“Good central location with parking.”
Offering easy access to all local facilities. The loft is compact and the 2nd bedroom really small as is the bathroom. Despite warnings the cooker hood is a hazard to your head and needs to be moved! That said the loft offers reasonable accommodation for a short stay .- Gordon, August 2021
“Everything was fabulous, very clean, comfortable, well equipped and super close to all attractions.”
The only criticism we have, and I hope this is seen as constructive, is the late check-in time. We would of preferred an earlier time so we could have enjoyed a bit more of our first day.- Julie, July 2021
“Lovely comfortable flat, very well equipped and has the bonus of parking in the middle of town.”
However, we were very shocked the first night at how very noisy it was with the bedroom window open at night. The main road is right outside the window and the sound of cars and motorbikes revving up the hill outside the window was awful, together with noisy people and sirens. Okay with windows shut but this would be no good in very hot weather. While the flat was very nice and convenient, we were disappointed at how noisy it was.- Diana, July 2021
“Lovely apartment right in the centre of Bowness with the added bonus of parking.”
Nice decor and fully equipped kitchen, also lovely views down to the Lake, would definitely recommend this for a stay in the Lakes- Julie, June 2021
“A very well appointed Loft, floor was very dusty especially under the table and chairs and the cookerhood was very dusty too.”
Dining table chairs quite badly stained, apart from these minor issues we had a comfortable week.- Gwenyth, September 2020
Many thanks for taking the time to feedback on your stay at Miss Potters Loft. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay! Thank you again for letting us know about the issues you experienced, I am pleased to confirm that we are have now replaced the chairs. Property Owner
“Excellent, high quality and very comfortable apartment right in the middle of Bowness.”
Fully equipped for a short break.- Andrew, August 2020
“Fantastic location with the benefit of off road parking.”
Nice pleasant accommodation and comfortable bed. The TV didn’t work when we got there but after a call to Sykes, then a call back from the very nice owners it was repaired the next day. Used iplayer and dvd for the evening that tv wasn’t working. Would recommend.- Angela, August 2020
“We spent a lovely few days in Miss Potters Loft which is in an excellent location in the centre of Bowness.”
The apartment itself was fantastic with everything we could possibly have needed for a comfortable stay. It was lovely and cosy to come back to after a day spent walking or shopping, and we felt really at home there. We would highly recommend Miss Potters Loft and we certainly hope to return in the near future.- Alison, December 2019
“Lovely loft, was nervous when looking at the slightly shabby exterior but inside it was gorgeous.”
.ideal location, absolutely perfect. Comfy bed, plenty of wardrobe space. Kitchen and cooking utensils all included. Nice bathroom. Warm flat, turned radiator off in bedroom as a bit too warm at night. Plenty of information available.- Mandy, November 2019
“The apartment is amazing , the location couldn't be better.”
We had an amazing week, and will be booking again next year.- Ian, October 2019
“Great central location for exploring the town of bowness and the rest of the lakes.”
The flat had everything we needed, we cooked a couple of meals in and didn't need anything extra apart from the food. On a couple of especially rainy evenings we stayed in and there was plenty for us to do, including the board games, the Nintendo Wii and the smart tv so we could login to our Netflix. Just like a home from home.- Jim, August 2019
“The flat was wonderful and more spacious than expected.”
It was ideally located and filled our requirements exactly. Just a few minor comments that might help other visitors: 1. Please note that the Co-op referenced in the directions was the second that we passed. 2. I may have missed it in the guidance but the entry stairs might be a difficult for elderly visitors. 3. Warning that the entrance to the parking is narrow and not obviously a road might help. 4. Clarification that the flat entrance is at the front of the shops and on the main road would also help 5. The bathroom sink was taking it's time to empty. I think there is a blockage. 6. I left a phone charger plugged in to one of the bedrooms. I'd like it back please. I'll pay the postage but be aware that a replacement will be less than £10 from Amazon.- Steven, June 2019
Thank you for your feedback, we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have revised our directions. Thank you for bringing our attention to the problem regarding the sink, this issue resolved straight away upon your departure. We will have a look for the charger, and be in touch in due course.

“Fabulous holiday, easy to book, highly recommended”- Karl, April 2019
“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- Andrew, November 2018
“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- Amy, November 2018
“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.- Gill, August 2018
“Great location .”
Comfy bed. Parking a benefit.- Moira, July 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.- Nasreen, June 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.- Andrew & Carole, April 2018
