Situated on the first floor of a part of a Victorian gentleman's house, at the top of a hill with views of Lake Windermere and Claife Heights. One of only four flats in the building. Conveniently located in a quiet location, 5 minutes walk from the centre of Bowness, with it's wide selection of restaurants, pubs and shops, 8 minutes from the lake cruise jetty. One mile from Windermere railway station, so no car needed.

There are two bedrooms, a double and a single. The flat has a modern kitchen and a shower room refitted in 2018. It features gas central heating, wifi and has off street parking for two cars.

Ideal location, great property
The flat is very quiet, clean, lovely decor and everything was of very good quality. Views over Windermere, so close to amenities, yet completely peaceful. It is firmly on our favourites list. Owners very responsive and pleasant to deal with.

Cannot fault!
A great and quiet location, easy walking distance to the busier centre of Bowness. We found the hill not to difficult to negotiate, and enjoyed not needing our car to get around. The apartment had all the equipment we needed, comfortable beds and absolutely immaculate. All credit to the cleaner! Lots of local walks which we tried - the weather was excellent, and the walk just from the back of the property lead to some great views! Communication with the owner was excellent, checking on if we had any questions/problems, and flexible with check-in/checkout times which we really appreciated. We would definitely recommend (in fact already have done!) and would love to come back again.

Excellent location
Comfortable, quiet, spotlessly clean and well equipped apartment. Great location just out of the hussle and bustle of Bowness centre just a small hill to negotiate on the way back, but still really close to all the facilities. Would definitely stay there again.

Home from home
Had a lovely stay, the description of the property is accurate. You do have to be mobile - the walk uphill is not too bad. We’ll be returning. 🙂
