This luxury cottage has been furnished with care and attention to detail and by using the skills of local craftsmen, boasts charm and authentic individuality which is certain to appeal. Gowan Bank Farm Cottage is situated on a working farm set in 400 acres of picture perfect countryside. Nestled just outside the Lake District National Park hot spots of Windermere and Bowness, in the popular village of Ings. The farm itself dates back over 400 years and is still a working farm today. The outstanding setting allows for walkers of all abilities to find routes from the doorstep. A much enjoyed route in fair weather is the ½-mile stroll over the field track to the popular Watermill Inn and Brewery at Ings which brews its own beer. The village of Staveley is close by. This is also a popular area for cyclists with plentiful routes, as challenging as required and always offer outstanding scenery. Guests wanting to enjoy the mix of facilities available in Windermere and Bowness will not be disappointed. Independent retailers, pavement cafés and wine bars sit close by stunning Lake Windermere. Steamer rides along the lake offer a relaxing way in which to take in the views of this picturesque area.
Gowan Bank Farm Cottage is a delightful conversion of a former stable with slate floors, Herdwick wool carpeting, beams and internal stone walls all add to the attraction. The open plan living room offers a cosy wood burner, perfect for a romantic evening in. Fabulous uninterrupted views over the surrounding fells are particularly special from the bedroom windows. The modern en-suite bathroom offers a fabulous freestanding bath and high quality fixtures and fittings. There are beautiful views over the farm land and wood and out of the bedroom windows to the Langdales and Coniston Old Man. Beach 17 miles. Shop pub and restaurant ½ mile.
Gowan Bank Cottage can be booked together with Stone Barn Cottage (UK 1263) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

    An ideal placing to enjoy the Lakes and enjoy accommodation just off the beaten track. To a cake lover Amanda’s sponge offering made us feel at home straight away. Amanda also gave some delicious eggs from the farm .Our dwelling for the week was ideal with good furnishings and after a day of exploration the heated floor welcomed us home. Amanda and George were excellent hosts and we particularly enjoyed the educational chats about the farming life and where to visit. We highly recommend a visit to the Lake District but if you want “icing on the cake “ we suggest a stay at Gowan Bank Farm.

    A very warm welcome and great help during our stay from Amanda and George. The cottage has great views and there is an abundance of wildlife on the farm. We had such a relaxing time. It was so appreciated as we had not had a holiday for almost 3 years because of illness.

    Gowan bank provided a perfect week away. Settled on a working farm added to the experience and the lambs were a pleasant site every day. The owners were very accommodating and the location was perfect for exploration and going to other areas.

    A lovely cottage on a working farm with great views. Very peaceful setting but within easy reach of facilities. Although our stay was cut short as a result our family circumstances, we really liked the cottage and will definitely come back. The owners are extremely helpful and looked after us with great care.

    Had a lovely weekend at Gowan bank farm cottage . The cottage itself was modern and clean and the bed was very comfortable..It's in a perfect location to visit South lakes and although off the main road it feels very rural as its up a track. The hosts were very welcoming and the local pub did lovely food..would highly recommend.
