Abbotsgarth Heights (985)
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This sophisticated detached Lakeland cottage truly enjoys the very best of both worlds; strolling distance from bustling Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere, yet in absolute peace and quiet, commanding outstanding views. Abbotsgarth Heights commands a gently elevated position providing breathtaking views to the Lakeland Fells, and when the leaves fall the view over Lake Windermere is magnificent. This beautiful place offers a fantastic base from which to explore this vibrant village, the magic of Lake Windermere and also the wider Lake District.
A soothing open-plan living space, with separate games / quiet room, makes the ideal environment for relaxed gatherings or sociable occasions. Two couples or a family can spread out and relax without treading on any toes; the two superbly chic bedrooms have their own luxurious bathroom facilities.

Bowness-on-Windermere is a popular Lake District holiday location, nestling on the eastern shore of Lake Windermere and alive with all the boating activities of Bowness Bay. Enjoy sophisticated shops, tempting cafes, excellent Lake District restaurants and cosy traditional pubs, or stroll to the pier to hop on a Windermere Lake Cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside - a lovely way to explore without even using your car.
Couples or families will find plenty of evening venues to explore - from the cosy and traditional 'Hole int Wall' to the trendy Bodega & Sol tapas bar.

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.
