Our stay
Me and my partner stayed at Waterhead cottage in May 2021. It is exceptionally clean throughout, with lovely decor. We was warmly welcomed with a welcome pack when we arrived, which made it extra special. The cottage is in a great location for some beautiful walks and towns to visit. We enjoyed spending our evenings sitting out on the decking looking over Lake Windermere watching the sun go down and was extremely peaceful. We certainly will be recommending to others. Thank you John and Natalie for letting us spend our holiday at your cottage and we are looking forward to booking again in the future.

Stunning cottage in a lovely location.
Lovely light and airy cottage, beautifully furnished and well thought out. The garden and patio area are superb and a short walk down the lane brings you to your private lake frontage with seating area and everything you need for a barbecue. Great location between Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside and all Lakeland attractions are easily accessible. Have been to many holiday cottages in various parts of the country and Waterhead Cottage is without doubt, one of the nicest we have been to. A credit to the owners. Will definitely return.
