Spacious luxury cottage Nr. Bowness & Windermere. Stunning views. On Dales Way.

Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Dec-2016
Sleeps 2, large bedroom with king sized bed, bathroom, separate bath and shower.

Let your romantic side run free in this stunning 4* Gold Award retreat, gazing out over rolling countryside near the village of Crook, a few miles from the tourist centre of Bowness and Lake Windermere. From the moment you step through the door, the sophistication of Glen Rowan announces itself in style. You'll love preparing for intimate evenings in the elegant kitchen, and sinking into the leather sofa to enjoy far-reaching views by day and fire-warmed movies by night. Wake up to wonderful Lakeland mornings in the designer-chic bedroom, take refreshing or bracing walks starting straight from your door (situated on the Dales Way) and pop into the nearby Sun Inn for good food and drink. Pack your camera for those sunsets and panoramic views from the patio!

Private parking for 2 cars. Enter to the ground floor and the generous kingsize master bedroom, with deep weft carpet and fully tiled, attractive en-suite bathroom with under floor heating, bath and separate shower. Upstairs to the vaulted open plan living / dining / kitchen space, with a full wall of glass to the living area and wonderful views from the contemporary fitted kitchen. Making your morning coffee will be an absolute joy. The lounge area has a wall-mounted fire and large wall-mounted TV / DVD for cosy nights in. Doors lead from the first floor to a patio with magnificent views.

Glen Rowan is ideally located for a peaceful Lake District break, near to the attractive village of Crook and only a short drive from the popular attractions at Bowness and Lake Windermere.

Crook is pleasantly separate from the more crowded towns and surrounded by views of rolling hills and the Lyth and Winster Valleys. Traditional pubs serving delicious food are dotted throughout this green and pleasant area. Good food, peace and quiet are guaranteed.

Steeped in history and folklore, Crook was once home to the area's mill and industrial workers. Traditional cottages dating back to the 17th century still stand. The Lyth Valley comes alive with Damson blossom in the spring. Make sure you try some of the Damson delicacies on offer at the local bars and restaurants. Why not take home a bottle of Damson Gin as a souvenir?

Lake shore attractions, sophisticated shops and evening entertainments are easily reached in Bowness village, just a few miles away. On your way, you'll also pass the prestigious Windermere Golf Club.

Wonderfully comfortable holiday home.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, comfortable property, exactly as described. Situated up a narrow lane on a hillside with fantastic views. The owners (who live in the adjoining house) made us feel very welcome without being intrusive. Very well equipped and extremely spacious, warm and within easy reach of Lake Windermere. Wonderful walks nearby for all abilities and plenty of places to eat out but check opening times as many are only open at weekends in low season (same goes for National Trust)

Beautiful Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Glen Rowan is a beautiful and secluded cottage just a few minutes drive from the shores of Lake Windermere. It is finished to a very high standard and the lounge has a wonderful, huge window with views over the fabulous landscape. Pauline and Dennis have done a great job. They could easily have turned it into a 2 bedroom place for more money but have opted for making a luxurious holiday home, perfect for couples seeking a romantic break. It's so beautiful that when it rained we were perfectly happy to spend a cosy day indoors. There is lots to do close by in Bowness on Windermere and for the real ale lovers there are 2 breweries within hiking distance. We recommend dinner at the Watermill followed by a moonlit stomp home over the moors. The owners live next door but we barely noticed anyone else around. Dennis has some great recommendations for local walks and places to eat. We would definitely stay again!

Delightful cottage in beatiful quiet countryside

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay. We only had one week and wished it was longer. The cottage is immaculate with all modern conveniences. It is situated on a quiet country lane with panoramic views from the huge windows over the rolling hills. It is central to all the highlights of the Lake District, and close to the big town of Kendal for all your shopping needs. This was a perfect retreat for a couple who want peace and serenity, but easy access to all tourist activities. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to anyone. Keith and Glenda, Australia.

1st class, get away from it all cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was spacious, clean and had all the amenities we needed.

It had stunning views with plenty of wildlife to watch, birds of all different kinds, rabbits and even a deer.

The owners were very helpful and provided delicious scones on our arrival.

They really made us feel welcome.

We would recommend this property to our family and friends.

Beautiful cottage. Luxurious stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely base to come back to each day after walking in the Lake District. Very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the fresh baked scones, butter and jam were a nice touch. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Glen Rowan.
