Landing How, Lakeside
Arrival day: Saturday | Sleeps: 4
In a truly rejuvenating setting on the tranquil southern shores of Lake Windermere, Landing How is a magnificent first floor apartment within a distinctive Georgian development. Surrounded by 17 acres of grounds and gardens, along over half a mile of private lake frontage, this exquisite retreat is perfect for one or even two couples (with two bathroom facilities). But the 2nd king-size bedroom can equally be used as a twin for families or friends; just let us know when you book. The spacious living area overlooks the lake through elegant Georgian windows, providing an excellent space for sociable meals in and cosy conversation.
Landing How is also equipped with free WiFi and Sky TV. Lakeside Pier is within walking distance, for steamer cruises to Bowness and Ambleside. You'll also find a couple of excellent pub restaurants close by - if you can tear yourselves away!

Close to the small hamlet of Lakeside at the very southern tip of Lake Windermere, this lake shore accommodation places you within easy reach of several popular Lake District attractions.
Windermere Lake Cruises depart within walking distance at Lakeside Pier, providing a scenic car-free route to Bowness and Ambleside. You'll find family fun at the Lakes Aquarium - also on the lake shore - and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway departs from the same spot; an opportunity to take a short ride on a restored traditional steam train.
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, via picturesque country lanes, you'll approach 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 (also home to the wonderful traditional pub, the Tower Bank Arms). 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.
