My wife and I are both retired and split our time between England and Spain.
The cottage (Ryebank) has been in the family for more than 50 years. In 2013 we decided to renovate it and rent it out for holidays. It is in excellent condition throughout and has a tranquil, light and airy feel to it. Its location is so convenient for Bowness-on-Windermere: an excellent base for exploring the Lake District National Park with its magical lakes, mountains, fells and delightful countryside.
When we visit the cottage we enjoy the walking, eating out and the excellent pubs. What a vibrant and exciting place the Lake District is nowadays. There is so much to do in this wonderful location. Time for you to visit!!!
Changeovers are handled by Mark and Emma who live nearby. They do a brilliant job.
This is our third season. We have enjoyed high occupancy rates throughout and extremely positive feedback from all our guests. We were delighted this year when VisitEngland gave it a Gold Award for the second year running in recognition of its exceptional quality. Most of our bookings are arranged through Owners Direct (no booking fee) and our local agents but Airbnb has provided a few bookings as well.
