  • “Even though we had a garage,on arrival there was a van parked across the drive so unable to park.”

    Then during our stay it happened again whilst we were out. So again struggled to park near property.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at Bow Peak. We are sorry to hear a van was parked in the front of the garage upon arrival. I believe it was a courier van which was delivering to one of the surrounding properties which leave in good time of arrival. They would have been happy to move it if you needed it too. We hope you otherwise had a lovely week. Kind Regards Property Owner

The property

This stylish and sophisticated Lakeland treat, occupying a peaceful yet central position within this ever popular lakeside village destination, commands a superb view towards the Langdale Pikes with a glimpse of Lake Windermere. With private parking right outside, this contemporary bolt-hole is literally a stone's throw from the centre of the village and only a five minute stroll to the shores of Lake Windermere where a plethora of water-borne activities can be enjoyed. With superb views from this first floor aptly named apartment you even catch a glimpse over Lake Windermere as well as Bowfell and the langdale Pikes in the distance. The close proximity of one of the Lake District's most popular destinations means that within a 2 minute stroll from your hideaway, you are surrounded by a great choice of restaurants, a cinema and host of local shops and country pubs, perfect for any relaxing break at any time of the year. == Accommodation in detail External steps to an entrance door with staircase to the first floor. Inner vestibule and then walk into the living space to gaze out over the wonderful views. The living / dining room is beautifully prepared and designed for relaxation. The superbly fitted kitchen has everything you may need complete with that amazing view. Each bedroom is carefully presented, one double and one twin and then the luxurious power shower room ideal for an invigorating hosing after a hard day of the fells. Parking for 2 small cars in the double garage & also ideal for secure storage of bikes etc. There is an extra space outside of the garage for a small sized car (Larger cars will need to park on the road). Location On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a sophisticated Lakeland village with a wealth to explore and enjoy. Stroll to the lake shore to hire a row boat or power boat, or take an elegant cruise on one of the Lake Windermere steamers. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside; a wonderful way to explore without even using your car.There are several excellent restaurants in Bowness village, within walking distance of your apartment. The Postillion Restaurant is a long-standing favourite for stylish dining, while Bodegas & Sol puts a contemporary twist on the tapas style. There are also plenty of traditional Lakeland pubs, both in the village centre and the surrounding countryside. Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness village, on the way to the Lyth Valley. This area is also renowned for gentle but very scenic walking, with a wealth of acclaimed Lake District country pubs to choose from at the end of the day. Close to the village, you'll find Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House. This impressive property takes a stunning position overlooking Lake Windermere, and has a range of interesting exhibitions. Join the A591 to Ambleside and Grasmere, and you can explore the homes of famous Lake District poet, William Wordsworth.Another great idea is to take the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere from Bowness, to visit the former home of Beatrix Potter in Near Sawrey, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead.
