Attractive stone barn sleeping five guests on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, an ideal destination for walking, cycling and trying a variety of water sports on lake Windermere.

Your comfortable accommodation offers sleeping space for up to five guests, so you could soon be exploring near and far with a flask of coffee and tasty snacks in tow. Navigate the water by boat, travelling from Bowness-on-Windermere (1 mile away) across to Ambleside whilst soaking up the scenery. Disembark and prepare to be impressed, browsing the specialist shops and pausing for a bite to eat in one of the cafes, tearooms or restaurants. Visit the striking Stock Ghyll Force waterfall, admire the quaint Bridge House, or browse the museum before returning across the water in time for tea.

This cottage is beautiful. A really short distance from the town but tucked away in a quite location. It was very clean and the facilities in the property were really good. It was very warm and welcoming too. I would also like to mention crystal clean as i hoped that the property would be decorated for christmas and when i rang on the day i found oRead moreut that it wasnt so they went in and put them all up before we arrived. Communication throughout was fantastic. We would definitely recommend. 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.
