    “Waterhead is a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting .”

    Less than a 5 minute walk down a private lane takes you to private jetty and BBQ area which has everything you need for a bbq or just to sit and watch the boats on Windermere.

    Less than a 5 minute walk down a private lane takes you to private jetty and BBQ area which has everything you need for a bbq or just to sit and watch the boats on Windermere. Only disappointment was that there wasnt really anywhere suitable to place fishing rod rests and rods, so not a great place for fishing! I would highly recommend this cottage,it has everything you need for a lovely holiday in the Lakes.
