As you arrive by car via Langrigge Park The Lookout Lodge is unassuming but once inside you will see why we called it The Lookout Lodge! Even in the Lake District houses with “lake views” are in very short supply. There are not many properties, particularly in Bowness on Windermere, from where you can enjoy an outlook like this! The Lookout Lodge is elevated above Bowness village a short distance from the shores of Lake Windermere and the village centre. The property is cleverly designed to make the most of its position.

Even in the Lake District houses with “lake views” are in very short supply. There are not many properties, particularly in Bowness on Windermere, from where you can enjoy an outlook like this! The Lookout Lodge is elevated above Bowness village a short distance from the shores of Lake Windermere and the village centre. The property is cleverly designed to make the most of its position. The crowning jewel of the property is perhaps the roof top terrace! As the house is built into the hillside the upper floor (which is the ground floor from the driveway but first floor at the rear) comprises of the living accommodation. The first floor includes is a large lounge which features a real log burning stove. Due to the elevation, the lounge enjoys a fantastic lake view from the south west facing bi-fold doors. These give access to the roof top terrace. The large south facing window of the lounge provides views across the leafy outlying areas of the village and the lower slopes of Brant Fell. The lounge has large leather sofas and a real oak floor. The kitchen / dining area is modern and features a range style electric oven with gas hob. In keeping with the local areas the floor is finished in slate. All the usual facilities are provided including a dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave etc. The room enjoys a lake view and provides access to the roof terrace via south facing patio doors. Whilst enjoying breakfast in the dining area can watch the early morning mist role off the lake. The roof terrace itself is south west facing. You can enjoy fantastic lake views across Bowness Bay and Belle Isle towards Claife Heights beyond. In the evening the sun sets over Claife Heights to the west and so you can sit out on the terrace and enjoy the evening sun over a drink or perhaps dine out on the terrace whilst taking in the wonderful scenery. Throughout the day you can watch the steamers come and go from Bowness pier and the sail boats departing from the sailing club. The lower floor is ground floor at the rear. This lower floor comprises of two double bedrooms, a twin room and a bunk room together with a family bathroom and separate shower room. The larger bathroom has a WC, wash basin and a separate bath and shower cubical. This has been fully refurnished. The smaller bathroom has a WC, wash basin and a shower cubical. There is a third WC on the upper floor. Both of the double bedrooms enjoy lake views. The bunk room and twin room both have garden views. Outside there is a secluded garden from where pedestrian access can be gained to Brantfell Road. From the garden gate it is approximately a 150 meter walk to the village centre and a further 100 meters to the lake shore. The location could not be more central! We refer to the uphill side of the property (the Langrigge Park entrance) as the tradesman's entrance. Here all the practicalities are taken care of: - In Bowness village parking can be a real issue and many holiday lets in the village only have “on street” parking. We can offer “off street” parking for three cars on the private drive and so there are no worries on that score. The Lookout Lodge has a garage where you can securely store your bikes or canoes etc. The Lookout Lodge is double glazed throughout and has gas fired central heating which is instantly controllable and provides hot water on demand. We can provide a travel cot and high chair at no extra cost. Bedding is included in the price but please note that we do not provide towels. More

The Lookout Lodge is located five minutes walk from the town, in easy reach of bars and restaurants, but far enough up the hill to be lovely and quiet. I liked the layout of the house with views of the lake from the kitchen diner,...More

My family and I stayed at the Lookout Lodge back in September, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is excellent; very close to Bowness town, but far enough away to not be part of the everyday bustle with swarms of other tourists. The walk to...More
