General Info

Built to impress, Cherry Trees is an imposing Victorian Gentleman’s residence that stands grandly on the hillside overlooking Lake Windermere on the edge of the village of Bowness-On-Windermere. When the architect conceived the design over 120 years ago the key focus was to maximise the views to the lake, which can be seen from virtually every room in the house. The same amazing views can be enjoyed from the sun terrace, patio or the hot tub. As the gates swing open and you approach the property there is a sense of anticipation as the breath-taking views are revealed, when you step through the front door. With all the principal rooms in the house focusing on the magnificent and ever-changing views of Lake Windermere, guests always feel in touch with the awesome scenery that forms the backdrop to the wonderful panoramas and vistas that Cherry Trees affords. All the living accommodation is linked, on the ground floor, by an imposing hallway that runs through the house. On the south west corner, and with large bay window, complete with window seats, overlooking the lake, the comfortable lounge offers sumptuous sofas and armchairs arranged around the cosy log burning stove and TV. Patio doors lead from the lounge and the adjacent conservatory onto the large terrace that runs across the front of the house. In the centre the formal dining room is presented with a large family dining table, ideal for special dinner relaxing and socialising with friends. When guests want a little space to unwind, they can escape to the cosy snug room with its comfortable leather sofa and enjoying dual aspect views of Lake Windermere. Keep up to date with all the news or relax in front of a good film in the TV room with large screen TV and games console. To the rear of the house the beautifully presented kitchen has a large central island unit, granite work tops, a traditional aga, electric hob and additional electric oven, dishwasher and fridge/freezer and also benefits from the adjoining breakfast room where families will gather in a morning to plan their adventures for the day. A utility room is equipped with a washer dryer and there is also a cloakroom WC on the ground floor An imposing staircase rises to the first floor landing where there are five wonderful bedrooms to choose from all with lake views, together with robes and toiletries. The dual aspect master bedroom has a king-size bed and Juliette balcony and window seat overlooking the lake, en-suite shower room with walk in shower, basin and WC. At the other end of the landing a spacious triple aspect bedroom enjoys wonderful views and is has either super king or twin, along with a luxurious en-suite shower room with walk in shower. There are a further three bedrooms; a king size room, a twin room and the final room can be presented with a choice of super king or twin beds. These bedrooms are complemented by a superb family bathroom with a relaxing feature bath with views that are second to none, a walk-in shower, basin and WC. (Where there is a choice of super king or twin beds please specify when booking) Outside is a large, terraced balcony wrapping around the house made to relax and enjoy the views from the hot tub and sun deck. Alternatively, the secluded raised patio with outdoor garden furniture is ideal for an alfresco lunch. A landscaped lawned garden runs to the side of the house with a pretty summer house. On the lower terrace it’s game, set and match on the tennis court (racquets are available for guests to use). Only 2 miles from Bowness to the east of Lake Windermere, this Lake District country house is perfectly located - 2 miles from shops and restaurants in Bowness, and the same distance from the glorious lake shores and boating attractions of Lake Windermere.
