  • "The house was ideal for our family break."

    Eight adults and five children under six. Lots of space and well equipped. It’s ideally placed for Bowness. However on arrival the kitchen and entrance hall floors did not appear to have been cleaned. We did find a vacuum cleaner and we were able to rectify this before the rest of the party arrived. This didn’t detract from a very enjoyable weekend.

  • "Dene house ticked all the boxes for us."

    It’s often hard to find a house suitable for a group of 12 with all double rooms. The house is lovely, perfect location with plenty of parking too. Can’t wait to come back. Thank you.

  • "We had such a lovely family get together in this beautiful house."

    It had everything we needed, plenty of seating to accommodate us all. When you enter, there is a large bedroom to your left with the lounge to your right, kitchen and dinning room on this floor. From the kitchen there are steps down to the cinema room (which the kids loved). From the hall you go up the stairs to another 3 bedrooms, 2 large with ensuite and 1 single with sink and a separate bathroom on this floor. You climb up another set of stairs to 3 double bedrooms, 2 ensuite and a separate bathroom. The house is situated a few minutes walk away from pubs, shops, restaurants and the lake. Fantastic area, fantastic house, would def recommend it. A very small suggestion perhaps to the was a very cold spell when we arrived, the house was freezing, heating was set to come on at 4pm but that was the time we were allowed to check in, it took a little while to heat and might be useful during cold spells to set it to come an hour before the new arrivals. The three little steps up to the house was covered with ice, we had to try and break that up so nobody would slide on them, would be useful for (maybe the housekeepers) to spread some salt down. A shoe rack in the corridor and some pegs to hang coats (2 minor things to keep the house looking clean and tidy) would be very useful. It is a wonderful house. Thank you so much.

  • "Visited as a family for my mums 60th, the house was the perfect size for us all."

    Everything we needed we could find, kitchen was fully equipped, there was plenty of space in the fridge. Beds all very comfy. Tea and coffee was a lovely touch and toiletries in each bathroom. The Christmas tree and Christmas lights were also a nice touch. We would definitely look at returning. Thank you to Hai, very kind of you to call and check on us during our stay.

  • "The house was beautifully presented, the location excellent."

    The facilities were superb - I'm not sure if anybody will ever use all the utensils and equipment in the kitchen.....not when they're on holiday! There were no large glasses but that is literally the only thing that wasn't perfect.

  • "The property suited our needs extremely well."

    It was comfortable and clean. It was convenient for the shops, restaurants & lake. It lacked some larger glasses for drinking squash or beer, but otherwise we managed well with what was provided. The outside space though small was perfectly adequate for all 9 of us to sit outside and we were lucky enough with the weather to make good use of the area. We all enjoyed our stay there. Thank you.

  • "The pricing was a bit of a dampener."

    I realised later we could have spent almost 30% less on similar quality places in the same week.
