Charming gamekeepers cottage near center of town

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with the location and condition of the property. It was updated, near everything; the 2 bedrooms worked well for our party of 3, and it was very comfortable. The town of Windemere is incredibly charming. The Lake District has been on our list, and Windemere did not disappoint!

Enjoyable stay in a comfortable cottage in Windermere

  • 4 of 5

The location of the Game Keepers Cottage, was just excellent. So close to the Main Street of Windermere. The cottage was well equipped and clean. Even had a garage to use. Appreciated having a washing machine whilst on holiday. Only negative comment is that it would have been nice to have had a heater for our use.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend. Great location. Lovely cottage. James (The owner) went above and beyond to make sure it was a perfect birthday holiday. More spacious than the pictures show. Garage is a great bonus and can fit large vehicles. If you have any food allergies I can also highly recommend Rusland Pool in Ullvaston. James suggested this to us, little gem. I suggest you try the award winning gluten and diary free sticky toffee pudding. All in all a great holiday. Will definatley book again.

Perfect Lake District Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at James's cottage in Windemere. It is in a great location, just off the main street, but also in a very quiet part of town. Parking was a big plus as Windermere is very busy in the summer. There some great walks nearby - Orrest Head & Brent Fell. We also went to Tree Top Trek which is a great experience and is only 10 mins away by car. The cottage had all the facilities we needed, especially a really good shower, which is a bonus after a hard days walking or swinging through trees!
