Owners very helpful and quick to reply to any messages sent.

Excellent location great base for exploring the Lake District. Bonus that cottage has parking as many others do not.

Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

comfy cottage, very close to town centre

  • 5 of 5

Really great cottage (small, but well equipped), with the bonus of having off street parking. We were here for the weekend and found it to be really comfortable and just what we were looking for. Had great, friendly communication with James when we booked and all was as described/expected.

Charming gamekeepers cottage near center of town

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with the location and condition of the property. It was updated, near everything; the 2 bedrooms worked well for our party of 3, and it was very comfortable. The town of Windemere is incredibly charming. The Lake District has been on our list, and Windemere did not disappoint!

Enjoyable stay in a comfortable cottage in Windermere

  • 4 of 5

The location of the Game Keepers Cottage, was just excellent. So close to the Main Street of Windermere. The cottage was well equipped and clean. Even had a garage to use. Appreciated having a washing machine whilst on holiday. Only negative comment is that it would have been nice to have had a heater for our use.
