    “Perfectly located, Lamb Cottage has everything you need in a home from home, and everything works.”

    It is cosy, clean, comfortable & well equipped and we’ll be more than happy staying there again. Next trip I will try & remember to take a torch, it is not easy reading the numbers on the key safe located in the outhouse.

The property

Lamb Cottage sits in the heart of Windermere, an ideal location from which to explore the beautiful Lake District. Built from the local stone and finished with plenty of comfort and contemporary style, Lamb Cottage would suit a family, friends or couples who want to enjoy everything this lovely region has to offer, whatever the time of year. As you step through the door of this traditional mid-terrace cottage, you enter the warm and comfortable living room with its wood burning stove and cosy leather sofas.

It's the ideal place to kick back and relax on a chilly evening with a glass of wine or a local craft beer.

The fully-equipped kitchen is light and airy and has access to the patio garden.

Upstairs are two pretty bedrooms, one double and one twin room, which share the family bathroom with bathtub, overhead shower, WC and wash basin. The lovely patio garden is a real sun trap, ideal for relaxing and dining on those balmy summer evenings.

It's fully enclosed making it ideal for children and dogs.

There's a parking permit for one car but with all the amenities and public transport on the doorstep you'll be able to leave the car at home as you explore Windermere and nearby Bowness. Lake Windermere with its famous steamers is at the very heart of the Lake District and it's just minutes from Lamb Cottage.

Windermere village is filled with quirky shops, brilliant modern restaurants and welcoming inns while Beatrix Potter World at Bowness is a must visit for any family with young children.

Don't miss a steam train ride on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway or a trip to the award-winning Aquarium Of The Lakes. A stunningly scenic drive over the Kirkstone Pass takes you to the North Lakes where you can explore Wordsworth Country around Keswick and Grasmere.

There are plenty of family activities including Go Ape and the Kong indoor adventure centre, and adults will enjoy a trip to romantic Lake Ullswater and perhaps a meal at the world famous Sharrow Bay Hotel, home of the sticky toffee pudding.

Day trips to Morecambe Bay, Hadrian's Wall and historic Carlisle are just some of the sights you can see with ease from your base at Lamb Cottage. For a stylish and comfortable home away from home Lamb Cottage ticks all the boxes, making it the ideal getaway for family, friends or couples at any time of the year.
