  • "An excellent property, in an ideal location."

    Close enough to walk into Bowness, ideal centrally for accessing the Lakes in generral. The access to the kayack was a complete bonus and something to certainly take dvantage of and use. Would definitely book again!!

  • "Good points Property is in a great location right on the lake."

    Good taxi services to and from towns. Key areas of interest all reachable Hot tub clean although can’t view the lake when in it. Bad points No welcome pack, milk or teabags bread etc. Living room area is not very cosy as just has 2 separate chairs to sit on, no sofa. Wasn’t made clear that there is an apartment above so noise can be an issue. Lots of people driving in and out the property in the early mornings (cleaners and hot tub checks etc) so not very peaceful some mornings.

  • "Rubbish access to the property, had to shunt our vehicle several times to park in the allocated parking space, we was in a lower apartment, and had 2 lots of couples above, very noisy, could here every footstep, and for some reason the second couple that arrived on the Sunday evening, decided to rearrange the furniture by dragging it."

    Went on for ages then they went out and came back later and carried on with moving the furniture. We live in a detached property, and so not used to having to deal with that. If we had not have had a drink we would have come home earlier.

  • "A spotless cottage and fabulous hot tub with a good view of Windermere."

    Remember access gained by the door tucked around the right hand side Lovely bedroom and en-suite all modern but lacked a cosy feel in the main living area. A few elements that I would expect for a 5 rating cottage require addressing Smart tv’s not very smart when not connected to the Wi-Fi due to incorrect Wi-Fi information but was soon sorted out. Quooker tap do not work but kettle was provided Lights to the hot tub requires sorting, on a evening please watch the last step it is not well lit, when you go onto the Hot tub level. Electric gates at the top became a challenge to open in windy weather we had to get help to hold the gates open (a known problem that requires sorting) No welcome pack of goodies in the cottage, not even a pint of milk. It is the first cottage we have had that did not provide this and we have multiple cottage throughout the uk The service from Lake Cottage holidays was outstanding the call the following day of arrival to check everything was ok was a surprise I wish other cottage companies would do the same.

  • "Absolutely fantastic apartment and location."

    The only criticism would b that it wasn’t made clear when choosing the property that there is an apartment above. That said, I would stay again.

  • "Lower Lake View was amazing."

    The property is finished to a high spec and is spotless. Great views of the lake and the Hot Tub was a real luxury. The customer service from Sykes was great from start to finish, all the staff lovely from key collection to drop off, checking in to makes sure everything was ok. Special mention to the cleaner who was super friendly and does a fantastic job! Definitely recommend a stay here and will hopefully be going back again!

  • "Apologies for not reviewing this superb property sooner!"

    A little difficult to find from the road if arriving after dark. But once found, all will be forgiven! Adequate secure parking, with electric charging points if required. Excellent underfloor heating, an important aspect if staying in winter as we did. Spotlessly cleaned by 2 very pleasant young ladies we met during our stay. Kitted out with anything and everything you could possibly require for a comfortable stay. Lovely jacuzzi maintained on a daily basis. Though only the 2 of us, we enjoyed a fine New Year celebration and a wonderful week. Returning soon!

  • "Overall, after trying to get through the storm the property was perfect."

    The only thing I will say is there was no back up for a powercut, electric blinds meant no visibility inside and electric gates meant no access by car, a problem with a lot of luggage. But had the storm no have hit these wouldn’t be issues. Fantastic property overall. Met the cleaners as well who were lovely!

  • "Even though it stated a ground floor apartment, we were unaware that there was accommodation above us."

    If we had realised this, we would have selected another property. As a result of this, we experienced noise from the people above us that was intrusive on more than one occasion. We contacted Sykes to make them aware. As the holiday was about rest for us, we found, on a daily basis, that various workmen were on-site with loud machinery.

  • "The privacy of the hot tub and the stunning views of lake Windermere."

    Property finished to a very high standard and very hi tech. Cutlery in the secret draw which caught us out. But its just above the plates and cups draw which you pull out. Loved every minute of our stay, very relaxing. Spa bath and shower excellent, as was curved TVs both smart TVs. The Samsung tablet was handy for checking places out and taxis. Highly recommended. Staff who were around every day were fantastic. Hot tub was checked every day.

  • "Amazing appartment and location."

    !! Drove past a couple of time before we found it . Would be tricky in the dark. A neighbour with a similar kitchen helped find the secret cutlery drawer. ! Loved the 1 way floor to ceiling glass view. Hot weather so the hot tub in the cooler evenings a delight. Pity you can't quite see the lake from it but guess that's a privacy trade off .. Also enjoyed the en suite Jacuzzi. .A DVD player would be a bonus especially in winter. We really loved our stay and would return. Definate 5* experience.

  • "Due to strict measures in leaving the country, me and my husband chose the Lake District as our Minimoon for some us time after a very stressful month wedding prepping."

    After searching for hours for the perfect cottage in Windermere, non of the others came close to the Lower Lake View. I had my eyes set on this throughout my whole search. The only thing that would have set us back would be the price as it was a lot more than the others we saw. However, I am so so SO glad we picked this one! You 100% get what you pay for and this cottage was by far my favourite get away. Everything about it was so beautiful! The fact that it was in a little secluded area which required the keys to get through the gates, the private parking, the facilities inside the cottage such as utility room, fully loaded kitchen, two bathrooms, two smart TV’s - my list could go on! It has everything included which is listed in the accommodation details so is literally what it says on the packet. BUT, the one thing it did not mention, is the absolutely beautiful sunset view of the lake we watched every night from the hot tub on the terrace of our cottage. It truly was a dream. This cottage exceeded our expectations by far and made our wind down time for our minimoon a beautiful one. The customer service was absolutely spot on, the staff at the office made our key collection quick and easy, they had given us a courtesy call after our first night to check up on us, the caretaker was so sweet and bubbly when speaking to us at the end of our stay about how it was and even the cleaner of the hot tub we bumped into was lovely! I could not recommend the Lower Lake View enough and will definitely be coming back!!!!!

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    The apartment is very modern and was very clean. We loved sitting at the breakfast bar looking at the view of the lake and trees in the morning. It is very spacious for a couple. Every appliance for cooking was available, was very well equipped. The hot tub is really good. We loved going up there and relaxing, again taking in the views. We would love to stay here again and would recommend for anybody wanting a stay with a little bit of luxury.

    Tgere was some sort of power cut the previous night where the tv, dishwasher, internet and other things went off. The following morning I got in the shower and waited and waited for it to warm but it never did. I did also try the tap at the sink but again no hot water.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear there was a power cut. The local office is available for any issues should they arise again. Property Owner

    Would have been better if we were told about the construction work that was going on beforehand. Furthermore there were cigarette buts and champagne cages littered down the side of the hot tub which was disappointing to see especially considering how clean the rest of the cottage was!

    The place was immaculately clean and finished to a high standard. There was a lack of sugar so something to bear in mind.
