  • "What a terrific lodge!"

    Great facilities, spacious, clean with some great additional touches (such as DVDs, Prosecco & chocolates). The location is excellent and an easy walk to Windermere and Bowness. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family.

  • "We found the property to be clean, spacious,comfortable and perfect for our needs."

    It’s location between Windermere and Bowness was ideal, as were the parking facilities. The complimentary Prosecco and chocolates was a nice and welcome gesture. The only disappointment was the week passed too quickly. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for your kind comments and you would welcome back anytime. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful bungalow, spotlessly clean, very welcoming."

    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.

  • "A mention of the metal steps leading to the garden."

    Garden could do with some maintenance, not somewhere you could sit out, untidy and uneven ground. Didn’t bother us as we were out all day but a tidy up would have given this cottage ‘exceeds expectations’

    ; very comfortable and homely. It has all the necessary facilities to make a holiday enjoyable. When the sun is shining, the sun room is a brilliant place to lounge with a good book and even when it's not, it is a great place to sit and have a little time for tranquillity.. The house is in a perfect place, less then 10 minutes away from the lake and local shops. This was my second visit and as soon as I walked into the house, I was relaxed as I knew I was guaranteed a to have a lovely time. I will definitely be staying there again.

  • "The cottage was very homely and comfortable."

    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
