Description

A traditional, late Victorian terraced house, Acorn Cottage sits in a small, pleasant cul-de-sac, and is ideally placed to benefit from close proximity to both of the popular Lakeland destinations of Windermere and Bowness. Slightly closer to Bowness, with the facilities and amenities just a short stroll away, the cottage has the advantage of off road parking. With accommodation over three floors, the property is ideal for couples, families and friends. Whilst retaining the charm of a cottage property, the bedrooms are well proportioned, with an en-suite shower room in the attic bedroom. The cosy living room has a wood burner for those cooler evenings, and the kitchen/dining room offers a cheery space for eating together, that’s if you are not tempted by the very convenient restaurants and cafés close at hand!

Full of charm and character, with a typically Lakeland appeal in its architecture, the town of Bowness sits on the shore of Lake Windermere and truly offers something for everyone. Guests of Acorn Cottage will find an eclectic selection of independent retailers, pavement cafés, international restaurants and pubs. Traditional steamers offers rides across the lake, or the car ferry will take you over to the Western Fells. A stroll up to Windermere, or ’the village’, again offers a great mix for all, as well as access to the train station for guests wishing to explore a little further. Walkers of all abilities head to this picturesque area throughout the year. Whether seasoned hikers, or guests preferring a fair weather stroll, the delightful surroundings of this picturesque corner of Cumbria never fails to draw back guests year after year. Beach 15 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

About the local area

Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the most popular locations in the Lake District. Situated midway down Lake Windermere, a long promenade skirts the lake with views over a busy harbour where pleasure cruisers arrive and depart taking visitors up and down the lake.

The town has a vibrant, bustling atmosphere, especially in the summer months and a superb lakeside setting with lovely views across and down the lake. A car ferry runs to the far side of the lake taking visitors to Sawrey and Hawkshead or you can take a trip on one of the steamers north to Ambleside or south to Lakeside.

There is plenty to see and do including the Beatrix Potter Exhibition and Steamboat Museum, as well as an 18 hole `pitch and put' and sailing marinas. Bowness provides a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as a wide range of shops, all within easy reach.
