About the property

Ideally located in the bustling town of Windermere, Cumbria lies The Burrow, a charming three-storey, stone-built cottage, boasting an off-road parking space to the rear of the property and a permit for more central parking in the town or to the front of the property, making it perfect for a family or group of friends to discover the magnificent Lake District.

Step into the property up three steps and you will find the lounge invites you in to kick off your shoes and watch the TV while you snuggle on the sofas and the electric woodburning-effect fire warms the room.

From here, down the stairs to the lower-ground-floor the kitchen welcomes the chef of the group to prepare tasty meals; with a gas hob and electric oven to assist with your self-catering requirements as well as hosting a handy dishwasher to help clean up.

Also on this floor is the dining room with ample seating for the group to plan their day and a bright and airy conservatory, where you can relax with a good book on the rattan furniture overlooking the patio area.

Climbing the stairs up to the ground floor, discover a delightful single room with a view before moving up another flight of stairs to the first-floor twin room, which benefits from an en-suite shower room with a walk-in shower, basin and WC so you can freshen up between activities.

Retire to the last of the three bedrooms, a spacious double also hosting some storage for you to unpack your belongings.

Back on the ground floor, there is also a family bathroom where the rest of the group can prepare for their day, including a bath, shower over, basin and WC.

To the exterior, the rear of the property offers a patio area with furniture where you can enjoy the last of the sun with a cup of tea and plan the next day's adventures.

Windermere is home to an array of amenities; give the chef a break by ordering takeout from one of the local eateries, or venture into the town to dine at one of the many restaurants such as Jackson's Bistro, or perhaps Francine's a continental-style restaurant specialising in fresh seafood, before stopping off at one of many traditional pubs on the way back.

You will be spoilt for choice when choosing how to spend your days at this property; for a taste of history visit Wray Castle which combines circular walks with interesting stories from history it is sure to be a wonderful day out with the family before stopping for a tranquil stroll around Windy Hall and Holehird Gardens.
