Excellent value for money, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a great long weekend at the property. The location is great and the property itself suited our needs perfectly. Plenty of space for us all and the kitchen/dining set up was very sociable. John was really helpful to any queries and was fantastic when we accidentally locked ourself out of the property!

Hope to return soon!

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful easy access to the Lake, just down the hill a short distance. A short walk to the shops and all the activities.

The house was well equipped, spacious with large rooms and a lovely view. Just as described in the details for the house.

I did have a couple of queries before I booked and the owner was very quick in coming back to me, thank you for your help.

Lakeside Lodgings

  • 5 of 5

What a perfectly located home away from home. We stayed at this wonderful property for a week. The house is situated within view of lake Windemere. The picture on the site really is the view from the living room window. The accomodation is very spacious and well equipped. We were a group of 7 adults and 2 children and did not struggle for space. John is extremely helpful and quick to respond to any queries. Bowness on Windemere is a perfect base for lake cruises, beatrix potter, walking and an abundance of restaurants and bars. I loved every minute of my time spent in the property and exploring the surrounding areas. If you are looking for a perfectly located home from home you cannot get any better than this. We are looking forward to returning next year. Thanks for a fab stay John

Owner's Response: thank you for your review James. We do strive to keep the property well kept and fresh. As you can appreciate the size of property gives us a requirement for regular up keeping. We have recently completed refurbishment on the lower floor, and the other floor areas you mentioned are due for further reburbishment 18th - 20th June, followed by a scheduled update in September 17. We do look forward to welcoming you back in the future, should you visit the Bowness are again. Kind Regards john

Windermere review

  • 4 of 5

The property situation was excellent and the house was well equipped. There were a few things that could have been improved but nothing major.

Out main problem was getting into the property when we arrived. A week before I had contacted the owner to ask about keys. He sent me an email with the key pad code. After a long journey we arrived in Windermere to find the key code he had given us did NOT work. The owner did not answer his mobile or home number (in Derby) and we had NO LOCAL CONTACT. We rang numerous times but with no result. We also contacted Owners Direct but they could not contact him either. After 3 hours we were desperate and worn out! The owner eventually called saying he had been on a plane returning from holiday. He gave us the correct key pad code and we accessed the property. In future the owner should give the phone number of the local cleaning lady or leave a key with a neighbour in case there are any problems. Our Australian friends were angry and our holiday got off to a very bad start!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review Monica in relation to the property and location. With regards to your disappointment, I am so sorry with the mix up of codes given to you on your arrival, and the stress this caused, Sadly your arrival coincided with myself being on an annual holiday flight, and unable to be contacted at arrival time. In the 12 years of ownership we have never had such an issue, and I am sorry that this did occur for your visit. We have now taken steps for the code to be changed by the local caretaker and advised to visitors a day before arrival. I noticed you had requested your code a few weeks before. The new procedure now will stop this from happening again. On a positive note, I hope the wine we sent as forms of apology were received well, and I am pleased to hear you had a great week in the lakes when you settled in. Hope to welcome you back at some-point in the future. Kind Regards john

Bowness on Windermere, Is a thriving holiday town, the largest in the Lake District National Park, situated on the shores of Lake Windermere. This dynamic town boasts hundreds of shops, eating and drinking establishments from tea rooms. Italians through to Tapas Bars, it also has many fine cultural and historical attractions.

The views from Bowness out across the lake and up to the mountains are some of the finest in the Lake District.

The range of activities and things to do is almost endless. From golf, walking and horse riding to water skiing and sailing or if you want to take things at a slower pace there are many visitor attractions to browse around.

The fine 15thC church of St. Martin's is picturesquely set back from the road by a lovely approach festooned with trees and plants.

The lakeside town is popular with all ages, with a bustling focus on the lakeshore at Bowness Bay.
