Welcome to a home poised on the cusp of all the excitement of Bowness and Windermere, where you can dip into the delights of town-life at your discretion, before returning home to peace and seclusion.

Park outside, with additional parking found in the communal area, serving all members of the development of cottages, to the rear.

Whitewashed and inviting, step up past the ribbon of green lawn and flowering fuchsias (part of the maintained gardens) and enter through the glazed front door. Light flows in through the double-glazed front door and up the staircase ahead. This motif of brightness continues in the open plan living-dining-kitchen to the right.

Plenty of space for sideboards and coffee tables in this front lounge, while to the rear, a dining table is set before a floor-to-ceiling, semi-bay window, providing elevated views out to the surrounding woodland. A perfectly peaceful backdrop to any meal.

Light-wood units and drawers and a built-in wine rack sit beneath the worktops, with further storage space available in the wall-mounted cupboards above. Fitted with a built-in fridge, recessed freezer and brand-new John Lewis dishwasher with a free-standing electric oven and hob, this kitchen is fitted with all the essentials for carefree and easy cooking.

Turning right out of the kitchen, take the carpeted stairs down to the lower ground floor, formerly a garage and now converted to use as a versatile room. Formerly a games room, and currently a multi-purpose room it provides storage and also accommodation, furnished with a sofa-bed.

Ideal guest accommodation, there is private access to this level via a back door leading out to the communal parking area. With its own private entrance and also WC and shower room, this bonus room holds vast potential - particularly for the purposes of holiday letting.

Returning to the entrance hall on the ground floor, take the pale green carpeted staircase up to the first floor, where three further bedrooms await. Directly ahead, a brightly-lit bathroom contains a WC, wash basin and bath with overhead electric shower, fully tiled to the walls.

Wooden doors add authenticity to the country cottage feel, stepping through the next door to the right of the bathroom, opening up to reveal bedroom two. Well insulated and so warm, this large double bedroom has space for a dressing table, with fitted wardrobes providing additional hanging space for clothes. Leafy views of the woodland boughs are framed through the rear window.

Bright and welcoming, the master bedroom lies next door. Overlooking the front of the cottage, with an alpine-style wood-cladded ceiling, storage space is found in the built-in cupboard.

Surprisingly spacious for a cottage, three bedrooms on the top floor could sleep up to six (with bunk beds in the front bedroom), with the potential to make the numbers up to eight if the lower-ground room was fully converted to a bedroom. It is the versatility, peaceful location and proximity to Lake Windermere and Bowness that combine to make Meadowcroft an enticing family home or holiday let alike!

Grounds and history
Decorated with neatly trimmed lawns and well managed borders, an annual maintenance fee of a modest £600 ensures their maintenance as well as the upkeep of the private lane, sewerage pumping station (serving the collection of cottages), and repainting of the properties' exteriors every three years.

For those looking to let Meadowcroft from afar, this attention to detail is an added reassurance.

Built in the 1970s by a local builder, Meadowcroft was built on the plot of an old school house playground.

At nighttime, enjoy the starlit sky with no artificial streetlighting to ruin the view. With no passing traffic, soak up the constellations in perfect peace.

Of the twenty or so cottages within the development, roughly half are used as holiday homes or for holiday let purposes, meaning that particularly in winter time, the feeling of seclusion is better than ever.
