  • “We have used this cottage several times before, the previous time being March 20 at the commencement of lockdown.”

    At that time I sent you lots of information re the property, which was fed back to the owner. We hope upon returning to the property the issues would have been resolved, however some have not. ...

    At that time I sent you lots of information re the property, which was fed back to the owner. We hope upon returning to the property the issues would have been resolved, however some have not. The cottage has many positive attributes particularly its secluded location, with ample private parking, and fantastic views. This is spoiled however with the general cleanliness of the property. Upon arrival after four, and baring in mind the previous party had to leave at ten the property was not particularly clean with lots of dust on lamps, skirting boards etc. There is black mould in the bathroom on most of the silicone and black mildew on the ceiling. The master bedroom still has damp patches on the wall which I did report last time. Overall we did have a lovely family break, however for the amount we paid for the property, it’s condition and cleanliness should have been much better.

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.
