Entrance porch leading into the sitting room complete with open fire and sumptuous furnishings over a parquet floor. The open plan drawing room / sun room is quite a place and with walls of glass overlooking the sweeping gardens down to the lake. Here is a formal dining area also with that view and perfect for good food, even better wine and conversations late into the night watching our famous sunsets. The country kitchen also can dine all and is superbly equipped with a view over the lake and even an Aga. Cloakroom on the ground floor with WC / wash basin. Access to the utility / cellar drying room with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Location.
This magnificent Bowness holiday home takes a sublime lakeside location, just off Bowness village and a 30 minute walk from the village centre itself. 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 groups of friends will find plenty of evening venues to explore - from the cosy and traditional 'Hole int Wall' to the trendy Bodega & Sol tapas bar. Families can take their pick from a range of attractions in Bowness; mini golf on the Glebe, the famous World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, the Royalty Cinema and the Old Laundry Theatre.
Enjoying the wider Lake District is simple and easy with a self-catering property in Bowness as your starting point.

LocationCumbria & The Lake District

The rural county of Cumbria is one of the most attractive in England. It contains the whole of the area known as the Lake District, as well as the northern part of the Pennines mountain range and, somewhat counter-intuitively, a part of the Yorkshire Dales.

The county is replete with attractions for the visitor, its historic heritage ranging from houses and gardens to stone circles and activities ranging from walking and climbing to watersports and fishing. Cumbria's lakes, valleys and fells can loosely be broken down into eight areas.

The North Lakes are the most popular with the serious outdoor enthusiast and the South Lakes draw most of the holidaymakers. The Western Lakes are less busy but still hold some varied attractions and appeal to the walkers as well as families and groups. They are home to England's tallest mountain, known as Scafell Pike.

East Lakes has its quota of mountains too, including the well-known Helvellyn, and is a fairly quiet area. Visit the Eden Valley and North Pennine area for wilderness, castles and rural villages, or perhaps consider North and South Cumbria. In the former we find Hadrian's Wall and the city of Carlisle. In the latter, coastal resorts and the biggest town, Kendal. Finally, the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of Cumbria with country pubs, easy walking, and a thriving arts scene.
