  • "Plus points - spacious, comfortable beds, fab views, great location for walking into Bowness (beware the steepness of the drive)."

    Loved the balcony and the electric awning (shame the lights had no bulbs). Negatives - Overall too hot on our arrival. Unable to turn down some radiators. We also object to paying a lot of money to be expected to strip the beds ourselves at the end of our stay. Also, there was no kitchen bin liner! Turned out we had to open the cardboard box to find 3 bin liners and 2 eco friendly dishwasher tablets plus a scourer. In an area that has no recycling facilities which is disappointing in itself, it is even more disappointing to have to discard a cardboard box. It really is not necessary. I'd much prefer the bin to be lined and dishwasher tabs under the sink. The kitchen was well equipped though we're glad there was a more conventional oven as the steam ovens were way too complicated.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you found the property to be spacious and enjoyed the views! We take all comments on board. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "What a lovely house, it had everything we needed."

    The kitchen was well stocked with crockery and cooking equipment, beds were very comfortable. The view from the balcony was a bonus. Woods behind the house to take the dogs for a run. Short walk down to the town. We all enjoyed our stay and will book this property again in the near future

  • "The property has the most magnificent views of the lake."

    It was very clean and plenty of choice of cooking and crockery facilities. The property is in need of some maintenance like paths and the bathrooms could do with an update. Having said that this did not stop us from having the most amazing week at Tanna hill.

  • "A very delightful & ideally positioned house with great views."

    However Could have done with spare bedding and towels for a two week stay. Also didn't have a holiday feel inside very dated & personal belongings including photo albums left in lounge units. Also would liked to have recycled but instructions clearly said throw ALL rubbish in one bin even though recycle truck did turn up one morning. Apart from these negatives we would still highly recommend this property.

  • "What great accommodation."

    We had our doubts about the view but we needn't have worried, fabulous. The house is a short walk from Bowness and all that has to offer. A climb back up the hill to get home, but that wasn't a problem, just added to the fun. The balcony view was superb and the house was very welcoming, we felt at home right away. There isn't an enclosed garden for the dogs but that was fine for our two, they got used to the banked grassed area by the footpath. I would recommend this property to anyone, thank you so much Tanna Hill :-)

  • "The views from the property where absolutely stunning, the balcony and seating made it a lovely spot to sit out, it was clean and comfortable, the kitchen was a lovely sociable space with all equiptment you would need if you prefer to cook rather than eating out."

    Bowness is a very short walk of around 10 minutes with everything there on the doorstep it was easier walking downhill than back up ! we took a short cut through Happimag apartments bringing you right out near tourist information. There is ample parking and turning making it easier to manoeuvre off the drive. All in all a fantastic break with unrivalled views and Post Knott a short walk up.

  • "Lovely property with great views over the lake."

    The photos do not do this place justice. We arrived in the dark met by a long , fully lit up driveway, which has plenty of room for multiple cars. It's difficult to appreciate the size of this property until you're in front of it. The hallway with gallery landing above has a real wow factor upon entry. After a few minute's I was torn between thinking this house needed the decor modernising and loving the charm of it all as it was. •Kitchen was very well equipped, very clean, with good quality appliances •The living room is huge, with fantastic views of the lake, comfortable seating and a smart TV. Fully adjustable lighting and a lovely fireplace •The light on the rear patio didn't work but was rarely needed with such a fantastic frint facing balcony •The bedrooms are spacious and the beds really comfortable. The wardrobes need updating but we're functional. •We only used the downstairs shower, which was fine so cannot comment on the other two. •The property was immaculately clean and the heating set perfect for our needs, always warm after we returned from walks and days out. The only real downside to this property is also the reason for its biggest plus. Its built on a hill, above bowness, and whilst its just a 10 minute walk from the centre, it is a very steep uphill walk. We used the steps on the far side of the property, which are far easier to manage than the driveway. The views are well worth the effort though. My family really enjoyed the week and we would stay again in a heartbeat.

    Thank you for your kind and detailed feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Good location with views of the lake and beyond."

