The property

At the southern tip of Lake Windermere, this charming bungalow benefits from an attractive, secluded setting at the end of a private close in Lakeside. Surrounded by wonderful walks and a network of pretty and peaceful lanes, Nutwood remains within easy reach of a wide variety of excursions and activities. It's just a 10-minute stroll to Lakeside Pier for cruises to Windermere and Ambleside, The Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Steam Railway. The accommodation is spacious, well presented and carefully planned for relaxed holidays at any time of year. Cosy-up by the wood-burning stove, on the comfy seating, in the recently updated living room or fling open the patio doors to the balcony on summer days. From your family-sized dining kitchen, spread out into the furnished conservatory and lovely little patio garden. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 1 car. Front entrance lobby leading to a spacious inner hall. The living room is large and airy with wood burning stove and patio doors leading out to the furnished balcony. Well-equipped, family-size dining kitchen with access to the furnished conservatory, furnished patio area and garden. 3 good-sized bedrooms; 1 king size, 1 double and 1 twin. House bathroom with shower over bath and separate WC. Location Lakeside is renowned as a peaceful Lake District holiday destination, nestled around the southern tip of Lake Windermere and away from the hustle and bustle of the busier areas. But despite this, you'll find a wealth of things to see and do within easy reach - whatever your holiday tastes. Windermere Lake Cruises depart from Lakeside Pier, and ferry passengers the full length of Lake Windermere to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderfully stress-free way to explore. You'll find plenty of walking routes in the area; including Alfred Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge (adjacent to Lakeside). Also nearby, two popular Lake District family attractions - the Lakes Aquarium and the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Steam Railway. Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas. To the north west, you'll approach Esthwaite Water and the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey. Only a mile or so further, and you'll reach Hawkshead village - a wonderful place to while away a day, exploring quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre.

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

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 miles.

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
