First time visiting the Lakes - the scenery took our breath away!!!
The Floss is set in a beautiful & peaceful location, but within a ten minute walk to Lake Windermere or Bowness which has many restaurants & bars.
The Floss is decorated & equipped to a very high standard, we wanted for nothing.
The cottage is set in the owners gardens which are kept so beautifully.
We can highly recommend this superb cottage we had a lovely week & will definitely return.
We had a lovely week away at The Floss for our first wedding anniversary and Val and Ron were really kind and helpful! The cakes on arrival were delightful after a long journey and the kind gesture of a card and some bubbles to help us celebrate our special occasion were above and beyond. Michael was really helpful throughout the booking process and communication was clear and he was quick to respond to questions. We had a gorgeous week in the Lakes and visited our favourite places in Ambleside and Grasmere (for the best gingerbread in the world!) and we also explored some new places. The location of The Floss is perfect to reach lots of other locations and Bowness is just a short walk down the road. We visited Hilltop (a childhood dream) and even braved the climb up Helvellyn! The Floss was clean, perfect in terms of space for us and it had everything we needed. Excellent quality and we will definitely be back again!

Have visited a number of times. Always had a wonderful stay. Will keep going back. Easy access to Windermere and surrounding areas. Would highly recommend the floss.
This was our 3rd stay at The Floss, we loved it so much the first time, we keep coming back! It's a perfect retreat for 2, and everything has been done to a very high standard. It's welcoming, comfortable & cosy, with everything you could possibly need.. The location is great, as you have Windermere right there, and then Bowness not even a 10 minute walk down the road. We are walkers, and there are some great ones from the door step, so no need to get in the car if you don't want to. Bowness is fabulous, with a great mix of restaurants & bars, and cute shops! Val & Ron are lovely hosts, and Michael is a pleasure to deal with, when arranging your booking. It's our favourite bolt hole, and we'll be back again!!! Thanks for everything, Ellis family!!!
Lovely cottage, with really good facilities e.g. kitchen had everything we needed. Perfect size for a couple and felt very comfortable.
Ron and Val were really friendly and welcoming cake and tea was a really nice touch!
Location was nicely convenient, walking distance between Windermere and Bowness so didn't feel that not having a car was a problem at all.
Would definitely like to stay again next time we're up in the Lakes.
