Langdale View Apartments

A group of four comfortable Lake District holiday apartments, set in an elevated position, in a superb location, at the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere. Just five minutes’ walk from shores of Lake Windermere and two minutes from the town centre, the greatest charm of these apartments has to be their superb location. Set in a former traditional Lakeland house with distant views of the Langdale Fells, these lovingly-furnished and tastefully-decorated properties provide cosy accommodation for couples, families and friends, away from the main hustle and bustle of Bowness, but close enough to amble down into the town. With one apartment set on the ground floor, two on the first floor and one on the second floor, these lovely properties offer flexible sleeping arrangements for a variety of party sizes. All also have their own bathroom, great for long soaks after days walking or cycling in beautiful surroundings. Bowness-on-Windermere boasts a fantastic lakeside location for watersports or simply cruising on the Windermere Steamer. Younger guests will delight in the World of Beatrix Potter, whilst the interesting mix of shops, galleries and restaurants will be appreciated by everyone. Leaving Bowness and heading over to Ambleside and Grasmere will offer a varied backdrop of fells, lakes and mountains to explore – you may even spot some Herdwick sheep. The visitor centre at Brockhole is another great place to visit, with a tree-top adventure course and gardens running down to the lake shore, so pack a picnic and enjoy a super day outdoors. A group of lovely apartments, ideal for family and friends to get together at any time of year.
