I wasn't really looking forward to coming here, I thought it was overpriced and wasn't sure of its location due to it being booked by another family member. We were tired after long hard hours at work and it seemed a chore to drive so far. My wife and I arrived (last in our party) and although parking was a challenge we managed to stop outside the house to unload. We weren't disappointed when we went in. The house is on 4 levels and beautifully decorated. When the rain eased off we became aware of its perfect location with the town a mere few minutes walk. The house was warm with both central heating and under floor heating (which we didn't really master), the kitchen more than adequate and we have Sky and wifi, a real home from home. We were able to cater easily for our larger group and the sitting room was the hub for us to chill and have a laugh together. There were 4 couples so the price for each couple was no more than a hotel room, in fact for the time of year it was probably cheaper. Great value and location if you are coming as a larger party :) After our initial trepidation we had a brilliant time in a brilliant location with brilliant accommodation.....and of course brilliant

The kitchen was very well equipped. The technology including a printer and portable speaker were very useful. The location was good with a good variety of shops, places to eat and drink.

Great Location a stones throw from shops, bars and restaurants. Spacious accommodation, large bedrooms, plenty of space for large groups. 2 bathrooms so no queues in the morning. Our group consisted of 3 generations including teenagers and a dog, wi-ifi was excellent which was essential. Parking was a bit hit and miss even with permits but there are other options open to you. Enjoyed great weather so had some lovely walks, would recommend this house as a great base to see the Lakes.

An amazing cottage in a gorgeous location. Situated in the heart of the town; a short walk to the nearest pub. We loved our stay and most certainly will be back.

Weekend stay for 4 couples, arriving an a wet and miserable Friday afternoon to a warm and cosy cottage kicked our weekend off to a great start. The cottage is in a great location, within walking distance to the town centre and a 20 minutes walk to Bowness. The cottage had practically everything you would need. Lots of crockery, cutlery and glassware for more than 8 and the kitchen also had essentials that you forget like tea towels, salt, pepper, foil as well as coffee, tea, biscuits etc. The beds were comfy and warm,wifi was good and lots of extras like a Bluetooth speaker, charging cables, books and DVDs. We found the cottage to be spotless and there were two parking permits that we used, parking up two of our cars outside and the other one round the corner on the road with free parking. We couldn't use the garden as it didn't stop raining but the weather, although annoying didn't stop us enjoying ourselves. Had a thoroughly brilliant time and was reluctant to leave. Definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a spacious, well equipped cottage in a superb location.
