Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, this humble abode sits less than a mile from Lake Windermere where plenty of adventures await. Cosy yet sleek, this home sleeps four guests over two bedrooms, great for couples or small families looking to escape for a countryside getaway. Welcoming a four-legged guest too, set off into the local town of Bowness-on-Windermere for a morning stretch of your legs and to pick up some tasty treats for breakfast and lunch.

Stepping up to enter this property, find a handy area to store muddy boots. For the ultimate relaxing evening, head to the lounge where you can sink into the sofa, stock the coffee table with goodies and switch on the Smart TV, as the high ceilings and a window create a tranquil, calming ambience. Brilliantly open plan and beautifully finished, the kitchen/diner is a great place to cook up a feast to enjoy together; plate up at the table when you’re ready to serve. Your fantastically central location means you’ll most likely spend lots of time in the great outdoors, earning a well-deserved soak in the bath and a peaceful night’s sleep. After dinner, do just that and bubble your night away in the family bathroom before heading to rest your head in one of two gorgeous bedrooms. Sitting on the first floor, the bathroom and bedrooms are light and spacious, though you will need to take care of the sloping ceilings. There is roadside parking available.

If you fancy a day off from the kitchen, a plethora of welcoming eateries are close to home in Bowness-on-Windermere, so you can tuck into delicious feasts without having to jump in the car. From the local town, explore all that Lake Windermere has to offer and hop on a cruise which takes you to Ambleside or Lakeside, on which dogs are more than welcome.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 king-size, 1 super king-size (can be made into a twin, must be stated at the time of booking)
  • 1 bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer
  • Roadside parking
  • Shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance

  • Arrival: 17:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00, unless otherwise stated in your arrival details
  • 1 dog allowed. Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week

We had a great time at the cottage. It was spotlessly clean and would highly recommend the cottage. Great location for all amenities too. Holiday cottages were great from start to finish and was very helpful. Would certainly use them again.

Very much enjoyed the stay at this property, everything was really nice and comfortable especially decent mattresses. Great shower and everything you need. Property had been very well cleaned prior arrival. Quiet location yet easy walking distance to either Windermere or Bowness. Plenty of parking on the road even on a bank holiday at any time.
