    “Home from home”
    This is the second visit we have made to this apartment and it won't be our last. It is a home from home. It has everything we need. Wifi, iron, hairdryer, dvd, sky.... the list is endless. We have a dog so the small garden is brilliant. We come straight out of the apartment and into the centre of bowness we don't have to use the car if we don't want to.
