This fabulous family residence (also a treat for several couples) offers views to Lake Windermere from its slightly elevated position, amid wonderful scenery. A private drive meanders up to the house and guarantees a little bit of exclusivity for you and your gathering. Yet, being just a short stroll from the attractions of Bowness and Lake Windermere, Woodbank is right at the heart of some of the best the region has to offer. Guests of ages will never be short of entertainment. Blending old Lakeland character with modern sophistication, Woodbank offers large bedrooms, luxurious furniture and the most wonderful dining room - perfect for sitting down to a good meal prepared in the traditional Aga! Alternatively, go al-fresco for your meals with great views from the patio and garden. Accommodation in detail: Private parking for 3 cars. Conservatory entrance with a wonderful view, entrance hall with cloakroom. Spacious, light and airy lounge with walls of windows overlooking the lake and deep-cushioned leather sofas. The dining room has beautiful views and the well-equipped kitchen is warmed through by the Aga. Upstairs are 3 beautiful bedrooms, with good views and co-coordinated linens; 1 with brand spanking new en-suite facility. There is also a luxurious main bathroom. Both have shower over bath. Outside, you have a garden and patio - furnished for meals and lazing al-fresco. Location The sophisticated Lake District village of Bowness is nestled on the eastern shores of beautiful Lake Windermere - England's largest lake. Boats peacefully come and go, the mesmerising scenery across the lake changes with the season, and the abundance of lake shore and waterborne activities will keep everybody entertained. Bowness high street is well-served with handy supermarkets, sophisticated boutique shops and a wide range of excellent eateries - all within easy reach of your chosen holiday home. The Royalty cinema plays the latest films on its 3-screens and the Old Laundry Theatre also has plenty of entertainment to offer. Outdoor lovers will enjoy having easy access to many popular Lake District walking routes. Head up to Gummers How to admire stunning views of Lake Windermere, or take the car ferry across the lake to walk around attractive Hawkshead and explore Beatrix Potter country (the author's home is close to Hawkshead in the village of Near Sawrey). Grizedale Forest is easily accessible via the car ferry, and popular walking destinations including the Langdale Valley, Coniston and Grasmere are only manageable drives away.

Rural bliss for a romantic break in the Lakes and a dream for your Lake District honeymoon. This charming Lyth Valley cottage offers outstanding views as far as the eye can see; standing only a stroll away from the village of Crosthwaite and the award-winning Punchbowl Inn. Although within the grounds of a larger residence, Highbeck Cottage offers complete privacy and shares 3 acres of scenic grounds. Step inside and you'll find traditional character with a distinctly contemporary finish, all on one level and perfect for a couple. Wake up to coffee with a view on the patio, head out for a walk in any direction, cosy up with a film on the widescreen TV, then sleep well in total peace and quiet. All this and only a short drive to lively Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere. Accommodation in detail A sweeping driveway leads to Highbeck and Highbeck Cottage, with parking for one car outside. Enter via porch for walking clobber, hallway with utility room and 2nd WC. Kitchen / diner well-equipped for two, overlooking the garden. The cosy lounge is full of character with exposed beams, electric 'woodburning' stove for ease and patio doors to the garden and patio area. A truly romantic king-size bedroom overlooks the Lyth Valley from its picture window, and is served by a luxurious en-suite shower room. Location This romantic rural Lake District cottage lies only a stroll from the small village of Crosthwaite, in the north of the Lyth Valley and only a short drive from Bowness and Lake Windermere. The Lyth Valley is lush and laid back, riddled with picturesque walking and cycling routes and renowned as a peaceful landscape compared to busier Lake District self-catering destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside. The valley is set apart from Lake Windermere by a row of lower level fells, with plenty of opportunities to climb up high and soak up stunning lake views. You'll never be too far from attractions, evening entertainment and sophisticated shopping in Bowness village, with Windermere Golf Club also nearby. Also from Bowness, Windermere Lake Cruises depart to Ambleside and Lakeside. The Lyth Valley is also renowned for its scattering of high-class country pub restaurants, one of which stands only a stroll away from Highbeck Cottage. The Punchbowl Inn is one of the most widely-acclaimed Lake District gastropubs, nestling alongside a pretty old church.  …see more

Within a highly individual converted church outbuilding, The Sanctuary incorporates modern furnishings and comfort with the utmost style. It's a treat for one or two couples, or families, looking for something a little bit different in this popular Lakeland village. Overlooking the vast churchyard through patio doors, and with a Gothic stair window, this bolt hole is true to its original character. You'll love sleeping as late as you like in the comfortable depths of the bedrooms. Take breakfast in the kitchen or sip coffee on the patio while deciding what to do with your day. Explore the Lakes, stroll to the lake shore and later, swap stories of your adventures around a stylish contemporary glass dining table - or perhaps sample one of the restaurants within strolling distance?

Enter to the luxurious open plan lounge / dining room, which is divided by a breakfast bar from the William Ball kitchen, equipped with dishwasher, electric oven and halogen hob. In the living room inviting leather sofas stretch out in front of the TV/DVD and doors lead to patio - ideal for summer drinks.

Windermere village is well equipped if you want to eat in or out. You'll be able to stock up on quality fresh produce at the high class Booths supermarket. The headquarters of Lakeland Ltd is a mecca for cooks and the high street offers a wide range of smaller local shops.

You'll find tasty cafes for long, lazy breakfasts and excellent Lake District restaurants such as Jerichos. The A591 provides easy access to many of the Lake District's most famous walking spots, but there are also a few lovely strolls to enjoy around Windermere village. A short walk up Orrest Head affords fabulous views to Lake Windermere and is a must during your stay. The nearby village of Staveley is the starting point for stunning walking and mountain biking in the Kentmere Valley.
