“The accommodation is very comfortable and spotlessly clean.”
Bowness-on-Solway village is built of the site of a former Roman fort, in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and was the main attraction for our visit.
Currently the accommodation is located within the midst of a major heritage renovation project. Consequently, heavy machinery is moving around the complex during the day.
The site is open to residents and the general public offering food, refreshments and a play area for children.
The seating area for food and drink is directly under the window of the accommodation. Consequently the smell of cigarettes, food and people chatting is disturbing. This was particularly noticeable at the weekend with many people coming and going. The entrance door to the accommodation suites lacked security as it was often left open. Free range chickens roam the site and the resident cockerel begins crowing at 4.00 am.
We think it would be useful to guests if the developers produced an information leaflet to explain to guests the important history of the site and the interesting plans they are undertaking.
