Make the most of Windermere with this dog-friendly home from home within easy walking distance of this popular area’s amenities and attractions.

With plenty to see and do right on the doorstep, set out on foot to explore bustling Bowness with its vast array of shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, cinema, and World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. Less than half a mile from the property, Lake Windermere itself has something for everyone, from lakeside picnics to steamer cruises, an aquarium, canoe and rowing boat hire and a spectacular choice of lakeside walks for four-legged friends. Take the car ferry across to Hill Top House, 3.5 miles away, the beautifully conserved former home of Beatrix Potter and continue to traffic-free Hawkshead, 5.5 miles away, with its whitewashed houses and charming cafes. Visit the smaller peaceful lake of Grasmere, 8 miles away, being sure to sample some of its famous gingerbread, together with neighbouring Ambleside, home to shops, restaurants, a cinema and one of the most photographed houses in the Lake District.

Inside, this spacious and stylish property offers fresh neutral decor, a homely feel and sociable layout. Designed to make the most of its enviably elevated position, the open-plan living accommodation is on the second floor. At one end, a modern kitchen area looks out over the Fairfield fells and is fitted with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. After dining at the round table, relax and unwind on one of the two sofas as you watch the sun setting over the fells or make the most of the Freeview TV. From here, sliding doors open onto the south-facing balcony - a wonderful spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening aperitif. On the first floor are the two tastefully presented bedrooms, one king-size and one super-king-size, together with the family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Continuing downstairs, on the ground floor a shower room doubles up as a useful utility area housing the washing machine and tumble dryer - perfect for drying off wet boots and paws, too.

Outside, a delightful enclosed rear patio garden with table and chairs is a pleasant spot for al fresco dining. There are two private parking spaces to the front of the cottage, plus an integral garage with an airer for drying outdoor clothes and space for storing bikes.

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

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.
