  • 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.”
