    • “The flat had every appliance you would need. It is very spacious. The only thing we found was the sofa in front of the TV is not very comfortable as it doubles up as a safa bed. We had a really good visit and would recomend the flat to friends and family.”

    • “Howgill apartment was in a perfect location in the lovely village of Windermere - two minutes walk from all the amenities, pubs, shops, cafes etc. The apartment was very spacious, well appointed and homely. The living dining room has been updated since the photos were taken - painted and carpeted. The kitchen was well equipped but dated. Our only issue was the beds. The double bed was very hard and uncomfortable - I had to sleep on the sofa (which looked tatty but was much more comfortable than the bed)! The apartment was in a quiet spot despite being so close to the town. Key pick up was easy as the office is on the street just behind the flat. Parking is brilliant - an under cover car port in a secure gated car park. This was much appreciated as the streets are very busy. If you are taking a dog, please note that the park directly opposite does not allow dogs. There are lots of other places nearby that dogs are allowed. Bowness (with boat trips etc) is only about 1 1/2 miles away and is in walking distance (a similar distance to Lake Windermere). All in all, we enjoyed our stay at Howgill.”

    • “Stayed in may for a fishing trip with 4 pals having originally booked somewhere else only to have the rug pulled underneath us. Cottage holidays sent me alternatives with howgill being one. How glad am I,the place was perfect. Arrived at lake, fished all day, went to the ship and blew the froth off a few and found the digs. Gated secure parking, up the stairs and in. very spacious clean and tidy. If your after the ritz don't bother, but howgill isn't ritz money. For 5 lads it was we had churchills rockin!”
