  • "This was a warm, inviting space which was very well equipped."

    I’d thoroughly recommend it.

  • "Arrived yesterday and we are delighted with our apartment."

    It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Couple of issues I need to mention though. Your website page and guest information book for Skylark mention a TV in the bedroom and a Bose speaker in the living room (there is a Bose remote control!) neither of which are present, it's not a problem but I think your website and the guest information book need updated.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to hear that you are enjoying your stay. We take all comments on board, and we will take a look at the information provided to see if changes need to be made. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment with quality fittings and fixtures and is a credit to the owners."

    This is the third time in the last 9 months that we have stayed here and will stay again. However, the housekeeping on this occasion has slipped. I dropped my ring under the bed and found an empty juice bottle some previous guests had thrown underneath it. When I went to put some clothes in the bedroom drawer someone had left a leg waxing kit that hadn't been removed by housekeeping. Also it was obvious that it hadn't been vacuumed on the carpeted areas very well. I reiterate this is a beautiful apartment that we plan to return to but please get the housekeeping back to a good standard. I don't want the negative feedback of this review published as to put off other people booking it but want to be honest so as to hopefully rectify.

  • "Thank you for such an exceptional stay."

    Only issue was the amount of dust on the fake plants and the tap for the bath was wobblier than jelly no matter how careful we were with it. Other than these minor inconveniences, the stay was perfect. The bed was incredible and the tv in the living room had everything you needed. Kitchen was clean and easy to use. Fully reccomend this holiday apartment!

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay. We will ask our Housekeeping Teams to ensure that our high standards continue to be met. We hope to welcome you again. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "We were really impressed by everything - location, layout, fittings, cleanliness."

    Just needed some scissors in the kitchen drawer. Also, we couldn't find the switch for the lamps above the kitchen table! (Not a problem for our visit in late June, but might be frustrating later in the year). Other than these small quibbles, the apartment couldn't really be improved upon. Highly recommended.

  • "We love this apartment so much, we stayed in December last year and had already booked for this stay in March and again for July."

    It is conveniently located for shops bars and restaurants but also with almost direct access onto the fells. We never use the car when we stay here and go walking every day. Another plus is you can park right at the door. All of the furnishings are stylish & good quality. The bathroom is spacious, modern and very well fitted out as is the kitchen, the only downside is there isn't a freezer or freezer compartment in the fridge. I only need it for ice for the G&T's

    Dear Jan,   Thank you for your wonderful comments. I am delighted to hear you love the apartment and booked to come back!   We take on board your comments for an icebox for those all important G&Ts and will consider it when the fridge needs replacing.   Look forward to welcoming you soon.

    Some of which we have at home so definitely tonour taste. We have stayed in Pereguin before and that was really good too but Skylark just pips it for us. The only thing I missed was no freezer compartment on the fridge but can live with that the stay in such a nice apartment. We have already booked to come back for a week in March then again in July.

    Would agree with previous comments, need hand soap in bathroom and kitchen, very surprised not provided given the overall standard. There are only 4 mugs, everything else there is 8 or more of which means hand washing necessary.

The Stonecliffe Apartments

The Stonecliffe Apartments consists of an impeccable selection of four apartments resting in Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria. 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. Today you can enjoy a cruise around the lake, or hire a rowing boat or kayak. 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. Across the water by Ferry to the tiny hamlet of Far Sawrey is Beatrix Potter's home, Hill Top and many lovely walks around the village of Hawkshead. 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.
