Situated on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District, these four Bowness self-catering apartments are located on a family-run farm estate in tranquil and relaxing surrounds. These delightful Bowness holiday apartments have been carefully created from old farm buildings – some parts of the adjoining building dating back to 1691 – and each has been comfortably furnished and decorated, retaining character and charm. Positioned in spacious grounds, each of these Bowness self-catering apartments has outdoor seating and enjoys shared use of all the lawned and terraced areas surrounding them, as well as the opportunity for walks on the farmland or into Bowness-on-Windermere. With a variety of accommodation across these four Bowness holiday apartments, up to 15 guests can be accommodated. These Bowness self-catering apartments are in a superb holiday location, where you can watch the wildlife including deer, red squirrels and a host of birds, or stroll through the adjacent fields on one of the many footpaths. For those wishing to escape into quiet and solitude, a 20 minute walk up Brant Fell will reward you with wonderful views out over Windermere Lake to the Coniston Fells and the central heights of the Lake District. Guests at these holiday apartments may choose to stroll down to Bowness-on-Windermere to take a pleasure cruiser up the lake to Ambleside or south to Lakeside. A car ferry runs to the far side of the lake, taking visitors to Sawrey and Hawkshead to explore the home of Beatrix Potter at NT Hilltop.
