Beautiful cottage and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect stay in this beautiful cottage, it more than met our expectations. The cottage was clean, warm and very well maintained. The owner responded in a timely and friendly manner with any questions we had. It is located on the doorstep of numerous restaurants and cafe bars. We would definitely recommend it to family and friends and have already booked another week in 2018.

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, comfortable cottage in the heart of Windermere. We took our two teenagers and had such a wonderful time here. Perfect location, easy access to the station, shops, and great restaurants. We were able to park very close to the cottage in the local car park - a permit was provided and it could be used around the Lake District. The cottage was well equipped for cooking and washing clothes, the beds were very comfortable, and bathrooms and showers were excellent. Wifi is provided and a lovely stove fire which was very nice after exploring the Lake District. There was even a spacious back garden with a lovely table for sitting/dining outside and for our little dog. Absolutely no complaints - we will definitely return to this place as it was the perfect base for exploring the Lake District. A home away from home!

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
