  • “A lovely property in a great area!”

    Lots to see and do, all within walking distance. The house is large, clean, warm and comfortable. Would definitely stay there again and book through Sky Cottages.

The property

A lovely traditional Victorian stone-built mid-terrace cottage with the benefit of luxury spa membership and which lies conveniently between Bowness and Windermere in the Lake District.

A perfect location for friends and families wishing to explore this beautiful part of the country.

This spacious property set over four floors, is a comfortable, well-equipped and beautifully presented property.

Guests will be certain to appreciate the generous and flexible accommodation.

Enter through the front door and once inside this delightful cottage you will be able to relax in the comfortable sitting room with ample seating and enjoy your meals in the attractive dining room.

There is a well-equipped kitchen and a basement which houses the washing machine and dryer and extra fridge and freezer.

There are four bedrooms, two of which are on the first floor and they are a king-size double with en-suite and a twin bedroom, together with family bathroom.

On the second floor there is a further double bedroom with en-suite shower and a 2' 6" twin bedroom, together with cloakroom.

From the dining room there is a very useful boot room leading out to a well lit rear enclosed patio with furniture which gets the sun during the day and is a lovely place to have breakfast or lunch outside on a warm day.

From here you can also access the off road rear parking via steps up from the patio.

There is also a small patio with furniture at the front of the property, where it is perfect to enjoy a glass of wine in the early evening sun.

Gillercombe has leisure club membership at The Lakes Hotel & Spa in Bowness on Windermere where up to 8 guests can go between 8am and 3:00pm.

The hotel provides a luxury spa, various treatments, a pool, sauna and steam room.

There is also a poolside bar and a traditional pub open daily.

Just a short walk from the cottage are the vibrant towns of Bowness and Windermere, both with a vast array of shops, pubs and restaurants to suit all tastes.

Why not take a boat trip or hire a boat, both of which are available from Bowness, Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside?
