    We enjoyed the quiet location with a view of the lake. We thought although the cottage was mainly clean, we had one little issue as the kitchen area, utensils, cooker etc could have been cleaner as one of the party has coeliac disease, so we needed to ensure that everything being prepared was highly cleaned (to avoid cross contamination). We enjoyed the walk into the towns and the nearby walks, especially down to the lake side. We would recommend this to someone wishing to use this as a base in a quiet location. We had a lovely week. Thank you.

    Gone Sailing is the ideal base for exploring the Lake District. If you don't want to make a meal yourself, both Windermere and Bowness have a great selection of restaurants. The outlook from the cottage is wonderful, in good weather we could have sat there all day! The cottage is equipped with ample radiators that make even the coldest, wettest evenings cosy.

    This was my third visit to Gone Sailing in a year - so it obviously has appeal. A peaceful and relaxing location with great views down to Windermere I would have given it full marks throughout, but for the fact that it doesn't have an ice box, after all a G&T isn't the same without some ice. That being said, however, I'm sure that I will be back; ice or no ice!

    We had a lovely time here. Everything you could need was provided, including a fantastic nights sleep owing to the very peaceful location. We would love to return.

    2nd visit this year and already booked for next year. The only thing it lacks is a freezer box for the ice cubes!

    The accommodation is very good overall. The only dissapointment was the general lack of cleanliness, especially in the bathroom: the toilet & shower had not been cleaned to the expected standard; in the kitchen, the frying pan & oven treys were still covered in thick grease from the previous guests use. We still enjoyed a wonderful week & would stay there again, but felt this needed to be brought to your attention, as it is potentially a health hazard.
