fit the bill

  • 3 of 5

Booked the cottage very last minute for one night while traveling north. Landlord James was accommodating and responsive and the price was right. Cottage was very small for our family of four and the decor uninspiring, but everything was clean and seemed in working order. The view out the windows is of an alley. Parking is difficult in the area so the garage was a major bonus. The surrounding area is lovely. I would not have wanted to stay long term, but it worked for what we needed.

Lovely cottage in the centre of Windermere

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage which was spotless when we arrived. We stayed with two couples and I can say we had enough space. Brilliant location for Windermere and surroundings. We really enjoyed it and we will hopefully be back one day.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location this lovely cottage has everything you need for a visit to the Lakes, ideally located in the centre of Windermere, pubs, restaraunts , shops all within a 5 minute walk, the Lake is only 20 minutes walk away. Really impressed with the decor and layout of Gamekeepers and will certainly stay again.

Cosy Cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this cosy cottage in Windermere. There were two couples sharing and we found the location perfect. Close to the train and amenities (including the award winning pie shop!) which was ideal because we were travelling without a car. James was always prompt with his responses and very helpful. Great self-contained facilities to make our stay comfortable too. Property was clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend staying at this cottage.

A little piece of Heaven.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week in this lovely, cosy, welcoming cottage, and cannot recommend it and its owners James and his wife enough. they are very helpful, thoughtful owners, communications are always responded to asap. The cottage has all that you could possibly want or need for a comfortable stay, a real home from home. It is close to the main street of Windermere and all its amenities, but the cottage is situated in a nice little nook, making it quiet and peaceful. This is the second of James' rentals that we have stayed in and both of them have more than lived up to our expectations, which is why I have no hesitation in recommending James and his lovely rentals.
