This delightful character cottage nestles in a quiet location close to the heart of Bowness village. One of four whitewashed former workers' cottages, Rustic Cottage is steeped in traditional features such as original beams, wooden floors and exposed stone walling. This cottage is perfect for a couple or couple with a child and will charm in any season, with its cosy wood burning stove for the winter months and sunny patio to enjoy during the summer.

Additionally, Lake Windermere is only a short stroll away where many water-based activities can be enjoyed or you can take the car ferry across the lake to Hawkshead and Beatrix Potter country. The many amenities of the village of Bowness are on your doorstep, as well as excellent opportunities for walking and taking in the beautiful nearby viewpoints of Post Knott and Brantfell from where views up and down the lake and even over to the coast are possible on a clear day.

Accommodation: The traditional wooden latch door brings you into the open plan kitchen and dining area, this leads into the cosy lounge (flat screen TV/DVD with Freeview), complete with original wood beams and log burning stove. A patio door from the lounge leads out onto the large patio with views out over the village.

Upstairs you will find a nice size double room and a smaller single room with 4 foot double bed and pleasant views onto Claife Heights. Fully tiled family bathroom, bath with shower over, basin and wc.

Outside: Patio door from lounge leads on to the large enclosed south facing patio, with patio furniture, ideal for a morning cup of coffee or glass of wine and barbecue in the evening.
