  • "A wonderful property in an ideal location to visit the lakes."

    A short walk from Bowness was great for visiting the local pubs, cafes and shops. The house itself was perfect for 8 adults with everything you could need and with amazing views of the lakes. Couldn't recommend Brantlea enough and hope to return there soon

  • "Lovely home, absolutely spotless, fantastic views from the Lounge and especially the Jacuzzi and summer room area."

    Location also excellent, with 5 mins walk into Bowness Centre, although very steep access drive leading up to the property especially with a pram and small children Overall, excellent home & excellent stay

  • "The property was exceptionally clean and the decor was to the highest standard seen with a fully stocked kitchen of equipment and multiple fridges."

    The steep garden won’t appeal to everyone but the view and the hot tub facilities at the top are definitely worth it. The property is in a quiet position at the end of a cul de sac so benefits from no passing traffic . We had a fantastic stay.

    The house is extremely well equipped & beautifully presented. The hot tub added a lovely touch & was enjoyed by all the family. Thanks to the owner who ensured we had everything we needed - right down to the Xmas tree. It was a special way to spend a week over Christmas & we would love to return.

  • "We had a very wet week in the Lakes, and with a dog that was recovering from major surgery, we couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay for some R&R."

    Everything had been thoroughly considered and nothing overlooked. The only thing that didn’t suit us this time was all of the garden area was on a step slope with steep steps. Without a “wonky” dog though, that would’ve been fine.

The property

Settled in a desirable residential area, a short walk from the centre of the bustling town of Bowness-on-Windermere, rests this spectacular four-bedroom detached holiday home, Brantlea.

Framing views across the glistening waters of Lake Windermere towards the distant fells beyond and enjoying a sociable open-plan layout, Brantlea is a wonderful base for a group celebration to the lakes.

A spacious driveway with parking for four greets you at the foot of this lovely dwelling, making unloading your belongings and making yourself at home an easy task.

Kick off your muddy boots and remove any walking gear as you step over the threshold and enter into the hallway, where a handy ground-floor shower room can be found set across the way, ideal for freshening up following a day of adventure.

Climb the stairs to the first floor to discover the open-plan living space, flooded with natural light welcomed in through the floor-to-ceiling windows and thoughtfully laid out with a sumptuous corner sofa gathered in front of a Smart TV and warming flame-effect fire, enticing you to snuggle up and enjoy a blockbuster classic.

The contemporary kitchen is well-equipped with all of the amenities necessary to whip up delectable dishes, whilst the barbecue on the balcony is perfect for a spot of alfresco dining with a spectacular backdrop of the surrounding greenery.

For a real touch of elegance, enjoy a dip in the bubbling hot tub under a canopy of stars.

When sleep calls, you'll find two bedrooms on the ground-floor, each boasting a zip/link super-king-size, ideal for couples, families and friends sharing, whilst two king-size rooms are settled on the first floor, each benefiting from access to their own en-suite.

In the morning, enjoy the short stroll to Haystacks Cafe, set moments away from your doorstep, where you can fuel the days excursions with a hearty breakfast before heading to the local convenience store to stock up on energizing treats!

The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction is a must-see whilst you're in the area, an interactive exhibition telling the fascinating story of Potter's writing, whilst those looking for a spot of adventure can try their hand at kayaking or paddleboarding with expert tuition available on the waters of Lake Windermere.

Board the passenger ferry and explore more of your picture-perfect surroundings with a day trip to Ambleside, Brockhole or Lakeside, or head off on foot along the Dales Way, a 78-mile footpath linking West Yorkshire to Cumbria.

The peaks of Helvellyn and Scafell Pike are set within easy reach, each offering a challenging pursuit to the summit, whilst the glistening waters of Stock Ghyll Force and the man-made Rydal Cave offer unrivaled scenery closer to home.

Whisk your loved ones away on an unforgettable retreat to Brantlea.

Please note: the ziplink beds will be made as superking by default, if you require twin please advise before arrival, thank you
