    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    A comfortable cottage with a wood burning stove in the cosy sitting room, this property provides great accommodation for two adults (plus a child up to the age of 8 and a baby in a cot in the Nursery if needed.) It has the benefit of being set within a working farm, giving the opportunity to witness some of the highlights of the farming year first hand.

    It is a great base for any Lakeland holiday, with a range of walks from the doorstep, whilst also being within easy reach of many tourist attractions, from The World of Beatrix Potter to Wordsworth's former home, Dove Cottage at Grasmere.

    A unique combination of rural tranquillity yet only 5 minutes drive from the village of Bowness.

This is a well-equipped fit for purpose holiday cottage in a gifted working farm setting. The cottage provides stunning Lakeland and hill views. We found the cottage to be adequate for our needs and within walking distance of Bowness- on Windermere about 2.5 miles. The location is ideal for Windermere, Hawkshead and Kendal. We were however disappointed by the double... more

We had a wonderful stay - the cottage was comfortable, very clean, well kitted out, peaceful and the couple looking after us were very friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it compared to a lot of what's out there - we could see sheep and fields and nothing else from our bedroom and lounge windows which was stunning. There were just... more

Management response:

Thank you very much for your comments - we're glad you enjoyed your stay. As you note there are a few static caravans near the cottage, however we have found that guests at the cottage rarely notice they are there, as access to the cottage is restricted to the caravaneers. We try to keep our prices low and this is... more

Welcome from the caretaker was friendly and efficient. The property was clean and well-kept internally. Outside was clearly being decorated at the time I stayed. It is close enough to Bowness to be convenient, but far enough away that you don't have crowds walking past the door. Love the views from the cottage and the peace and quiet. However, the... more

Management response:

Thank you for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I apologise for the lack of cable for the DVD, if you had contacted the Caretaker during your stay I'm sure we would have been able to fix this problem! more
