  • "Excellent apartment, location to Windermere and Bowness perfect, and great base for exploring the rest of the lakes."

    Apartment is high quality and well equipped. Our only suggestion would be to improve the TV availability as there is no terrestrial access, where it seems a cheap cost cutting measure to avoid a licence at odds with the overall quality of the apartment

  • "We had to get the agent out to let us in on arrival - the plate on the front of the lock means the key does not fit."

    And we had no hot water on two mornings - fault with boiler. Again the agent came out on the day in the middle of our stay but it went wrong again on our last day. This is not what I was expecting from an expensive rental. I understand the issues need to be taken up with the owner so I hope this will be forwarded.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear of the issues that you experienced during your stay but we are glad to hear that we were able to help resolve. Thank you- The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

    Absolutely the highest grade accommodation we have ever stayed in, with everything you need. Perfect location close to Windemere centre, but so very quiet and comfortable. Felt privileged to stay and wished we had booked more time; already looking at coming back.

    Thanks so much for your feedback and we are so pleased you like the property. Of course we would love to have you back. Thank you again and our own best wishes. Property Owner

Step into the apartment, where you will be greeted by a monochrome Victorian-style bathroom on the left, where you can look forward to enjoying a blissful soak in the bath or a revitalising shower under the twin heads, including a monsoon shower head.

Continue down the hallway where you will discover two beautifully-presented bedrooms, a super-king-size (zip/link) and a king-size with en-suite shower room, both perfect for catching a restful night.

At the end of the hallway, you will reach the generous open-plan living space, where you can snuggle up on the plush sofa in front of your favourite series on the Smart TV.

Conjure up a delicious feast in the amply-equipped kitchen, with four ring induction hobs, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine, before settling down around the dining table to discuss plans for the days ahead.

Awaken and prepare for the day in style, before setting out to wander the extensive communal gardens.
