    Plenty of out door seating from which to enjoy the view of the bay and the Lake District fells in the distance. The property is a luxurious retreat for two. Pleasing decor,comfy bed ,and well equipped kitchen. I missed a bath. There is just a shower here,but the shower room is spacious and stocked with top quality toiletries. Music system is just CD's. We enjoy nature,and bird watching so found plenty to interest us in the area. Walks from the door especially handy. Also ,a short walk down a path adjacent to the property and you arrive at the Beach Hut for ice cream,coffee and cakes ! The owners live directly above and apart from an initial contact on arriving , gave us complete privacy. All in all would highly recommend Shady Bowers and hope to return.

About the location


Kendal 10 miles; Windermere 17 miles.

Arnside is situated on the southernmost tip of the Lake District in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where low limestone hills, marshy plains and deciduous woodlands characterise the surrounding land. This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past. The beautiful pier and port areas of the village offer stunning views across the Kent Estuary, as well as providing an enduring reminder of Arnside's illustrious history. To the south of the village are the 15th century Pele Towers, which were constructed to defend against the marauding Scots. The local surrounding area is a nature lover's paradise with stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks through countryside alive with rare plants, trees and wildlife. The internationally renowned Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve is also just one mile away. Guided walks across the Kent Estuary are available, showing the full splendour of the shore and surrounding area. Within easy touring distance are the Lake District and Lune Valley, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.

Note: No children under the age of 18 years old.
