About paul

Hi I am Paul Taylor I live in the Lake District in England. I live with my wife Shona and 3 great children and sheep dog Jess. We enjoy living and working in one of the most fantastic areas in the world and we make the most out of living here and couldn't imagine being anywhere else. We take pride in our cottages and want you to enjoy and experience what the Lakes have to offer.

paul purchased this cottage in 1997

Why paul chose Windermere

I built Cobblers Cottage from an old Cobblers shop that was origionally on the site.

What makes this cottage unique

Cobbler' Cottage is very central to everything in Windermere - with lots of interesting shops and fabulous local restaurants and lively pubs. Cobbler's Cottage has the convenience of having it's own parking (which is rare).

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous little cottage, ideally situated and all the mod cons you'd need. Lovely and clean, perfect size for a week away. Lake Windermere is a half hour walk away and you're right in the middle of lots of lovely shops, restaurants and bars. We loved that the cottage had an allocated parking space meaning we could leave the car and just walk place without worrying about getting parked. Would definitely go back.

Lovely property in the heart of Windermere

  • 5 of 5

I came here for a short break to complete the Windermere one way swimming challenge. This was perfect for my needs, a great location, quiet at night yet close to plenty of amenities. I would certainly recommend staying here!

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very nicely finished and the owners have made good use of the space. It was very cosy and homely and hasd everything you needed. We would have given this 5 stars had it not been for the bed. It was not in keeping with the rest of the furnishings and made the room quite claustrophobic. We felt it would be better with 2 single beds that could be joined to make a double without the monstrous head/footboards.

The position of the cottage was excellent, being right in the centre of Windermere village and just a 10 minute walk down into Bowness.

Despite our reservations re the bed, we would love to stay here again.

Cosy cottage in a convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage is perfect for a visit to the Lake District. It's location is ideal, just behind the main street in Windermere and its amenities. Bowness is within walking distance and is close to the main road to Ambleside. An excellent choice.

Good location

  • 3 of 5

The location of the cottage is ideal. The cottage is well equipped but we missed having a tv in the bedroom.
