This 17th century chocolate box cottage is situated in a peaceful location on the edge of Windermere village, with lovely views over the surrounding fells and only a short walk into Windermere village. An ideal base for a family, this retreat offers a comfortable base for eight, whether you plan on simply relaxing or embarking on plenty of Lake District adventures. The interior of the Old Droomer is filled with a wealth of character features, beamed ceilings, wooden doors and spice cupboards that give it a very traditional feel.

Enter through an outside porch into a hallway with a stone floor, leading off to a cosy snug room where you can curl up beside the fire after a day of rambling the fells. Carry the conversation into the stunning open-plan living area with oak beams and floor-to-ceiling windows at one end and patio doors to the side.Move through to the kitchen, its cream painted units and integrated appliances offering all you could need for a self-catered stay, even boasting a dishwasher and washer/dryer for your convenience.

An elegant dining table stands in the living area and is the perfect place to host family meals while watching over the garden for deer who often visit. Upstairs in the main house there are three bedrooms, one with a king-size bed, one with a double bed with en-suite facilities and a twin, which is ideal for children. End your day submerged in true relaxation within the beautiful bathroom, hosting both a large oval double-ended bath and a separate walk-in shower so you can choose how best to unwind in the evening.

The fourth bedroom can be found in The Stables accessed up a steep staircase and consists of a king-size bed and en-suite shower room, perfect for those who want a private place to sleep. Outside there is a private parking area for up to three cars, as well as a large, enclosed garden with patio area where you can sit out with a morning coffee and enjoy your scenic, peaceful setting. From the door there is a network of footpaths awaiting exploration, including the Cumbrian Way and School Knott around the lower Lakeland fells.

Windermere is home to plenty of shops where you can pick up local delicacies and produce or book a table at one of the fine restaurants in the area. Further afield, the delights of Ambleside, Kendal and Penrith are worth visiting too, with even more opportunities for walking alongside cycling, fishing, golf, horse riding sand so much more! There is so much to explore around the Old Droomer. Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of GBP 200.
