This is a great place. So peaceful. Comfy beds. Massive towels. Friendly welcome. Lots of little extras that make the stay better.
This cottage is in a beautiful location surrounded by idyllic countryside, with the coast nearby and visible en route. It has a very homely look outside, and inside it was just stunning - the perfect cosy, quiet, romantic retreat. It was just how we had imagined staying in a countryside cottage would be and more - frankly, we were shocked at how luxurious it was considering the very, very reasonable price!
Warm and comfortable inside with all the amenities you need, and with an amazing view from the kitchen window of the hills and woods ascending behind the house. There was even a balcony with deck chairs for when the weather is nice! We could see a little family of horses on the hill most days, along with sheep and cows, which was lovely. There was no unpleasant smell associated with their presence either.
Nearby villages and towns are within an easy distance for driving or walking (though I would be wary of walking along those narrow country roads!) and the food to be found therein was of extremely good quality. The people were very friendly and the views driving to and from various locations surrounding the cottage and beyond were incredible. Would recommend to anyone!
The cottage was perfect for a couple wanting a peaceful break. The cottage itself was beautifully furnished and the lay out made the most of the space available. It is situated not far away from some great hiking and walking, attractions and sightseeing of Cumbria. Chris and Mike are lovely people and left some goodies to add to the enjoyment of our stay. I would not hesitate in recommending this cottage.
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage. It had everything we needed for our family. Chris and Mike provided everything we needed plus a bottle of prosecco and key essential (milk, bread etc...). We definitely recommend staying for a great base to explore the South Lakes.
Summer nights at The Cottage Bankwood House In Kirkby-in-Furness was the most stunning time of the year. Another of our favourite 4 nights retreat. The stunning beauty and stillness of the night was de-stressing, we both felt restored and revitalised.
Everything you ever need to feel at home was provided (an Booths bread was very tasty).
Have your shoes at ready, you won't be short of the beauty Lake District offers.
We very much enjoyed our stay, Chris an Mike were very kind an friendly!
Would recommend Bankwood Cottage to anyone looking to unwind an relax!
You won't be disappointed.
Thanks again Chris an Mike for sharing your beautiful home!
