Very good choice

  • 5 of 5

As described, the property is in a quite road few minutes drive from Windermere train station, all that you need for a short break is there, very clean and well maintained. I would very much recommend this property and hope to revisit soon. Owners were very pleasant and welcoming! In the short visit we hiked up to the bottom of the Great End and the top of Ill Bell. Had lunch at Kirkstone Pass Inn, would recommend even if you only go there for the views. Also enjoyed few drinks at The Albert (Robinsons) and dinner at Hyltons.
