  • “The house was really lovely in a great location, quiet but accessible for the town centre and walks via Windermere.”

    It was a great space for a family get-together, a lovely large table and loads of crockery & utensils for major cooking moments and a celebration of a big birthday. Though it was generally a wet weekend, the house provided space and comfort for chatting, games and generally having a relaxing time for 8-10 of us (3 were day visitors). We all loved it, and there were plenty of compliments about the house which felt like home for the weekend. We also had a visit to the spa & hotel facilities, ...

    It was a great space for a family get-together, a lovely large table and loads of crockery & utensils for major cooking moments and a celebration of a big birthday. Though it was generally a wet weekend, the house provided space and comfort for chatting, games and generally having a relaxing time for 8-10 of us (3 were day visitors). We all loved it, and there were plenty of compliments about the house which felt like home for the weekend. We also had a visit to the spa & hotel facilities, and though not used on this occasion, looked a superb addition to the weekend for another occasion. The only downside was the heating on the top floor - both evenings, the members of the family staying up there were cold and the heating would not go on again when the controls were used. The beds in the twin bedroom were also uncomfortable. However, the rest of the house was warm and beds extremely comfortable, and would really recommend. A great weekend overall, and would stay again! Thank you to the owners.

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.
