    “My overall stay at the cottage was fantastic great location.”

    We had a couple of issues and they are. It doesn't state when advertising that the Westmorland Pub rear exit is next to the cottage entrance door. Staff us the entrance morning and night and slam the gates closed. The hallway light sensor doesn't work and the light is on continuously and no way to turn it off.

The property

A real hidden gem! This perfect Lake District Cottage has been sympathetically transformed to a contemporary and chic escape. Set in the heart of the Village of Bowness, this beautiful stone built cottage also feels very private yet is only a stone's throw from the bustling bars, restaurants and shops. Finished to an impeccably high standard, Workshop Cottage provides guests with a beautifully furnished open plan living area, sumptuous bedrooms that have a designer feel, a luxurious wet-room and of course the balcony where you are guaranteed to while away many an evening. Your stay here will be relaxing, and this cottage has everything and more that you could need for a weekend, week or longer in this honeypot location. == Accommodation in detail The entrance hall leads upstairs into the modern and spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, with glass doors leading out on to the spacious and private balcony, this is the perfect place to sit to enjoy either morning coffee, a light lunch or a place to relax in the evening. Inside are contemporary, luxury furnishings with a huge TV and even a Wii. The well equipped kitchen has top of the range appliances throughout. Also on this floor is the beautifully furnished master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and dressing table; you will not want to get out of this king-size bed!! Downstairs is a further luxury double bedroom, complete with designer, high quality linens, there is also a separate dressing room with even more storage space. The bathroom is in fact a large, luxury wet-room with a walk in shower and also a large contemporary tub! Location On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a sophisticated Lakeland village with a wealth to explore and enjoy. Stroll to the lake shore to hire a row boat or power boat, or take an elegant cruise on one of the Lake Windermere steamers. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside; a wonderful way to explore without even using your car. Around the corner from Workshop Cottage is the Urban Food House restaurant, Rastelli's Pizzeria, Westmorland Inn and Sian Thai cafe. There are also plenty of traditional Lakeland pubs, both in the village centre and the surrounding countryside to choose from. Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness village, on the way to the Lyth Valley. This area is also renowned for gentle but very scenic walking, or head up Brantfell for views of Lake Windermere and far reaching fells. Close to the village, you'll find Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House. This impressive property takes a stunning position overlooking Lake Windermere, and has a range of interesting exhibitions. Join the A591 to Ambleside and Grasmere, and you can explore the homes of famous Lake District poet, William Wordsworth.Another great idea is to take the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere from Bowness, to visit the former home of Beatrix Potter in Near Sawrey, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead.

Note: There is no garden for pets, but plenty of walks from the doorstep
Please note: Pets not allowed in the bedrooms or on the beds as the owner has an allergy, thank you

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