A Charming Haven Nestled in the Heart Of Bowness-on-Windermere

Welcome to Brinkburn, just a stone's throw away from the stunning Lake Windermere in Cumbria. This delightful cottage offers three bedrooms - two spacious king-size doubles and a cosy bunk room.

Step into the stylish and well-presented interior where a welcoming living room awaits, complete with leather sofas and a toasty wood-burning stove to keep you snug on those chilly winter nights. The dining area is perfect for gathering with plenty of seating, and the kitchen at the rear boasts modern appliances for easy family meals. You'll also find a convenient downstairs WC.

Retreat to one of the individually styled bedrooms after a day of exploration in the wonderful Cumbrian region. The family bathroom offers both a bath and shower, providing flexibility for your daily routine.

Outside, a small patio area offers picturesque views of the historic town. Brinkburn is not just a cottage; it's your gateway to the picturesque Lake District National Park. Explore the famous Lake Windermere for water activities or visit the National Trust property, Hill Top, once home to the elusive Beatrix Potter.

Location & Nearby

Positioned ideally for countryside attractions

You'll find numerous trails and hillsides for scenic walks and hikes. Brinkburn is your delightful choice for a rural-based holiday in the heart of the Lake District National Park.

And yes, two well-behaved pets are more than welcome to join your adventure!

The vibrant twin towns of Bowness and Windermere

Embark on a variety of boat trips and boat hire adventures with Windermere Lake Cruises, taking you from Bowness to Brockhole, Ambleside, and Lakeside (home to the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway at the southern end of the lake). Just 1.5 miles away, The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction and the Old Laundry Theatre await your exploration.

For a scenic adventure, take a 30-minute stroll to Orrest Head, the very spot that inspired Alfred Wainwright's iconic guidebooks. Revel in the breathtaking panorama of far-reaching views over the lake and surrounding fells. If you're feeling adventurous, head three miles to Brockhole for high wire tree-top experiences.

The historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside, and Troutbeck are a short drive away, each offering their own unique charm. And for the more energetic souls, there's a variety of watersports available at marine centres along the lake.

The region is a treasure trove of exploration, accessible by foot, bike, car, railway, or bus. From the spectacular Langdales to Beatrix Potter's Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park with its delightful walks and outdoor sculptures, to the mountain biking and 'Go-Ape' adventure park – there's something for everyone.

Lovely cottage and in a perfect location for exploring the Lakes, but with the added benefit of being able to walk into Bowness for meals, drinks, etc. Loads of lovely restaurants, takeaways and shops within a few minutes. The cottage itself has everything you need and so spacious and clean. Would definitely stay again

A lovely spacious and modern place, even nicer than seen in the photos. Beds were comfortable, whole place felt fresh and clean, and only a very short walk into the centre of Bowness. Small touches were appreciated - milk in the fridge, and a comprehensive welcome pack. Parking was a little tricky - it’s on street and a narrow road, but we managed to find somewhere not far away every day. To note for those coming with pets - there is no secure outside space. We had a fab trip and would absolutely book again!

A fantastic stay at a wonderful cottage. It felt like home. Walkable to Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere. So much to do on the doorstep as well as perfect facilities and comfort to relax in the accommodation, too. Would definitely book again.
