“Lovely Cottage Great Location”
Reviewed 17 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We arrived early but found the cottage already ready which was a nice bonus
Rowan cottage is well positioned 2 minutes from all the shops and bars in Bowness but on a side street next to a fabulous Italian Restaurant
It was lovely inside well maintained and with all amenities you would need
We managed to lock ourselves out on day 2 but thanks to Tracey and Phil from the company we were soon back inside
Only thing preventing 5 stars was the front bedroom was quite noisy from traffic passing on the main road even though this was at least 50 yards away.We decided to sleep in the backroom after the first night
One suggestion would be a light outside the front door as quite tricky getting key out of lock safe in the dark
Had a great stay loved the cottage and bowness is always good and would happily stay at Rowan cottage again

“Perfect location, close to restaurants and shops great for days out and walks in the lakes!”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have stayed in Rowan cottage 3 times over the past few years and it continues to impress us! It is a perfect location for those wanting to explore the south lakes, so close to many walks, waters and activities. We also really enjoyed being so close to great pubs and restaurants after a long days walk there is nothing better than a short walk from the house to a lovely range of country pubs with local ales and great food. The house is also fully equipped with everything that you need to cook at home too if you'd prefer. We will definitely be back and will continue to recommend it to friends and family! Thank you

“Another excellent stay”
Reviewed 11 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Love this little cottage. Everything has been thought of. The internet is fast and most important for me- no second hand pans. The non stick frying pans really are non stick! Dishwasher works a treat!

Bowness is perfect for the lakes, loads to do in the area and if you are snowed in there is a Sainsbury's, Tesco and Coop within walking distance. Small cinema 50 yards away. Italian restaurant next door.

It's quiet and warm and has parking in the street. Parking does get a bit hard at the weekends.

We took two dog's and the house is very Dog friendly. We will be back next year no doubt. The Lakes can be expensive for food but there is a large Aldi in Kendal, worth a visit to stock up.

“VERY COMFORTABLE COTTAGE”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Just returned from a weeks holiday in Rowan Cottage. The cottage is very well furnished and equipped, everything you need, really a home from home.cosy lounge,big window seat,lovely big dining room again with window seat,fully fitted kitchen, with large utility room outside. It has a lovely courtyard garden very private, lovely on a sunny day with a couple of beers.

The bedroom is a good size, with a large kingsize bed, good bedding and pillows,plenty of storage. Bathroom has a lovely big bath, with plenty of hot water for a good soak.

The cottage is very central, just off the main street,across from the Cinema, there is an Italian restaurant on one corner, Cantonese restaurant on the other, both served excellent food. A car parking permit is supplied with the cottage.
We had a great holiday, and would thoroughly recommend the cottage and would not hesitate to go back, our wee Westie Florrie loved it,and had a great time as well.
