  • "Second stay at Upper Lodge this year."

    Ticks every box! Spacious clean cottage, well equipped kitchen, Very comfortable beds, smart TV and good wifi! The cottage was warm, but also has a log fire for extra cosy evenings. Quiet location. Secure garden for the dogs, fantastic to have a warm utility room given it was a wet week.

  • "Upper Lodge is lovely and peaceful."

    We had small frogs appear when it rained and one evening we seemed to be surrounded by pheasants. Six at the front, about nine on the back garden and another five around the side. We put the wheelie bin roadside on Monday evening as stated on the Heart of the Lakes poster in the kitchen but it didn't actually get emptied until Thursday morning. Guessing the bin day has changed. Despite the rain we had a fantastic time and couldn't fault the cottage whatsoever.

  • "Too far from Bowness to be walkable, very windy road with poor or no footpath."

    Shower cubicle door too narrow. Very quite and beautiful location. Pity about the weather.

The property

Enjoying a serene countryside location just outside the town of Bowness-on-Windermere, lies this character abode, Upper Lodge.

Set over the ground-floor, this charming retreat is a lovely hideaway for families looking to relax and explore the wonderful Lake District National Park.

The chef of the group can take charge of meals in the well-equipped kitchen, fitted with a host of modern appliances such as the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and even a dishwasher, so you won’t have to lift a finger when it comes to washing up!

There is also a handy utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, so you really do have it all at Upper Lodge!

Move into the sumptuous lounge, where you can rest on the armchair or delightful sofa, taking a moment to reflect on the day, read a book from the shelf or enjoy catch up on the Smart TV, all while the subtle crackle of the woodburner puts you at ease.

Retreat to one of three delightful bedrooms, all of which have been furnished in a country house style, and some of them benefiting from dual aspect windows which overlook the surrounding countryside.

There is also a shower room and bathroom, so you can decide how best to prepare for the day.

Admire the tranquil location with the lawned garden, complete with seating areas where you can sip on your morning coffee before embarking on a day’s adventure.

Venture into the vibrant town of Bowness, home to a wealth of amenities, from quirky independent shops to more familiar high street names, friendly pubs and charming cafes, all within walking distance.

While here, you must visit the Lakeland attractions of Beatrix Potter, including the iconic World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and Hill Top House, the home of the famous children’s author.

If watersports is your thing then you’re in luck – Lake Windermere provides a wide selection of watersport activities like boat trips, sailing, canoeing, paddleboarding and waterskiing, among exceptional views of the lake, or you can hop a steamer over to Lakeside and Ambleside and explore more attractions.

Upper Lodge is a wonderful base for a family getaway to the Lakelands, all-year-round.

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