“Just Lovely!”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2019

The apartment was perfect for us. Clean and very roomy. John has been great with communication and even put birthday decorations up before we arrived (which I sent over a few days before). Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend. The location was fab too.

This property is in a great location for Bowness town centre on the edge of Lake Windermere but, unfortunately that's is all this property has going for it. The cleanliness and decor is terrible… More

“Excellent holiday home”

Reviewed 8 May 2019

For us, Watersidehome was perfect, overlooking Lake Windermere, with Bowness on the doorstep. A mile to the ferry and five minutes later we were getting tickets to see Beatrix Potters house, Hill Top. Location wise it could not have been better. Only fifteen minutes from Kendal (see the Quaker Tapestry, fascinating), thirty minutes to Keswick (Pencil museum and excellent shopping) we were right in the heart of the Lake District. The house itself is warm, welcoming and has everything you need. We had a bit of confusion over the fridge - then we realised there were two! The large garage area was a godsend for muddy wellies, dripping coats etc, plenty of room to hang things up whilst they dried off. We appreciated the TV digital package as most evenings all we wanted to do was collapse in front of the TV and rest our legs! Beds were comfortable, the three bathrooms ensured there were no queues, and the wifi kept the younger ones happy too. We will definitely return.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time out to review waterside. It’s lovely to hear to enjoyed the lovely Lake District and the property was ideal for you. Look forward to welcoming you back soon. Regards john

“Great location”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2017

Great location 2 mins walk to Bowness Centre. Good parking facilities. House ideal for 8 people could do with painting, shame the balcony on back of building instead of looking onto Lake

Owner's reply: Thank you for your comments and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The rear balcony would be great on the front , however it is ideal for the morning / early afternoon sun for eating out / coffee. Hopefully you made most of the front double patio doors off the lounge opening up to the lake view . We have re decoration and some refurbishment to the property due in November17 . We look forward to welcoming you back in the future should you visit Bowness again . Best wishes
