Location, Location, Location
There is something special about Willow. It may be the perfect balance between a countryside retreat and a luxurious modern apartment. The tranquil atmosphere will have you relaxing from the moment you step through the door.

Nestled in the quiet foothills of The Lake District, with the incredible backdrop of Potter Fell and The Kentmere Valley, could this be the perfect base for your Lake District adventure?

The apartment is located at the end of a private drive that snakes along the edge of the River Kent and the famous Dales Way. The recently renovated former farmhouse breathes a cosy charm whilst providing all the mod-cons of a luxury hotel. With two convenient parking spaces right outside, simply pull up and make your way up the external staircase to your little slice of heaven.

Relax, Eat, Retreat
Retreat into the open-plan, light and airy living area. This space is beautifully furnished with stylish interiors, exposed beams and is fitted with good WIFI and a smart TV so you’ll never resent a rainy day. The newly installed kitchen and breakfast peninsula offers the perfect environment for casual dining and entertaining. Complete with a brand-new Lavazza coffee machine, chilled and filtered water, and ice, plus an instant boiling Quooker tap. Let the culinary juices flow whilst enjoying the beautiful rolling hills from every window.

Sweet Slumber
To the left of the entrance, you’ll find a carpeted lobby leading directly to the first bedroom and en-suite shower room. Complete with a sumptuous super king, four poster bed and smart TV. Wake up to the sound of birds singing in the garden below.
The second bedroom lies on the other side of the apartment, unique with its super king (or two single) bed and deep-set windows, soak up the uninterrupted views of the Cumbrian countryside. The spacious en-suite is finished to an exemplary standard with a double width walk-in shower and egg-shaped luxury bath.

Fresh Air
Outside, the garden extends out to meet the fields. Terraced areas and different levels provide the perfect vantage point to soak up starlit skies or relax on the lawned area. Why not take dinner alfresco and really make the most of the long Lake District days?

A perfect space to unwind after a day on the fells, this cosy little bolt hole could provide a romantic get-away or a well-earned mini-break on a long-distance excursion. Willow encompasses tranquil escapism whilst retaining the perks and luxuries of a modern apartment. Teaming with wildlife and walking routes, the pull of the outdoors is strong at Cowan Head.

Out & About
Just a half hour stroll away, you’ll find the bustling village of Staveley, well equipped with local amenities including More? Bakery, Hawkshead Brewery, Wilf’s café, Wheelbase, for the cyclists and Kimi’s Gelato. Windermere and Kendal are both ten minutes’ drive from the property, with amble opportunity for shopping and numerous activities.
Willow is the ideal property for anyone seeking a rural, but not remote, holiday destination situated at the gateway to the Lake District.
