This terraced cottage situated in Windermere sleeps eight people in four bedrooms.

Little Acorns is a delightful stone terraced cottage situated in the town of Windermere in the Lake District National Park. Set over four floors, this cottage sleeps eight people in four bedrooms, consisting of two second floor doubles, one third floor king-size double and a first floor adult bunk room. The cottage also has two shower rooms (one on second floor), a kitchen, first floor dining room and a sitting room. Outside there's off road parking for two cars, a front terrace and a rear patio with furniture. Little Acorns is an excellent base for exploring and visiting many places within the Lake District National Park.


The property's best asset is it's location in the heart of windermere. For the rest it felt very tired and in need of some TLC. Upon arrival it was not especially clean - hair in showers, mould in washing machine, curtains hanging off their poles - and the rooms were a lot smaller than anticipated. For 8 adults I would be tiny - we were 2 adults and 4 children and it was tight. The two parking spaces at the rear of the property are sufficient for small cars, but the access road and space available would be impossible for a car of any size. The rental agents acknowledged our complaints but I do feel that the photos of the property are misleading. Disappointing

We loved the Little Acorns as our home away from home in Windermere. It has a beautiful location.
