  • "Second time we have stayed at Partridge (we have stayed in all 4) - lovely apartment and can't criticize it too much but was a bit disappointed that the issue with the glass shelf in the bathroom still hasn't been resolved - lovely big smart tv but no instructions (instructions for old tv in the folder) limited space for making food luckily we only cooked breakfast and some lunches."

    Also disappointed that Lakelovers could not offer us insurance for our holiday (peace of mind) as they say they are changing their insurance. Still lovely well appointed apartments though - Skylark being our favourite

  • "Comfortable accommodation."

    Well equipped. Good location. Some coat hooks by door would be nice. Also a step to reach top shelves in kitchen. Would definitely recommend.

  • "A fabulous apartment in a great location."

    It was comfortable and well equipped. Parking space (off street) was brilliant. We could walk to all the shops, restaurants and down to the lake. A variety of eateries close by which were all good. Bowness was a great base to visit lots of beautiful places in the Lake District.

    The parking is a real necessity in a town where it can be a bit of a challenge.

  • "The shelf above the bathroom sink was dangerous."

    My husband, while washing bumped his head on it. Your man removed the shelf and put it on the window ledge. The washing machine was leaking and the floor was wet. We called out your man and he said he'd turn the water off to stop anymore water leaking. The stool in front of the dressing table was wobbly so the man took it away. Won't be back to this location.

  • "The Partridge is ideally located for all areas of interest, just a very short walk to Windermere Lakeside."

    The parking space is really good, being off-road and exclusively for the apartment. Inside, everything was clean and tidy with a really comfy bed. Small adjustments we feel would make a difference are these...the glass shelf in the shower room needs to be removed as it makes things very awkward when cleaning teeth for example. The drain cover in shower needs to be secured and the wooden stool under the dressing shelf was so loose that it could be dangerous. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. John & Cheryl 2nd to 6th July 2023

  • "Very disappointed with the level of cleanliness."

    Thick layer of dust on the black slate shelf in bathroom cobweb in bedroom beside wardrobe down the side of the canvas in the lounge and dust beside bedside cabinet nearest window. Rug in lounge needs a good clean too. The sink in the bathroom is too small and not practical. Crack in corners of wall in lounge and bedroom. It definitely needs a bit of time and attention spent on the property . Location was good. No mention of it being all on open plan in the listing . And I assume it was the owner who came into the apartment while we were there with no introduction or explanation. Not the experience I had hoped for.

    Thank you for your comments. We are sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced with the cleanliness of the property. We would like to add that had we been made aware during your stay, we would have attended to resolve the issues. We will ask our Housekeeping team to ensure that our high standards continue to be met. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Excellent accommodation in a brilliant location - so close to the centre of Bowness."

    A great variety of shops, restaurants, bars and activities are only a short walk away. The apartment itself is modern and stylish, very well equipped and very well maintained. Off-street parking at Partridge is a welcome bonus and with a regular bus service close by, the need to use the car can be kept to a minimum (which is really welcome during the busy season in the Lakes!). Have stayed at Partridge twice now and will definitely return and would recommend.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. It is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Partridge at Stonecliffe for the second time. We hope to welcome you back for a third visit. Property Owner

    No egg cups were provided. This seems to be common with a number of properties in which we have stayed. Perhaps this needs to be addressed overall. However it was an ideal location. We had a fantastic week. It suited our needs very well. Thank you.

    Dear Rosalie, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at Partridge. We are delighted to hear you had a fabulous week and found the location to be ideal. With only a small kitchen, we are limited in the extent of items we can provide, but will take your comments on board. We hope to be able to welcome back soon. Property Owner

This collection offers elegant interiors with a contemporary flair and lovely nods to the area throughout such as Herdwick wool throws and artwork, along with access to private parking and an array of the Lake District National Park's sights on their doorsteps. The building of Stonecliffe itself is a large, traditionally built residence which enjoys a prominent position in the heart of the Bowness-on-Windermere, making for an impressive getaway for couples and small families alike. Once a small fishing village, Bowness-on-Windermere grew in the 19th Century to welcome tourists and visitors mainly due its beautiful location on the shores of Lake Windermere.

The town itself has many things to do, including the World of Beatrix Potter, the Old Laundry Theatre, a small cinema and many individual shops, restaurants and bars.

Further up the Lake is the wonderful Wray Castle, now owned by the National Trust and a great family day out. All around you of course, are many walks and wanders into the fells, from idyllic strolls around Cockshott Point to moderate climbs up Claife Heights. Wherever you choose to go for your excursions, The Stonecliffe Apartments provide a sumptuous base for you to retire to each evening.
