Silver Howe, Bowness
Arrival day: Friday | Sleeps: 4
A glorious hideaway for one or two couples, tucked away from the rush and promising a breathtaking view that will stay with you long after you leave. Silver Howe's super-stylish living room and dining area really embrace the outlook - celebrate a special occasion while gazing towards Lake Windermere and the famous Langdale Pikes and Silver Howe. Both double bedrooms are divine, but the master bedroom is a romantic treat with queen-size four-poster bed. Although located in a more peaceful conservation area, Silver Howe is still within very easy reach of Bowness village and Lake Windermere. You can stroll to pubs and restaurants for an evening out, and walk to Bowness Pier to explore by boat.
