Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We were very lucky, as when we arrived, the builders who had been working next door, pulled down their scaffolding and went away! The cottage is in a perfect location for walking down the hill to Bowness, or up the hill to Windermere. There are great cafes and restaurants a very short walk away. The on-street parking with a permit works really well. The cottage is very comfortable, with lovely decor and great quality beds and bedding. It is very well equipped and the roomy laundry room was much appreciated. We think it should be made clear that although there is an ensuite to the main bedroom, it has only a shower and handbasin, no loo.

A week on a building site

  • 1 of 5

We were not happy when we arrived at the cottage to find building work in progress to the attached cottage. The building work involved scaffolding to the front and rear of the property with ladder access from outside our lounge window and the bedroom window at the front and The kitchen window and dining room windows at the rear. Builders were using the access which meant we had to keep blinds down if we wanted any privacy at all. The cottage is marketed as romantic, Which influenced our choice to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Hardly romantic. Very noisy and no privacy. We are taking this up with home away and the owner. In our opinion this cottage should not have been let and we should have been informed of the building work and given the opportunity to cancel. This was a great pity because the interior of the cottage was beautiful. Well equipped and tastefully decorated. A shame it was spoilt for us

A lovely property which is very convenient for Bowness and the ferries.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at the cottage - it was comfortable and clean and very well-equipped, and we had everything we needed. The cottage is very convenient for getting into town and for the ferries and buses.

Lovely cottage in a great location for our 4 day break in Bowness

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is really lovely, well equipped and very clean, and is in a great location to explore. I stayed with my friend so there were just 2 of us in the cottage making it very comfortable, the space is very generous. I would stay in the same cottage again. we had the added good fortune of lovely weather, but unfortunately that cant be ordered!
