The property is in very good location with the town only been 5mins walk. It has nice views over the lake and is a large comfy property. We really enjoyed staying in the property and at Bowness on Windermere, there are some really nice restaurants, walks and near surrounding towns. We would definitely return.

Mrs Priestley, Barnsley, December 2013

It was a really lovely apartment, clean and welcoming, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay thank you. It is a really good sized property and easy access to the town below as well as walks in nature. The kitchen is well stocked with cutlery, crockery as well as a dishwasher which was great, it was also very clean inside. The fireplace was wonderful to sit by.

Mrs Culwick, Brackley, December 2013

Excellent accommodation; clean and spacious, in a quiet area surrounded by countryside.

Mr Burdon, Sunderland, October 2013

The accommodation was very well maintained and clean. The location was good, 5 minutes into Bowness for shops and restaurants.
