  • Robert

    “Lovely spacious accommodation.”

    The house is well positioned for walks to Bowness or Windermere and the bus stop for trips further afield is a short walk away. The only improvements would be better quality towels, some of them were very small and thin.

Next door is the utility area, which has hanging space, a boot rack, and a washing machine where muddy walking gear can be thrown before relaxing in the sitting room. You can read by the bay window, catch up with loved ones, or watch the Smart TV in this lovely space, furnished with two cushioned sofas, a chandelier, and artwork. Oldfield House has four bedrooms, each with a wall-mounted TV and en-suite; choose from two king-size or a double on the first floor, and another double is located on the second floor.
