So close to the really nice pubs and restaurants etc owner was lovely and really helpful
Was a bit of an odd quirky room on the top floor, sink was out in living area rather then in the bathroom.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great with everything within a 5 minute walk.
This place does not offer bed and breakfast but you can use the kitchen if you want.
Friendly and helpful owner
No breakfast and the Coffee wasn’t refilled. Bedroom not cleaned the second evening
We received a warm, friendly welcome. The property was central and close to restaurants, shops and the lake.
First impression- stale smell, dirty, cluttered. The bedroom was small. The bathroom was a broom cupboard & there were electrical issues with appliances switching on and off at will. The electrical nightmare was very concerning. Tea/coffee facilities were inadequate. No lounge area to relax in, away from the bedroom.
The place needs a lick of paint. It’s unfortunate they don’t do food at all. There were no toiletries in the room. My door lock was broken as well. The garden needs a very good tidying up, cuz there is a room with a garden view that is not very pleasant. Electricity needs sorting out, too.
Situated in the conservation area, the 17th-century Holly Cottages is in the centre of Bowness-on-Windermere and only 5 minutes’ walk from the lake and boat trips. Local shops, restaurants, bars and cafes are also within a 5-minute stroll. Holly Cottages has a relaxed home-from-home feel, and the owners are happy to offer advice on where to visit. Each individually styled room at the welcoming Holly Cottages has Hubble Bubble Organics handmade soap, a TV and tea/coffee facilities. Most of the en suite rooms have views of the mature gardens.
