  • "We had a lovely stay at Walkers Cottage."

    The property has been renovated to a high standard and has a cosy, homely feel. Everything was spotless and kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Master bedroom was spacious with a good ensuite shower. Its in a good location with both Windermere and Bowness town centres being within walking distance (although it is a steep uphill walk back from Bowness). Thank you for a lovely stay.

  • "We had a lovely stay over Easter."

    The house is comfortable and thoughtfully decorated. Everything we needed was there. The location was also fabulous. There’s a really good park for children only a two minute walk away. Windermere shops are just 10 minutes to walk to and Bowness a 5 minute drive. We plan to stay again.

  • "My family had a lovely stay at Walkers Cottage, it was very comfortable and had a home from home feel."

    Very well equipped. We had no issue with finding street parking and was pleased to find a shop and play park just a road away. Easy walk to Windermere or hilly walk to Bowness so great location.

  • "Apart from the weather it was fine."

    The tea pot did not pour very well, and we would have preferred if the bath towels had been larger.

  • "Cottage living space was smaller than made to look on photographs which wasn't a problem for us as a couple but if 5 people staying I think it would be very cramped ."

    Apart from that it was clean comfortable and very cosy with a lovely feel to it . Nicely finished with good quality fittings etc

    We really appreciated the style, decor and quality furnishings throughout the cottage. Parking was easy and only a short walk into Windermere for all the amenities. We would love to return in the future, thank you.

  • "Walker’s cottage is a hidden gem."

    10 minutes walk from central Windermere and a short drive to many fell top walks. The house is well decorated and laid out. The showers and beds were super. Lots of extra furnishing touches too. We cooked most nights, lots of resources (an over proof dish for a family size meal would be a good addition) and the house was cool for our warm weather stay. Sunny spots to sit outside and for washing to drive. Definitely would stay again and encourage you to book. It was just the stay we needed.

    Very clean and family friendly. So helpful that a highchair, fire guard and cot mattress was provided. Would recommend to anyone to stay here.

  • "Cottage is beautiful in a great location and very comfortable."

    My only feedback would be for more cooking equipment for those cooking at home

    “Thank you for your feedback Mrs Kirk. We have increased the amount of cooking equipment to cover everything you might need whilst on holiday. All the best, Steve and Julie." Property Owner

  • "A very well appointed cottage, very clean."

    The facilities were correct in the cottage description, the sofas and beds were very comfortable, the cottage looked inviting as soon as we walked in. No problems encountered during our weeks stay, reassuring to have a contact number if required. A great base for our walking break in the Lakes. Good walking access to restaurants and shops in Bowness and Windermere, took less than half an hour to stroll back from Bowness in an evening. The owners had made the cottage feel very safe with precautions in place for Covid19, thank you for such a lovely base!

  • "I tried to contact your customer helpline 4 times before the holiday as I had a query and each time waited at least 30 minutes and then gave up."

    I would suggest either offering an email address or live chat. Cottage was great and really clean. The only call out was that there were 4 of us and 2 toilet rolls which wasn't great and also no dishwasher tablets available, I would expect these to be provided.

    We would like to thank you for taking the time to feedback on your stay at Walker's Cottage and are pleased that you found the cottage to be great and clean! We do apologise for the waiting times you experienced, unfortunately our call center are still experiencing exceptionally high volumes of calls due to COVID. Our local office however, would have been more than happy to assist in your queries and would have been happy to provide additional supplies of loo rolls. As Walker's Cottage is Self-Catering accomodation we do only provide a small supply of loo roll to get you through the first day. We apologise for the lack of dishwasher tablets, this was an oversight and I can confirm that a starter set of tablets is usually provided. We do look forward to you hopefully staying with us again.

  • "A beautiful house in a quiet suburban street in Windermere."

    Easy on street parking (we were able to park right outside almost all of the time we were there), and a short walk to both Windermere and Bowness, as well as to local hills. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and had a range of essentials to start us off e.g milk, handwash, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets. The kitchen was well equiped with good quality pots, pans and utensils for home cooking, and there was plenty of crockery and cutlery. Although it is a terraced house, the walls are thick so it was nice and quiet. The TV has Now TV and Netflix. Both showers had good water flow and stable temperatures, and the beds were comfortable. All in all an excellent base for our Lake District holiday. My 9 year old wants to go back and live there forever!

Discover the delights of picturesque Windermere town, only a 10 minute walk away, and Bowness only 20 minutes.

A perfect base to be able to enjoy the surrounding mountain fells and majestic lakes of the National Park with all of your loved ones around you.

After an adventure-filled afternoon, look forward to coming back to the property and being welcomed into the spacious sitting room, where two plush sofas surround the TV and the gas log burner, which offers a gentle warmth during the colder months.

When you feel like trying your hand at a local delicacy or a family-favourite recipe, head into the kitchen, where a range of quality appliances are awaiting the chef of the group to rustle up something delicious.

The property also comes with a handy dishwasher, and washer/ dryer, and large fridge/freezer.
