The property

The Wonky Burrow is a beautifully-furnished, characterful, lower-ground-floor apartment located in the lovely town Bowness-on-Windermere, in Cumbria. Situated in the Lake District National Park and near Lake Windermere, this apartment is a perfect base for nature-loving couples wanting to discover the beauties of the Lake District or cuddle up onto the sofa with your special someone to watch your favourite shows and movies. When you're feeling peckish, head to the sleek kitchen and whip up a delicious meal for the pair of you to enjoy in an intimate conversation around the dining table. When it's sunny, open up the French doors to the rear patio garden and enjoy your meals out in the warmth. After a long day out, unwind under the rainfall shower and sink into a king-size bed to catch your rest. Venture out to visit the beautiful, lakeside town of Bowness where you'll find Lake View Garden Bar for some alfresco dining, lake views, British cuisine and live music. Tuck into a steak or burger at Boardwalk Bar and Grill, or for a lighter meal have lunch at the lakeside Old Pump House café. Drive up to Ambleside and for a taste of history visit Ambleside Roman Fort, the remains of a 2nd-century fort and National Trust - Wray, a neo-gothic 1800s castle. Take a hike up to Stock Ghyll Force and gawk at the 70-foot waterfall and the undisturbed countryside plains and if the weather allows, end the day with a walk through the scenic woodland Stagshaw Gardens and take a picnic. Make your way to the charming market town of Ulverston and say hello to the animals at South Lakes Safari Zoo, lounge on the sand and paddle in the water at Canal Foot Beach, and before making your way back to the apartment and closing out the evening with a candlelit dinner at L'al Churrasco. The Wonky Burrow is a perfect romantic retreat for you and your soulmate.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
