Gavel Cottage description

Holiday home
Gavel Cottage is a cosy and charming semi-detached cottage, superbly located, just one mile from Bowness-on-Windermere and can sleep four people. The cottage has a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, a bathroom and an open plan living area with an open fire. Outside there is off road parking for one car and a front, lawned garden with summerhouse, furniture and a barbecue. With use of nearby hotel and leisure club facilities (some at extra charge), Gavel Cottage is a wonderful holiday base.

The twin towns of Bowness and Windermere both provide a range of amenities, shops and restaurants, plus boat trips are available from Bowness to Ambleside, the Lakeside Aquarium and Beatrix Potter's 'Hill Top House' at Sawrey. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is on the edge of the town, plus Grizedale Forest Park is nearby and there are many National Trust properties in the area.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

It was a great place to relax and unwind,and for sightseeing when reqd. And the spa pass was a great bonus. A lovely touch was the flowers and packet of treats.

Delightful and cosy cottage with a lovely garden and garden facilities. Gavel Cottage was clean and very well equipped. The location was fantastic; with only a short walk to the Bowness Pier. We had an amazing week.

We've visited Gavel Cottage several times now. We love the location, layout, facilities in the cottage, fantastic garden and the added bonus of the gym/pool membership.

Liked being able to relax and chill. It was not too close to the amenities but close enough to walk to. Everything you needed was provided. Wish we could have stayed longer, would definitely recommend this to friends.

Gavel Cottage was perfect, in a fabulous location and just what was described by the Agent. The real fire was a must for us and it was fantastic. The lazy boy chairs in the lounge are perfect too. The personal touches of the crisp white towels, slippers and bathrobes were not expected and a lovely surprise.

A lovely quiet spot with easy walking access to Bowness; a real home from home with all we needed for the week. Worked well for a family of four. Had a lovely garden with good quality barbecue and outdoor seating.
