“Great location nice peaceful street but only two minutes from the centre of Bowness and all the shops ,bars and restaurants.”
Families or groups of friends will love the views from the top floor of this town house and balcony. The sun floods in through the patio doors by the living/dining room, with wooden beams overhead. Although just a few steps from bustling Bowness, you'll feel miles away from the rush when relaxing at home. Wander to Lake Windermere for the day, enjoy yourself on the water, then return to watch the sunset on the balcony. Perfect. Cook a hearty meal in the roomy kitchen then retire to a king size bed for a good night's sleep. Children will love the bunk room! == Accommodation in detail Garage parking for one car and 1 private parking space. External steps lead to the first floor and entrance hall. Three pretty bedrooms, 2 doubles and 1 bunk room, on the first floor, as well as bathroom with shower over bath. Upstairs to spacious open plan living space with views through a wall of glass to the full-width balcony, deep-cushion furnishings and TV/DVD. The modern kitchen and dining area are off the lounge, but set apart with contrasting wood laminate floor. Outside there is a garden with a patio on raised decking. Location This central Bowness holiday property is perfectly located for a fun Lake District holiday. Standing on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere; Bowness village brims with quirky shops, boating activities, cafes, restaurants and handy supermarkets. The 3-screen Royalty Cinema and the Old Laundry Theatre provide plenty of evening entertainment... as do the fantastic selection of traditional pubs and contemporary bars. There are endless activities on and around Lake Windermere, from sailing and rowing, to cycling and walking. From Bowness Pier the Windermere Lake Cruises steamers take picturesque trips to Ambleside and Lakeside - a great way to explore car-free. Also only a couple of miles outside Bowness village is the prestigious Windermere Golf Club. Keen hikers will find plenty to tempt them in the areas surrounding Bowness. Head up Gummers How for some of the best views of the lake and National Park, or take the car ferry across to Hawkshead to explore Grizedale Forest and the spectacular surrounding area. The forest offers good walking, cycling and entertaining sculpture trails. For those who want to explore further afield, the A591 provides an easy route to many of the Lake District's most spectacular locations.
