Chase Cottage offers guests the best of both worlds - It is a stunning comfortable character cottage, set in a wonderful location in the village of Bowland Bridge within the Lake District.
Bowland Bridge is in the peaceful Winster Valley, in the south-east corner of the Lake District National Park. Although the Lakeland "honeypots" are only a short drive away, Bowland Bridge is a lovely secluded hamlet, set amidst quiet hills, valleys and woods, and reached by a network of winding lanes.
Bowness and Windermere are a few miles to the north, and Lake Windermere itself is just over the hill. The cottage is next door but one to a pub and the well-known Masons Arms is just five hundred yards away, so there are plenty of reasons to avoid cooking!
There is no shortage of things to do locally. Firstly there are numerous pleasant walks from the doorstep, including one to the splendid viewpoint of Gummer's Howe. For the more adventurous, the high Lakeland fells are within easy reach.
Nearby Lakeside has an aquarium, the lake cruisers and a steam railway, with the Lakeland Motor Museum a couple of miles away. Bowness, Kendal, Windermere, Ambleside, Coniston, Hawkshead and Grasmere are also all within a thirty minute drive.
All in all, this is the perfect get-away-from-it-all cottage, where you can be as active or lazy as you want!
