The property

Although centrally located, this contemporary modern cottage enjoys views over the village bowling green towards Lake Windermere. The accommodation is stylish yet comfortable; colourful boutique meets sophisticated retreat. There's ample space for sociable meals in, an air of relaxation thanks to the views, and of course the treat of Bowness and Lake Windermere on your doorstep and even better Woodside West takes short breaks so that you can enjoy all the lakes have to offer. The patio/terrace with two private parking spaces are almost unique to such a central location and ideal for lazy summer days or just enjoying a glass or two before dinner, yet here you really do have the best of both worlds. Only a stones throw will lead you into Bowness village, overflowing with excellent restaurants, local shops and pubs. If searching for a sumptuous yet central Lakeland cottage, with more bathrooms than bedrooms, then search no longer as here it is. == Accommodation in detail Spacious entrance hall with Lakeland slate tiled floor, ground floor bathroom with shower over bath and a separate and most useful utility / laundry room. Upstairs to the first floor; A modern and well-equipped kitchen has all you require together with dining space. The bright lounge with deep cushioned sofas and super view through two windows. Upstairs to the king size bedroom with en-suite shower room, and stunning views including Lake Windermere. Shower room. The 2nd bedroom is a double with iron bed and lovely outlook. Outside you have 2 private parking spaces and a patio with furniture. Location Bowness village is a popular Lake District holiday destination, on the eastern shores of Lake Windermere. It's a delightful place to spend a family holiday in the Lake District, and a convenient base if you would prefer not to use your car during your stay. You'll find contemporary shops, supermarkets, acclaimed Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs, all within walking distance. Bowness also has the Royalty Cinema, and the Old Laundry Theatre - perfect rainy day entertainment! Kids will love the World of Beatrix Potter attraction in Bowness. The shores of Lake Windermere are the real attraction in Bowness. Just a few steps from the village high street, you'll find hire boats in Bowness Bay and lake cruises on Lake Windermere. The famous Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside - a great way to explore these must-see locations without having to use your car. A car-ferry also crosses the lake from Bowness, providing your route to picturesque Hawkshead on the western side of Lake Windermere. Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness village, on the way to Crook and the Lyth Valley. Even if golf isn't your thing, we recommend a trip that way to explore the wealth of renowned Lake District country pubs.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
