“Great base to explore the Lake District”
Reviewed 12 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Great location in Bowness on Windermere short walk from shops and to the lake where you can get boat cruises to lakeside and Ambleside.

The cottage itself is a very nice, well decorated and clean place and well equipped. Thoroughly enjoyed resting there in the evening after a day exploring the Lake District.

Would certainly recommend this place for your holiday to Lake District.

“Beautiful cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 4 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

Our family of 4 stayed here during May half term. The cottage was exceptionally clean, pristinely decorated and really spacious. Everything we needed was provided. Contact with Kim, the owner, was great, she was happy to answer any questions prior to our stay. The location is amazing, a 10 minute walk to Lake Windermere. There are so many restaurants in the local area. We had a fabulous week and luckily the weather was hot and sunny. I would definitely recommend staying here if you can.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 10 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We were literally blown away by the attention to details - every small thing we needed, was just there! It really felt like home. We travelled the world, so it is not our first experience, but it is the best, by far!
Location is also great, in the middle of Bowness, lots of shops and restaurants around, 5 min walking to the lake.
We had a wonderful time, thank you!

“Fantastic cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 13 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just returned from a lovely stay. The cottage is spotlessly clean, really well equipped and is in a great location. There is parking outside and although spaces are limited we didn't struggle to park throughout the duration of our stay. The cottage wasn't listed as dog friendly but Kim kindly allowed my mum's Yorkshire Terrior to stay and even left a dog bowl and some treats. Check in is at 4pm but as there was no-one in before us we were able to arrive as early as we liked. Thanks for a lovely stay and we will definitely visit again!
