Clover Nook - Bowness on Windermere, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 10

Clover Nook

Clover Nook is the perfect holiday retreat for large groups of up to ten guests, whether you want a venue for a celebration or holiday with friends and family. Ideally placed, it sits just a short five minute stroll from the very heart of the popular town of Bowness-on-Windermere with its Victorian charm and great range of amenities and attractions on the doorstep.

Sitting in a tranquil spot, Clover Nook affords an idyllic position where you can relax and unwind with the benefit of having all the amenities needed close to hand. Cleverly designed, this substantial property offers plenty of space and facilities for everyone with five bedrooms (four have en-suites), more living rooms than needed, ample bath/shower rooms, an incredibly social kitchen and dining area and plenty of outside living space for the warmer months.

Located half way along Lake Windermere (Britain's largest lake), Bowness attracts tourist from far and wide and offers lovely shops to browse, a great choice of restaurants and pubs, superb water sports, fantastic walks and some of the areas top attractions including The World of Beatrix Potter, Blackwell (one of the country's finest Arts and Crafts Houses) and lake cruises.

Catch a boat to Lakeside and visit the Aquarium with a multitude of different species, or hop on the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway for a nostalgic trip with stunning scenery along the way. Alternatively, take a boat to Ambleside, another bustling Victorian town with great eateries, shops, pubs and the spectacular Stock Ghyll Force Waterfall.

Whilst almost joined, Bowness is within walking distance of Windermere town which has good rail (and bus) connections for those who prefer to use public transport to explore the area. Alternatively, explore the area by bike or foot and enjoy the many wonderful walks such as Orrest Head, one of Wainwright's favourites and a great source of inspiration for him.

Also within easy reach for day trips out are Coniston with its beautiful lake and challenging peaks (tackle The Old Man if you are up for the hike!); the pretty village of Grasmere (home of Wordsworth); Grizedale Forest with its tracks and trails for walkers and mountain bikers with sculptures along the way; the historic market town of Kendal; Ullswater and the Cumbrian coast with attractive resorts such as Grange-over-Sands and Cartmel (home to the famous and magnificent sticky toffee pudding!).
