THE Lake District's tourism sector is set to receive a boost when five new holiday villas arrive in 2024.

The properties are being introduced as part of the Waterhead Bay development scheme by AshdownJones, an estate agents based in the Lake District.

The five 'luxury' villas will cover 979 square feet and present buyers with a perfect lakeside view.

A spokesperson from the estate agents said: "Welcome to a collection of five luxury exquisite holiday villas, designed and planned to the highest standard.

"They combine the timeless beauty of the Lake District with modern luxury, and present an extraordinary commercial opportunity."

Based around Windermere and a short distance from Ambleside, the development project is designed to 'redefine the skyline of [the] historic town and establish itself as a timeless legacy'.

"Providing exceptionally crafted and individually designed homes of distinction, to be enjoyed for generations to come, get ready to be captivated by the innovative design and architectural triumph that is Waterhead Bay," said a spokesman.

"Reflecting hours of dedication and passion, with an emphasis placed on genius architectural design, Waterhead Bay presents three rare  opportunities to become involved in this development that will stand as an iconic landmark."

As well as the villas, two homes will be made available as part of the project.

'Goldeneye' is a five-bedroom detached house covering 3868 square feet on the shores of the lake.

It will be joined by 'Otter Holme', a four-bedroom property of 2943 square said to be perfect for family living.

The estate agents added: "Nestled against an expansive marina, Goldeneye  and Otter Holme stand as two opulent family homes designed to epitomise luxury lakeside living.

"Five, two bedroom holiday homes collectively offer another unique investment opportunity within this remarkable development."
