About Deborah Lupton

We are a husband and wife team, Dave is from Liverpool and I am from Birmingham. We spent many weekends and holiday in Windermere and the surrounding areas before moving here full time 13 years ago when we purchased Cambridge House guest house in the centre of Windermere. We have owned Revel Stones Apartment for 11 years and it is a beautiful little property in an perfect location - we enjoy walking and spending quality time in the Mountains, Hills & Fells of Windermere and the surrounding areas with our dog Oscar.

Deborah Lupton purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Deborah Lupton chose Bowness-on-Windermere

We purchased Revel Stones as we had many enquires through our guest house website about self catering for families with small children & a dog - we thought it would be a good idea to offer this facility. We decided on Revel Stones because it is a quirky property, plenty of character, in a quiet location but really close to everything. It has been refurbished to a good standard and offers the modern traveller all the comforts of home, new carpets throughout, new windows in the lounge to name but a few of the improvements in order to keep the property to a good standard with your comfort in mind. Has its own private parking space opposite the property

What makes this cottage unique

Revel Stones is a bright modern property, that sleeps 4-5 offering 2 bedrooms on the lower ground floor both en-suite. There is a double sofa bed in the lounge for larger families. There is a washing machine and full cooking facilities, the heating system has just been fully renewed a Hive control system and a new Mira power shower in the twin en-suite, a new electric shower and the double bedroom en-suite, new carpets & curtains in 2017. Revel stones is situated on a quiet residential street and is a few minutes walk to the shops, cafe's, bars and restaurants, and a 5 minute walk to the lake. Private parking space for one vehicle opposite the cottage

Comfortable centrally located property

  • 4 of 5

We were 4 New Zealanders who had never been to "The Lake District" before. We found our week stay at "Revel Stones" very central in Windermere, where we walked to all the places this town had to offer. The cottage had all we wanted for our self catering needs. We were able to park our car nearby on street parking. We absorbed ourselves in this beautiful area with day trips in all directions from Windermere.

Great base for the whole region !

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is as described in all the adverts. It's 5 to 8 minutes walk for all bars and restaurants. We took the ferry to the other side of Windermere for a quid and enjoyed a long walk along the banks of the lake. The walls to next door and above are a bit thin and the local neighbours just happened to wear bovver boots and stomp up and down their stairs 15 times a day but we just turned the telly up :-). On the day it rained all day we watched the supplied videos or logged into our phones via the wifi to check emails etc. The facilities within the cottage were everything we needed prior to our days out of exploration and hill walking with our English Cocker Spaniel. All - in - all great value. Dave and Deb you have a really lovely place !

Perfect Bowness town cottage for family of four

  • 5 of 5

What a superb place. Really did the job perfectly for us. We wanted it to be central town location wise as we wanted to park the car and not have to use it all week. It is a ten minute stroll down the hill to the lake via all the shops and eateries and also the Fells are near as you simply walk up the street and you get to superb views within a few minutes over the lake. The cottage is clean, cosy. Two bedrooms, one double, one twin and each with an en suite. Great shower, warm heating and a cosy living area with sofa, armchair, dining table for four and a perfectly fine kitchenette. Really overall suited us superbly. Parking is on road and free and you're never more than a minute away from the front door. Owners are very responsive and are nearby. Lots of cute period touches in the property. TV with sky basic package plus integrated dvd super. Quiet neighbourhood. We loved it.
