    Excellent apartment unfortunately I left 2 nights early as the noise that was coming from upstairs was to much I had one reasonable night out of 5 and left before the week was done

    Thank you for your feedback, and apologies you had such an experience. This is not normal and may have been due to holidaymakers in a different Lake Lovers property above. We hope you liked Bowness nevertheless and glad you liked our apartment. Property Owner

  • "Absolutely perfect location for a break in the lakes."

    We were able to leave our car and explore via boats and buses. On days we did use car we were always able to park in the residents car park on our return. Lots of eating places within Bowness. Would defo recommend Ta Hole in’t Wall for food. Bed was lovely and comfortable - only problem - for some reason there was no studs or buttons on the duvet cover and duvet kept sliding out. I had safety pins with me so pinned it in. We never ate main meal in apartment but there seemed to be everything there you would need and more. Electric heating worked brilliant for the couple of nights it was cold on our return. Our main gripe would be the apparent foisty smell when entering the apartment. We assume it is some issue in the bathroom. The bathroom is situated near the entrance. The bathroom was lovely and clean, no mouldy grouting or anything so can only assume there may be an issue with the extractor fan or drain traps needing cleaning. Everytime we used the bathroom for bath or shower we dried it down and opened window. In fact the windows and doors were open all the time we were there (and even when we went exploring) to blow the place through. It would not stop us staying there again but would hope it might get investigated when apartment is vacant

    Thank you so much for the great feedback!!! Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved our stay."

    Think this may be our go to for Bowness now. We originally had an airbnb booked but after that got cancelled and I found this, luck was definitely on our side. So incredibly close to everything in town and it was relatively easy to find. I have stayed in this area lot of time before so know it well but the directions given were spot on. There is a little set of stairs at the bottom of the hill which go out to the front of the Beatrix Potter café and the bottom of town, that was very handy. The apartment itself was really a home from home, if not better. The bed was so comfy and the overhead rain shower was a delight to use. I was made up with the dishwasher and although there is no washing machine, there are laundrette's up in Windermere so not too much of a fuss. I am already looking at dates to come back here as I felt so welcomed and at home in this little apartment. Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for your brilliant feedback. We are glad you had a really lovely stay and loved the apartment and Bowness so much. It's a lovely place to stay. Thanks again. :D Property Owner
