The self catering accommodation sleeps up to six in three comfortable bedrooms, two doubles and one twin, and it's tranquil setting makes it perfect for small groups and families alike. Ellen Brow is the perfect holiday base for visiting the many attractions of Bowness, with Lakeside walks, water sports, the Beatrix Potter Exhibition, museums and art galleries all nearby. The steamer cruises on Lake Windermere are very popular with two destinations, Lakeside to the south (Aquarium of the Lakes and Lakeside to Haverthwaite steam railway ) and Ambleside to the north. Within a short drive are many National Trust properties and historic buildings too. The beauty and grandeur of the Lakeland Fells surrounding Lake Windermere, entices visitors to explore the many walks, cycle paths and mountain climbs, whilst other lakes such as Coniston Water, Ullswater and Derwent Water are within easy reach for wonderful days out. No matter how you like to spend your time there is something for everyone and a splendid opportunity to create memories that will last forever.More

Not only a great view but a great bungalow. There’s everything you need and the quality is good also. Just what you’d put in your own home! Very comfortable.
