    “The house worked really well for us as we had three generations - spread over 4 floors there are plenty of rooms so everyone had space to do as they pleased - and the kitchen-diner was large enough to accommodate us all comfortably.”

    Being an old house the sound insultation was good so noise did not travel. The kitchen was very well equipped and the house comes with three TVs including Sky and BT Sports, a great hit with the young men in the house. The house is nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and generally well equipped - it felt like a home from home. Location wise, we had never stayed in Windermere before but really enjoyed the accessibility of the house to the local shops, it meant everyone was independent and ...

    Being an old house the sound insultation was good so noise did not travel. The kitchen was very well equipped and the house comes with three TVs including Sky and BT Sports, a great hit with the young men in the house. The house is nicely decorated, spotlessly clean and generally well equipped - it felt like a home from home. Location wise, we had never stayed in Windermere before but really enjoyed the accessibility of the house to the local shops, it meant everyone was independent and able to shop/eat/drink without a car which was nice after spending the day walking. Parking, which I thought might be a bit tricky, was absolutely fine. We were always able to park outside the house with the permit and the other permit enabled us to park in the car park around the corner - where indeed there is also freely available parking on-street parking for non-permit holders - so if you have a third car that is no problem either. We would definitely return.

The cottage

An end-terrace Lakeland stone cottage, just a stone's throw from Windermere village centre and less than two miles from Bowness-on-Windermere in the beautiful Lake District.

This is an excellent cottage which is an ideal base for families and friends wishing to tour around the nearby lakes and mountains.

This cosy cottage is perfectly presented over four floors with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

There are also two cloakrooms which provide great flexibility, and two sitting rooms, one of which has an L-shaped sofa.

A well-equipped kitchen offers a lovely place to prepare a sumptuous meal which can be enjoyed in the dining room, before adjourning to one of the sitting rooms.

Outside there is a private yard where you can relax with a refreshing drink.

Being located in the heart of the Lakes, there are endless paths and pretty villages to explore all surrounded by outstanding natural beauty.

Cruise up the lake on the Windermere Steamer or visit the Beatrix Potter exhibition, where you can get up close to Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny.

For the more adventurous, why not get out onto the lake on kayaks or stand-up paddle boards?

Alternatively, hire mountain bikes and cycle round Grizedale Forest.

Whenever you visit this popular area you will always be rewarded with stunning scenery!

Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake.
