    Very clean, well presented and equipped property in the heart of Ambleside village. It was everything we hoped hoped for. Nice quite location, yet only 50 yard walk to the village shops. The beds were extremely comfortable and being a quite side street we were able to really relax. 3 good size beds rooms and 2 bathrooms, all to a very high standard. The only minor problem is common to all Lake District towns and that's parking. Fortunately the cottage came with 2 parking passes so once we managed to find a parking space we could leave the cars all day in the same space. We would definitely return here without a hesitation.

    Lovely cottage in excellent location. Good quality crockery and plenty of kitchen appliances, cleaning equipment etc. Lots of nice touches - games, books and walking guides. .Only one minor grumble - an additional hand towel in each of the bathrooms would have been appreciated. Love the wood burning stove - but bring plenty in winter - it’s a gobbler!

    Another excellent stay at Bowfell for Christmas. Great location and everything we needed. Would have been useful to know in advance that the cottage was decorated for Christmas as we took up lots of decorations with us as the description didn’t say.

    A great cottage, with everything you need provided.. all in walking distance of the local shops and restaurants and pubs.. and also you don’t even need your car to access many of the great walks in the area. Very impressive.

    generally very pleased with our stay. The building work next door was unfortunate, noisy and very dusty outside, but we had been made aware, and had compensation. Lucky with the weather! Some excellent restaurants locally, and stunning scenery.

    Lovely clean well equipped cottage---our only bugbear was the renovation of the adjoining terrace house. The workmen were very quiet but 9am on the dot , banging ,sanding, reroofing ,delivery vans blocking street etc. And the skip , crates and workmen vans meant there was never an available car parking spot outside the house for the whole week. There was ample parking in the normal carparks so we just paid for the second car.

    This was our second visit to Bowfell. The cottage is almost faultless - the mattress in the main bedroom is far too soft! The central position in Ambleside is perfect for local amenities and Ambleside is a perfect base for a fell-walking holiday in the Lake District. And the weather was kind too.

    We had a great stay at Bowfell - it is a very homely and has all the things you could wish for, but the cottage is looking a little tired in places. I was a little concerned that even though I had taken the insurance to cover any accidents, I still had to provide a £100 deposit! This wasn’t needed when we stayed last year! Small problem with parking as next door had a skip and 2 vans outside for the refurbishment- I was pleased to say they didn’t work over the Easter weekend as they were somewhat noisy. Overall though we had a brilliant time and were very comfortable - Thank you!

    We’ve stayed in many cottages in Ambleside as we visit regularly and they’re all largely the same. However our family all considered Bowfell to be extra special - more spacious, high end, well taken care of and loved. Clearly more than just a rental property to its owners. We’ll be back.
