    “The cottage was fantastic for everything we needed.”

    It was brilliantly located for a very shrot walk into Bowness and the shops. Everywhere was beautifully clean and the living areas were extremely spacious. In fact the cottage is bigger than it appears on the photos which made it easy for the adults to spread out and the children to play. The shower was excellent too. All in all I would highly recommend. I will add check-out is 10am, which was a little earlier than we were hoping but understandable during COVID. We would definitely come back!
