  • "We had awesome time at the Burrow."

    Walking distance to Windermere and plenary of walks close by. The cottage is well equipped and was spotless when we arrived and the open fire was absolutely fantastic feature we used daily. All the beds are comfy and bed lines lovely and crisp. We will be coming back soon.

  • "Great property but floors very dusty in kitchen, hall and lounge."

    King bed in main bedroom creaked VERY noisily any time you moved but very comfortable to sleep on. Cinema room great. Gutters need fixing front and back so noisy dripping when it rained and showed as slight damp patch on bottom of wall under tv in cinema room when rain was very heavy. We parked right outside the property (tight entrance) but there was no permit left in the property despite the information inside saying there was and to remember to leave it when you leave. Close to lots of shops, cafes and restaurants.

    Thank you for your feedback. We take all comments on board, and we will look at the listing to ensure it is correct. Thank you- The Lakes Cottage Holidays Owner Relations Team Property Owner

  • "Absolutely fabulous property no complaints at all, brilliant location and the media room was a fantastic addition."

    Just a suggestion there wasn't a hairdryer and no where to hang dresses but really wouldn't let that put me off. We will definitely book again.

  • "Lovely property!"

    Clean, comfortable and location is perfect. 100% stay again only problem we had was having to bring our own safety gate for the top of stairs, bar that your cottage is a fab base for exploring the lakes.

  • "We loved our stay at 'The Burrow' feb 4-10."

    Great property and very conveniently placed to local amenities in Windermere. Great week in the lakes with dry weather, making use of the £2 bus fares to Grasmere/Ambleside/Keswick. We've come away inspired by the property and its decor and a great kitchen. Great comfortable bed mattress too. I now need larger TV's at home! - good to have sky and fast wifi. Definitely hope to return.

  • "Excellent, clean, warm and cosy, well equipped cottage - set back in a secluded courtyard 2 minutes walk from the centre of Windermere."

    Entrance to the courtyard is a little tight through a narrow driveway but there is plenty of on street parking nearby if you prefer. We took a large family car and it was fine - parking right outside the door. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely cottage ideally situated in Windermere village 2 minutes walk to all amenities."

    Bowness on Windermere is about a 10/15 minute walk away. The cottage was very well equipped and an unexpected welcome pack had been left of tea, coffee, biscuits and a bottle of Prosecco. We found the parking space a little restricted as there are 3/4 cottages in a small courtyard but it is manageable with care especially when all the cottages are occupied. We would definately recommend this cottage and would stay there again.

  • "The cottage was really fabulous."

    Great facilities and our son particularly loved the games/cinema room. A great place to come back to after a day enjoying walks and water sports. Highly recommend getting a delivery from A day’s walk - yummy local produce

  • "Really lovely cottage with a games/TV room in the basement which was great to use in the evenings."

    The main bedroom was however not King Size and the water pressure from the en-suite shower was rather low. All in all this was a lovely place to stay in the heart of Windermere.

  • "The location is excellent and within a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Windermere."

    Parking was useful but only suitable for a very small car. The property is lovely but we felt there was too much focus on style than comfort. The bathrooms are very small and it was difficult to have a wash in the onsuite as the sink is too small for the waterfall tap fitted. The living room furniture was nice, but not comfortable. When we arrived there was a strong smell coming from the kitchen sink drain which was very unpleasant. We had to keep pouring bleach down to try and clear it. The location is perfect for visiting Windermere.

    The welcome pack of prosecco, coffee, tea and biscuits was a nice touch and the lovely added extra was the Christmas tree! Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again!

  • "The Burrow is a fabulous holiday home and really convenient for plenty of coffee shops, bars, restaurant s etc."

    I took Ecoal and kiln dried logs but didn’t need them as the cottage was very cosy and warm. There was even a Christmas tree

  • "Loved the property and its fantastic location being close to most villages and towns."

    The bus stop and shops being a stones throw away was a delight. The property had everything we needed and was very cosy. The bonus was having two bathrooms too especially with four of us staying and we enjoyed using the fire. Our favourite place to sit was the kitchen at the breakfast bar and watch tv, whilst my parents enjoyed sitting in the living room. It's a shame the basement was out of use, but would certainly have used it as it looked great. As an experienced driver, the access path to drive down was OK but it is quite narrow and some may even struggle but we liked that there was an additional parking permit provided to park on the street also. Whilst we kept the property clean during out stay, we noticed it could have done with a thorough clean. There was quite a bit of dirt and dust gathered downstairs, in particular the living room. We struggled to locate the general waste wheelie bin during our stay, it would be good if this was kept closer to the property for future use. We also love to recycle where we can, if there is an option to recycle we would have preferred this too. Due to covid we tend to strip the beds ourselves and place all the dirty towels etc downstairs by the washing machine, it would be good if the instructions had something outlining what to do with bed linen and towels when departing. Overall, we absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful cottage, it made our first visit to the Lakes perfect. We would love to stay again.

    Quiet location but just round the corner from Windermere centre with good variety of shops and places to eat.

  • "Excellent well appointed clean property newly refurbished I'd guess, location also excellent so many shops/pubs/restaurants within a short walk away."

    Nice to have another car parking permit as well as a apace at the property. As a constructive comment; We could not see any oven gloves although we never used the oven, no heating instructions and it was off - we worked this out as first few days were q cold at night/mornings and the towel radiator needs heat. Whoever put the dartboard in, nice touch but unlit and far too low to use.

  • "Lovely cottage, beautifully furnished, with lots of attention to detail."

    Missing a couple of things, that would totally complete the cottage offering - hairdryer and oven gloves. The only downside was the parking. With all of the cottages let at the same time it was very difficult to get in and out as space is extremely tight.
