    “A really lovely cottage, warm, comfortable & cosy a perfect place to stay.”

    Great location, so close to all the facilities in Bowness yet set in a lovely quiet road. You’d think you were off the beaten track. Close to Brantfell for lovely country walks or a stroll into Bowness centre. Cottage is well equipped with everything you need for your stay, parking for 2 cars and a lovely small enclosed garden. ...

    Great location, so close to all the facilities in Bowness yet set in a lovely quiet road. You’d think you were off the beaten track. Close to Brantfell for lovely country walks or a stroll into Bowness centre. Cottage is well equipped with everything you need for your stay, parking for 2 cars and a lovely small enclosed garden. Only comment would be there is no recycling facilities so everything had to go in the bin, other cottages did seem to have recycling bins. (Info in cottage says its sorted at main waste depot!!!).
