The property

The Belfry is a superbly presented cottage in a beautifully converted church building which has many original features. The property is just a few minutes walk from the Lakeland village of Windermere with its many bars and restaurants. The upside down living takes advantage of the high vaulted ceiling and the feature arch window where you overlook St Marys Church. Take away those aches and pains by relaxing in the hot tub after a long walk or day out on the Lake. Presented to a very high standard it is a great choice for that romantic break or indeed with friends and family. Open plan living and a choice of three bedrooms, one en-suite, and a family bathroom. Accommodation The Belfry is located in a quiet and private close. On opening the door take the feature oak and glass staircase which leads to the first floor living accommodation. The spacious open plan kitchen, diner and lounge has a high vaulted ceiling and features a large arched window offering views to the church. The lounge is furnished with two seating areas, one with a comfortable corner sofa for watching TV and the other with a cosy sofa and a snuggle seat, just perfect for playing games with family and friends, reading or planning the days activities. The kitchen and dining area is finished to a very high standard and well equipped with everything you need during your stay with induction hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Ideal for cooking that hearty breakfast to set you up for the day ahead, or indeed to socialise with friends and family whatever the time of day. On the ground floor there are three bedrooms to choose from. The first is a king with en-suite shower, basin and WC. The second is a king and the third is a single. These two bedrooms are complemented with a bathroom with bath with shower over, basin and WC. To the rear of the property you will find a hot tub, just perfect for relaxing at any time of day. There is also seating, ideal for everything from enjoying the morning paper with a cup of coffee or later in the day a glass of wine. There is private parking for two cars. One is to the side of the property and the second in a marked space almost opposite the property. Location A self-catering cottage in Windermere will give you a real taste of the Lakeland lifestyle, with plenty of facilities and attractions on your doorstep. The village is less than 30 minutes from the M6 and also well served by a train station in the centre of the village. The village, found just off the famously scenic A591 - the main route into the heart of the Lakes, is only a couple of miles up the road from Bowness Bay and the shores of Lake Windermere. Windermere village is well equipped if you want to eat in or out. You'll be able to stock up on quality fresh produce at the high class Booths supermarket. The headquarters of Lakeland Ltd is a mecca for cooks and the high street offers a wide range of smaller local shops. There are several traditional pubs in Windermere, serving good Lakeland ale and hearty pub meals. You'll find tasty cafes for long, lazy breakfasts and excellent Lake District restaurants. The A591 provides easy access to many of the Lake District's most famous walking spots, but there are also a few lovely strolls to enjoy around Windermere village. A short walk up Orrest Head affords fabulous views to Lake Windermere and is a must during your stay. A short trip from Windermere are Coniston and the Langdale Valley, where you can begin some of the most spectacular walks in the country.
