“A Gem Of A Find!!!”
Reviewed January 28, 2008

Just about to give up on Bowness after looking at some grotty places. When we stumbled apon Stockghyll Cottages.Its small but warm and inviting just 3 rooms with en-suites.That is then matched by the new owners who couldn't do enough for the guests.Situated just outside the centre but less than 5 min easy walk in.The rooms are not the biggest but warm,v.clean with a fresh feel.The views over lake Windermere are something else to wake up to.The breakfast was yum and no pressure to be up the crack of dawn like some places.With most the breakfast produce locally sourced.
Ask to see the waterfall at the end of the garden.If the new owners don't make a feature of it they'll be mad.

  • Liked — The warm friendly feel

Stockghyll Cottage is about a 5 minute walk from Bowness and Lake Windermere. It is situated overlooking fields with a short walk to the Lakeside. The house is cosy with just 3 guest rooms which makes for a warm and friendly atmosphere. Breakfast was excellent and our room, although small, was welcoming, clean and comfortable. The owners were hospitable, friendly and helpful and their 2 cats were gorgeous! Would stay again.
