    “Having stayed in Beech How Cottage in March 2017 I was surprised at how 'tired' the property has become in the intervening 18 months - similar comments have been left by others in the Visitors Comments book.”

    The two single beds in the downstairs bedroom creek and groan at the slightest movement and the headboards do not fit the beds so that just turning over in bed at night means the headboards crack against the wall, even when the beds are moved away from the wall. There were cobwebs everywhere and dust accumulating underneath furniture and behind doors. I did not intentionally go looking for this, but when you are looking for something you've misplaced you get to see into the corners! I have ...

    The two single beds in the downstairs bedroom creek and groan at the slightest movement and the headboards do not fit the beds so that just turning over in bed at night means the headboards crack against the wall, even when the beds are moved away from the wall. There were cobwebs everywhere and dust accumulating underneath furniture and behind doors. I did not intentionally go looking for this, but when you are looking for something you've misplaced you get to see into the corners! I have already mentioned the broken shower and the lack of clothes hangers and these problems were resolved impressively quickly by yourselves. Thank you. The staining in the downstairs bath is an utter disgrace, but as this was the bath with the only shower, and as I have a disability which prevents me from bathing, I had to step in to this bath to use the shower. As I have already suggested, if the owners are aware of this problem, and if they are going to have to have the bath removed, then maybe they could have a proper walk in shower installed instead for those guests who are unable to bath or find difficulty stepping into and out of a bath to take a shower. The house is in a delightful position, with amazing views and a wonderful array of garden birds. However, having a sloping driveway, covered in wet and slippery leaves, it makes walking to the front door very treacherous. I do not know if there is a regular gardener, but at this time of year the whole area could do with regular leaf clearing. When leaving a property we always clear up and clean around - unfortunately the leaves blown in through the front door, and carried in our shoes onto the inside mat were stuck and impossible to remove as there was no vacuum cleaner. We swept through the rest of the house, but could not budge the leaves.

The property

Located two miles from Bowness this semi detached property has an enviable location on the shores of Lake Windermere.

Extensive gardens lead down to your own lake frontage with stunning views of the lake and distant fells from almost every room.

The front hallway leads to the very well equipped kitchen/dining room where you can enjoy family meals whilst drinking in the fantastic views. Next is a lovely downstairs double bedroom with adjacent family bathroom with shower over bath and w.c.

Making this an excellent choice for those with limited mobility. Upstairs is the cosy sitting room with dual aspect windows where you can watch the passing sailing boats and lake cruisers. One twin and one double bedroom, both with Lake and mountain views together with another family bathroom with w.c.

Outside there is a large garden with a woodland pathway running down steeply to the Lake shore.

A balcony area with table and chairs at the rear of the property is ideal for enjoying the views whilst enjoying an al fresco meal.  A large parking area provides parking for several cars.

Bowness with its plentiful pubs, restaurants and shops is only two miles away and the Beech Hill hotel is nearby providing a restaurant and bar.

To the South is fell foot park and for the more energetic, Gummers How for spectacular lake views.  The Lakeside and Haverthwaite steam railway, Lakeside Aquarium and Lakeland Motor museum are all just a short drive away the bottom of the lake.

A perfect hideaway for those who would love their own oasis on the lake, with easy access to Bowness and the wonderful Lake District beyond.
