    “Great location for the Lakes”

    Loved the location of this duplex apartment, in the centre of Windermere so a very short walk to all the local amenities. Parking for one car is at the back of the property, away from the road, down a buttock-clenching private road when you have an SUV! The property was very clean and cosy but we were a little disappointed by the layout of the lounge (at a right angle to the television is not very good for your posture and chronic neck problems; we had to move the furniture to face the television) and the sofas were so uncomfortable we had to use the cushions to make it more bearable to sit in. I hope the owners have them replaced in the near future if they haven't already. Excellent amount of storage for clothes and toiletries with built in wardrobes in the master bedroom. If you like a soft mattress, then you will love the bed in the master bedroom. Had a lovely week long stay here.

The property

The famous village of Bowness and the shores of Lake Windermere are a delightful 15 minute walk away and host the Beatrix Potter Exhibition, lake ferry trips and watersports and historic houses and gardens.
