This ground floor apartment is situated in Bowness and sleeps four people.

Biskey View is a delightful single-storey apartment situated in the popular town of Bowness-on-Windermere in the Lake District National Park. This cottage sleeps four people in two bedrooms, consisting of one king-size double with en-suite and one twin bedroom with a basin, as well as a bathroom. The apartment also has a kitchen, sitting room with dining area and gas fire and a conservatory.

Outside there's off road parking for two cars and a fenced patio with furniture. Biskey View is a convenient base for exploring all that the Lake District National Park has to offer.


A wonderful place to stay
Biskey View was absolutely perfect for our requirements. The front of the property may not be inspiring but look beyond this - the views from the kitchen and conservatory are spectacular, the rooms are light and airy and the facilities are excellent. Bowness on Windermere is conveniently located for exploring the Lake District and the property has both a twin and double room, both with en-suite / private facilities and all on one level. My mother has limited mobility and although she could manage the outside steps (9) with care it was important that she could move around easily once inside. The property is in a beautifully quiet location with no passing traffic and exceeded our expectations in every way. It was very clean with super-comfy beds and wonderful hot showers, and the views towards the lake are stunning. All the cooking pots and utensils we needed were provided and many others besides - nothing seems to have been forgotten. And considerate touches - clean dish cloths, bin bags and dishwasher tablets were left out for us should we have needed them. Books, maps, a torch - all were there. We had a wonderful holiday and Biskey View was a comfortable and relaxing place to return to at the end of a busy day. We have already recommended this property to other people and should we ever come back to the Lake district ourselves we would certainly hope to stay here.

A wonderful place to stay, with incredible views. Thank you for letting us stay.

The quality of the accommodation was first class and the view from the apartment is impressive. Bowness is an ideal base with so much to see and do.
Mr Nolan

The conservatory at Biskey View gives excellent views and we used it everyday, particularly when the weather was bad. It was lovely to just relax and take in the views. The cottage is excellently set out and equipped with everything you could want

Autumn family break
Beautifully clean apartment, everything catered for, spacious and tastefully decorated. Conservatory with views overlooking Lake Windermere. A short walk from the centre of Bowness, although uphill, ok for us but our elderly dog struggled. A very enjoyable stay and lucky enough to have a warm sunny week, brilliant for mid - October.
