The property

Nestled in a fantastic location between the bustling towns of Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria is The Kingfisher.

This wonderful, ground-floor apartment benefits from a welcoming interior completed by a sumptuous king-size bed, an enclosed rear garden with furniture and an ideal setting close to local amenities and a whole host of attractions to suit all tastes; the perfect choice for couples or small families looking to explore the wonders of Cumbria.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the kitchen/sitting room where you can unwind on the plush sofa in front of the Smart TV while your partner pampers you with a delicious meal prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen.

Sample their culinary creations in the conservatory or if the sun is shining step outside to indulge in an alfresco affair upon the garden furniture.

When stars fill the sky overhead, head back inside to wash off the day’s adventures in the shower room before sloping off to sleep in the king-size bed.

During the day venture into the heart of Windermere where you can stock up on all of your self-catering essentials at local stores or supermarkets before enjoying date night at The Brookside Inn, The Crafty Baa or The Queens Hotel.

Take a short walk down to the edge of the lake where you can take to the water on leisurely boat trips, a unique way to take in the breath-taking sites; or try your hand at something more adventurous such as kayaking and paddle boarding!

Other notable nearby attractions include the Windermere Jetty Museum, the World of Beatrix Potter and the charming Holehird Gardens.

Walking and hiking is also in abundance; some of the many trails woven through the national park including Orrest Head, Coniston Old Man and Wansfell Peak or through iconic lake towns including Amble and Grasmere, each offering their own unique attractions.

All this and more awaits at The Kingfisher!

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
