We've had a fabulous weekend, peaceful and relaxing, a great escape from the Christmas mayhem. Would love to return.
Had a great stay at the apartment with my wife and 3 year old son. It is spacious, clean, comfortable! The location is ideal for Bowness-on-Windermere and the views from the apartment are outstanding. The owners also made our stay over Christmas extra special with a tree and gifts. Would whole heartedly recommend this accomodation if you are planning on heading to the Lakes
Excellent, location with fantastic views, didn't use the car much due to location. Very clean and spacious. Weather was brilliant as well so had a great time. Would visit again !
We loved this apartment! The view is superb, we could have just gazed at it for the whole stay. But the rest of the apartment was also extremely comfortable, spacious, warm, clean and very well equipped. The bedroom is very quiet and the bed's incredibly comfortable, the bathroom has the best shower we've had across Britain! Kitchen has everything we needed, we cooked several times.
The booking process was simple, the directions were clear, everything went like clockwork. A perfect stay.
Stunning views over Lake Windemere from the dining table in the sitting room. Perfect way to start each day and end each day of sightseeing in the beautiful Lake District. Bed extremely comfortable, as were the incredibly comfy sofas. An abundance of tourist brochures in the drawers of the coffee table made selecting things to do quite easy. Kitchen well fitted out and spotless. Bonus was the glimpse now and then of curious cows looking in from the adjoining paddock into the windows ;) The walk down to the village centre was brisk .. the walk back uphill less so (but invigorating and helped work up an appetite). Bathroom well appointed .... overall our stay in Bowness was an absolute delight and we were sorry to leave.
Wonderful view, great amenities, good supply of local tourist information, especially about local hiking. We were a family of four, three adults and one child and the apartment was a perfect fit. Good communication from the owner, all was as promised.
We stayed here for seven days and would thoroughly recommend the top-floor two-bedroom flat. Ignore the walk up the steep hill; the views from the bay window more than adequately compensate for the effort. The premises are extremely comfortable. Only one very minor drawback. We wished the fridge had even a small icebox. Other than than, it was a perfect base for touring the Lake District.
Bowness is a large village on the edge of Lake Windermere. The lake offers all manor of watersports including sailing and canoeing, there are details of boat hire in the apartment. There are numerous pubs, restaurants and a cinema within walking distance. Bowness is the home of the Beatrix Potter museum and a short car journey from the writer's home.
For the walker there are details of walks from the doorstep up onto Brantfell behind the house.
This is an ideal base for exploring the Lake District
