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 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.
