  • "The location of the property is perfect."

    The cottage is beautifully decorated just to my taste. There are fantastic walks in Windermere, we walked 75 miles in 6 days!! I didn't want to leave..

  • "The cottage was nice, very cute and quirky which is what we expected."

    However, when we went to cook one evening, the cupboards were dirty and the pans were not clean. Also the facilities are very minimum, a lot less than I have found in other cottages I have stayed in. It was also advertised as having books and games, there were none. There were a couple of good walking books to get ideas from.

  • "Location and communication great - a great spot, easy walking distance to Windermere."

    However: Should make it clear on listing RE restricted head height - difficult to shower comfortably or walk around kitchen if you’re over 6 foot Broadly clean, but needs a deep clean in some areas (behind bed, bathroom floor) Facilities were limited in kitchen - corkscrew poor, no kitchen foil - some basics I’ve always found in other properties were just not available Overall the property was very dated and needs some TLC.

  • "Nice place in Windermere, tucked up a quiet little road Secret nook is a great little base to explore the lakes from."

    Off street parking and not being too far away from bars and restaurants of Windermere town is a bonus. All of the facilities you need on a weekend away
