It is perfect for active family holidays or adults exploring the Lake District by bike as it has outdoor storage space in the private garden.

Easy access to public transport services make Raglan Cottage an ideal Lakeland holiday location all year round.


Lovely cottage
Arrived on a cold, dark night to a very welcoming cheery cottage with lights and heating on. Very cosy but spacious, lovely decor, spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and everything we needed for our long weekend. Bowness Centre just minutes away. Would recommend this beautiful cottage. We will definately be back.

Beautiful cottage
just returned from a long weekend which we shared with friends, plenty of room for 2 couples. Beautifully decorated with everything you need and everything in a new condition. Ideally situated, just a short walk from the lake, bars and restaurants, bus stop at the end of the terrace to take you to Windermere, Ambleside, and Grasmere, Had a great time, will definitely book again.

Perfect home away from home in the Lakes!
My partner and I have stayed in this cottage twice now, once in March 2016 and March 2017 and have loved both stays. The cottage is perfectly located, just a short walk from Windermere Lake and Windermere Village, it is right in the centre of Bowness. There are lots of lovely restaurants and takeaways on the doorstep. There are also a few small supermarkets to buy food etc. The cottage is nicely presented and extremely clean, and even though it is in the middle of the village, it is very quiet. The kitchen is well equipped, with everything you would need to cook your own meals. The log fire in the living room is our favourite bit! It really does feel like a home away from home. I would highly recommend this cottage for families and couples. We will definitely be back!

A lovely cottage
We stayed here for a long weekend and could not be more pleased. We had looked on the website so were more than aware of what we were booking. The cottage was well presented and in an excellent location. The master bed is the most comfortable I have ever slept in. I would recommend this cottage and will definitely be booking again.

Mind the steps
I booked this cottage for my mother and myself. I will say that if you are fully mobile, fit, do not suffer with dizziness, have good eyesight and are able to use steps with ease without initially having the need of a banister at the top then this place is lovely and l would recommend. If however you suffer from any of the above please be aware that the steps here are steep and somewhat narrow. There is a very narrow landing at the top of the stairs which leads to both bedrooms and the landing itself has steps to each bedroom, niether has a banister, which could be a hazard for some. The banister to the stairs on descending is placed too low and is therefore out of reach for an adult until you have already begun to descend 2-3 steps. A shame, we had to leave after one night and needed to pay for another property due to the owner and Lakelovers not offering any refund or reduced rate for our weeks stay. As l say though, this is a lovely cottage, well presented and furnished and close to the centre of Bowness, enjoy.
