The property

Resting on the southernmost tip of the Lake District, on the estuary where the River Kent enters Morecambe Bay, is this single-storey holiday home for two in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This tranquil location with breath-taking views of the estuary from every room, offers couples just the romantic break they desire at Shady Bowers.

On entrance, you will come to a modern, open-plan living space with charming exposed stonework and a stunning dining area with picture perfect views.

Cook up a delicious meal for your loved one in the modern kitchen and crack open a bottle of wine while you discuss plans for your trip.

It's fully equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine and a fabulous Smeg gas range cooker taking centre stage and ready to assist each mealtime.

Move through to the lounge and relax among the peace and quiet with the bright interior uplifting your mood.

Retire to the king-size double bedroom at the end of an adventurous day and in the morning, you can wake to inspiring views from the terrace balcony.

Summer evenings will welcome a cool breeze as you throw open the patio doors and make the most of this superb experience.

Over in the distance, you can see as far as the Lakeland fells; a beautiful and romantic spot to enjoy a drink in an evening.

Arnside is a short stroll away with a variety of shops, cafes and pubs.

Arnside Knott, owned by the National Trust, overlooks this pretty village and the views from its summit are breath-taking.

With numerous walks from the front door, there’s something for everyone, from a flat stroll along the beach, to a more energetic hike up The Knott and beyond.

The whole of the Lake District beckons with country walks, waterside picnics, historic attractions and so much more.

Closer to home is Holgates Leisure pool and gym, Wildlife Oasis and Sizergh Castle (NT) and Levens Hall.

With excellent rail links in the village, why not visit the internationally renowned Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve, while further afield you have Grange-Over-Sands, Ulverston or Lancaster with their shops, castles, museums and galleries.

You may even decide to arrive by rail – the property is only a 15-minute walk from the station.

This top-quality accommodation enjoys a glorious position and provides a very special experience.

About the location


Kendal 10 miles; Windermere 17 miles.

Arnside is situated on the southernmost tip of the Lake District in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where low limestone hills, marshy plains and deciduous woodlands characterise the surrounding land. This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past. The beautiful pier and port areas of the village offer stunning views across the Kent Estuary, as well as providing an enduring reminder of Arnside's illustrious history. To the south of the village are the 15th century Pele Towers, which were constructed to defend against the marauding Scots. The local surrounding area is a nature lover's paradise with stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks through countryside alive with rare plants, trees and wildlife. The internationally renowned Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve is also just one mile away. Guided walks across the Kent Estuary are available, showing the full splendour of the shore and surrounding area. Within easy touring distance are the Lake District and Lune Valley, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.
