Had a lovely stay at helm cottages surroundings were beautiful, will miss the fresh air and bird chorus first thing in morning. The cottages themselves were furnished with all our needs and a good location to visit the lakes from, would definitely go back.

Small but well equipped, lots of storage, heated towel rails and outdoor line good for drying wet gear. Perfect for two. Lovely setting and very relaxed feel but be prepared for a but of a steep walk back from town, if you are reasonably fit it is fine. Very enjoyable stay, Bowness is great!

The cottage may be small but had all the requirements we needed. Situated in a very quiet area.with Great walks it is however located up a very steep narrow road that the wife found very difficult to walk up but don't let this put you off, once up believe me it's worth it.

This Studio had everything for 2 persons. First we thought we will miss the separate sleepingroom, but it was no problem.

This is a lovely little apartment set in a wonderfully quiet location. Although the track leading to it is a little daunting first time you soon get used to it and other than dog walkers we never met anything on it. Everything you need for a short break is supplied and the apartment was very clean.

Helm Mint was an outstanding property for 2 people. All the facilities we could have asked for. We had 4 wonderful days and walking distance down into town was pleasant, walk home not so nice up quite a steep hill if not fit.
