Great location for everything. Bedrooms lovely and the lounge. Kitchen could do with a few more untensils as we like to cook. Shower lovely just watch when wAlking into bathroom as very tight fit. Back yard could do with a clean up as very slippy. But would recommend to friends.

Had a lovely few days break except for a couple of things. No parking outside was bit tricky but we managed with car park few minutes away. The cottage was spacious enough for the 2 of us and our dog. We thought it could have done with deep clean as we found dust in various places if you put your hand down (must add we were not checking for dust) but at least the bathrooms were spotless. The tiny backyard was filthy needed a good hose down to remove moss which could be slippy. Rooms nice furnished though making it feel cosy and cottage like. My main PROBLEM though was the WINDOWS particulary downstairs. There was NO PRIVACY at the windows you could see straight into lounge, there were solid pull down blinds but that made the room dark (venetian or verticals or nets would have been better). Fully aware that the age of the property attracts attention but it is not nice when you are sitting having a drink and tourists are taking photos of you i.e. standing outside the window smiling and snapping away. For us that spoilt what was a lovely few days need break.

Well situated cottage. No immediate parking but permit given by cottage holiday company allowed us to park in nearby car park (2 mins walk). The cottage was warm and clean and had almost everything you'd need. It is close to pubs but if you're not usually in bed before 11.00-11.30,it's not really an issue. Back bedroom is a lot quieter than front one. Would recommend it as a good location to tour the lakes. Only 2 small requests. 1. Fix the guttering above the front door as it creates a waterfall directly above the door. 2. Nowhere to hang things up in the back bedroom at the moment. Can I suggest hooks on the back of the doors ?

Great location, very modern interior. Cream couch, carpets, white rug, very stained and grubby, could do with a good clean, chiped crockery. Lots of attention from tourists taking photos outside window, so no privacy. Expected noise on night due to location but holiday is being spoilt by the constant blasting of music from the white house hotel, they have speakers on outside walls, have asked them several times to turn it down but it creeps up again, so no peace. Have had quieter holidays in blackpool. 3 days to go and cant wait to get home.

Overall excellent service, the cottage was well proportioned. The location is very central but could be a little noisy at night during weekends. Decor was very modern and cottage was suitable for our young baby. One bedroom was lacking in space to store clothing. In other cottages we have stayed at we have appreciated additional touches such as availability of dvd / games collection.

This was my 2nd trip too the lakes. 25 years was the last one, Was so impressed with the description of cottage and its location. Excellent standard of cottage. Considering it a rental it is decorated as Tho you are staying in a real house rather than a holiday let. Location is great 10 min stroll to bowness with all the usual shops. Winderemere is about the same which is right where the boats are. Overall fantastic place location. I would certainly book this cottage again. Car park 5 min walk but who care you on holiday.

A lovely comfortable cottage. The only let down was the piles of rubbish bags in the back yard. Some of which had split open.

Arrived in Windermere to collect keys where parking is a bit of an issue, went back to locate parking permit which is kept in the cottage. Arrived in Bowness and found cottage but nowhere to stop and unload luggage or to enter cottage to retrieve parking permit therefore had to park and pay and bring luggage down from the car park (2 mins walk). Cottage itself was lovely, clean, beautifully decorated but the garden quoted was a dingy dank back yard, not anywhere you could sit out. Well equipped though could have done with more crockery and cutlery to save having dishwasher on twice during the day. Cottage is very centrally located however as it was bank holiday it was noisy at night due to proximity to pubs... Wouldn't have caused any concern except for the fact that we had to stay in with the kids! Close to tesco, shops, pubs and lake boat departure point. Best bit: close to amenities, nice decor. Worst bit: Unloading and loading due to parking situation.

Fantastic location, equipped with everything you could possibly need including a lovely fire to make an already cosy cottage even cosier! Absolutely wonderful!

This is a well-appointed little cottage. It was clean and warm when we arrived. We really enjoyed our stay. If quiet is important to you - the cottage is surround by pubs and at the weekend can be quite noisy. Lighting in the lounge is a little dim - I knit and the light was not quite sufficient to be comfortable. The second bedroom has no clothes storage other than very small bedside table drawers. I would suggest that a couple of open shelves under the window would be really helpful - otherwise things have to stay in your luggage. Loved the doves who perched opposite the bedroom window

This cottage is one of the nicest places you could stay at for a rental property. It is in the best location for all the restaurants and bars. But it left a lot to be desired about its cleanliness it looks like it had not had a good clean in a long time the throws on the furniture were dirty and thread bare.
