This property is part of the Lakelovers collection.

With hundreds of properties available, all of which are inspected and graded by the English Tourism Council, Lakelovers are sure to have a property to meet your needs.

The property

In a quiet side street, yet so handy for the buzz of Bowness & Windermere, and of course, the Lake, this lodge cottage has been beautifully refurbished to provide excellent holiday space for 4 people.

The living room is made for cosy evenings in by the wood-burner, with a bay window with views across the park.

The well-equipped kitchen/ dining room has everything you need, and the bedrooms are chic and spacious.

The front patio opens onto a park providing a great immediate extension to the green surroundings, a lovely place to enjoy a morning coffee or a sundowner.

The modern bathroom is on the ground floor, and 2 spacious bedrooms – 1 king-size, 1 double are on the first floor, with a second WC, and basin.

This convenient bolt hole is a treat at any time of year.

Windermere village centre has a delightful busy traditional feel, with lots of shops, galleries and cafes, along with a superior Booths supermarket., traditional Lakeland pubs and restaurants.

2 miles down the road, you’ll discover the bustling, cosmopolitan Bowness-on-Windermere, with shops, bars, restaurants and of course the Lake itself.

Here you enjoy lake cruises, which can take you up to Ambleside & Lakeside, hire boats and generally enjoy the fantastic views.

Jump straight onto the main A591 to head north along to Ambleside, Grasmere & Keswick.

You’ll also access the Langdale Valley and Coniston, and a scenic drive over the Kirkstone Pass, through the Troutbeck Valley drops you down to Ullswater.

You'll also enjoy lovely strolls from the doorstep of your Windermere holiday cottage – why not walk to the top of Orrest Head, where the lake views are the same today as the ones that inspired Alfred Wainwright.
