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

This luxury cottage has been furnished with care and attention to detail and by using the skills of local craftsmen, boasts charm and authentic individuality which is certain to appeal. Gowan Bank Farm Cottage is situated on a working farm set in 400 acres of picture perfect countryside. Nestled just outside the Lake District National Park hot spots of Windermere and Bowness, in the popular village of Ings. The 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 routes from the doorstep. A much enjoyed route in fair weather is the ½-mile stroll over the field track to the popular Watermill Inn and Brewery at Ings which brews its own beer. The village of Staveley is close by. This is also a popular area for cyclists with plentiful routes, as challenging as required and always offer outstanding scenery. Guests 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. Steamer rides along the lake offer a relaxing way in which to take in the views of this picturesque area.
Gowan Bank Farm Cottage is a delightful conversion of a former stable with 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. Fabulous uninterrupted views over the surrounding fells are particularly special from the bedroom windows. The modern en-suite bathroom offers a fabulous freestanding bath and high quality fixtures and fittings. There are beautiful views over the farm land and wood and out of the bedroom windows to the Langdales and Coniston Old Man. Beach 17 miles. Shop pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    A lovely farm stay. The owners, George and Amanda are very friendly and went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable and had a memorable holiday. The cottage was very warm and lacked nothing. We particularly loved learning about the farm and seeing the cows being fed. We're really hoping to go back before too long.

    A beautify cottage set on a working farm. The views from every window are so enjoyable and relaxing in the garden you feel in the middle of no-where it is so peaceful. The interior of the cottage is well furnished and the kitchen has all the essentials. The walk-in shower is a real plus. The owners Amanda and George are really friendly and an excursion around the farm is on offer. We will definitely go back to Gowan Bank Farm in the future.

    The cottage was beautifully appointed and equipped, it was brilliant to be staying on the farm during lambing season and the bed was wonderful - very important after a long day walking in the fells!
