  • "No.4 High Lake was very comfortable and my stay there was very satisfactory."

    Most important to me is cleanliness, which is even more important than facilities, and on this point I am pleased to say the accommodation was spotless and presented in an immaculate manner. Also the facilities were first class. I wonder whether the cleaners reported back to you as to how they found the property after I left, maybe they thought cleaners had already been in before them. !

The property

Contemporary luxury in this charming South Lakes hot-spot!

High Lake is a well-appointed and well-equipped gem of flat in the beating heart of Bowness, yet quietly situated off the main thoroughfares to give you the peace you need to get the very best out of your adventures.

The Lakes await in this stylish little nest for four! Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the most sought-after locales in the Lake District, and with Lake Windermere frontage, a bubbling social scene, mouth-watering eateries, and endless attractions, it's easy to see why.

High Lake offers that perfect and elusive blend of convenient centrality and serene seclusion, making it a such a highly coveted holiday escape. The shared garden lets you sit out and enjoy the sunshine at home, while a short stroll takes you to the cafes, shops and attractive activities of this most popular of Lakes villages.

You can comfortably ditch your car and wander the winding streets here, get out onto the hills beyond, board the steamer boats that cruise the lake from Bowness Bay, or use the excellent public transport connections on your doorstep.

We'd recommend a tour of the region with Mountain Goat, a minibus company based in adjacent Windermere village. At home, the solid beech wood tones of the carefully crafted kitchen whisper the quality of this companionable apartment, as do the well furnished bedrooms and the caring comforts of the lounge, where you'll love to sink into sumptuous leather sofas and watch films together on the large screen television.

It's particularly lovely to sit at the little table by the window with the sun streaming through for pre-adventure breakfasts! Your high expectations are fully satisfied at High Lake, and you're all set for a holiday to remember!

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