This warm and cosy apartment is set between Windermere and Bowness in the very heart of the Lakes, with everything on your doorstep to make a perfect holiday.

This contemporary apartment is the ideal warm and welcoming base for a couple or family to experience your next Lake District adventure. Only a short walk from the most popular Lake District towns, you will quickly feel this is a true home from home and a place you can relax in. Within a short walk you will be in the vibrant town of Bowness-On-Windermere with all it has to offer, from pubs and restaurants to cafés, delis and coffee shops. A short walk in the other direction will bring you to the town centre of Windermere with its own selection of shops, restaurants and supermarkets. Then during the day, head down to the shore of Lake Windermere, take in the beautiful views before joining a tour of the lake via the steamboats or if you prefer, hire some Kayaks and have your own mini adventures.

On entering the property, you firstly enter the spacious open-plan kitchen/diner with beautiful bay windows which capture the sun. Here you will find everything you need to cook up a storm with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer along with a dining table and chairs to sit and enjoy your meal. Head along the corridor to the high-ceilinged lounge with two leather sofas and Smart TV making this the perfect spot to relax with a film after a day’s exploring. Also, there is a separate WC located opposite the lounge. Head upstairs to the first floor where there are two bedrooms, two twin zip-and-links (which can be made into super-king-sizes on request). Both rooms have plenty of storage space and retain many of the old property’s features. Finally, there is the bathroom with bath, separate shower cubicle and WC.

There is no outside space with this property. There is roadside parking available.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage was perfect and we couldn't pick any faults. It was in a great location. Right in-between both Bowness and Windermere town centre, in a nice quiet street. The cottage had all the facilities we could need, and we really enjoyed our chill out time there after long walks through the day.

This is a comfortable, spacious, and well equipped cottage. Its conveniently located for walking into both Bowness and Windermere for shops, restaurants, and the lake. An excellent base for visiting the Lake District. The property is generally clean although would benefit from a deep clean particularly in the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay here.

Upper Thornbarrow is in an ideal location for exploring Windermere and Bowness, just a pleasant 10/15 minute walk into each. The cottage was beautifully furnished, clean and very well equipped.

This property was immaculately clean and well equipped. I was concerned having read a previous review regarding lack of cleanliness, but we found it to be spotless.
