    “The cottage was very well equipped ...”
    The cottage was very well equipped and way exceeded our expectations. Very warm and cosy, central position with very good extras for young children. Quiet at night and very good internal layout. Made an excellent cottage for my son, daughter, grandchildren and self to visit the area again but in winter time. The wifi was excellent for my son to work Thank you

The property

This welcoming, end-terrace slate cottage is situated in a quiet location, within a short stroll to excellent restaurants and shops in the bustling town of Windermere, 1.2 miles from the lakeside town of Bowness.

Comfortably appointed and furnished to provide cosy accommodation, this lovely cottage is ideal for a family break in the beautiful Lake District National Park.

Set over two floors, the living areas, including the kitchen, as well as one of the bedrooms are on the lower ground floor, whilst two further spacious bedrooms and the bathroom are on the ground floor.

The sitting room has soft sofas to snuggle down into in front of the cosy woodburning stove and this room also has a dining area, or on a sunny day you may wish to venture outside and enjoy a meal on the enclosed patio.

Bowness village has some interesting shops and galleries to explore, as well as the World of Beatrix Potter, where younger guests will be enthralled to meet Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny!

On a sunny day, an afternoon on The Glebe on the shores of Lake Windermere is a delightful place to be as you watch the steamers depart to cruise up the lake to Ambleside and Lakeside.

You can also enjoy a stroll through Queens Park, which is just a minute’s walk away.

This delightful cottage is superbly placed to explore the pretty villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Hawkshead, and there are numerous other excellent attractions in the area.
