                                                              Perfectly placed and central to everything in Bowness! Very well furnished and recently re-furbished

                                                              What a fantastic time we had, location, weather, comfort, this place has it all. If we were to have been in London and stepped out of the front door, Big Ben would have been in the front garden!!! One day, we'd been for a rather long hike so we decided to have a night in and we enjoyed all the comforts of home, plenty of room and good quality of decor and furniture made for a very good stay. Highly recommended!!!

                                                              The property was conveniently located for the centre of Bowness , being very quiet and tranquil but only a few minutes walk from the centre of Bowness and the lake . Great walks nearby if you have a dog too . We have already booked again for next year .

                                                              We had a lovely stay in the property, it was just as described on the website. Ideally situated, really close to all amenities yet nice and quiet. The property was very pleasant, homely and very well equipped. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a home away from home.
