LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION within a stones throw of the famous shores of Lake Windermere, this four hundred year old building is situated on the charming well known cobbled pedestrian street in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere amidst a fabulous mix of quaint village shops, romantic restaurants, fine wine-bars and cosmopolitan coffee houses. This holiday home provides something for everyone, including the hidden gem of a private garden with a secluded patio overlooking a lawn, complete with a swing chair and outdoor dining option, providing a real taste of the countryside. The perfect spot where you can relax with an aperitif to the sound of nesting birds before an evening meal and shoreline walk, catching a romantic sunset over the lake.

A two bedroom apartment offering an eclectic mix of the old and the new, with a well-equipped kitchen and glass-tabled dining area nestling beneath an original solid oak beam, perfect for both romantic and family meals. The master bedroom has a well appointed en-suite and both bedrooms are furnished to the highest standard, with solid wood furniture and latticed-windows looking out onto the historic street below. With a versatile layout and a large corner sofa this property would perfectly suit a family, friends looking for an action-packed getaway, or couples seeking a cosy romantic break in the heart of the Lake District. For keen walkers the Dales Way starts at the street corner and just a short car-ferry ride opens-up popular tourist hotspots including Grizedale Forest, Coniston, Ambleside, Wordsworth House and the spectacular Langdale Valley. Closer to home the Beatrix Potter Museum, Steam Boat Museum and the Lakes Aquarium are all easily accessible from the lake shore.
Admiral’s Nest can be booked together with The Den (CC128236) to accommodate up to six 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.
