About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located in the heart of Bowness on Windermere but tucked away in a quiet terrace. Once at the cottage you can easily walk to nearby shops and amenities whilst still enjoying the peace and quiet of the cottage upon your return.
Getting around
Local buses can be found at the end of the terrace giving access to the beautiful central Lake District and the Windermere ferry is 1.5km away taking you to the other side of the shore where you can easily walk to Beatrix Potter's Hilltop Farm. Mountain Goat Tours is a brilliant way of exploring the Lakes and is found in Windermere providing an excellent way to have guided sightseeing tours of the locality.
