    The furnishings and equipment were all excellent and the Christmas decorations made for a beautiful, thoughtful, touch. Snow on our fourth night was very seasonal and the heating, Aga and log burner made it lovely and cosy. The studio is an ideal addition, as is the off-road parking. We highly recommend this outstanding property.

    Cottage lovely with every facility. An issue arose with AGA but owner came back to us quickly. Could not find the firestick remote to operate the TV in ground floor bedroom but not important to us. Should flag up to owner that other people are putting rubbish in the designated Cumbria Waste bin which caused bin to overflow at end of stay.

    My mum, myself and other family members had such an amazing week. The cottage is superb and the wildlife in the garden is spectacular. At one point a pheasant tapped on the conservatory door for more nuts. Where can u see that! Thank you to the owners for allowing us to experience this cottage for a week. One bit of advice for those staying is keep the tub of nuts inside as the squirrel managed to get the lid of twice lol. No hesitation in recommending anyone to stay here and I hope to come back again

  • "If you are looking for a holiday home experience which makes you feel like you are abroad, you will be hard pushed to match the Bobbin Mill."

    Outside you have a huge dining table with seating for eight, you then walked down a few steps that took you over a small bridge to an area where the BBQ and a large fire pit are located with yet another seating area under a wooden outdoor structure which resembled a large beach hut, add to this the outside lights which were strung back across back towards the house and it provided us with some very memorable and relaxed evenings. Inside one half of the double garage adjacent to this were a full size pool table and tabletop football! The web pictures did not do justice to the size and scale of the property, every attention to detail and quality has been paid and the owners were extremely helpful.

    Close to Lakeside where you can take a boat up to Bowness and experience stunning views, there are also local walks (the one up to the High Dam was beautiful). The cottage is just fantastic in every way. The setting, the facilities and quality of everything was just 5 star. The owners John and Lisa were so helpful and checked in with us to make sure we had everything. The log burner was amazing and heated the large lounge area really quickly although we had 3 days of largely sunny weather in late September - so lucky! Sitting in the lounge conservatory in the morning watching the birds feed outside was so therapeutic. We absolutely loved everything about Bobbin Cottage and will definitely return.

Everything was spotlessly clean. The football and pool tables in the garage are the best and saw many a fiercely competitive match in the evening!

The property

Located in the tranquil hamlet of Lakeside, this superb end-terrace slate cottage sits in a large garden plot which backs onto woodland and countryside, close to the tip of Lake Windermere and Newby Bridge in the Lake District.

Beautifully-presented throughout, with immaculate attention to detail, this cottage is ideally suited to friends and family wishing to enjoy time together in one of the most stunning areas of the Lake District.

Set over two floors, the main house has three bedrooms and bathrooms and a spacious open plan sitting room which has a woodburner housed in front of a slate wall.

There is a stunning quality kitchen with AGA, butcher’s sink, granite surfaces, marble floor and let’s not forget the wine chiller to keep your favourite tipple chilled to enjoy inside or out.

Also enjoy the delightful feature of the open wall contemporary window from the kitchen to the sitting room, allowing a view to the conservatory sitting area with French doors to the garden and beyond.

Open the French doors on to the wrap-around patio and enjoy the silence broken only by birdsong or step down into the garden and sit and listen to the relaxing sound of the babbling stream.

Across the garden is the studio perfect for extended family, friends or perhaps teenagers.

This accommodation provides an open plan kitchen and sitting room with TV, shower room and bedroom with views over the garden.

Just 10 minutes' walk away from this lovely property is the tip of Lake Windermere with the Lakeside Hotel with spa and restaurant, and where you can embark onto Lakeland cruises to Ambleside and Bowness.

Alternatively, take a trip on the Haverthwaite steam train and step back in time or visit the Lakeland Aquarium.

Just 15 minutes' away is Cartmel which houses race meetings during the summer months and is the smallest racecourse in the UK.

Cartmel is also the home to sticky toffee pudding and the ancient 12th century priory, and is also a gastro centre with the infamous L’Enclume restaurant.

Cyclists are also spoilt as close by is the Grizedale Forest with numerous bike tracks to suit all standards, as well as Go Ape.

Walking is also on your doorstep through woods to bore trees and High Dam and call in to Bobbin Mill, which is a fascinating mill and discover why your cottage has its name.

Finally at the end of the day, return to this glorious retreat to enjoy the peace of the garden or inside in front of the woodburner.

This is a special cottage in a delightful location, ideal for exploration and enjoyment all year round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location


Newby Bridge 1.2 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 8.7 miles.

Set on the southern shores of Lake Windermere, the small, sleepy hamlet of Lakeside offers a peaceful getaway location, hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the Lake District’s popular attractions, but still within easy reach of them. Whether you decide to discover the area in the car, by foot, bike, boat or steam, there’s plenty to see nearby to keep the whole family content. The ferry dock offers the chance to travel by boat to Waterhead or Bowness, or take a shorter trip to the National Trust’s Fell Foot Park, across the water, which offers pretty grounds set alongside the very tip of the lake, providing plenty of places for picnics, paddling, games and gentle strolls on sunny afternoons. Situated alongside the Lakeside Station is the long-standing Lakeside and Haverwaithe Railway, home to Britain’s oldest standard gauge steam engine, on which you can travel back in time along this well-loved Heritage line, and where little ones will delight in meeting Thomas and his friends. Visit the Lakes Aquarium to uncover the often-secretive world of life below water, where you’ll chance upon hundreds of captivating creatures that feature in the surrounding rivers, lakes and sea. There are wonderful, well-signed walks to be enjoyed in the immediate area, including the 5-mile route to Finsthwaite’s High Dam, which trails from Lakeside through pleasant woodlands and meadows. Lakeside offers an exclusive holiday location with all of the Lake District’s delights at your fingertips.
