By Sedona on 19-Nov-2017

Ruth was a very welcoming host and made our stay go smoothly. The home fitted our needs perfectly with three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a well equipped kitchen and a large lounge looking out on the beautiful garden. We were able to walk to the village that has good shops and restaurants. Everything was very clean and well decorated.

Good Quality accommodation in quiet part of Bowness

By James H on 02-Sep-2017

Property had everything we needed including off street parking, tranquility, WiFi. Close enough to the town centre to walk to the pubs and restaurants. Bowness is a good place to stay with good views of lake Windermere and central enough to do some walks or trips out with the kids.

Spacious, Clean Great location

By Claire Sawyers on 28-Aug-2017

I would thoroughly recommend this cottage. Our family stayed here in August and the cottage is perfectly located in Bowness on Windermere. It is a steep walk into the town centre and Lake Windermere but takes less than 5 minutes. This meant we were easily in reach of the restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops in Bowness without having to take the car. We also took a boat trip to Ambleside, again having a car free day. Brookwood Cottage is far bigger than the pictures show - it is light, airy and spacious. Beds were all very comfortable and plenty of storage space in each bedroom. Bathrooms are modern, very good showers and the whole house clean and very well equipped. Lots of tourist information, maps and walk books are on hand along with a good selection of DVDs and games/puzzles. Ruth, the owner, lives next door and is on hand (but not intrusive) if there are any queries. She was fast to communicate, friendly and has a wealth of local knowledge. Brant Fell, a walk you can do from the cottage provides lovely views over Windermere but the whole of the Lake District is just stunning!

Peaceful perfect; the house is a short walk into Bowness down the hill, with walks and views just up the hill. The house is large and well equipped.

The cottage is of period design and layout. The furniture and fittings matched the style of the cottage. But it had all mod cons in kitchen and bathrooms. The lounge for me was wonderful. Having high ceilings and very tall french window made one feel majestic and very relaxed looking onto the lawned area with flower boarders. The entire property was spotlessly clean, this is so important and the entire family soon relaxed and enjoyed their stay in this cottage. The owner who lives next door was very friendly too. So yes, we all enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay in the Lake District. One more thing to mention, the cottage is within easy access to shops and restaurants so no need to use a car. But its location being in a very quiet lane meant you had no disturbance from the towns facilities.
