This warm and cosy apartment is set between Windermere and Bowness in the very heart of the Lakes, with everything on your doorstep to make a perfect holiday.

Set in the heart of the Lake District National Park, this humble abode sits less than a mile from Lake Windermere where plenty of adventures await. Cosy yet sleek, this home sleeps four guests over two bedrooms, great for couples or small families looking to escape for a countryside getaway. Welcoming a four-legged guest too, set off into the local town of Bowness-on-Windermere for a morning stretch of your legs and to pick up some tasty treats for breakfast and lunch.

Stepping up to enter this property, find a handy area to store muddy boots. For the ultimate relaxing evening, head to the lounge where you can sink into the sofa, stock the coffee table with goodies and switch on the Smart TV, as the high ceilings and a window create a tranquil, calming ambience. Brilliantly open plan and beautifully finished, the kitchen/diner is a great place to cook up a feast to enjoy together; plate up at the table when you’re ready to serve. Your fantastically central location means you’ll most likely spend lots of time in the great outdoors, earning a well-deserved soak in the bath and a peaceful night’s sleep. After dinner, do just that and bubble your night away in the family bathroom before heading to rest your head in one of two gorgeous bedrooms. Sitting on the first floor, the bathroom and bedrooms are light and spacious, though you will need to take care of the sloping ceilings. There is roadside parking available.

If you fancy a day off from the kitchen, a plethora of welcoming eateries are close to home in Bowness-on-Windermere, so you can tuck into delicious feasts without having to jump in the car. From the local town, explore all that Lake Windermere has to offer and hop on a cruise which takes you to Ambleside or Lakeside, on which dogs are more than welcome.

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

  • 2 bedrooms – 2 twin zip-and-link (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request)
  • 1 bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer
  • Roadside parking
  • Shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance
  • Smart TV in lounge

This is a comfortable, spacious, and well equipped cottage. Its conveniently located for walking into both Bowness and Windermere for shops, restaurants, and the lake. An excellent base for visiting the Lake District. The property is generally clean although would benefit from a deep clean particularly in the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay here.

Upper Thornbarrow is in an ideal location for exploring Windermere and Bowness, just a pleasant 10/15 minute walk into each. The cottage was beautifully furnished, clean and very well equipped. The beds were so comfortable we all got a great sleep and the shower was powerful and spacious. Lovely big kitchen too. The only thing missing was use of thRead moree garden, particularly as the occupants downstairs didnt appear to be using it. Other than that a wonderful stay thank you! Hide

Nice and quiet place. We stayed for a week and had no issues at all :) The road is quiet as well and there is plenty of space to park a car outside.

This property was immaculately clean and well equipped. I was concerned having read a previous review regarding lack of cleanliness, but we found it to be spotless. There was ample on-street parking available at all times. The location is good for access into Windermere and Bowness, albeit on a bit of a hill. The property adjoins a nursery, so if tRead morehe sound of toddlers hitting xylophones all afternoon is a dealbreaker, this isnt the place for you. But otherwise, a lovely, modern, stylish house.

We thought the property was ideally situated, enabling us to walk into the hills And down to the lake, Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere, as well as a bar for driving further into the Lake District. We also found the flat comfortable and relaxing.

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.
