  • “This was booked as a surprise for ...”
    This was booked as a surprise for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and it was the perfect getaway! It was a beautiful property set in a peaceful and stunning location with luxurious and modern little touches everywhere. The balcony offers something for everyone whether you want a relaxing place for breakfast, a place to watch the wildlife or a chance to look at the night sky. We loved that we could have our dog with us and that cleaning equipment was provided so we didn't feel guilty about coming in ...
    This was booked as a surprise for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and it was the perfect getaway! It was a beautiful property set in a peaceful and stunning location with luxurious and modern little touches everywhere. The balcony offers something for everyone whether you want a relaxing place for breakfast, a place to watch the wildlife or a chance to look at the night sky. We loved that we could have our dog with us and that cleaning equipment was provided so we didn't feel guilty about coming in with muddy feet etc., after our days out exploring. The only thing missing was a bath to soothe our weary muscles but the power shower and heated towel rail made up for that! We did not want to leave and would love to come back!!

Mitchell Wyke Bay

This lovely set of seven cottages rest in the village of Far Sawrey, close to Hawkshead and Bowness. Each wrapped in views of a beautiful lake; the scenery can be admired from the comfort of your holiday home, as you relax in style. Boasting open plan living areas, you can look forward to evening meals after the sun sets, or simply enjoy some quiet time with your loved ones. All cottages benefit from a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely seating arrangement, so you can socialise from morning through to evening, discussing your up and coming adventures. To be at one with the views, wander outside onto the balcony, perhaps with a refreshing drink to start the day off well. The beautiful bedrooms offer a peaceful sleeping environment, and a shower room completes the accommodation. If you are looking for extra space, or hoping to bring along additional guests, Lund Cottage has three bedrooms with en-suites, and a woodburner to enhance those cosy evenings. You are sure to be impressed wherever you choose to stay. There is something for everyone in this wonderful location with the village of Far Sawrey housing a pub/restaurant, and Bowness, with shops, restaurants and leisure facilities; just a short distance across the lake by ferry. Watersports are close at hand on Windermere, along with Lake Cruises and the majestic Wray Castle to admire. Of course plenty of walking opportunities are nearby, with an abundance of scenic attractions, for an all-round memorable getaway. An excellent group of cottages for a peaceful holiday experience.
