Lakeside Lodgings

What a perfectly located home away from home. We stayed at this wonderful property for a week. The house is situated within view of lake Windemere. The picture on the site really is the view from the living room window. The accomodation is very spacious and well equipped. We were a group of 7 adults and 2 children and did not struggle for space. John is extremely helpful and quick to respond to any queries. Bowness on Windemere is a perfect base for lake cruises, beatrix potter, walking and an abundance of restaurants and bars. I loved every minute of my time spent in the property and exploring the surrounding areas. If you are looking for a perfectly located home from home you cannot get any better than this. We are looking forward to returning next year. Thanks for a fab stay John

Great Family Holiday

5 of 5
The house is in a great location just a short walk to everyhting you need. The kids called it an upside down house because the living areas are upstairs which worked really well for our group, especially as each bedroom has its own facilities!! The customer service we received was first class, great communication and really accomodating of our needs, a real pleasure to deal with!
