beautiful warm and very homely,perfect

what a wonderful break from the rat race of life. Me and my husband stayed at park view in January 2014,although the weather had its off days this did not spoil our stay. Park View was very easy to find on our arrival and we were so pleasantly surprised of our accommodation. It was very clean, and very light , and had everything we could have needed. The space was well furnished and it had a modern beautiful kitchen, perfect for cooking those romantic meals. it was so close, a matter of 100 yards, to Bowness where you can find plenty of idyllic shops, catering for all tourists alike, from craft shops to Beatrix potter museum . There are numerous bistros and restaurants. The walks were beautiful with idyllic village pubs and cruises you can take to neighbouring villages. Park View was lovely accommodation (home)to come back to, rest and relax. Park View was perfect for us, very beautifully decorated ,quaint, very clean and very ideally situated , perfect place to stay. We couldn't recommend it enough , we will most definitely be returning. thank you web cottages

Excellent loacation.

Very nice property in an excellent location.
The only problems we had was the noise from the accommodation above;we could hear the occupants snoring through out the night which resulted in us going home two days early as we were very tired.
The other problem was the 'bedroom' which was tiny. The living/kitchen area was far too big for just two people and we couldn't see why an extra few feet couldn't be pinched from this area just to make the bedroom more accomodating.
Apart from these two things the apartment was warm, clean and had everything you could need for your holiday.

Our stay in Bowness on Windermere

Park View was very nice it had all you could require for a base from which to tour from we wished that the weather could have been a little kinder. The only downside to Park View was the noise from the above apartment which we imagined was their lounge kept us awake a couple of nights but maybe it was the people as well all in all very good.

Fantanstic Break

Just home after spending 4 days (wish we could have stayed longer ) at Park View. Our children booked this for my husbands 70th birthday present as they know we love the lakes. Can't praise this wee gem of an apartment enough. Absolutely spotless and the quality of fittings throughout was exceptional. OK it's a studio but for a couple it's more than big enough, very private and the location is perfect. The weather was better than forecast, only one wipe out day, so very pleased with our stay at the Park View


Home from home

This is the second visit we have made to this apartment and it won't be our last. It is a home from home. It has everything we need. Wifi, iron, hairdryer, dvd, sky.... the list is endless. We have a dog so the small garden is brilliant. We come straight out of the apartment and into the centre of bowness we don't have to use the car if we don't want to.

Mr Swan

A convenient spot for all Windermere has to offer, yet still provides easy access to places further afield.

Mr Murgatroyd

Mr Padley

Ideal holiday property for a couple. Enjoyed a very pleasant week with everything within walking distance of the apartment. Property was very clean and in good order and parking right outside.

The location of the flat was excellent, Bowness town was within a few minutes walk. The standard of the flat was also very good, very nicely decorated and well equipped. We particularly liked the provision of a washing machine which enabled us to do some laundry during the week (so less of a chore when we get home!).

Mr Barfoot

It was good to be back at Park View. Since my last stay there have been some nice cosmetic changes to both the interior and exterior of the property, which is to the credit of the propriortor . I look forward to visiting again over the Xmas period.

Mr Carr

The apartment was perfect for our needs. It was warm, clean and private. The kitchen was well equipped with every appliance you might need and the washer/dryer was a real bonus as we had a very wet week. Instructions for all electrical appliances were in one drawer. The bathroom was spacious considering the size of the apartment and the shower was great. The lounge was comfortable and plenty big enough for two. We will certainly be using it again if we return next year, which we hopefully will. I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Mr Shanks

Mrs Gregory

The location of the property was ideal, only minutes from the centre of Bowness and lovely and peaceful at night. The property was clean and compact, ideal for two of us and a small dog. The patio doors opened out onto a secured enclosed garden with patio furniture, lovely for sitting out in the late afternoon sunshine.

