This upside down house in Bowness-on-Windermere sleeps seven people in four bedrooms.

Sandown is a spacious, pet-friendly upside down house on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, ten minutes' walk from shops, pubs, restaurants and the shores of Lake Windermere. The property has four ground floor bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms; three doubles and a single. Upstairs is a fitted kitchen and a dining room with an archway to an attractive sitting room.

Outside is off road parking for four cars and a patio. Sandown makes a very convenient base for enjoying the amenities around this part of the Lake, or for exploring Ambleside or further afield to the lakes, waters and tarns of the beautiful National Park.


Everything a getaway should be
This beautiful home from home situated in the heart of Bowness and a stone throw from Windemere is the perfect base for all adventures in the lakes. We first stayed here in August 2013 and have been back every year without fail. Georgie and Mark who run Sandown are amazingly welcoming natural hosts and very soon felt like old friends. Being locals you won't be sort of advice on beautiful walks for all levels of experience and things to see all the family can enjoy. Be it an enchanting romantic getaway or a fun family adventure, you'll find everything and more at the Sandown to write some amazing lake district memories. Jonny

Lots of space and lots of extra touches. The glasses, crockery and kitchen equipment are the best I have ever seen in a holiday let. The beds are very comfortable and the bedding lovely and fresh, and lots of coat hangers!
Ms Goodman

Sandown was perfect for an adult family like ours, with our own en suite bathrooms and the large, shared living accommodation. The location is perfect for walking down to Bowness or up to Windermere. A very nice place to stay.
Mrs McHattie

The size and comfort of the house was perfect for six adults and one small child. I could not find any faults or negatives about the property. Will return.
Mr Cook

An ideal location for access to Bowness and to use as a base for touring the Lake District. The accommodation was comfortable and relaxing and we will be returning in the future. We have highly recommended this accommodation to friends and family.
