This beautiful home from home situated in the heart of Bowness and a stone throw from Windemere is the perfect base for all adventures in the lakes. We first stayed here in August 2013 and have been back every year without fail. Georgie and Mark who run Sandown are amazingly welcoming natural hosts and very soon felt like old friends....

I had read the reports about damp in some rooms, but also saw the replies that this had been sorted. We had a great week at Sandown, the house was roomy, comfortable and clean, great location as we could park all our cars and we all had our own bathrooms so that was great. Read the reviews about damp but...

Although some guests had seen this problem and they have our direct contact...

Great location ! Lacked in cleanliness through out the house . Various rooms were damp in the building which caused some members of the group to be ill especially with children in the house . The kitchen needed addition or new facilities .

Although we are very sorry indeed and apologise profusely to the few guests staying in Sandown in September who had some issues, before we post a full explanation as we have done on the other review about this issue, as the owner of Sandown we feel it is important to mention that is was actually these guests who informed us...

Visited with friends, very central location only 10 mins down to the lake. You can hear quite a bit of outside noise when in bed but it wasn't too much of a problem. The bedroom was not overly large but the bed was so comfy you did not want to get up.

We booked a two night stay direct with the owners, it was a lovely stay and both myself and my wife agree we had a lovely stay and will be returning, great hosts and great breakfast. You would not be disapointed if you stayed here.

A beautiful setting and a really friendly and helpful owner. The B&B is on the road leading between Bowness and Windemere. We went for a meal in Windermere and walked the distance in about 20 minutes, so a great location! There was plenty of parking, and the owner came straight to the door to welcome us, show us to our...
