    Great location for dog walks and access to shops. Clean and well equipped accommodation. Could do with another shower upstairs and would be great if the back was enclosed for dogs. Apart from that highly recommend.

    This was our second holiday in this lovely cottage in two years. We highly recommend it.

    From the very start, it was easy to book up the cottage with confirmation following quickly and correctly. The cottage was exactly as discribed, if not better! It was lovely and clean with a very homely atmosphere. It was an added bonus to have consumables there to use on arrival as this is not the case at most places. After lovely long walks in the surrounding area, it was lovely to come back to the cottage with a wood burner to relax infront of. I would not hesitate to recommend your cottage and the booking agency. Thank you.

    Excellent place to stay dog friendly excellent for walks shops close by. Well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay. Only one negative upstairs would benefit from a shower even if that meant the bath had to go. Will definitely stay there again.

    Fabulous place, only downside is there being only one shower for 7 people, though there is a second bath which could be used. Only, people in my party preferred a shower so made mornings a bit long winded! Otherwise great stocked kitchen and big oven and hob.

    A lovely home from home. The kitchen was very well equipped to cook anything you might like. I loved the open plan layout so you don't feel left out when preparing meals. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and there was plenty of hot water for soaking in the bath after a long day out walking. There are some lovely walks to be had uphill from the front door and you can walk down to Bowness centre in 10 minutes, so some days we didn't need to move the car.

    Just needs another shower to accommodate the family’s needs. The upstairs bathroom would be ideal for a walk in shower room. When we had a problem, it was dealt with efficiently and in a caring way. A lovely place and we would stay again. Many thanks.

    This cottage expanded on three sides provided excellent accommodation for our whole family but as has been previously suggested by previous guests the addition of a shower over the bath upstairs would be a great improvement. Seven trying to share one shower was less than ideal! The huge kitchen dining area was great and the kitchen area extremely well equipped with a great double oven, a large fridge and a dishwasher. The original kitchen near the front door that is now a games room was a huge attraction for our grandchildren equipped with a football table, Nintendo GameCube with a range of games and many other jigsaws, games etc. The cottage location near the top of the hill just 50 yards from a footpath up onto the fells leading to a superb viewing point over Lake Windermere was a plus for us, even though walking down into Bowness (or rather back up from Bowness) was challenging for those of us not as young as we used to be!
