Clean warm cosy

Fantastic cottage with everything you could possibly need. Great location away from it all but also close to the town shops and Lake. Would definitely return.

Beautiful cottage, very central for Bowness & Windermere.

5 of 5
The cottage was as described and a lovely little gem of a property. The place was spotlessly clean & the owner Tracey left great instructions & was helpful throughout. This is perfect if you are looking for somewhere very close to shops, bars & Resturant's as it's very central just off main high street in Bowness. Would definitely stay here again & would highly recommend.
