The house was so welcoming and comfortable we felt totally at home which was I'm sure due to the fact that the owners use the property themselves so many personal touches around. The dogs were only allowed in the living areas which is a good thing as lovely pale carpets in the bedrooms and hallways and I would urge visitors to respect this so as not to spoil this gem for others. Lovely large rooms and garage, all facilities including dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. Wonderful secure garden and stunning roof terrace which we managed to use despite the time of year and finally fabulous location right in the centre of Bowness. Would go back tomorrow if we could.

Felt well looked after by the hosts, they were easy to contact via email and responded quickly. The lodge is well equipped for a self catering stay and had everything we needed. I have no complaints!
