This fabulous family residence (also a treat for several couples) offers views to Lake Windermere from its slightly elevated position, amid wonderful scenery. A private drive meanders up to the house and guarantees a little bit of exclusivity for you and your gathering. Yet, being just a short stroll from the attractions of Bowness and Lake Windermere, Woodbank is right at the heart of some of the best the region has to offer.
Guests of ages will never be short of entertainment. Blending old Lakeland character with modern sophistication, Woodbank offers large bedrooms, luxurious furniture and the most wonderful dining room - perfect for sitting down to a good meal prepared in the traditional Aga! Alternatively, go al-fresco for your meals with great views from the patio and garden.

The sophisticated Lake District village of Bowness is nestled on the eastern shores of beautiful Lake Windermere - England's largest lake. Boats peacefully come and go, the mesmerising scenery across the lake changes with the season, and the abundance of lake shore and waterborne activities will keep everybody entertained. Bowness high street is well-served with handy supermarkets, sophisticated boutique shops and a wide range of excellent eateries - all within easy reach of your chosen holiday home. The Royalty cinema plays the latest films on its 3-screens and the Old Laundry Theatre also has plenty of entertainment to offer.
Outdoor lovers will enjoy having easy access to many popular Lake District walking routes. Head up to Gummers How to admire stunning views of Lake Windermere, or take the car ferry across the lake to walk around attractive Hawkshead and explore Beatrix Potter country (the author's home is close to Hawkshead in the village of Near Sawrey). Grizedale Forest is easily accessible via the car ferry, and popular walking destinations including the Langdale Valley, Coniston and Grasmere are only manageable drives away.
