    Lovely place to stay.

The property

Ingle Burrow is a 3 bedroom traditional Victorian Lakeland Cottage, which is both cosy and charming.

The homelike atmosphere has been created by the owner with an individual style and cosy comforts.

The open fire in the sitting room can be enjoyed from the large sofas and the wood burner in the dining room creates warmth and atmosphere if you dine at home. In a quiet location, close to the centre of Windermere and minutes from Bowness and the Lake.

A perfect base for those wanting first class accommodation and the benefit of being able to leave the car ehind in the private parking area to the rear of the property. Windermere is easily reached by car or train and a perfect place to explore the whole of the Lake District.

Both these vibrant villages have plenty of cafes and restaurants and quaint, unique shops, a must for your souvenirs to take home.

From the lake you can hop on a lake cruise to Ambleside or Lakeside, with stop offs en-route.

The evening turns into a hive of activity with the cobbled streets and lively atmosphere of the sol and tapas bar to the more traditional tucked away pubs and local ales.

From Windermere you can head north on the A591 also a local bus route to Ambleside, Grasmere and Keswick, easily accessed by the local 555 bus service.

Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake. The area is ideally situated for exploring all that this region has to offer, whether by foot, bike, car, railway or bus; and is within easy reach of attractions such as the spectacular Langdales, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park, with its delightful walks and famous outdoor sculptures, mountain biking and “Go-Ape” adventure park, Ullswater, Kendal, Keswick, stone circles, Roman forts and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
