About the neighbourhood
Location You'll find wonderful walks in every direction from this peaceful rural Lake District cottage. The surrounding Lyth Valley is very picturesque, famous for its damsons and damson blossom in spring. A favourite route is the short but steep ascent of Gummers How, between Lyth Valley and Lake Windermere. From the top, you'll enjoy one of the finest lake views in the Lake District. On the way to Bowness village, you'll find the Windermere Golf Club, with a superb scenic course to try. In Bowness itself, you'll find everything you need for stocking up the kitchen; supermarket, local shops, delicatessens and more. There are also a wide range of restaurants in Bowness. For a special occasion, try The Postilion Restaurant on Ash Street.
Getting around
The easiest way to get around is definitely by car, however once you reach the nearby villages of Windermere and Bowness and the nearby towns of Grange over Sands and Kendal there are buses and trains as well as ferries available for transport.
