Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Bowness & Windermere - Church View Cottage

Originally built as part of a Coaching Inn in around the 17th Century,this delightful cottage is situated in the peaceful hamlet of Ings in the heart of the Lake District National Park. The combination of charm and comfort with one of the best Lakeland pubs in the vicinity makes the location difficult to beat. The famous Watermill Inn is 200yards away and has it's own micro-brewery. It has free Wi-Fi available.There is immediate access to beautiful walking country while at the same time being very close to all the major tourist attractions of the Southern Lakes.A trip to the Trafford Centre, one of the biggest shopping malls in Europe is about one and a half hour's drive away.

Ideally located for walking, cycling, water sports or just ‘peace and quiet'.

We welcome well behaved pets. The pub is very dog friendly and even has their own beers named after them!!

Please note that although Google Maps show the main road to be close, Ings is a very quiet little backwater. Most people whizz past on the way to Windermere and pass it by completely.

The cottage sleeps five in three bedrooms and has delightful views of open countryside to both the front and rear. There is also a secluded south facing rear garden. Fully centrally heated with traditional stonewalls gives you warmth in the winter and stays cool in the summer.

Cosy lounge with exposed oak beams and open slate fireplace. . Colour TV, CD/radio. Two double sofas & easy chair. A local information pack is also available. The separate kitchen/dining room is fully equipped with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, cooker and fridge with small freezer compartment.

First Floor:

Bathroom with bath/shower, washbasin, WC and airing cupboard. Large bedroom with ensuite shower, washbasin and wc . Pine double bed, dresser, wardrobe with views over the churchyard to the hills.

Second Floor

Front Bedroom with zip-link bed (2 singles or king size bed) dresser, wardrobe, chest of drawers.

Rear bedroom with pine bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and open views to countryside.

Outside

Easy parking to front of cottage. Well manicured safe south facing lawned & flower bordered garden plus cosy patio area. Outbuilding for bikes & toys. Garden furniture& BBQ for outside dining. Modern little used children’s play area nearby.

Had a wonderful time at the cottage. Plenty of snow with the children!! Cottage is in a lovely location with a great pub just around the corner. Lots of walks and different villages to explore. Very clean and cosy.

Lovely homely place

  • 4 of 5

The property itself is just what you need for a short break, it is well appointed, and in a good location (quiet side road yet within very easy reach of Windermere - about 10 minute drive - and the village of Staveley -about 5 minute drive - which has lots of amenities)

We visited as a family of two adults and two children, and were very comfortable here. We would definitely consider staying here again for future visits to the area.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage just a shame about the neighbour at no1 who was very rude about us using the right of way and told us to use are front door and also bolted the garden gate between us .

Owner's Response: We specifically ask that the gates are closed at all times as our neighbours have a dog. This has never been a problem in over 20 years. In fact many of our guests comment on the friendliness and helpfulness of our neighbours. It must be assumed that these guests were persistently leaving the gates open.

Wonderful Cottage, Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Lake District. Cottage is excellent, well equipped and surprisingly spacious. Plenty of room for upto the 5 Adults.

Easy to find, just off main road but no issue with traffic or noise from road. Lovely walks around the cottage.

Very close (less than 5 mins drive) to Windermere.

Also close enough to M6 to easily explore into Yorkshire Dales.

Evenings in the private back garden also very pleasant after a day out and about.

In summary, a perfect cottage in a perfect location, very good value for money.

Have already recommended to our friends..

Lovely Cottage, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this delightful cottage on 3 separate occasions, and always enjoy our stay. Ample room for 4 adults, several dogs, and a baby this time, we found it cosy and comfortable. The rooms are a decent size , the garden is secure and the area is very peaceful. The neighbours on either side are friendly, and the pub down the road offers excellent food and real ales.

The cottage is superbly situated for walking holidays
