  • "The Sunflower exceeded our expectations - it was extremely clean, well maintained and perfectly kitted out with everything that we needed for our stay."

    The apartment is very well located between Windermere and Bowness and with a bus stop at the end of the road for easy trips elsewhere. Thank you for providing the perfect base for our trip, we will return!

    So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully see you again soon. Property Owner

  • "What more can be said about this accomodation."

    Spotlessly clean, smelt amazing and facilities great, especially the dressing room which was excellent and so useful. We had good weather so had use of the patio (cushions for the outdoor chairs would be appreciated but I do suffer joint pain). It is situated between bowness and windemere so ideal location. Loved the boat cruises, one to ambleside and a lake cruise. We also visited grasmere on open top bus...loved it great views. First time in the lakes and would love to return. Thank you for a lovely stay and the beautiful welcome pack.

    Thank you for that brilliant feedback much appreciated. So glad you enjoyed your first trip to The Lakes. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful house, tasteful decoration and furniture."

    Excellent position for Windermere and Bowness. Only tiny thing, could probably do with a few more tea/coffee cups! (Small thing).

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay. We’ll get some more cups - can’t be short of tea! Property Owner

  • "Really lovely stay, comfy and cosy in a great location."

    We were lucky no one was in the flat above most of the week - when people moved in up there towards the end of our stay it was very noisy. Parking was ok on street but imagine in peak season it is quite difficult. Overall the accommodation was lovely, well equipped, comfortable bed and very clean. Would definitely return/recommend.

  • "One of the best holiday properties we have stayed at and we have stayed at many!"

    The furnishings feel luxurious. The bed is very comfortable and the dressing room is a real bonus for storing luggage etc. The flat is very quiet, although the flat above us was unoccupied during our stay so we benefited from having no noise from above. We found parking was available on the street outside the property most days. We only had to park on the adjacent street on one occasion and it’s literally around the corner so don’t let the lack of dedicated parking put you off. There were one or two additional bits that would have been handy in the kitchen e.g. some extra plates and cups, but generally it was well equipped. There were no instructions on what do with the bin/recycling so we took our recycling home with us. A chap popped round to put the bin out on the Thursday afternoon which did give us a slight fright when he appeared in the garden, but it explains why there were no instructions for the bin! :) Overall, a really lovely property. We would happily stay again and highly recommend it to others.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. We’ll add some information about the bins to the welcome back. Property Owner

  • "Everything about the accommodation was really good, no complaints at all and we really enjoyed the stay."

    The cottage was in a great spot, nice and quiet off the main road but close to both Windermere and Bowness. Parking on the street was the only thing that I wasn’t too keen on but had no problem finding a space

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Property was very comfortable and well appointed."

    The kitchen was well stocked with utensils of excellent quality. The lounge area comfortable and large enough for two people. Bed very comfortable and warm. We were able to adjust the central heating with very little effort. Only criticism was that smart TV's were difficult to operate as we were only able to get live television on BBC and ITV channels. (but that may be down to our lack of expertise).

    Thank you for your kind feedback, glad you enjoyed your stay. We have now connected an aerial in the lounge so you can watch terrestrial television traditionally. The lounge, bedroom and dressing room area all have smart TV connection too for Netflix, Prime, iPlayer etc. We have added a brief guide to the smart TV in the welcome pack too. Hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "We had a great relaxing stay."

    The welcome pack was a nice surprise. The place is a great location to Windermere and not to far from other locations. The only negative experience we had was there was a lot of noise from tenants above late a night for a few nights which caused disruption to sleep due to them walking in and out and walking around there place which can be heard through the floor boards. Other than that this was a great stay and would recommend

    Place.was ideal for us and our dog and was well equipped, ideally located and tastefully decorated. Was easy to come back after a busy day and kick back and relax in. Would recommend to anyone wanting to stay in and around Windermere.

    Thank you for lovely feedback. Really happy you liked the decor. Glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Property was very well furnished and excellent for two people and a dog."

    Loved the welcome pack which was a nice surprise. The bathroom could use a toilet brush and small bin to make it perfect. Could also use a cafetière in the kitchen as some like to use ground coffee. Had some issue with the Wi-Fi buffering but I think that’s a local service issue. Will look to stay again one day and will certainly recommend to others.

    Thank you for you kind comments, it's our first season so it's gratefully received. Thanks also for the recommendations we will provide those suggested items straight away. I hope the fibre line being installed the week of your stay improves the wifi too. Glad you enjoyed your stay, hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

The property

Settled at the heart of Windermere, a popular tourist destination in the Lake District lies the stunning, ground-floor apartment of The Sunflower.

With an enclosed furnished courtyard, immaculate interiors, and a superb location close to nearby amenities and the eponymous Lake Windermere, this wonderful holiday property welcomes a couple seeking a refreshing, self-catered escape in the beautiful county of Cumbria.

Park up roadside next to your new abode, and step inside to discover a collection of well-appointed living spaces.

An open-plan living area comprising a fully-equipped kitchen invites you and your loved one to whip up a delicious, home-cooked dinner that you can savour at the breakfast bar.

Alternatively, head outside with your meals and a glass of your favourite tipple to enjoy the ultimate alfresco experience as the sun shines overhead.

In the evening, settle down for a film marathon in the sitting area, where you can kick back and relax on the plush blue sofa as the day rolls into night.

When sleep finally calls, be sure to refresh with a rejuvenating shower before you settle down for a well-earned rest in the sumptuous king-size bedroom.

If you can tear yourself from your peaceful new lodgings, head out on foot to discover what your local area has to offer.

A brief stroll will bring you to Heathwaite’s convenience store, where you can stock up on essentials, whilst a hearty pub lunch can be had at the Brookside Inn.

In town, you’ll find a range of things to do and see, whether that’s snapping shots of The Baddeley Clock Tower, enjoying exhibits at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, or coasting along the crisp waters of Lake Windermere with the Windermere Jetty Museum.

Further afield, head by car along the Lake to Ambleside, a lakeside setting housing the noteworthy attractions the Ambleside Roman Fort, the outstanding Stagshaw Gardens, as well as the breathtaking Stock Ghyll Force waterfall.

Whatever you get up to during your next stay in Cumbria, do it from the base of The Sunflower.
