  • "We had a really lovely stay at Brunton Lodge."

    Great location, close enough to walk into Bowness or to the lake within a few minutes. We loved sitting in the conservatory watching the birds in the garden. It was so warm and cosy and well looked after. We will definitely be back!

  • "Initially I was worried that there may be noise from the road or the builders working on the house next door, neither were any problem at all, the road was very quiet and the builders next door were polite and considerate."

    The house is beautiful, well maintained, very comfortable, has everything you would ever need and was clean and warm for our arrival. My three year old granddaughter loved playing with all the toys and games which were provided - if you are travelling with young children they are very well catered for in this property, safety gates, plastic plates/ beakers, high chair etc. We had a really enjoyable short break and wished we could have stayed longer, thank you!

  • "Our ninth visit to this lovely cottage, so good that we’ve already booked for next year."

    It’s in a great location only a five minute walk into the centre of Bowness. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable, the conservatory is a sun trap and perfect to relax after a hard days climb. I would highly recommend this property.

    Thank you for your comments. We are so pleased to hear that you had a lovely time at Brunton Lodge. We hope that you will return to the Lake District again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Their was initially a problem with the central heating over two days; however it was sorted out immediately and we were very pleased at the very quick response of the maintenance crew."

    However, the owner/yourselves need to be aware that the heating in the main bathroom is non existent. The underfloor heating simply is not working and the so called heat generated from the towel rail ‘is a joke.’ Instructions in the bathroom for the towel rail just do not work….therefore, bathing and showering in this cold weather was most unpleasant. It needs fixing and fast. Apart from this, the stay at Brunton was lovely.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is important to us that guests can adjust the heating for their own needs and we were very sorry to hear that you were unable to heat the bathroom effectively. As a result we have set the bathroom radiator to come on earlier & for longer during the cold weather. Guests continue to be able to adjust the heating for their own requirements & we have updated the instructions to make them clearer. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay however did find afew things disappointing, The house was very cold in certain rooms."

    The children complained of being cold and the main bedroom never seemed to warm up. The downstairs utility, toilet and garden room were freezing. The house is advertised with a real fire but no welcome logs or anything at all were left and no notes,so we were unsure whether this was allowed to be used. This said the location of the house is great with just a short walk in and out to Bowness and the house itself was very clean and had everything in it. Lots of games for the children were provided which was super. We would stay again but probably in the warmer months.

    Thank you for your feedback. It is important to us that guests can adjust the heating for their own needs and we were very sorry to hear that you found some parts of the property to be cold. Following your feedback, we have set the heating to come on earlier & for longer during the cold weather and we have updated the guest information to make it clearer how the heating can be adjusted for guests own requirements. Instructions include how to boost the central heating, the availability of electric heaters to heat the conservatory and utility, as well as details of local log suppliers. Property Owner

    Kitchen very well equipped including dishwasher. Only thing missing was a corkscrew so we were unable to open our bottle of wine.

    Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Brunton Lodge. The corkscrew is usually kept in the drawer by the oven and has been returned to its usual location! We hope you enjoyed your bottle of wine when you were able to open it. Property Owner

    recycling requirements but sorted anyway. Set off the kitchen alarm several times on entering the conservatory - perhaps it is just a heatwave phenomenon! Really lovely family home with excellent facilities and lots of room.

    Thank you for your positive feedback, it’s lovely to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay. Following your feedback we have updated the guest information on waste disposal to better explain the recycling collection process. And yes it seems that the heat detectors were affected by the extremely hot weather as this is not an on-going issue. Property Owner

    We all had a lovely time and the house and garden are both perfect. Great location. Small area to improve would be the mattress on the bunk bed which needs replacing. I saw that another review mentioned this some months ago and it has not changed since then. Cannot wait to go back though! Thank you.

  • "The property was very comfortable and well equipped."

    Our only reservation was that the drive was under construction as a swimming pool was being installed in a neighbouring property. The workmen were very accommodating but the entrance to the drive , which was not very wide in the first place, was even more restricted and in fact our car suffered damage . You might also note that the Burnside Hotel, which was cited as a landmark, is no longer called that. A small point - we brought more equipment (e.g. oven cloth, tea towels, bin bags etc.) than was necessary as they were listed as required.
