  • "Cosy cottage in an excellent location, close to amenities but very quiet."

    Well decorated and comfotably furnished. Just a few very small niggles- some of the doors (bedroom and bathroom) do not close easily, space is quite tight in front bedroom and the basement is rather cold so not the best after a shower! Stairs are steep so could be difficult for those with mobility issues. Overall, we had a lovely time in the lake district and will definitely be returning to explore further afield.

  • "Lovely holiday cottage."

    Perfect location for visiting Windermere and surrounding areas. Beds a little too soft for our liking, but that is personal preference. Facilities really good and well equipped.

  • "The cottage was in a great location and very clean throughout."

    We welcomed the message from the owners to say we could access the property earlier than 4pm. The owners had also kindly left a bottle of wine and essentials for our arrival. Accommodation - I don’t think the pictures truly reflect the property as they make it seem a little bigger. If you have mobility issues you would struggle with this cottage as the stairs were steep and see comments below. Kitchen - nice and as reflected in the pictures. Living room - comfortable and cosy room Upstairs the rooms felt quite small and the furniture not well placed. You have to squeeze past furniture to get to mirrors etc, past hot radiator to get to the other side of the double bed so it all very tight. The bathroom was lovely but we would have preferred the shower to be in here, instead the shower was a tiny cubicle in the basement that would not work for tall people. Garden - furniture was different to photos and is now a rattan suite but was covered in bird mess. Would be nice for this area to have some plant pots to soften it. Despite this we enjoyed our stay. With a few adjustments the cottage could be fantastic.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. With regards to your suggestions, When we designed the layout of the double bedroom we consulted both with Lakelovers and Visit England for the optimal design solution to fit a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside table and for the bed to have access on both sides. The roll top bath in the main bathroom does have a shower attachment. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Disappointed that we were not informed before arrival that the shower was awaiting repair."

    This did cause some inconvenience to all of us, due to health conditions. My husband also found a used cotton bud under the bed in the double room.

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at Tizzie Whizzie. We are glad to hear you had a lovely stay. I understand the owner reached out to you regarding the shower prior to your stay and you had responded with the following 'Hi Jenny & Peter. Arrived safely. The cottage is lovely. No need to apologise about the shower, these things happen. It won't spoil our holiday. Thank you'. We are sorry that you have since felt different. Kind Regards Property Owner

  • "Charming cottage in the heart of Windermere!"

    ! Close to all restaurants and pubs and perfect location for exploring the lakes. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedrooms were super comfy with plenty of storage for clothes etc. The outside area was perfect for our golden retriever and for sitting with a glass of wine in the evening! I can't wait to return here next year!!

  • "The cottage was as advertised, was very clean and in a great location close to the town centre and amenities."

    A really good base for a family holiday. In terms of minor points of feedback, the shower in the basement was fine as long as you were not taller then 5ft 10 - might have been better in main bathroom with plenty of height. There was a sign on the toilet to flush twice if water kept running - again not a major issue but slightly annoying if kids are up in the night and forget to fiddle with it - easier to just fix it. The main bedroom is also a bit tight on space.

The property

Arrive at this traditional Lake District cottage, right at the heart of Windermere village, and you'll be surprised by the sophistication within.

Spread over three floors, Tizzie Whizie Cottage is decadent yet relaxed; finished with natural colours, plumped up with leather furnishings and oozing Lakeland cottage charm.

Two cottage bedrooms, each with a bathroom facility and one complete with roll top bath, perfect for a long soak after a day on the fells - this central cottage serves as a romantic retreat and its intriguing name is allegedly given originally by local Windermere boatmen to a waterside legend which was seen to reside on Belle Isle.

This is a vibrant, convenient bolt hole, surrounded by sophisticated village facilities and well-placed for exploring our Lake District National Park. Permit parking is available outside the cottage and on neighbouring streets.

Entrance hallway leading into the light and cosy lounge which has an opening into the dining kitchen.

This kitchen has everything you need and with a door to the patio, ideal for summer evenings.

Upstairs to the two cottage bedrooms, one double and one twin and on this level is the bathroom with roll top bath and shower attachment and on the lower ground level is the shower room.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
