  • Spacious Lakeland property in the very heart of the Lake District
  • Ideal base for exploring the Lake District and top visitor attractions in the area
  • Cafes, shops, restaurants, cinema and the shore of Lake Windermere only a short walk away
Property code: 78288

Ideal location set on a quiet street only a few minutes’ walk from the heart of the Lakes with both Windermere and Bowness within walking distance.

Tucked between the vibrant hubs of Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere, enjoy peace and quiet at home, yet stay close to an array of eateries, shops and local amenities. Sleeping four guests across two beautiful bedrooms, this abode is perfect for couples or small families looking to escape the hustle and bustle of their everyday routine. Welcoming a pair of pups too, enjoy dog-friendly cruises on Lake Windermere and head out for adventures all together.

Step up and inside and find yourself in the sleek, spacious and stylish kitchen/diner. After stocking the cupboards with your provisions, pop the kettle on and bask in the natural light which floods inside through the bay window. A wonderfully bright space, you will find everything you need here to prepare picnics, snacks and three-course feasts. A second bay window creates a lovely and inviting place to relax in the lounge where a pair of sofas sit in front of the Smart TV, great for film nights and lazy mornings. After long days and sociable evenings, descend stairs to the lower ground floor where two gorgeous bedrooms offer a quiet night’s sleep. Both bedrooms boast en-suite facilities, and the second double room has patio doors leading to the garden so you can meet fellow guests for an al fresco tipple. There is roadside parking nearby.

Wander less than a mile into thriving Bowness-on-Windermere and hop on a cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside where you can jump off and explore. On your return, stock up on delicious produce or treat yourselves to a meal out and enjoy taking a night off from the kitchen. Beatrix Potter fans can enjoy a day out at the National Trust’s Hill Top (4 miles across the lake), where the author spent time after the success of her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, and where you can wander the quaint 17th-century farmhouse and gardens.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

We had a brilliant time at the Lakes and it was nice to be able to return to a lovely property. It was worth having the lower Thornbarrow property for the outside space especially as we had our dog with us and was able to spend time in the garden in the evenings.

The cottage would have been good if it wasn't for the heating. It is all underfloor and I suspect as it is a new owner they haven't had many people visit in winter so the settings weren't right. We were max at 16 degrees which is good when youre out walking in 3 degrees and want warmth! Took 5 days to get it resolved. The place is lovely and well eRead morequipped it was just spoilt by how cold it was. I would like to have seen in the description that this was attached to a nursery! Hide

Lovely house, great location. The kitchen is well equipped and the fridge and freezer are huge! The garden is also really nice. The house is warm and well insulated - very helpful in the Lakes.

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.
