The property

Capturing the very essence of the Lake District this conveniently located contemporary 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 stylish open-plan living space is made for sociable occasions or cosy evenings in by the warming woodburner, the kitchen has it all including solid oak worksurfaces and a Belfast sink and the two king size bedrooms are chic and spacious. The bathroom complete with designer roll top bath and separate monsoon shower is perfect for long soaks after a day on the fells and don't forget the snug where you can relax with a book or a movie. There is a pretty rear patio / garden ideal for al-fresco living on sunny days and all this within a couple of minutes from the absolute heart of bustling Windermere vibrant village. 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 Wander through the pretty front patio / garden; traditional entrance hall with beautiful Victoria tiling opening into the spacious and gracious living / dining area with bay window flooding light through this impressive space. A great place to unwind and relax in the sumptuous furnishings by the warming woodburning stove. The modern kitchen has all you may need with access to the enclosed rear patio / garden with furniture, perfect for relaxing sunny days. Upstairs there is a snug and also on this level is one of the superb king size bedrooms and the large luxurious bathroom complete with roll top bath and separate monsoon shower cubicle. A flight of open stairs leads to the loft king size 2nd bedroom, our favourite and perfect for star gazing...A parking permit is provided for this property. The property is ideally located tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of Windermere town centre but only a 2 minute walk away from the delightful mix of cafes and bars. Location This gorgeous Lake District cottage 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.
