  • "We were entirely delighted and charmed with this holiday home."

    We have already booked to return.

    Reviewed by Catherine4.7Mar 2024

  • "Great place and the views are amazing - daily changing landscape with the weather."

    Had it not rained most days we’d have definitely made good use of the balcony. Excellent location for everything in Bowness and the house is very well equipped with everything you might need.

  • "WIFI was unavailable for the first couple of days and bath plug did not retain water in the bath."

    The steps down to the car parking area where very slippy. Not an issue but more of a concern.

    Reviewed by Roger4.4Sep 2023

  • "The property was immaculate and very comfortable."

    The location is stunning, to look at the view from the balcony or the lounge area was a privilege. We will definitely look to rebook in the near future.

  • "Absolutely lovey accommodation, fitted with high-end furniture and fittings as well as delightful artwork."

    More than adequate space throughout the house and parking for 2 cars. The location is perfect to walk into Bowness to get groceries, food and see the location attractions. Highly recommended, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will hopefully be back some time in the future.
