Why Georgeene Eastwood-Taylor chose Bowness-on-Windermere
Windermere is the ideal base for The Lake District as it has excellent restaurants, specialist & boutique shops, tea shops, wine bars & old traditional English pubs. From The Pier you can enjoy a trip around Lake Windermere hopping on and off at the traditional villages or ride the Lakeside steam train. There are lots for the kids to do like fun farms, Go Ape, a zoo, the aquarium etc. Alternatively from our front door you are already only minutes away from breath-taking views and many beautiful scenic walks, hikes and bike rides. But if you fancy a change from all that you can go climbing, sailing, golfing, fishing, horse riding, off roading, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking or visit the many historic houses, safari parks, award winning gardens, the list goes on with something for all.
What makes this House unique
The house is in the perfect location in a quiet yet central position within the Windermere area only a 5 minute gentle stroll to Lake Windermere and a few minutes’ walk down to the village of Bowness (on the Lake) or 20 minutes walk up the hill to Windermere village. All our guests rooms are located on the ground floor as as make the most of the mountains views from upstairs. Unlike many cottages in the area with a central location we still have private and secure parking for approx. 4 cars within our grounds. And all our bedrooms have their own shower en suite so no queuing for the bathroom or the loo at any time! Plus all bedrooms have their own TV. We offer free Wi-Fi, we are dog friendly and we have a small outside seating area to enjoy if you want to have a BBQ etc.

A long weekend in Bowness!
Sandown was very clean, well kitted out and felt welcoming. It is well located for strolling into town or driving off to walk or "sight see" with a lot of choice nearby. It was a perfect location for a long weekend. The owners provided friendly advice and allowed us to park early when we arrived and leave our cars after we had checked out while we had a last walk into Bowness. Obviously this would depend on other occupancy, but was much appreciated in our case. We hope to come again!
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are really glad you had a good weekend and the weather was so nice for you all to get out and about. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Best wishes Georgie
Comfortable and convenient home from home’
This was our second stay at Sandown over the Christmas week. It was just as lovely as we had remembered and we found the addition of an upstairs utility area and toilet very useful. The property is well equipped and comfortable and is perfectly situated for a stroll into Bowness and for local walks with breathtaking views over Windermere. The addition of a Christmas Tree and a Christmas card and treats from the owners were a lovely touch and gave the property a really festive feel when we arrived. We managed to cook a Christmas dinner for 7 in the kitchen with no problems. Thanks for another fantastic week.
Thank you again for staying with us and I am so happy you had a festive Christmas at the house. Thanks also for taking the time to leave your review it s appreciated as always helpful for future guests to hear from those who have stayed.
We hope you welcome you back again sometime in the future.
Couldn't Have Been Better
The property was as shown, the owner very friendly and helpful (especially the welcome gift of wine & milk!!). We were four friends relaxing after a River Boat tour in France and the contrast between the two countries was delightful. The bus stop right at the front door provided our gateway to exploring the area and Beresford Restaurant right across the street was excellent food at most reasonable prices. Thank you, Georgie for sharing with us. Bette, April, Gwen & Otis.
It was a sheer pleasure welcoming you and the gang! From initial enquiry to your actual stay you were so lovely and I loved hearing about how you all met and the adventures you’ve had; I’m so happy we could be a part of that and we wish you many many more adventures in the future. Thank you for your kind review and we hope you may come back to The Lakes again in a few years, we be delighted to welcome you back. Big hugs Georgie
A spacious house in a fantastic position!
We were a party of 6 with 2 teens and the house gave everyone their own space to relax when needed, as well as their own bathrooms. Upstairs the dining room and lounge had loads of seats so we could all hang out together. Within a moments walk we had the shops, restaurants, pubs and bars meaning we didn’t need to move he cars once we’d returned from a long day of walking. Really fantastic, we had such a comfortable stay and will be back in 2019!
We are so glad you found the house comfortable for you all and you had a busy week enjoying all the activities there are to do out and about. We look forward to you returning next year. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review it is so useful for future guests to have your thoughts on your visit and we really appreciate it. Kindest regards Georgie
