Description

The Stables Apartments are set in the perfect location from which to explore cosmopolitan Lakeland and allow you make the very most of your valuable time in the Lake District. They are set in quiet and attractive surroundings yet within less than a minutes’ walk from all that bustling Bowness has to offer. All the apartments accommodate 2 guests and make an ideal choice for couples wanting a romantic break. The apartments are ideal for self-catering although with so many attractions, pubs and restaurants on your doorstep, you’ll be far too busy enjoying yourselves to bother cooking! With dedicated parking, you can leave your car at the property and explore the area without having to worry about traffic and parking charges.
The Round Window is created in the roof space of former stables and retains many quirky features. Access to the apartment is by a metal spiral staircase, all adding to the character and charm. Internally, it is delightfully presented in a neutral, contemporary theme. With chandeliers and wine glasses at the ready, The Round Window facilities will make you feel at home in no time.
A wealth of independent shops, boutiques, cafés and superb international cuisine restaurants are all found within a short stroll along with the attraction of Lake Windermere itself. For the more energetic visitor, rowing boats are available on the lake, or you can enjoy a more leisurely steamer ride on the lake to see the stunning landscape. Why not wander up to Windermere town where there is a choice of shops and eateries, as well as a traditional cinema and The World of Beatrix Potter attraction? There are regular boat trips over to Ambleside and Lakeside, the latter of which is home to the Lakes Aquarium. From here you can also take a steam train along the Lakeside-Haverthwaite railway. The bus and railway stations give scope to travel further afield and explore the wider area. Walkers can enjoy access to a variety of walks from Bowness. Take a gentle stroll to the lake, or a more strenuous hike to the peaceful valley of Kentmere, the landscape and surroundings are second to none. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.
The Round Window (ref CC128207) can be booked together with The Stable Loft (ref CC128239) and The Stable Nest (ref UK1208) to accommodate up to 6 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.
