Envisage a spectacular staycation at the heart of the Lake District National Park, swapping the daily grind for mountain views, glacial waters and a wonderful selection of bustling lakeside towns and sleepy villages. Sleeping four guests across two gorgeous bedrooms, this sleek and stylish apartment is a contemporary haven within easy reach of Bowness-on-Windermere. Wake up to special breakfasts on your private patio, sipping a soothing brew as you schedule the day’s activities, or perhaps venturing into town to enjoy a slap-up breakfast at a welcoming eatery.

Inside, the marvellous contemporary decor and exquisite furniture denote a hint of luxury, providing a wonderful setting for spending quality time together. Transform local produce into celebrity-style feasts in the elegant kitchen/diner, and in the summer months, embrace al fresco dining in the spacious garden. On chilly evenings, the cosy lounge is the perfect sanctuary to sample fine wine and a cheeseboard, reclining on the sofas to chat, play board games or watch TV in comfort. Follow the stairs down to the lower ground floor to discover your sleeping quarters, both of which boast fabulous en-suite facilities for the ultimate treat. There is roadside parking subject to availability, and the nearest shop, pub and restaurant is less than 0.5 miles away.

Hop onboard a steamboat and enjoy a leisurely cruise on Lake Windermere, taking in the breathtaking scenery all around you. There are opportunities to kayak, paddleboard and canoe from Bowness-on-Windermere, 0.5 miles away, or perhaps you would prefer to stay on dry land and explore the independent shops and eateries. Golfers are well catered for at the popular golf club, 2.5 miles away, and keen fishermen will be spoilt for choice of where to cast their line as there are opportunities for free and permit fishing depending on the location.

We had a brilliant time at the Lakes and it was nice to be able to return to a lovely property. It was worth having the lower Thornbarrow property for the outside space especially as we had our dog with us and was able to spend time in the garden in the evenings.

The cottage would have been good if it wasn't for the heating. It is all underfloor and I suspect as it is a new owner they haven't had many people visit in winter so the settings weren't right. We were max at 16 degrees which is good when youre out walking in 3 degrees and want warmth! Took 5 days to get it resolved. The place is lovely and well eRead morequipped it was just spoilt by how cold it was. I would like to have seen in the description that this was attached to a nursery! Hide

Lovely house, great location. The kitchen is well equipped and the fridge and freezer are huge! The garden is also really nice. The house is warm and well insulated - very helpful in the Lakes.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
