    “Stayed at the Heights a few times and we love it every time.”

    Perfect location in the heart of Bowness, spacious and well equipped with spectacular views front and back. Really is a great place to stay to enjoy all that the lakes has to offer.

The property

A unique and sophisticated Bowness townhouse with views of Lake Windermere and the mountains beyond. A quieter location but within a short stroll to Bowness town centre and Bowness Bay Pier . Watch boats bob on the lake from the top floor, surrounded by all the individuality and style The Heights has to offer. Sleek furnishings and spacious open-plan design creates a comfortable base from which to explore. Laze on the balcony accompanied by some of England's most spectacular scenery. Return from action-packed days to swap stories in the comfortable arms of the giant leather sofa, dine together in style, then have a good night's rest in jolly comfy beds. == Accommodation in detail Entrance through hall. The ground floor has it's own 'apartment' within the property, consisting of a double bed, bathroom/WC and it's own kitchen, together with access to the rear garden. Stairs lead to the first floor and access to the other 2 spacious bedrooms and bathroom. Upstairs again to the open plan lounge/dining room with the wall of windows and balcony access, with furniture. The kitchen is open plan, with stunning lake and mountain views. Private parking for 2 cars. Location Bowness is a contemporary Lake District village, overlooking lovely Lake Windermere from its eastern shore. The characterful high street is well-served with handy supermarkets and a wide range of shops for browsing. A wealth of excellent pubs and acclaimed Lake District restaurants make for enjoyable evenings out on the town. The 3-screen cinema, the Royalty, shows the latest movies, and the Old Laundry Theatre will also keep you entertained. Lake Windermere provides some of our region's most popular boating attractions. Rowing, sailing, water sports or perhaps something a little more leisurely? The elegant Lake Windermere steamers run all year round from Bowness Pier, providing a scenic and car-free route to explore both Ambleside and Lakeside. Take the car ferry across Lake Windermere to discover Beatrix Potter countryside; the author's home is open to the public at Hill Top in Near Sawrey. Also on this western side of the lake is the chocolate box village of Hawkshead... there are so many places to explore.
