All the facilities of Bowness-on-Windermere are on the doorstep and the not to be missed attractions include the hand-made chocolate shop and the wonderful walks along the Bowness promenade where the many cruise ships run down the Lake to Ambleside.

Further afield walk to Brant Fell which provides stunning views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding fells, including the Langdales and Crinkle Crags which offer some of the most outstanding challenges in this wonderful area. A great destination with all the ingredients for a memorable Lakeland holiday.

‘Lovely clean cottage with everything you would need for a self catering stay in a really nice setting with plenty of space for parking. We made good use of the hot tub which had additional towels and unbreakable glasses provided. The fresh scones waiting for us on arrival was a lovely touch.’

‘Yew Cottage was a perfect place to stay. It was very clean, well equipped, with good wifi, and a wonderful hot tub. Just perfect to relax in with a glass of prosecco after climbing Helvellyn. The hot tub was checked each day and on the morning we left it was been emptied and cleaned for the next guests. Separate fluffy towels were supplied for use with the hot tub. The ground floor bedroom was ideal for my elderly mother and she even ventured into the hot tub because noone could see her. We found the property private and quiet surrounded by the countryside. There were rabbits, birds and deer that were right outside. There is a separate room with washer/dryer and big fridge/freezer. It was also an ideal room to leave our walking boots and wet jackets to dry out. The location was very good for access to the lakes and mountains. The town was only a 5 minute drive away. We did get a taxi to windermere one evening to a resturant (one of many) that only cost £5. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We are already planning to return with other family members.’
