Accommodation in detail

Private parking for 3 cars. External steps lead to the first floor entrance hall and cloaks cupboard.

This superb Bowness self-catering property is perfectly placed for a varied Lake District holiday. Soak up the views from the comfort of home, relax in a secluded and sunny garden, but enjoy the convenience of shops, restaurants, bars and boating activities all only a stroll away. On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a bustling tourist destination with a character all of its own. Contemporary shopping streets lead down to Bowness Bay, where hire boats come and go, and Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside. There's lots to see in both these areas, and they can be explored without even taking your car.

Lake District bus tours also depart regularly from Bowness village, but if you'd prefer to explore by car you'll find that driving is scenic in every direction. A couple of miles away, the A591 leads right into the heart of the Lakes, taking in Ambleside, historic Grasmere, and branching off to breathtaking locations such as the Langdale Valley - many famous Lake District walking routes are within easy reach.

Family attractions in Bowness include the World of Beatrix Potter, right in the village centre. This famous children's author lived just on the other side of Lake Windermere, in the sleepy hamlet of Near Sawrey. Her home is open to the public and can be reached easily via the car ferry crossing from Bowness. Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness, on the way into the scenic Lyth Valley. The lush green landscapes are a delight to explore, with many walking routes and a wealth of renowned Lake District gastropubs. Well worth a try!

The Cumbria/Lake District

The Lake District is a place like no other. No other region in the world is so packed with such varied and stunning scenery in such as small area– and it's all on your doorstep with easy access by car or rail. The choice of outdoor activities is endless with some of the best walks, climbs and bike rides in the world, beautiful lakes for sailing, canoeing, windsurfing or just a cruise one of several ferry services. The National Park itself encompasses soaring mountains, native woodland (you might see a red squirrel!), lush meadows and of course the many famous lakes themselves. Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Ruskin and many more have been inspired by the Lake District and made their homes here. The homes are still here and open to visit and they too are surrounded by majestic mountain panoramas. There also some surprises – kids will love attractions such as the giant i-max screen at Rheged Visitor Centre, Go Ape aerial activities in Grizedale Forest and The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness. And where better to stay than a classic Lakeland Cottage. Lakelovers have over 400 properties in prime locations within the heart of the Lakes and we specialise in hand-picked properties that we know you'll love. Whether you want a grand property for a family gathering or a cosy bolt hole for two we can't wait to show you what we have for you to choose from. We know The Lakes inside out and we are just a click of a mouse or a phone call away.
