With uninterrupted views over the surrounding fells, this delightful cottage is perfect for a romantic break in the beautiful Lake District.

A delightful conversion of a former stable, Gowan Bank Farm Cottage is situated on a working farm set in 400 acres of picture perfect countryside. Located just outside the Lake District hotspots of Windermere and Bowness in the popular village of Ings, the cottage offers a perfect bolthole for couples. It has been sympathetically converted to a good standard resulting in quality accommodation full of character. It combines the expectation of guests wanting somewhere to enjoy a romantic weekend or special occasion, and those just simply looking for delightful accommodation just for two. The cottage has been furnished with care and attention to detail, and by using the skills of local craftsmen has a charm and authentic individuality certain to appeal. Its slate floors, Herdwick wool carpeting, beams and internal stone walls, all add to the attraction.
The open plan living room offers a cosy wood burner, perfect for a romantic evening in. The spacious bedroom with super kingsize bed is enhanced with delightful furniture, all individual pieces handmade locally. Fabulous uninterrupted views over the surrounding fells are particularly special from the bedroom windows. The contemporary en-suite bathroom offers a fabulous free standing bath and quality fixtures and fittings, with the benefit of a private rear garden, couples have the opportunity to take advantage of warmer weather to enjoy a drink or al fresco meal whilst enjoying the fell views.
Gowan Bank Farm itself dates back over 400 years and is still a working farm today. The outstanding setting allows for walkers of all abilities to find a route on the doorstep that is sure to offer beautiful views from the off. The Dales Way runs close by, and a much enjoyed route in fair weather is the ½ mile stroll over the field track to the popular watermill at Ings. Ings is on the main route into Windermere and has a well stocked shop within the petrol garage, and a popular cafe where you can enjoy a cooked breakfast, or afternoon tea.
Staveley village is close by and offers a traditional and popular typical Lakes village with a selection of shops, welcoming pubs and a brewery. This is a popular area too for cyclists, the routes are plentiful, as challenging as required and always offer outstanding scenery. Couples wanting to enjoy the mix of facilities available in Windermere and Bowness will not be disappointed. Independent retailers, pavement cafés and wine bars sit close by stunning Lake Windermere.
