  • Mrs Guinness

    “Lovely, well equipped house which felt like a home rather than a rental.”

    We were pleasantly surprised to find that a new kitchen had been fitted and the chairs in the dining room had been replaced with lighter and more comfortable ones than the straight-back wooden ones shown in the pictures - new pictures of the kitchen and dining room would enhance the details on the website. ...

    We were pleasantly surprised to find that a new kitchen had been fitted and the chairs in the dining room had been replaced with lighter and more comfortable ones than the straight-back wooden ones shown in the pictures - new pictures of the kitchen and dining room would enhance the details on the website. The only major drawback we found was that parking in front of the house, or indeed anywhere on the road, was not often available and though there is a dedicated parking space at the rear of the property, it is very steep and uneven - we feared for the underneath of the car a couple of times! However, this was definitely not enough to affect our overall enjoyment of Gillercombe and the added plus of a pass to the pool at a nearby hotel went down a treat; we visited shortly after they opened each morning and found that we were usually the only ones in the pool.

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 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.
