  • "We had a fantastic stay at Fellside."

    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

  • "The property itself was absolutely perfect - really couldn’t have asked for a better location, facilities, comfort and the like."

    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

  • "Excellent facilities and location, brilliant for dogs with the throws and towels provided, the courtyard is safe for dogs which was our main concern, Very difficult to find a negative comment, my only comment would be to get your cleaners to move the furniture when they clean as when we cleaned on our last day we found a lot of old dust!"

    Already recommended to a friend who is going to book. Loved it. Paul

    Thank you for your feedback Paul, we are very happy you loved it and thank you for recommending to a friend. Your comments re the cleaning have been passed on to the housekeeping team as we always strive for improvements wherever possible. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful home in a perfect location, just a 10 minute walk from Bowness village and also the lakeside."

    The property was very well equipped for humans and especially dogs, and suited a multi-generational family weekend break. Would recommend this property and would stay here again.

  • "Wow this is a beautiful spacious cottage."

    It has been tastefully decorated with lots of lovely finishing touches.The cottage was lovely and clean and apart from the dog washing facilities which are an excellent idea you wouldn’t be aware it was a dog friendly cottage. It is just a short walk (10 mins) into Bowness-on-Windermere where there are some wonderful restaurants and bar.We will definitely re-book this little gem.

    Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are very happy that you enjoyed it so much. As owners we strive to keep it running at the highest standard so we are always happy to hear that it was up to the highest standard and enjoyed. We will look forward to welcoming you back in future.

  • "Excellent house and location."

    Very good standard of equipment and finishings. Not particularly dog safe in yard area, as previously reported, and no brush to sweep up all the leaves, which was a problem as dog mess in the area, which I stood in before I had even entered property. Laundry basket in bathroom was full of dirty linen from previous occupiers, which was not the best welcome on day one. However, this has not put us off, and we have already booked for two weeks next January.

    Thank you for your honest feedback. We are sorry you had issues with the housekeeping. This has been reported to Lakelovers and will be put right going forward. The garden has now been cleared of leaves and we apologise profusely that others had not cleaned up after their dogs, that is unforgivable!! We have plans in place for the garden area which will sort out any perceived security issues for dogs going forward. Watch this space! Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay in your house - thank you!"

    The house, furnishing, facilities, position in Bowness village were all wonderful. It felt very spacious, relaxing but full of quality. We found a few things that needed fixing which we felt were easily missed (we gave the detail to the very accommodating house-manager when she came to clean). We are already looking forward to returning.

  • "Hi we all thought that the property had everything we could possibly need."

    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.

    Cottage itself was lovely, felt cosy whilst really spacious. All the facilities were great, dog grooming and throws, towels were great addition. Could have done with a stiff yard brush to scrub the steps, they are really slippery when wet. Also, some fencing to stop the dog trying to walk on the garage roof... Booking for next year!!!

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.

Once in Lakeside, you can visit the popular aquarium or hop aboard the 3.2-mile-long heritage railway to Haverthwaite, and whilst on that side of the Lake, take a tree-top adventure at Go Ape in Grizedale.

Also nearby there is a golf course, some great walking and cycling trails and the market town of Ambleside which has a great number of shops, eateries, museums, galleries, and the ruins of a medieval castle.

You'll never be bored with Fellside Lodge as your base, so be sure to enjoy the best of the Lake District from your magical holiday home.
