    “We had a great time.”

    Gillercombe feels like a home from home. It's tidy, spacious and close to all the amenities in Bowness. It's recently been done up and is looking great. The house is big enough that even with 4 children and 4 adults in it, it doesn't feel crowded. The young children can be wathing TV upstairs, we can watch somethign downstairs, and the older kids can be using their computer in the dining room.
