  • "The property is large and well maintained."

    Good fixtures and fittings. Comfortable beds. The location is great for getting about and less than 2 miles from the main part of Windermere.

  • "Was a lovely stay, was really nice due to such great weather- I would definitely come back."

    There are a few small things which are good to point out. The house is cold and stays in the shade all day which is nice when theres a heatwave but I can imagine it being very cold other times as we got chilly in the house, the patio area is small and not big enough if you have 8 people, its also in the shade. The amenities are good but would be helpful if there were more toilet roll provided as we were only given half a toilet roll in one of the bathrooms, more baking trays and would be great to be given some washing up liquid/ cleaning supplies other than the sponge and dishwasher tablets provided. It would also be great to be provided the basics of a kitchen like salt and pepper. The TV didn’t work properly - couldnt use netflix, couldn’t use freeview, only free prime video worked and disney+

  • "The house was very clean and comfortable."

    The kitchen was very well equipped, only thing we needed more of was baking trays to use in the ovens. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Beautiful house, very spacious, comfortable beds, maybe a tv in all bedrooms would be good for some families/groups, large wide sofas to 'lounge' on (not made to just sit on)."

    We loved the location, 5 minutes into both Windemere and Bowness on a quiet private road. Downsides- lack of garden (we weren't in long enough to bother us but may some people) Nowhere to dry washing not even a maiden inside (washerdryer in kitchen but not very environmentally aware for all use) No sweeping brush or vacuum (not what you go on holiday to do I know but for me I like to keep where I am staying tidy) Overall, this is a beautiful house to make your home for length of your stay. We would definitely come back again. We all had a wonderful 2 weeks and this house just made our stay so lovely

    Went without hot water for part of the stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to read that you had no hot water during your stay but I am pleased to see that our maintenance team attended the same day that your reported the problem. Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Fridge was broken upon arrival, there was a replacement fridge but this was way too small for 8 people."

    The car park for 2 cars was too small for us to fit both cars but overall the house was comfortable, tidy, great and would recommend.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to hear that you found the property to be clean and comfortable. We are sorry to hear of the issue that you experienced with the fridge, we will ask our Maintenance Team to look into this. The Lakelovers Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed the holiday at the property the access instructions need rewriting as they do not explain the situation correctly."

    We got on well with the neighbours who thought the mixed parking and access instructions were brought about from in the past people being directed to the site by sat navs Using a right of way as a car access.The space for 2 cars to park is very small and 1 car had to shunt 8 times to get in forward and by car had to reverse up the road and back in in 3 shunts as the road was to narrow.The lounge fire was not able to operate.Neighbours said they would like us to stop for a month so we felt welcome.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owners will be able to see your suggestions and can review the instructions where necessary. We are glad that you felt welcomed and enjoyed your holiday. Lakelovers Owner Relations Property Owner

  • "The house was great."

    Perfect location for Windermere, Bowness and to explore the wider area. Comfy beds loads of space and the kitchen was very well equipped. We always try to leave a house clean and tidy but I wasn’t keen on the list of cleaning requirements emailed to us the day before we left. Whilst I understand this is someone’s property I don’t come on holiday to clean. To expect the place to be left exactly as it was on arrival is unrealistic. One would hope professional cleaners are employed rather than expecting guests to provide this service. The property would benefit from a welcome pack to give instructions on how to use things like the heating, wifi, and general information about the area. The only info was about putting the bins out! The property was great, the service not so great

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We will take a look at the arrival information to see if anything needs to be amended. The departure information is a generic email that is sent to all guests advising them of the standard the property needs to be left in. Each property is thoroughly cleaned between lets by our housekeeper but we expect our guests to leave things clean and tidy. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "We had a great week at Westwood."

    It is spacious, comfortable and was very clean. The kitchen is great for cooking and the large settees in the lounge very welcome after a days walking. Membership of the local leisure centre was a real bonus and we went 3 times. Some information about the heating would be helpful but overall one of the best cottages we have stayed in and would definitely recommend.

  • "Westwood is a lovely holiday cottage, very comfortable, spacious and great location (the top floor is not really suitable for adults as very low ceilings)."

    The images on the listing with the dining table set for 8 guests is incorrect - the table is more of a booth in the kitchen area which was comfortable for 6 people and then 3 bar stools at the kitchen island (the kitchen image does also not match the current kitchen) Towels had been missed from the twin bedroom and there was some hand soap in a couple of the bathrooms but then not in others - also would have liked an extra toilet roll for each bathroom. A welcome pack to describe the local area, facilities etc but also how to use the heating and the rubbish instructions would have been useful (the windows were also quite tricky to open and close).

  • "Amazing home - amazing stay."

    As regular lake visitors this was our first joint family home where 3 different households shared. And we loved it!!! The cottage is Absolutely beautiful - well presented - clean - lovely neighbours and plenty of parking. The cottage was in a very ideal location with only being minutes drive from Ambleside and average of 30 minutes away from others of our favourite places. As family overall we all loved every day spent here and was sad to leave - we are a big board game family and utilised our own games plus others situated in the living room which we thought was a brilliant touch. Only few let downs for us was the following: - 2 radiators did not work. Unfortunately they were in my mother and my mother in laws rooms who do not appreciated being cold so we did have to call the maintenance men out. - I think the property would really benefit from a local guide booklet, with info on places to go and see. Information on the health centre you had access to and include activities like go ape and boat hire places for the kids. Being a regular lake visitor we did not need this but my mother who was a first timer did bring this up as being something others would benefit from. - local leisure centre was part of the property and we were given a code to be able to access the pool. This code did not work. When the code was given the man said that was not the code and also you needed to update your membership. Out of good will for my family though he did let us in. - I was given 2 different key codes for the front door. The original key code given via my account on the website did not work. Luckily I checked my email version and that completely different code worked no problem. Maybe update the website the match the email so allow no confusion. With all that said I have to say we will more than likely be back. Absolutely in love with this cottage. It has clearly had a lot of work done to it also and the modernisation of the property is beautiful. Loved it loved it loved it!!

    Difficult to get two cars in the allocated parking spaces unless they are small cars.

  • "Cottage was lovely, shame there is no garden but not much you can do about that."

    A few small areas of maintenance that could have been improved on... 1. We had a leak from the bathroom into the downstairs toilet below. Guy came very quickly to fix it, but his attempted fix didn't work and the issue recurred, so we just stopped using that bath. 2. Some of the lights in some bedrooms and on the landing didn't work. 3. Some of the handles on doors and cupboards were loose, making operation difficult.

About the location


  • Windermere 3 miles
  • Ambleside 4 miles

The small Lakeland village of Troutbeck can be found between its more famous neighbours Windermere and Ambleside, close by the Kirkstone Pass. A mixture of houses, cottages and farms, the village is scattered along a narrow lane bordered by a drystone wall. Many of these buildings date back to the 17th Century with features such as mullioned windows and heavy cylindrical chimneys and the northern end boasts its own 17th century inn. Close by, the bustling towns of Windermere and Ambleside are popular with visitors, providing a range of amenities to suit all tastes. Lake Windermere offers boat trips, including the lakeside ferry to the Lakeside Aquarium and Grizedale Forest Park. The ‘Windermere Steamboat Museum’ displays a fascinating collection of boats whilst children will enjoy the ‘World of Beatrix Potter’ in Bowness, where technology brings her characters to life. Within easy reach of destinations such as Coniston Water, Kendal, Keswick and the Lakeland Mountains, Troutbeck is ideally situated for exploring all that the region has to offer.
