Lovely clean and comfortable cottage in a great location. Owner was so friendly and helpful with brilliant local knowledge. Value for money, will definitely stay there again hopefully next year.

“Great little place”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here for 4 nights. It was a great little place.
Lounge and kitchen downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs.
Kitchen has everything you need and there was even sachets of coffee and a fresh pint of milk in the fridge, a nice touch. Bathroom had nice powerful shower.
TV in lounge and bedroom. upstairs freeview box did not work and was replaced within a few hours of being notified (great service).
5 minutes walk to the lake and 10 minutes to the centre of Windermere.
Place was spotless and in very good condition.

Central heating timer controlled by next door so the times might need changing now it is getting colder. There is a gas fire we used on arrival before the heating came on.
It is very easy to bottom out your car at the bottom of the steep drive so don't think about it in your Lambo or Ferrari!
As previous review said, could do with coat hooks. We spoke to the very helpful owner about this so there might be some soon.
Also as previous review said, wine glasses were tiny sherry glasses so bring your own :-)

Totally recommended :-)

“Cosy little hideaway”
Reviewed 11 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This is an excellent cosy, compact little place to stay for two people who just want to relax and get away from it all. It has everything you need and is only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Windermere and all its amenities but far enough away to seem like you are in the middle of the woods. Only slight niggle is that we are keen hillwalkers and as it was a bit Moist there was no place to hang damp coats up and (tongue in cheek) bigger wine glasses.

A lovely friendly welcome, great local information provided and a nice place to stay - what more could you ask for. Thanks, I had a great time and would highly recommend.
