  • "In general the cottage was very nice but cleanliness could be improved but the one thing I would suggest is to improve the broadband as the only was way to watch tv was to steam on the smart tv but it played for a few secs then would stop and this went on constantly."

    For my mum to watch a 45 min show took 1h 50 mins

  • "Excellent cottage, very well placed for Windermere cafes particularly Cafe Italia and The Mission Cafe (Queen's Park)."

    Bus stop at the end of the road which meant we could travel to major places by public transport - no need for a car. All places we visited were dog friendly and there are two parks very close to the cottage for walks. The cottage provided a dog bowl and blankets. Only thing to improve - better lighting suitable for reading in living and bedrooms. Thanks for a great stay.

  • "We booked the cottage based on the description and photos."

    It’s a nice cottage with decent layout etc. We were disappointed to find some ares in need of a decent clean; the fridge wasn’t over clean, the same could be said for the cutlery drawers. Also, the window sill in the lounge was a bit dusty. The thing we found most disappointing was the covers on the settees; we can only think they had been put there in case dogs decided to jump up (ours don’t). The covers had obviously been used by dogs in the past as they were quite grubby and we had to remove them before sitting on the settees (which were quite uncomfortable anyway). Notwithstanding the above, we had an enjoyable stay in a lovely part of the country.

    Thank you for taking the trouble to bring this to my attention. I am sure you are aware that you can report serious matters to the office, and they will be attended to during your stay. I have informed the caretaker who will look into the matter. I am glad you enjoyed your holiday in the South Lakes. Property Owner

    Lovely decorated with beautiful features, we felt at home. We had all we needed and the cottage was very clean. It was so handy for the buses and lovely walks on the doorstep. Just around the corner to the shops and restaurants of Windermere. With Bowness also within easy reach on foot where we enjoyed a couple of lovely pub meals. The parking at the back of the cottage was ideal. We really didn't want to leave!! Would recommend and hope to return someday.

    Thank you for your feedback. We're really pleased you had a good stay and felt at home. Welcome back. Best wishes Ingle Burrow Team Property Owner

  • "The perfect stay for our family of 4 and 1 dog."

    A cosy but larger than expected cottage.A beautifully decorated home with well stocked cupboards, comfy beds and fantastic bathrooms.A central location near shops and restaurants but a quiet retreat after a busy day. We enjoyed a circular ramble around nearby Grassmere with various lengths of walks. Go prepared with food and drinks. Plenty of restaurants and pubs to choose from and all meals were generous. The lake boat trip a must with several to choose from. This was a very relaxing break and we would love to return one day. Thank you

    The location was excellent with the park across the road The lounge was really comfy and cosy but a better tv and more channels would be good The cleanliness was disappointing to say the least we spent our 1st hour on arrival cleaning the fridge the microwave the bath in the loft room and dusting the tv and the speaker in the dinning room The gardens need real attention there full of weeds and not nice for sitting in the slate crazy paving needs re-laying in places as it is dangerous it moves when walked on causing a trip hazard The beds were really comfy in the double and single rooms but the king size bed not so Overall we still really enjoyed our stay in the lakes this is our 14th year and we hope for many more to come

    It was more spacious than others we have rented in Windermere, having the separate dining room, The super king size bed in the upper bedroom was great to have, although the towels could do with replacing. There were ample glasses, dishes, utensils etc in the kitchen. The sofas in the lounge could be more comfortable. Location great for close access to restaurants, shops and the park across the road for the dog.

    The cottage is located a few minutes walk from the town centre with its wide selection of unique independent shops and restaurants. To explore the surrounding area was easy with many walks from the doorstep and journeys by car and bus on the main routes. It is a well-equipped cottage with many little extras that are not often available in other cottages, especially in the kitchen with a wide selection of utensils and crockery. Parking on the property is available for 2 cars. Easier to reverse onto drive by driving up the back lane from the shops end. Dogs were also made welcome with blankets and dishes available.

All of the dvds were scratched and unwatchable so when travelling with kids and stuck in on an evening it would have been nice to have something to watch. Also would have been nice for some fuel (wood / coal) for the fire.

    Within easy reach of major high street shops and numerous places to eat. There were also enough pubs to visit, some of which are pet friendly. The cottage is one and a half miles from lake Windermere where there are some good shops and cafes. A few hundred yards up the road is a fantastic park for exercising your dogs and other dog owners are very friendly. The only downside was one of the sofas was a bit uncomfortable maybe due to me being a short person. I would recommend this cottage as a place to hire.

The property

Ingle Burrow is a delightful picture-postcard cottage just a short stroll from the centre of Windermere at the heart of the Lake District. Tastefully decorated in a blend of the contemporary and the traditional, this charming terraced cottage is dog friendly and is the perfect base for a family holiday in the Lake District whatever the time of year. This Victorian cottage is built from the local stone and has accommodation across three floors.

Everything is finished to the highest standard creating a warm and cosy feel to this traditional home-from-home cottage.

The living room is bright and welcoming with squashy sofas around the open fire.

There's also a dining area with a wood burning stove, ideal for those chilly evenings when you're not eating outside, and a fully equipped dining kitchen.

There are two first-floor bedrooms, both with an en-suite shower room, one master double bedroom with an elegant metal bedstead, TV and a also a single bedroom.

On the second floor there's a zip and link super king size bed which can be converted to twin beds if required, with a pine washstand and some delightful views out across the open countryside.

Finally, there's the period-style family bathroom with a shower over the bathtub, pedestal sink and WC. The secure paved garden is a glorious sun trap, making it the ideal place for outdoor dining or simply to relax after a busy day sightseeing or walking in the Lakes - your dogs will love it too!

With all the amenities of Windermere on the doorstep, you can leave your cars in the two off road parking spaces provided. Ingle Burrow is in one of the most privileged locations in the Lake District, just a few minutes from the lively and vibrant villages of Windermere and Bowness on the shores of Lake Windermere.

From quirky independent shops to traditional inns and pubs, the cobbled streets play host to everything from tapas bars to local craft ales and Cartmel lamb at the Mason's Arms.

Children (and adults too!) will love Beatrix Potter World or exploring the islands of Swallows and Amazons country on a steamer cruise.

The Lakes Aquarium features sharks and reptiles, and the Lakeland Motor Museum has a superb collection of vintage and classic cars.

Don't miss a trip on the picturesque Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway or the mock-Gothic splendour of Wray Castle. There are good transport links from Windermere to the North Lakes, or take a drive over the magnificent Kirkstone pass to Derwentwater, Keswick, Grasmere and Ullswater for an exploration of Wordsworth country.

Everywhere you go there are world-class walks and cycling routes with outstanding views, and beautiful Morecambe Bay is within easy reach for a picnic on the beach. With its first-class accommodation, Ingle Burrow is an ideal base for a relaxing family or friends holiday any time of year, whether you want to cruise the Lakes on a glorious summer's day or enjoy Christmas in Lakeland.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
