  • "This was an amazing cottage, we all loved how homely and quirky it was."

    We could not have asked for a more cosy place to stay for a weekend with friends. A short walk to local bars and shops, the hot tub was amazing and I love how much the owner loves animals. We loved it so much we have booked for next year. A 12 pm check out would be better :)

  • "Fellside Lodge was like a home from home for us during our stay in Bowness on Windermere."

    The location was brilliant as the cottage is a stones throw from the centre of town but also tucked away up a little street so not noisy at night etc. The property itself was lovely, very cosy and well well equipped. It is a really beautiful cottage and I would definitely stay there again. Clare, the owner, clearly loves dogs as there is everything you need and more at the property, for example dog bowls, dog shampoo etc etc. Sykes Cottages were also very good in terms of communication and instructions for keys etc. I would rent a holiday cottage from Sykes again.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Fellside Lodge it is such a beautiful property with everything we could have wanted."

    The location is fantastic just a 5/10 minute walk into central bowness. We would highly recommend Fellside Lodge. Our only disappointment now on returning home is that we simply cannot afford to go again next year, we immediately went online to book again but the price rise for the same time next year is just too much.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Fellside Lodge, we loved the supply of maps and books which ment we didn't have to buy any to find walks we wanted to do, kitchen was well equipped with a big fridge freezer this helped as we feed our dogs a raw based diet so we where able to keep it all fresh/frozen, the BBQ, hot tube and dog bath was an added nice touch, lots of towls blankets and dog bowls which was also nice the owners have said they have been renevating it so a couple of wear and tear bits like kitchen cubored ect but you expect that in a rented hoilday home, loved all the mugs as we love drinking tea, and the attention to detail on what the owners have already done to the cottage, We loved the lay out of this cottage, being a family of 4 and a couple without children we where able to seperate the family upstairs in the two bedrooms and couple downstairs which worked really well, very dog friendly cottage with dogs being able to stay in the rooms, a pet hate of mine is dogs only alowed in kitchen/living area, as i feel this can make it worse when their in a new enviroment even though mine are normally in the kitchen at home, so to be able to have them sleep in the room at least for the first night so they know they are safe was an added bonus, only thing i always say is we took our dogs with us everywhere but we did some extreame climbs and the dogs where exhusted, so would have been nice towards the end of our stay if we could left them for an hour of two if we new they where settled and ok, why we went for dinner, but we took them instead as it states not to leave them in the cottage unattended, ours are pretty good once they get settled after day 3 as we stay in many cottages and most have this rule but sometimes we like dinner without them, so that may have been better for them to catch up on sleep but we equally understand the rule and why its in place."

    So really only downside was that skyes contated us mid week of our stay to say we are being charged for dog mess in the garden, however we didnt pick up the message until 6pm once we came down from the mountines, and I was incredible diaspointed that evening after having a nice day, we sat down for dinner to then read and recive an email and a voice message to state this, and I was equally upset as we are always quite respectful where we stay and always clean up after our stays and equally our dogs wouldn't go to the toilet at the cottage at all and we found we had to walk them down the road to get them to do a wee, so this suprised us, but I couldn't call to find out what acturlly has happened or what we had done until the morning as they where then closed, then in the morning I contacted skyes and it was an error from head office, and we where contacted instead of someone else by accident, however I was worrying all night that we had upset the owners in someway as I'm a worrier. Accidents happen, just put a bit of a downer on our lovely day that's all. we loved that the owners had irish setters and possibly show at crufts, as I've started to show my golden retriver, so its lovely to see the breed around the house but also we love the setters. Overall thank you for a lovely stay we had gorgeous weather and our first time in the lakes celebrating a wedding anniversary and my Birthday!, its absolutely beautiful, with a lovely cottage to come back to, so thank you.

    Everything that you could think of was thought of. The decoration of the property was beautiful. We particularly loved the book selection on the bookshelf. The bedrooms were very comfortable (beds were outstanding) clean and airy. The bathrooms were very clean. The only thing that was a little bit of a problem was that only half of the very large oven was working, however, managed to get round this. It was so wonderful to stay at a holiday property and feel completely relaxed with our pets. When we return to the lakes, we will be coming back and recommending this lovely home to friends and family.