    Steep hill and drive with restricted space to turn car around. On arrival the property was cold due to the restricted CH timings. We had to continually boost the CH during our stay. Also whilst the WIFI worked in the kitchen it was unreliable in the rest of the house (not a problem with our devices). The electric shower in the upstairs bedroom is useless in cold weather. A small amount of washing up liquid/ disinfectant/ washing powder would be useful.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the views. We will pass on your comments regarding the CH and the WIFI to look into. Property Owner

  • "What a fantastic property."

    Very grand and plenty of room for a larger party of people. The dogs loved it as well, plenty room for them to play. Amazing views from the balcony and windows. A very well equipped kitchen and the showers are fantastic. If I was being ultra critical I would say the parking can be a bit tricky but it certainly wouldn’t stop me from booking again, which we hope to do for next year.

    We were very lucky and had a full week of sunny weather and we spent a lot of time on the large balcony with its views of the lake. The house is very well equipped and has everything needed nice comfy seats and beds. The patio area also has good views and has a large dining table and chairs it also has a gas barbecue, great for al fresco dining. We spent most of the week indoors only going indoors to ok and sleep and watch the euros on tv. A really stunning house and a great place to stay. The drive way is a challenge at first in a big car but you soon get used to it

  • "When we arrived at the house, the cleanliness of the kitchen was not to an acceptable standard."

    I had to scrub the outside of the kettle to remove dried on food and their was scale that had built up around the spout. (It needed a new kettle!) there was also dirty cutlery and cupboards/draws that clearly hadn't been checked and a warming draw with food debris in. There was also dog dirt on the patio area. The rest of the house, bathrooms and bedrooms was clean and the balcony had fantastic views and definitely was worth hiring the house for. We did make the owner aware of the cleanliness issue on the evening we arrived and later in the week he dropped us of a gift as an apology, however we never heard anything from Lakelovers and no one offered to come and clean the kitchen at any point. As we are in the middle of a pandemic, cleanliness has a higher priority than ever before, this was not a cheap holiday let, so we were very disappointed that we came across this issue. We were told we couldn't enter the property until 4pm due to the extra cleaning taking place but we arrived at 2pm and there was no sign of the cleaners, so it wasn't as if they ran out of time! There is also a branding issue as we booked under Lakelovers but when we tried to sign into our account we couldn't get in and were told we had to log into Sykes cottages website? This feedback email was sent by Lakelovers & yet the start of the feedback form says "Your Sykes Experience" That is really unprofessional, please sort your branding out so we as customers know who we are booking with!

    Thank you for your feedback Mrs Dickinson. Please accept our apologies, Lakelovers look after the cleaning for Tanna Hill and this matter has been reported to the Housekeeping Manager, as this falls well below our expected standards. Unfortunately on this occasion we weren't informed of the issues you have mentioned as one of the team would have attended immediately. Thank you once again for bringing this to our attention and we do hope this hasn't deterred you from staying again at Tanna Hill. Property Owner

The property

A spacious and bright property close to the lake shore and centre of lively Bowness village.

With three double bedrooms (one which can be converted into a twin room), Tanna Hill makes an ideal holiday home for a group of friends or family.

And don’t forget that two pets can come along too.

The sloping drive and outside area has parking for up to three cars.

The upside-down layout makes the most of stunning views, as do the balcony and raised patio with BBQ and ample outdoor seating.

Who can resist the joy of al-fresco dining in the summer sunshine?

Thanks to large windows facing out over the wonderful scenery, the sitting room is light and airy.

A feature fireplace, with gas fire, adds a cosy charm when the sun goes down, as do the lovely leather sofas and chairs.

When the sun is high, sliding patio doors can be opened wide onto the balcony from where the well-tended garden can be admired.

The underfloor heating is a real treat during cooler months and the modern kitchen offers extensive cooking facilities as well as more of those fabulous views.

This room has an elegant dining area with table and chairs positioned next to a large glass window.

The bedrooms offer flexible sleeping arrangements, either as three king size/doubles or two king size/double and a twin.

There are also generous bathing facilities for everyone.

Bowness is a wonderful location for families, lake-lovers, boating enthusiasts and those who just want to take life easy.

The village is alive with interesting shops, excellent restaurants and cosy pubs.

Lake Windermere is only a short stroll from Tanna Hill, and here a whole host of activities are on offer.

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