Location A self-catering cottage in Windermere will give you a real taste of the Lakeland lifestyle, with plenty of facilities and attractions on your doorstep. The village is less than 30 minutes from the M6 and also well served by a train station in the centre of the village. The village, found just off the famously scenic A591 - the main route into the heart of the Lakes, is only a couple of miles up the road from Bowness Bay and the shores of Lake Windermere. Windermere village is well equipped if you want to eat in or out. You'll be able to stock up on quality fresh produce at the high class Booths supermarket. The headquarters of Lakeland Ltd is a mecca for cooks and the high street offers a wide range of smaller local shops. There are several traditional pubs in Windermere, serving good Lakeland ale and hearty pub meals. You'll find tasty cafes for long, lazy breakfasts and excellent Lake District restaurants such as Jerichos. The A591 provides easy access to many of the Lake District's most famous walking spots, but there are also a few lovely strolls to enjoy around Windermere village. A short walk up Orrest Head affords fabulous views to Lake Windermere and is a must during your stay. The nearby village of Staveley is the starting point for stunning walking and mountain biking in the Kentmere Valley. A short trip from Windermere are Coniston and the Langdale Valley, where you can begin some of the most spectacular walks in the country.  …see more

This fabulous family residence (also a treat for several couples) offers views to Lake Windermere from its slightly elevated position, amid wonderful scenery.

Guests of ages will never be short of entertainment. Blending old Lakeland character with modern sophistication, Woodbank offers large bedrooms, luxurious furniture and the most wonderful dining room - perfect for sitting down to a good meal prepared in the traditional Aga! Alternatively, go al-fresco for your meals with great views from the patio and garden. Accommodation in detail: Private parking for 3 cars.

Outside, you have a garden and patio - furnished for meals and lazing al-fresco. Location The sophisticated Lake District village of Bowness is nestled on the eastern shores of beautiful Lake Windermere - England's largest lake. Boats peacefully come and go, the mesmerising scenery across the lake changes with the season, and the abundance of lake shore and waterborne activities will keep everybody entertained. Bowness high street is well-served with handy supermarkets, sophisticated boutique shops and a wide range of excellent eateries - all within easy reach of your chosen holiday home. The Royalty cinema plays the latest films on its 3-screens and the Old Laundry Theatre also has plenty of entertainment to offer. Outdoor lovers will enjoy having easy access to many popular Lake District walking routes. Head up to Gummers How to admire stunning views of Lake Windermere, or take the car ferry across the lake to walk around attractive Hawkshead and explore Beatrix Potter country (the author's home is close to Hawkshead in the village of Near Sawrey). Grizedale Forest is easily accessible via the car ferry, and popular walking destinations including the Langdale Valley, Coniston and Grasmere are only manageable drives away.
