“A friendly faulty towers in the centre of Bowness”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2011

We stayed here last minute in August this year and we were pleased with the great central location, close to bars and shops, but not too noisy, even though it's near a main road. The cottage has beautiful gardens and friendly owners (the male owner knows everything so be warned!) and a private car park around the back for guests which is great!
However... they really could do with reading the advice people give them, especially with regards to the dog smell throughout the cottage, old, outdated, cold rooms and showers with no pressure. The webpage listing is truthful, explaining that there is no cooked breakfast, but for £75 a night in an overpriced B&B this should be thrown in!.Needless to say, I'm sure there's better accommodation in Bowness for less!

We spent 2 nights at Holly Cottage and had a lovely time.
Jan & Jim were very hospitable and Jim even very kindly changed our flat tyre in the rain for us!
I'd highly recommend a visit to Bowness-On-Windermere and a stay at Holly Cottage
