Pristine cottage in perfect location

5 of 5
We had an incredible week staying at Nutkin Cottage. Despite the cold, drizzly weather, our holiday was made perfect by the warm, perfectly clean cottage in the most convenient location to Lake Windermere, the World of Beatrix Potter, and a variety of shops and restaurants. The kitchen had absolutely everything you could possibly need (such as not just 1 but 2 cafetieres for this coffee drinker!), there's a washer & dryer for easily doing laundry, and we had no problems with our arrival, parking, departure, or receiving the quick refund for the damage deposit. This gorgeous property equates to an all-around stress-free holiday. I highly recommend!!

Beautifully presented and homely

4 of 5
Before we even arrived, Anne-Marie made us feel welcome with her emails explaining everything. When we arrived, the cottage was clean and beautifully presented with lots of homely touches. The cottage is in an ideal spot, close to the centre but not too noisy. Had a wonderful time and would highly recommend. Thanks Anne-Marie.
