Return to this light and spacious home from home after a day exploring fantastic fells, stunning scenery and gentle walks along Lake Windermere’s shoreline.

Windermere is right at the heart of the Lake District and has incredible scenery, excellent walking opportunities and a wealth of things to do to suit everyone. With its independent shops, stylish bars and many different eateries, it is a vibrant and bustling village. The neighbouring village of Bowness has a cinema, museums and even more shops and eateries, and you can take a trip on the steamer around Windermere Lake and hop on and off to explore. History enthusiasts will love visiting the stately homes nearby including Sizergh, Levens Hall and Holker Hall, all within 15 miles. Explore the magnificent Langdale Valley, 10 miles away, with its rugged mountains and peaceful tarns perfect for fell walking. 2.5 miles away, Brockhole provides a lovely day out with indoor and outdoor play, lakeside walks, treetop adventures and plenty of places to picnic.

Deceptively spacious, the clever use of light and space creates a bright and airy interior that has been tastefully furnished and decorated with local photography and art. Discard your coats and muddy boots in the hallway and head through to the living room. The bay window allows light to flood in during the day, yet becomes a cosy space when the coal-effect electric fire is lit. Two comfortable sofas are ideal for settling down with a good book or movie nights in. Gather everyone for sociable meals in the dining room, lighting the wood burner on chilly evenings. The efficiently designed kitchen is equipped with a gas hob, electric double oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/dryer. There is a door to the back yard and parking area, and there is a downstairs WC. Upstairs, the double and twin bedrooms are spacious and light, each with a wardrobe, dresser and a large sash window.  The skylight in the family bathroom creates a bright room, and there is a shower over the D-shaped bath.

Outside, the rear yard is accessed from the kitchen and there is a bench to enjoy the morning sunshine with a coffee. At the front, there is another bench ideal for watching the world go by with a glass of wine. With plenty of space to stretch little legs, Queen’s Park is 300 metres up the road and has tennis courts, a football pitch, a children's playground and a skate park. There is off-road parking for one car and on-road parking for one car (permit provided).

The cottage is in a great location for accessing the shops, eating places and other facilities in the town centre. Having a parking space is very good. The street parking, even with the disc supplied, would be very hit and miss. There is lots to do and see in the locality. The cottage rooms are of a reasonable size, but there is a need for considerRead moreable TLC to make them pleasant enough to live in. There is no pleasant private space to sit outside at the rear.

Roomy and comfortable holiday property. Great to have off street parking and close to Windermere Town - less than 100m to shops. Bowness-on-Windermere is less that 30 minutes walk away - or there is an open top bus service every 20 minutes. Getting in and out of the bath, for a shower - which is excellent, by the way - is a problem for those of us Read morewith mobility issues. Notwithstanding that, we had a super week exploring near and far - despite the rain!!! 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.
