The property

Located two miles from Bowness this semi detached property has an enviable location on the shores of Lake Windermere.

Extensive gardens lead down to your own lake frontage with stunning views of the lake and distant fells from almost every room.

The front hallway leads to the very well equipped kitchen/dining room where you can enjoy family meals whilst drinking in the fantastic views. Next is a lovely downstairs double bedroom with adjacent family bathroom with shower over bath and w.c.

Making this an excellent choice for those with limited mobility. Upstairs is the cosy sitting room with dual aspect windows where you can watch the passing sailing boats and lake cruisers. One twin and one double bedroom, both with Lake and mountain views together with another family bathroom with w.c.

Outside there is a large garden with a woodland pathway running down steeply to the Lake shore.

A balcony area with table and chairs at the rear of the property is ideal for enjoying the views whilst enjoying an al fresco meal.  A large parking area provides parking for several cars.

Bowness with its plentiful pubs, restaurants and shops is only two miles away and the Beech Hill hotel is nearby providing a restaurant and bar.

To the South is fell foot park and for the more energetic, Gummers How for spectacular lake views.  The Lakeside and Haverthwaite steam railway, Lakeside Aquarium and Lakeland Motor museum are all just a short drive away the bottom of the lake.

A perfect hideaway for those who would love their own oasis on the lake, with easy access to Bowness and the wonderful Lake District beyond.
