  • "Had a lovely time."

    House amazing and very close to restaurants, pubs and shops. Thanks for having us.

  • "Another wonderful stay!"

    This is our second visit and won't be our last. We love how the owners recognise that a cottage can be super dog friendly but still high end for humans. Like others, we wash the crockery before use and this time I needed to rinse dog hairs (not ours) out of the bath so it would be great if the cleaners could check these things between guests. Plenty of on street parking immediately outside, enclosed patio is secure for dogs and a wonderful sun trap (even in early March!)

  • "Cleanliness of the cutlery plates and glasses was poor w had to re wash all of them."

    general maintenance of the property poor damp patches on wall. After leaving the property we were accused of scuffing the walls which were already scuffed this put a downer on the return of our holiday.

  • "We had an absolutely amazing stay here for the week."

    The house is beautiful and clean with everything you could need. The beds are so comfortable, something I always struggle with when going away. The large roomy kitchen was great and the cosy living room was lovely after a chilly day on the fells. We definitely hope to return.

  • "Absolutely fantastic property."

    Everything you could need including comfy beds, well appointed sitting room and kitchen. Felt like home immediately and the location between Windermere and Bowness gives you great shopping, eating and vistas all within walking distance. Very quiet location with easy parking. Highly recommended and next time we visit The Lakes we’ll definitely stay here again.

    Perfect for our family. Great location close enough to amenities but nice and quiet. Will definitely book again in future

  • "The property was gorgeous!"

    Plenty of room with a lovely outside area and most importantly very comfy beds! The only downside was the one bathroom, we didn’t realise how much frustration this would cause when booking, but one toilet when 6 people are trying to get ready in the morning was difficult. Other than that a lovely weekend with family in a great location.

    Thank you for your comments, we are so pleased to hear that you found your stay at the property enjoyable. We take all comments on board. We hope to welcome you back. The Lakelovers Owners Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Absolutely loved this cottage."

    We've stayed in numerous cottages in both Bowness and Windermere and this was one of the best. Great location, facilities and super comfortable for the two of us and pooches. There were some significant cleanliness issues upon arrival but we reported these to Sykes immediately and overall, it didn't affect our stay. We'll definitely be back.

    Thank you so much for these comments. We are so sorry that you had some issues at the start of your stay but we are glad that you still had a wonderful time Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!"

    The property was finished to a very high standard with three good sized bedrooms, kitchen/dining room and cosy lounge area. The under floor heating was an added bonus (didn’t realise the property had this until we got there), making life a lot easier when coming in from the wet and cold. The kitchen was well equipped including added extras such as an ironing board, radio, washing machine and tumble dryer plus a variety walking books to help decide where to go. The property is in a great location too with Windermere just 5 minutes walk away and Bowless only 15 mins walk. Both offering a nice selection of restaurants. This was our first visit to the Lake District, with lots of lovely walks for us and the dog to enjoy, and definitely won’t be our last. Thanks again for a lovely property. Apologies for the late review.

    We had a fabulous few days staying there with our kids - everyone loved it. The house is well equipped and very clean and tidy. Everyone commented on how comfy the beds are!! The only minor thing that I thought could be improved is that it would be nice to have a welcome pack of essentials. And some instructions for the induction hob as I struggled to get it to work!!!

Enjoying a superb and peaceful location within the Lake District National Park and just paces away from the famous Lake Windermere, 2 Alexandra Road is a fabulous choice for a group or family of six.

Free on-street parking will greet you on arrival, where you can unload your bags with ease before stepping into your new holiday home.

Look forward to whipping up culinary delights in the well-equipped and contemporary kitchen/diner, featuring a large island, granite worktops and all the integrated appliances you could need, ready to enjoy at the dining table for six over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

On warmer evening’s why not take advantage and dine alfresco out on your private patio?

As the evening draws in, head through to the sitting room where you can snuggle up on the large corner sofa and select a much-loved film on the Smart TV as the evening’s entertainment.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you will find a high-quality bathroom, featuring a beautiful freestanding bath for those indulgent soaks, as well as a walk-in shower for refreshing rinses.
