Had a fabulous time

  • 5 of 5

We found our accommodation perfect in every way. Well positioned opposite the lake and point to board the various boat trips. There are many places to eat nearby, should one not wish to do their own, though there is very well equipped kitchen with all the necessary items.

Very convenient for shops, boats and buses, with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

The house was an ideal location for all 8 of us and we particularly enjoyed the easy access to the places we wanted to go, e.g. Ferry across the lake, buses to Ambleside, The Langdales, Keswick. Helped by the good weather throughout our stay, we enjoyed the week immensely.

Lovely Place in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of four couples, one toddler and two babies.

The house is located so close to the centre of Bowness, it is ideal if you don't want to travel far at all. The view from the living room and some bedrooms was lovely.

There was enough space of our group we never felt on top of each other, the kitchen, dining and living room were ample for us.

Bedrooms - the master is amazing, really big with ensuite. The other top two bedrooms share a main bathroom, which was adequate, there is also a bottom floor bedroom near the garage with a shower room. Three bathrooms is sufficient for four bedrooms.

We had a lovely time, none of us had a problem with the place - we really enjoyed it.

The place is clean, the owners are friendly, there is enough amenities. We have all said we'd come back and we will. Thank you John

fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Joint holiday with 6 adults family members. Spacious and clean though the decor is dated the property has everything you need for a great holiday. Communications from the owner were timely and welcoming, we did not need anything whilst we were staying at the property there was a reassuring offer of help if we needed to call him. Thank you for a great holiday.

Our best accomodation in Bowness yet

  • 5 of 5

Firstly we'd like to say how communicative John was before and during this trip.

We went as a group of 6 for our first UK break together and we all feel the accommodation, facilities & location were perfect. Everything worked i.e. toaster, oven fridges/freezers etc & kettle with no issues whatsoever. We were slightly worried after the first review on here! (beds were comfy too)

We couldn't have timed our trip more perfect with hurricane Demond hitting Cumbria on the second day! John messaged us reassuring that if in the event we couldn't get out, due to closed down roads, we could stay longer on our final day.

I've personally stayed in multiple apartments/houses/cottages in Windermere and this one was by far the best.

We will definitely be coming back here next year and are already planning it!

Thank you very much.

Superb location, excellent views, spacial, garage

  • 4 of 5

Have now come back from our week's stay here. Concerning the previous negative review, everything was working fine. Cannot however comment on the cooker as I don't cook when I am on holiday!! Not cooking is part of the holiday!

Superb location with great views from the lounge and upper front bedroom down to the pier, Lake Windermere and the mountains beyond. A one minute walk to the pier.

House was very spacial with the added bonus of a double garage. Lots of room.

John was extremely helpful and could not have asked for better communication.

Thank you.
