10/10 Exceptional

Great Location Excellent Stay
We had an excellent stay and from start to finish the hosts were extremely friendly and informative. We had a great room on the ground floor at the front and was able to park our car just outside the room on the road at the front of the property with a space saved for us by the host, who moved his car to give us the space. We were messaged by the hosts for our approximate ETA but be wary if you have an I phone as I did not get the message until I disconnected from the car. Location was great and just a short walk down the hill into the centre of Bowness. Breakfast was excellent with quality ingredients and cooked to order in a very relaxed environment.
