This beautiful apartment makes a super base for a family or friends exploring the beguiling Lake District together, not least for its central location in ever-popular Bowness-on-Windermere. Guests will find themselves spoiled for choice, with a plethora of appealing Lakeland activities and attractions on the doorstep alongside a great range of shops, cafes and restaurants too. Lake Cruises on Windermere offer a wonderful way to explore the spectacular area that surrounds the Lake District’s largest lake, and Ambleside, the aquarium, the motor museum, the steam railway and endless breath taking fell walks are all enjoyably reached when travelling by boat. For Beatrix Potter fans, the Windermere ferry runs from Bowness-on-Windermere to Sawrey and from there, Hill Top - the author’s former home - is only a short walk. Closer still, the World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness is just a few moments from the property. And if the lakeside location makes water activities too tempting to resist, there are several water sports centres around the shores of the lake, offering everything from paddle boarding to high-octane wake surfing.

With spacious rooms, tasteful décor and excellent attention to detail, guests at this appealing two-bedroom property are offered style and comfort. Accommodation ranges across the ground and lower ground floors. On the ground floor, you’ll find spacious living areas, including a chic, bright lounge, flooded with light from a large bay window and with plush sofa, armchair seating and Smart TV, a smart kitchen/diner with a dining table and chairs seating six. A family bathroom with a bath and and overhead shower can also be found on this level, along with the first bedroom. Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where you'll find the second super-king bedroom  with an en-suite shower room. The beds can be presented as twins on request.

The apartment has a sunny patio, just off the kitchen, with garden furniture so that guests can relax and enjoy al fresco meals in good weather.

  • 2 bedrooms – 1 double and 1 super-king with zip-and-link beds (which can be made up as twins on request)

We had a lovely stay here in Bowness. The apartment is in a great location both for exploring Bowness and going out for local walks. Great little place for our sons first trip to the Lakes.

The reason my scores are not higher is because we are 4 elderly ladies (3 in our 80s and 1 in her 70s) We loved the apartment and the area but the steep incline leading up to the apartment was almost impossible for one of us and very difficult for all of us) Also I think it would have been helpful if there had been a non slip mat and hand rails in Read morethe bath. I don't think we gave our ages etc when we booked so it may be useful to ask questions on the booking form as to age and fitness. Also to recommend that older people without transport would find it difficult. In spite of all this we did have a lovely holiday and just sorry that we could not come again Hide

This property was maintained to the highest standards and was located in a quiet side road right in the centre of the town and was perfect for sightseeing . Parking spaces were a great bonus as parking is expensive in the Lakes. Would thoroughly recommend this property.
