Dovera, translated as the number nine in traditional Westmorland dialect, is a delightful second floor apartment in a quiet location, yet handy enough for all the amenities and attractions that this tourist hotspot is so well renowned for. With private parking for one car, you can simply park up for the duration of your stay and explore on foot or make use of the excellent transport options available, Stagecoach bus company, The Mountain Goat or even the famous Windermere  Lake Steamers.
Dovera is a beautifully presented contemporary apartment, decorated in muted shades with splashes of colour provided by way of interesting accessories and quality furnishings to ensure your comfort. The stylish bathroom is just the spot for a relaxing soak after a hard day sightseeing whilst the well equipped, chic kitchen is sure to bring out the creative side in even the most novice of cooks although with so many excellent restaurants to sample in Bowness, this area of the apartment may not be used to its full potential!

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.
