The property

Situated in the centre of the bustling market town of Bowness-on-Windermere in the Lake District National Park, is Bank Chambers, a spacious and luxurious duplex apartment, boasting views of Windermere lake and the fells beyond.

This magnificent, three-bedroom apartment is ideal for groups of couples, friends or family wanting to enjoy a touch of luxury, as well as being in a central location to discover some of the Lake District's most loved attractions.

It comes with many interesting perks, with three parking permits available for multiple cars, as well as use of the owner's boathouse to store watersporting equipment such as paddleboards, and you can even charter the owner's fantastic 40ft yacht at an agreed price, to enjoy a lunch or dinner on board as you explore your picturesque surroundings.

Step inside the apartment to discover a newly renovated interior, boasting high ceilings, coving and a host of luxurious touches, making this a welcoming and memorable base for your holiday.

Spend evenings unwinding in the large sitting room, beside the stunning marble fireplace, which houses a gas fire that can warm the room while you snuggle up to enjoy a film on the wall mounted TV, while the dual aspect windows allow in lots of light and showcase views across the town.

From here, move into the well-equipped and stylish kitchen, kitted out with NEFF integrated appliances, a large double oven and Siematic induction hob, allowing you to cook delicious meals for the group, to be enjoyed together at the dining table as you make plans for the coming days.

Throw open the double doors and head out onto the roof terrace; with sun loungers, a seating area, a barbecue for alfresco dining, outdoor lighting and a hot tub, providing a luxurious end to each day, as you relax and admire the view at any time of day.

You will also find a handy utility and cloakroom on this floor, alongside a traditional-style super-king-size double bedroom with zip/link feature, catering to a variety of guests, with a stunning cast iron fireplace surrounded by a granite hearth and an en-suite walk-in shower, where you can begin each day with an invigorating rinse.

Head up to the second floor to discover two more bedrooms; a master super-king-size bedroom with zip/link feature, large fitted wardrobes with mirrored doors and large picture windows that allow in plenty of light, and a final super-king-size with zip/link feature, which boasts a feature fireplace and incredible lake and fell views from the window.

Both rooms benefit from access to two stunning bathrooms; a large and contemporary white bathroom with a freestanding bath, and a wetroom-style bathroom with a walk-in shower, both of which benefit from underfloor heating.

Step outside of the apartment and you're right in the centre of the bustling town, with an endless choice of shops, supermarkets, pubs and cafés right on your doorstep.

Just as close is the iconic World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, a museum dedicated to the author's work, while just across Windermere lake is her former home, the National Trust's HiIl Top.

Spend the day discovering other attractions like the Windermere Jetty Museum on the lake, as well as the 1920’s Royalty Cinema, The Old Laundry Theatre and Blackwell Arts & Crafts House.

Take advantage of your incredible location, just a stone's throw from the iconic Windermere lake, and hire a boat to enjoy the exceptional views of England’s largest natural lake, or try your hand at a watersport if you're feeling adventurous, including canoeing, paddleboarding and waterskiing.

Hop on a boat trip north towards Ambleside, passing the outdoor attraction of Brockhole, which offers a visitor's centre, zip-lines, kayaking, archery and mini golf.

Ambleside itself is home to the Lakeland Motor Museum, a 2nd century Roman fort and wonderful walking trails through parkland and woodland, one of which encompasses Stock Ghyll Force, a 70ft waterfall with a scenic viewing platform.

From here, you are within easy reach of the National Trust's Wray Castle, a 19th century Neo-Gothic structure with children's play rooms and extensive grounds to roam, as well as the incredible woodland of Grizedale National Forest, the exhilarating Go Ape treetop rope course, the incredible Coniston Water and The Old Man of Coniston peak, offering hikers picturesque view of the lake from the top.

Bank Chambers is an incredible base for an unforgettable Lake District holiday with your loved ones.
