Rustic Cottage

This whitewashed character cottage rests in a quiet location close to the village of Bowness-on-Windermere, within the heart of the Lake District. The cottage is the perfect choice for a couple or a small family with a child and will charm in any season, with its cosy woodburning stove for the winter months and sunny patio to enjoy in the summer. A traditional wooden latch door brings you into the compact but well-equipped kitchen, holding everything you could need to rustle up a delicious meal for your loved ones and with a convenient dishwasher you barely have to lift a finger to wash up! Gather at the dining table to enjoy a hearty breakfast and plan the day’s events or use this space to have a romantic meal together over a well-deserved glass of wine. Step into the cosy lounge where you can look forward to relaxing and unwinding in the evening, whilst catching up on your favourite shows or enjoying quality family time. Upstairs you can retire in the nicely presented double bedroom while there is a smaller single room with 4-foot double bed and pleasant views onto Claife Heights. Completing the interior of this Bowness cottage is the family bathroom where you can recover with a soothing bath after a day of sightseeing or freshen up with a shower in the morning. Patio doors from the lounge lead to a large enclosed south facing patio where you can sample a fine alfresco meal with a glass of wine in the evening. The amenities of Bowness are only a short walk away, including a choice of unique shops, bars, pubs and restaurants to try if you fancy a night off cooking. Additionally, Lake Windermere is only a short walk away and is where many water-based activities can be enjoyed, or you can take the car ferry across to the ancient town of Hawskhead and explore the collection of higgledy-piggledy houses, archways, and squares beloved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Avid walkers will be sure to enjoy the superb walking opportunities while taking in the beautiful nearby viewpoints of Post Knott and Brantfell from where views up and down the lake and even over to the coast are possible on a clear day. After an action-packed day, return to Rustic Cottage for a relaxing evening with your loved ones.
