The property

In Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, High Rigg is a wonderful second-floor apartment.

It has two bedrooms, off-street parking, and is just a short distance from Lake Windermere, making it ideal for a getaway with the whole family.

After a long day of exploring, come back to your home-away-from-home and unwind in front of the Smart TV with a movie the whole family will enjoy.

When the children get hungry, the kitchen is well-stocked with all the tools you need to whip up a tasty treat or a home-cooked meal.

As a family, gather around the dinner table and listen to each other's favourite parts of the day.

Later on, relax with a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the trees that line Lake Windermere.

Check on the kids in the twin room before going to sleep in the double bedroom, which has plenty of storage space for your personal items.

Fall asleep and recharge your batteries for another day of fun in the Lake District.

A beautiful lake town in the heart of the Lake District National Park, the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere, is just a short walk from High Rigg.

The World of Beatrix Potter, National Trust's Wray Castle, Brockhole on Windermere, and Treetop Lake District's Treetop Trek and Treetop Nets are just a few of the many family-friendly attractions here.

If you're looking for something to eat or drink after a day of sightseeing, The Ship Inn and Porto Restaurant are great options in the town.

You can also visit the market town of Kendal, which is a great place to shop for souvenirs.

If you're looking for a peaceful place to unwind, this is the place.

The Kendal Museum and the Lakeland Museum are among the town's most popular tourist attractions, and no trip to Kendal would be complete without a taste of the renowned Kendal Mint Cake!

Ambleside, a nearby town in the Lake District, is well worth a visit.

Windermere's tranquil waters and the dramatic peaks of the surrounding mountains make for an abundance of natural beauty.

One of the many National Trust properties is a great place for history enthusiasts to visit, and be sure to pop into Zeffirellis, The Lily Bar, or Copper Pot to refuel and relax after a day of exploring.

High Rigg is perfectly located for a family getaway to the Lake District
