A great holiday

5 of 5
We arrived at the bungalow in glorious sunshine and were immediately impressed with the splendid garden which surrounded the property. Claverley's location is very central to both Windermere town and Bowness, and an excellent base for exploring the South Lakes The house was spacious with enough room and facilities for our needs, which included those of a centenarian and an almost one year old.. We had some minor difficulties with the heating and the clothes washer, but these were readily dealt with thanks to the owner's availability and helpfulness.

A gem of a place

5 of 5
We needed a holiday to help us recover from an awful year. This studio cottage helped us do this, Corrine met us with a wonderful smile, on entering we were blown away by how much effort and thought she had put into this wonderful holiday abode. She had thought of everything. Not to mention the treats we found during our weeks stay. The outside was perfect the garden had several sitting areas, frequent visits from so many birds and squirrels. the whole place so peaceful. there are several walks form the cottage and many just a short drive away. The village shop in Armathwaite is very good, sells newspapers as well. We really did enjoy our stay, so much so that we intend going back later in the year. Thank you Corrinne & Tim for a wonderful time.
