Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Chase Cottage sits in a beautiful, unspoiled corner of the English Lake District National Park. Originally a barn, the cottage has been refurbished to create a comfortable, modern home-from-home, with everything you need for a relaxing enjoyable stay. There are lovely walks from the door around the peaceful Winster Valley, but the Lakeland Fells are not far away for the more adventurous. So you can be as active or as lazy as you like – with a village shop and two excellent pubs within walking distance, you really don't need to venture far! Bowland Bridge lies near the southern end of Lake Windermere, and is surrounded by open countryside of hills, woods and fields. Deer are often to be seen in the local surroundings. The hotspots of Bowness, Windermere, Ambleside and Coniston are all a short drive away and there is no shortage of tourist attractions throughout the area.

The Lake District
The English Lake District has been attracting visitors for hundreds of years.
With its unique blend of soaring mountains, idyllic lakes, peaceful hills and valleys, picturesque villages and lively tourist attractions, there is truly something for everyone, however active or whatever age.
Bowland Bridge is set at the heart of the unspoiled Winster Valley in the south-east corner of the National Park. Although only 10 minutes drive away from the honeypots of Bowness and Windermere, the area is quiet and peaceful. The hills and valleys are punctuated by rocky outcrops and covered by woods and small forests where deer can often be seen. There are lovely walks from the cottage door.
Alternatively, there is a maze of quiet lanes, ideal for cycling, and for watersports enthusiasts, Lake Windermere is just over the hill. There are numerous tourist attractions within a short drive. The area is famous for its food and pubs - the Hare & Hounds and Masons Arms are both within a short stroll. A slightly longer walk will take you to the renowned Brown Horse at Winster or the Punch Bowl at Crosthwaite. And the 'foodie' village of Cartmel is not far either.

We stayed at Chase Cottage for our 10th anniversary, it looked amazing on the photos and we were not disappointed! It was absolutely immaculate inside and out, the kitchen was really well equipped with everything you would need (corkscrew most importantly!) bathroom and bedrooms were lovely and the beds were nice and comfy too!
The area itself (Bowland Bridge) is quite out of the way but a short drive from anywhere important so exactly what we were looking for! There is a great shop opposite which has most things you would want and the Hare and Hounds next door but one was amazing with regards to food and service! There's also another pub a couple of minute walk up the road called The Masons Arms which we unfortunately didn't get to go to so don't underestimate the 'booking in advance' advice, especially over the weekend! Even though there is a pub so close, its still really quiet during the night.
We took a lovely 20 minute drive into Windermere which was great, had a lovely walk, the tourist information has walking leaflets with directions from the town center which was fab! Although Chase Cottage had a really wide range of walking routes in a file which were really informative too!
Basically, I would say take some food to cook in the lovely kitchen (If you don't fancy eating out every night!) and plenty of wine/beer and enjoy it! It was just what we were looking for and we will definitely be going back! Hugh and Wendy, the owners were really helpful while we were booking too, giving us a few tips about the local area etc.

"A lovely house in a great setting !"
Four old friends met up for a few days at this perfect place ! We had driven over the Pennines in the worst blizzard of the season thinking we might not make it and were delighted that we did ! In fact the news was full of the flooding and gales but we kept remarking on how lucky we were in the relative calm in this lovely area. We did very little but eat and talk ! The cottage was immaculately presented and very comfortable for four. The kitchen was spacious,modern and fully equipped. The bathroom was ultra-modern and both bedrooms were delightful. Both the pubs nearby served excellent food and the shop opposite the cottage was very handy for breakfast supplies and essentials. We managed a bracing walk up Gummer's How and a drive around the Langdale Pikes ! We would absolutely recommend this place for a holiday as it's easy to reach anywhere within the Lakes !

Just returned from Chase Cottage, absolutely loved it and the area. The cottage has everything you could possibly want in it, its cosy but modern and very clean. Beautiful area, fantastic for walks and sightseeing. I cannot recommend highly enough, the owners had even put xmas tree and decorations up for us. Truly wonderful.
