About the property

Sleeps 2, large bedroom with king sized bed, bathroom, separate bath and shower.


Let your romantic side run free in this stunning 4* Gold Award retreat, gazing out over rolling countryside near the village of Crook, a few miles from the tourist centre of Bowness and Lake Windermere. From the moment you step through the door, the sophistication of Glen Rowan announces itself in style. You'll love preparing for intimate evenings in the elegant kitchen, and sinking into the leather sofa to enjoy far-reaching views by day and fire-warmed movies by night. Wake up to wonderful Lakeland mornings in the designer-chic bedroom, take refreshing or bracing walks starting straight from your door (situated on the Dales Way) and pop into the nearby Sun Inn for good food and drink. Pack your camera for those sunsets and panoramic views from the patio!

Private parking for 2 cars. Enter to the ground floor and the generous kingsize master bedroom, with deep weft carpet and fully tiled, attractive en-suite bathroom with under floor heating, bath and separate shower. Upstairs to the vaulted open plan living / dining / kitchen space, with a full wall of glass to the living area and wonderful views from the contemporary fitted kitchen. Making your morning coffee will be an absolute joy. The lounge area has a wall-mounted fire and large wall-mounted TV / DVD for cosy nights in. Doors lead from the first floor to a patio with magnificent views.

Glen Rowan is ideally located for a peaceful Lake District break, near to the attractive village of Crook and only a short drive from the popular attractions at Bowness and Lake Windermere.

Crook is pleasantly separate from the more crowded towns and surrounded by views of rolling hills and the Lyth and Winster Valleys. Traditional pubs serving delicious food are dotted throughout this green and pleasant area. Good food, peace and quiet are guaranteed.

Steeped in history and folklore, Crook was once home to the area's mill and industrial workers. Traditional cottages dating back to the 17th century still stand. The Lyth Valley comes alive with Damson blossom in the spring. Make sure you try some of the Damson delicacies on offer at the local bars and restaurants. Why not take home a bottle of Damson Gin as a souvenir?

Lake shore attractions, sophisticated shops and evening entertainments are easily reached in Bowness village, just a few miles away. On your way, you'll also pass the prestigious Windermere Golf Club.

Luxury at its best.

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous cottage, very luxurious and a heaven to come back to after a days walking. A central location to Kendal, Lake Windermere, Ambleside, Keswick etc. Stunning views from the cottage, the lambs in the fields opposite kept us entertained whilst sitting on the balcony, or looking out of the main cottage window, we had daily visits from a woodpecker on the bird feeder, kestrels, deer etc.

This was our first visit to the lakes and with the luxury of the cottage we couldn't have asked for anything better. Pauline and Dennis the owners were very pleasant and a great welcome from Pauline with the scones and jam on our arrival.

We will definitely be returning.

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place if you are looking for peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful countryside. The "cottage" is very comfortable and very well serviced. Even the birds are looked after with plentiful food supplies! While we wish the owners well in their wish to move, it is sad that other visitors may not be able to enjoy the experience in the future.

Beautiful cottage with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible property. The inside is immaculate and the views outside are amazing. We love The Lake District and visit there frequently and this has been our favourite place to stay. It really does feel like a home away from home. Pauline and Dennis are very welcoming and were always willing to help with any queries we had. Thank you so much for making our little Christmas getaway so perfect.

Beautiful accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the very best properties we have ever rented. We loved the huge upstairs lounge with its fantastic views and appreciated the warmth and comfort. Also great to have TVs in the lounge and bedroom as well as to have both bath and shower. The kitchen is well equipped and practical. WiFi, though a little slow, worked well. The acommodation really cannot be faulted in any respect. Another advantage is that there are 3 pubs within easy walking distance (maximum 2.3 miles), all serving good food.
