Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In a truly rejuvenating setting on the tranquil southern shores of Lake Windermere, Landing How is a magnificent first floor apartment within a distinctive Georgian development. Surrounded by 17 acres of grounds and gardens, along over half a mile of private lake frontage, this exquisite retreat is perfect for one or even two couples (with two bathroom facilities). But the 2nd king-size bedroom can equally be used as a twin for families or friends; just let us know when you book. The spacious living area overlooks the lake through elegant Georgian windows, providing an excellent space for sociable meals in and cosy conversation.
Landing How is also equipped with free WiFi and Sky TV. Lakeside Pier is within walking distance, for steamer cruises to Bowness and Ambleside. You'll also find a couple of excellent pub restaurants close by - if you can tear yourselves away!

Close to the small hamlet of Lakeside at the very southern tip of Lake Windermere, this lake shore accommodation places you within easy reach of several popular Lake District attractions.
Windermere Lake Cruises depart within walking distance at Lakeside Pier, providing a scenic car-free route to Bowness and Ambleside. You'll find family fun at the Lakes Aquarium - also on the lake shore - and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway departs from the same spot; an opportunity to take a short ride on a restored traditional steam train.
Lake District historic sites such as Holker Hall and Gardens, Cartmel Priory, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, Sizergh Castle and Levens Hall are all within easy reach by car, with no need to navigate through busy tourist areas.
To your north west, via picturesque country lanes, you'll approach the landscapes that famously inspired the children's author Beatrix Potter. Her former home can be visited at Hill Top, in the small village of Near Sawrey (also home to the wonderful traditional pub, the Tower Bank Arms). Only a mile or so further, and you'll reach Hawkshead village - a wonderful place to while away a day, exploring quaint cobbled streets and a blissfully car-free village centre.

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.
