We chose this apartment as it is one of the few being offered in the lakes districts. The apartments themselves are somewhat dated but are clean and comfortable. Parking on site was a bonus however we had endless trouble with the Wifi so if you are technologically dependant this could pose a problem. The landlady was welcoming and approachable and... More

Thank you for your review, I'm sorry you felt it was dated,we do redecorate and make replacements, every year.We use only quality furnishings, no flat packs.We are a 3 star grading and our price reflects this, however, considering the facilities we offer in a very expensive area,where property prices are not far behind London's, I feel we offer excellent value...

We visited the Lake District on a Bank Holiday weekend. Because of this we were badly delayed on our trip there. We kept good communication going with the proprietor throughout and everything went very smoothly.

We chose this apartment for a weekend university reunion. The apartment was clean and fresh. We found it very homely and warm with loads of space to spread out. The location was great for walking into town to shop and eat, and parking on site was very convenient. The price was really reasonable too. An enjoyable weekend all round. We... More

This is a response to the two identical reviews written word for word by the same person and published on the same day by that same person,I feel this was done on purpose to bring down our grading on TripAdvisor.

We had a girls' weekend away in the Lakes and decided to stay in an apartment rather than a B&B.

It seems reviews are split on this place and largely around the management and communication abilities (Note: this does not relate to an English as a Second Language issue). It would seem from some people who have previously reviewed when things go right, there is no issue, but when things go awry, problems arise. Having read some of the reviews... More

A pleasant apartment right in the heart of Windermere. Bedrooms, kitchen and living room are all comfortable and well equipped. Owners are friendly and helpful and having free use of local spa facilities is a nice touch. A great base from which to explore The Lakes.

“Be clear, very clear. Even when we were both on telephone and by email, we were shown to a lesser apartment then had to get into a debate. Also we were clear about contact by telephone as email would not be monitored then 'changes' were sent by email.”
