The Lookout Lodge, Bowness on Windermere, Lake District, Cumbria - Central village location with off street parking for three car
About Andrew Guest
I live near Manchester with my wife and two children. I have been a regular visitor to the Lake District since I was a small child. I remember happy family holidays exploring the Langdale fells in particular. I love the outdoors and take part in cycling, sailing, canoeing, rock climbing and walking. What better place could there be than the Lakes?
Andrew Guest purchased this House in 2012
Why Andrew Guest chose Bowness-on-Windermere
In 2004 I was lucky enough to purchase a small cottage here. With the arrival of a family we outgrew that and bought the Lookout Lodge in 2012. We use the house ourselves quite a lot and so keep the place as we like it. We have undertaken extensive improvements for 2014 adding a fourth bedroom, a roof top terrace, a new kitchen and a new shower room. When we are not using the house we let it out. If you decide to stay then please bear in mind that it is our second home and respect it accordingly. We hope you like it as much as we do!

This property is light and airy and has a homely feel. The views are fantastic and the rooftop terrace would have been great weather permitting.The kitchen is modern and well equipped. Bowness is on your doorstep a couple of minutes walk away, and in the other direction fantastic walks, great for the dogs and us.
The Lookout Lodge
Excellent location. House was ideal with spacious rooms and a great view. Very well equipped. We hope to stay there again
Well situated, clean and comfortable
This is a really lovely place to stay in Bowness-on-Windermere. The house has great views out to Lake Windermere. Access to the centre of Bowness is only a few minutes walk, where there are plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and eating places. It's also only a few minutes walk to Windermere boats for trips on the lake. The house is very well equipped, and is very much like a home from home. Although we stayed in January, many of the places that are open in the Summer are also open at this time of year. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would certainly stay here again.
Lovely property in an ideal location
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at Lookout Lodge, lovely property in an ideal location. Bowness has so much to offer.
Fabulous long weekend at the Lookout Lodge
A lovely,comfy home from home. The views were wonderful as was the location. The best accomodation we've stayed in, in the Lakes. Would recommend to anyone thinking of going to Bowness. We will definitely be booking again. Fabulous.
