  • "Lovely building tastefully done and well maintained."

    We were there when the Dickensian festival was on which was fantastic although very busy. The apartment was ideally placed as we could walk to the village in minutes without the hassle of having to park. Well worth a visit.

    Thank you for the great feedback, The Dickensian festival seems to get bigger each year. I'm sure it will be another busy one in 2024. We are so happy you had a nice stay. Mike and the team Property Owner

  • "The property we rented (and the entire complex) was delightful and we would love to return."

    The only thing that would have made it even better was a greater provision of crockery.

    I will limit my words to only say that I found it a privilege to stay in such an opulent and exclusive and comfortable property. Also, I should add that the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Great Team!

  • "What a fabulous apartment in a stunning setting!"

    Spacious, great water pressure in the showers, comfortable beds and sofa, great facilities, dining and relaxing area. The grounds are great to stroll around and the owners, Gerry & Louise, are two of the nicest people you could hope to meet. Very dog friendly and within easy walking distance of a nice sized town which has a great selection of food and drinking options. We used as a base to explore Windermere, Coniston, Ullswater and the coast at Furness, in addition to local hikes on the doorstep. A great holiday made special by a fantastic apartment and friendly people.

    It has everything you could possibly need, It feels really spacious. The outside patio area is perfect especially for our little dog, he could just go in and out of the apartment safely. The grounds are beautiful and you are in walking distance of the centre and it’s a lovely walk. We would definitely love to go back.
