Rowan - Windermere, Cumbria, The Lake District, England - Sleeps 2


Rowan is a charming first floor apartment in a traditional nineteenth century Lakeland house (Pinethwaite), offering excellent value for couples seeking to explore the Lake District. Located in tranquil woodland it is the perfect place to unwind – yet the pubs, cafes and restaurants of Windermere are just a mile away. The Dales Way passes close by, and the higher fells are beyond, making Rowan an ideal base for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts.

The Lake District is a year round destination and Rowan is located near Windermere in the heart of the National Park.

Pinethwaite is a haven for wildlife: foxes, badgers, red and roe deer, and a wide range of birds, from buzzards, to long-tailed tits, warblers, fly catchers, heron and many more.

Outdoor opportunities are endless: walking, cycling climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking - all within easy reach and Windermere Golf Club is just up the lane.

The main tourist attractions of the southern Lake District are all on the doorstep – Windermere with cruise boats, Beatrix Potter attractions, Windermere Steamboat museum – and a little further away are the Aquarium of the Lakes, Car Museum, Sizergh Castle and Rheged.

Bowness and Windermere are within a couple of miles, with a wide choice of shops, tea rooms, cafes and restaurants, and modern and traditional pubs.

The popular centre of Windermere, which can be reached by railway, is surrounded by very accessible vantage points that give glorious views of the surrounding area and lake. Orrest Head, a 784’ hill north of the town, provides one of the finest panoramas – as does School Knott – immediately behind Pinethwaite. Another easy climb is Biskey Howe, a 300’ hill east of Bowness, which has quaint narrow streets and a 15th century church. Windermere, the lake, has fourteen islands, including privately owned Belle Isle with its 18th century round house.

Further afield, the list of stately homes, steam railways, lakes and tarns, homes of authors and poets, and fine eating places, is almost endless, all set in the deep valleys and foothills of the Lakeland fells, where some of Britain’s best scrambling and mountain walking may be found. Even in today’s busy world, it is possible still to leave cars and people behind, and find solitude in many parts of the Lake District.
