The cottage was very well-equipped with everything we needed. It was warm and comfortable and more roomy than expected. Natives were also very friendly! Incidentally, the heaters are not storage heaters; they are (extremely-effective, instant-heat) electric convection heaters. The location is excellent. It was straightforward to both walk from the house and do some classic lakeland walks (Rydal and Grasmere; Fairfield Horseshoe; Helvellyn). Also good cycling (circumnavigate Lake Windermere or, via the chain-link ferry, cycle across to Grizedale and Coniston). In Bowness itself we were able to hire a rowing boat and, on our only really wet day, go to the Bowness cinema.
