A charming apartment in a traditional Lakeland house. Ideal for walking, cycling, climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking. Wide choice of shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants in nearby Windermere & Bowness. Main tourist attractions within easy reach.

The space
Willow is a located in tranquil woodland with views towards the mountains and fells. The apartment is part of an extension to Pinethwaite Lodge. The original part of Pinethwaite Lodge dates from the late 19th Century.

Willow has a bedroom with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The kitchen, dining and living area are all in one room with sink, electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, dining table and chairs, settee and TV. The bathroom has underfloor electric heating, a shower, toilet and wash hand basin.

A cot for a baby can be provided on request but please bring bedding for the cot (my children are in their mid 20s now!) Willow and our grounds are not 'child friendly', however. I do not provide child proof plug socket covers or cupboard locks. In addition there are a number of external hazards including a pond, stream and stone steps close to the apartment. Your child/children will need to be supervised at all times. I charge a one off payment of £5.00 for the use of the cot.

I can provide a camp bed which fits in the kitchen/dining/living room area if the sofa is moved! It is a bit of a squeeze! If you wish to use the camp bed as well please bring a sleeping bag. I charge a one off hire fee of £5.00 for the use of the camp bed.

There is a small courtyard by the entrance with table and chairs.

Bicycles can be stored in an undercover storage area next to Willow in our shed.

Guest access
There are 10 acres of private woodland - the home of roe deer and a wide variety of bird life. Guests are welcome to walk in the grounds to left of the drive.

Other things to note
There is parking space within the grounds of Pinethwaite Lodge, next to the small pond, close to the apartment.

Depending on your provider, mobile phone network is variable.

Answers to FAQs:
1. The bathroom has a shower (no bath!)

2. Having a car is advisable if wanting to tour the Lake District as public transport service is not always convenient.

3. The nearest parkrun is at Fell Foot (Newby Bridge). I run every Saturday. Happy to provide lift. Leave at 8am.

4. Free Wi-Fi - security code in apartment information folder on arrival.

5. Mobile phone network very poor.

6. Iron, ironing board and hair dryer provided.

7. Please be aware if you are planning to bring an infant there are a number of hazards including a pond, stream and stone steps close to the apartment. Also, I do not provide child proof plug socket covers or cupboard locks.

8. Bicycles can be stored in our garage.

9. There is a launderette in Windermere, about a mile away (1.5km) open Monday 08.30 - 17.00, Tuesday & Wednesday 08.30 - 17.30, Thursday 08.30 - 17.00, Friday 08.30 - 17.30 and Saturday 09.00 - 17.00. The address is 19 Main Road, Windermere, LA23 1DX.

10. The apartment is self-catering so make sure you have sufficient provisions for your next meal! I do provide small quantities of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cooking oil, salt & pepper. 'Sainsbury's Local' supermarket in Windermere is open daily 7am - 11pm and is only a mile away (1.5km).

Location

Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

The Lake District is a year round destination and Pinethwaite Lodge is located near Windermere in the heart of the National Park.

Outdoor opportunities are endless: walking, cycling climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking - all within easy reach and Windermere Golf Club is just up the lane.
The main tourist attractions of the southern Lake District are all on the doorstep – Windermere with cruise boats, Beatrix Potter attractions, a cinema in Bowness – and a little further away are the Aquarium of the Lakes, Car Museum, Sizergh Castle and Brockhole Visitor Centre.

Bowness and Windermere are within a couple of miles, with a wide choice of shops, tea rooms, cafes and restaurants and modern and traditional pubs.
The popular centre of Windermere is surrounded by very accessible vantage points that give glorious views of the surrounding area and lake. Orrest Head, a 784’ hill north of the town, provides one of the finest panoramas – as does School Knott – immediately behind Pinethwaite. Another easy climb is Biskey Howe, a 300’ hill east of Bowness, which has quaint narrow streets and a 15th century church. Windermere, the lake, has fourteen islands, including privately owned Belle Isle with its 18th century round house.
Further afield, the list of stately homes, steam railways, lakes and tarns, homes of authors and poets, and fine eating places, is almost endless, all set in the deep valleys and foothills of the Lakeland fells, where some of Britain’s best scrambling and mountain walking may be found. Even in today’s busy world, it is possible still to leave cars and people behind and find solitude in many parts of the Lake District.

In addition, Pinethwaite is a haven for wildlife: foxes, badgers, roe deer, and a wide range of birds, from buzzards, to long-tailed tits, warblers, fly catchers, heron, tawny owls and many more.

My sons introduced me to Airbnb four years ago having travelled UK, Europe and beyond using Airbnb as guests. I think it is a great, easy and accessible system giving travellers a wide choice of accommodation and experiences. My aim is to provide an affordable, comfortable, base for walkers, climbers, cyclists, swimmers and holiday makers. I love meeting people from all walks of life and from all over the world. All three of my self-catering listings (Rowan, Ivy and Willow) are perfectly situated in a quiet, peaceful country location but not too far from the hustle and bustle of Windermere and Bowness. Each compact apartment is part of our house, but has its own front door and is self-contained. Guests can come and go as they please. My husband, Paul, and I live in the main house and so we are available should you need assistance during your stay. I look forward to welcoming you. Just a bit about me. I work part-time as a peripatetic music woodwind teacher, play in the Westmorland Symphony Orchestra and love entertaining numerous visiting friends, family and relatives as well as managing 3 Airbnb properties. My interests include classical music, history, (particularly 19th and 20th centuries) geography, the natural environment, wildlife (I feed the birds every morning!), politics and international affairs. Favourite music - mainly classical but also 70's popular and Coldplay. Favourite films - Harry Potter, King's Speech, historical documentaries such as Dunkirk. I love going to the theatre - plays, musicals, comedies, Shakespeare, orchestral and choral concerts and eating out. I enjoy running, particularly around the local area and participating in the weekly parkrun at Fell Foot as a runner and volunteer.
