Ideally located to enjoy Bowness on foot. Represents decent value for money as not as expensive as other apartments . It's clean & tidy and has all basic needs covered. However, there are a couple of issues re comfort - bed is not that comfortable and shower is tricky to access if you're not very agile. It provided us with what we needed for short break though and we were generally quite happy with it.

Bownessy Retreat was perfect for us with our little dog. It was small and comfy and clean and the location is perfect. Parking right outside the front door which is easy to access and feels very secure. The flat is sweet and clean but quite basic. That said we didn’t really want for anything. A little extra decoration and touch up would do wonders. The only downsides were the bath was quite difficult to get in and out of - not for the unabled body! The wi-fi was quite temperamental and the job was a little old and rusty. But despite this I would still happily stay again. The location is perfect, only two minutes walk from the town centre yet it feels secluded and quiet. I would happily recommend this flat to any one.

Located in the centre of Bowness, easy walking distance to everything. Cottage was clean and well presented on arrival with clean towels and bedding. Parking space was a bonus. Overall would look to use again. 5 ⭐️
