Charming well eqipped cottage ideally situated for exploring Windemere and the Lake District

5 of 5
This was the ideal place to stay for our long weekend of discovering the Lake district and engaging in plenty of walking and rambling. The cottage comprised two levels, ideal for removing our walking garb without compromising the fine, well equipped living area, with all its amenities. The large external balcony provided outdoor relaxation together with fine views of Lake Windemere. The charming town of Bowness was a mere walk away. A cottage to be recommended

Great location, great sized property

4 of 5
The house is perfectly located, five minutes walk from both Bowness and Windermere villages, which means it's very peaceful and yet still in a great position. The beds were all comfortable, super soft in fact. Wifi worked well, except in the far corners of the far bedrooms, the heating came on quickly and there is a huge TV in the lounge, with a log burner. The kitchen had all the appliances we needed, including washing machine and dishwasher. I held off on 5 stars as the showers weren't great - adequate but they took a while to get to the correct temperature. That's the only negative point though, and we would definitely come back to stay again.
