  • "A very pleasant stay an issue we had with the hot water and heating was resolved the same day I raised it."

    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

  • "I had a wonderful time."

    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.
