Honeysuckle Cottage is a classic stone-built cottage in Bowness-On-Windermere, Cumbria, just a stone's throw away from Lake Windermere.

The cottage is close to services and local attractions, with walking, watersports, and stunning views to enjoy, and a fantastic site for families, couples, or friends to explore the Lake District National Park.

The house is well-equipped with a traditional kitchen and contemporary facilities, making it ideal for casual meals served at the dining area's table for four.

The sitting area has been lovingly furnished with a cushioned sofa, two armchairs, and an electric fire for added ambience, perfect for relaxing with a good book or in front of the TV.

After the day's travels, you can wash your walking gear in the external utility.

The beautifully appointed bathroom upstairs features a bath with a shower over, as well as a heated towel rail.

Choose from two light and airy bedrooms, one double with a feature fireplace and dressing table, and a twin with a TV and storage space.

Start your days with a fresh cup of coffee on the front patio's bench, while the multi-level, rear garden is a private oasis for dining al fresco, enjoying a cold beverage, and escaping the hustle and bustle.

Bowness-on-Windermere is a lively town with plenty of things to do to keep visitors occupied.

For followers of the famed author, the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction is a must-see, while the National Trust - Wray Castle and Hill Top provide a taste of history.
