Even in the Lake District houses with “lake views” are in very short supply. There are not many properties, particularly in Bowness, from where you can enjoy an outlook like this!

The location is excellent with only a 5 min walk into Winderemere. The lodge is in a quite area, with lovely views of the lake, comfortable and well equipped with good sized rooms. The decorated christmas tree in the living room was a nice touch. The bedrooms were excellent with really comfortable beds and the good supply of toys and books available were brilliant for our two year old granddaughter and kept her very well occupied. The bathroom/shower room is very spacious with plenty of hot water. Overall the property is excellent and I would definitely rent it again. Highly recommended,

We stayed at Lookout Lodge over the half term weekend and I must admit we have found a gem.
The location is great, being 5 minutes walking distance from the centre of town. The rooms and house overall were of good quality and I would not hesitate recommending this to any family who wants a base to stay in Bowness.

The keys were posted in good time. The instructions for the house were very clear and helpful. Location is perfect, easy walk to town, we never used our car. The house itself is great. Layout, furnishing, views all good - wish I could live there!
