’s crockery and high chair, if needed). The ground floor also features a cloak room.
The upper floor features three bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en suite bathroom. The master room offers an open eave design with large sliding windows giving wonderful views of the lake. The light, spacious en suite features a walk-in shower. The other guest rooms offer flexible sleeping arrangements with a double-bed in one guest room, and a double-bed with a single bunk on top in the other. The family bathroom features a bath and shower.
