  • Ms Hallam

    “A lovely well equipped property in an excellent location with walking access into Bowness.”

    The property does have an obvious smell of damp on entering but it was very warm and cosy and suited us as a family for the duration of our stay. It would be handy to have access to the heating controls as during the day the heating wasn’t on and we stayed indoors on several days due to the adverse weather conditions. Nice and spacious and lovely upstairs bedrooms and bathroom, beautiful garden but we didn’t use due to the weather. Overall a nice property.

The property

Step through the front door to the hallway with boot and coat cupboard, which leads to the bright, spacious, triple aspect, open-plan sitting room with dining area and kitchen. A large family size corner sofa sits in front of the TV and electric coal effect fire and the large family dining table is great for family breakfasts or celebration dinners. The large windows allow the light to flood in and the patio doors open to the garden and patio. The fitted kitchen is well appointed and the whole open plan layout gives the living accommodation a very social feel. The first of the four bedrooms is located on the ground floor with an ensuite shower room. The remaining three bedrooms are located on the first floor along with a family bathroom with bath with shower over. The house benefits from a pretty garden that wraps around the property and the patio is presented with outdoor dining furniture. There is an external utility room with washing machine and tumble drier and to the side of the property is private parking for three cars. Just a five minute walk from Fir Trees is the bustling village of Bowness on the shores of Lake Windermere with a great selection of pubs, bars and restaurants in addition to great local shops and amenities.
