Description

Redruth is a substantial, double-fronted family property dating back to 1904. This attractive, semi-detached holiday home offers guests an ideal location from which to enjoy their time in this popular South Lakes location.
Sitting in a pleasant residential area, with easy access to both Bowness and Windermere village, this property is ideally placed to enjoy both. A stroll down to Bowness offers an eclectic mix of independent retailers, pavement cafés, a range of international restaurants, traditional pubs, the popular Beatrix Potter visitor attraction, and of course, Lake Windermere itself.
This picture perfect setting is stunning throughout the year whether offering sunny steamer trips along the lake, or a snow topped backdrop of the western fells across the water. Redruth guests are fortunate in being able to enjoy the close proximity of a second popular Lakeland village in Windermere, with its own mix of facilities, and again, just a pleasant walk away.
This is an ideal property for families and friends, as there is a lower ground floor bedroom with shower room facilities - offering an ideal option for a couple, maybe grandparents, to enjoy a shared holiday with friends or loved ones, whilst with a feeling of privacy and space. On the ground floor, the well-proportioned open plan living space is sure to benefit and be enjoyed as an ideal space for coming together, and a snug offers a second option to perhaps families with varying age groups wanting their own space to relax.
Comfortably furnished, Redruth has the delightful mix of a period property with a contemporary décor. With careful attention to detail, it is well-equipped, and guests will be certain to appreciate the good standard of accommodation available. An outdoor seating area offers space for a morning coffee al fresco, somewhere to ponder and plan the day’s exploring, or dining outdoors in good weather. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

About the local area

Lake Windermere is perhaps the best know area in the Lake District and Windermere village itself is about 1km from the lake. The lake stretches from Waterhead, near Ambleside, to Lakeside at its narrow southern end, over 10 miles in length and the largest lake in England. Wooded slopes dotted with cottages and houses line its shores, while the water itself is usually busy with ferries and yachts.

Windermere is not as busy as it's near neighbour, Bowness-on-Windermere, but has its own charms and attractions. It has excellent amenities and a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars all within easy reach. The village has good public transport links with its own train station and bus routes.

Troutbeck Bridge lies to the north in between Windermere and Ambleside; handy for both but located just off the beaten track. Troutbeck Bridge has its own local amenities including a public swimming pool and a local pub. Between Troutbeck Bridge and the Low Wood Hotel lies Brockhole - The Lake District Visitor Centre. This has an adventure playground, exhibitions, cafe, shop and extensive grounds down to the lake and jetty.

Situated between Kendal and Windermere is the lovely village of Staveley which is often referred to as the Gateway to the Lakes. It mainly comprises of grey slate buildings which are nestled between the Rivers Kent and Gowan. It is ideally placed for exploring the rest of the Lake District and is only a few minutes away from the beautiful Kentmere valley.
