Perfect Easter weekend stay
The cottage was perfect for our stay.. clean and well equipped. It is situated in an ideal location and the owners are very helpful as they know all the peaks and fells very well. This was a great help to us as we were new to the area. The rooms are comfy and more than adequate for a great self catering stay at the Lakes. Will definitely be staying again.
Thank you for great review.
Hope to see you again.
Great central location, lovely clean and homely cottage with parking outside your front door
We would happily stay here again, plenty of room for a couple. Very homely and clean. Well equipped kitchen. Great location near beautiful Bowness.
Nicely compact n easy access to bowness
Clean, tidy, ideal for two people, everything available for the stay including tea towel's..... very quiet, good location. Menus and leaflets for things to do in area in a folder.
Cosy and comfortable Cottage
Squirrel Bank is a cosy and comfortable cottage. The owners provided a very warm welcome and plenty of local information to help get around the area. The cottage was nicely decorated and well furnished for an enjoyable stay. The access to wifi was appreciated. The small garden for use at the rear of the cottage was a nice place to relax in the late afternoon. It was useful that the cottage was in walking distance of Bowness-on-Windermere.
This review is much appreciated.
We endeavor to keep the cottage well maintained and comfortable for our guests to enjoy. Thank you for your constructive comments and for leaving it in a very tidy manner.

Lovely relaxing break
Sue & Dave obviously take great pride in this beautiful little cottage. The attention to detail was second to none. Sue made us feel extremely welcome upon our arrival & we were then left to enjoy our time together. They were both on hand should we have needed them. We were lucky to have good weather & made use of the BBQ on the premises on our first night. The cottage is all on one level which was great for me being 30 weeks pregnant. The cottage has everything you need as a home from home place to stay. You can literally turn up with your own personal clothes & toiletries and food and everything else is catered for. Bowness-on-Windermere is only a few minutes in a car and around a 15 minute walk away, so the cottage is nice & central. Overall a lovely relaxing break for us. We wouldnt hesitate in recommending to friends & family.
Five star stay
The cottage is well furnished and kept in immaculate condition . Nice ten minute walk from bowness and also close to the ferry to Hawkshead. Highly recommend this cottage .
Sue and Dave's knowledge of the Lake District is extensive and they will advise on fell walking, touring or just browsing in this beautiful corner of England.
We are sorry but we do not take dogs.
There are numerous activities for all ages. Go to website and click on gallery or Lake District Tourism online
