Occupying an ideal location close to the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere, this comfortable home is ideal for families who like to have everything on their doorstep. Laid out over three floors, this mid-terrace cottage offers contemporary living that hides behind the cottage’s traditional, stone clad exterior. You enter the property via a small porch, and then step down into a great open-plan kitchen/dining room, which is most definitely the heart of this home. A cosy living room with flat screen TV and DVD player is also located on this level, and there is also a cloakroom with toilet. On the lower level, you will find the master bedroom as well as the family bathroom and utility area which houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. On the first floor are two further bedrooms.
Biskey Burrow is just a short walk from the heart of Bowness, which is one of the most popular towns in South Lakeland. The bustling town, which is frequented by locals as well as tourists, has a great selection of individual and unique shops, as well as a wide variety of cafés, bars and restaurants. There is also an old fashioned cinema and The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, which families with children will adore. The shores of Lake Windermere, which is the UK’s largest lake, is also within a 10-15 minute walk. From here, you can hire a boat or take a leisurely ride on one of the old steamers. You can also take a boat cruise to Ambleside, or to Lakeside, where you will find the Aquarium of the Lakes and the Lakeside-Haverthwaite Steam Railway.
