    The bungalow is situated between Bowness and Windermere, both within easy walking distance. There were numerous cafes and restaurants to chose from and we found the people very friendly. So central for travelling round the Lake District, but we didn’t use the car very much, as everything we needed was right on the doorstep. When we come back to the Lake District, there is only one place we would chose to stay.

    it contained everything, we needed, which made our holiday brilliant and worthwhile. It was so clean and tidy that we felt obliged to leave it as we found it. My father is in a wheelchair so the double doors worked well for him. Please give the owners a great big thank you for extending the checking out time. The Sun room was a wonderful place to sit in the day time, the beds were really comfortable, the lounge was great to relax in, the garden provided us with a peaceful place to sit in the fresh air during the day and early evening and the kitchen had everything needed from pots, pans right down to a dryer. It is a fantastic place to stay and I would give it 10/10. The one and only thing to be looked at (which in my opinion is a minor) is the shower screen, which does not stop water from spilling out onto the floor as it has no seal at the bottom and with this in mind until fixed a second bath mat is needed so that when one is drying another can be used in its place. My family and I loved every moment and We will definitely be booking this cottage in the future. Thank you

With a wealth of outdoor activities and fascinating towns right from the doorstep, this is an excellent choice for a Cumbrian holiday for friends, families and couples alike.

The floral décor inside Mylnebeck Lodge brings a real sense of charm; you will first come across two immaculate bedrooms, a super king-size and a twin, which both come with Smart TVs should you want to watch your favourite films from the comfort of your bed.

Then move onto the double bedroom with an en-suite and separate sitting area, again with a Smart TV.

Next comes the well-appointed kitchen, charmingly boasting neutral décor as well as a door leading to one of two peaceful sun rooms.

This particular spot offers alternative dining furniture where you can enjoy your meals in the sunshine.

Across the hallway rests the homely living room with dining area, boasting cosy leather sofas and a Smart TV.

Just off of this welcoming layout sits a more comfortable sun room, boasting two arm chairs which make the perfect spot to sit and read a book for a quiet moment to yourself.

The utility area with separate entrance is ideal for those wet and rainy days to dry your muddy boots and wet clothing.

Appreciate this wonderful rural setting from your garden, a raised lawn area is beautifully kept with furniture for all to use.

Bowness-on-Windermere is the perfect adventure-filled holiday spot, offering everything you could ask for from an array of high-quality amenities to attractions such as the World of Beatrix Potter and boat trips from Lake Windermere to places such as Brockhole and Ambleside.
