We had such a good time at this gorgeous cottage. Its really close to the shops and restaurants and it was lovely for the family to get together. I was celebrating my birthday and the owner made me an amazing gluten free cake. Would like to come back for my birthday every year!

Beautiful cottage in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this fabulous cottage. Heidi has decorated this cottage superbly and it has everything you need. The cottage is on the main high street which Is handy for the little shops but parking was an issue, although Heidi gives you a parking permit to park in the car park nearby for free, and you can use it in any car park around the Lake District. Heidi kindly gives you a list of the ones that excepts the permit.

I say it's in a great location because Lake Windemere is right down the road, the mountains are up the road and everything else is within a short drive or you can take a ferry, boat or obviously walk! I highly recommend visiting Hawkhead, Grizedale Forest, Ambleside and Wray Castle to name but a few.

Oh and there is a lovely chip shop just over the road called ' the littlest chippy' fantastic chips and it's cheap.

Thank you Heidi for a fabulous stay X

Relaxing Windemere

  • 5 of 5

Spyri cottage clean and comfortable, a home from home. It had all you would expect from self catering accommodation in a very central location. Supermarket, places to eat, coffee shops and parking were all within a few minutes of the cottage. It was central for the Lake District which was great for visiting the area. We will be back to enjoy this cottage again.

Spyri Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Spyri Cottage. The property was nicely decorated and very cleaned. The fact that it is so central also allowed us to just walk to different restaurants for dinners and it was a nice walk to Ambleside. Highly recommend this place to a family or a group of friends.

Warm and cosy

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property - warm and welcoming. It was very good for a couple of mature women on a shopping spree as there is a double basement bedroom with its own ensuite and, on the first floor, another double bedroom with bathroom. It was also nice to have a TV in our bedrooms and a good size TV in the sitting room. The cottage is perfectly placed for the shops and good walks.

I had great pleasure enjoying my stay at spyri cottage ! I loved it so much I immediately extended my stay. The cottage boasts everything shabby chic and the lovely owner Heidi had thought of absolutely everything, we wanted for nothing. The comfort, cleanliness, coziness of the cottage begs me to go back again. Immediately on your doorstep are all the amenities, perfect, especially when you have been walking dogs all day, you just roll out of the cottage and restaurants are on your doorstep along with bistros etc. I had the lovely pleasure of meeting Heidi the owner as I popped to grasmere to visit her coffee shop which I then learned boasts 6 stunning luxurious lodges ! We also received a discount for eating there ! We saved a fortune as included in your package is a parking permit for your stay along with 4 hours free parking each day anywhere in the lakes.

Spyri cottage and Heidi's Grasmere lodge are perfect locations, check out the websites you won't be disappointed !
