    “We first stayed your lovely cottage exactly a year ago and were enchanted with it then.”

    It really felt like home this time and I'm sure that this will not be our last visit. thanks very much.

The property

Dalesway Cottage is the perfect retreat for a family of four seeking to escape to the countryside of Cumbria.

Sitting in an idyllic position with lovely views, just a short stroll down to the excitement of Bowness-on-Windermere's town centre, this enchanting end-of-terrace is the ultimate home-from-home at any time of year.

The open-plan living space makes a delightful spot to host all of your social occasions; gather around the dining table and enjoy a family-favourite dish prepared in the amply equipped kitchen, with its stylish, grey units hosting a good range of appliances, before moving into the sitting area and lounging in front of the woodburning stove, its warmth providing a homely feel to the room as you snuggle up with a film on the television.

For some quiet time, the conservatory offers a wonderful sun trap for you to escape to with a good book, as you overlook the little ones playing in your private garden, or sit out in the sun with some alfresco dining, the perfect way to end each day of excitement.

Move up the stairs to find the two bedrooms in the form of a double and a twin bedroom, both offering bright and airy accommodation, with the gleaming, family shower room serving both.

On the second floor sits the games room, boasting a good range of books and games for the little ones to enjoy, there is wonder around every corner of this property.

The local town of Bowness-on-Windermere offers a wonderful range of attractions, from the simplicities of shops and eateries of all kinds, to attractions such as The World of Beatrix Potter, watersports along its lake and a plethora of walking routes, there's something here for every type of adventurer.

Take a trip to Brockhole and experience your settings from a different view on its high wire tree top course, or head to Kendal to enrich yourself in history by vising the town's imposing castle, enticing Quaker Tapestry Museum and explore the talent at the Abbot Hall Art Gallery.

With so much to explore on your doorstep, Dalesway Cottage is the perfect countryside escape at any time of year.
