Dizzy Duck Cottage is a beautiful stone mid-terraced cottage, located in a quiet area of the centre of Windermere.
Set over three floors, this welcoming cottage is the perfect place for a family holiday in the heart of the Lake District.
As you enter the cottage on the ground floor, the hallway has its own boot and coat area, perfect for keeping outdoor gear out of the way when you've been hiking.
On this floor, you'll find a cosy sitting room with a flat-screen TV and DVD player.
The first of the double bedrooms is also on this floor.
Down on the lower ground floor, your main sitting room has a stunning feature fireplace, and a wall-mounted 40in Smart TV, with a music system.
The kitchen/dining room is beautifully tiled and has all the appliances you need for great home cooking.
A shower room completes the lower ground floor, and there is access to a small rear yard for some private outdoor space.
On the first floor is a lovely family bathroom, a single bedroom and the delightful master bedroom.
You'll also find a handy boiler cupboard, with a washing machine to take care of all those muddy clothes from having fun outdoors.
There's not a huge amount of outdoor space as the cottage is in the centre of Windermere, but you still have a private, secure garden to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air, and with Windermere Lake practically on your doorstep, it's only a quick trip in the car to enjoy the amazing countryside of the Lake District.
You'll be spoiled for choice with Windermere's bars, shops and restaurants only a short step from your front door, and Windermere Lake and the cinema are only a three minute car trip, or a 25 minute leisurely stroll away, with hiking, boat trips and cycling galore.
You're also near the railway station and local bus routes perfect for getting out and about.
With Ambleside and Bowness within easy reach, there's plenty to do when you explore further afield.
Try Wray Castle and the Beatrix Potter Gallery at Ambleside, take a tour of Loughrigg Fell or the incredible view of the falls at Stockghyll Force.
Bowness also has a cinema, and there's more for fans with the World of Beatrix Potter.
The Old Laundry Theatre provides plenty of entertainment year round, and if you're a foodie, try some of the town's eateries, such as the Arts Bar and Grill, Caffe Riva or the Flying Pig Pub.
Whether you're a keen hiker, golfer, watersports fan or a foodie, there's so much to do in Windermere and the surrounding areas, and Dizzy Duck Cottage makes a perfect base for family holidays.
Note: This property has a refundable Good Housekeeping bond of £50.
