    “Fantastic location and a lovely cottage.”

    Jessica’s cottage has its own private garden and being on the end it’s a good corner size. We had a gazebo and bbqs all week as the weather wasn’t great. Nice layout and perfect for a couple/family of 3.

The property

A pretty name for a very pretty, traditional double-fronted Lakeland end cottage, peacefully located on the edge of National Trust land but still only a few minutes downhill stroll to the centre of Bowness. Step inside and you'll find a charming retreat, perfect for a couple or small family at any time of year. Cosy up on chilly evenings, find ample space for dining in the stylish country kitchen, and make the most of your gorgeous garden - complete with furnished patio and an outhouse to store your bikes. Wander straight onto the nearby fell to admire breathtaking lake views from the summit, or stroll down the lane to Bowness, for a shop, a lake cruise or a special evening out. Perfect! == Accommodation in detail Private parking for two cars. Traditional slate-floored entrance porch leading into the hall, with plenty of space for walking gear. Well-equipped kitchen / dining room with pretty cottage windows. The cosy lounge is calming in atmosphere, with a gas flame fire for ease and plenty of light flooding in. Upstairs to the two pretty bedrooms, one double and one single, both with lovely outlooks. The house bathroom is perfect for a long soak with shower over bath. The garden has a furnished patio, small lawn and outhouse - ideal for storing bikes. Location This romantic Bowness holiday cottage is perfectly placed to provide the best of both worlds, a peaceful retreat for couples or a convenient base for a family holiday in the Lake District. Explore the delights of this popular Lake District holiday destination, alive with sophisticated shopping, popular Lake District family attractions and endless choice for an evening out. Or, leave the crowds behind and walk straight onto the fell from your door to admire Lake Windermere from afar. Bowness is very well-served for a self-catering Lake District break with supermarkets, contemporary shops and many excellent choices for eating out - from traditional Lakeland pubs to contemporary restaurants and cafes. Stroll down to the lake shore, where hire boats come and go, and you can catch a famous Lake Windermere steamer to Ambleside or Lakeside - a scenic way to explore without taking your car. Couples might enjoy a romantic evening cruise on Lake Windermere, and young families will be pleased to find fun attractions such as mini golf on the 'Glebe', a miniature steam train and Lake District bus tours departing. Don't forget that Windermere Golf Club is located just outside Bowness. Touring the wider Lake District is simple and scenic by car from Bowness. Head a couple of miles up the road to Windermere, and you'll link up to the A591 - the main route into the heart of the Lakes.
