The property

This quaint, stone-built home, Bluebells, is located just steps from the centre of Windermere's bustling town.

Enjoying close proximity to the serene waters of Lake Windermere and featuring a spacious interior that has been wonderfully designed with visitors' comfort in mind, Bluebells is an idyllic location from which to experience the beauty of the Lake District National Park.

Before unloading your luggage and heading inside to begin your memorable staycation, take a moment to admire the quaint stone-built exterior of your new home-from-home.

Discover a snug sitting room as you unlace your muddy walking boots, where you can look forward to gathering together amongst the warmth of the gas fire to enjoy a movie marathon with your loved ones.

As you progress through the property, discover a bright, well-appointed kitchen, complete with modern fixtures and fittings and equipped with a range of conveniences ready for any aspiring chef to create delicious meals for their guests to enjoy at the dining table.

Summer is the perfect season to enjoy a meal outside on the patio, surrounded by the lush greenery of the surrounding shrubbery; the covered seating area gives an ideal site to enjoy the fresh countryside air, whatever the weather.

Returning indoors and climbing the stairs to the first floor, you'll discover two large twin bedrooms, each with its own TV, serviced by the family bathroom, boasting both a bath and an overhead shower for guests to enjoy a relaxing dip or a quick morning rinse.

The third and final bedroom, located on the second floor, features a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room, ideal for beating those morning queues!

All of Windermere's local amenities, including a high-end Booths supermarket, excellent for stocking up on essentials, along with a fantastic range of pubs, charming cafes, and sophisticated restaurants, are just a short walk from your doorstep.

To learn more about Windermere's rich history, visit nearby Bowness, just a short drive away, where you can tour the Windermere Jetty Museum, or discover the enchanting attraction of The World of Beatrix Potter, where interactive displays tell the tale of how the famous children story came to light.

Visitors to Lake Windermere, England's largest lake, can participate in a variety of watersports, while those seeking a more relaxing experience can rent a boat and cruise around the lake's peaceful waters.

Consider taking a trip down to Lakeside on the Windermere Steamer to see freshwater and marine species at the Lakes Aquarium or the historic Stott Park Bobbin Mill, built in the late 1800s.

Visit the Lake District National Park, which spans over 2000 square kilometres of rocky fells, open moorland, and glittering lakes, and while you're there, try your hand at the nation's tallest mountain, Scafell Pike, by taking on the strenuous ascent.

For a trip to the Lake District, Bluebells is the ideal location.
