    “Lovely accommodation in a perfect location.”

    Few minor things that need some attention (missing door knob, over flushing toilet, sofa not the most comfortable), we also experienced some noise from the upstairs apartment however none of these things spoilt our stay, we had a lovely relaxing week.

The property

1a Biskey Howe rests at the heart of Bowness-On-Windermere, a vibrant, bustling settlement set on the famous Lake Windermere in the Lake District. With roadside parking available, a collection of well-appointed interiors, and a superb location just a stone's throw from the nearest shops, pubs, and restaurants, this charming dwelling welcomes a couple seeking a romantic, self-catered escape to Cumbria. Inside, discover an array of tastefully-presented living spaces, comprising an open-plan living space complete with a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining table with seating for two, and a sitting area with a leather sofa and a sleek wall-mounted TV. When it's time to unwind, refresh with a rejuvenating shower before you eventually hunker down to catch your precious rest in the inviting double bedroom. After savouring your morning coffee, lace up your shoes and set out to explore what Bowness-On-Windermere has to offer. A brief stroll will take you to several convenience stores and supermarket where you can stock up on homely essentials, whilst a hearty pub lunch can be tucked into at The Albert or The Flying Pig, or if you fancy something alternative, book a table at BAHA Bowness or the Bodega Bar & Tapas. During your stay, be sure to pay a visit to the must-see The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, hop onboard a tour along the lake with the Windermere Jetty Museum, and make your way up to the brilliant scenic spot of Brant Fell Viewpoint to gain magnificent vistas of the Lake and countless mountain ranges. A drive outside of the village will also bring you to nearby Ambleside, home to the beautiful Stagshaw Gardens and Stock Ghyll Force waterfall, whilst those looking for something more challenging can embark on a hike up the outstanding peaks of Helvellyn or Scafell Pike. Make memories to last a lifetime in Cumbria by booking 1a Biskey Howe.
