The property

Windermere 0.5 miles.

You really cannot be in a better location to enjoy the Lake District with Lake Windermere just a few minutes’ walk from this charming terraced bungalow, which boasts superb views across the lake to the beautiful Langdale Pikes.

The cottage enjoys shared access to the lake via a private lane which leads to the lake shore and a jetty; what a place to enjoy a picnic or the sun setting.

This super cottage is an ideal base for couples and small families who wish to enjoy the excellent local amenities but still have the peaceful and tranquil location to return to every day.

There are two bedrooms and an open plan living area with a kitchen and dining area.

The living area has lovely views across the communal lawns to Lake Windermere and outside there is a bench where you can enjoy the peaceful location and watch the Windermere Steamer as it cruises gently by.

Visit the local towns of Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere or Ambleside and enjoy browsing in the local shops and galleries.

Head up to Troutbeck and travel up the Kirkstone Pass to visit Ullswater, stopping off at the Kirkstone Pass Inn for some refreshments.

Wherever you go you can be sure the stunning landscape will leave you feeling relaxed.

This is a great cottage which makes a good base for exploring this beautiful area at any time of the year.
