The Stables

The Stables are three cosy holiday apartments in Bowness on Windermere. They are each designed for couples wanting to explore the Lake District and are perfectly placed for a holiday in Bowness on Windermere to make the very most of your time together in the Lakes. The Stables are set in quiet surroundings, yet less than a minutes’ walk from all that bustling Bowness on Windermere has to offer. All three contemporary holiday apartments have been created within a former 19th Century stable building and retain many quirky features. They are all presented in a modern design, with chandeliers, dramatic high pitched ceilings and wine glasses at the ready, their self-catering facilities will make you feel at home in no time. Lake Windermere with her steamers, ducks, swans and rowing boats is a short stroll away. Excellent international restaurants and individual boutique shops are on your doorstep too. Head up the hill for stunning views of the lake or visit the retro cinema, just around the corner from the cottages. During your holiday evenings, you can cook and stay in for a cosy night or go out as everything is on your doorstep, the choice is yours. That is the real benefit of a self catering holiday in the lake district and there really is no better place for a romantic break. The Stable Nest is downstairs and has a cosy studio layout with everything you need for a self catering holiday, just in a smaller space. The Round Window is upstairs via a spiral staircase and has a separate bedroom, with the kitchen and living room arranged around the quirky round window. The Stable Loft is also upstairs via the spiral staircase and has a separate kitchen, with the bedroom and living area arranged around a curved wall. All apartments have baths with overhead showers, full kitchen facilities, free electricity and Wifi.

Claire & I fell in love with the Lake District so much that we got married here in 2008. A year later, while we were celebrating our first wedding anniversary, we fell in love with the idea of running a small business in our favourite spot, Bowness on Windermere. We love travelling and staying in quirky places and wanted to run an independent holiday let that would be perfect for couples just like us. We luckily stumbled on The Round Window that was for sale and in such a perfect spot for enjoying everything that Bowness on Windermere has to offer with shops, bars and restaurants all just minutes away. Later on, The Stable Nest and The Stable Loft came up for sale in the same building and our small business grew. We love the fact our cosy apartments welcome visitors from around the world and we love to hear the stories about what our guests like about visiting the lake district. We are so proud that visits to us have inspired numerous couples to pop the question then come to visit us time and time again for anniversaries and special dates. We pride ourselves on being affordable, clean, perfectly located & leaving you alone to enjoy your special holiday time undisturbed. Marc
