The property

In a prime location for exploring the natural delights of the Lake District, Tarn Hows is a great base for a family looking for a rural escape at any time of year.

A contemporary-style cottage in close reach of an array of attractions, there’s no better dwelling for your getaway to Cumbria.

Step inside to find a tastefully decorated sitting room to the front of the property, with floral wallpaper bringing a homely aura to the room amongst the plush sofa arrangement, gather here in the evenings with a family-favourite film on the television for a quiet evening in.

Following through to the rear of the property will bring you to the spacious open-plan living area; find all of the contemporary appliances you could need in the kitchen to prepare a tasty treat for the whole group, with plenty of room for little helpers to get involved too!

Gather together around the dining table and toast to a wonderful holiday, whether you’re here for a celebration or a relaxing retreat, this cottage is the perfect setting to spend quality time with your loved ones.

Take a seat on the sofa sat amongst the dining area with a good book in hand in the evenings, or take your conversations out onto the patio and enjoy a chilled glass of bubbly as the sun starts to set.

On the first floor you will find four well-appointed bedrooms, with plenty of room in each to house everyone’s belongings; choose from a double, a twin with an additional cot, a further twin and a bunk room, providing a wonderful layout for every member of the group, especially those with younger children!

Positioned at the centre of the town of Windermere, you’ll find excitement on your doorstep in the form of watersporting facilities on Lake Windermere, a selection of quaint shops to while away the hours and glorious landscapes to ramble amongst.

Venture slightly further afield to discover Kendal, with even more shops to explore and accompanying eateries to end your day in, as well as bustling arts and culture scene, it makes a fabulous day out for all of the family.

In close reach of a wide range of family-friendly tourist attractions, Tarn Hows is a grand base from which to explore the Lake District with your loved ones.
