    The location of Nutkins was really good - right in the centre of Bowness-on-windermere near restaurants, cafes and shops. This did however mean more traffic noise and we had restaurant workers making noise in the early mornings when they got home from work (from 1-3am which was really quite annoying). The apartment itself wasn’t as clean as I would expect...hair on bed and couch etc. The floor boards creeked throughout this entire apartment. Another annoyance was that the windows at the front did not open, so it was quite hot in the afternoons and there was no fan provided. It would have been nice if little things were provided such as hand soap and dishwashing liquid - we did not think to bring those things and it was a pain to have to go out and buy them. Overall we had a pleasant stay, but it definitely could have been better.
