We ate outside most nights as the garden is wonderful with great views over the valley. And lots of space to enjoy a day indoors when it rained.

It is beautifully furnished and so comfortable.It came up to all our expectations, it has everything you need and more. It is just as pictured on the web ( in fact it is even better it is so clean and comfy). It is in a quiet road just 5 mins walk from the lake with parking permit and is so convenient for all the Lakes attractions.There are lots of lovely eating places nearby and I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. Hope to stay again sometime Thank you.

The house is comfortable and well furnished to a good standard. The location is excellent for a car free vacation, within easy walking distance of Bowness and Windermere. There are lots of walks accessible from the doorstep. If you're feeling energetic, try the walk to the Hawkshead Brewery at Staveley - you can always catch the train back if you run out of steam after a pint, or two, of lovely ale!
