    “Really enjoyed our stay at Ivy Bank.”

    Very well equipped - kitchen has everything you need and more. Property is very clean and extra measures due to COVID were clearly taken i.e open windows, which was really good to see. First floor bathroom was really nice, modern and clean! Bedrooms were great and beds were comfy, however pillows were a little hard (thankfully I had taken my own anyway!). Every room has a TV which was great for the evening, although the TV's in bedrooms are a little on the small side. TV in the open plan lounge is a smart TV so we were able to access Netflix (which we were very happy about!) Internet connection was good, although occasionally dropped out for a couple of seconds but this was not very often. Location is brilliant, literally a 30 second walk to the shops, and a 5 minute walk down to the lake. Car parking space is small but fit our estate car in at an angle (just). We had a second car too but parking wasn't an issue as there's plenty of parking on the roads near to the property. Overall enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again!

The property

Set on the fringes of Bowness Bay, near the delightful town of Windermere, is this traditional terraced property boasting a contemporary interior.

Ideal for couples or friends, this slate cottage has been thoughtfully designed, with a high-quality finish and plush furnishings welcoming you inside.

After a busy day exploring the sights and walking through stunning Lake District countryside, relax in front of the woodburner and take in the uplifting atmosphere around you.

The living room is open-plan and situated on the lower ground level, with a dining area and kitchen, wonderfully appointed for preparing those tasty evening meals together.

Nestled on the ground floor, just off the hallway is the bathroom, followed by a double bedroom with its very own en-suite.

Two further bedrooms rest upstairs on the first floor.

Outside you have off-road parking and access to all the shops, pubs and eateries within Windermere and Bowness.

You also have many other towns and villages in the area worth a visit, such as Grasmere, Hawkshead and Ambleside, with Ulverston and Cartmel to the south.

Take a trip over to Grizedale Forest, where many outdoor activities will excite kids and adults alike.

Try mountain biking, Segway treks and zip wires, or simply enjoy a gentle stroll through ancient woodland.

A superb destination and base to choose for your next much-deserved holiday.
