The property

Resting away from the bustling centre of Windermere is this quaint terraced property, Walker's Cottage, surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Lake District National Park.

Look forward to calling this lovely house home.

Discover the delights of picturesque Windermere town, only a 10 minute walk away, and Bowness only 20 minutes.

A perfect base to be able to enjoy the surrounding mountain fells and majestic lakes of the National Park with all of your loved ones around you.

After an adventure-filled afternoon, look forward to coming back to the property and being welcomed into the spacious sitting room, where two plush sofas surround the TV and the gas log burner, which offers a gentle warmth during the colder months.

When you feel like trying your hand at a local delicacy or a family-favourite recipe, head into the kitchen, where a range of quality appliances are awaiting the chef of the group to rustle up something delicious.

The property also comes with a handy dishwasher, and washer/ dryer, and large fridge/freezer.

From here, venture up the stairs to find the family bathroom, boasting a shower over bath and the master bedroom, home to a plush king-size bed and a sleek en-suite shower room.

Continue up the stairs to the second-floor, where you will find a good sized twin bedroom and a single bedroom with views over the fells.

To the exterior is ample road-side parking and a cosy front garden, where table and chairs offer a spot for alfresco dining during a sunny afternoon.

At the back of the property there is a secure private yard with a washing line and rear access for bikes if needed.

For the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, take a short walk into the centre of Windermere, where you will be spoilt for choice by the selection of cafés, pubs and restaurants that are awaiting, as well as a number of shops for picking up all essentials and gifts.

There is also a corner shop just a 2 minute walk away for your convenience.Take one of the many picturesque walks down to Bowness and discover the largest lake within the National Park by climbing on board the Windermere Lake Cruise, offering a circular voyage whilst soaking up the views of the impressive mountains, the secluded bays and the wooded islands.

Stop off at the many piers such as Waterhead for Ambleside, Brockhole, Fell Foot and catch the steam train from Lakeside, or hire your own boat and enjoy discovering the lake at your own pace.Alternatively, brush up on the local history by visiting the World of Beatrix Potter before heading to the National Trust owned Hill Top, which was the former farmhouse of Beatrix Potter.For those feeling more adventurous, choose to walk the many mountain peaks and fells, mountain biking in Grizedale Forest Park or if you are feeling brave, have a go at Go Ape Treetop Challenge, or Keswick Adventure Centre.

For keen golfers you will find beautiful Windermere Golf Club only 1.5 mile away, and just round the corner from the house you have Queen’s Park for tennis courts, playing fields, and a children’s playground.

Once you have completed these, visit the beautiful villages of Grasmere, Hawkshead, Coniston, and Keswick, for their wonderful selection of gift shops, pubs, and cafes.

Be sure to bring your loved ones for a fun-filled holiday to Walker's Cottage.
