On arriving at the property it was easy to gain entry with the instructions given. The property was spacious and well laid out, everything we needed was available to enjoy a few days away from towels and bed linens to crockery, glasses etc. A range of reading material and a selection of games. The location is brilliant with views of the lake and close to all the amenities Bowness has to offer, and also good value. We will definitely be making another visit as soon as we can. 😊

We enjoyed a lovely few days here as a big group it did not feel over crowded and the location is perfect for walks out into town but far enough away to feel away from the town and in the country. Would defo return. Also the lady who lives next door is lovely and enjoyed chatting to the kids on the balcony and sharing her knowledge of the area.

We spent 3 nights here the apartment was clean and tidy had all facilities right in Bowness plenty of bars shops etc... we went on a boating trip over to Ambleside the boating lake is right on lake Windermere and not even a five min walk to get to..Bowness is a beautiful part of the Lake District and we weren’t disappointed with anything. Sorry we never booked longer. Stunning scenery breathtaking views Will be going again.

The apartment was perfect for us. Clean and very roomy. John has been great with communication and even put birthday decorations up before we arrived (which I sent over a few days before). Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend. The location was fab too.

This property is in a great location for Bowness town centre on the edge of Lake Windermere but, unfortunately that's is all this property has going for it. The cleanliness and decor is terrible, we could not use the towels supplied and had to purchase new ones, the travel cot supplied was not fit for purpose and we, again had to purchase a new one. The ceiling in the lounge was falling down, all of the bathrooms were dirty and full of mould, the patio doors could not be opened and various panels of glass had blown. We contacted the owner who stated that the cleaner would visit us to give the whole house a deep clean but nothing was done. To sum up I booked this holiday to meet up with some friends we had not seen for some time and now, unfortunately when ever we speak of this holiday all we will remember is the terrible house we stayed in. So !!!! Do not use this property..........

For us, Watersidehome was perfect, overlooking Lake Windermere, with Bowness on the doorstep. A mile to the ferry and five minutes later we were getting tickets to see Beatrix Potters house, Hill Top. Location wise it could not have been better. Only fifteen minutes from Kendal (see the Quaker Tapestry, fascinating), thirty minutes to Keswick (Pencil museum and excellent shopping) we were right in the heart of the Lake District. The house itself is warm, welcoming and has everything you need. We had a bit of confusion over the fridge - then we realised there were two! The large garage area was a godsend for muddy wellies, dripping coats etc, plenty of room to hang things up whilst they dried off. We appreciated the TV digital package as most evenings all we wanted to do was collapse in front of the TV and rest our legs! Beds were comfortable, the three bathrooms ensured there were no queues, and the wifi kept the younger ones happy too. We will definitely return.
