    “Absolutely fabulous stay at Skyfall.”

    Such a stunning apartment. Made our Christmas one to remember. Our border terrier loved the treat box and the welcome pack was very thoughtful. Will definitely return.

The centre of the popular village of Bowness has a great collection of traditional and modern restaurants, pubs, wine bars and cafes in addition to some of the best shopping in the Lake District, Skyfall is the ideal choice for everything from a romantic weekend away, a few days to explore Lake Windermere or those wanting to visit some of the Lake District's most popular attractions and if you want to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Accommodation in detail On arrival at Skyfall there are two private parking spaces. There are also spaces for visitor parking. The property has its own private entrance and is approached via exterior steps to the first floor apartment. The front door opens to the inner hallway with coat hanging space. By the front door there is room for boots and wet gear. The hallways leads to an incredibly well appointed, luxurious open plan lounge, kitchen/diner all completed to the highest standards and you can feel the quality throughout with so many lovely features and original details. The lounge is light and bright with big windows, relax on the sumptuous sofas, while away the evenings in front of the TV or chatting with friends.

Walks abound in the surrounding area... wander quiet country lanes, admire the damson blossom in springtime, or seek out challenging long routes in the wider Lake District. Set in private grounds, many types of wildlife including pheasant, grouse, deer and rabbits can be seen. There is the use of an all weather tennis court (rackets provided), putting green and well maintained lawns and garden. On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a sophisticated Lakeland village with so much 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. There are numerous excellent restaurants in Bowness village, all within walking distance of Skyfall, including champagne bars; contemporary wine bars; traditional pubs; and a range of great British and international cuisine. There is something for everyone, both in the village centre and the surrounding countryside, offering a full range of choice from traditional Lakeland pubs to fine dining. Within the Windermere Marina, less than a mile away, is The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant. Eating out in Cumbria has never been better, and now there is a gem on our door step! Enjoy one of the two fantastic south facing terraces on those lazy summer days, spend a few hours in the bar or book a table in the first floor restaurant for something a little more special or of course enjoy the comfort of your own accommodation back at your very own lakeside boathouse. 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, with a wealth of acclaimed Lake District country pubs to choose from at the end of the day. 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 nearby picturesque village of Hawkshead.
