Awards

The property

Overlooking the lake and mountains, this Visit England 4 Star Gold awarded former coach house, in the heart of the Lake District, has been transformed with sensitivity and flair into an airy, inviting retreat full of character and charm. Emanating warmth and comfort, a mix of vintage and modern creates a style that flows through each room and creates a lovely atmosphere in which to socialize with your friends and family. A quiet location, but minutes from the centre of Bowness and Lake Windermere. Luxury sofas and chairs, soft throws and cushions, make Harrison Stickle elegant yet unpretentious. It is a place to put up your feet and relax in front of the fire without a care in the world, other than which adventure to foray out on, into this beautiful National Park. Built upon a knoll, a pretty terrace sweeps down into an old kitchen garden, which is full of wildlife. With a breathtaking backdrop of high fells, from Bowfell in the West, through to the climbers' paradise of the Langdales to the Helvellyn group in the East. The extensive views of the northern half of Lake Windermere defy this quietly tucked away place with ample private parking, yet within a minute's walk of the bustle of Bowness-on-Windermere. ==Accommodation in detail Ample off road private parking for 2 cars and bike shed if required. With an entrance hall leading upstairs into an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, which has a gorgeous view of Lake Windermere and surrounding fells. The large French windows enable you to step out onto the spacious balcony, with uninterrupted views over the garden and playing field, to the mountains beyond; a lovely place to sit for morning coffee on fine days. Inside are contemporary, luxury furnishings by an open fire, (first fire's coal provided). The well equipped kitchen has a solid oak breakfast bar. There is unlimited Wi-fi access, and an interesting selection of reading books and DVD's to while away a lazy day. The picnic basket is poised ready for the more adventurous expedition! Downstairs are the bedrooms and bathrooms, comfortably appointed with enormous king size beds, deep mattresses and Egyptian linens. The master en-suite has a Matki walk in rain shower. Both bedrooms with wonderful lake views, the guest bedroom is immediately opposite the house bathroom, with corner bath and shower cubicle. Location On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a sophisticated Lakeland village with a wealth of shops and restaurants to explore and enjoy. Stroll to the lake shore to hire a row boat or power boat, or take a 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. 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. Visit the tea room which offers a range of locally-sourced, Cumbrian produce. Take a break from driving to visit the nearby home of the famous William Wordsworth in Grasmere using the conveniently located bus stop found at the end of the drive. This centrally located property gives ease to visit all of what the Lake District has to offer, using 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. Take a trip out of the Lake District to visit the nearby town of Barrow-In-Furness, as well as the Walney Islands; the home to nature reserves and the Walney Bird Observatory. Travel north via the walker’s paradise of Ambleside, to Wordsworth's home in Grasmere and on to the market town of Keswick. Explore locations south of Bowness, to the pretty town of Cartmel, Home of the famous Sticky Toffee Pudding; then on to discover the beautiful beaches around Barrow and the unspoiled nature reserves of Walney Island. It is possible to leave the car behind and take advantage of the convenient bus stop at the end of the drive! (buses depart to Windermere every 20 minutes)
