The property

Bowness-on-Windermere 1 mile.

The Studio at Lickbarrow Lodge gives guests a unique opportunity to stay in a country house designed and built during the Arts and Crafts era, situated in the heart of the Lake District National Park, on the edge of the village of Bowness-on-Windermere.

Luxuriously appointed to provide compact but beautiful accommodation, this Bowness-on-Windermere cottage is perfect for couples wishing to stay somewhere extra special but still have access to all the amenities available in Bowness-on-Windermere, just a 25 minute walk via the Dalesway footpath.

The little extras included by the owners - fluffy bathrobes and towels, chocolates and toiletries - add to the charm of this splendid studio.

The ground floor accommodation in this Bowness cottage has been thoughtfully appointed whilst maintaining the simple design and fine craftsmanship of the house.

There is an open plan living area including a double bed, mini-kitchen, dining table and sitting area.

A woodburning stove provides additional heating and a cosy focal point, while French doors open to an enclosed private courtyard, which catches the afternoon and evening sun.

Set within 5 acres of woodland there is plenty of space to wander through the grounds and discover hidden pathways and secluded glades.

The garden has views of Coniston Old Man, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and the Langdale Pikes and, just a short walk away, there are local viewpoints offering magnificent Lakeland panoramas and stunning mountain sunsets.

Many guests like to stroll down to Bowness-on-Windermere on a fine evening, enjoy the local restaurants and then take a short taxi ride back.

Guests can take the Lakeland Steamer and cruise up Lake Windermere to Ambleside or down to Lakeside and the Haverthwaite steam railway.

The owner is a local guide and provides lots of maps, guides and route-cards for the best Lakeland walks and tours by car.
