  • "We had a lovely long weekend at Rustic Cottage,a great location for walking to restaurants/shops etc."

    A lovely warm and cosy cottage with very comfortable beds and everything we needed.My only little gripe was that I thought that there were logs supplied in the rent for the log burner for which there was 1 log!! It wasn't a problem as I went to the Booth store and bought some and the log burner worked a treat! A lovely cottage and would love to stay again maybe in the summer months.Thank you.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage, had everything we needed and the Christmas tree just totally set the scene."

    It was lovely and warm and had everything we needed for a lovely stay. The only negative we could say was barking dogs. A dog constantly barked every morning and throughout the day in the bedroom adjoining the main bedroom in our cottage as my wife isnt well with pain she has to dose sometimes throughout the day if she hasn’t slept at night but this was impossible with the continuous noise. There was also a dog at number 1 which seemed to be out in the garden early morning and left to bark and late at night. We have a dog and she can bark a couple of times if someone knocks on the door but otherwise is kept in check and certainly wouldn’t be left to bark bark. Bark continuous!!!It was disappointing and annoying and did spoil the stay unfortunately, some people don’t seem to have respect for other people.

    Hi guys thank you for your positive feedback and kind comments. We are happy that you enjoyed our cosy cottage in the centre of Bowness. We are sorry the issue of barking dogs caused a tarnish to your stay. Unfortunately this is out of our control. Normally our guests enjoy the peace and tranquility which our cottage provides. We cannot control who may be using nearby properties, sadly bad timing i suppose. Look forward to seeing you again, hopefully with the usual peace and quiet. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage clean and very well equipped,and the perfect location close to shops and restaurants but still nice and quiet."

    The only down side was the parking although a permit is provided, its on a first come first served basis and can be a long walk to the cottage when unloading luggage, and as there's no where to turn the car round you have to reverse out onto the road.I would definitely stay here again despite the parking as its a lovely cottage.

    Hi many thanks for your kind comments. We always try to make our guests stay as positive as possible. Normally we are there to obtain a parking spot when our guests arrive, unfortunately we are away at the moment. Although it’s first come first serve there is always parking literally around the corner. The central and quiet location of the property in Bowness out weighs the initial parking issue. We are happy you feel you would like to return and perhaps look forward to seeing you in the future. Property Owner

  • "Main problem was lack of parking, on arrival we had loads to unload, arriving on a Saturday when Bowness is still so busy it was not surprising to find no parking slots."

    This lead to upteem trips back & fro to off load & although the cottage well caters with lots of extras, milk would have been good, there was everything else to make a cuppa apart from milk. Great touches like torches, hoover being available, cling film, foil etc, door mat inside kitchen would have been useful Overall a lovely cottage, would not return due to parking problems (& although no fault of anyone) the low flying jets, which we experienced last year as well, they petrified our dog, which meant us walking with her off lead almost impossible).

    Many thanks for your comments. We appreciate that Permit parking is sometimes a little difficult,as you know a simple map is available in the cottage on the kitchen table. This directs guests to parking which is always available around the corner. Unloading on arrival( if no Permit parking is available) can be done at the entrance of the cottage and your vehicle can then be parked around the corner. Please note most properties in the area have the predicament. Your comment regarding supplying milk is a worthy comment and we will act on this. Property Owner

    Sorry you were disappointed with the size of our cosy cottage, please remember the property is nearly 400 years old and the interior ambience reflects this. In our opinion the stairs are no more steeper than an average household.

Very private and cosy. The cottage and garden were secure and super clean. My dog could safely explore without worry if escaping. All the little extras we kept finding tea, coffee, torches, tissues, reed diffusers to name a few showed the care and thought put in to make guests feel welcome and at home. Only downside is it only sleeps 3 as I am planning a break with my friends later in the year but we won’t all fit!! Thank you for helping to make our visit to the lakes a lovely experience

The property

This whitewashed character cottage rests in a quiet location close to the village of Bowness-on-Windermere, within the heart of the Lake District.

The cottage is the perfect choice for a couple or a small family with a child and will charm in any season, with its cosy woodburning stove for the winter months and sunny patio to enjoy in the summer.

A traditional wooden latch door brings you into the compact but well-equipped kitchen, holding everything you could need to rustle up a delicious meal for your loved ones and with a convenient dishwasher you barely have to lift a finger to wash up!

Gather at the dining table to enjoy a hearty breakfast and plan the day’s events or use this space to have a romantic meal together over a well-deserved glass of wine.

Step into the cosy lounge where you can look forward to relaxing and unwinding in the evening whilst catching up on your favourite shows or enjoying quality family time.

Upstairs you can retire in the nicely-presented double bedroom while there is a smaller single room with 4-foot double bed and pleasant views onto Claife Heights.

Completing the interior of this Bowness cottage is the family bathroom where you can recover with a soothing bath after a day of sightseeing or freshen up with a shower in the morning.

Back on the ground floor, patio doors from the lounge lead to a large enclosed south facing patio where you can sample a fine al fresco meal with a glass of wine in the evening.

The amenities of Bowness are only a short walk away, including a choice of unique shops, bars, pubs and restaurants to try if you fancy a night off cooking.

Additionally, Lake Windermere is only a short walk away and is where many water-based activities can be enjoyed such as kayaking, boat tours and cruises, or you can take the car ferry across to the ancient town of Hawskhead and explore the collection of higgledy-piggledy houses, archways, and squares beloved by William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter.

Avid walkers will be sure to enjoy the superb walking opportunities while taking in the beautiful nearby viewpoints of Post Knott and Brantfell from where views up and down the lake and even over to the coast are possible on a clear day.

If you are travelling with younger guests or literature fanatics, spend a day exploring The World of Beatrix Potter and discover the history of Peter Rabbit and friends.

Further afield, venture into the picturesque town of Ambleside, where you will find plenty more shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés to fuel your excursions; a scenic drive will take you to the magnificent Wray Castle, a National Trust property encompassed by well-kept gardens and grounds, a tranquil day out to suit all tastes.

After an action-packed day, return to Rustic Cottage for a relaxing evening with your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
