    Wonderful to have parking outside the door. Very convenient for shops and restaurants and there are some outstanding restaurants very close by. Convenient for buses and boats . Lovely vies from the sitting room with the advantage of a balcony as well as a garden? Unfortunately it wasn’t warm enough to sit out. Very comfortable and warm property which is very nicely furnished. I would warn that those with mobility issues might find the 2 flights of stairs to the upper sitting room, a challenge but of course there is a bed sitting room on the ground floor with a bathroom and kitchen. There are lots of good walks from Bowness which are not too high but which still afford great views. The higher fells are not too distant for the more intrepid. We greatly enjoyed our 2nd visit to the Heights and would certainly stay again.
