The accomodation was very nice. The Owner was very welcoming and informative. Nice view from the lounge of the Lake. Easy to walk up and down to Bowness on Windermere.

We were given a very hospitable reception on our arrival and had all the necessities for a pot of tea or coffee and even a slurp of sherry if we took the fancy. The stay was just what we needed and the views flawless, 15 minutes walk from Bowness where we enjoyed some nice evenings and a gentle saunter back under the star filled skies. If you are a budding chef you may find the small kitchen a bit limited, but that would be the only criticism of an otherwise clean, homely apartment, with lots of room to stretch out, relax and wind down.

The owner was very nice & helpfull. The cottage overlooks the lake, with great views from the garden. The accommodation is the top floor, and is tastefully furnished with antique furniture. The bedroom was spacious, and had a comfortable bed. The sitting area was plenty big enough for two, and it had a small kitchen area which was handy for cooking the odd meal. A very quiet location, set in large gardens, and about 15 minutes walk from the town centre. We would definitely stay here again.
Idyllic Property with amazing Views!!

The owners of the property were extremely accommodating and friendly! The property was idyllic and a lovely place to spend with my new husband and baby of 5 months! It was situated so close to the town center and would of made a lovely walk if we didn't have a pram (as there is no pathways!)There is everything you need in the property and it is very homely with amazing views of the lake! We definitely did not want to come home!!
