    Great character cottage in a peaceful location and yet just a few minutes walk to the centre of Bowness. Pet friendly however dogs are not allowed to be left which limits how many of the amenities you can enjoy. Fiona who lives next door and looks after the cottage is very friendly and helpful

    We enjoyed a fabulous second visit to Rustic Cottage. It's in a perfect location and the garden is a little suntrap in addition to being a safe area for the dogs (second dog with owner's permission). The cottage, although small, is spotlessly clean and very comfortable with good facilities; the only recommendation would be for an extra pan in the kitchen!!

    It was our second time at Rustic cottage and it delivered yet again. It’s a perfect spot, quiet yet right at the heart of Bowness-on-Windermere, no need to use the car once we had arrived, fantastic. Would recommend this to anyone.

    A very over-priced accommodation. A comfy bed but equipment in kitchen left a lot to be desired - ONE lidded saucepan, two lids, no saucepans, tatty storage cupboard with catch held by pice of cardboard. NO logs in cottage and outside back and front door no evidence of any brushing having taken place. Very small TV for this cost and curtains in sitting room didn't close - mechanism faulty! Bottle rack in kitchen broken - only 2 burners for 4 people!! No oven light. No spare toilet rolls in bathroom. This accommodation requires a lot of TLC - will never return or recommend to others.

    The cottage was not very clean, the kitchen was very small and would be hard to cook in due to the size of it. The garden was lovely but is right next to a public path. The bathroom was very dated and the toilet was leaking. Would I return to Rustic I think the property was overpriced for what it was and I also think paying an extra £25 to take your dog is unreasonable when clearly the £25 is not used to clean the property when you vacate! Sorry but I am just being as honest as possible.

    This is a really super cottage in a fantastic location, in need of a thorough clean. It's very competitive cost however reflected what you got, to be fair. The kitchen is really tiny without much worktop or a draining board. Its a giggle for four people, but better for two. The owner clearly loves this house, with beautiful lights in the lounge and large beds, with a super garden for dogs and children - we loved it. But unfortunately it is not clean. Once it has had a thorough clean of the lounge, kitchen and bathroom, with new ovenware and an extra oven shelf, I would be back in a shot
