About Joanne Bell
I live in Windermere, and have been running Mrs T’s for 6 yrs. I enjoy meeting people and providing a home from home experience.
Joanne Bell purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Joanne Bell chose Windermere
Mrs Tiggywinkles really benefits form being in Windermere as it central and has both train and bus station within walking distance. Also you can walk to Bowness and jump on a ferry and this will take you on Lake Windermere. There are great restaurants on your doorstep and our local supermarket Booths. It is set back away from the main street so has little noise, yet within a stones throw away from the town centre. Mrs Tiggy's has private parking for one car.
What makes this Apartment unique
The property benefits from private parking, also being so close to the train station you could leave your car at home. It is bright and modern with all the benefits of being home from home. The best thing about this property is your ability to walk from your front door to find lovely walks, restaurants, local shops, and all the other benefits that come with being in a Great Location!!!

Windermere and the lakes
Mrs Tiggiwinkles was lovely. Very well presented and comfortable. Only a very short walk to some lovely restaurants and all the delights and services of Windermere. I have no hesitation in recommending this property and plan to return in the future.
The perfect cottage!
Beautiful cottage, immaculately clean and really cosy. We felt completely at home during our stay, the hosts had thought of everything. Wonderful location and quiet surroundings. Definitely plan to stay again and would highly recommend!

Very well presented property over 3 floors in a central location in windermere with all important parking space .
Beds were made up upon arrival and extremely comfy.

A cosy home from home and we will definitely be back again soon.
We had a wonderful week in this property - it is perfectly located for exploring the area and there were plenty of eating places within walking distance. Great communication with owner - would recommend.
Brilliant place to stay in Windermere
This is a fantastic cottage, fresh, clean, spacious, warm and homely. We were here for 2 weeks recently and loved it. There is a narrow entrance from the main street but it's easy enough to navigate and then you can park in space 7. Mrs Tiggywinkles entrance is round the back but in the living room it has great views of the hills. When you open the door there is a cupboard on the right for walking boots, you climb the stairs and the first floor has a lovely living room/dining room, a bathroom, and a well equipped kitchen. On the next floor are the 2 bedrooms, the bigger one has a very comfy double bed with an ensuite, and the other one has 2 single beds. There was just the 2 of us so we used the spare bedroom to keep our clothes and cases.
The house is in the middle of Windermere so is in easy walking distance to the shops and the restaurants. Sainsburys Local is less than a minute away! You can also walk to Bowness in 15 mins so the house location is perfect.
Joanne is a great host, gave us everything we needed, refreshed everything after the 1st week and was really non-intrusive and friendly.
This is a great place to stay!

About the local area
Lake Windermere is perhaps the best know area in the Lake District and Windermere village itself is about 1km from the lake. The lake stretches from Waterhead, near Ambleside, to Lakeside at its narrow southern end, over 10 miles in length and the largest lake in England. Wooded slopes dotted with cottages and houses line its shores, while the water itself is usually busy with ferries and yachts.
Windermere is not as busy as it’s near neighbour, Bowness-on-Windermere, but has its own charms and attractions. It has excellent amenities and a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars all within easy reach. The village has good public transport links with its own train station and bus routes.
The Lake District boasts a host of lakes, tarns and meres. However should you wish to visit the sea, Arnside (possibly has the best chip shop ever!) is only 18 miles away, with Grange and Morecambe Bay just a little further.
As well as a National Park, the Lake District received worldwide recognition in 2017 when we were granted World Heritage Status by UNESCO! Something we are extremely proud of.
