  • "A delightful cottage in a superb location."

    Walking distance to the many amenities of Bowness including bars, restaurants, shops , art galleries , cinema, lakeside and boat trips and Beatrix Potter attraction Short drive or slightly longer drive into Windermere. The cottage is set back from the main road and sitting out in the evening you would not know you were close to the centre of Bowness. I usually take supplies tea, coffee, cooking oil, hand soap , loo roll with me but need not have as all thoughtfully provided Everything you would need during your stay is provided Large bedroom on 3rd floor with luxurious shower room Double bedroom offered plenty of room. My only comment would be the twin is only suitable for young children or one older child/adult as there is limited room between beds Everything you would possibly need was provided including Netflix access Cottage was very clean and well maintained Would recommend and would stay again Only suggestions for future consideration would be a radio/alexa and a bbq

    Thank you for your very detailed, helpful and positive review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Acorn Cottage and will certainly take your suggestions on board. We hope to see you again. Property Owner
