    A converted 16th century farmhouse, this house offers a unique opportunity to stay in a listed, traditional Lakeland home.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have stayed at Bellman houses many times and have always enjoyed the amazing location and lovely old original features of the house. The updated kitchen and new bathroom have really enhanced our stay this year (new photos needed). Plus new heating has made it lovely and cosy. We will be back! more

Management response:

Thank you very much for posting a review, glad you like the refurbishments. We hope to welcome you back again soon! more

Management response:

Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and liked the alterations we have been making. I'm sorry the fuel costs were high, we are in the process of fitting oil central heating which should reduce this in the future. We hope to see you back again. more

The resident sheep were friendly and enjoyed looking in the windows at us, as we were looking out at them. It is away from all the noise and bustle of Bowness, while being within... more
