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 England

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).


Excellent! 4.4/5 -

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

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

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.

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

Cute flat in great location

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We enjoyed our five night stay in the cottage. The kitchen was very cute and the flat size was perfect for the two of us. The main part of the flat is up a flight of stairs but the bathroom and washing machine are on the ground floor and the bathroom was cold so anyone having issues with going to another level to use the toilet especially at night may not be comfortable here. There is a parking space but getting to it and in and out of it is very tight and is more suitable for a small car. It is a great location with groceries, restaurants and lovely walks all with in walking distance. We met Paul who was very helpful with local information.

Long weekend in October

Verified Stay

Fantastic little cottage in a great location, 30 seconds from shops and short walk to the lake - as pictured. Very clean and tidy upon arrival and well furnished with a welcoming style. Warm and comfortable despite cold nights even after turning off two of the storage heaters. Will definitely recommend, great 3 nights.
