A thoroughly enjoyable short break in a great property in the lovely Lake District

5 of 5
Due to work commitments, we asked the owner, Richard if we could possibly book a minimum of two instead of three nights and he kindly accommodated our request no problem at all. A few days before our arrival, he sent us an email with attachments containing information on how to access the bungalow; how to operate the heating and other information regarding WiFi and password, operating the cooker, microwave etc. Having therefore familiarised ourselves with the information beforehand, this meant on our arrival we were quickly able to, for instance, adjust the heating to our own comfort. As we always bring a hamper of food and beverage essentials with us when self catering, we then enjoyed a cup of coffee while wandering round the bungalow, familiarising ourselves with our home for the next two days. The bungalow sits amidst very large, impressive gardens. Inside, all the rooms are really spacious and the beds were very comfortable. One of bedroom has an en suite and the main bathroom has a very good separate shower and a huge bath. In the living room there is ample, comfortable seating and, our favourite feature, a lovely wood burning fire which we thoroughly enjoyed using. It was so relaxing to sit nice and cosy in the living room with the fire burning, a glass of wine in hand, looking out at the gardens and watching the snow showers come and go. The bungalow is in a great location and Windermere and Bowness are both an easy stroll either way to enjoy the many bars and restaurants. We had a lovely stay here and our only regret is that it wasn’t for longer and obviously, due to the time of year, we couldn’t make more use of the beautiful garden and dining area outside. We hope to visit Claverley again sometime very soon.

We had a lovely stay at Ellie's View in Bowness. Location just a few minutes walk to Lake Windermere and all amenities on way to the Lake. Comfortable and clean property with all items that we needed for our stay - thank you!
