The property

This upside-down house, with bedrooms to the ground floor and living accommodation to upstairs really is a gem within Bowness.

This aptly named retreat has magnificent views over Lake Windermere that you will not tire of during your family getaway to the Lake District.

Gaze over Windermere and take in the fresh air from the comfort of this wonderful property.

The entrance to this property brings you directly onto the first floor, the hallway leads you down to the sitting room with stunning lake views, woodburning stove and bi-fold doors that lead you onto the spectacular roof terrace – a sublime setting for a morning coffee or socialising in the evening.

The well-equipped kitchen is also located on this first floor with its own access to the roof terrace.

Downstairs there are four comfortable bedrooms and two bathroom facilities.

From the ground floor you can step outside to the enclosed garden at the end of which is a gate that leads your directly down to the village and Lake.

Set on the Eastern shore of Lake Windermere just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Bowness, you will have plenty to discover from The Lookout Lodge.

There are a host of traditional Lakeland pubs, both in the centre of the village and just a short drive into the surrounding countryside including The Wild Boar.

Take a lake cruise from Bowness Pier across to Lakeside to visit the Lakes Aquarium and from here you can also take a ride on the steam train to Haverthwaite Railway.

This is a fantastic property to discover the gems of Bowness and the surrounding areas.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
