About Kempton

Kempton, refurbished to a high standard in 2024, is a modern and spacious family holiday house located in one of the most popular destinations in the Lake District National Park; Bowness-on-Windermere. The location is a perfect choice for anyone wanting a beautifully decorated, well equipped 3 bedroom house within walking distance of both Bowness and Windermere village centres where you will find many shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, supermarkets and also the beautiful and inviting Lake Windermere itself! Kempton is an upside house making the most of the beautiful view of Lake Windermere from the large lounge upstairs. The 3 fully en-suite king size bedrooms, sleeping 6 plus an infant in a travel cot, are all ground floor and the spacious lounge, stylish dining room and very well equipped kitchen are all on the first floor with an upstairs loo too! The house has a charming and spacious enclosed patio with table, chairs, BBQ and parasol for those balmy evenings where you can enjoy a few drinks after a busy day out enjoying yourselves! The huge bonus with Kempton is that it has parking for 3 cars making it the perfect choice for a large family or group of friends who are looking to enjoy a Lake District getaway in superb, great value holiday accommodation in a wonderful popular location.

Windermere is incredibly scenic regardless of the weather or the time of the year that you visit. It is difficult for a photograph to do justice to the magnificence of the landscape, and it is only when you see the mountains and the vast body of water in real life that you appreciate why the Victorians revered Windermere as such a stylish holiday destination. Despite its ongoing popularity, the Lakes still feels rugged and wild, and you don't have to walk far from town to find yourself immersed in this incredible landscape which has inspired artists and writers over the centuries.

One of the best ways to enjoy sightseeing is on the water. Whether you charter a boat, hire a kayak, or book a ticket on one of the regular hop-on-hop-off sightseeing tours, make sure you get out onto the water at least once. Fans of Peter Rabbit, Mrs Tiggywinkle and Jemima Puddleduck should put aside a few hours to tour The World of Beatrix Potter, while the exhibits at Windermere Jetty bring the history of this area vividly to life. Nearby attractions include activity centres where visitors can go quad biking, walk along a high-rope course, shoot clay pigeons and try their hand at archery. There are golf courses, stables, country houses, safari parks and zoos, and miles of beautiful footpaths, bridleways and cycle routes.

The owners of Kempton have created a space where guests feel as if they can relax and put their feet up as soon as they arrive, comfortable enough for family life yet distinctive enough that you do not doubt that you're on holiday.
