So many positives but the small negatives counted
So many positives at this house: PERFECT LOCATION, walkable into town & all shops, restaurants, lake ; SPACIOUS property sleeps 8 & seats 8 sitting & dining; HEAT & WATER great, even in a frosty November week; PLENTY of good kitchen facilities and tableware. Welcome pack very appreciated. Lovely bedding & towels. Showers fab. Dishwasher,freezer,washing machine, parking all perfect. Negatives though really counted...uncomfortable seating in lounge and very uncomfortable hard springy mattresses on both double beds. I then tried a single bed to no avail...very uncomfortable. At the end of this week I am aching all over and those in other beds report the same. SUCH a shame...we loved it here but the lack of sleep and sore joints would prevent us booking again.

Excellent place
We have just returned from a five day break in this property and would definitely book again next time we holiday in the Lakes. The house is comfortable and convenient for shops, Windermere and main roads without being in the centre of things. Lovely walks directly opposite and by using the rear entrance easy to leave waterproofs, muddy shoes and coats to dry in the garage. The welcome pack was much appreciated, along with a nice bottle of wine. Sitting on the balcony was an additional pleasure we did not anticipate. Recommend Vinegar Jones for a take away!

Has it all !!!
Wow what a place to stay location is perfect just down the road to the main boats so can go most places ! The house has everything u can need other than a seperate recycling bin but that's just me being fussy ! Kitchen very very well equipped they even leave u dishwasher tablets ! Clean bedding towels and tea towels! We were a family of 6 a seperate shower downstairs aswell as a bathroom upstairs were good for us to use both ! Washer and dryer were handy as we stayed for 2 weeks we had guests round so it accommodated 8 adults and 3 kids for dinner in the seperate dining room with the supplied high chair and travel cot ! Good thinking but what wouldn't hurt is a couple of stair gates ! Really couldn't state how much we enjoyed our stay ! Thankyou and if ur thinking definitely worth the stay !

Great accommodation close to the lake
Excellent holiday house close to Lake Windermere and Bowness village centre yet quiet and peaceful. Clean, spacious accommodation. Well equipped. We will visit again.

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!
