  • "The stairs down to bedrooms are quite steep."

  • "Generally the cottage is well equipped and is in a great location for exploring the Southern Lake District."

    For such a well appointed cottage we would have expected comfortable beds and (maybe) a dishwasher. The beds are very hard which for some may suit some but not for the four of us.

  • "We stayed at Abbots Reading Cottages for a birthday celebration renting out the Cottage, Mews 1 and the Suite."

    All the cottages were immaculate. We all ate together every night (10 of us and 4 dogs in total) in the Cottage which has plenty of room! The dogs loved the forest walk too and the pen! Great for dogs, so pet friendly. Super walks from the door. We had a family bbq in the shared outdoor area. Fabulous! Would highly recommend!

  • "Thoroughly loved the cottage."

    Very clean, bed were amazing. Information book was very useful. Such a fabulous location if you're looking to avoid the busy towns. Situated between the two main lakes its ideal for access to the coast and Ulveston town too. Thanks to Sykes and the Cottage owners from their great service, we'll be back!

  • "We loved the peaceful , scenic and tranquil setting in the middle of the lovely countryside ."

    We haven’t got a dog, but it is a perfect place if you want to take your pets on holiday with you. The upside down rooms of our cottage were very comfortable and we loved the large , well stocked kitchen which had views across to a working neighbouring farm with a very friendly lady called Molly there who welcomed us over when we called to purchase some eggs. We very much hope to return one day!

  • "The quality of the accommodation was outstanding."

    We were warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. Even our old dog was well catered for as the property has its own little wood in which we could walk. The smell of wild garlic in the evenings was quite 'heady' and will be a great memory. This was our first break s for eighteen months and could not have been better. Thank you

The property

Surrounded by gorgeous countryside with nearby woodland walk, this stunning cottage has been beautifully modernised whilst losing none of its vintage charm.

Enjoying a secluded location within two acres of grounds, there are garden areas and patios with outdoor furniture, perfect for a spot of al-fresco dining.

Dogs are welcome to stay, making this the ultimate holiday cottage for the whole family.

Entering the cottage through the spacious kitchen/dining room, guests will be struck by the high vaulted ceiling, country cottage charm and pretty outlook.

From here a few steps lead into a fabulous sitting room with leather sofas, exposed beams, and solid oak furniture.

A glorious spot with room for everyone to relax after supper enjoyed in one of the many local pubs and restaurants or prepared in the well-equipped kitchen.

A house bathroom is on this level, its roll top bath being perfect for a long soak after a day on the hills. A staircase leads down to the two comfortable bedrooms.

Both come with TVs, luxury en-suite shower rooms and glass doors to the courtyard.

On a summer’s day there is nothing better than a lazy morning in bed, with the sun pouring into the room.

One of a once cobbled row of four cottages, Abbots Reading Cottage is surrounded by scenic walks enjoyed both by guests and the local wildlife.

It is not uncommon to come across deer while taking a morning stroll.

Lakeside itself is home to the famous Lakes Aquarium and Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway.

Windermere Lake Cruises depart regularly from the pier, and the views across the lake are breath-taking.

Property not suitable for Infants.

About the location

LAKESIDE

Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 miles.

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
