    • “Superb property and great value for money”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Loved this Cottage, (No16) When we arrived we had a complimentary gift of jams a lovely gesture we thought. It was like a tardis inside, the bathroom & shower room both had toilets which was a bonus for 6 of us staying there. had a parking permit for 1 car as only one space for a car wasn't too bad to get a space from Sunday had 5 roads to park but most where taken on the Saturday, the owner let us park at the back of the property. Mrs Davies was extremely helpful. We also had a pass to the spa hotel used the swimming pool there & you didn't need to take towels. Quite a few pubs, restaurants, shops & supermarkets close by but quite a walk to the lake parking was a nightmare by the lake. I would definitely recommend this Cottage to anyone.”

    • “We love this cottage. It is ideally situated to visit the Lake District area to its fullest. The convenience of being in Windermere makes it ideal for shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. This cottage is immaculate. It is like a tardis - there is so much room. The decor is modern and neutral which I like. The two bathrooms are beautiful as are the three bedrooms and the beds are sooo comfortable. It is a very quiet street - my only bugbear is that a car parked opposite our driveway on double yellow lines on numerous occasions which made it difficult to get in and out of our space without lots of effort ! We love 'The Prince of India' and 'The Little chippy'. We will definitely be back - don't hesitate in booking this cottage.”

    • “Excellent”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Excellent location literally a stroll away from all the facilities you need but very quiet at the same time. The Cottage was decorated to a high standard and we were very pleased with kitchen bathroom facilities and bedrooms were comfortable. The only small suggestion we would make is to include a of folding chairs for use in the lounge as it was a little tight on sofa space for 6 people. We had a lovely break. thank you”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We visited No 16 with our daughter, her husband, baby and toddler who had travelled from Orkney. We had come from near Bath,so everyone was tired. We arrived to lovely welcome pack, a warm house and our host visited to make sure we had all the information we needed, which was very considerate. The house was great for our 2 year old grandson who was safe to run around downstairs. The town cente was seconds away, which was useful when we needed milk etc at the last minute but our house was nice and quiet. Even out of season there was loads to do and we would definitely stay there again.”

    • “Amazing Christmas Break”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “A truly memorable Christmas break in this superb cottage. Location - fantasic, walking distance to everything . The house itself is full of charm, decorated beautifully, and has everything you could possible need for a berak. We made christmas dinner here and had 6 of us round the table comfortably. We used the washing machine , DVD player, and bbq on boxing day and all to a high quality standard . Beds are soft and comfy, and a great shower! We used the facilities at the spa/gym which was included in the rental package and was a real nice touch to our wonderful stay! The swimming pool here looks on to the lakes and is def worth exploring . The owner could not have been more helpful to our requests, and was easily available at all times. I have recommended the accomodation to family and friends , and will def be back .”

    • “Simply The Greatest Holiday Rental in the Lakes”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This house in the centre of Bowness,Windermere is amazing, superbly decorated and complete with all the utensils you would expect of a luxury holiday rental. Being in the centre parking is at a premium but we found the space at the front and then the parking permit for the surrounding streets perfect. The village is quaint and full of interesting and quality products. If you are going to the lakes look no further, book now!!!”

    • “A comfortable and relaxed venue”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Four long term friends who gather together annually from all parts of the country, chose this venue from the brochure and were not disappointed. We enjoyed a comfortable and relaxed venue, clean and well appointed though we did wonder how we might have managed if the full compliment of six were present. Our sole concern was the lack of contact with agent or owner when a power failure meant we then had to use our initiative, which worked for us, but could equally not have done so. The central position meant we could walk out to eat and park,driving to other locations around the area during the day to see the sights we wanted to access, particularly the splended art and crafts houses within easy reach.”

The location was perfect with a very short walk to the local shops and 5mins on the bus to Bowness. The local bus service is excellent with routes going to all the other lakes and shops, which are great.”
