Lady of the Lake is one of our NEW COTTAGES!

As the name suggests, Lady of the Lake offers beautiful views over grassland and trees to lovely Windermere. A cosy retreat where two people can settle in and enjoy the peace and quiet, Lady of the Lake will appeal to you if you're looking to escape the pressures of everyday life and make the most of the glorious surroundings. The cosy king size bedroom at the back of the cottage is right alongside the modern fully tiled shower room and the modern kitchen is equipped with everything you could need. Take a seat on the small terrace area to the front and soak up the evening sun with a glass or two of wine before watching the sun set over the lake. The well kept communal grounds include a track leading through beautiful woodlands and past a wildlife pond to the shore of the lake with a small beach and a jetty for guests to enjoy. Ideal for launching a canoe, a spot of wild swimming or just watching the world go by.

Lady of the Lake is situated at the north end of Windermere town a short walk from the town centre and 1 1/2 miles from Bowness. Windermere is a pretty little town offering a range of independent shops and eateries as well as the popular Booths supermarket. Bowness is a bustling tourist hub centred around the bay, from here you can catch one of the lake cruises stopping at numerous places around the lake or hire a boat and explore at your own pace. There are walks along the lake shore or, for the slightly more energetic guests, try the walk up to the beautiful viewpoint of Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright first fell in love with Lakeland.

Windermere is an ideal location as a base to explore the southern Lake District. There are regular buses heading out to local attractions as well as the regular boat service on the lake so you can relax and enjoy the stunning views on your journey as well as when you arrive. The lively town of Ambleside is a short drive or bus ride away, whilst a little further north you can immerse yourself in Wordsworth culture at Grasmere. Further literary connections can be found just across the lake at Hill Top, home of Beatrix Potter. At the south end of Windermere the Lakes Aquarium offers a fascinating glimpse into life beneath the lake whilst Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway and the Motor Museum provide nostalgic trips back to the past.
