Description

Set in a popular residential location, just outside the centre of much loved Bowness, Ryebank offers guests well-presented and comfortable ground floor accommodation, where attention to detail has resulted in a property that offers a true home from home feel. Couples and families will enjoy the modern kitchen and bathroom facilities, and the open plan living space offers a comfortable area to socialise and enjoy time together.

Tucked behind a pretty mature front garden, which offers a fabulous display of rhododendrons in the early summer months, this semi-detached property’s rear patio which offers the magic of a gently flowing stream running alongside the rear garden area. This provides a delightful space to enjoy a morning coffee, or to sit and relax at the end of a day’s exploring. Ryebank is found a stroll away from Bowness itself, where you will find plenty of Lakeland charm offered with its array of shops, cafés and eateries. Lake Windermere sits at the bottom of the village, where fabulous views of the fells beyond make this a much loved view to enjoy time and time again. Head up the hill from Bowness to Windermere village itself, again with something for everyone.

Ryebank boasts an ideal base from which to enjoy this popular area. Walkers and cyclists will find routes for all abilities. Guests looking to tour the wider area will appreciate good access to the South Lakes and beyond, with Ambleside and the Northern Lakes a short drive away and ferry crossings over Windermere to the west. 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.
