Sarahs Cottage, Bowness
Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 2
This beautifully refurbished, detached 17th century Lakeland cottage resides in the enchanting grounds of a traditional Lake District farm. The setting couldn't be more romantic, nestled in the sublime Lyth Valley - a lush green landscape scattered with fine country pubs. But you'll still be only a short drive from Bowness village and Lake Windermere. Step inside the cottage and you'll be charmed by the atmosphere of the homely lounge; old oak beams and cosy furnishings around a heartwarming fireplace. But there's nothing old and dusty about Sarah's Cottage; contemporary style and all mod cons create a holiday home fit for any special occasion - perhaps even an unforgettable honeymoon. You'd be wise to while away warmer days in the garden, with a bite to eat or a glass of wine on the patio. Bliss!
Accommodation in detail

A traditional entrance porch leads in to the cosy lounge, with old oak beams, woodburning stove (with a basket of logs suppiled) and large flatscreen TV with BluRay/DVD/Freeview.

Just to the east of Bowness village and the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, the picturesque Lyth Valley is an excellent location for a romantic Lake District break, or a world class walking holiday. The location is a peaceful alternative to busier areas, yet still only a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The landscapes are disturbed only by quiet country roads, Lakeland farms, traditional country cottages and grazing animals. The Lyth Valley is famous for its damson harvest, which gives rise to stunning blossom each spring. Don't forget to experience the Lyth Valley 'Damson Day' celebration if you visit in April.
The Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank is a must during your stay, just one of many acclaimed Lake District country pubs found in the Lyth Valley. Follow lunch with a walk up Gummers How, and you'll experience some of the finest views over Lake Windermere from the very manageable summit. Popular walking routes such as Scout Scar, Whitbarrow Scar and Cartmel Fell begin close by. Bowness is also only a short drive away, where you'll find handy supermarkets (Bowness Tesco delivers), a wide range of restaurants and also all the boating activities available on Lake Windermere.
