    “Brilliant location.”

    It's half way between windermere and bowness. Very spacious house, you could easily fit 3 families of 3 in the house. The garden is private but not enclosed as there is a path down the side of this house to the parking and drive. Our dogs were fine but if you have a little escape artist you might want to keep a close eye on them. The property has everything you could need. If I was being super, super picky, maybe a couple of small vegetable knifes might be good, but not essential. There isn't a ...

    It's half way between windermere and bowness. Very spacious house, you could easily fit 3 families of 3 in the house. The garden is private but not enclosed as there is a path down the side of this house to the parking and drive. Our dogs were fine but if you have a little escape artist you might want to keep a close eye on them. The property has everything you could need. If I was being super, super picky, maybe a couple of small vegetable knifes might be good, but not essential. There isn't a tumble dryer but you really don't need one as your clothes dry very quickly on an airer in front of the hall radiator and there's still plenty of space to get through. If you're looking to stay in winter you'll be nice and snug as the heating system is amazing. The house was lovely and warm when we got there. It was also nice and cool without the heating on too, if you're staying when it's hot. (we had aixture of weather when we stayed) All the beds and bedding are really comfy. We all slept amazingly. Extremely clean. There are signs around the property to tell you how everything works and when the bins go out etc, which was really helpful as everything was to hand. Sound doesn't travel in the house which is really good when you have a toddler that doesn't sleep in past 6 and likes to shout your name at the top of their voice, it didn't wake anyone else up. All bedrooms are big enough to fit a travel cot in (you'd have push the beds together in the twin room to still have a walk way) someone mentioned in a review that the house is a bit dated, the house is exactly as the pictures when we went in May 2022 we didn't think it was dated at all. Our dogs settled really well, which is unusual for a first night when we stay away. We travel to the lakes a lot and this house was just fantastic! We don't normally stay in the same property twice, but this one, we will be coming back again to! Thank you to the owners for providing such a wonderful house.

    Dear guest, thank you so much for choosing to stay at Ravenscroft. We're very pleased that you had a lovely stay and grateful that you took the time to write such a positive, comprehensive and helpful review. It always make letting our house out feel worthwhile when people have such a good time and find things to their liking. We will certainly act upon your suggestion about improving the range of knives available. The washing machine is actually a washer-dryer but we will add some extra instructions nearby about the drying settings. Thanks again and hopefully you'll choose to come back when you next visit the Lake District. Property Owner

The property

This traditional Lakeland residence is conveniently located only a short 5 minute stroll mid way between both vibrant villages of Windermere and Bowness together with the shores of Lake Windermere. Convenience and space makes Ravenscroft a perfect base for sociable gatherings and family holidays at any time of the year with each of the four large bedrooms enjoying en-suite bathroom facilities. The reception rooms are also spacious and gracious. Relax in the garden and on the terrace after a day on the fells. == Accommodation in detail Park either in your private parking spaces or on the lane and wander through the garden to a traditional entrance porch. A spacious entrance hall leads into the drawing room with large windows on two sides, polished floor boards and relaxing furnishings. The dining room is fit for any formal gathering and from here is access into the well equipped kitchen. On the ground floor is a utility room with 5th WC and then upstairs to the first floor. On this level are three bedrooms: one with king size bed complete with solid oak bed and en-suite shower room; a further bedroom with king size bed and a third bedroom with twin beds, one with en-suite shower room and one with en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath. The stairs continue to the top floor king size bedroom complete with en-suite shower room. Outside the garden wraps around the property with a raised patio with garden furniture. Location The shore of Lake Windermere is less than a mile away. Windermere village itself is a charming and vibrant village at the heart of the Lakes. Only a short drive from the M6, and with good train links from Oxenholme, couples can easily meet up here and will find the village a fantastic Lake District self-catering base for trips throughout the National Park. The friendly village centre is a delightful community to settle into - tasty cafes, local shops, excellent Booths supermarket, traditional Lakeland pubs and plenty of picturesque Lake District walks from your door. You must walk up Orrest Head during your stay; the views over Lake Windermere are spectacular. Walk or drive a mile from your Windermere self-catering apartment, just down the road to Bowness, and you'll find even more to entertain - a wider range of restaurants, shops, pubs and trendy bars, plus the boating activity of Windermere lake shore. Why not take a cruise on the lake to Ambleside or Lakeside?
