Redruth is a substantial, double-fronted family property dating back to 1904. This attractive, semi-detached holiday home offers guests an ideal location from which to enjoy their time in this popular South Lakes location.
Sitting in a pleasant residential area, with easy access to both Bowness and Windermere village, this property is ideally placed to enjoy both. A stroll down to Bowness offers an eclectic mix of independent retailers, pavement cafés, a range of international restaurants, traditional pubs, the popular Beatrix Potter visitor attraction, and of course, Lake Windermere itself.
This picture perfect setting is stunning throughout the year whether offering sunny steamer trips along the lake, or a snow topped backdrop of the western fells across the water. Redruth guests are fortunate in being able to enjoy the close proximity of a second popular Lakeland village in Windermere, with its own mix of facilities, and again, just a pleasant walk away.
This is an ideal property for families and friends, as there is a lower ground floor bedroom with shower room facilities - offering an ideal option for a couple, maybe grandparents, to enjoy a shared holiday with friends or loved ones, whilst with a feeling of privacy and space. On the ground floor, the well-proportioned open plan living space is sure to benefit and be enjoyed as an ideal space for coming together, and a snug offers a second option to perhaps families with varying age groups wanting their own space to relax.
Comfortably furnished, Redruth has the delightful mix of a period property with a contemporary décor. With careful attention to detail, it is well-equipped, and guests will be certain to appreciate the good standard of accommodation available. An outdoor seating area offers space for a morning coffee al fresco, somewhere to ponder and plan the day’s exploring, or dining outdoors in good weather. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

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.
