    “4 elderly friends spent a weekend in this absolutely idyllic spot!”

    The cottage was perfect for us as we could walk straight in from the top car Park, where we offloaded everything which was very helpful. We did have to concentrate on sorting out the adjustments to the heating ( very easy when we cottoned on!) also the hot water system was unusual. However, once we found the main hot water switch, (on the wall outside the bathroom ) we switched it to either basins ( kitchen & bathroom sinks) or if showering, then switch it over to shower! Then everything was perfect! We walked along the woody pathway to the lakeside & jetty early morning each day & were charmed by passing roe deer, rabbits, and various lovely ducks! The views from the seat at the jetty was stunning. What a privilege to be able to enjoy such a lovely part of the world!

This charming, ground floor terraced cottage is a short stroll down the drive and a private track to the shores of Lake Windermere, and half a mile from the town itself.

Neatly appointed throughout, providing cosy accommodation, this Windermere cottage is ideal for couples and small families who wish to enjoy this peaceful location, with excellent local amenities, in one of the most beautiful parts of England.

This Windermere cottage has two bedrooms and an open-plan living area with a kitchen, and dining and sitting areas.

Here, you can gather and enjoy social evenings cooking and relaxing together, discussing the day's adventures.

Outside is a small, open terrace with a bench, where you can simply sit back and enjoy the views of the lake, stretching across to the Lake District fells in the distance.

Wander down to the lake shore, or hop in the car and visit the colourful town of Bowness-on-Windermere, less than two miles away, with a superb collection of cafés, restaurants, and specialist shops.

Overlooking the lake is The Glebe, a lovely park area with pitch-and-putt golf and tennis courts.

The Windermere Steamers also depart from here, taking passengers up the lake from Bowness to Ambleside, or down to Lakeside.

This superb Windermere cottage is the perfect base for exploring the Lake District and can be enjoyed all-year-round.
