The apartment is absolutely nice, cosy and clean. We've got everything we need in the house and it's right in the center of Bowness, surrounded by good restaurants and stores. Peter and Ali are being helpful and reachable all the time! Great stay here.

This accommodation is situated through an alley, at the top of some steps, above the shops in the heart of the town. The pizzeria at the bottom of the steps was very nice and friendly with great food. It is very close to Lake Windermere. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We loved staying in this delightful place.

5 mins walk to the Pier where you can take the lake cruises and enjoy the awesome view. Garden is lovely with beatiful settings.

The Admiral's Nest is a well-situated apartment in central Bowness on Windermere. Had everything we needed. Peter gave good instructions for dropping off luggage and left out a parking permit which made it easy to use the nearby 'pay & display'. We ate at the Bodegas Tapas Bar and had takeaway fish and chips from around the corner opposite the Beatrix Potter Museum. Some lovely local walks. Thoroughly recommend.

We had a lovely stay at Admiral's Nest. The accommodation was immaculate, comfortable and in a brilliant location. We always like to stay somewhere as nice or nicer than home and this didn't disappoint.

The Admiral's Nest is perfect for a visit to the Lake District. Peter and Ali were great hosts and were so welcoming. The apartment is great and conveniently located. Plus it comes with great little amenities even we didn't realize. The back deck is perfect for relaxing and reading and you are steps away from amazing restaurants. We definitely would stay here again on our visit to the Lake District.

Response from Peter:
