Situated in a quiet backwater with lovely gardens, yet very close to the centre of Windermere village, this small community is ideally positioned for those wanting a quiet home with everyday amenities within walking distance, including:
- Community Centre and Library
- Shops and Cafes
- Railway Station
- Doctors Surgery
- Dental Practices
- Private Parking Spaces
There is also a fantastic bus service linking all areas of the Lake District and further afield, such as Kendal and Lancaster. The train service also runs from Windermere to the west coast mainline at Oxenholme.
Our gardens are just stunning – we have large grounds and always try to have some colour coming through. We have a greenhouse and small vegetable patch that residents can use to grow their own fruit and vegetables!
