The property

Recently renovated to a very high standard, 'The Crow's Nest' is a perfectly apt name for this 3-floored property with views over Claife Heights and less than a mile away, Lake Windermere. The glass balcony gives extra scope to admire the views and enjoy a relaxing evening drink or an early morning breakfast witnessing the fog rise on the lake. The private parking for 2 cars is a plus in this part of the lakes, even though you won't need a car to visit the number of attractions all within walking distance, such as the Beatrix Potter museum, Bowness Bay where you can take a cruise on England's largest lake, pubs, bars and amazing restaurants galore. Accommodation: The attention to detail and high standard throughout this property is apparent in every room from the downstairs shower room/utility room to top floor lounge and kitchen/diner. The soft furnishings and decor throughout show a high standard of taste and comfort. On entering the ground floor, you will find the access to store your bikes in the garage, and the shower room. Karndean flooring throughout with carpeted stairs. The first floor is home to a family bathroom with shower over bath, wc and basin. A beautifully decorated master bedroom with king size bed to the rear of the property and a twin/super king bedroom at the front (please specify requirement on booking). The carpeted stairs take you to the 2nd floor into a large, welcoming and comfortable lounge with Wi-Fi, Blu-ray and Freeview from which the south facing balcony can be accessed through large glass sliding doors with outdoor furniture.
