Clean comfortable and very easy to use

  • 5 of 5

We were travelling with a dog so it was important that the place was easy to keep clean which it was. Our dog had a 'bed kennel' underneath our bed which meant we could make sure she was happy at night. The furnishings were robust but comfortable and very tasteful - we thoroughly enjoyed staying here.

Clean and had everything you need for 4 people. Cottage was close to town, shops and pubs. Garage parking was useful.

Great stay and would return again

Thank you James

Great little base for heading into the lakes

  • 4 of 5

A great clean cottage, very well located for all you'd need in Windermere and then a good base for exploring further.

The only downside to the property is that the parking is very tight particularly if you have a large car. We weren't helped by a van blocking us in one morning. Other that that the place is fine.

Well kept heaven. Close to all amenities , the cottage has everything for self catering.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights during Easter. James did not give us an opportunity for any complaints. We found the property neat and tidy, TV in each bedroom in addition to Sky connection in the living area. My 15 year old daughter loved the cottage. If we come back to Lakes, definitely this will be our choice. Thanx James.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is about 50 yards from the centre of town, perfect location. Stocked with every amenity you could need. Bed is a little high so if you are elderly I think you would struggle to get in but it was fine for us and very comfortable. Parking is an added bonus. James was always available if needed and responded to messages very quickly. Would very very happily return here. Thank you James.