Mr Raffles

Little Gem for a great week

I booked this apartment based upon the price, location, photographs and the other reviews I had read on Ta. Our only concern was that it was pet friendly and whilst we are dog lovers and have owned dogs we currently do not have one and we were worried about the potential 'doggy smell'. We need not have worried. Upon arrival we found a spotless, clean apartment with no smell of animals. It was so clean I found it hard to believe it was pet friendly. I do agree that it should be listed as a studio apartment as the bedroom is split with a wall that come across 2/3 of the way with no door but that does not matter when only two of you are staying. The apartment is extremely well equipped with a kitchen not out of place in a 3 bed house. All the appliances are top notch and nothing cheap. For holiday rental we were delighted with the standard. Its location is fantastic, close to the centre of Bowness ideal for all shops, pubs, restaurants and the lake. Another plus was the key lock on the wall meaning you could leave your keys every night without worrying about losing them...in closing, spotless, very well equipped with good standard equipment, ideal location, will definately return.


everything you can want

the cottage was ready when we arrived it was very clean its the second time we have stopped and we booked again for next year the cottage is only 5 mins walk to the lake and all the pubs and places to wine and dine load of short and long walks

Comfortable & close to all we needed

Excellent Service.

Spotlessly clean,everything we needed included, comfortably furnished.

5 minutes walk from Bowness centre, 10 minutes to the lake. Great for using the lake steamers as a bus service. Bus pick up point at Lakeside, we didn't use the car all week.
Plenty to do in Bowness, shops, restaurants, cafes, pubs.

The lighting level was lower than we liked and we found it difficult to read without augmenting the lighting. You are working at the cooker and sink in your own shadow. We would recommend considering installing under cupboard lighting over the work surfaces and providing a reading lamp in the lounge area.


A great find

This little apartment represents budget accommodation but size and budget isn't everything. What impresses when entering the apartment is the level of cleanliness and the fact that nothing seems tired or worn. After a few minutes in the apartment you begin to notice other good things: the fact that you have Sky TV, remote control lighting, a washer dryer and a dishwasher. But none of these things are fitted just for the sake of looking good on the brochure: everything is excellent quality: the washer/dryer is AEG and the dishwasher is Bosch. The owner of this place has really made an effort to make it not only welcoming but also a comfortable stay for a week or much more.

When we stayed, during the big freeze of December 2010, a water pipe burst somewhere outside which caused no inconvenience except for a loud hissing of water. On contacting the owner, he visitied the property, rectified the problem and offered 'a large discount' if we ever wanted to book again.

Better and cleaner than most hotel rooms and yet a fraction of the price.

Oh and I forgot the location. Perfect.



After reading the previous reviews, i was looking forward to a lovely clean well positoned cottage, and i wasnt wrong, this place is beautiful, so well looked after, and so comfortable. January in the Lakes was cold, but the cottage was so cozy with it remote control fires, and having sky tv was a bonus on the first and only rainy day we had on the Sunday. All in all its a really lovely place to stay. So close to everything you will need.


Ideal for a cosy holiday for two in a great location

Great little property within walking distance of all amenities, very cosy and well appointed. Would happily return here and would have no qualms in recommending it to friends and family.


Excellent pet friendly accomodation for a couple

The apartment is small but was well equipped with everything you need for a comfortbale stay. The kitchen is fantastic. The secure garden is also a great benefit for dog owners owners like us.

The only point I would like to make is that we feel this should be classed as a studio apartment rather than one bedroom. The lack of a door into the bedroom because everything is open plan makes it more like a studio apartment. We only mention this so that you're not disappointed on arrival

Other than that, this a fantastic place to stay in a great location. We would definitely book again and recommend to friends.

Disappointed with location

My husband is disabled (ie walks with 2 sticks and sometimes uses a wheelchair) and before booking I ensure we are on one level, have walk-in shower and access is suitable. On this holiday we found there was a very steep hill leading from the apartment to the town which was totally unsuitable for my husband either with his sticks or his wheelchair. I mentioned this in a review I completed and was told by one of your staff to expect hills in the Lake District! I am aware that the area is hilly but I am also familiar with Bowness and knew that it is quite flat by the lake and park. The address of this apartment being park view I thought we were on to a winner. We did cope with the holiday but with difficulty and enjoyed ourselves. The apartment itself is lovely. What has upset us is the attitude of your staff when we mentioned this problem and as a result I am very hesitant about booking another holiday with your company.

Great Base For The Lakes

The property is only small,but was a great base camp for a week away with only a short walk or drive to most places.It has all modern ammenities but does not have an open fire. Very clean and very well presented would definately return for a future visit.

Very nice well equiped everything for a good holiday nice central location .only one niggle no door to bedroom if one person got up early other person was disturbed by noise maybe a thick curtain would solve the problem then it could be pulled back during day otherwise no complaints just a good holiday in a well presented property really enjoyable
