Perfectly placed for making the most of both Windermere Village and the lake itself, this single-storey property is a welcome retreat to return to after busy days spent exploring on foot, bicycle, or boat.
Right in the heart of the Lake District National Park and surrounded by spectacular scenery, Windermere is a popular base from which to explore this much-celebrated area. A vibrant village, Windermere is home to an array of independent shops, bars and eateries for enjoying a bite to eat before strolling home. Meanwhile, just 1 mile down the road, Bowness-on-Windermere offers a further choice of amenities and attractions including the World of Beatrix Potter and is also the starting point for memorable trips out on the lake. Catch a car ferry over to Hawkshead, 6 miles away, to explore the literary heritage of the area, before stopping in at Hill Top, Beatrix Potter’s carefully preserved home, just 4 miles away.
Inside, this single-storey property has been finished with tasteful neutral tones and cosy soft furnishings to create a home from home feel throughout. Cook and dine in the bright and airy kitchen, which is fitted with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and dining table large enough to study maps and guidebooks ahead of another action-packed day. Off the kitchen, a deep step leads down into a spacious boot room, which houses the washing machine, tumble dryer and rainy day cupboard full of DVDs, books and games. This is also a useful space for drying wet boots and coats overnight. At the end of a long day, relax and unwind in the spacious lounge, which has an open fire for chilly evenings, TV with soundbar and even an upright piano for musical nights. This property boasts two well-presented bedrooms, one king-size with an elegant metal-framed bed, vintage desk and en-suite shower room and one twin bedroom with access to the family bathroom, which has a shower over the bath.
Outside, a sunny tiered seating area with a picnic bench enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. There is private off-road parking for one car.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
