    “I would recommend new seating in lounge as they are worn and have no support.”

    This also applies to both beds in master and double room. Shower on top floor has no pressure with a trickle of water exiting shower head.

    This also applies to both beds in master and double room. Shower on top floor has no pressure with a trickle of water exiting shower head. In regard to times to gain access and leave property, we were disappointed. I know Lakelovers do have an hour difference which is much more convenient. The cottage was in a great central location and quiet area which was a bonus. The cleanliness of the cottage was also excellent.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am glad you liked the location of the property. We are in the process of ordering new sofas for the lounge and we will check the beds and replace all mattresses as required. We will also get the top floor shower looked at to improve the water pressure. We have arranged for an hour later checkout time with our cleaning company and they will review the check in time later this year. We want to do everything we can to ensure our guests have a wonderful holiday at Gillercombe. Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in between the charm-filled Bowness-and-Windermere, is this stone-built mid-terrace cottage, perfect for exploring all the Lake District has to offer.

On approach to this delightful Victorian cottage, you will see its shining bright red door, ready to welcome you into a beautifully presented home-from-home.

Families and friends are invited to share a memorable experience in a stunning part of the country.

Set over four floors, this accommodation makes the most of the bright and airy space inside.

Relax and unwind in the lounge, with the electric fire bringing warmth to a cool winter's evening, or gather around the dining table for a hearty meal with your loved ones.

The kitchen is well-appointed, continuing the modern theme, while the basement houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and an extra fridge/freezer.

Two of the bedrooms are on the first floor; a king-size double with an en-suite, along with a twin.

While the family bathroom follows in a contemporary fashion.

Climb to the second floor to find another double with an en-suite, a 2' 6" twin and a cloakroom.

Use the French doors from the dining room to access the patio, where you can sit with a refreshing beverage on a warm summer's day.

Benefit from a luxury spa membership at The Burnside Hotel, when you a feeling weary from an adventure on the Lakeland fells.

It provides up to eight guests access to the pool, sauna and steam room, plus much more, from 8am-3:30pm.

A short walk away are all the amenities and attractions of Bowness-and-Windermere, followed by day trips to Grasmere, Grizedale and Ambleside.

A stunning retreat in an excellent location.

A variety of boat trips and boat hire are available from Windermere Lake Cruises in Bowness to Brockhole, Ambleside and Lakeside (at the southern end of the lake where the Lakeside Aquarium and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Railway are situated). The World of Beatrix Potter attraction and the Old Laundry theatre are 1.5 miles away. Orrest Head, where Alfred Wainwright was inspired to write his series of iconic guidebooks, is a 30-minute walk to enjoy the spectacular panorama of far-reaching views over the lake and surrounding fells. Brockhole, which offers high wire tree top experiences, is less than two miles away, and the historic villages of Grasmere, Ambleside and Troutbeck are a short drive away. There are also a variety of watersports on offer for the more energetic at marine centres along the lake. The area is ideally situated for exploring all that this region has to offer, whether by foot, bike, car, railway or bus; and is within easy reach of attractions such as the spectacular Langdales, Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top House at Far Sawrey, Coniston, Grizedale Forest Park, with its delightful walks and famous outdoor sculptures, mountain biking and “Go-Ape” adventure park, Ullswater, Kendal, Keswick, stone circles, Roman forts and England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike.
