There was so much to do here including hiring bikes to cycle along the lake shore to Castle Wray, walking to Waterhead and Orrest Head and cetching the ferry back amd exploring the many trails in Grizedale Forest.

  • The weather has been very mixed during our stay, but even on the dullest of days the cottage has been very light and bright. The position could not be better in the centre of town, yet very quiet & the distant views are fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend the cottage to others. Also the welcome pack was very much appreciated. I hope we can return again next year.

    The Watkin Family

  • 23/7/2016- 30/7/ 2016 " A delightful find, Heart of Windermere, stylish property, WIFI, Private parking". A wonderful home in the Lake District. My husband and I use VRBO all the time and have had wonderful experiences but this is by far the best. The location is so convenient because it is within walking distance of town, with restaurants, groceries, coffee shops and even a laundrette right across the street. Convenient parking is also a huge plus since having a car to visit all the sites is very important. The apartment itself is lovely with beautiful views, great beds, nice decor, well equipped kitchen and it was so clean. Joanne, the owner, has thought of everything, right down to a lovely little tray in the bedroom for my change and jewellery. A particularly thoughtful gesture was the cake and milk to start us off, along with tea, coffee and the basics. All in all, a great place... could have stayed for a month!
