Description

Located at Quarry Rigg in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere, this second floor apartment offers comfortable self-catering accommodation with lake views and all of the town centre’s amenities quite literally on the doorstep. Lake View is a contemporary two bedroomed apartment which is ideal for couples or small families wanting to explore the central and southern lakes. With an allocated parking space you can enjoy all of this popular tourist town’s shops, bars, cafés and restaurants without having to negotiate town centre traffic and parking charges. There is a comfortable living room with comfy seating and dining for four, a compact but well-equipped kitchen, two nicely presented bedrooms and a family bathroom. The apartment is equipped with 40" Smart TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi ensuring that guests can relax and be entertained at the end of the day’s activities. Both the kitchen and living room enjoy views of Lake Windermere which is within a 5-10 minute walk. Here you can take part in various water sports or for the less energetic, why not take a relaxing cruise.
Whilst there is plenty in Bowness to keep everyone entertained, fed and watered, there is of course lots to see and do outside of the town and the apartment makes a great base from which to explore. Other Cumbrian towns worth visiting within easy access include Ambleside, Kendal, Hawkshead, Cartmel and Ulverston. Families with children will enjoy a visit to the World of Beatrix Potter, South Lakes Zoo, the Lakeland Aquarium, Motor Museum and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway, where you can take a ride on a steam train. Grizedale Forest also makes a great day out with plenty of trails, mountain biking, Segways and the Go Ape treetop adventure. There are plenty of events and festivals held throughout the year, which together with the stunning scenery and great walking opportunities, make this the perfect year round destination. Beach 19 miles. Shop and restaurant 25 yards, pub 100 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.
