Fold Head House is a charming 2 bedroom Grade II listed cottage, enjoying an enviable location in Bowness-on-Windermere. Renovated throughout, Fold Head House is a wonderful retreat for up to 4 people and 2 lucky dogs. On the ground floor you'll find the stylish kitchen-diner and lovely living room with its wood burning stove. Upstairs on the first floor are the 2 gorgeous bedrooms and the family bathroom. Outside the cottage has a delightful garden and driveway parking for up to 2 cars - both a rare bonus for a cottage in this location.

Bowness is a vibrant village, less than a 10 minute walk away from Lake Windermere you're perfectly positioned for a day at, in or on the water! Pack a picnic and enjoy a lakeside stroll, the well prepared can wild swim, hire a boat or let someone else do the hard work and hitch a ride on the popular launch for a cruise around the lake. The village also has a great selection of shops and lots of different eateries to try out and there are some fantastic walking opportunities on offer from the door too. Walk up to Orrest Head Viewpoint and admire the view or take on a section of The Dales Way footpath.

Why not head north to Keswick, the adventure capital of the North Lakes? Sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies - try ghyll scrambling, canyoning or raft building on beautiful Derwentwater. The magnificent Langdale Valley is certainly worth a visit. With its rugged mountains and peaceful tarns, it's a must for any avid fell walker. Head up Lingmoor Fell for stunning, panoramic views of the lakes. Stop off at one of the traditional pubs on your way back for a hearty meal and refreshing drink.
