  • "A delightful cottage, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with no expense spared."

    We loved the kitchen that had everything we needed and seemed brand new, and the luxury bed linen on the large and comfortable bed, and the thick white towels on the heated rail! (Beautiful curtains too!} Luxury! Every window has a pretty view and it's so near to the centre and the lakeside. The garden was perfect for the dog to wander in and there was a real sense of privacy and peace. Thank you.

  • "We had a great week in this cosy cottage, it’s compact but everything we needed was there and the dogs loved the safe, enclosed garden."

    It would be lovely to sit out in the summer. An outside light would be a huge improvement as we arrived in the dark in a torrential downpour to find the cottage in complete darkness, also some heating/lights on arrival would have been more welcoming. It was very handy being able to park at the door however it would be a bit optimistic to have two cars there. The area is much smaller than it looks in the photos so very little room to manoeuvre. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

  • "Would have been nice to have a Christmas tree up, as we were staying over Christmas."

    Didn't feel the dogs were very welcome as there were so many signs up saying what you couldn't do with the dogs.

  • "We absolutely loved our holiday in Jessicas cottage."

    It felt so private, quiet and utterly relaxing! The cottage itself was well equipped, clean, and very cozy. The garden was lovely although we didn’t spend too long sitting it it, because mid October just wasn’t quite warm enough. It was nice and secure for our little pooch. The cottage is positioned perfectly for walks straight out onto Brantfell, and only a 5 minute walk to Bowness centre, but be warned it is a STEEP climb back up the hill!! We had a few clear nights and the clear skies were amazing, very little light pollution. We would 100% return.

  • "Lovely cottage in a good location."

    Thought it was a detached cottage from the advertised pictures but is end of terrace which could be concerning having dog's that could bark and disturb next door. Great having use of washing machine/tumble dryer. Nice garden. Some small maintenance issues e.g toilet roll holder kept coming off/bathroom light cord very flimsy/not sure if all the windows would open as seemed to be sealed. Overall nice stay in a nice cottage in a great location.

  • "Fabulous accommodation."

    We did some great walks from the cottage and Bowmess was a really good base for exploring the area. The cottage was clean and well equipped and the enclosed garden was great for the dogs. A sensor light outside would have been beneficial but otherwise a fabulous property. We had an amazing time.

  • "We have stayed at the property before so knew what to expect, that it’s a little tired and basic but the cost reflects that and the location outweighs it, but this time the property was quite grubby which we never had before."

    There were a lot of dog hairs in the rug and carpet, we have dogs we understand but it looked like it hadn’t been vacuumed in a while. The bathroom is in desperate need of replacement, the shower is next to pointless and the bath very old and small. The mattress is also in need of replacing, it has no support at all and gave us both a bad back. Perfect little cottage in a fabulous location, with just a few small changes could be gorgeous! We’ll use Lakelovers every visit, but will only go back to Jessica’s cottage once they have updated those things.

  • "Pretty cottage in a great location."

    Garden was tranquil, private and enclosed for the dog. Cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable. Bathroom was basic and in need of updating, but spacious and functional. However that didn't spoil a fantastic week. Lakelovers were easy to contact whilst away and dealt with a minor issue very efficiently. Would recommend and return.

  • "WE HAVE PREVIOUSLY STAYED AT JESSICAS COTTAGE AND REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAY BUT I THINK THIS TIME THE PLACE WASN'T AS CLEAN AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN AND I THINK THE OWNERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THIS AS THEY ARE PAYING SOMEONE TO CLEAN THE PLACE ON THEIR BEHALF."

