  • “Was very happy with the property, it more than lived up to expectations.”

    HOWEVER, we did not expect that after being told we could not have an early check in, to then find that on arrival at 4pm to have to empty a dishwasher that was still hot ! In the email I received for leaving the property it did stipulate to put dishwasher on the final night before leaving ? ...

    HOWEVER, we did not expect that after being told we could not have an early check in, to then find that on arrival at 4pm to have to empty a dishwasher that was still hot ! In the email I received for leaving the property it did stipulate to put dishwasher on the final night before leaving ? As a note for the owner, the bedding, mattresses and pillows were below par for the price point of the holiday and the duvets were not big enough for the beds….this needs addressing as does the fact that the WIFI is only accessible from the kitchen (completely unacceptable)…there were also no hooks to hang wet towels on in the bathrooms. For people wanting to eat in, they need more pans and kitchen utensils

    Thank you for your feedback further to your stay with us. The wifi in the property does have boosters on every floor, and we suspect now that previous guests had made changes with these, but had we known during your stay that this wasn't working properly for you we would have been happy to investigate. We usually have feedback about how comfortable the beds are, and that the kitchen is very well equipped, so this will be looked at after your comments. The dishwasher was left on and only run just before your arrival to ensure that you were aware that all of the crockery, cutlery and utensils had be sanitised to an appropriate level for your arrival because of COVID. For wet towels in the bathroom, towel rails are provided instead of hooks. Lakelovers and the owner of the property take on your feedback, and again, thank you for this. We will hope to welcome you again in future. Property Owner

The property

Found in the centre of Windermere in the heart of the Lake District is this stunning townhouse, Prospect House, set over four floors and boasting lavish style and décor. This four-bedroom property can accommodate up to eight guests on an amazing adventure to the Lake District, being in the centre of the action and just a stone's throw from the shores of Lake Windermere. Returning to the comfort of the striking sitting room after a rigorous ramble, featuring a rugged slate feature wall and an impressive, suspended woodburning stove, you can relax on the sofas amidst the bold décor as you watch the TV. Choose to unwind in the second sitting room found on the lower ground floor instead, offering a large plush sofa to curl up on and another TV, great for quiet moments catching up on your favourite show or family film nights. While on this floor, find a beautiful bedroom home to a super-king-size bed, which can be a twin on request, with a large sofa, dressing table and plenty of storage, served by the shower room also on this floor. Back on the ground floor is the gorgeous kitchen/diner, decorated with soft, neutral hues, and boasting a quality selection of appliances, including a large range cooker, for cooking up tasty meals for the group to be enjoyed around the elegant dining table. Make your way up to the first floor to find two further bedrooms, each home to a king-size bed and benefitting from a state-of-the-art en-suite shower room. Completing the property is the second-floor master bedroom, not only enjoying plenty of space, dual aspect windows, a king-size bed and ample storage, but also served by a stunning luxury bathroom with a freestanding bath for long relaxing soaks, a walk-in shower and a his 'n' hers basin. A patio area outside offers a charming spot to start the day with breakfast alfresco, before stepping out onto the streets of Windermere to begin the day's adventure; discover local cafés and restaurants to enjoy delicious food at along with pubs for well-earned drinks after a long walk, all on your doorstep! Lake Windermere is just a stone's throw away, head here for a world of activities; choose to relax on a Lakes cruise up to one of the other lakeside towns, hire a boat to go at your own pace admiring the scenery and various islands, take kayaks and canoes out onto the water or try some exciting watersports with a local activity organiser like water-skiing and paddle-boarding. Embark on a walk around Windermere's shores and nearby villages, or get your bikes out to explore the area further, ascending one of the surrounding hills to experience breath-taking views over the water and mountains beyond. Family fun can be had at Brockhole on Windermere, an activity centre offering archery and mini-golf as well as Treetop Lake District where visitors must traverse a rope obstacle course in the trees! Children and adults alike are sure to love The World of Beatrix Potter, a popular attraction in the neighbouring town of Bowness-on-Windermere bringing the beloved children's author's characters to life. Cruise up to Ambleside to enjoy a ramble up to Stock Ghyll Force or head south to Lakeside to visit the Lakes Aquarium. The Lake District is a walker's paradise with many peaks and fells to explore and hike up, with nearby challenges including Dollywaggon Pike, Cunswick Scar, Gummer's How and Helvellyn. Experience the Lake District in style with a family staycation to Prospect House.
