DESCRIPTION
The present owners acquired 1 Park Road in 2007 and during their ownership they have steadily made on going improvements to the guest bedrooms making it one of the market leaders in the area as a boutique bed and breakfast and is a year on year profitable business. They have also developed the business and marketing approach by commissioning a new website and worked in partnership with local restaurants, actively supported Cumbria Tourism's See More Drive Less due to the increasing number of guests who come from London and the larger cities by train, and offered activity holidays such as such as photography and painting courses in the quieter season. All have had impact on the business with increased turnover, a significant increase in return visits and an excellent improved all year round trade. Having enjoyed their years at 1 Park Road, the owners are now to retire to live closer to family.

Situated just 5 minutes walk from the delightful village of Windermere lying in the heart of the Lake District National Park and too many is the essence of Cumbria. It has access to three supermarkets, two butchers and many quality restaurants. The local railway station gives quick access to Kendal, Manchester and places further afield such as London, Glasgow and other major cities. The village owes much to the coming of the Kendal to Windermere Railway in 1847 which precipitated much of the lovely Victorian architecture which was built for the rapid increase in tourist visitors brought by the railway. Surrounded by watchful fells, Lake Windermere, England's longest lake is only a 15 minute stroll away at Bowness, home to The Beatrix Potter Museum and where the lake steamers plough the length of the lake giving visitors an outstanding view of this glorious landscape. To the north lie the honeypot villages of Ambleside and onto Grasmere, much loved by Lakeland poet William Wordsworth with its famous gingerbread shop and annual sports. All this and so much more bring thousands of tourists each year to this glorious corner of England.
