    "Lovely, unusual property. Lots of character and room. A little hard to find however. Quiet and secluded but close to the town so a great balance."
    Chelsea ‐ 12 Nov 2018
    "The cottage/house was lovely and spacious. Great location with lots of local amenities. Bowness shops easily within walking distance. 1 downside was the cleanliness of the place, lots of cobwebs especially in the bathroom. Also a green rim to the shower. Appreciate it is a big house so will take a lot to clean in short amounts of time. Didn't impact our holiday, we had a lovely stay."

    "Very dirty house. Deco very old and dull."
    Ann ‐ 19 Oct 2018
    "Need to be aware of steps from master bedroom to bathroom. There are three steps down, short corridor and 4 steps up. The stairs are very steep with no hand rail on the last four steps. The towels were dirty and stained. Mould in the fridge which had to be cleaned before use. Contacted the local office to inform them of these issues. Very small kitchen that can only be used by one person at a time."

    "Looked like a haunted house, walked straight out and lost our money."
    Tony ‐ 23 Sep 2018
    "Nice property in a good location only 10mins walk to town - roomy and comfortable and cleanOnly negatives was a narrow kitchen although well equipped but difficult for two to workWould have liked another toilet for 5 person property but overall satisfied"
    Jeanine ‐ 10 Sep 2018
    "Enjoyed a lovely 4 days stay. Kitchen well equipped for our needs. Great location close to local centre. Kids even walked down to pubs on the evening ."
    Adrian ‐ 21 Aug 2018
    "Absolutely loved staying at S45524. A lovely property in a fantastic location. If only the weather could have been so good! Will definitely go again to the area and almost certainly to the property. I’d heartily recommend it."

    "Very roomy and characterful property. Very nice gardens."
    Dhiren ‐ 29 Jul 2018
    "The only thing we found poor was the mattresses were very uncomfortable, other than this spot on & yes we would consider staying here again if this was sorted out."
    Victoria ‐ 9 Jul 2018
    "The whole place was dirty. There were even cobwebs in the bathroom. The light shades in the bedroom were thick with dust and the carpets sticky to walk on in bare feet. I was led to believe these cottage was suitable for a child however the staircase was dangerous and I didn't dare let her go up and down the stairs with out being carried. Nothing was clean in the kitchen and I had to wash all plates and cups before I used them.The positives were WiFi and being close to Bowness centre.I would not stay here again and certainly not with a young child."
    Sophie ‐ 28 Apr 2018
    "It was ok.... but more old fashioned than pictures suggest... not much of a lakeside view as such.Not our normal style accommodation think a few more representative pics needed."
    Rob ‐ 14 Apr 2018
    "Needs updating"
    Tony ‐ 25 Feb 2018
    "Relaxing and comfortable and private! Exceptionally helpful owners."
