    Excellent fully fitted kitchen with all the utencils required. Extremely clean,(thank you to the cleaners). The reason for only 4 stars is because the leather sofa in the lounge needs attention,it is very low, some of the bottom seats have lost their fillings, therefore has no support. Both the double bed and twin beds are uncomfortable, they need new mattresses When I booked this property I asked about the hill up to the house, as I have a lung condition and can't walk up steep hills. I was assured the hill was only slight, so went ahead and reserved the property. As you can imagine, on arrival at the bottom of Brantwood Road I was shocked to see how extremely steep the hill was up to the house. This definitely needs stating in the description. Because of this we had to use the car every day when we went out, even when only going down to the lake and shops, parking was very difficult because it was so busy. Otherwise, as stated earlier the house was excellent.

    I'm sorry that you felt that the gradient of the hill had been underplayed. To anyone used to scaling Lake District summits, that hill is indeed "slight", as it is short. I do understand that for you, however, that was not the case, and it was too steep for you to negotiate. We'll re-write the general description of the house to ensure that it reflects that the hill has a steep section. The brown leather sofa has not deteriorated. It was like that when we bought it, low, soft and squishy, which we find extremely comfortable, and is ideal for children. We realise that a low sofa doesn't suit everyone, and have provided a second sofa in the lounge area that is higher and more supportive. I do hope you used that sofa instead, as it should have better suited your needs. Mattresses are rather a matter of personal taste. We chose ones that suit us, and after staying at Lingmoor last week, can confirm that they are still comfortable for us. Thank you for your lovely general comments, especially about the cleanliness of the house. We'll make sure that is passed onto the cleaners. Property Owner


The property

A stylish and contemporary Bowness residence in a superb location, only a few minutes up the hill from the village and lakeshore, the elevation giving spectacular views across Lake Windermere to the fells beyond The elegant living space forms a great retreat for families or friends. Sociable areas extend to both a sunny front terrace and peaceful rear patio garden. You'll enjoy views from all 3 bedrooms, but it has to be said the king-size master is a particular treat. Kids (or big kids!) will also be chuffed to find a great little upstairs den. As well as being convenient for attractions and entertainment in Bowness, and of course on Lake Windermere, Lingmoor is also a great base for walking. A wide variety of routes begin on your doorstep, and the property backs onto Brantfell - a fabulous route with fabulous views as you climb. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 2 cars outside the property. Entrance hall with space for walking clobber, and leading to a ground floor shower room and WC. A few stairs lead to the open plan living and dining areas, with gorgeous chocolate leather corner sofa, woodburning stove and fabulous dining set up. The living space is flooded with light, and boasts both patio doors to the sun terrace and French windows to the rear patio garden. Large modern kitchen, also with access to rear patio garden. Another short staircase leads to the master king-size bedroom, double bedroom, twin bedroom, den and house bathroom with shower over bath. Location On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere and close to Windermere Golf Club, Bowness is a vibrant Lake District village with a wealth of attractions and appeal for all ages. The village has a contemporary shopping street, with supermarkets, delicatessens and everything you could need during a self-catering holiday in the Lake District. There are many family attractions in Bowness. From the famous 'World of Beatrix Potter Attraction', to row boats in the bay and mini-golf on the 'Glebe', you'll never be short of things to do with the kids. Windermere Lake Cruises also depart regularly from Bowness Pier to Ambleside and Lakeside - a great way to explore without taking the car. Lakeside is well worth a visit for families, as you'll find both the Lakes Aquarium and Lakeside & Haverthwaite historic railway to entertain you there. Bowness is probably the Lake District's liveliest spot for evenings out, and there are plenty of options for eating out in Bowness. For a stylish dining try The Postilion Restaurant. For a quirky take on tapas, try 'Lucy4 at The Porthole'. Or take your pick from a number of traditional Lakeland pubs serving real ale and hearty pub food. There are also a number of lively bars in Bowness, as well as the lake shore Wheelhouse nightclub.
