  • "10 of us visited for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday!"

    We had such a fabulous weekend, the house is fabulous, hot tub great, beds comfy. The only thing we would criticise is the door locking system, there was an incident whilst we were there which we feel could’ve been avoided had the door had a proper lock rather than a key card system.

  • "Great location and all rooms/furniture modern and roomy, i would recommend new photos of downstairs /dining table etc as think the place is better than the photos and we were all pleasantly suprised at how it looked."

    Only negative was Hot tub was extremely hot and some of the party could not use. Everything else was great will come again for sure,

  • "House was amazing, we had 4 families, 3 of which had little ones and it was perfect for own space and each bedroom having own bathroom/shower facilities!"

    Location fantastic as only 1 mile from Bowness! This place as everything you need, iron, travel cot, high chair, etc! Only thing missing was bin liners! Sheep and ducks visit every morning out the back of the cottage! Would certainly recommend this place!!!

    Your information stated that there was no parking and nearest parking was 150 yds or meters. There is parking so should be updated I think. First aid kit out of date. Holes in my pillow. Awful plastic flowering the sitting area (why?). Back door to the garden area would not lock very well makes cottage not totally secure Induction hob yet one pan not useable on induction Staff very helpful Great location

    Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We’re really pleased to hear that you found our staff so helpful, we take real pride in offering our guests a great service. Had you notified us of these points during your stay one of our team would have been very happy to address them for you, such as swapping pillows or removing extra pans. The property listing already states that we’re pleased to offer two allocated parking spaces for this property with additional parking available nearby. For the protection of our cleaning team and subsequent guests we ask for bed linen to bagged on departure due to the Covid pandemic; we feel this is a reasonable request and guests are happy to help. We have checked the complimentary first aid kit and rear door and everything is in order. We are very lucky as you say to have such a fantastic location, we do hope these minor points didn’t impact your stay and that you had a great holiday. Property Owner

  • "The house was absolutely beautiful and very clean."

    The only thing I would recommend is maybe a cover or gazebo for the hot tub as the weather wasn’t very good but other than that everything was perfect! Also the homemade scones they made for arrival were delicious and a lovely touch.

  • "We were 4 generations of family sharing this accommodation, including 2 octogenarians and a 4 month old baby, and found the facilities, space and layout was suitable for all."

    The location is very good, merely 5 minutes drive from Bowness and within easy reach of the many attractions the area has to offer. We enjoyed the hot tub and our regular visits from the ducks. The telephone contacts prior to the holiday, and staff on arrival, were all very friendly and helpful. The only disappointment was the downstairs twin bedroom, which I would say is only suitable for children. All other bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe and drawer storage with dressing table and mirror area, plus en-suite facilities. The downstairs twin room, which has shared bathroom facilities, has very little storage, no shelf or dressing table area and no mirror, which made it difficult for my wife when drying hair, applying make-up etc. Nevertheless, we would certainly return and have already recommended the cottage to others. (Re question below on publishing my feedback - I have no request for you to publish my feedback but do not object if you wish to do so.)

  • "Hazel cottage in the oaks woodland site was exceptional."

    Cottage was exactly as shown in the website. Very well equipped for 10 people with enough space to have quiet moments. Garden and hot tub great the kids and adults alike all enjoyed relaxing after busy days sightseeing and enjoying all the lakes have to offer. Great base as very close to all the attractions being around 20-25 from the site. Staff were very helpful and responded to getting rid of a wasp nest immediately and helping move grocery delivery from main house when delivered there in error. Would definitely be back.

  • "We’ve stayed before as a group of 10 at rowan and loved it, so this was our second trip, with a newborn baby, to Hazel!"

    Everything about it was great for our group. The only comments I feel I need to make for improvement are, the shower in a bedroom upstairs was blocked and that meant the shower tray filled up. There was no potato peeler (made the roast challenging) and the door frame of the patio door was so gone there was a huge gap around the door that you could see outside. In the Jan/Feb weather that made the mornings in the lounge cold - which wasn’t ideal for the baby. Overall though these are minor feedback things that I just wanted to mention rather than complain about

  • "Lovely cottage, clean tidy and generally well equipped."

    Excellent bedrooms all with en suite facilities. My only slight criticism is that the cottages are very close together and whilst our small outdoor area was private the neighbours were very very close and their bedroom windows overlooked our hotub and seating area. The staff were very helpful, nothing too much trouble. A special mention to Mike the site manager.

The property

This lovely five bedroom cottage is set amongst beautiful woodlands on a high promontory on the edge of Bowness-on-Windermere.

An outstanding location set amongst typical Lakeland countryside, within easy reach of Lake Windermere and the ever popular Bowness on Windermere.

Set back on the eastern shores of the lake in a hidden glade, guests will be delighted by the lovely atmosphere afforded by the mature trees, wild flowers, bracken and the local wildlife.

A great location for a group of friends, walking group or large family to get together and embrace a memorable break; enjoy the beautiful walks from the doorstep and return home and enjoy a good relaxing soak in the hot tub.

Featuring a spacious ground floor layout with bright and cheery entrance hall, an adjoining snug area with flat screen TV, a cosy sitting room also with flat screen TV with woodburning stove and access out to the decked area and views across the beautiful grounds.

A modern woodburning stove makes for cosy evenings sitting together and talking about the day's adventures, enjoying a nice supper and maybe one or two bottles of locally brewed ale.

The well-equipped kitchen with open plan dining area provides a good space to hone your cooking skills and enjoy some wonderful home baking.

The ground floor also contains two useful bedrooms with an adjoining shared bathroom.

Upstairs the cottage boasts a further three bedrooms, all with modern en-suite facilities and one of the rooms is a family room sleeping four, a great bedroom for the kids to share.

The main patio doors lead outside to a spacious decked area with a luxurious hot tub, making this an ideal spot to relax, take in the beautiful surroundings, read a good book and enjoy the soothing waters of the hot tub.

A short walk takes guests down to the lake ferry where a short 'cruise' gives access to the far shores of Hawkshead and the enchanting walk to magical Tarn Hows.

All the facilities of Bowness-on-Windermere are on the doorstep and the not to be missed attractions include the hand-made chocolate shop and the wonderful walks along the Bowness promenade where the many cruise ships run down the Lake to Ambleside.

Discover picturesque local strolls along footpaths bordering the site, including the Dales Way which runs by the golf club and Crook and Staveley and for the more adventurous walks across to Cartmel Fell.

Further afield walk to Brant Fell which provides stunning views over Lake Windermere and its surrounding fells, including the Langdales and Crinkle Crags which offer some of the most outstanding challenges in this wonderful area.

A lovingly holiday home ideal for family and friends to get away- from-it-all and discover the endless delights of Lakeland.
