The beautiful garden at The Bird’s Nest makes this 3 bedroom modern bungalow a little slice of paradise, and the glorious surroundings offer the best of the Lake District on your doorstep. It’s ideal for families or groups who want to enjoy nearby Bowness and Lake Windermere, or simply spend lazy days on the patio or in the garden.
Soak up the sun on wintry days in the warmth of the conservatory, or eat al-fresco meals on the patio before retiring to the stylish living room. Stunning walks start straight from the door, including up to the Biskey Howe viewpoint above Bowness, from where the whole of Lake Windermere can be seen. Not only the birds want to build their nest at this place!

Although peacefully secluded in its private gardens, The Bird's Nest lies only minutes' stroll from the lake shore village of Bowness. The village is easily accessible for a timely escape; only 20 minutes from the M6 and a few miles from the train station at Windermere.
Bowness is one of the Lake District's most lively and sophisticated villages. Shops line the high street, from handy supermarkets to elegant boutiques and quirky gift shops. There are plenty of coffee shops, ice cream parlours and restaurants - endless choice for an evening out and a lively nightlife too! The bustle is easily escaped though; numerous walks begin nearby including the famous ascent of Gummers How where the views over the lake are unforgettable. You might also venture into the Lyth Valley (just east of Bowness), where the handful of exceptional country pubs are regularly winning national awards for their mouthwatering food and local ale.
The prestigious Windermere Golf Club lies just outside Bowness, and has been declared a 'miniature Gleneagles' by the golfing press. Back in the village, there is plenty of family fun to be had. You'll find mini golf and tennis on 'The Glebe', and the award-winning World of Beatrix Potter attraction is in the centre of town - an absolute must for children.
A car ferry across Lake Windermere from Bowness provides an easy route to the west of the lake, where Beatrix Potter countryside and the honeypot village of Hawkshead await. You'll never be short of opportunities to explore... if you can tear yourself away from The Bird's Nest!
