The property

Gaze out over Lake Windermere and the Lakeland Fells from the comfort of this beautifully presented Bowness holiday home, still only a short walk from the vibrant village centre and lake shore. With a wall of glass in the top floor living area, opening to a furnished balcony, Lake View absolutely lives up to its name and provides an unforgettable retreat for one or two couples, family or friendly gatherings. You'll find ample space for dining in, and in addition to the balcony an excellent patio garden with furniture set and BBQ. It's rare to find such an incredible outlook in such a convenient location, with lake cruises, boating activities, sophisticated shopping and a characterful nightlife just waiting to be explored only a short walk away. == Accommodation in detail A large garage provides private parking for 2 cars. Steps lead up to the first floor front door. The king-size bedroom and twin bedroom are accessible via the lower floor hall, as is a fully-tiled bathroom with shower over bath. Upstairs to the recently refurbished open plan living area, with relaxed furnishings, fully-fitted kitchen and ample space for dining. Full wall windows open out to the furnished balcony. Lake View's garden patio is complete with patio set furniture and BBQ. Location This superb self-catering property with Lake Windermere views is a treat for a romantic break, or a perfect base for a family holiday in the Lake District. You're only a short walk from Bowness village, attractions, evening entertainment, and the boating activities of Bowness Bay. Windermere Golf Club is also with very easy reach. Bowness is a popular Lake District holiday destination on the eastern shores of Lake Windermere. With many contemporary shops, supermarket and amenities, you'll find everything you could need during your self-catering stay in the Lakes. There are a number of family attractions in Bowness itself, including the World of Beatrix Potter, mini golf and tennis on 'The Glebe' and of course the delights of the lake shore itself. Stroll to Bowness Pier and you'll find power boats and row boats for hire, as well as the famous Lake Windermere steamers. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside village and Lakeside. At Lakeside you'll find the fascinating Lakes Aquarium and one end of the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway experience. For a special meal out, try one of the many traditional pubs and contemporary restaurants in Bowness. Or head east a few miles into the lush Lyth Valley - an area renowned for its fabulous Lake District gastropubs.
