Lake frontage, your own jetty and mooring, a summerhouse by the water, and an elegant period property with unmatchable views!
Garden Hill West is a substantial portion of a simply magnificent lakeside residence on the shores of Windermere. It makes a Lakeland holiday really about what it should be- the lake! A truly enchanting place to spend special time.
A little to the south of Bowness, Garden Hill West occupies a genuinely stunning location in a sought-after stretch of the eastern bank of Lake Windermere. The iconic period property overlooks the water, and its magnificent gardens sweep right down to the shoreline.
You have your own mooring for a boat, and 50 feet of highly coveted Lake Windermere frontage. What could be better than cruising England's most celebrated lake in your own craft and returning for a picnic and chilled wine on the lakeside right by your residence?
Alternatively, why not enjoy a hot drink while draped on the supremely comfortable sofas in front of the warming open fire in the sitting room? The bespoke kitchen is simply fabulous, with traditional oak beams, stylish centre unit, and a country kitchen table for breakfasting, while the drawing-room offers you a formal dining area with unparalleled views, perfect for those special meals and evenings spent with fine wine and a dreamy sunset over the lake.
The whole of the Lake District is on your doorstep, and bustling Bowness is a stone's throw away with attractions such as the Beatrix Potter Gallery and the Lake Windermere Steamers, while the walker's mecca of Ambleside is a little to the north.
Garden Hill West is a wonderfully luxurious choice for a party of eight, and offers everything you could want in a Lakeland holiday home.
