Holiday Rental House
Cosy cottage but with lots of living space for a family to spread out. Leather sofas, quality towels and linens and modern appliances in the well stocked kitchen make this a home from home. The highlight however has to be the secluded private garden full of shrubs and flowers with occasional guests the local pheasants and ducks. The cottage is a short stroll from Lake Windermere or to the fells above and a short drive to Bowness and Windermere with their many restaurants and other amenities. The cottage has been furnished and equipped to allow us owners and you our guests to truly relax and enjoy time there. Take a seat on the terrace in summer or by the cosy open fire in winter or sun yourself in the conservatory watching the local pheasants and rabbits. The cottage sleeps 4-6 in 3 bed...Cosy cottage but with lots of living space for a family to spread out.

The cottage sleeps 4-6 in 3 bedrooms and is best suited to a family or small group of friends. Accomodation is in 2 double beds and 1 bunk room. A breakfast/kitchen, living room/diner and conservatory overlooking the garden provide generous living space. A modern contemporary bathroom offers bath with shower over. Parking is available within the grounds for up to 2 cars. Quality bedding and towels are provided. Awarded a Visit England 4 star rating when last rated in 2016 (we have not applied since as we believe the reviews speak for themselves) the house offers everything you need for a family holiday or for a small group of friends to enjoy everything this exciting area has to offer. Short bookings considered for 3+ nights out of peak season or at short notice, please ask. bar Free WiFi is provided on a reasonable use basis.The flat screen TV offers freeview. DVD player and wireless music player also available. Board games, DVD's and books provided for your use. A landline has been installed for incoming calls only.. Ideal for walkers, an undemanding 30 minute walk takes you to Rossthwaite Heights which is one of Alfred Wainrights favourite spots and affords a fabulous panoramic view of Lake Windermere. Or why not walk across the fells to the Brown Horse at Winster, enjoy a leisurely lunch and walk back (or get a cab!).There is also easy access to trails for all levels of mountain biking and secure storage for bikes in the lockable garden shed. Bikes can also be hired in Windermere or at the nearby Ferry Nab ferry point. The many restaurants and bars in Bowness can be reached with a 5 minute drive or taxi ride if you prefer. The location offers the peace and tranquility of a country cottage and garden but allows you to embrace the more lively side of this beautiful area if you prefer so in our view offers the best of both worlds.

Nice property and grounds has all you need for a comfortable stay. A vehicle is a must, although it is fairly local to places of interest there are no road pathways making it difficult to walk anywhere particularly with children and pushchairs.More
