A stylish and contemporary Lakeland treasure in a superb location; only a mile from the vibrant village and lake shore, but slightly elevated to give super views towards Lake Windermere and the fells beyond.
The elegant living space forms a great retreat for families or friends. Sociable areas extend throughout the cottage and there is lots of space to relax and unwind. You'll enjoy beautiful views, but it has to be said the top bedroom boasts the wonderful lake views. As well as being convenient for attractions and entertainment in Bowness, and of course on Lake Windermere, April Cottage is also a great base for walking and mountain biking. Being only a few hundred yards from the ferry which takes you over the lake to Grizedale and other areas making our area 'The Adventure Capital' for the UK, the cottage is equipped with a useful garage / drying room, perfect for the bikers.
