Town: The towns of Bowness and Windermere are both vibrant, bustling settlements that hold enduring appeal for many visitors to the Lake District.

The forest park at Grizedale is nearby with good walks, mountain biking and the 'Go Ape' adventure playground, whilst the National Trust own a number of properties in the area - providing a somewhat more sedate alternative.

Left on 09/13/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Stormin's family Holiday
We arrived on a wet Saturday, but woke up to a fairly nice Sunday, the day was to sort shopping and whats in the location.
We were pleased to find all that we needed was centrally located, and the house was in an ideal place for getting to and from the lake on foot even when i had difficulty in walking.
We did not travel far by car because of the ferries were able to get to where we wanted to go, not shore about cost, petrol against fare, but as we had three beautiful days statring Monday.
We had a wonderful time the Thursday started ok but the weather started to turn bad, come Friday morning it was bad heavy rain, we started making tracks to go home,in fact we were all sorted by 12-00O clock so we left that afternoon.
Other wise we had a wonderful stay, the place was nice and clean and plenty of off road parking, would we stay there again ? Yes & yes again. (family of five 4.5)
We have been asked below for our information to be shared, so future guest can contact us, but we would like to remain Private Thank You

This is a lovely property to hire, it had everything you needed to make it a wonderful stay, the only thing I was a little dissappointed with was the view from the sitting room window. It is ideally situated for the village easy walking distance to the shop, the kitchen was well equiped, very clean and comfortable stay, I would recomend and have told lots of friends. We would look to book again in the future.

Well presented, a home from home

I found the property to be a real home from home, with everything you'd want at hand, including a collection of games and toys for kids as well as tapes and CD's and a stereo. The house was immaculate, I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone with a family. Also in a great position for the centre of Bowness.
