About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Beautiful, traditional lakeland slate cottage located in the centre of Bowness village but only a 5 min walk to the shores of Lake Windermere and all its facilities, such as restaurants, pubs and shops. This cottage has 2 bedrooms consisting of one spacious double and one twin room, plus a recently refitted luxury bathroom. Downstairs, there is a spacious, lounge with gas stove and French doors leading out onto a sunny, secure patio with decking. Next to the lounge is a fully equipped, modern, kitchen leading into a breakfast room. There is also a formal dining room to the front of the house. The cottage is ideally located in the centre of Bowness and has a parking permit for free parking. FREE Wi-fi.

As well as a National Park, the Lake District received worldwide recognition in 2017 when we were granted World Heritage Status by UNESCO! Something we are extremely proud of.

Great location smashing little property very well equipped with some lovely extra little touches

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful little property in a fabulous location. The owner has really done a fantastic job with this cosy well equipped house and you feel at home as soon as you walk through the door. It was exactly what we were looking for. We needed somewhere that would take a dog but didn't expect them to be so accommodating with treats, toys and blankets for the dog that really was a very welcoming touch. We will definitely be telling our friends and family about this little gem and hopefully it won't be too long before we return.

Growler cottage

  • 5 of 5

Growler cottage was lovely and cosy, very well equipped, perfect location, quiet street and just at top of street is where town starts. We were impressed by the milk etc left for when we arrived and chews for the dog, also lots of different size bowls for dogs too, very thoughtful. One thing you may think to add, the living room cupboard/storage room could do with a 'mind the step' sign on door as I fell into it, I am rather clumsy though ha. All round lovely couple of nights away with the kids and poppy the dog. Thank you.

Lovely cottage in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is really nice, comfortable and has everything you need. It is also in a very handy and lovely location. Close to everything and there is a really nice Italian restaurant on the corner if you don't feel like cooking. We really enjoyed our time there and hope to be back!

The cottage offers a perfect location to access so much of the Lake District without even moving your car. It is warm and welcoming cottage and it was our second time there. We have only positive things to say and would highly recommend a visit
