                                                            We had a lovely stay in the cottage, which was located in a great spot, cosy and well equipped.

                                                            Fantastic location and homely cottage

                                                            Nicole T.

                                                            Loved our stay, great location right in the centre of Bowness. Easy parking just a couple of mins walk away.

                                                            Absolute gem in the centre of Bowness

                                                            Carl B.

                                                            Fantastic cottage right in the centre of Bowness (literally 20m from Hole in t'Wall pub). Very cosy with the gas fire, well equipped kitchen, fast broadband and would highly recommend to anyone visiting Windermere. Very easy to drop our bags off at the cottage on arrival and the car park (parking ticket provided free of charge) was close only 150m away. Looking forward to visiting again in the summer!

                                                            After such a record amount of snow and bad weather throughout the UK - thrilled you had a lovely cosy Holiday. The cottage is in a great central spot to venture out for a quick meal or drink or to head for the Hills for long walks. Come back again.

                                                            Beautiful cottage in a great location
