Located at the heart of village life in old Bowness, a conservation area close to the attractive 'Hole Int Wall' and other popular and busy pubs, this well presented cottage is just a two minute stroll from the lake. Days out in the area are numerous with easy walks to the fells at the back of Bowness and by ferry to the west shore of Windermere or up the lake to Waterhead for Ambleside.

Bowness offers good shopping with restaurants to cater for all tastes and age groups. Mountain bikes, rowing boats and sailing dinghies can be hired locally. This is an ideal location for Lakeland activities, and with no need to use the car for evening entertainment.
