Accommodation in detail
Private parking for 2 cars. Woodland Cottage is a lovely bungalow that has an open plan living area with exposed beams and Lakeland stone fireplace, well-equipped kitchen, dining area. Both the double and one twin bedded rooms have en-suite shower rooms. A patio door leads from the lounge to a private garden area. Woodland Cottage enjoys the privacy that the Park has to offer, yet is within a short drive from both Cartmel and the bustling Bowness village - making it an ideal base for exploring the Lakes.
The southern end of Lake Windermere is renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, being much quieter than the busier Lake District holiday destinations further up the lake. However, you're very close to the hamlet of Lakeside and Lakeside Pier, where the famous Lake Windermere steamers depart regularly to Bowness and Ambleside - a wonderful way to explore these areas without driving.
There are some lovely walks in the area, such as Wainwright's Finsthwaite Heights route from Newby Bridge. The route approaches High Dam - a picturesque tarn that you might just have to yourselves on quieter days. You'll also find several Lake District family attractions within easy reach. Also at Lakeside is the Lakes Aquarium - a fresh water aquarium displaying local wildlife.
The Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway offers an opportunity to take a short trip on a restored traditional steam train.
Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas.
