Nearby is Grizedale Forest Park which offers good walks, mountain biking and the 'Go Ape' adventure playground, whilst for those who aren't keen on 'monkeying around' the National Trust care for a number of properties in the area.

The house was very clean, well equipped and as described. It was in a good central location serving as an excellent base to explore the Lake District.

The location met our needs and the house was perfect for our party being large, airy and very comfortable. We will be wanting to book for next year as we all enjoyed it so much.

Lake House is in a great location for Bowness and shops, restaurants, pubs and the boats and ferry. Nice and comfortable in the lounge and kitchen with large bedrooms.

The position was great and The standard of the property could not have been better and it was lovely and warm at all times. As soon as we arrived we felt at home.

This was a perfect holiday home only a few steps from the bay area and the centre of Bowness. All the rooms were very spacious - lots of space for a larger family - with good sized bedrooms and incredibly comfortable beds - all adult size! The kitchen had all the mod cons you could require and everything was of a very high quality. The owner left an ample supply of; tea, coffee, chocolate to get us started, and a bottle of wine for our celebration. Everything beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. This is the kind of home we would buy for ourselves! Excellent!

The location of the property was excellent, could not ask for a more central location. The house was spacious and clean and provided everything we could possibly need for a week away from home. All beds were very comfortable with crisp clean linen in all rooms. All mod cons, such as dishwasher and washer and dryer available.

We stayed in this property while we were in the lakes for the Great North Swim recently, with ages in our group ranging from 24-57. There are 4 bedrooms each sleeping 2 people, with 2 bathrooms which suit the needs of 8 people just fine. This property is located right in the centre of Bowness, less than 5 minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and also to the ferry services. You can see the lake from the balcony. There is parking for 2 cars directly outside the property, but there is parking on the road just outside too, we had 4 cars between us and we didn't have any problems parking all weekend. The property was simple, clean, quite spacious. It had a very comfortable living room with plenty of seating for all of us, and could seat all 8 of us around the dining table. The kitchen was well equipped including dishwasher (a bonus when there's lots of people making more washing up!) The rooms are set over 3 floors, with the lounge, kitchen and dining room on the 1st floor, but there are a bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, so as far as access is concerned if you can manage one flight of stairs you'll be ok. The only thing I would suggest is the addition of a recycling bin, as we ended up taking all of our recyclable material home with us rather than throw it in the municipal waste.

Access to the lake was minutes away (walking) and there are plenty of walks from the door if needed. Lake House was ideal for us, our parents and our dog - there was plenty of room and the garage was a bonus for cleaning dirty boots/dog etc. This house is plenty big enough for two families or one large family with teenagers/children, you don't feel like you are on top if each other.