    WHEN WE LEFT I SWEPT UNDER THE SOFA AND IT WAS OBVIOUS IT HADN'T BEEN SWEPT IN A WHILE. I BRUSHED UNDER THE CUSHIONS ON THE SOFA AND IT WAS FULL OF CRUMBS AND HAIRS SO HADN'T BEEN DONE IN A WHILE EITHER. THE BATH PLUGHOLE WAS DISGUSTINGLY FULL OF HAIRS AND THICK SLIME FROM AGES BEFORE WHICH I PULLED OUT AND DISPOSED OF. THE LIGHT FITTING IN THE LOUNGE IS VERY DUSTY. THERE ARE LUMPS OF DUSTY FLUFF COMING OUT FROM UNDER THE RADIATOR IN THE MAIN BEDROOM. THE GARDENER CAME AND HE HALF FILLED THE BIN WITH HIS GARDEN WASTE WHICH MADE IT DIFFICULT TO USE THE BIN FOR OUR TWO WEEK STAY. THE BED LINEN AND TOWELS WERE NOT CHANGED AFTER ONE WEEK AND NO ONE OFFERED FOR A CHANGE WHICH I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED IN. THE VAC SMELLED DISGUSTING AND DIDN'T PICK UP WHICH I ASSUMED IT WAS FULL AND I WASN'T GOING TO EMPTY IT SO I BRUSHED THE CARPETS UPSTAIRS AND ON THE STAIRS. WE HAVE A SELF CATERING PROPERTY IN CORNWALL WHICH WE CLEAN AND SERVICE OURSELVES SO I UNDERSTAND THERE CAN BE ISSUES FROM TIME TO TIME BUT I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THE CLEANLINESS OF THE PLACE THIS TIME. HAVING SAID THAT WE LOVE JESSICAS COTTAGE AND WILL HOPE TO RETURN FOR ANOTHER LOVELY HOLIDAY IN THE FUTURE. HEATHER ACORNLEY

  • "The cottage is in an idyllic location with a stunning private garden… perfect for us."

    However, some of the facilities are a bit tired: the fire refused to light after several attempts so we gave up; there’s no clear instruction about the oven;& the shower is very low power,& refused to re-position its head, so you need to stand directly underneath it, very close to the end of the bath- not ideal. An extra lamp in the sitting room wouldn’t go amiss either… it can be very gloomy in the tv corner. None of this will stop us returning though-just pointing them out for information.

  • "Lovely location and nice setting."

    Unfortunately the fire wasn't working which, someone was sent out but wasn't resolved. Also the cottages next door, number 4 and 5 were getting renovations done. So throughout the stay there was loud constant drilling to the adjoining walls. Unfortunately this was so annoying that we left early. We should of been informed before arrival that work was going on so we could of moved the dates for a later date.

  • "We enjoyed our stay and would make a return visit."

    A few hiccups the glass on the oven shattered when using it on first evening something thar can’t be helped was sorted the following day. However person who fixed it didn’t carry out full checks to make sure everything was working failed to switch the switch on that controlled the hob again effecting our evening meal. Also full checks were not carried out prior to our arrival as bathroom light not working had a shower in the dark first evening. Again sorted following day.Despite these niggles we enjoyed our stay in a good locationAs the weather was nice we were able to enjoy the lovely garden. If I am to be really nit picky some of the furnishings tired and in need of replacing however cottage comfortable and we will make a return visit

Cosy up on chilly evenings, dine-in in the stylish country kitchen, or make the most of your lovely garden & patio.

Wander straight onto the nearby fell to admire breathtaking lake views from the summit, or stroll down the lane to Bowness, for a shop, a lake cruise or a special evening out.

Private parking for two cars.

Traditional slate-floored entrance porch leading into the hall, with plenty of space for walking gear.

Well-equipped kitchen / dining room with pretty cottage windows.

The cosy lounge is calming & bright, with a gas flame fire for ease.

Upstairs to the two pretty bedrooms, one double and one single, both with lovely outlooks.

The house bathroom is perfect for a long soak with shower over bath.

The garden has a furnished patio, small lawn and outhouse - ideal for storing bikes.

Explore the delights of Bowness, alive with sophisticated shopping, popular Lake District family attractions and endless choice for an evening out.

Or, leave the crowds behind and walk straight onto the fell from your door to admire Lake Windermere from afar.

Stroll down to the lake shore, where hire boats come and go, and you can catch a Windermere Lake Cruises steamer to Ambleside or Lakeside - a scenic way to explore without taking your car.

Couples might enjoy a romantic evening cruise on Lake Windermere, and young families enjoy fun attractions such as mini golf on the 'Glebe', a miniature steam train, the Lakes Aquarium, and open top Lake District bus tours departing.
