The property

A traditional stone townhouse near the heart of Windermere, Walkers Rest has shops, restaurants and Lake District attractions not far from its front door.

Walkers Rest is a roomy townhouse that is ideal for families or small groups of friends who want to be both centrally located for Windermere town and able to enjoy the tranquillity of the Lake District.

The cottage can sleep up to six people and offers a warm welcome for up to two dogs.

In the cosy living room, guests can enjoy watching TV while relaxing on a comfortable leather sofa, or watching the world go by from the window seat.

The spacious kitchen/diner offers everything you could need during your self catering break, including a Rangemaster cooker and TV.

There are two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, as well as two well appointed bathrooms - a downstairs bathroom and the family bathroom upstairs, featuring a shower with a contemporary and invigorating large rain head fitting.

Accessed through patio doors from the kitchen/diner, outside you’ll find a private courtyard with patio furniture.

There’s off street parking for one small car.

While Windermere town has plenty of shops and restaurants, a little more locally you’ll find a small supermarket and a village high street full of independent shops and restaurants.

Further afield, you’ll find the town of Bowness, and with Windermere lake just twenty minutes’ walk from your door, you can enjoy a lake cruise or hire a rowing boat to make the most of the picturesque scenery.

The perfect base for your Windermere stay, mix modern style with traditional Lake District living at Walkers Rest at any time of year.

About the location


Windermere Train Station 1.5 miles: Ambleside 5 miles; Kendal 7 miles.

The vibrant twin towns of Bowness and Windermere hold enduring appeal for visitors to the Lake District National Park, with each providing a range of nearby attractions, amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. A variety of boat trips and boat hire are available from Windermere Lake Cruises in Bowness to Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside (at the southern end of the lake where the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are situated). The World of Beatrix Potter attraction and the Old Laundry theatre are 1.5 miles away. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is a 30-minute walk to enjoy the spectacular panorama of far-reaching views over the lake and surrounding fells. Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake. The area is ideally situated for exploring all that this region has to offer, whether by foot, bike, car, railway or bus; and is within easy reach of attractions such as the spectacular Langdales, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park, with its delightful walks and famous outdoor sculptures, mountain biking and “Go-Ape” adventure park, Ullswater, Kendal, Keswick, stone circles, Roman forts and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
