  • “Great location in Windermere and very convenient for local independant shops, mini supermarkets (Sainsburys and CO-OP) and restaurants.”

    Bowness is also nearby and within walking distance. The house is clean and well equipped. The two bedrooms are large (one king-size bed and one double) with plenty of storage. ...

    Bowness is also nearby and within walking distance. The house is clean and well equipped. The two bedrooms are large (one king-size bed and one double) with plenty of storage. You need to reverse park down the driveway, which can be a little tricky if you are not accustomed to doing this. Other minor negatives for awareness are that the bathroom is located on the ground floor, there are two short flights of narrow stairs to the first floor and the second bedroom has a few steps down. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend this property as a good base for exploring the Lake District.

The property

Capturing the very essence of the Lake District this conveniently located lodge cottage has been beautifully refurbished to provide a truly sophisticated Lakeland retreat. Tucked away in a peaceful backwater, close to both Windermere and Bowness villages and the shores of the lake. The living room is made for cosy evenings in by the woodburner, the kitchen / dining room has it all and the bedrooms are chic and spacious. The front patio opens onto a park providing a great immediate extension to the green surroundings. This convenient bolt hole is a treat at any time of year; perfect for a special occasion or even a Lake District honeymoon. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for one medium sized car right outside your property. Entrance porch leading into a hallway which takes you into the well equipped kitchen / dining room. The living room is designed for relaxation by the warming woodburner and a bay window gazes out across the park. Access to the garden / patio, ideal for pre-dinner drinks and on the ground floor is the modern bathroom. Upstairs to the two spacious and beautiful bedrooms, one double and one king size with interesting character only ever found in lodge houses. Also on this level is a useful room alongside the 2nd WC / wash basin. Location This unique Lake District lodge takes an enviable location; easily reached by car or by train and perfectly placed to explore Windermere village, Bowness and the delights of Lake Windermere without even having to use a car. Windermere village is a lovely place to make yourself at home, with lazy cafes for breakfast, plenty of shops for stocking up the kitchen, traditional Lake District pubs and several restaurants to choose from. A number of superb walks begin nearby, including the easy ascent of Orrest Head which promises spectacular views to Lake Windermere from the top. Walk or drive a couple of miles down the road and you'll reach bustling Bowness, a popular Lake District holiday destination offering sophisticated shopping, a range of restaurants and even a lively nightlife - from the cosy 'Hole int Wall' traditional pub to the trendy Bodegas & Sol tapas bar. From Bowness Bay, you can catch a Windermere Lake Cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside - what a way to explore without driving! For touring by car, you'll find Windermere a great place to start. A famously scenic stretch of the A591 leads to Ambleside, Rydal Water and historic Grasmere. Branch off into the Troutbeck Valley and take one of the most breathtaking scenic drives in the Lake District - over Kirkstone Pass to Ullswater with a stop at the acclaimed Queen's Head for lunch.
