    “Only thing I would say is provide a stair gate maybe for dogs/kids at bottom of the stairs.”

    We used the clothes airer. Lovely though, location fab beds very comfy nice and warm when we arrived.

The property

Nestled in the thriving town of Windermere, Cumbria, is this slate stone cottage dating back to the 1870's.

Full of character, internally, the property features a cosy sitting room as you walk through the door.

The ideal place to relax after a long day sightseeing - a place where you can put your feet up and enjoy the benefits of the cosy woodburning stove, situated in an attractive stone fireplace.

Step into the open-plan kitchen and dining area, with seating for up to four people, where you can gather together and have a lovely home cooked meal together.

Let's not forget the handy utility area which offers private laundry facilities.

Upstairs has two bedrooms: two king-size doubles with en-suite shower rooms.

To the rear of the property, you will find an enclosed patio garden, with a table and chairs.

Local attractions include the National Trust Wray Castle, a Victorian neo-Gothic castle dating back to the 19th century.

Myrtle Cottage is the ideal property for a group of friends or small families.
