  • "Everything was very clean and tidy, the decoration was quite nice and the facilities were modern and in a very good shape."

  • "We had a great stay."

    The property is in a great location, 5 mins walk from all the shops and restaurants in Bowness. The property is also very well equipped with parking inside and in front of the garage, a big lounge and all the equipment you could need in the kitchen. The bedrooms are a little on the smaller side.

  • "The property is on one floor but plenty big enough for a family of 4."

    Well presented and had everything (and more) you needed. Very clean and modern. Will definitely stay again. One thing, the parking was big enough for our Mazda SUV as long as you pulled right up to the garage.

  • "This is a superb and very well-equipped apartment, which was spotlessly clean on arrival."

    It is ideally placed on a quiet road which is very convenient for the bustling centre of Bowness. It is a short walk to lots of restaurants and to the jetty from where the boat trips across the lake depart.

  • "Appreciated the lovely apartment, high quality furnishings and exceptionally clean."

    Garage brilliant for our bikes. A few more cushions for the sofa would have been nice. Pretty easy walk to some good restaurants.

  • "Even though we had a garage,on arrival there was a van parked across the drive so unable to park."

    Then during our stay it happened again whilst we were out. So again struggled to park near property.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at Bow Peak. We are sorry to hear a van was parked in the front of the garage upon arrival. I believe it was a courier van which was delivering to one of the surrounding properties which leave in good time of arrival. They would have been happy to move it if you needed it too. We hope you otherwise had a lovely week. Kind Regards Property Owner

  • "We were very impressed by the property."

    It was clean and spacious for the 4 of us living there for a week. We loved the fact that it all looked brand new, the kitchen units and appliances looked new and the bathroom was a very pleasant surprise as it looked as though it had just been renovated. We only used our car once to drive to another area and took the boats to other areas around Windermere Lake. The garage was big enough for 2 cars, but if you have a wide car, it will be a tight squeeze at the sides. Our car was a Yaris Toyota and easily fitted on the front forecourt without spilling over into the pavement. Bowness on Windermere was about a 10 minute walk down a hill and all the shops were local. The area was buzzy and lively with plenty of restaurants and bars. We particularly liked Porto's in Bowness. All in all, we loved the area and the accommodation.

  • "The apartment was in a good location and had a great view of the Langdales."

    It had everything we needed and being able to park outside the apartment was a bonus

  • "Bow Peak is a good sized 2 bedroom 1st floor apartment with plenty of space for the four of us (2 adults, 2 children under 12)."

    The kids loved the twin room and the double bedroom was a decent size with wardrobe space. The kitchen was excellent with everything we needed, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, oven, very clean and modern. The bathroom was again clean and modern with a lovely walk in shower, great after a long day of hiking. Lounge was a good size and had a dinner table which was perfect for meals and playing board games. The space in front of the garage was ok, but not quite comfortable enough for our car (Hyundai Santa Fe), we had to park it as close to the garage door to avoid jutting into the pavement too much. Location was excellent for us, walkable to Bowness and the boats, and to Windermere, and driveable to all the other things we did (Helvellyn, Coniston, Ullswater). Possibly the only (very small) down sides were there was no drawer space in the main bedroom, just hanging space; the rainfall shower head was a bit drippy but the other one was perfect; and the stairs up to the apartment may not be great for anyone with difficulties, definitely not suitable for wheelchair users. Otherwise this is a perfectly sized apartment for a family of 3 or 4 in a great location to explore the southern Lake District, and we had great weather which made it one of the best holidays we've ever had.
