    Mr Bolton

    “Property was ideally located to all local amenities and the lake, a spacious house with almost everything you need.”

    Just a couple of little hitches, sign on door asking you to remove outdoor shoes which is fair enough but upon entering there was grass on the wooden floor and carpets were in need of a good hoovering. Not enough glasses of equal size, just needs a pack of eight tumblers. My biggest concern was the upstairs shower, the temperature control was broken so you had a scalding shower, this had already been commented on in the guest book by previous guests and this should be made a priority to be ...

    Just a couple of little hitches, sign on door asking you to remove outdoor shoes which is fair enough but upon entering there was grass on the wooden floor and carpets were in need of a good hoovering. Not enough glasses of equal size, just needs a pack of eight tumblers. My biggest concern was the upstairs shower, the temperature control was broken so you had a scalding shower, this had already been commented on in the guest book by previous guests and this should be made a priority to be fixed. But I can tell you there were eight adults in the property and we all had a wonderful time and providing the shower is fixed we would definitely stay there again, the complimentary bottle of wine went down a treat.

The cottage

A lovely mid-terrace townhouse superbly located within a short distance of the bustling village of Bowness-on-Windermere and just yards from Lake Windermere itself.

Comfortably appointed throughout, this Windermere cottage is perfect for families or friends who wish to enjoy time together exploring this beautiful part of the Lake District.

This Windermere cottage has four bedrooms, with the ground floor room having the benefit of an adjacent shower room.

The first floor sitting room has a balcony giving distant views of the Lake District Fells and glimpses of Lake Windermere.

The dining room also has a small balcony and outside there is a small patio, so no matter what time of day, you can sit with a refreshing drink to plan your Lake District tour.

Bowness is just a short walk away and has a great selection of cafes and restaurants, plus some interesting shops and galleries.

From The Glebe, an area of parkland adjacent to this Windermere townhouse, you can embark on the Steamer and cruise down to the Aquarium of the Lakes.

From Lakeside you can then link up with the Lakeside & Haverthwaite steam railway, which frequently runs special events when famous engines, including Thomas the Tank, give rides to delighted fans.

A car ferry also crosses over Lake Windermere from Bowness to give easy access to the Western side of the lake to explore the pretty villages of Hawkshead and Near and Far Sawrey where Beatrix Potter wrote Peter Rabbit.

This Windermere cottage can be enjoyed at any time of the year with a host of attractions and activities available nearby.
