Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for 2 nights and it was just what we needed, it is fairly compact but enough room for our family and we really enjoyed the location and being walking distance into Windermere. The stairs have a door on them so perfect for keeping our toddler safe, and also keeping the noise from the bedrooms. Was a great stay and would recommend this cottage.

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here last week for 2 nights with my boyfriend and younger brother. The cottage is lovely and cosy and also very clean - the bathroom is great with a lovely big shower! The open garage was also great as you have a guaranteed place to park at the end of a busy day exploring.

The area is very pretty and the cottage is in a good area to explore the surrounding area - it is a bit of a walk to the lake but we enjoyed it! We have no complaints at all.

We would love to stay again next summer for longer.

Thanks James :)

Great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing short stay. We were very happy with the location of the cottage. Owner was very helpful. The cottage was perfectly situated in the middle of the town and close to all amenities. The cottage has private parking, however, make sure before your arrival that the owner reserves the space for the whole period of your stay.

Quaint little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely little cottage right in the centre of Windermere, ideal for either a day in Windermere or a walk to Bowness to see the lake, or take a cruise of the lake like we did.

Restaurants get booked up early for meals so my one tip would be to book well in advance.

The cottage as all the mod cons you would need.

Two bedrooms up stairs 1 double and 1 with twin beds.

The double bed is really high though good job we are quite tall, and even then I struggled.

The bathroom is downstairs if the open plan kitchen diner living room.

The underfloor in there was lovely.

All in all we had a lovely 2 day break with the family.

Fantastic 2 nights spent in the Lakes

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from 2 nights away in the Lake District with my wife and our dog.

Been to the Lakes before so knew the area well . The property is right in the heart of Windermere itself so really convenient if on foot but also very convenient if like us you have a car as the property has its own pull in garage space .

It is really well equipped with everything you would need as a home from home stay. Although in the heart of the town it's still very quiet and peaceful . Can't fault this at all and will definitely be hoping to book this property again when returning to the area.
