The property

This traditional Lakeland residence is conveniently located only a short 5 minute stroll mid way between both vibrant villages of Windermere and Bowness together with the shores of Lake Windermere. Convenience and space makes Ravenscroft a perfect base for sociable gatherings and family holidays at any time of the year with each of the four large bedrooms enjoying en-suite bathroom facilities. The reception rooms are also spacious and gracious. Relax in the garden and on the terrace after a day on the fells. == Accommodation in detail Park either in your private parking spaces or on the lane and wander through the garden to a traditional entrance porch. A spacious entrance hall leads into the drawing room with large windows on two sides, polished floor boards and relaxing furnishings. The dining room is fit for any formal gathering and from here is access into the well equipped kitchen. On the ground floor is a utility room with 5th WC and then upstairs to the first floor. On this level are three bedrooms: one with king size bed complete with solid oak bed and en-suite shower room; a further bedroom with king size bed and a third bedroom with twin beds, one with en-suite shower room and one with en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath. The stairs continue to the top floor king size bedroom complete with en-suite shower room. Outside the garden wraps around the property with a raised patio with garden furniture. Location The shore of Lake Windermere is less than a mile away. Windermere village itself is a charming and vibrant village at the heart of the Lakes. Only a short drive from the M6, and with good train links from Oxenholme, couples can easily meet up here and will find the village a fantastic Lake District self-catering base for trips throughout the National Park. The friendly village centre is a delightful community to settle into - tasty cafes, local shops, excellent Booths supermarket, traditional Lakeland pubs and plenty of picturesque Lake District walks from your door. You must walk up Orrest Head during your stay; the views over Lake Windermere are spectacular. Walk or drive a mile from your Windermere self-catering apartment, just down the road to Bowness, and you'll find even more to entertain - a wider range of restaurants, shops, pubs and trendy bars, plus the boating activity of Windermere lake shore. Why not take a cruise on the lake to Ambleside or Lakeside?

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