This fabulous, first-floor apartment of Helm Rigg, rests in the picturesque town of Bowness-on-Windermere.

Positioned in an enviable location, with easy access to the delights of the Lake District National park, Flat 6 is the perfect base for a family of four.

The apartment is accompanied by a handy designated parking space, for your convenience.

Make your way inside to be welcomed by a well-appointed open-plan living space where everything you need for a self-catering stay is within easy reach.

Settle down with your loved ones in front of the Smart TV and enjoy a movie night; choose from the selection of DVDs that have been kindly provided.

The kitchen is close-by and hosts a good range of appliances that any budding chef would be satisfied with.

When dinner is ready, enjoy it at the adjoining breakfast bar or at the close-by dining table; afterward, why not finish off the evening with a steaming mug of hot chocolate on the balcony, or curl up on a bean bag with one of the books provided?

When night falls, choose between two lovely double bedrooms to enjoy a well-earned rest in; both rooms enjoy access to a bathroom that features colourful, green accents and a p-shaped bath for you to savour a relaxing soak in.

A leisurely stroll brings you to the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere where an array of amenities and attractions await, from The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Windermere Jetty Museum to Windermere Outdoor Adventure Centre and Miller Ground.

Venture across Lake Windermere via the Bowness-on-Windermere ferry, where you can explore the sights of the National Trust's Claife Viewing Station and Claife Heights, along with the impressive, Neo-gothic Wray Castle.

North of Bowness-on-Windermere is the town of Ambleside, where you can explore the Ambleside Roman Fort, visit the enchanting Stock Ghyll Force Waterfall and embark on a stroll through Borrans Park, or the nearby Stagshaw Garden.

There is so much to see in the Lake District, with ample walking trails winding through the close-by settlements of Rydal, Grasmere and Kelbarrow, which showcase the dramatic landscapes of the Park.

Create memories that will last a lifetime at Helm Rigg.
