  • Mr Wells

    “Perfect cottage for our break in the Lake District.”

    Centrally located in Windemere with amenities just a few steps away.

    Centrally located in Windemere with amenities just a few steps away. Our only issue was struggling to park close to the cottage over the bank holiday. It was just very busy.

The property

Spread over three floors, this traditional cottage is decadent yet relaxed; think Farrow & Ball colours, sumptuous Laura Ashley furnishings and Lakeland cottage charm.

With exposed beams over oak floors, a woodburning stove, contemporary country kitchen and dining area, cosy cottage bedrooms, luxury family bathroom and small patio, Charlotte's Cottage is a vibrant restful retreat for one or two couples, with an occasional basement twin bedroom if needed.

Windermere village centre has a delightful busy traditional feel, with lots of shops, galleries and cafes, along with a superior Booths supermarket., traditional Lakeland pubs and restaurants.

2 miles down the road, you’ll discover the bustling, cosmopolitan Bowness-on-Windermere, with shops, bars, restaurants and of course the Lake itself.

Here you enjoy lake cruises, which can take you up to Ambleside & Lakeside, hire boats and generally enjoy the fantastic views.

Jump straight onto the main A591 to head north along to Ambleside, Grasmere & Keswick.

You’ll also access the Langdale Valley and Coniston, and a scenic drive over the Kirkstone Pass, through the Troutbeck Valley drops you down to Ullswater.

You'll also lovely strolls from the doorstep of your Windermere holiday cottage – why not walk to the top of Orrest Head, where the lake views are the same today as the ones that inspired Alfred Wainwright.
