  • “We had a brilliant 4 nights, could have done with longer, excellent cottage 2 minuets from the main street.”

    One slight complaint trees around the gates could do with a trim as after any rain they are a bit of a challenge to get through without getting soaked.

About the property

Sitting off from the main street in the heart of Windermere, is this beautifully appointed, stone cottage.

Giddy Goose offers a wonderful position for exploring the Lake District with the family or a group of friends, boasting a well-presented interior and amenities on the doorstep.

On entrance is a vestibule, where you can kick of your boots and hang your coats before relaxing away your evening inside.

On the right is a cosy lounge boasting a large bay window and character oozing from the walls.

Not only does the coal-effect fire add warmth to the sitting room, the colour schemes uplift your mood each day.

The fully fitted kitchen overlooks the patio area and the dining room displays a large dining table set for eight.

Over the first and second floors are the bedrooms giving you flexible sleeping arrangements.

There is a cloakroom on both levels with the addition of a gleaming family bathroom and an en-suite adjoining the master bedroom.

Access to the parking area is via a private lane and the enclosed garden wraps itself around the exterior, with a sunny patio area and bistro set for enjoying a refreshing beverage.

Plant pots line the edge with colourful shrubs and over the wall are views of the quiet, public fields to the rear.

Windermere is a thriving town, with many attractions for all ages to enjoy.

Why not browse the shops before a delicious pub lunch?

Or take a boat cruise to Bowness and venture on one of many countryside walks?

There is mountain biking at Grizedale and the kids will love the 'World of Beatrix Potter'.

Those seeking a thrill can fly through the air on a zip wire, climb tree tops and take part in an adventure like no other at Go Ape adventure park!

You are also surrounded by many pretty towns and villages, well worth a visit; so consider a stay at Giddy Goose.