    Thank you for your kind feedback and we look forward to welcoming you, as well as your friends and family, in the future. We will also have the Lakelovers maintenance team take a look at the oven and why it might not be working. Property Owner

    Beautiful home, mostly everything you need provided. Very dog friendly- water bowls, dog towels, dog blankets provided. Dog shower down in cellar was also super helpful. A was the washer and drier. Beds lovely- little soft for us but still very comfortable. The tub in the bedroom was amazing and hottub very nice. Nice secure garden for the dogs too. Lots of lovely local walks and amazing walks a little further - highly recommend cat bells and Rydal/Grasmere water walks. Few bits missing that would be nice- coffee pods for machine provided, maybe a couple of laundry detergent tabs to be used also, we were a little confused by recycling at the property (didn't seem to have a separate bin?). Window in upstairs bathroom wouldn't open and the towel rail downstairs in the bedroom with bath tub was loose. But nothing that took away from the brilliant stay. Would happily come back, so hard to find somewhere willing to take 4 dogs that is super lovely.

    Thank you for your kind comments, we are so pleased to see that you had an enjoyable stay. We do find that beds are down to personal preference. We take all comments on board. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely property in a great position."

    It was a little disappointing not being able to use the hot tub when we arrived at 5 o’clock on the Friday. This was due to the water in the hot tub being changed that day, which we understood was the norm after every previous departure. But it was fab the rest of our visit. We had a couple of niggles at the start but these were quickly resolved. Which was great. The only other thing I would suggest is there wasn’t enough cupboard space for our food stuff and a bread bun would have been useful but it didn’t spoil our enjoyment of the cottage. It had everything else you could need. I would love to have booked it again next year. But the price has gone up by 50% to over £3000. And unfortunately that is just too much for our budget.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We take all comments on board. In order that we stay within the law and health guidelines the water in the hot tub must be changed, there is nothing we can do about this and the health and safety of our guests is of the highest importance to us. We hope we can welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    The only small downside was the property has Sky but for some reason none of channels were available even the standard channels, thankfully watching TV wasn’t essential as the views and walks are our thing.

    Thank you for your kind feedback. We are glad to hear that you and Basil enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back. We believe the sky dish had moved in the recent high wind and storms but was rectified. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay at Fellside lodge."

    There was 6 of us (3 couples) and 4 dogs and our 1 year old. The property is excellently situated and everything is so accessible. The house is lovely & cosy, and the hot tub is fabulous! The cellar in particular is a godsend with 4 dogs and how well they are included is amazing. The fact there’s a main bathroom, downstairs toilet and 2 en suites too is brilliant. There could be a few maintenance improvements to the property. For example, the tumble dryer took us ages to work out as it kept turning off. The Roman blinds in the bedrooms were a little tempremental, and the kitchen handle under the sink was loose so we kept having to screw it back on. The pin for the skybox would have been useful too as there was a couple of drama series we wanted to watch and couldn’t. A little cheap foldaway high chair would have been really useful too (we took our own but this would have saved us some space in the car). The third bedroom was also made up as a twin and all of us were couples, so that was a shame and it would have been good to have been asked how the beds should be made up prior to arrival (apologies if we missed that request however). We were disappointed on our last day as the cleaners turned up at 9am and sat in their car with the engine running which made us all feel on edge and a nuisance even though we were packing up and the check out was 10am. However, upon contacting the owner Claire, she was lovely and responded immediately. It was our first time in the Lakes and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. It is a beautiful property and we could have easily stayed another week.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Fellside Lodge. We will ask our Maintenance team to look into the issues that you have mentioned.

    It was among the best equipped and presented we have stayed in during approximately 20 years of visiting the Lakes. We were particularly impressed with the dog friendly aspect, as all too often dogs are not made as welcome as they should be. Our only issue was the walking distance from the town, but this was a small price to pay.

    We are so happy that you loved our place! What a wonderful review thank you! As owners of multiple dogs ourselves we truly want it to be equally human and dog friendly. Sorry you found it too far from the town but we always walk it in around 5-10 minutes and like the small distance for some peace and quiet as Bowness can get quite busy...especially during the summer months.

