The property

A cosy and charming semi-detached cottage, superbly located on the southerly edge of Bowness-on-Windermere, within one mile of the centre of this bustling lakeside village. This lovely Windermere cottage is also just a short distance from the ferry point crossing taking cars and passengers across the beautiful Lake Windermere to the unspoilt and tranquil western shores, the gateway to the pretty villages of Near and Far Sawrey and Hawkshead and the Grizedale Forest. Comfortably appointed throughout, this Windermere cottage is ideal for families or friends who wish to enjoy this fantastic location in the beautiful Lake District. This Windermere cottage has two bedrooms, both of which have distant views of the Lake District Fells. The cosy, open plan living area has original beams and a lovely open fire; perfect for warming up your toes after a day walking out on the fells. Outside this Windermere cottage is a pretty garden area to the front with a lawn complete with a summerhouse, ideal for a refreshing drink whilst you enjoy the sunset over the mountains in the distance. Just half a mile away from this Windermere cottage is Burnside Hotel and Parklands Country Club where guests can make use of the facilities, which include a fully-equipped gym, swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and steam room. The centre of Bowness is one mile away, where there is a host of individual shops and restaurants to enjoy. Younger children will be delighted to visit the World of Beatrix Potter, whilst The Glebe, an area of parkland overlooking the lake shore, has a children’s play area, pitch-and-putt golf, tennis courts and a quayside for lake cruises. After a round of golf why not enjoy a delicious ice cream and simply absorb the stunning scenery within the colourful bustle of this vibrant village. With plenty of water based activities also available nearby, this Windermere cottage has something for everyone at any time of the year.
