Great central spot

4 of 5
Great place, great location. Kitchen needs a proper clean and a few new items like a good pan and a decent knife or two. Would definitely recommend. Parking - bit tricky.

Beautiful cottage in a great location. Has everything needed in a holiday rental.

5 of 5
Four of us stayed for a week in Bowness and thoroughly enjoyed everything this cottage had to offer, especially the timber deck in the garden where we had breakfast and then drinks at the end of the day. Easily accessible to Bowness with a bit of an uphill walk to the cottage after exploring the wonderful Lakes District. Very clean accommodation and comfortable beds. Would highly recommend. Thank you Anne and Robert for allowing us to rent this charming cottage.
