“Fantastic location shame about the upkeep of the property”
Reviewed September 20, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Bowness is a fantastic location and so is the location of this property. It is also ideally suited to large groups or families with a large lounge, kitchen, balcony and good size rooms .The parking is ideal with garage and outside space. Sadly the décor is very dated and in need of a really good clean as were the curtains etc. We bought cleaning products on arrival and cleaned all surfaces which is not what you want to bother with when you arrive for a special birthday holiday and family break. When I read a previous review before we went ,regarding bites I thought oh well surely it will have had a good clean after such a review but we also suffered being bitten . Despite all of this I think if it was refurbished ,decorated upgraded and had new carpets curtains etc you would be hard pushed to find a better location.

Management Response

We are extremely sorry to hear your stay wasn't as enjoyable as we strive to provide. We have provided Waterside to holiday makers over the last 10 years, and have 45% of visitors as returning visitors year on year. Your comments did receive our immediate attention, all cleaning issues will be rectified. We have undergone a period over winter of refurbishment and updating within the property.
When a property is generally rented, we do greatly appreciate feedback of any variety, we strive to keep the property as welcoming and comfortable as possible. Occasionally issues can occur as with any property, and we do always advise visitors to advise us immediately should there be any issues that occur during your stay, this would allow the issues to be rectified at the time and allow your stay to be improved. Sadly you didn't advise us until you returned home, and the previous visitors to you didn't have any issues at all. Once again we are sorry to hear your comments, and hopefully you may visit us again in the future following our refurbishment and updating.

“Dated and tired”

Fantastic location and lovely property however decor very dated and really in need of tlc. Very well equipped but attention to detail needed ! Curtain falling off the rails when you close them and rotten dirty. Carpets dirty and not vacuumed under beds etc, cobwebs and dusty surfaces in places. We had to do a deep clean ourselves of the ground floor bedroom as one of our party was badly bitten. Dust, hairs etc vacuumed from this room filled the cylinder in the Dyson !! Such a shame as the property is fab but some of the furniture falling to bits and just in real need to some work from the owner.

I recently stayed here with my mother and a friend. The location was excellent, two minutes walk from Lake Windemere where you can catch a ferry to Ambleside and Lake Side. Shops and a variety of pubs/restaurants are just 5 minutes walk. The house location is quiet though even though a road is close by.
Lake Windemere can be seen from the lounge and master bedroom.
Décor throughout the house was tasteful with all mods cons. Having stayed in places before that cater for large groups I have experienced a mismatch of furniture and crockery etc. We were pleasantly surprised with the attention to detail throughout here.
There is a garage under the house which we didn't think we would use but found it very useful. There are three flights of stairs but there is a room on the ground floor with shower and toilet for the less able. Kitchen is on the next floor.
I would definitely recommend this house as a place to stay and hope to return soon.
