The property

An immaculately-presented lodge situated on the popular Fallbarrow Holiday Park on the fringe of Bowness-on-Windermere.

This modern, New England-style lodge rests directly on the lake shore and provides guests with sublime views across Lake Windermere, making it the perfect choice for those seeking a touch of luxury or a romantic retreat.

Tucked away in a quiet area of the park, this beautiful Windermere lodge has a king-size double bedroom with an en-suite, along with a double and a twin, a contemporary shower room and a bright open plan living area.

Outside, the large decking to the front and side provides direct access to a private beach area, perfect for swimming, canoeing and fishing, and is also a splendid sun trap for much of the day; a tranquil space offering the chance to watch boats bob by under the shadow of the surrounding mountains, a perfect addition for an alfresco feast with friends and family.

Facilities on this fantastic site include a restaurant, pub with beer garden, shop and deli, and a children's play area.

Bowness offers something for everyone, from enticing tourist attractions to shops and boutiques, restaurant and bars.

Guests seeking to explore the water may wish to sail some of the lake’s 10 miles, or try water skiing, canoeing or kayaking.

Those lacking sturdy sea legs can enjoy Windermere’s 18-hole golf course, the perfect destination to while away a few hours, plus there are many walking paths, including the Dales Way, and cycling routes available to explore locally.

A short drive will take you to the traditional towns of Windermere and Ambleside, offering a selection of shops and eateries, or visit The Armitt, a small museum, library and gallery with interesting collections, which offers the story of the area through the ages.

Guest Reviews


    • “The most breathtaking place I have ever stayed”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is the best place I have ever stayed. I run one of the most luxurious self-catering accommodation in the UK and for me to say this place is better is saying something. You will not get a better view anywhere in the UK. Sitting in your lounge right on the shoreline of Windermere was simply breathtaking.the lodge was stunning with everything you could need and we loved the fact it was secluded from the rest of the park yet only a few minutes walk to Bowness. I stay in Bowness once a month and stayed in all the top hotels, this place is by far the best and when you divide the cost between the 3 bedrooms it works out as one of cheapest places to stay which is mad as it's the best. Can't recommend highly enough to anyone you, must stay and see for yourself.”

    • “We stayed as a family in a luxurious and beautifully maintained lodge literally on the edge of Lake Windermere. The children played on the beach at the side of the Lodge and my father spent all day sitting on the decking admiring the view. He never stopped talking about seeing the flying swans, ducklings and beautiful changing scenery. It is a short walk into Bowness which is a lovely place to wander around and shop. There are lots of lovely small retailers and plenty of places to stop for coffee or to eat. The Lodge is not overlooked and no one can walk past and look in so it was lovely to just sit and look out drinking a glass of wine We spent just 5 days there but felt we had spent much longer because we arrived back home feeling we had been away ages and very relaxed and refreshed”