    The house was beautifully finished with many touches well thought out. Our dog loved the special additions for him and our friends who stayed with us enjoyed the amount of living space which suited the infant they had with them. When we booked, the hot tub was not part of house description and this new addition was a great treat after a day of walking. The showers were super and we always had hot water, even when the whole party of guests showered in the morning. (Please don’t include this paragraph in published feedback - only for owners). The dog bath was not clean when we arrived as someone had tried to wash dog poo and tissues down the plughole. It was very smelly and my partner had to clean it up. I think it would be useful to have a sign on the door to the cellar saying there are steep stairs behind it. The stairs are black and the first time we opened the door, there was nearly a fall when we stepped through the d

    It was a brilliant week and we were blessed with the weather which meant lots of dinners outside. The house was missing nothing in terms of utensils, blankets, amble cutlery and plates. Our only question mark was relating to some of the essentials we thought would have been included; for example, there was no washing up liquid, but a sponge was provided. Similarly the coffee machine was there, but there weren’t any pods. We’d also taken some of our own towels from home which was handy otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to use the hot tub nearly as much! Overall, we had an absolutely wonderful time and the beautiful house you’ve built was perfect for us. Our pooches settled in so quickly and all the dog-friendly recommendations were greatly appreciated. We were in town with family who stayed the other side of Bowness and Fellside Lodge quickly became the place we wanted to spend our time over their accommodation. It is a brilliant home! Thank you for having us.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the house. We are sorry that some of the essentials were missing and we will follow up with Lakelovers on this to ensure this is not an issue going forward. We hope we can welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    It was very homely, cosy, lovely and warm and very peaceful. The beds are fantastic and really comfortable. We all enjoyed out stay for the weekend. The only things we can say that are negative is the cleanliness, we do not feel that the floors had been mopped at all and were very dirty including the bedroom floors. The beds had not been made when we arrived and when the person turned up the linen they expected us initially to make up the beds ourselves. We found dirty underwear, socks and other items of clothes in one of the drawers in our room which we a big no no. One of the shower doors in the ground floor room did not close properly which in turn allowed water to leak out onto the floor. With the exception of those things mentioned above it did not stop us all having a lovely relaxed warm cosy weekend. The positives outweigh the negatives by far. thanks Neil & party.

The property

Resting on the outskirts of Bowness-on-Windermere, just below the Brant Fell, is this immaculate semi-detached cottage, Fellside Lodge.

Set over three floors and sleeping up to six guests, this pet-friendly cottage is a charming dwelling for a group trip to the scenic Lake District National Park.

You are welcomed to the property by an off-road parking space for two cars, as well as a front patio with bistro-style furniture so guests can enjoy their morning coffee in the fresh air.

Stepping in through the porch, which is an ideal place to leave any coats and shoes, then to the sitting room which has a warming woodburning stove and a Smart TV for a relaxing evening with some popcorn.

After a long day, when you just need to read the book that you're so close to finishing, head into the lovely snug for some quite time.

The kitchen/diner is a stylish and well-equipped spot to rustle up an evening meal to impress your loved ones, as you talk about your fabulous holiday around the dining table, and don't forget to take advantage of the handy dishwasher.

The ground-floor also boasts a cloakroom with WC, which then leads down to a utility room which has handy washing facilities and a fully electric motorised professional dog bath, professional dog dryer and hot/cold outdoor tap - your furry friends will love it!

Stairs from the sitting room also lead to a lower-ground-floor bedroom which boasts a king-size bed alongside a stunning freestanding bath which is very quirky and romantic, and this is complimented by a dressing table and an en-suite shower room.

For those of you who prefer to sleep above ground, head to the first-floor where there are two well-kept bedrooms; a super-king-size which can be a twin to allow for flexible sleeping arrangements, and a king-size which has the added privacy of an en-suite shower room.

Both rooms have lovely wooden features and well-thought-out decorations, and they are complimented by a spacious bathroom where guests can soak their muscles after a long day.

Outside there is a rear patio, which is enclosed for your furry friends’ safety, with furniture so you can enjoy some al fresco dining and a garage which can be used for bike/canoe storage.

From Fellside Lodge you can indulge in a number of bars and eateries, browse round the lovely local shops, visit The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction or learn more about boats and team at the interesting Jetty museum.

With Lake Windermere so close by, you can get stuck into watersports, or enjoy a boat trip across to Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside.
