A wonderfully cosy, beautifully decorated apartment on the doorstep of the Lake District. The apartment is well situated with a number of fabulous cafes, restaurants and bars nearby. Bernard is an excellent host and the thought and care he’s put into ensuring his guests have an enjoyable stay really shines through.

Bernard’s place was a lovely little base for walking in the lakes. It was easy to get to so many great places. The kitchen was ideal for cooking a meal after a day out walking. Bernard was an excellent host and the communication was great. Thank you

Stumbled across Bernard’s apartment while looking for a base for Climbing Scafell Pike with a few friends. You will not be disappointed choosing Bernard’s apartment, in a prime location with all the amenities you need. Moreover, Bernard was a super helpful and friendly host who is responsive and willing to help.
I would recommend 🙂

Zubin _ May 2023

Bernard was very responsive and accommodating to our request. The apartment is in the middle of town and a good base to explore the lakes. It’s modern, clean and has good amenities. Just be warned the stairs to it are steep and parking nearby is a bit of a pain.

Stuart _ August 2023

This was an amazing place to stay for a visit to the Lakes – it was easy to get to the main places of Beauty. Bernard is an excellent host – very responsive and helpful to all questions and queries. The flat is immaculate and very well appointed – clean, tidy and perfect for our needs. it was very spacious and comfortable – a lovely place to relax after lots of hard walking up a few of the local mountains. Not only that, but amazing value for money too. Highly recommended.

Jacky _ June 2023

Clean and well-apportioned 2 bedroom apartment with all the amenities. Friendly and responsive host. Do beware that it’s up the second floor on a relatively narrow flight of stairs!

A very well laid out and well equipped apartment. It suited our family of 4 very well. Very clean, had that ‘like new’ feeling throughout. Location was very convenient – parking took a little planning but we always manged to park on the street outside overnight. Bernard was very welcoming and checked that all was going well during our stay. We would stay again and recommend it to others

Joanne _ April 2023

Excellent space for hosting family between Christmas and New Year. The accommodation was perfect in terms of size, layout, location and quality. Bernard was a fabulous host – very proactive and extremely quick at responding to the questions I had prior to arrival.

Robyn _ March 2023

Honestly, it was such a lovely home, so homely and it had everything you could possibly need. Bernard & Gillian went above and beyond, after travelling we arrived quite late and Bernard was waiting to show us inside and show/ tell us everything we needed to know. It was my sons birthday and they had left him a Lego magazine much to my sons enjoyment and a lovely little touch of Lindt chocolates. Heating was very warm and felt cozy, Bernard told us there was a heater to plug in and face to the bathroom which made that very warm too. Lovely people, lovely place, literally everything you could need. Comfy bed and pillow. 5 stars 🙂

Lynda _ April 2023

Cannot say enough great things about Bernard and Gill and their apartment. Every room was spotless and had everything you needed. Bernard and Gill went above and beyond as hosts – recommending places to go and being so lovely and kind. The apartment is in a fantastic central location but is quiet and a great and homely base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District. We’ll definitely be back! Lynda
