This traditional Lakeland property is just 1 mile from Bowness-on-Windermere. You’ll be right in the heart of the Lake District, with an abundance of fell walks, water sports and excellent eateries.

Located in a rural spot on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, the village is just under two miles away by car. If you want to head off on foot, the Dales Way footpath runs close to the house and takes you into Bowness in just over one mile. For dining out do sample the fine dining menu at a local diner just up the road from it or head into Bowness and Windermere for a choice of pubs, restaurants and cafes. If you’re a keen golfer, then you’ll enjoy having Windermere Golf Course nearby and anyone who enjoys messing about on a boat has a great range of hire and launching options to get out on the lake. There is also a network of lovely rural footpaths nearby with ever-changing and ever-beautiful views.
This characterful holiday home is ideally located for exploring the southern Lake District. Bowness is just a short drive away giving you access to Windermere lake shore and the regular boat services across the lake linking all the local attractions as well as providing stunning views on the way.
