    We arrived here on Friday night - our family arrived earlier in the day and got in with no problems and were able to park in 2 bays outside. We booked this as a surprise trip for my Dad's 60th, we booked this as he loves the Lakes and what set this place apart from the beginning was although it was not 'cheap' to stay here it was much more reasonable than competitors & so much more modern. Every room is finished to the highest quality & we all found a comfortable, cosy room! We had 3 children with us & each of them were equipped for with 2 travel cots & a spare mattress for the oldest. All 3 bathrooms are gorgeous, especially the 2 en suite that our party loved. So central & around everything in Bowness, short walks either side to places of interest and lots of shops very nearby. We were able to park 3rd and 4th cars in nearby streets without permits thanks to the knowledge of John! The men inhabited the man cave for the duration of the weekend and my 5-year old nephew especially loved the touch of the Xbox with lots of games, very good touch! I don't have enough adjectives to describe how lovely this place is or how much we loved the weekend here! All I would say is that it has more to offer than is advertised: washing machine, drier, iron & board, hairdryers, towels, travel cots & wish we had known about the sofa bed earlier haha! Thanks so much to John & the holiday company - Dad had such a great birthday, we all loved it & can't wait to come back! Hoping the price still sets it apart when we come back! As my nephew said it's his new favourite house!
