  • “Greenstyles was the most perfect property and getaway, it was a real home from home that was spotlessly clean and exceeded expectation.”

    It is beautifully decorated and the photos really don’t do it justice. It is quiet in a rural setting with amazing walks from the doorstep and yet only minutes from the shops and town. It is really well equipped with everything you need and even had sharp knives which from experience is rare in a rental property.

You really won’t find anything better, we can’t wait to return.

The property

Nestled just on the outskirts of Bowness (yet set in rolling fields and fells), Greenstyles is a picture-perfect traditional Lakeland cottage full of charm, with great views of the fells and glimpses of Lake Windermere.

As you step into the cottage through the solid wooden front door, there’s a spacious hallway, with sitting room to the right and the light and bright kitchen/dining room to the left.

The well-equipped kitchen with top quality appliances has everything you need to cook up that hearty breakfast or celebration meal.

Walk through the arch into the dining room where you can all gather and relax, socialise and celebrate.

Light streams in through a wall of fell-view windows, where a glazed stable style door takes you to the outside space, ideal for mid-summer meals alfresco.

Across the hall is the sitting room with feature rustic beams and a wood burning stove.

Relax in the comfy sofas or window seats watching TV or reading.

Glazed double doors lead from here through into the garden room, with access to the large, mature garden.

A choice of sofas awaits you, perfect for afternoon tea or indeed just relaxing and reading the paper.

Windows on three sides provide views of the surrounding fields and fells.

On the ground floor is a good-sized utility room with washing machine and drier, iron and ironing board, and heated towel rail to enable you to dry any wet coats.

Upstairs are 3 pretty cottage bedrooms: super king size, King size (can be made into twins if needed) and single, all with views.

These rooms are complemented by a large, smart family bathroom with fabulous uninterrupted views of the lake and the fells, a double walk-in shower, vanity unit with twin basins and WC.

To the rear of the cottage is the fabulous, large garden with an extensive lawned area, mature trees and bushes; great for exploring and enjoying the views.

An area with garden furniture is a great place to have breakfast in the morning on a sunny day or indeed in the evening.

A must for those clear days not to mention a glass or two in the evening gazing at the stars. Greenstyles is in a quiet rural location, just 2 miles away from the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere, the popular Lake District holiday location, nestling on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere and alive with all the boating activities of Bowness Bay.

Enjoy great shops, tempting cafes, excellent Lake District restaurants, cosy traditional pubs, contemporary bars or stroll to the pier to hop on a Windermere Lake Cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside - a lovely way to enjoy Lake Windermere at any time of year.

Family attractions in Bowness include the award-winning World of Beatrix Potter attraction - a favourite with the kids.

You'll also find mini golf and tennis near the lake shore, and Windermere Golf Club just a few minutes' drive out of the village.

There are a wide range of cafes and restaurants in Bowness, to suit all tastes and budgets, from top quality Fish & Chips to fine dining.

Bowness also has a mainstream cinema and the Old Laundry Theatre
