  • "Have stayed here many times ."

    It’s now becoming a little old fashioned after looking at some other properties that have the appearance of modern decor. We found this time a few mugs and plates were chipped, these should be replaced and also a small non stick frying pan would be . We would stay again as the property has lots of good points and the location is central.

  • "Beautiful property and great location, although as it rained for our whole stay we didn't get to see the views."

    Immaculately clean, although we couldn't find a dustpan brush (which we did report). Would definitely return if we were to holiday in the Lakes again.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at this property."

    The views from the upper floor are amazing . The snug is lovely with a really comfortable sofa. The kitchen was really well equipped with plenty of crockery and cutlery. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. The property is up a steep hill so be prepared! We had the benefit of good weather so we had a really great week.

  • "The whole experience (apart from the weather) was excellent."

    Really nice house with a view that could have been improved by removing 2 trees ( only partly joking). The decor was nice and felt very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals for the family and had plastic cups etc.. for the kids. The bedrooms were light and clean and the en-suite was well looked after. Two minor points , the front door lock was extremely difficult to use, but reported this to Lakelovers at the end of our stay. Recycling was not available to this property/ area, but this wasn't explained and so we took our recycling back home with us.

  • "Very well furnished to a high standard and comfortable."

    The views were great and the location excellent for walking to Bowness/Windermere ( although we didn't like the hill on the way back !) Only small issue is that there was no way to re-cycle anything

  • "We loved staying here."

    Nice views from the upstairs living room. Well-equipped kitchen. Comfy beds and nice en-suite shower. The walk down into Bowness took 15-20 mins; it gets quite steep walking back!

  • "Peaceful setting and well maintained property"

    Mr FordhamNov 2019

  • "The property was perfect for what we needed, very accessible to walk to both local towns and a good base to explore further out."

    It was a home away from home with the furnishings being of a very high standard. I would definitely recommend this property

    Miss JarvisSep 2019

  • "This property is the highest standard we have ever had in a rental house."

    The owners taste in quality of furnishing is outstanding. The company of Lakelovers runs impeccably smooth. Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing experience

    Mr OveryJun 2019

  • "The property was in an ideal location and very welcoming to come back to after a day out walking."

    It was very well equipped, clean and comfortable.

    Mr OrmeMay 2019

  • "Enjoyed seeing such a lot of the beautiful scenery etc around Windermere and of course our accommodation was first class - We would love to visit again, but have transport (we don't drive) and shopping on more level terrain."

    thank you all for your help and kind service.
