Easily accessible to Bowness with a bit of an uphill walk to the cottage after exploring the wonderful Lakes District. Very clean accommodation and comfortable beds. Would highly recommend. Thank you Anne and Robert for allowing us to rent this charming cottage.

We had our grandson with us and the highchair and cot were very useful. The furniture was tasteful and the master bedroom had a beautiful view. The rooftop terrace was the cherry on the cake. We spent many hours there admiring the view of the Lake. The house is situated in a quiet, peaceful cul de sac but the position of the house is very handy for all amenities in Bowness. The garden is secluded with lovely trees and plants. If towels had been provided it would have been useful because of the number of us staying there.The use of the local hotel swimming pool was expensive, especially as pur 5 month old grandson wouldn't have stayed in for long. I think that details about this amenity should have been stated much more clearly in the house description.
