  • "A beautiful bungalow in a quiet residential cul-de-sac with views towards Lake Windermere in the distance."

    Property is very clean and luxuriously appointed. The beds were comfortable (duvets probably a little too heavy/hot for June). The shower in main bathroom could do with a shelf on which to put shower gel/shampoo/conditioner. The rainfall shower head is probably too large for the cubicle but that's just personal taste. The Smart TV in the sitting room relies on you logging in to your own Netflix and I-player accounts but the downside is the poor wi-fi - everything takes an age to "buffer" making some programmes almost impossible to watch. The guidebook does say that faster broadband should be coming to Bowness. You need to scan a QR code to get the instructions on how to operate the ovens/microwave. A lovely short break, despite the weather. I rated comfort as a 4 out of 5 as the luxury leather sofa is quite low for those of us with dodgy hips (as are the two smaller chairs). Would certainly recommend.

    Hello thank you for your review! I have ordered a shower caddy for the main bathroom room and some lighter weight duvets . According to Open Reach faster WiFi speeds are now available and hopefully BT will upgrade shortly! Thanks again Property Owner

The property

Yonder Lea is a lovely holiday bungalow nestled in the stunning town of Bowness-on-Windermere.

Situated close to the town centre and lake, and within the Lake District National Park, this abode is perfect for families and friends seeking a peaceful Cumbrian retreat.

Be welcomed into a contemporary open-plan living space with everything you need to make your stay a memorable one.

In the fully-equipped kitchen, you'll whip up delicious meals to enjoy around the dining table or out on the decking, as you peek through the trees and houses to spot Lake Windermere.

Move into the sitting area and sink into a plush sofa to catch up on your favourite shows on the Smart TV.

When the sun sets and you're ready for bed, retreat to one of four beautifully-decorated bedrooms to catch your rest in the super comfortable Hypos beds.

The next morning, wake up and freshen up with a shower ready to take on the day.

Venture out to explore the town of Bowness and you'll find The Pier for a delicious breakfast and Lake View Garden Bar for some lakeside pub dining.

Those travelling with kids can also stop at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction to say hello to Peter Rabbit and his friends.

Head up to Ambleside and visit the stunning 19th-century Wray Castle, hike up to Stock Ghyll Force for views of the beautiful waterfall and end the day with a family dinner at The Old Stamp House Restaurant.

A stone's throw away you'll find Kendal where history-lovers can stroll through Kendal Museum, art-lovers can marvel at the pieces at Abbot Hall, and nature-lovers will enjoy a hike up Paddy Lane Viewpoint.

Yonder Lea offers a memorable Cumbrian stay for all.
