Indulge yourself with lavish home comforts, taste-bud-tantalising local fare and spectacular surroundings, choosing this exquisite apartment at the heart of the Lake District National Park. Set back from the gently lapping shoreline of Lake Windermere, your humble abode is an utter treat for four guests with a love of the outdoors and a flair for adventure. Appreciate the soothing backdrop of mountain peaks and glacial water, stroll through the pretty streets of gorgeous chocolate-box villages and lakeside towns, and embrace cosy evenings snuggled by the TV with a glass of wine.

Leave your worries at the door and step inside your contemporary palace, marvelling at the sleek design and bright decor. The open-plan kitchen/diner offers a superb space for fine dining, where you can whip up decadent dinners to savour by candlelight. Morning sunlight streams through the bay windows as you prepare your first coffee of the day, retreating to the lounge to curl up on the sofa and plan the day ahead. Upstairs, two gorgeous twin zip-and-links (which can be made into super-king-size beds on request) are crisply dressed ready for slumber, and an elegant bathroom completes the property. There is no dedicated outside space, but you’ll have an array of countryside walks at your disposal, and there is roadside parking subject to availability.

Studded between iconic Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere, you are ideally placed for trying your hand at a variety of local activities such as water sports, golf and fishing. If you prefer a slower pace of life, there are plenty of pretty shops to satisfy an urge for retail therapy in charming Bowness, 0.5 miles away, and the enthusiastic foodie is well catered for too thanks to a selection of fantastic pubs, tearooms and restaurants.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • 2 bedrooms – 2 twin zip-and-link (which can be made up as a super-king-size on request)
  • 1 bathroom with bath, shower and WC.
  • Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washer/dryer
  • Roadside parking
  • Shops, pubs and restaurants within walking distance
  • Smart TV in lounge

This is a comfortable, spacious, and well equipped cottage. Its conveniently located for walking into both Bowness and Windermere for shops, restaurants, and the lake. An excellent base for visiting the Lake District. The property is generally clean although would benefit from a deep clean particularly in the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay here.

Upper Thornbarrow is in an ideal location for exploring Windermere and Bowness, just a pleasant 10/15 minute walk into each. The cottage was beautifully furnished, clean and very well equipped. The beds were so comfortable we all got a great sleep and the shower was powerful and spacious. Lovely big kitchen too. The only thing missing was use of thRead moree garden, particularly as the occupants downstairs didnt appear to be using it. Other than that a wonderful stay thank you! Hide

Nice and quiet place. We stayed for a week and had no issues at all :) The road is quiet as well and there is plenty of space to park a car outside.

This property was immaculately clean and well equipped. I was concerned having read a previous review regarding lack of cleanliness, but we found it to be spotless. There was ample on-street parking available at all times. The location is good for access into Windermere and Bowness, albeit on a bit of a hill. The property adjoins a nursery, so if tRead morehe sound of toddlers hitting xylophones all afternoon is a dealbreaker, this isnt the place for you. But otherwise, a lovely, modern, stylish house.

We thought the property was ideally situated, enabling us to walk into the hills And down to the lake, Bowness-on-Windermere and Windermere, as well as a bar for driving further into the Lake District. We also found the flat comfortable and relaxing.

Location

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.
