Lovely family run cottage. Very relaxing from the moment we were greeted to when we checked out. We only stayed overnight as it was my partners birthday. The bedroom was small which was the only downside, it had complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate. It also had a small private bathroom which was a bonus. Windermere itself is beautiful. The...

We have just stayed for 2 nights. Adrian, Heather and Hamish the Westie were fantastic hosts. The cottage is in a superb location walking distance into Bowness. The cottage is delightful and the gardens and waterfall stunning. We walked down to Stockghyll Water Meadow and watched the sun set which was spectacular. The home cooked breakfast each morning was scrumptious....

Very welcoming arrival, with Adrian and the Yorkie, Hamish. Clean room, comfortable bed and great breakfasts. Good base for exploring the Lake District. Good value for money and we would definitely stay again. The waterfall in the back garden is a bonus.
