A charming stone cottage that sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms

Charnwood is a traditional Lakeland Stone Cottage just off the centre of bustling Windermere Village. The house sleeps four people and has a double and twin bedroom. Over three floors, the cottage has a large kitchen with range style cooker, separate sitting and dining room and a suntrap patio garden.

With parking for two cars and a short walk to pubs, restaurants and local shops, Charnwood is ideal for those wanting to leave the car behind.


We booked to stay here for 3 nights for our first trip to Windermere. We found the house to be very basic and compared to other holiday cottages we have stayed in it was very cold and uninviting. It was not the cosy cottage we could look forward to coming back to after a day out, and certainly didn't have the home from home feel we have got from other places. We diskliked it so much we decided to come home a day early as we didn't want to stay an extra night. The location is good,right in the centre of windermere but that was the only benefit. We will definitely return to the lakes again but will look for accommodation elsewhere.
