  • "I loved Fellside Cottage."

    I hadn’t appreciated when I booked just how close it was to the lovely town of Bowness. It is the perfect location. The cottage is finished to a high standard and spotlessly clean. We made full use of the wood burning stove as it was a chilly week so we were lovely and warm. The one thing I would say, although it didn’t bother us at all, is perhaps the cottage description should mention that the driveway up to the cottage is very narrow and steep. Some larger cars may struggle to enter and also people with mobility issues might find the driveway challenging. We had a fabulous week in the Lakes and would definitely book Fellside Cottage again

    Thank you Jane for the review and so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at Fellside cottage :) Good to hear the drive didn’t bother you as it doesn’t appear to bother other guests too, but I will forward your comment to Lakelovers. Thank you once again and look forward to welcome you back once again Property Owner

    Full of character and we were extremely comfortable for the week that we spent there. Loads of home comforts are provided and the welcome pack is a nice touch too. The location couldn't really be any better either and we will definitely be looking to return in future.

  • "Fellside Cottage is in the perfect location for Bowness."

    Quiet but very near all amenities. The Cottage is a perfect size for a couple to use. The kitchen is compact but big enough for meal prep. The bedroom is a nice size but the storage space was limited with the wardrobe being hard to use. Probably would benefit from less ornaments, though they do add charm. The bathroom is great, roomy and light, though the shower is not as powerful as it would ideally be.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Fellside Cottage. The owner will see your suggestions and can take action where necessary. Lakelovers Owner Relations Property Owner

  • "The property, location and cleanliness were all amazing."

    The slight gripe was the water pressure to the shower I was smushed into the corner to try and get under the shower as the water pressure didn’t allow it to shoot further. Other than that the amenities and everything about the cottage was great. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

    We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your feedback. We will certainly investigate your comment about the water pressure with the shower, but must mention in hot weather and extreme heat like we are experiencing at present, the heat can have an impact on the water pressure which may cause it it to dip or reduce. This is beyond our control but we will certainly take a look and investigate. Thank you :) Property Owner

    The cottage was nice and the location was perfect, just a very short walk to the lake, with Restaurants and supermarket 2 minute walk away. However, we found it difficult to get downstairs living room warm. In the end, we used the fireplace and that was fine.

    The cottage is beautiful, in a fantastic location and the comfiest bed I’ve slept in (what is the mattress?!) The cleanliness is spot on, props to whoever does the cleaning, it’s immaculate! Lovely gesture of a Christmas card, wine and chocs was provided on arrival by Sylvia, much appreciated. Sylvia goes above and beyond supplying all cleaning products, kitchen roll, toilet roll etc which is a great touch and not always provided with other rental properties. We’ll definitely be back for a 3rd visit.

    The only thing was the heating it kept turning itself down on the manual setting so was a-bit chilly for July. So I I wish now I’d have just lit the log burner but didn’t seem right in July, That’s the Only thing. The area itself is spot on for every thing lots of fine places to eat and drink The Albert for one and ample farm shops around to . We will deffo be back to fellside x

    Some updates and improvements have been made to a high standard and there is everything that you could need. I would just say that it was a little cold in the living room sometimes and you can’t alter the heating but I did find an electric heater in the cupboard, some people may not be aware of this and it might be a good to put a note somewhere about this.

    Thank you for your feedback Mrs Robinson. We appreciate the time taken to send your observations which we have now discussed with the owner. The owner has recently installed a brand new heating system, information in the property with instructions of how to alter the temperatures manually. We will make sure they are displayed more clearly. Thank you once again for your feedback and we do hope to see you again in the future. Property Owner

  • "The description of the cottage was not entirely accurate, as it did not state that the cottage was part of 3 cottages."

    If this was made clear I probably would not have booked. However the cottage itself was lovely, but the chimney needs to be swept we could not manage the fire properly. Also the rug in the lounge needs to be cleaned.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback on your recent stay at Fellside Cottage. We do not in anyway hide the cottage description, as you can see in the first picture it is an end terraced cottage. Also in the description we do stipulate 'a driveway leads to this select set of terraced cottages with parking right outside your door'. Sorry if this was not clear enough though. Although it is an end terraced cottage we feel it is quite secluded and private anyways, we hope you found this too. The owner has been made aware about the chimney and the chimney is cleaned annually. Regarding the rug this was clean but had to be removed by the cleaning team when the cottage was serviced on her departure. We are otherwise glad to hear you had a lovely week. Property Owner

The property

A gloriously romantic, traditional Lakeland cottage only a stone’s throw from the heart of bustling Bowness.

The owners of this property have undertaken a superb renovation, retaining the cottage’s original features and complimenting them with fine furnishings and appliances.

The sitting room at Fellside Cottage is a haven of comfort and charm.

Old oak beams and lintels, feature fireplace with woodburning stove, welcoming leather sofa and generous armchair make this a room guests won’t want to leave.

A pretty picture window with window seat is a place to sit and daydream.

The kitchen with breakfast bar is planned to perfection, while for more leisurely dining a table and chairs occupy a half landing and garden room with doors to the patio garden and outside area with stone-built summerhouse.

Upstairs the beautiful bedroom with hand-painted furniture and gloriously comfortable King-sized bed is set off by a pretty picture window which floods the room with light.

The separate bathroom is stylish and modern, with shower over the bath, basin and wc.

While the cottage brings a sense of peace and solitude, Bowness itself offers a wide choice of independent shops, restaurants and coffee bars.

The Royalty Cinema and Old Laundry Theatre showcase a cultural side to the village, while sport fanatics will find plenty of opportunities to make the most of the lakeside location.

Windermere Golf Club is only a few minutes away, and a car ferry regularly transports visitors across the lake to Grizedale Forest.

Please note: Strictly no car charging at the property, there are rapid electric car charging points located at Booths In Windermere approx 1 mile away from the property. Alternatively there are others located around the area.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
