Stay amongst luxury surroundings here in the heart of the beautiful Lake District. Located between the two bustling hubs of Windermere and Bowness, this characterful cottage offers the perfect base for two couples or a small family hoping to see the best of Cumbria’s starring national park. Enjoy a stroll to either town and embrace the attractions that they have to offer, whether it’s an afternoon spent at The World of Beatrix Potter or a quality evening meal in one of Windermere’s popular restaurants.

Beautifully presented with clean white décor and minimalist furnishings, this two-storey apartment certainly is a breath of fresh air. Step inside and find yourself in the suntrap kitchen/diner, well equipped with quality appliances and plenty of countertop space so that your group’s chef has everything they need to work with. After an enjoyable dinner together, the living room beckons. Don’t forget to bring your Netflix/Prime logins when settling down here and switching on the Smart TV for entertainment before bed. Complete with bright décor and beaming skylights, both first-floor bedrooms offer an good night’s sleep and charming atmosphere to wake up to each morning.

With Windermere just 1 mile and Bowness 0.5 miles, this property is wonderfully located for all the much-loved amenities these neighbouring towns have to offer. The impressive body of Lake Windermere also sits close by (1 mile) and offers plenty in way of activity. View the scenery from atop a lake steamer with an unforgettable boat trip or rent a canoe or kayak to try your hand at some adrenaline-pumping water sports. Those who wish to expend some energy can pack their hiking boots and experience panoramic views from Claife Heights (3.5 miles), whilst others may relish time spent at the Windermere Golf Club (1.5 miles).

The cottage was lovely and clean with comfy sofas and a spacious kitchen, in walking distance to Windermere and Bowness but up a quiet street with plenty of parking. We had a great time celebrating my mums birthday with a dog and baby in tow!

Very much enjoyed the stay at this property, everything was really nice and comfortable especially decent mattresses. Great shower and everything you need. Property had been very well cleaned prior arrival. Quiet location yet easy walking distance to either Windermere or Bowness. Plenty of parking on the road even on a bank holiday at any time.
