    • “Miss Potters loft looked lovely in the brochure, and did not disappoint. Directions to the apartment and the key location were spot on. The stairs up to the apartment were wide and not steep . The apartment was clean and spacious,with a comfortable feel. Lots of brochures and instructions for all the equipment, everything in working order. As the brochure says it is an ideal position for all that Bowness has to offer. The supermarket just yards away, bars,restaurants and shops easily found. The week we were there ,we had lovely weather, and did find the apartment quite warm when we came back in the late afternoon, but opening the doors to the false balcony soon cooled it down. The beds were very comfortable, and plenty of hanging space in the wardrobes. Television in the larger bedroom was a nice touch. I did have some trouble with the tv in the lounge,a minor annoyance that I did not seem to be able to correct. 5 minutes after switching on, an information banner from Panasonic appeared either at the top or bottom of the screen .I tried unsuccessfully to get rid of it permanently, but it kept coming back on. The bedrooms face the main road, making traffic noise audible at times. A great place, i would recommend.”

    • “A great little flat, with decent facilities, in a great location close to all the shops and restaurants in bowness. We have stayed a lot in bowness and at many places some which charge a lot more, and this has to be one of the best places for value for money, all in all a great find, we will definitely be returning”

    • “We have had the most fantastic weekend at miss potters loft! We holdiday regularly and have very high standards and I wasn’t sure what to expect from a loft apartment above a shop! But my goodness it was one of the loveliest places we have ever stayed! It was spotless, it had every thing we needed, it was in a perfect location and it felt so cosy and I honestly didn’t want to leave! Me and my husband said we would buy it at the drop of a hat if it ever went up for sale! Lots of bars restaurants and shops on our doorstep we were spoilt for choice! 10 out of 10 holiday”

    • “Very comfortable and well equipped accommodation. Very central to Windermere and all it had to offer. Plenty of choice for places to eat out. Stunning scenery and lovely walks. Only down side, a little noisy at night from people eating pubs.”

    Mrs Graham, Colchester, August 2018

    • “Great location . Comfy bed. Parking a benefit.”

    Mrs Watson, Dalkeith, July 2018

    • “This is a lovely little flat ideally situated for shops pubs etc. It was bright and airy. Fantastic location for leaving the car and exploring the area, either by walking or taking the boat trips across the lakes.”

    Mr & Mrs Johnson, Crewe, April 2018

    • “The flat had most of the things needed. Unfortunately it did not have a fan. We stayed during a heat wave and it was extremely hot in the flat. With all the windows open the road noise and general street noise was really loud and we struggled to get a good nights sleep. Overall however the flat was perfectly placed to get to all the attractions and was well furnished. The upside of being right on the road was that it was easy to drive to neighbouring towns. The flat was also in easy walking distance of a number of cafes,restaurants and bars as well as the waterfront.”
