This cosy property is ideal for couples and small groups keen to experience beautiful lake Windermere with its chocolate-box villages, walking routes and water sports opportunities.

Lake Windermere is renowned for its majestic scenery of mountains and rugged countryside as well as its array of activities and pretty lakeside towns and villages. Offering comfortable sleeping spots for up to four guests, you’ll soon be walking into Bowness-on-Windermere to sample delicious local produce in one of the eateries, or picking up souvenirs in an independent shop. The lake itself is a hub for water sports and leisure cruises, whether you are keen to try your hand at kayaking or would prefer to sit back and admire the views at leisure. A walker’s paradise, you’ll soon be discovering the varied landscape from the comfort of your doorstep, or catching the car ferry to explore somewhere new such as Ambleside.

Single-level and set on the ground floor of a converted barn, this compact yet comfortable property sleeps four guests. Step into the bright hallway and you’ll find the bedrooms to your right, and the lounge/diner to your left behind a partition. Natural light pours in through the two sets of French doors, and the wood burner set within the open fireplace keeps the open-plan living space warm. There is a dining table with seating for four, and the lounge has seating, a TV/DVD and a selection of books and DVDs. A set of double doors reveals the kitchen with its electric oven, ceramic hob, dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer and a fridge with icebox compartment. Back through the hallway you’ll find the family bathroom that is perfect for a soak in the shower over the bath, and there is a WC too. At bedtime, the first bedroom you’ll come to is the handy bunkroom with adult-sized bunk beds, wardrobes and chest of drawers. The final bedroom is at the rear of the property with a double bed, bedside tables, seating and storage.

Encircled by a dry-stone wall, the shared garden features a table and chairs for your sole use, ideal for sharing a bottle of wine with views at sunset. You’ll also find a car park area and a compact orchard alongside the lawned garden and BBQ area.

One of our best holidays ever offering the best of both a 20 minute walk to town or long walks across the fells. Great local restaurants but also a very well equipped kitchen. Great family facilities, clean, cosy with a modern meets character feel. Lovely spaces to sit outside either immediately by the property or in the enclosed orchard. Perfect fRead moreor letting our 18 month old run around safely while we relaxed! Will definitely be coming again Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
