This elegant rural bungalow enjoys the very best of both worlds; a stunning countryside setting with fabulous views, yet only a short walk to vibrant Bowness village and the shores of Lake Windermere. The accommodation really soaks up the scenery, even if you're not planning an active holiday. Large picture windows and bright, spacious living areas lead to a dreamy conservatory. The colourful gardens include an enclosed patio and sun terrace - perfect for the al-fresco lifestyle. Maple Bank provides flexible accommodation for family, couples, friends or walking groups. One of the double bedrooms is en-suite, providing privacy for couples. One of the single bedrooms is en-suite with private external access and patio. Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars. Spacious entrance hall leading to the open plan living / dining room with fantastic views through large picture windows. Luxurious leather sofas on polished floors, open fire and access to the conservatory. The kitchen is attractive and well-equipped, with access to the garden. An inner hallway leads to 2 double bedrooms (one en-suite), a single bedroom and the house bathroom. A 2nd en-suite single bedroom is accessed externally, with a private patio. The well-kept gardens include an enclosed patio and sun terrace. Location Despite this magical countryside setting, slightly to the east of Bowness and Lake Windermere, you'll find a wealth of Lake District attractions within easy reach - not to mention the abundance of walks that begin on your doorstep. Windermere Golf Club is also only a mile from Maple Bank. In Bowness village you'll find a wide range of contemporary shops, supermarket, traditional pubs, contemporary bars and excellent Lake District restaurants. Everything you could need during a self-catering holiday in the Lake District. Bowness also boasts the Royalty Cinema and Old Laundry Theatre, and kids will love the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction in central Bowness. In Bowness Bay, powered hire boats and row boats are available on Lake Windermere, and Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly from Bowness Pier. These famous steamers head north to Ambleside and south to peaceful Lakeside - two popular Lake District holiday destinations that are well worth exploring. An even shorter walk away from Maple Bank is the car-ferry crossing, over Lake Windermere. Once on the western shores of the lake, you can explore 'Beatrix Potter countryside', the author's former home at Hill Top, and the picturesque Lakeland village of Hawkshead.  …see more

This 17th century Westmorland 'longhouse' is what we'd describe as a dream Lake District holiday home. Elegantly refurbished to 5 star luxury, unforgettable for its 'olde worlde' charms and part of a picture-postcard rural scene - overlooking the lush Lyth Valley, a mile from the acclaimed Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank only a few miles from the shores of Lake Windermere. Rich in character with old oak beams and deep silled windows, woodburning stove and pretty latch doors, the spacious accommodation provides ample breathing space for a family or even 3 couples. You'll find 3 stunning king-size bedroom suites, elegant dining space and plenty of corners for retreating with a good book - including garden, patio and pretty sun terrace. Accommodation in detail From the front entrance; entrance hall with cloakroom/4th WC and a landing with access to the rear patio. Dual aspect living room with flagged floors, woodburning stove and luxury leather furnishings. 2nd living / dining room, open plan to the kitchen, and with patio doors to a scenic patio. Upstairs to a scenic gallery landing / reading area and 3 king-size bedrooms with stunning bathrooms and superb views, particularly from the interesting hayloft bedroom. Outside you'll find pretty gardens, furnished patio and furnished sun terrace. Location This luxury Lake District holiday cottage takes an enviable rural location; overlooking the serene Lyth Valley but still only a few miles from shops, restaurants, pubs and Lake District family attractions in Bowness. To the east of Lake Windermere the Lyth Valley's peaceful landscapes provide a quieter alternative to the hustle bustle of popular Lake District holiday destinations such as Bowness and Ambleside. The valley is renowned for its wonderful walking, down quiet leafy lanes or up onto the fells to overlook Lake Windermere. The famous Gummers How walk begins only a short drive from your door and promises one of the finest lake views in the Lake District from its manageable summit. It's also perfectly followed by a meal at the Mason's Arms at Strawberry Bank - one of several acclaimed Lake District country pubs nestled in the valley. For family entertainment, sophisticated shopping and lively nightlife you're only a few miles from Bowness village. You'll also find family entertainments such as the World of Beatrix Potter, mini golf by the lake, hire boats and row boats in the bay, and the opportunity to take a cruise on one of the Windermere Lake steamers. Windermere Golf Club is within easy reach on the outskirts of Bowness. From your holiday cottage in the Lyth Valley, you'll easily explore the rest of the Lake District by joining up to the famously scenic A591 at Windermere village - just a couple of miles north of Bowness.  …see more

In a countryside setting only 10 minutes from Bowness and Lake Windermere, the historic Starnthwaite Ghyll mill house has been tastefully converted into a special complex of character cottages. Delightfully off the beaten track, Gilpin View is one of a row of four attractive cottages overlooking the stream and across the orchard to the lush Lyth Valley, very close to Crosthwaite village and the award-winning Punchbowl Inn. The accommodation is beautifully presented, echoing the lines of the original building and full of rural charm with its country kitchen, charming bedrooms and relaxing living room. The gardens are a dream, and the private furnished patio is perfect for soaking up the unique pace of life this area has to offer. Accommodation in detail Parking outside the property, access to the main gardens and also Gilpin View's private patio with garden furniture. Enter to the wonderfully homely open plan living area, with sitting area overlooking the stream and a country-style kitchen set apart with a large pine table and chairs. Upstairs to the romantic double bedroom, beautifully furnished and with a picturesque cottage window. Loft style twin bedroom with skylight. Fully tiled house bathroom with shower over bath. Location This superb Lake District holiday cottage in Crosthwaite has a stunning rural location, off the beaten track but surprisingly convenient and easily accessible from the M6. You'll find a renowned and award-winning Lake District country pub, The Punchbowl, in Crosthwaite village, as well as a delightful old church to explore. Crosthwaite is a small community in the north of the Lyth Valley, between Kendal and Lake Windermere. The area is renowned for its lush green landscapes, wonderful walks, peaceful country lanes, pretty woodlands and prized damson harvest - which gives rise to stunning damson blossom in spring. Only a ten minute drive takes you past the Windermere Golf Club to bustling Bowness village on Lake Windermere's eastern shore, where you'll find sophisticated shops, endless boating activities, Lake District family attractions such as the World of Beatrix Potter, and a range of options for evening entertainment. From traditional Lakeland pubs to trendy tapas bars, cinema, theatre and nightclub, there's something for every taste. From Bowness Bay, you can hop on a Windermere Lake Cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside - a great way to explore while soaking up the scenery. If you'd prefer to explore the wider Lake District by car, perhaps to seek out walking routes, the A591 leads easily from Windermere village to Ambleside, Rydal Water, historic Grasmere and beyond. With stress-free journeys and easy navigation from your rural Lake District holiday cottage, the highlights of the Lake District National Park are within easy reach.  …see more

The Heart of England, the Midlands was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and sites such as Ironbridge Gorge can take you back into the history of the area. To step back further in time, a visit to Stratford upon Avon is a must for any visitor to the region, with Shakespeare plays performed regularly at the Swan Theatre. Visit the region’s regenerated shopping capital, Birmingham, the vibrant centre of Nottingham and the beautiful flat countryside of Shropshire, Leicestershire, and Lincolnshire. The Midlands is criss-crossed with canals, and these are a great way to explore what this sometimes underrated part of England has to offer.
