    “What a beautiful property!”

    It was just perfect for our family. Had everything we needed. I really liked the fact that there were plastic cups for my daughter to use too. Tea, milk and biscuits on arrival too. The bedrooms were a great size and the beds were sooo comfy. There was a travel cot for our baby and a lovely high chair ready for us. It’s the perfect location too. Just a short walk to the town where everything is. I loved that fact that we didn’t need to book a restaurant we could just walk into ...

    It was just perfect for our family. Had everything we needed. I really liked the fact that there were plastic cups for my daughter to use too. Tea, milk and biscuits on arrival too. The bedrooms were a great size and the beds were sooo comfy. There was a travel cot for our baby and a lovely high chair ready for us. It’s the perfect location too. Just a short walk to the town where everything is. I loved that fact that we didn’t need to book a restaurant we could just walk into wherever we wanted to eat and get a table. Also dog friendly too. We had staff coming over offering water and dog treats too. We will definitely come back to Ivy Bank. We were also chatting to the neighbours in the cottage at the back who were lovely and spent the time chatting to our daughter. I will say that parking is tight. But we found that if we reversed down the main drive and drive on to the drive forwards it was better for us.

The living room is open-plan and situated on the lower ground level, with a dining area and kitchen, wonderfully appointed for preparing those tasty evening meals together. Nestled on the ground floor, just off the hallway is the bathroom, followed by a double bedroom with its very own en-suite. Two further bedrooms rest upstairs on the first floor. Outside you have off-road parking and access to all the shops, pubs and eateries within Windermere and Bowness.
