Welcome to Annie's View, exclusively for couples and sole travellers.

This delightful apartment offers superb accommodation for guests to kick back and relax after exploring the Lakes. Superbly placed in a peaceful and elevated position above the village to take in the magnificent view of the Fells and glimpses of Lake Windermere.

In addition, this bijou apartment is at the start of the Dales Way walk and with direct access to many other public footpaths, plus a mere minutes stroll to the bars, restaurants and cafes in the picturesque village of Bowness on Windermere. Add in the variety of tourist attractions such as Windermere Lake Cruises or for those more adventurous, water activities…. the choice really is endless….

With a full refurbishment in 2021, this modern and cosy apartment is situated on the first floor and comprises of a hallway, double bedroom, bathroom with shower, lounge/ diner and kitchen. Perfect for couples to unwind in a fantastic location. We are sure you will love it as much as we do!

A little history on your accommodation, Annie's View is on the first floor of Spinnery Cottage and built in the traditional Lakeland style. In the late 19th and early 20th Century Spinnery Cottage formerly known as the Spinnery was one of the first spinning, weaving and embroidery workshops used by locally and internationally renowned designer Annie Garnett.

We look forward to welcoming you to this little gem of a place…

Comfortable accommodation in an excellent location. Only criticism is that the toilet seat needs replacing as it is stained underneath and doesn’t meet the standard of the rest of the apartment.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the excellent location. Noting your feedback comment, we are pleased to confirm that the toilet seat has been replaced - thank you for letting us know. The owners are keen to put things right for guests so that they can continue enjoying the apartment as much as they do. Annie's View is a fantastic place to stay and with fabulous views, a great location for a break in the Lakes. Thank you for recommending to others and we hope to welcome you again soon.

A lovely little place to stay in the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere. In my opinion more could be made of Annie's view's history. Take down the generic art work of a New York USA scene in the lounge. Put up prints of the old photographs from the cottage's history as illustrated in the books supplied on the bookcase. Or some pictures up that are linked to the area. The cottage had great facilities. The shower cubicle needed a good clean as the tiles were full of mould & grime. Just lacked the attention it should deserve.

Thank you for the review, Catherine. Whilst pleased you found it a lovely place to stay and indeed a great location, we were sorry to hear there was a cleaning issue. Given that it is most unusual to receive such comments for Annie’s View, we would like to think a one off, although we shall of course speak with the housekeeper responsible and advise the owners of all you have said – including your suggestions for the apartment. Thank you for letting us know and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. It is worth noting that had we been made aware at the time, we would have gladly arranged for the cleaner to return and put right any issues for you. We are just a phone call away and we want all guests to have a great stay in the Lake District. On a more positive note, we are pleased that you would recommend to others, thank you.

The hill walking up to Annie’s view a little steep four or 5 times a day . But keeps you fit. Apart from that very handy location.

Thank you for your comments, William. Indeed, the hill keeps you very fit and of course is a part of the Lake District! With fabulous views from the apartment and a short walk to Bowness-on-Windermere, the location is perfect for a break in the Lakes. Thank you for recommending to others and we hope to welcome you again soon.
