Guestbook comments from the manager

Growler Cottage is a lovely "home from home" traditional cottage. It is very comfortable and everything we needed - warm & inviting, fantastic location in the centre of Bowness and lots of amenities.

Merlin (our shihtzu) had a lovely time and says thank you for the treats and toys.

We will be visiting again in the future and will definitely receommend.

A cosy cottage with a great location

  • 3 of 5

Overall the cottage has everything you need I would suggest a few additional changes. In the main bedroom I would add a top sheet & a better quality duvet & pillows. Shelving in the cupboard would help as I found I kept my clothes in my case. The change to the bath was a great change & the fire in the living room. I had a lovely stay and will be looking to book another break next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sandra and we were delighted to welcome you back again to Growler Cottage. Your feedback and comments re bath etc were very welcome. However, we replaced all beds and some bedding last year and this included changing our duvets over from winter to summer when the weather is warmer. We do also leave extra blankets and hot water bottles for guests use. It is very hard to meet all requirements when it comes to something personal like a bed. We may consider additional storage as well as the existing tall boy and bedside units although any shelving for the walk in wardrobe may restrict the access to the attic. We very much look forward to welcoming you back in 2018.

A real home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to the Lake District and we were very impressed with the area and the cottage. Growler Cottage was perfectly placed, it was a very short walk to local shops - we found both the co- op and Tesco very well stocked - the lake was minutes away and there was an abundance of local restaurants for anyone wishing to eat out. The cottage itself was spotlessly clean and extremely well equipped, a real home from home. We parked easily every day. An added bonus was the amount of information provided eg local maps, takeaway menus, info on national trust sites etc. We would stay here again without a doubt and would highly recommend this cottage. We hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this warm and cosy cottage. Perfect location seconds away from all of the amenities of Bowness, with a Co-op and Tesco minutes away but also lots of restaurants if you're eating out. Very well stocked kitchen with everything you could ever need. Comfortable beds and plenty of space for relaxing after a day exploring the Lakes. We didn't bring a car and it was a 20 minute walk (max) to Windermere station or very easily accessible by bus/ taxi. Lake Windermere is less than 5 minutes away.
