Very spacious well decorated apartment in the heart of Bowness. Easy access to all of Windermere and makes a really good base if you want to travel around the south lakes. We visited Gretna green on one day and it takes less than 80 mins even going over the Kirkstone Pass ( a must if you haven't already done so)... More
