Had a lovely stay at helm cottages surroundings were beautiful, will miss the fresh air and bird chorus first thing in morning. The cottages themselves were furnished with all our needs and a good location to visit the lakes from, would definitely go back.

Small but well equipped, lots of storage, heated towel rails and outdoor line good for drying wet gear. Perfect for two. Lovely setting and very relaxed feel but be prepared for a but of a steep walk back from town, if you are reasonably fit it is fine. Very enjoyable stay, Bowness is great!

The cottage may be small but had all the requirements we needed. Situated in a very quiet area.with Great walks it is however located up a very steep narrow road that the wife found very difficult to walk up but don't let this put you off, once up believe me it's worth it.

This Studio had everything for 2 persons. First we thought we will miss the separate sleepingroom, but it was no problem.
