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.

Convenient location, clean house and great kitchen

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you and happy you enjoyed your stay at Ellefred Cottage. Yes, you can leave the car if you wish, as walks and lake are only a stroll away and a very efficient bus service runs from the end of the street to nearby villages. We hope to welcome you back again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in bowness before, but this was our first time staying here and I'm sure it won't be the last. It truly is a home from home. The property was lovely and clean, comfortable and really cosy. Everything was finished to a high standard. You would be very hard pressed to find fault with anything. We had no problem parking directly in front of the cottage the location is excellent everything is within walking distance. Thank you Tracy for everything it was a pleasure staying in you lovely home.
