The only problem with Bowfell is that it's located at the top of a 'VERY' steep hill. This is not mentioned in any of the information and could be a real problem for anyone who is not in the best of health or like us, did not have a car! Despite this, it's only a ten minute walk into Bowness.
The apartment was immaculately clean and well maintained, with beautiful gardens. Lots of places to eat and drink in the village and town. Frequent boats and buses and a Ferry across the lake for 50p per person! (pedestrians)

Hi Julie, thank you for your review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Bowfell. It's perfectly positioned for exploring Bowness and all it has to offer isn't it?
Regarding the steep hill we'll review the cottage information, I hope it didn't cause you too many problems!

For anybody that is unable to walk up a steep hill and outside stairway then it is not for you. But the apartment is really nice, the view from lounge window over the trees to lake is fantastic, one of the best apartments we have stayed in .

Tip if you are unable to cope with hill take car to Windermere plenty of side streets to park and get open top bus down to lake

The cottage is ideally located for exploring the lakes, and comfortable after a long day walking. Ideally suited for a couple. Town is a steep walk back in places but closer than we thought and we soon got used to it. The grounds are gorgeous, parking good. Recommend a couple of small suitcases rather than one large as there is outer staircase to reach the apartment. On the whole we highly recommend.
