“Little gem in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 7 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Stayed for 3 nights from 01/03/13. Was for my wifes birthday and so we could take the dog. Really easy booking process and spoke to Clive on the phone just to confirm things. The cottage itself is lovely, newly decorated with a new kitchen and bathroom. We only used one bedroom but both are huge doubles with nice contemporary decor. Dog was only allowed downstairs which is only fair. Downstairs space good too. Location is bang in the heart of Windermere with good ammeneties near by. We drove but the station is only 5 mins away. Was about 25 min nice walk into Bowness and the lake. Had great walks around the lake. Most pubs in the area are dog friendly even those selling food and some taxi's will take dogs if you want to go further afield. Think we will look to book again and try make it an annual thing and will definately look to stay here again.

“Great location, spacious, and comfortable”
Reviewed 1 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Two of my friends and I stayed in this cottage for 3 nights, and we found it very comfortable. The cottage was very spacious, and it was lovely to spread ourselves out and relax. We especially liked the fact there were DVDs to watch and books to read! Our only problem was figuring out the knack to locking the front door, which was a bit fiddly. There were no towels provided either. The cottage could also benefit from Wifi. Conclusively however, this cottage was a lovely place for exploring the Lakes district area.

“Wowed by Windermere”
Reviewed 18 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

people found this review helpful

We were tempted by the lovely photographs of the cottage on the website, and when we arrived, the rooms certainly didn't disappoint. The cottage seems to have been recently decorated/renovated, and all of the rooms have a fresh, modern feel to them. All equipment was new and worked well, and there were lots of little extras, like a range of books to read, and details of the history of the house, which made us feel very welcome.

The cottage is central to Windermere, and about a mile away from the Lake. We really enjoyed our visit and would definitely recommend it to others.
