what a wonderful break from the rat race of life. Me and my husband stayed at park view in January 2014,although the weather had its off days this did not spoil our stay. Park View was very easy to find on our arrival and we were so pleasantly surprised of our accommodation. It was very clean, and very light , and had everything we could have needed. The space was well furnished and it had a modern beautiful kitchen, perfect for cooking those romantic meals. it was so close, a matter of 100 yards, to Bowness where you can find plenty of idyllic shops, catering for all tourists alike, from craft shops to Beatrix potter museum . There are numerous bistros and restaurants. The walks were beautiful with idyllic village pubs and cruises you can take to neighbouring villages. Park View was lovely accommodation (home)to come back to, rest and relax. Park View was perfect for us, very beautifully decorated ,quaint, very clean and very ideally situated , perfect place to stay. We couldn't recommend it enough , we will most definitely be returning. thank you web cottages

The property is only small,but was a great base camp for a week away with only a short walk or drive to most places.It has all modern ammenities but does not have an open fire. Very clean and very well presented would definately return for a future visit.

My husband is disabled (ie walks with 2 sticks and sometimes uses a wheelchair) and before booking I ensure we are on one level, have walk-in shower and access is suitable. On this holiday we found there was a very steep hill leading from the apartment to the town which was totally unsuitable for my husband either with his sticks or his wheelchair. I mentioned this in a review I completed and was told by one of your staff to expect hills in the Lake District! I am aware that the area is hilly but I am also familiar with Bowness and knew that it is quite flat by the lake and park. The address of this apartment being park view I thought we were on to a winner. We did cope with the holiday but with difficulty and enjoyed ourselves. The apartment itself is lovely. What has upset us is the attitude of your staff when we mentioned this problem and as a result I am very hesitant about booking another holiday with your company.
“Excellent pet friendly accomodation for a couple”

The apartment is small but was well equipped with everything you need for a comfortbale stay. The kitchen is fantastic. The secure garden is also a great benefit for dog owners owners like us.
The only point I would like to make is that we feel this should be classed as a studio apartment rather than one bedroom. The lack of a door into the bedroom because everything is open plan makes it more like a studio apartment. We only mention this so that you're not disappointed on arrival
Other than that, this a fantastic place to stay in a great location. We would definitely book again and recommend to friends.

Spotlessly clean,everything we needed included, comfortably furnished.
5 minutes walk from Bowness centre, 10 minutes to the lake. Great for using the lake steamers as a bus service. Bus pick up point at Lakeside, we didn't use the car all week.
Plenty to do in Bowness, shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs.
The lighting level was lower than we liked and we found it difficult to read without augmenting the lighting. You are working at the cooker and sink in your own shadow. We would recommend considering installing under cupboard lighting over the work surfaces and providing a reading lamp in the lounge area.
