  • "Lovely little cottage with everything you need"

    Reviewed by JoanApr 2022

  • "One of the nicest cottages I’ve stayed in."

    The cottage itself was well equipped, everything you would need was there. Comfortable bed, very hard to get out of. If it was my home I wouldn’t change a thing. The cottage is situated not far from the lake. Perfect in every way. Just be aware it gets busy at the weekend so parking outside might be difficult but there are lots of places just a short walk away. Thank you Keith and Family for a memorable stay.

    Thanks for your lovely comments Anne. Really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Looking forward to getting there ourselves in a few weeks. Keith and Suzanne Property Owner

  • "Our first time in bowness on Windermere and Nutkin cottage and can honestly say they both far exceeded expectations!"

    From the moment we walked through the door of the cottage into the first of two cosy snugs the cottage forced us to relax! It was simply perfect in every way! Every home comfort is there and the attention to detail, we didn’t have to go hunting to find anything in the cottage, everything was just where it should be. Super comfortable beds, bathroom was lovely with freestanding bath and an amazing shower! Kitchen had everything we could have needed or wanted. The most perfect of cottages, literally at the end of the small terrace is the Main Street but you would never know as the cottage was so quiet and peaceful. The perfect stay! Would highly recommend Nutkin Cotttage! We will be back

    Aw thanks for your lovely feedback Alison. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Bowness is a fab place and we love the cottage. Keith and Suzanne Property Owner

  • "Nice little cottage clean and well presented."

    Only real criticism is lack of recycling bin - we took all ours home. Bed is a little on small size and not the most comfortable.

  • "Nutkin Cottage is home from home."

    It oozes character and provided a cosy stay for our family of 4 including our dog. It has everything you need in a perfect location. We will be back!

  • "Had a lovely 3 night stay."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and really warm. Great location. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Lovely cottage close to the centre of Bowness, with restaurants at the end of the road 50 yards away."

    In addition to the front room, the back (dining) room can also be used for relaxing with cosy armchairs by the wood burning stove. Nicely decorated and you'll have a lovely stay. You just have to be quick with the parking, which is by permit. You might have to park on a different road at first until you can snag a space on the right road.

  • "Bit surprised the soap dispensers provided were empty."

    We bought more liquid soap and some other cleaning products, as there were empty bottles left in the bathroom. Apart from that and the occasionally troublesome parking space hunt, we were happy with our stay.

  • "Lovely cottage!"

    Beautifully decorated! Had everything we needed. Had a really lovely holiday and would stay again. However it was disappointing that there is no provided recycling at the cottage. Have to take it all up to the supermarket in windermere and they don't recycle tins/cans or glass so ended up taking a big bag of recycling home with us at the end of the holiday! Duvet and pillows on the bed not the comfiest. Otherwise all lovely.
