Great location for the Lakes
Loved the location of this duplex apartment, in the centre of Windermere so a very short walk to all the local amenities. Parking for one car is at the back of the property, away from the road, down a buttock-clenching private road when you have an SUV! The property was very clean and cosy but we were a little disappointed by the layout of the lounge (at a right angle to the television is not very good for your posture and chronic neck problems; we had to move the furniture to face the television) and the sofas were so uncomfortable we had to use the cushions to make it more bearable to sit in. I hope the owners have them replaced in the near future if they haven't already. Excellent amount of storage for clothes and toiletries with built in wardrobes in the master bedroom. If you like a soft mattress, then you will love the bed in the master bedroom. Had a lovely week long stay here.

Deja Vu !!
2nd stay at this well furnished and highly appointed townhouse in the centre of Windermere. Essential car parking space made it very easy as a great base for all the activities found nearby. Warm & cosy, I would defiantly recommend this property & hope to return again soon. Thanks Jo ! Our days out included Crinkle crag, Easdale Tarn, Wasdale, Bassenwaite, Grasmere & nearby Ambleside.

Perfect !
Just returned from this amazing holiday let in Windermere...As detailed in the photos, this is an immaculate rental in the heart of Windermere town . It had everything our family needed, and it was refreshing that everything worked ! This rental has been well looked after and maintained to a high standard by the owner. Windermere is a great location for all activities , and we were lucky enough to climb Helvellyn, Catbells , and kayaking on Ullswater. I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends, and we hope to return soon. Thanks Jo !

Excellent location, super cottage & parking
We stayed at Mrs Tiggywinkles over Easter and couldn't fault it. The cottage is set back just off the High Street but is quiet with the added advantage of parking which is a bonus in the lakes. The property is bright, warm, modern and well equipped with everything we needed including wifi, we had plenty of room to spread out. The bathroom and ensuite both had good showers with plenty of hot water, essential after a long walk. We used the local bus 599 to Grassmere and the train to Kendal both regular services and ideal as the station is just a short walk from the cottage. We would definitely book again.

Excellent neighborhood rental
A little hard to find at first, but a really conveniently located apartment. Comfortable living room with two sofas. Well equipped kitchen. One full bath downstairs but then both bedrooms up, one of which has an ensuite bathroom, very tiny but nicely done and looks rather new. Can walk to everywhere in town from here. Floors and stairs very creaky. We really enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
