  • "An amazing house that all 11 of us enjoyed."

    Spacious, immaculately clean and well maintained. Lots of nice little touches too….hand wash, shower gel and shampoo in all the bathrooms. Washing up liquid, dishwater tablets, coffee, tea, sugar and hot chocolate all provided. We will definitely be coming back

  • "We enjoyed 4 nights at Holly Wood and would definately recommend the property as a base for a large family/group of friends for it’s location and for it’s space and comfort."

    We found the house in a very clean condition, all the radiators lovely and warm and the wine and flowers left on the dining table added to the relaxing ambience of the property. Ian, the owner called me whilst on route to the property to let me know his contact details if needed and when we did contact him to ask if we could borrow some kitchen scales he turned up shortly after with a brand new set. All the bedrooms have their own en-suite shower/bath with amazing water pressure, luxury toiletries were supplied together with large fluffy towels. We would definately recommend Holly Wood as a home from home and look forward to staying here again.

  • "Absolutely perfect for our group of 6 with all rooms being en-suite."

    Location of property was A+ with ample street parking plus the allocated parking at the rear if the property. My only negative would be that the pots and pans need upgrading. That aside we all felt really comfortable and would not hesitate to book again.

  • "The property is excellent, exactly what is advertised, lovely and clean, with some really nice extra touches, such as tea and coffee, milk in the fridge and a nice bottle of wine on the table."

    The location is superb, just a short stroll to the centre of Windermere. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family.

  • "Group of friends - we had a great weekend with Hollywood as a base."

    House is large and spacious with everything you need. Shops and bars are a short walk away. Dedicated parking for 3 cars but had no issue with free on street parking for additional vehicles. Ian our host was excellent from a communications perspective. Will definitely look to use again for a Windermere stay

  • "Perfect holiday home in a really good location."

    A 2 minute walk from the shops, restaurants etc in Windermere and a 15 min walk down to the lake. The house was ideal. Nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. It has 5 large double rooms all with their own en-suite. Really big dining room table to sit all 10 of us. A lovely sociable space. Big kitchen with American style fridge and separate freezer which was perfect. Its an ex b&b so was really spacious. The outside space was small but ideal. We enjoyed alfresco drinks in the sun. There is only seating for 4 though so bring your own camping chairs! The only downside was there needed to be extra seating in living room and the kitchen isn’t as well stocked as described. Only 1 cup, 1 glass, 1 plate etc per person which was a bit inconvenient but nothing more. If you want to cook a meal you might need couple more pots and pans. It was a bit sparse. We had couple minor problems and the owner text back immediately to resolve, We were really impressed with the speed and it was reassuring. We would Definitely return and would recommend this property.

  • "Lovely house in a great location."

    Plenty of space for our group - didn’t feel like we were on top of each other. The lounge and dining area were a great area for everyone to come together. They we’re very clean and modern. Very comfortable and the bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Only areas that could possibly be improved on would be having a few more cleaning supplies in the kitchen and replacing the light in one of the bathrooms on the top floor as it didn’t work. All in all it was the perfect base for our group weekend alway!

The property

Nestled in the popular town of Windermere in Cumbria, is this fantastic end-terrace, Victorian property, Hollywood.

Boasting a superb location within the Lake District National Park, in the heart of Windermere, and just moments away from the famous Lake Windermere, Hollywood is a wonderful dwelling for couples or a family of 11 who are looking to explore the Lakes.

Park in one of the three designated parking spaces, before venturing inside the lovely porch area of your new home-from-home.

Be welcomed into a sumptuous sitting room, where velvet blue sofas entice you to unwind in front of the flatscreen TV as you sip your favourite tipple.

After a moment of well-deserved relaxation, progress to the impressive kitchen/diner, where all the appliances a budding chef needs are available, including an impressive range cooker and a large fridge.

Once the designated chef has made a tasty meal, it can be enjoyed at the dining table, which seats all the family, and also offers views of another TV; perfect for a bit of post-dinner unwinding.

On the first floor you will discover, four beautifully decorated bedrooms, a king-size with its own bathroom, a double, a zip/linked super-king-size and a single, all of which have a shower room, ideal for those who prefer a little more privacy, as well as all the rooms having their own TV, perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings!

Climb the stairs again to find two more delightful doubles, both of which also boast en-suites and their own TVs.

All the rooms are fully equipped with complimentary toiletries, Egyptian cotton bedding, hair dryers, and a radio alarm clock for those wanting to rise early to explore.
