    “Excellent location within a 3 minute walk of lake/shops etc.”

    Overall a nice cottage.Carpets are in need of cleaning/ replacing in many rooms however rooms were well furnished and had pleasing decor. No wood burning stove as outlined in listing, only an electric fake log fire that didn’t seem to output any heat. Kitchen had plenty of equipment for self catering. Dining area very dark and not a space we wanted to spend time in - could do with an update to match rest of property. Small enclosed patio with furniture however this is situated on the front of ...

    Overall a nice cottage.Carpets are in need of cleaning/ replacing in many rooms however rooms were well furnished and had pleasing decor. No wood burning stove as outlined in listing, only an electric fake log fire that didn’t seem to output any heat. Kitchen had plenty of equipment for self catering. Dining area very dark and not a space we wanted to spend time in - could do with an update to match rest of property. Small enclosed patio with furniture however this is situated on the front of the property so not private or quiet, as the road has vehicles and people regularly passing through. Parking is for a small/medium vehicle. Our car overhung into the road. Overall a lovely stay in a pleasant cottage , the location was so good we could overlook some of the negative points of the property to return again.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you had an enjoyable stay at Gildabrook Cottage. Regarding the wood burning stove, we apologise for the confusion with the wood burner wording in the summary listing, this has now been amended to match the main description 'log effect electric stove'. Once again thank you for your comments and we hope to see you again soon, Regards Heart of the Lakes team Property Owner

About the location

BOWNESS-ON-WINDERMERE

The vibrant twin towns of Bowness and Windermere hold enduring appeal for visitors to the Lake District National Park, with each providing a range of nearby attractions, amenities, shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. A variety of boat trips and boat hire are available from Windermere Lake Cruises in Bowness to Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside (at the southern end of the lake where the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are situated). The World of Beatrix Potter attraction and the Old Laundry theatre are 1.5 miles away. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is a 30-minute walk to enjoy the spectacular panorama of far-reaching views over the lake and surrounding fells. Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake. The area is ideally situated for exploring all that this region has to offer, whether by foot, bike, car, railway or bus; and is within easy reach of attractions such as the spectacular Langdales, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park, with its delightful walks and famous outdoor sculptures, mountain biking and “Go-Ape” adventure park, Ullswater, Kendal, Keswick, stone circles, Roman forts and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
