Langdale View occupies a superb location set in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere comprising five individual apartments with four of which offering guests a comfortable independent holiday experience and the fifth apartment in the basement level providing a present long-term rental income. This large stone built semi-detached Lakeland house has a generous private parking area which is rarely available in the centre of Bowness and the apartments enjoy views over the roof tops of Bowness to the fells beyond with Lake views from the top apartment.
Built originally with stone walls and local slate roof around the turn of the 19th Century, this highly deceptive residence has accommodation over four floors as well as lots of immense charm and character. The property has subsequently been updated and maintained during the present owners ownership and is an ideal investment opportunity for someone looking to buy a successful and popular holiday let business. A further advantage is that the property is being sold as a going concern with forward bookings with plenty of scope to grow further or equally convert to a HMO or staff accommodation for a local business. All holiday letting apartments are well presented and fully equipped with bathrooms or shower rooms, living areas with televisions and dining tables and full cooking facilities, all of which enjoy views of the surrounding fells.
Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the best known villages in the Lake District National Park, which attracts many thousands of visitors over an ever increasing season with its wide range of shops, eateries, bars and attractions. Langdale View is only a few minutes’ walk from picturesque Bowness Bay and is ideally suited to provide accommodation for visitors travelling by both car and rail. For the seasoned walker the central fells, beloved by Alfred Wainwright provide an excellent variety of challenges. The many lower paths and lakeside walks offer a less energetic alternative to the fell tops while the many local attractions and country houses all add to the visitor experience.
Directions From the centre of Bowness at the mini roundabout head up Crag Brow hill in the direction of Windermere and at the head of the hill take a right hand turn into Helm Road. Continue up the hill passing Oakbank House and take a left turn into a narrow lane signposted ‘Craig Walk’. Continue along the lane and Langdale View is the last property on the left hand side with a car parking area.
