    “Cosy Cottage Fab Location!”
    Booked this last minute for a holiday in half term! Stayed 4 nights and loved the lovely gas fire in the cosy front room. Bedrooms all clean and nicely decorated. VERY close to Windermere- 10 minute walk MAX! 30 second drive! Only downside is it is near a lot of other houses where people live as opposed to other people on vacation so if you love the 'holiday' feel this may not be for you

The property

Set several minutes’ walk from the ever-popular town of Windermere, this superb stone cottage sits in a row of Victorian terraces, with Lake Windermere just over a mile away.

This excellent cottage has been delightfully furnished with the greatest of care and guests will be thrilled with the spacious accommodation and the property’s excellent location, being in the heart of the Lake District.

Set over three floors, there are three comfy bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, along with an additional family bathroom.

The ground floor offers a bright, well-equipped kitchen, a cosy sitting room with a gas fire, and a separate dining room.

Outside, there is a yard and paved area, both with patio furniture, so you can enjoy the peace of this quiet location with your morning coffee.

With the property’s superb position, you can explore local Ambleside and Hawkshead, and of course, Bowness with its colourful selection of restaurants and shops.

You’ll also find a splendid park in Bowness overlooking the lake, where you can play pitch-and-putt or hire a traditional rowing boat to explore the lake from the water.

Why not hop on the Windermere Steamer and cruise down to Lakeside, visit the Aquarium of the Lakes and take a tour of the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway?

This cosy cottage is perfectly placed for a lovely Lake District holiday at any time of the year.
