“Charming cottage with ideal location”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2020

Loved our stay at The Floss, easy to find and in great location of Windermere and Bowness. The Floss had all the amenities you could have wished for and was spotless. We could have easily spent a whole week here to explore the area and hopefully will be back in the future.

“Amazing little gem in the heart of the lakes”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2018

We had a fabulous stay in a little cottage that was fab. It was spotless and very cosy. The lovely cakes and milk for a cuppa on arrival was a nice homely touch. As stated only 10 mins walk into Bowness but as the cottage was so well equipped we ate in most nights. The full size bath and all mod cons were a lovely surprise .our hosts were so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back and we have already told others how it's a little gem.. only problem with that is more people will want to stay. 5 star review and thanks for a lovely week
