About Squirrel Bank

Squirrel Bank House is a romantic Lake District holiday apartment within walking distance of the shore of Windermere and a stroll from all the shops, cafes, bars and other amenities Bowness has to offer. It's a superb choice if you want to escape the rat race and spend time together without distraction, immersing yourself in the beauty of the Lake District with its majestic mountains, spectacular lakes, rugged fells, and characterful towns and villages. Think of Squirrel Bank House as your hidey-hole to which you can retreat, emerging from its cocoon to explore, eat and drink as you choose or closing the door to read, share leisurely meals, and relax in the covered outdoor hot tub.

Bowness is one of the most desirable Lake District destinations because it is so picturesque and because it's convenient for some of the most popular sights and attractions in the national park. It was the Victorians who made the Lakes a popular place for a holiday, relishing the plentiful opportunities to exchange cramped, noisy cities for blissful peace and fresh air. The legacy of the original tourists is evident in the elegant buildings and attractions like the Windermere Steamers.

Attractions in Windermere and the surrounding area include historic houses like Beatrix Potter's Hill Top, The World of Beatrix Potter, and the Lakes Aquarium. Admire the parklands of Sizergh estate and the walk from Pooley Bridge to Grasmere, where William Wordsworth saw the field of daffodils that inspired his beloved poem. Spend a day at Fell Foot and another exploring around Derwent Water and Borrowdale. Cycling, kayaking, wild swimming and sailing are always fun, though you'll probably want a wetsuit if you're taking a dip in winter. Other places to see whilst in the Lake District include Kendal and Keswick. You're around an hour from Penrith, just over an hour from Gretna Green and the Scottish Border, and within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Squirrel Bank House is perfect for minimoons, birthdays and anniversaries as well as romantic stays. The owner has two other lovely holiday cottages in Bowness. Information about these is available on their website.
