Laid out over three floors this mid-terrace cottage offers contemporary living that hides behind the cottage’s traditional stone clad exterior. You enter the property via a small porch and then step down into a great open-plan kitchendining room which is most definitely the heart of this home. A cosy living room with flat screen TV and DVD player is also located on this level and there is also a cloakroom with toilet. On the lower level you will find the master bedroom as well as the family bathroom and utility area which houses the washing machine and tumble dryer. On the first floor are two further bedrooms. \n\nBiskey Burrow is just a short walk from the heart of Bowness which is one of the most popular towns in South Lakeland. The bustling town which is frequented by locals as well as tourists has a great selection of individual and unique shops as well as a wide variety of cafés bars and restaurants. There is also an old fashioned cinema and The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction which families with children will adore. The shores of Lake Windermere which is the UK’s largest lake is also within a 10-15 minute walk. From here you can hire a boat or take a leisurely ride on one of the old steamers. You can also take a boat cruise to Ambleside or to Lakeside where you will find the Aquarium of the Lakes and the Lakeside-Haverthwaite Steam Railway. \n\nThe town of Windermere which has a good sized supermarket is approximately 1½ miles from Bowness. Windermere also has a train station with services to Kendal Preston Lancaster and Oxenholme. From Oxenholme there are services to London Manchester and Scotland which makes this a very accessible location even for those who don’t want to bring their car. The surrounding fells offer plenty of walking cycling and climbing opportunities and thanks to the great road network the whole of the stunning Lake District National Park is accessible making Biskey Burrow the perfect base for your Lakeland adventure.

    The cottage itself is lovely, the bedrooms are spacious, the shower was fantastic and having use of a washer and dryer was an added bonus. The cottage is in an ideal location both for the centre of town and for the rest of the Lakes which all makes for a perfect stay, however there were a number of issues mainly to do with the cleaning/maintenance of the property. Cleaning Issues 1) Cobwebs were evident in both the Dining Room and also the Master Bedroom 2) The fridge had not been cleaned properly and there was mould evident in the salad drawers with 2 live insects crawling around 3) The Sofa was filthy with liquid marks on the framework and the cushions themselves had crumbs on them. On lifting the cushions there were further crumbs on the sofa base along with a dirty tissue, sweets and some fries.The sofa also needs pulling out and the wall cleaning behind and floor cleaning underneath. 4) The floors had been swept or vacuumed but they had not lifted either the mat in the lounge or the kitchen area to clean below these. 5) When the floor in the utility room has been cleaned they had cleaned around the ironing board and not moved it to clean below/behind 6) There was a vast amount of dust and a sock behind the dryer - see point 3 below 7) The walls above the tiling in the kitchen area were dirty from splashed food and also the walls in the entrance and the door panel need wiping down. Maintenance Issues 1) 2 Halogen lamps out of the 3 present in the kitchen area were not working 2) The dryer extractor pipe needs a jubilee clip attaching to the vent pipe, it keeps falling off - I pulled the dryer forward to re-attach the hose and this is when I found the dirt behind it - the pipe falls off when in use, hence the build up of dust/fluff 3) The towel ring in the W/C is loose and needs tightening 4) The toilet seat in the bathroom is loose and needs tightening 5 )The TV remote for the satellite TV is broken and we could not access terrestrial during the evening 6) Kitchen clock batteries need replacing as do the batteries in one of the torches 7) The door to the bedroom floor is catching on the floor Suggestions 1) I would suggest replacing the knife block - the knives provided were useless and would not even slice a tomato 2) With up to 6 people sharing the one bathroom, I would have thought there would have been a hook on the bathroom door to hang your bathrobe, the bedroom doors had them but not the bathroom 3) Whilst I appreciate that we had use of a washer dryer, I feel that leaving 1 tea towel for the week for up to 6 people is totally inadequate 4) I would suggest attaching some anti-slip tape to the 2 rugs in the master bedroom - as soon as you stand on these you go flying! We actually placed them under the bed out of the way to remove the risk. The above is an honest review of our week in the cottage, some of the points listed are minor and there are also some suggestions on improvements that could be made. As I mentioned previously the cottage itself is very nice and comfortable and is in an ideal location and we had had a great week's stay. I'm not going to say the above ruined our week as it didn't. That aside the above issues were more of an irritation/frustration and are issues that shouldn't have arisen. I did not expect on my week's break to have to start deep cleaning the sofa before we felt comfortable sitting on it or have to clean the fridge before we could put food in it. I notice from comments in both the visitors book on the property and also the online reviews, that this is not the first time cleanliness of the property has been an issue.

    Another good stay at the cottage, some new furniture which is good. The only downside to the visit this time, previous occupants had been making curry and we could not get rid of the smell but other than that all was very good. Parking can be an issue but it’s a safe area to leave your car. All good!

    It's very nice cottage with amazing location, but there is problem with parking outside. And the roofs are a little bit lower.

    Lovely terraced cottage in a good location close to all of Bowness on Windermere's attractions. Very clean, well equipped kitchen, great shower and comfortable beds. A couple of things to note - there is no outside space at all at this cottage, and the upstairs bedrooms have sloping ceilings, so care is needed if you are tall!

    This accommodation was in a very good location, close to activities along the lake, shops and restaurants nearby. The only problem we found was the it wasn’t very clean, floors had crumbs and dust, food found between sofa and dirty cutlery. There were no bin liners or extra toilet rolls. Plus the outside bin hadn’t been collected so it was overfilled. I would recommend this place mainly because of location. The management of this property need to make sure they check the property before new guest arrive to ensure cleaners are cleaning the property.

    The cottage was perfect for our needs and had a great layout. Would definitely stay there again. Also the washer and dryer were a lifesaver.



    out of 10

    Very good value for a spacious cottage in a great location, well equipped in a quiet area but also close to the town centre. Parking on the road is limited but plenty of space on adjacent streets. Small negative points: the bathroom fan wasn't working and we had difficulty working out the TV (no instructions).
