About Carole Tunstall

Hi, we are Carole & Mark the owners of Lakestone Cottage in Windermere. We loved the Lake District and always look forward to our stays in our lovely cottage, enjoying cosy nights in with the log burner on. The property was totally renovated in October 2011, having new and modern appliances throughout. Windermere is a great place to visit and stay, enjoying the fantastic views, walks, shops and restaurants. We hope you will come and stay in our wonderful cottage and enjoy all the Lake District has to offer. Carole & Mark

Why Carole Tunstall chose England

Fantastic location, central to all amenities all within walking distance, beautifully presented throughout. Great for exploring the Lake District.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is a 5 minute walk to the centre of Windermere and 10 minutues to Bowness on Windermere which is great if you fancy a short stoll to the shops and restaurants. Great for hill walking in surrounding areas and boat trips around the Lake.

Perfect for a weekend away

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Lakestone Cottage on Friday evening - it was very dark, cold and wet. When we entered the property it was so warm, cosy and welcoming - just what we needed after getting drenched bringing all of our bags into the house.

The house was gorgeous! we loved everything about it - especially the bath! We visited the Windermere Christmas Markets when we stayed which was lovely!

I could not fault anything about the house, we loved it!

Thankyou Carole

Lovely cottage close to everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped cottage close to all amenities. We were very comfortable even when the weather was dull. Plenty of towels, good beds and an outdoor area which was a real sun-trap in the evening. A very enjoyable week sightseeing. Especially enjoyed the slate mine!
