    “The House was fantiastic with fantasitc views - which was as expected and as advertised.”

    We had a faboulous stay and hope to come back. I do have some constructive negative feedback though - which can easily be remedied! 1. There is no WiFi. This is not mentioned in the advertisement. I appreciate staying silent on something doesn't mean it's there, but in this day and age you should state that there is no WiFi as it's more unusual for it not to be present than otherwise. I have to work when on holiday often and of course this also means there is no ability to watch BBCiPlayer, NetFlix or anything other than live TV - making the lovely TV a waste of space for people who don't want to watch the rubbish you generally get live (sorry but it's true). I agree though the view also makes the TV almost redundant! 2. There was no welcome pack - I am not sure if this is normal but not providing such necessities as T Bags, coffee, sugar and milk is rather mean in my book; 3. The Hoover. I like to keep things tidy and clean when away - so I hoovered up mid week to find the hoover stank to high heaven - so much so that I needed to open all the windows and doors and stand outside for bit. It needs either a new filter or the existing filter needs to be washed occasionally! 4. The shower unit over the bath - the seal on the bottom of the shower door is BLACK. This is not acceptable nor is it excusable. I suggest you make sure this is replaced or at least soaked and cleaned regularly. 5. The door in the main bedroom is marked as 'not openable'. I wondered why this is the case? It's the only fire exit from that end of the house and I was not comfortable with that - non of the windows open to the extent a person could get out if they needed to. 6. Last bu not least - there was only one toilet roll in each bathroom for a potential family of 5. i also think not providing a few psare is also pretty mean - we had to go out and buy more including tea and coffee and ended up having to bring it all back with us. Look this is a faboulous property and we'd like to go back again and make it a regular visiting hideout - but I hope you understand that these comments are very annoyting and could easily be fixed. I completely understand if the owners don't want to include WiFit becuase of some particular reason - but if this is the case then please say so in the advertisement.

    We would like to thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at Primrose Mount. We are glad to hear you had a fabulous stay and found the house to be fantastic. We really appreciate all feedback whether positive or negative so thank you for going into detail here. Regarding WIFI, this is something we have never advertised and have always found that it was a great time for guests to switch off from home and work without it. We understand that people rely on it more and more everyday especially since the lockdowns so we will look into perhaps getting a package in the near future. We are glad the view kept you otherwise entertained though. Regarding a welcome pack again this is something which is more difficult with living away from the property and having it agency managed. We have taken your feedback on board and have arranged with the Housekeeping team to leave a Tea/Coffee pack out which will ensure you can make a cup of tea/coffee upon arrival as we understand after a long trip this is just what is needed. Regarding the hoover we have passed this onto the Housekeeping team as we purchased a new Henry so are surprised this is smelling already but will ensure the filter is replaced ASAP. Also with the seal we apologise this hasn't been picked up prior to your stay and will be looked at. Lastly the Housekeeping team have always provided just 1 toilet roll per toilet however we thank you for this feedback it has been passed on also. Thanks again for taking the time to fill in the feedback form and we have taken all your comments on board and hope we can welcome you back in the future still. Kind Regards - The owners and the Lakelovers team! Owner relations


The property

Gaze out to Lake Windermere through architect-designed windows, relax in a peaceful enclosed garden and enjoy only a 2 minute stroll to Bowness village and the lake shore from this modern detached residence. Primrose Mount takes a gently elevated location on the edge of Bowness, to take full advantage of the unforgettable lake views which can be enjoyed from almost every room. This is a place to spend quality time with family or friends; the light and airy living space includes a formal dining area that's fit for special occasions. Take your breakfast, lunch or pre-dinner drinks through sliding doors to the garden terrace, and the view will take your breath away. == Accommodation in detail Private parking for 4 cars. Entrance hall with wood-effect flooring. Spacious open plan living space with large panoramic windows and lake views, sliding doors to patio and separate door to the garden. Separate modern kitchen and utility room. Ground floor super king-size bedroom and king size bedroom with lake views, plus additional single bedroom. Ground floor bathroom with power shower over bath, plus additional shower room / WC. Location On the eastern shores of Lake Windermere, Bowness is a sophisticated Lakeland village with a wealth to explore and enjoy. Stroll to the lake shore to hire a row boat or power boat, or take an elegant cruise on one of the Lake Windermere steamers. Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly to Ambleside and Lakeside; a wonderful way to explore without even using your car.There are several excellent restaurants in Bowness village, The Postillion Restaurant is a long-standing favourite for stylish dining, while the Porthole and Bodegas & Sol puts a contemporary twist on the tapas style. There are also plenty of traditional Lakeland pubs, both in the village centre and the surrounding countryside. Windermere Golf Club is just outside Bowness village, on the way to the Lyth Valley. This area is also renowned for gentle but very scenic walking, with a wealth of acclaimed Lake District country pubs to choose from at the end of the day. Close to the village, you'll find Blackwell, The Arts and Crafts House. This impressive property takes a stunning position overlooking Lake Windermere, and has a range of interesting exhibitions. Join the A591 to Ambleside and Grasmere, and you can explore the homes of famous Lake District poet, William Wordsworth. Another great idea is to take the car-ferry crossing over Lake Windermere from Bowness, to visit the former home of Beatrix Potter in Near Sawrey, and the picturesque village of Hawkshead.
