A very nice cottage with a very nice view from the window. A picture should be added to the photos of this. Very pleased overall with our stay.

Liked the estate and the view from the dining room table. The general location and the closeness of the bus stop gave easy access to many areas.

A very well equipped cottage with amazing views over lake Windermere. It was very quiet and relaxing, and the bed was very comfy. Would highly recommend!

The cottage was comfortable and warm, with wonderful views across Lake Windermere to the fells beyond. The kitchen, though small, was well-equipped with everything we needed. The main bedroom was comfortable with plenty of storage space. We were able to do the trip without a car, as the cottage was close to the rail station and good bus services, and there was also much to see and do within walking distance. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.

Priory Ghyll accommodation was simple but had all you needed we didn't feel it missed out on anything. It's not big accommodation but we found it plenty big enough for the 4 of us. we have an 11 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. We found the location of the property for our first visit to the lake district to be ideal, for walking around the local area or driving out to other areas. You can walk to Windermere in around 15mins and to Bowness in about 45 mins (we are not fast walkers). You can walk part of the way to Bowness along the lake shore. The view from the property is beautiful with deers in the evening running around. The direct shore access is just a couple of minutes walk down the path great if you have a canoe but you can not walk around the lake from here.

The cottage is in good position, a quiet location. It was easy to get hold of the key. The cottage had everything we needed along with clear instructions for all the appliances and use of hot water, shower etc. For the money it was good value. Would go again.
