Description

Rubbing shoulders with prestigious properties in Storrs Park – a location known locally as ‘millionaires row’, Granton Lodge is a detached former lodge house set back on the edge of the manicured gardens of a substantial lakeside property. This fabulous location allows guests views of Lake Windermere across the neighbouring properties and the beautiful sunsets to be enjoyed this side of the lake. A typical early 20th century Lakeland lodge, the property has been sympathetically extended with the loft offering a spacious master suite enjoying lake views. Granton Lodge has elegant good looks, both inside and out, and careful attention to detail in offering guests well-presented comfortable accommodation.
Just a short drive from the centre of Bowness, Storrs Park is ideally placed to enjoy walks from the door to take advantage of its particularly picturesque location. The nearby Hawkshead ferry crossing offers easy access to the west of the lake and nearby typical Lakeland villages offer pubs with open fires, good beer and menus taking advantage of the excellent locally sourced produce. Head into Bowness, for an eclectic mix of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Set on the edge of Lake Windermere, Bowness has a truly Lakeland feel and stunning views across the lake throughout the year. A wander up the hill from Bowness to Windermere offers guests further shops, many fine independent retailers, and an excellent choice of eateries. Shop 2 miles, pub 1 mile 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.
