It was in an ideal quiet location, close to all shops and amenities, with its own car space. The owner was at hand and very helpful. We would definately recommend this property to anybody wishing to visit the beautiful windermere.

We ate outside most nights as the garden is wonderful with great views over the valley. And lots of space to enjoy a day indoors when it rained.

It is beautifully furnished and so comfortable.It came up to all our expectations, it has everything you need and more. It is just as pictured on the web ( in fact it is even better it is so clean and comfy). It is in a quiet road just 5 mins walk from the lake with parking permit and is so convenient for all the Lakes attractions.There are lots of lovely eating places nearby and I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. Hope to stay again sometime Thank you.
