  • "Perfect location although car was parked in public car park."

    All you need for a short stay was in the apartment and fittings to a very high standard. Possibly noisy in the warm weather with windows opening directly over main pedestrian street. No information provided in the apartment which was a shame, particularly for first time visitors to the area, so make sure you do your research before arrival.

    Hi, being in the very centre of Bowness, unfortunately private parking is not available as mentioned in the introduction of our property. But the closest car park is only 2-minute walk, on Rayrigg Road, and parking fee is very reasonable for long stay. Thank you for your comments about providing info, we will leave some more brochures and maps etc in the apartment for our future guests. Property Owner

    It was great to be so near Lake Windermere, local transport and local shops. We had a fantastic time here, and would loved to have stayed longer. All amenities were available and it was a really lovely experience.

The property

Perched in the popular destination of Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, is this fantastic second-floor apartment, Bowness Central.

Enjoying a superb location within the Lake District National Park and just a stone’s throw away from Lake Windermere, Bowness Central is an idyllic choice for a couple or even two friends sharing.

Look forward to whipping up something tasty in the well-equipped and contemporary kitchen/diner, featuring well-fitted appliances and a breakfast bar, perfect for enjoying a celebratory bottle of fizz.

As the evening draws in, retire to the double bed where you can select a much-loved film on the Smart TV as the evening’s entertainment; or if you don’t want your night to end there, freshen up in the stylish shower room before heading to the local pub or restaurant.

From your doorstep you can appreciate all the Lake District has to offer, whether it’s soaking up the vistas from the viewpoints of Orrest Head and Queen Adelaide’s Hill, immersing yourself in the rich history at the Windermere Jetty Museum and the World of Beatrix Potter or trying you hand at a selection of watersports on offer at Lake Windermere.

Travelling onto Grasmere, trek through Rydal Cave, admire the breath-taking views from Rydal Mount and Gardens or tour the former home of the great poet, William Wordsworth.

Further afield you will find Kendal, home to the museums of Kendal and Quaker Tapestry, the excellent Kendal Golf Club and splendid Kendal Castle as well as an abundance of pubs, independent stores, and eateries where you can rest and recharge while exploring.
