Full of elegant charm, this fabulous holiday home affords an exceptional position overlooking Lake Windermere in the very heart of the Lake District National Park. Sleeping up to six guests in three exceptionally comfortable bedrooms, Westward Ho sits in one of the area's most desirable locations and is a superb choice for a Lakeland holiday whether you are going away with family or friends.
With a large garden that leads down to the jetty and water's edge, a cosy sitting room with open fire, well equipped kitchen and dining room where you can dine whilst looking out over the lake, Westward Ho is every bit as special inside as it is out.
Spend your days soaking up the views and relaxing in the tranquility that surrounds the property, or get out and about and explore the area with an abundance of attractions close by. Lace up your walking boots and enjoy fabulous walks straight from the front door, or hop on the Hawkshead Ferry and discover the beauty of the west side of Lake Windermere. For those with their own boat, you can launch just half a mile away, with mooring available on the private jetty at the bottom of the garden.
Within just a couple of minutes by car you can be in Bowness or neighbouring Windermere which offer an excellent range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. Hire a boat and explore the shoreline under your own steam, or take a Lake Cruise for a relaxing way of seeing the sights.
Alternatively, simply stay put and enjoy the magical lake setting from your own little oasis of calm at Westward Ho.
