    “We loved the cosiness of the cottage, we have had a very comfortable stay!”

    The garden was gorgeous, and perfect for our dog, we weren't expecting this based on the listing so it was a nicer surprise! The location is perfect, short walking distance to windermere and bowness but tucked away enough to be private and to find easy parking.

    The garden was gorgeous, and perfect for our dog, we weren't expecting this based on the listing so it was a nicer surprise! The location is perfect, short walking distance to windermere and bowness but tucked away enough to be private and to find easy parking. Our only negative would be communication - we had no emails and no information online or at the cottage about arrival times, departure times, whether to take the bins out/ strip the bed etc. so we had to make a lot of this up...

The property

Ideal for a couple or small family, this lovingly renovated character cottage is situated just on the edge of Windermere village and is within easy walking distance of all the village shops, pubs and restaurants, so no need to use the car on a daily basis. There are plenty of things to see and do close by - Lake Windermere is about a mile away on foot for lake cruises, boat hire and water sports and there are numerous walks from the door including Orrest Head, School Knott and the Dales Way. Also ideal for those wishing to travel by rail as Windermere Station is only about half a mile away. Accommodation: A few steps across the garden path to the front door. Enter into the lounge where there is a partly slate-tiled floor and room to leave coats and boots. The lounge has open fire, flat screen TV with integral DVD player and iPod dock, free wi-fi and views out to the garden. Dining kitchen has a good range of units in a country cottage style with tiled floor and stable door. Upstairs there are two bedrooms - one double and one twin both tastefully furnished. The twin room has a Victorian feature fireplace, and both rooms have wooden floors and rugs. Family bathroom has curved bath with rain shower over, also hand-held shower attachment, basin and wc. The property is very comfortably furnished with tasteful colour schemes throughout, pretty fabrics, wooden and tiled floors in most rooms, and carpet on the stairs. Gas central heating and hot water. Outside: Good sized enclosed garden and patio area with furniture to the front of the cottage, ideal for relaxing in the evening after a hard day sightseeing or walking.
