  • "We found the apartment to be warm, clean and comfortable."

    We got a good nights sleep as the bed was comfortable and it was nice and quiet. The apartment was a great size for the two of us. The parking spot was essential as having on site parking is a deal breaker for us. All in all a good experience and we would definitely stay again.

  • "Pleasantly surprised when we entered the apartment."

    Everything had been considered when equipping it. The bed was comfortable, the apartment was warm and there was plenty of hot water. It was very conveniently situated in Bowness but not in a noisy area being on the outskirts of the town. A message indicating when dustbin day is would have been sensible. By the time we saw the bins in the centre it was too late. Also there was no provision for recycling . Judging by the number of bottles in the bin the chance was lost. Which is a shame.

  • "The property stunk of bleach on arrival, so bad all doors and windows had to be opened - even the inside of the fridge stunk of bleach."

    Throughout our stay there remained a damp musty smell which was on our clothing when we opened our cases back home. The air fresheners strategically placed did nothing. The sofa although it looks good is quite uncomfortable and having lifted the cushions to push them back there was a lot of debris underneath. Having said all the above, the flat is excellently placed for touring the area and is very quiet. We slept very well.

    Thank you for your feedback. We take all comments on board. We do find that sofas are down to personal preference. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "The accommodation was very comfortable."

    Kitchen is bit dark and dated but has what was needed. Bed was comfortable and bedroom has plenty of storage. Bathroom is modern and shower is good. Not too far from the lakeside so an easy walk. Plenty of cafes and restaurants within walking distance. Parking was a bit tricky the first weekend but this I think was mainly due to three cars being parked at the accommodation next door. They left on the Monday so we were able to then park in the designated space. It was good to have a parking space as the town itself was very busy and parking elsewhere was at a premium. Only slight disappointment was what had been described as a patio area with views of the garden. This was actually a small landing at the top of some steps which was barely big enough for two people and had a view of the hedge. This, however, was only a minor thing which did not spoil our holiday. Overall we had an enjoyable experience and would be happy to visit again in the future.

    We really enjoyed staying at Mosslea, the only thing stopping me from giving 5 stars is the mattress on the bed which has seen better days otherwise everything was very good

    Great customer service. The apartment suited our needs perfectly and that’s why we keep going back, WiFi would be beneficial and perhaps replenish the wine glasses there were only 2 and one had seen better days lol . We look forward to coming back next year.

  • "Our third enjoyable stay at Mosslea except for two issues."

    The door compartment in the fridge is still broken a year after our first stay. If it can't be repaired it should be removed. Secondly the pillows are "dead" no bounce only uncomfortable lumps.

  • "WE were very impressed with Mosslea, the dark wood doors were a suprise but on opening them all the rooms were bright and airy."

    The windows in the louge made it all very light and the decore in the bedroom made this very light. All the things you need for self catering were there and a perfect spot to be close enough to the village of Bowness but back enough from the road to be quiet. We will be looking to book again

  • "We stayed for a week in April and had a great time, the location is ideally situated for a short walk in to Bowness or 10/15 walk to Windermere, this opens the opportunity for train journeys around the lakes for non car users."

    There was a slight issue with the heating and hot water going off, this was raised and while we were out that day, an engineer attended the property and fixed the issue, great service. I would have no reservation in recommending this property family and friends.

  • "The first evening we arrived we phoned the emergency service to say that we had no wifi and that the kettle was not working, A gentleman phoned back to say there was no wifi at the property and that he would make sure that the kettle was replaced."

    It never was..... The apartment is a bit old-fashioned with a beige corner suite a bit big, has not got the holiday flat feel.

    Thank you for your feedback after your recent stay at Mosslea. We are sorry nobody got back to you regarding the kettle. We attended to the Kettle on the changeover and did not find any issues with it? The property isn't advertised as having WIFI either. Lastly the property does not have a beige corner suite, the sofa is blue and is a 2/3 seater which is the perfect size for the room and for up to two guests to sit comfortably. We do hope you enjoyed your holiday regardless of these issues raised. Property Owner

    The holiday home was well equipped, with all home comforts available. It was like home from home. As I went during the half term holidays, Bowness was super busy. It was impossible to eat in a restaurant locally. Super location to use as a base for walking.
