Glencree occupies a superb high profile trading position on the main road between Windermere and Bowness. Built around the turn of the century in traditional Lakeland stone, this very attractive property has the advantage of a car park to the front as well as six well-proportioned en suite guest bedrooms and a separate one bedroom apartment for the resident owners, which features a superb and recently added balcony overlooking the woodland to the rear.

To many, Windermere is the essence of Cumbria and The Lake District and Glencree, on the road between the villages of Windermere and Bowness, is ideally placed to generate high occupancy from its attractive accommodation. Lake Windermere – England's longest lake – is only a pleasant stroll away and is set amid a breath-taking backdrop of fells and woodland as well as offering plenty of easy walking around the shoreline and lower fells. On its eastern shores are a wealth of attractions while to the west, visitors can lose themselves in a haven of tranquillity and quiet charm, so loved by Beatrix Potter and the inspiration for her lovely books.

Glencree was acquired by the present owners in 1998 and during their ownership they have substantially improved this lovely property. They have added the conservatory-style breakfast room at the front as well as the delightful balcony overlooking the woodland at the rear. All of the bedrooms have been upgraded, the en suites replaced and the property has been completely re-roofed. The owners have established a very successful business, choosing to trade on a relaxed B&B basis so there is much growth potential for a new owner if desired. Having enjoyed their many years at Glencree, the owners are now looking to retire.
