A lovely touch having a bottle of wine to greet us when we arrived. The garage is perfect for storing bikes in. We really enjoyed our stay and will be visiting again later in the year.

The coach house had everything we needed and the provision of an 'arrival pack' was most welcome. Good location in Arnside with a short walk along the 'prom' to the pub in the evening and for access to Lakes. Highly recommend the coach house.

The house's location really helped to make our stay in the lakes extra special. It is only a short walk to Windermere and an even shorter walk to Bowness. The house is incredibly cosy and has everything you will need. We will definitely be back.
