This sophisticated detached Lakeland cottage truly enjoys the very best of both worlds; strolling distance from bustling Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere, yet in absolute peace and quiet, commanding outstanding views. Abbotsgarth Heights commands a gently elevated position providing breathtaking views to the Lakeland Fells, and when the leaves fall the view over Lake Windermere is magnificent.
This beautiful place offers a fantastic base from which to explore this vibrant village, the magic of Lake Windermere and also the wider Lake District. A soothing open-plan living space, with separate games / quiet room, makes the ideal environment for relaxed gatherings or sociable occasions. Two couples or a family can spread out and relax without treading on any toes; the two superbly chic bedrooms have their own luxurious bathroom facilities.
