Bowfell description

Bowfell is a delightful, two-storey Lakeland stone cottage situated in the heart of the vibrant town of Ambleside. A stylish and thoughtful renovation which provides attractive, light and airy open-plan living, with comfortable and contemporary accommodation. Much of the original character of the cottage has been retained, including local slate flooring, a beautiful traditional slate mantle over a centre-piece wood burner in the lounge and exposed beams in the top bedroom, from where lovely views of Wansfell can be seen across the roof tops.

Bowfell is stylishly finished and well-equipped, with great attention to detail. The comfortable leather sofas allow for relaxing by the fire after a day’s walking on the fells. Then, the soft beds beckon with high quality linens to sink into for a good night’s sleep. The well-equipped kitchen/dining area which opens out to the lounge, is where cooking and socialising become natural companions.

On a quiet back street within a minute’s stroll of central Ambleside, you have easy access to shops, bustling pubs, cafes and a great variety of restaurants as well as a local cinema. There is plenty to do in the area, from cruising down Lake Windermere on one of the famous Windermere Lake Steamers, to hiking, climbing, mountain biking, kayaking or ghyll scrambling, all within easy reach of your doorstep. No matter how you pass your days, the backdrop will always be the stunning fells of the Lake District National Park. Bowfell is ideally located for couples, families or friends looking to explore the multitude of activities the Lake District has to offer, all year round.

Bowfell can be booked together with Graystones Cottage (CC123253), which is situated on the same street, to accommodate up to 12 guests.
