About Amanda Glendinning

I live in the beautiful english lake district with my partner Amanda we have five children between us although all but one is adult now. We both work Amanda in the local village where we live..Bowness on Windermere.. and I Mark on the Fylde coast near Blackpool.

We enjoy spending our spare time and quite often our holidays in the Lakes as we like to walk, sail and cycle.

We chose The Lake House because of its perfect location being 2 minutes from the village centre and right on the lake even after several years here the view still takes your breath away either from the lounge, kitchen windows or when standing on the foreshore. You will meet either Amanda or I when you stay as we like to greet all our guests personally & should you need any guidance just ask!

Amanda Glendinning purchased this house in 2004

Why Amanda Glendinning chose Bowness-on-Windermere

I first came to the lakes with my parents then my young family. Although my family have now gone their own direction they, like myself enjoy to spend time in the lakes at any opportunity. There is always something to suit every generation. Bowness is vibrant 'sensibly' lively, cosmopolitan, suits all generations with is Bars, Boutiques Restaurants, Boats, Lake, Beatrix Potter, Golf Course( 5 mins by car) it was always the place I would choose to live. It had to be on the Lake so when the opportunity to buy the Lake House came up it had to be. Initially for the views but within such a short space of time its beauty is the way it puts a perspective on everything and you really do stop relax and value all the good things. I hope you feel the same... I could never find anything more perfect.

What makes this house unique

Just out of Bowness along Lake rd you arrive at a large pair of electric gates... your entrance to Lake house with its secure and private grounds. You will be able to then take in the tranquility of lake Windermere its stillness the calmness is instantly relaxing... to wake and take in any one of its many moods and as the day unfolds it comes alive... becomes busy.

You may then wish to go for a stroll...

Lake Windermere bottom of the garden 70yrds, Windermere car and foot ferry 15mins where you can cross the Lake to Hill Top (Beatrix Potters home).

Stay this side and you have Bowness 20 mins with its many Boutiques, Cafes, Bars, Restaurants.

If by Car Golf Course 4mins, Bowness 2mins, Windermere 5mins, Market town of Kendal 10mins, Ambleside 15mins, Cartmel Racecourse 25mins.

Beautiful location

Spacious, with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, bright, spacious and comfortable, with a gorgeous view. Just the thing for a relaxing break away from our busy lives. We found it a perfect location too - quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of Bowness, but near enough to it to take advantage of the shops, bars and restaurants when we wanted.

Beautiful property

Thank you Mark and Angela for the beautiful property we rented over our week in the Lakes District. It is well kept and the finishing touches are lovely. The view from the jetty over the lake are wonderful, we had very good weather for the most part and I got some gorgeous early morning shots of the lake.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Totally agree with the previous review. This place is amazing. We booked the Lakehouse for the most fabulous week I can remember. The house is just so beautifully appointed and spacious with incredible views from the lounge and kitchen. Access to all local attractions is immediate and the area is quite simply incredible. I have no hesitation in recommending this property and giving a 5 star rating.
