Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Frank and Alex,



I just wanted to say thank so much for such a lovely stay at your cottage over the first bank holiday weekend! We had such a lovely time in the Lake district and all really wished we could have been there a while longer. Thanks also for being so good about Steve dropping the keys overboard while on the ferry to Ambleside!! What a nightmare!



I was wondering if the £100 cheque I sent up with the deposit (which I think was for accidental damages) would be returned to us or if you have already disposed of it? I just wanted to confirm basically that it was or will be destroyed or sent back.



Thanks again, we will be sure to recommend your cottage to our friends and any one we hear of that is planning up trip up that way.

Lovely stay at Partridge Holme

  • 5 of 5

Partridge holme is a lovely little cottage. Its location could not be better and was perfect for our family, both as a base for getting around the surrounding area and also for wandering in to the town for meals out.

I would not hesitate to recommend to others as well as make a booking here again myself.

Clean and cosy house

  • 4 of 5

The house has all the required amenities with the exception of a wifi connection. We specifically missed this as none of us had a good mobile connection inside the apartment.

The check in and check out process were smooth and the parking permit was really handy!

The heating times felt a bit limited, but as he were there during spring time, it was not a big problem (though nights were a bit chilly!).

The location is amazing, right in the centre of Bowness, very close to really nice pubs, cafes and shops.
