  • "Great property, great location only a small issue was the table in the lounge was a little bit tight to get in and out we are small so was fine but could see this being an issue for other people."

    House had everything we needed and was well decorated, beds comfy too. Would definitely come back.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Lexington House, thank you for the welcome pack."

    The house was immaculate with everything provided for a party of 6. So relaxing, after arriving, the 'oldies ' in the party didn't use our car until the journey home. Younger members of the party (40 plus!) Enjoyed kayaking and tackling some of Langdale Pikes! Restaurants, pubs and shops all within walking distance from the house. Used boats, buses and walking boots to visit many picturesque villages! Thanks for a memorable holiday.

  • "The property was beautiful and whilst we didn’t use all the facilities, I imagine the outdoor patio in the summer would be a brilliant place to chill out."

    The location is spot on, close enough to everything Bowness and Windermere have to offer yet peaceful in its own right. The property was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

  • "My family and I spent a week here in this beautiful house to celebrate a special birthday, the brochure pictures do not do it justice."

    The location is perfect although there is a hill down to the town, but not too bad. The beds are super comfy with good quality bedding, great to flop into after a great day in stunning Bowness. We would most definitely recommend this property.

The property offers a boutique, luxurious feel.

Enter into a stylish lounge with log burning stove, sumptuous furnishings and bespoke booth dining table.

A high quality kitchen with breakfast bar and modern appliances provides the perfect space for preparing family meals.

The first of three bedrooms is on the ground floor; a king size bedroom with en-suite shower room.

Upstairs two further bedrooms can be presented as a king and super king or twin.

Both rooms are en-suite and all three bedrooms are beautifully finished with Egyptian cotton linen. Social occasions can be celebrated on outdoor sofas in a large courtyard around a welcoming fire pit.

Parking is provided for four cars. Situated in the bustling village of Bowness, Lexington House is a short stroll from an abundance of shops, bars and restaurants.

Bowness is a firm favourite with families; you’ll find the award-winning World of Beatrix Potter attraction, a traditional cinema and a pitch and putt golf course close to the lake shore.

For a day trip to nearby Ambleside without the car, step aboard a Windermere Lake Cruise.

Art lovers will adore the nearby Blackwell Arts and Crafts House; a spectacular property with beautiful gardens and exhibitions. If you’re looking for a fabulous self catering holiday in a luxurious Lakeland residence, Lexington House is the property for you.
