  • "Fantastic location right on the lake (the ferry traffic queues kindly opened up to let our car through when we needed to get in or out)."

    There's a lovely little balcony looking out on the water. The bed was very comfortable and the shower is good. The sofa needs to be replaced (it's pretty grubby) and ideally a 3-seat sofa put in (2 is a bit of a squeeze on a rainy day when you're both stuck indoors). The rug is absolutely filthy and should be replaced urgently. Apart from these dirty items the cottage was cosy and we enjoyed our few days there.

  • "Lovely apartment and great peaceful location - perfect for the two of us."

    Beautifully decorated, bringing the outside colours in. Welcome hamper and toiletries a nice touch. Some equipment in the kitchen could have been cleaner. Surprised and disappointed there was nowhere to recycle items - we took ours home! Could the local council be approached to repaint the “keep clear” sign outside the parking bays?

  • "Property was excellent and did not disappoint from description."

    Excellent location. Only slight irritation was that on returning to apartment on two occasions we got stuck in the queue for the Bowness ferry before being able to park. Also although there is a space marked keep clear for residents this was not always adhered to by the public. Not really sure what you can do about this though. However excellent holiday otherwise.

  • "We had a super holiday at Macan."

    The accommodation was in a perfect location and immaculate. The accommodation was very well equipped and we had everything we needed. The welcome pack was a lovely touch.

  • "This was our 2nd stay at The Macan: we loved it that much!"

    This stay was better because the weather was perfect (stayed in December last year). A very relaxing stay after a stressful year. Well positioned for lovely local walks and to catch the ferry to Bowness for drinks and a meal. Great base to explore the southern lakes. Only problem we had was the bedroom blind is broken so couldn’t pull right up or right down: stuck two thirds down. Glad I took my eye mask. And when you want to take your car out, keep an eye on the ferry queue.....

  • "Lovely relaxing situation."

    Handy for ferry across lake and Hawkshead/Coniston direction as well. Recommend purchasing a book of ferry tickets in advance.

  • "It was great!"

    (Apart from the weather.) Ideal for two adults and a dog looking for a great location for a peaceful walking holiday in the lakes. Will be looking to re-book. Small suggestion would be to put a corner soap basket in the shower to put shampoo/conditioners in, so you don't need to bend down. Would be safer.

  • "Great location."

    Difficult to get the car out of the parking space when other vehicles are waiting in line for the ferry. Can opener does not work. Electric kettle and one saucepan should be changed. We could not find the manual to operate the heating. No extra blanket could be found. We were there during cold nights. The cottage is in a wonderful location. We greatly appreciate the welcome basket full of local goodies. All and all Macan is highly recommended.

  • "The property was ideal for 2, fully equipped, Nice and quiet, apart from the regular morning smoke alarm from a neighbour , who I guess liked their toast burnt ."

    Ideal location for what we wanted, it might be a bit of a nuisance during a busy time of year, for getting back into parking space as road markings to advise drivers to keep entrance clear were almost invisible, to the drivers queueing for the ferry. Enjoyed the holiday, though that had been moved from our original May date. Would go back again. Ps the can opener is getting worn, and not easy to reach to open bathroom windows.

  • "A few more kitchen items would have been helpful eg cutlery, glasses."

    We were delighted with the holiday and booked again for next year despite the fact that the cost for exactly the same week has risen by 25% which is excessive!

  • "Great holiday location on the quiet side of Windermere Macan is a very nice apartment perfect for a couple really comfortable I couldn’t fault it and it was immaculately clean."

    The only negative is the queuing traffic for the ferry often blocked our car in but it didn’t bother us too much as we were there to kayak and walk. I’d recommend this lovely holiday home if you want quiet and are happy with local facilities being a ferry ride away We had a lovely holiday.

  • "We had seven glorious days in this lovely property."

    The views across Windermere were amazing. We cannot fault this property especially for the comfort and cleanliness. Many thoughtful touches like a welcome basket full of quality items together with bathroom luxuries. The property is a perfect base for exploring and so convenient for the ferry which was only yards away. We will definitely be returning to such a gem.
