Wonderfull stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little barn loft conversion to stay in. This accommodation was perfect for the two of us and had everything we needed and the location is absolutely perfect. Everything is on your doorstep and everything the village of windermere has to offer is no more than 5 minutes walk away.For those seeking somewhere a little more busier Bowness is only a short walk away or bus ride for the less energetic. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to friends.

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't do this place justice. So lovely, very cosy and location is great. We were very surprised with what was there, full kitchen of pots, pans etc, plus tea towels, dish clothes, washing up sponge, washing up liquid, fridge and freezer and an extremely clean oven. The sofa is huge and very comfy. Tv and DVDs plus Internet and wifi. The bed was so comfy didn't want to move out of it in the mornings. The location is spot on, just seconds to walk to the centre of Windermere where there are plenty of shops, bars and places to eat. Bowness is about a lovely 25min walk. All up hill back so we caught the bus. If I had anything to say negative it would be that the position of the sink with the shower it is a very tight squeeze to get to the toilet and there are two velux windows which could benefit with having blinds especially as it got light at 4:20am. Value is amazing and a lot better than staying in a b&b. Would like to come again and bring the dogs next time.

Lovely cottage weekender

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in James' cottage for 2 nights. It was just perfect and such good value for money. Great location, right in the centre of town near a couple of grocery stores. Easy to find parking on the street. Flat was immaculately clean with heaps of pots, pans, utensils, appliances to do home cooking. It did take a little time to warm up with the heater/electronic fireplace but once they were going, it was very cosy. Good, quick communication with the owner when the hot water didn't work. Problem easily solved. Would definitely recommend for relaxing weekend for couples or friends.

Location fantastic, parked the car and went everywhere on foot or via ferry. Approx 30 min walk to Bowness ferry. Very clean, warm and inviting. Exceptional communication with the owners. Despite the drizzle we had a truly wonderful stay. Thank you we will definitely be looking to book again in the future.

Lovely little place with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for 5 days with our dog and were so pleased to see that the location was fantastic, so close to everything but quiet at night. We settled in very quickly and were blessed with wonderful weather. The accommodation was all we needed for the 2 of us with everything in its place. It has been the best break we've had for ages, thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The last time we came to the Lakes was 37 years ago for our honeymoon and this was better!

Fantastic accommodation and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous little loft with great facilities, gorgeous comfy bed and settee. Great kitchen facilities. The location was absolutely fantastic too, literally a minute or 2 walk and your in the centre of Windermere village, 20 minute or so walk and you're in Bowness. Parking pass is a great feature too. Only little downside we found was that the skylights didn't have blinds. Would most definitely recommend and will hopefully be back!
