Overview

About the property

Delightful 3 Bedroom Cottage In Central Location

An attractive terraced character cottage in the heart of this popular village, steeped in traditional features such as original beams, slate floor and exposed stone walls yet infused with stylish interior design, fabulous fabrics and luxurious furnishings.

Following a complete refurbishment in 2014, the owners have made the very best of this property, mixing modern and stylish with a very high standard of furnishings & equipment which makes this a truly luxurious cottage. As very experienced 'self caterers', the owners have paid a great deal of attention to detail and their guests needs.

Spacious dining room accommodates six diners comfortably to the front of the cottage with easy chairs either side of the multi fuel stove. Cosy lounge with sumptous sofas, original slate floor and exposed lake land fireplace with a second multi fuel stove, everything to make those evenings in front of the fire even more enjoyable.

Saloon doors lead to bright and airey breakfast room with folding doors onto sunny decking and an enclosed yard, a great way to start the day!

The bright and well equipped kitchen is more than suitable to assist in catering for any self-catering holiday.

First floor to a the first of our bedrooms, all with TV. A cosy double to the front of the cottage with co-ordinated dressing table and wardrobe and a twin bedroom to the rear (next to bathroom). The house bathroom consists of double sinks and double shower and WC, ample storage and in-house stereo system with floor mood lighting.

Upper floor to the attic master bedroom with exposed lakeland stone walls and beams. A luxurious king size bed, large screen TV and large skylight for night time stargazing make this room the favorite!

Due to its central location all the amenities of the village of Bowness are on your doorstep, as well as many excellent walks nearby which can be started direct from the cottage and allows you to take in the beautiful view points of Brantfell and Post Knott.

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.

Beautiful cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 wonderful nights at Ellefred Cottage. It truly felt like a home away from home. The bedrooms were very spacious and had extremely comfortable beds. Lots of space throughout, including a huge kitchen with everything you could possibly need. A fantastic bathroom with a great shower and double sinks. We loved spending the evenings in the cozy lounge watching TV. Everything is practically at your doorstep. Very good Italian and Indian restaurants just down the street. And a short walk to all the shops. The lake is a quick 10 min walk. We would highly recommend the cottage and can't wait to visit again!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this wonderful cottage. Our party came in two cars but parking wasn't any issue with the use of the two parking permits. There was always parking available down the street.

On arrival, we entered the cosy, warm cottage. I loved the kitchen, which has everything in it that you can think of. We are in 2/3 nights! We bought logs and kindling from the Co-op down the road, and enjoyed a drink or two in front of the fire.

The beds were very comfortable and the shower was great too.

The location is great, with being very central to Bowness but the road is very quiet enabling a peaceful nights sleep.

We would definitely recommend this beautiful cottage to anyone. Would we stay again....definitely!

Fantastic property in excellent location.

The property is absolutely fantastic. Very tastefully decorated, full of character with high quality fixtures and fittings. Comfortably accommodated our family of 6 and had everything you could need. Ideally located within walking distance to everything Bowness has to offer.

We stayed for a week and enjoyed all the local lakes and hikes. Can't wait to come back again. The house was a great location and had everything you could possibly ask for.

Could not have asked for more. Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely superb cottage. It's finished to such a high standard and is so well stocked you need for practically nothing when you get there so you can just get on with your holiday.

Great location right in the centre of Windermere.

Couldn't have asked for more!

Central yet quiet property - just minutes from pubs and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 1 week with our 3 children and had found this to be a perfect base for exploring the area. The property has been thoughtfully extended and is well presented throughout. There are many good pubs and restaurants in Bowness-on-Windermere to choose from and only a few minutes walk from the house. Would definitely recommend.
