  • “We really enjoyed our stay at Bellflower Cottage.”

    It felt homely and was a nice place to relax after a busy day. Loved the log burner, the deep bath and the big comfy bed. I was a bit worried about not having allocated parking but always managed to get a space outside. Was also an easy walk into Windermere. Would highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely week!
