  • "Lexington House is beautifully appointed, well equipped and ideally located for a short stroll into Bowness."

    Spotlessly clean, comfortable and homely, we would be happy to recommend to anyone. Great communication with Otto who was readily available and helpful. We look forward to a return visit in the near future. Ben, April and family.

  • "An amazing place to stay!"

    We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Lexington House in Bowness and it was absolutely perfect. A fantastic location for exploring the Lake District, and walking distance in to Bowness. The location couldn’t have been any better. The house itself is absolutely spotless and well equipped for families. We were a family ranging from 70s to a 16 month old and it was perfect for us all. The children especially loved toasting marshmallows on the outdoor fire. Communication was perfect from start to finish. Thanks so much again

    Very tidy, quiet and it has pretty much everything we would like to have while away from home. The beds are sooooo comfy, so we slept incredibly well. The hosts are amazing - very helpful when we asked for some advice. It’s a great location for exploring the beautiful Lake District area We would highly recommend this property.

  • "Great property, great location only a small issue was the table in the lounge was a little bit tight to get in and out we are small so was fine but could see this being an issue for other people."

    House had everything we needed and was well decorated, beds comfy too. Would definitely come back.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Lexington House, thank you for the welcome pack."

    The house was immaculate with everything provided for a party of 6. So relaxing, after arriving, the 'oldies ' in the party didn't use our car until the journey home. Younger members of the party (40 plus!) Enjoyed kayaking and tackling some of Langdale Pikes! Restaurants, pubs and shops all within walking distance from the house. Used boats, buses and walking boots to visit many picturesque villages! Thanks for a memorable holiday.

  • "The property was beautiful and whilst we didn’t use all the facilities, I imagine the outdoor patio in the summer would be a brilliant place to chill out."

    The location is spot on, close enough to everything Bowness and Windermere have to offer yet peaceful in its own right. The property was spotlessly clean and comfortable.

  • "My family and I spent a week here in this beautiful house to celebrate a special birthday, the brochure pictures do not do it justice."

    The location is perfect although there is a hill down to the town, but not too bad. The beds are super comfy with good quality bedding, great to flop into after a great day in stunning Bowness. We would most definitely recommend this property.
