Great location!
Stayed here for long weekend with my daughter. Lovely clean and cosy house with ample room for 5 people. Has everything you need. Great location right near centre of Windermere with shops and restaurants so close but in a quiet and pretty street. Super base to see all the Lake district. Totally recommend!

Fantastic cottage in a beautiful area
I had an excellent stay at Fairoak, thank you!. Sarah was fantastic, the cottage is warm and spacious, the kitchen is well-equipped, location is so convenient yet quiet for a good night's rest, parking space is super handy, and the place was so clean and inviting. Would definitely come back again.

Excellent cottage. Comfortable, well equipped & relaxing.
We really enjoyed our stay at Fairoak. Having been to Windermere before but stayed in a hotel we thought we would try a holiday cottage for a change. The cottage is ideally located in the heart of the town centre and within short walking distance for various amenities including supermarket, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. There is a private car parking space at the back of the cottage which is really convenient for loading and unloading especially with small children. The cottage itself is very homely and spacious. It was clean and has been very well kept. There was plenty of room and it has everything you would expect for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. In particular the kitchen is well equipped including all the essentials, and the Wi-Fi was easy to connect and great to have to enable us to plan our outings. Also, the beds are extremely comfortable making for a good night's sleep especially as it is also very quiet and peaceful at night. We would definitely recommend Fairoak to others and would also stay again ourselves as it is great holiday accommodation with that home from home feel.

Great cottage in Windermere
On arrival in Oak Street, we have to pass the cottage, go up HAZEL street and take the first turning left, the cottage is east to find as are the keys are in the Key Safe. The kitchen is small but well equipped and well cared fore. To the left is the dinning room, again well appointed On the right is the hall door, to the left is the sitting room again well appoihted and clean, next left is the front door, to the rigth are the stairs leading to a single bedroom infront of you, a family shower room to the right. Back to the top of the stairs and up 3 steps to the left is the corridor leading to a twin room on the left and a double en suite in front. Everything is well appointed. However the ensuite is a macerator ensuite so is liable to flooding and the shower does not keep warm all through a normal length shower. It is also liable to flooding. For a holiday let it is adequate for sleeping and eating in, not much else. it is situated at the shops end of Oak Street and has a nice park at the top end. At the bottom (it is on a hill) is a Co Op on the corner with a cafe on the other corner. It is close to the centre of the village with many eateries and a fair sprinkling of pubs within easy walking. There is also a Sainsburies close by. Down the hill to the left of the village are hotels, pubs parks and within 1 mile bowness on the edge of lake Windermere with plenty of ferries to all attrections on Windermere lake. Lovely.

Lovely convenient location and central but tucked away from the town. Close to the park and shops and restaurants. Great base for walking and seeing the more rural areas of the Lakes.
