Fabulous cottage in a great location

5 of 5
We have just had a three night break in this fabulous cottage, lots of room for us all to relax, so spacious and comfortable. The garden is beautiful and great for the grandchildren to play, we were blessed with a sunny weekend so made use of the BBQ and patio area, plus walked into bowness easily, lots of choice of restaurants and pubs and a lovely boat ride on lake Windermere. So glad not to have to use the car at all. We were six adults and two children, it was a perfect place for our family weekend. Richard very helpful with any questions, answering promptly.

Lovely stay at Partridge Holme

5 of 5
Partridge holme is a lovely little cottage. Its location could not be better and was perfect for our family, both as a base for getting around the surrounding area and also for wandering in to the town for meals out. I would not hesitate to recommend to others as well as make a booking here again myself.
