At the southern tip of Lake Windermere, this charming bungalow benefits from an attractive, secluded setting at the end of a private close in Lakeside. Surrounded by wonderful walks and a network of pretty and peaceful lanes, Nutwood remains within easy reach of a wide variety of excursions and activities - from elegant lake cruises to family fun in bustling Bowness, and even the Lake District's most fabulous historic houses. The accommodation is spacious, prettily presented and carefully planned for relaxed holidays at any time of year. Cosy-up in the living room by the woodburning stove on chilly evenings, or fling open patio doors to the balcony on summery days. From your family-sized dining kitchen, spread out into the furnished conservatory and lovely little patio garden.

Lakeside is renowned as a peaceful Lake District holiday destination, nestled around the southern tip of Lake Windermere and away from the hustle bustle of the busier areas. But despite this, you'll find a wealth of things to see and do within easy reach - whatever your holiday tastes.
Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier, and ferry passengers the full length of Lake Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderfully stress-free way to explore. You'll find plenty of walking routes in the area; including Alfred Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge (adjacent to Lakeside). Also nearby, two popular Lake District family attractions - the Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas.
To your north west, you'll approach Esthwaite Water and the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey. Only a mile or so further, and you'll reach Hawkshead village - a wonderful place to while away a day, exploring quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre.
