Location & Nearby

A REAL HAVEN JUST MINUTES FROM LAKE WINDERMERE

Located in the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere and named after the original builder’s elegant steamboat, Swallow is one of six brand new studios set within Pattinson House: a contemporary collection of well-appointed studio apartments. The building has been painstakingly restored to create bright and spacious accommodation with up-to-the-minute interiors throughout. Each apartment was designed with the same shell. Still, the owners of Swallow have poured everything into creating a stylish haven for self-catering accommodation in the heart of this popular Lakeland town.

Bowness sits on the shores of Windermere and, with something for everyone, is undoubtedly one of The Lake District’s most sought-after resorts. Make the most of this prized location by climbing some of the area’s well-renowned fells like Gummer’s How, School Knott and Orrest Head, all within handy reach of the property. After a day of exploring, retreat to Swallow for some pamper time and indulge with Bath House products in the feature roll top tub before enjoying a fine dining experience at Simon Rogan’s Henrock, or, for a more casual, Cumbrian affair, head somewhere like The Black Labrador at Underbarrow, or The Brown Horse at Winster.

We had a great time at this place! The apartment was really cozy and had everything we needed, and more. The location was convenient and easy to get to. We would definitely recommend it to others!

Lovely studio apartment. Photos don't do it justice. Lovely touches like milk in the fridge and prosecco and decorated for Christmas. Very central to bars and restaurants and Lake Windermere . Would definitely stay here again.

The Swallow lodge was amazing. We had a great time. It is only a 5 minute walk from the centre of Bowness which made our stay perfect! We would definitely come again as the apartment was beautiful!

Absolutely stunning place, every detail well thought about. High quality fittings, fixtures, furniture, appliances, and lovely design - particularly the bathroom. Comfy bed, coffee machine, board games, huge sofa. We'd stay here again, no questions.

My boyfriend and I have just come back from our stay at Michelle’s place. Pros: The studio itself is lovely with lots of thoughtful finishing touches and beautifully designed. We loved the big bath tub and the bed and sofa were super comfy. I loved that it was an open plan space and the views were great. The location is great and within walking distance to cafes. Great to have a parking space. Cons: The ventilation system was quite noisy on our first night but the maintenance guy came round promptly in the morning to fix it. Also, we felt the check out time was quite early especially as we left on a Sunday morning and the check in was quite late. If you only stayed one night you would be paying a lot of money for essentially a couple hours. Worth noting that there is not a shower but just a shower head in the bath (you would have to shower sitting down as to not get water everywhere) - we love a bath but might not suit everyone. Overall, would recommend :)

It was the cutest, the cleanest and the more welcoming and comfy air bnb i’ver ever be in. And a lot of very functional devices. I recommend it!

Perfect location for a weekend away for 2! Lovely short walk to the lake with lots of places to eat and drink along the way, we really couldn’t have wished for a better place to stay! No doubt we’ll be back in the future.

We had an amazing stay in swallow- my partner proposed on the trip so will definitely be memorable for us! The apartment was very clean, comfortable and modern. Only downside I would say is the stairs to get to this apartment (although I know this cannot be helped) and the lack of overhead shower.

The flat was perfect, very clean and tidy, great location, We were able to walk to everywhere we wanted to go, Check in was very easy and the flat was easy to find. Michelle and her team are great and let us know when the flat was ready so we could have a earlier check in. Overall the perfect place if you want a base for windermere.

We stayed at Swallow flat 6. Beautiful place, everything was lovely. Very convenient location near town, bus stop and pubs. Had an amazing time and always looked forward to coming home at the end of the day. Communication and service was excellent. Thanks so much, hope to come back soon.

The apartment is in a great location to access Bowness and is walkable to Windermere. The space is comfortable with parking available. The only think I missed on the listing is that there is no shower only a bath. Access to the property was simple and enjoyed an amazing sunset out of the window towards the hills.

Michelle's place was a great home base for exploring this beautiful area of the UK. It was close to the action but also tucked away enough where you could return home to peacefulness and privacy. Definitely hope to return in the future!

Absolutely loved this AirBnB, gorgeous top floor flat, beautifully decorated and situated walking distance to Lake Windermere and Bowness. Me and my partner loved spending our anniversary here and in the surrounding area! The flat was spotless and extremely welcoming and cosy, would definitely visit again!

Lovely modern apartment. Comfy bed and sofa. Great location with a parking spot. Kitchen very well equipped. I would return here but I can see it’s almost charging double what I paid for future dates which is a shame.

Comment:What a delight “Swallow” was! Everything had been thought of from the great coffee machine to a set of Wainwright’s walks books for our reference. And it couldn’t be handier in the Bowness location for exploring and convenient shopping with a lovely Booths supermarket in close proximity. Comfortable bed, luxurious sheets, we really recharged our batteries there and will, most definitely, return!

The location is perfect, a quick walk from Windermere itself and the lovely town of Bowness. The apartment itself is great, clean with a wonderful kitchen and bathroom. Had everthing we needed with even the toiletries being supplied from a local shop. The locals were all extremely friendly and I found the shop keepers all to be extremely welcoming and helpful. We would definitely return and would heartily recommend.

Thank you sooo much!!! We stayed at the Swallow this month (Feb ‘23). I can’t recommend the Swallow enough!!! The Apartment is beautifully and tastefully decorated throughout. As well as the apartment being furnished with all mod con of the highest quality, it’s location is fantastic. The Swallow offers beautiful views over the lake from the lounge window and is within easy walking distance of both Bowness and Windermere. I defy anyone to visit and not want to return! Thank you once again, the Schofield’s.

Wow wow wow this is a truly stunning apartment in Bowness. Appointed to a very very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings everywhere. We loved our three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Fab location allowing you to walk into Bowness in minutes with a great parking space which is a huge bonus in Bowness. Extremely quiet - we heard no noise from anywhere. With the apartment being on the top floor you do get a small view of Lake Windermere in the distance from the lounge window - do note there are 50 steps to climb up to your entrance door - they are lovely wide steps which are covered so if it was wet you would remain dry. Lovely touch with the picnic/cool bag hung in the hallway to use if you take food out - it was great as we spent a day at Fell Foot Paddle Boarding so took food with us and it was all kept fresh and chilled Thank you for the welcome Prosecco another lovely touch. In short - this is a 10 star apartment and one we will definitely return too. Thank you Michelle for allowing us the opportunity to stay.

Wow! How lucky are we to have stayed here. Simply perfect. Beautifully decorated, sumptuous fittings and fixtures and everything top quality. Thank you for the welcome bottle of Prosecco, that was a lovely touch. We know Swallow will soon become fully booked once people sample the delightful place you have lovingly created. Parking is such a great addition and love the lake view towards the west shore of Windermere, close to the ferry crossing. We actually paddle boarded there during our stay and thought we could see Swallow. Thank you again, we will return. P.s, love the picnic cool bag at the door, great idea!
