Views are amazing!!
A compact cottage, plenty of room for two adults, a squash for 4 adults. The cottage had everything that we needed and was in a great location. We had a few issues with the shower and wi-fi but the owner sorted them and refunded us some money for the inconvenience. Overall would return here.

Great location, beautiful cottage, recommended
We stayed in this beautiful cottage over new year and the owners had put up a Christmas tree for us which was a nice touch, made it feel homely. Cottage is all on one level, a living area, dining area and kitchen all in one. A wonderful view greets you each morning where you can see part of the lake. As it's set into a hill, you can get stunning sunrises and sunsets over the lake. The cottage has access to a private jetty and people where canoeing on the lake from a nearby cottage. It's a lovely quiet spot. Two well maintained bedrooms, one double and one set of bunk beds in the other and a high spec bathroom. The only trouble we had was with the heating system, we couldn?t get it to work in the kids bedroom so had to use the fan heater provided. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you would need for a stay here (utensils, crockery etc, they even left us some kitchen roll and washing items which was great. It s a little out of the centre of Windermere and the kids wouldn?t want to walk it. Bowness is further again but both are reached within 5 minutes by car. Highly recommend and we would love to visit again.

Fantastic Gem!
We stayed here as a family of 4. Children aged 11 and 8 years. The location is a little out of town. But the shops in Windermere are a short drive or 15 min walk away. And Bowness is roughly 30 mins walk. The facilities are ideal for what we needed. We did use the cooker! And we even completed the jigsaw (a really nice touch!). The property is located in a cute communal ground with two parking spaces. And a short walk down the drive will take you to the most idyllic private jetty out to Windermere! We skimmed stones, watched the boats and I even sat on the end and had a glass of wine :-) Beautiful! We saw a ?couple? of Pheasants! And even the deer! We used the property as a base to enjoy the local tourist attractions and travel further afield to the Ambleside Waterfalls and Keswick. We loved it!

Liked the estate and the view from the dining room table. The general location and the closeness of the bus stop gave easy access to many areas.

In a beautiful position with a view of Lake Windermere, and it was extremely peaceful.
