“Great location”

A lovely apartment, very modern and high spec we thought. Nice for families as plenty of space in the lounge. We'd stay here again. A parking space is a great addition to this place is parking is hard to come by in Windermere.

“Stylish but not clean, very disappointed!”

Apartment was in great location, close to train station and shops, bars, restaurants, etc. I expected the apartment to be stylish and very clean based on the previous reviews and photos, but sadly this wasn't the case. So first day we were there ended up having to clean it to habitable standard, as apparently had previous occupants, who had wrote similar in the visitors book. The previous comments in the visitors book were very positive, so I can only assume that the owners have 'lost' their usual cleaner, and the replacement is terrible? Beige carpet stained and marked, kitchen utensils, pots and pans dirty with dried food etc, grease coating kitchen cupboards, beds smell musty, bathroom surfaces and floor dirty.
Sorry Jane & Darren but this is what we found. I hope this is addressed as the apartment is stylish, and in fab location, so could be as previously stated, a 5 star experience, however, our stay was definitely only 2 star at best...

“A good 'home from home'.”

I stayed at this property with my parents (double room), my 5 year old and 1 year old (twin room). There was enough space in the twin room for the travel cot to fit in between the 2 beds for my 1 year old. We had a very pleasant stay there. Supermarket close by, chippy next door, and various restaurants, although because of time of year, we had to book a table. Across the road is a short walk to Orrest Head (viewpoint).
My only negatives are:
+ one of the single beds was very squeaky
+ no bath (for washing little one)
+ the apartment was very clean, but after my youngest bum shuffled down the hallway, + she had dirty clothes
+television very high on the wall (but that's me being very picky)

Stayed here 22nd March 2014 for three nights. Very spacious clean apartment. Ideal location for Orrest Head, Windermere village and a short walk to Bowness. Would certanly recommend a stay here. The car parking space is a bonus also.

“Lovely clean apartment, great for those rainy Lake District days.”

What a lovely apartment, within easy access to Orrest head at 783ft right out your back door taking 20 minutes to the top. A lovely little walk for a great view over Windermere. Caxton house is in a Great location for shops, cafe's, restaurant's, pub's and supermarkets. A short stroll away being the lovely little village of Bowness which we walked to a few times (10/15 MINS). A few rainy day were spent just chilling in the apartment which the kids enjoyed as there was a Xbox, games and some dvd's . Everything you need for a comfortable stay. A few miner points, something wrong with the aerial reducing the signal greatly when it was raining ( which was quiet a bit). I know it's not the most essential part of a holiday in the lakes but for my teenage daughter it is, that would be the internet, it would have been useful in the wet weather, and having to take your own bath towels, hand towels and tea towels. Having said that I would recommend and return to Caxton house hopefully very soon.
