Description

Bellman Houses are set in the wonderful countryside of the Winster Valley, in 120 acres of working farmland, and yet just a 5-minute drive from Bowness-on-Windermere. Stunning views over Lake Windermere towards Great Langdale can be seen on the single track approach, with wonderful local walks direct from the doorstep. Bellman Houses have been owned for three successive generations by the same family, and their sympathetic extensive restoration over the years, using traditional methods and materials reflect the local custom and heritage evident today. The Main House (ref 30863) sleeps 6/7, and is a 16th-century, Grade II listed former farmhouse that retains many original features with timber walls, flagstone floors, beamed ceilings, original fireplaces and the original oak panelling between the bedrooms. The Cottage (ref 30864) sleeps 3 and has stunning, rural views from almost every room. On the site can be found a wonderful example of a spinning gallery in the traditional ’Bank Barn’, one of only a handful of surviving examples in the UK. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
The Main House (ref 30863) and The Cottage (ref 30864) have an interconnecting door and can be booked together to accommodate up to 11 guests.

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.
