Fantastic location, central to all amenities all within walking distance, beautifully presented throughout. Great for exploring the Lake District.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is a 5 minute walk to the centre of Windermere and 10 minutues to Bowness on Windermere which is great if you fancy a short stoll to the shops and restaurants. Great for hill walking in surrounding areas and boat trips around the Lake.

Great location, cottage had all you need.
Loved the deep bath and Carole is so helpful and friendly. Cottage is just like pictures and quality fixtures. Loved Lake District will come back one day from Australia.
Lovely well equipped cottage
Lovely well equipped exceptionally clean cottage. Cosy but we'll designed and laid out and plenty of room for four... Nice little touches of providing all the little extras such as cleaning products hand wash and the basics spices in the cupboard. Unlimited logs for the fire was a bonus and were used. Only negative was the walk into Bowness was slightly longer than advertised.
Lovely cottage, great location.
This is a lovely property in a really good location. The walk into Windermere is very quick and Bowness is an easy stroll as well. The cottage has everything you need for a short stay. The bathroom is beautiful! Carole was very helpful and easy to deal with. Recommended.
Thank you for your lovely review.
I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay and had everything you needed for your stay. I hope you will consider us again in the future.
Lovely cottage, close to Windermere and Bowness
The cottage was clean and tidy, nicely furnished and cosy with the wee wood burning stove, which was useful on the couple of grey days we had! The bathroom was very nice, with a lovely shower. The cottage was very close to both Windermere (less than 10 minute walk) and Bowness (15-20 minute walk to the ferry), making it ideal for getting out and exploring! The internet was pretty slow, but ok (we used netflix with minor occasional issues).
Overall we had a very nice stay and I would happily stay here again.
Clean, spacious, quaint.

Lovely Cottage in Windermere
This is a really nice cottage within 5 minutes walk of Windermere. It has everything you need to have a pleasant stay. The kitchen has all the appliances you could want if you like cooking, and the bathroom has a good shower and a massive bath. We arrived to spotlessly clean tastefully decorated accomodation and were very impressed with what we found. You also get the bonus of easy on street parking.
Nice place Carole hope to be back next year.
