  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely superb apartment throughout, everything you could wish for and more, one of the best places I've ever stayed in. The high class finish throughout,makes for an enjoyable and relaxing stay. The view is exceptional,it was lovely white snow when we left which makes the view even more picturesque. There is a steep hill on the way up to the apartment, but a road ,around 20 meters down, offers you a more even way through to bowness, you come right out by the angel pub, which is a plus in itself .Myself and my wife have stayed in bowness numerous times, usually in fallbarrow park in a log cabin, but I felt a lot more comfortable and private in this apartment, We are already planning our next visit in 2018, will definitely be trying our hardest to secure this superb apartment again.

Just right

  • 5 of 5

I really don't want to tell you how much we enjoy this flat, I also don't want you to know just how good the view is from the lounge window. Why?....because we want to keep this flat to ourselves.

We think it's "just right "

This was our first visit to the Lake District and this flat was perfect! We enjoyed climbing to the top of the fell behind the house every morning to visit with the sheep and enjoy the 360 degree view. The views from the flat itself were spectacular, too! We watched the sun set over Windermere each evening. We also walked from this flat to the Windermere train station on the Dales Way and took the bus back. This flat is so comfortable, and the bus stop is just at the bottom of the hill. It's also an easy walk to the pier where the boats take off. We couldn't have found a better place!

Wonderful accommodations in Bowness

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here for three nights in early March and loved it. It was a very comfortable and stylish flat with a great view. It was very close to town but as others have mentioned a short but steep climb up the hill. Christine answered all my questions promptly and was very pleasant in her interactions. I would highly recommend staying here.

There are numerous pubs, restaurants and a cinema within walking distance. Bowness is the home of the Beatrix Potter museum and a short car journey from the writer's home.

For the walker there are details of walks from the doorstep up onto Brantfell behind the house.

This is an ideal base for exploring the Lake District
