  • “The cottage was spot on - clean, modern, warm, well furnished and kitted out with all that we required, in terms of cooking facilities, utensils etc .”

    The location was also a bonus and within walking distance of both Windemere and Bowness, central to lots of other great locations in the lakes and also had a short walk within the grounds to a lakeside and jetty. The owner was helpful and made us feel welcome with some nice additional touches on arrival (bottle of prosecco, cookies etc). We are currently booking our next stay there for 2022.

    Many thanks for your review, much appreciated. Property Owner

The property

T'wit T'woo is a ground floor cottage located in Windermere, Cumbria.

The property was named in honour of the tawny owls which can be found on the estate.

It has been renovated into a contemporary holiday home and rests in an elevated position within the Priory Manor Estate.

Inside you will find an open-plan living area.

The lounge has a large corner corner which can seat up to five people.

This is the perfect place to relax at the end of a long day in front of the flat screen TV and the lovely electric woodburner to keep you nice and toasty.

There is a dining area with seating for up to three people with views out the large windows overlooking the garden and the magnificent surrounding countryside.

The kitchen has modern white units with a splash of colour in the purple walls between the counter and wall cupboards, giving this property a wealth of character.

Down the hall there are two bedrooms; one double and one single, with a separate family shower room.

The bedrooms have been designed with a selection of colourful artwork and bed linen to give the property a lovely homely feel.

Outside there is a small stone area with a table, chairs and a bench provided.

A wonderful chance to sit out of an evening with your loved one and watch the sun set with a bottle of champagne.Off-road parking is available for two cars.

Windermere is home to a number of tourist attractions, including Orrest Head, a hill with sweeping views of the surrounding countryside.

It is a magnificent sight to behold and is a must see.
