    • “We really enjoyed our stay at Fairoak. Having been to Windermere before but stayed in a hotel we thought we would try a holiday cottage for a change. The cottage is ideally located in the heart of the town centre and within short walking distance for various amenities including supermarket, restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. There is a private car parking space at the back of the cottage which is really convenient for loading and unloading especially with small children. The cottage itself is very homely and spacious. It was clean and has been very well kept. There was plenty of room and it has everything you would expect for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. In particular the kitchen is well equipped including all the essentials, and the Wi-Fi was easy to connect and great to have to enable us to plan our outings. Also, the beds are extremely comfortable making for a good night’s sleep especially as it is also very quiet and peaceful at night. We would definitely recommend Fairoak to others and would also stay again ourselves as it is great holiday accommodation with that home from home feel.”

    • “On arrival in Oak Street, we have to pass the cottage, go up HAZEL street and take the first turning left, the cottage is east to find as are the keys are in the Key Safe. The kitchen is small but well equipped and well cared fore. To the left is the dinning room, again well appointed On the right is the hall door, to the left is the sitting room again well appoihted and clean, next left is the front door, to the rigth are the stairs leading to a single bedroom infront of you, a family shower room to the right. Back to the top of the stairs and up 3 steps to the left is the corridor leading to a twin room on the left and a double en suite in front. Everything is well appointed. However the ensuite is a macerator ensuite so is liable to flooding and the shower does not keep warm all through a normal length shower. It is also liable to flooding. For a holiday let it is adequate for sleeping and eating in, not much else. it is situated at the shops end of Oak Street and has a nice park at the top end. At the bottom (it is on a hill) is a Co Op on the corner with a cafe on the other corner. It is close to the centre of the village with many eateries and a fair sprinkling of pubs within easy walking. There is also a Sainsburies close by. Down the hill to the left of the village are hotels, pubs parks and within 1 mile bowness on the edge of lake Windermere with plenty of ferries to all attrections on Windermere lake. Lovely.”

    Mr Holbrook, Kidderminster, August 2018

    • “The cottage is very well equipped and clean and comfortable. The only slight problem was that the en suite toilet works on a macerator and only allowed limited use.”

    Mrs Ramsden, HUDDERSFIELD, July 2018

    • “This cottage was lovely - the rooms were bigger than anticipated and ideal for a family of 5. The cottage was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Clear instructions were issued beforehand and were visible throughout the property re the operation of appliances etc. It is situated in a very central location - handy for restaurants, pubs and shops in both Windemere and Bowness-on-Windemere. It is also only a short drive from many activities located throughout the Lake District. We had a fantastic time and look forward to returning one day.”

    Mrs Beveridge, Glasgow, March 2018

    • “The photographs of Fairoak were enough to put me off booking it but the reviews convinced me to take a chance. We really were pleasantly surprised. The house is light, spacious, extremely comfortable and well appointed. It is much bigger than it looks in the pictures, is lovely and warm and perfect for us as a young family. I can highly recommend, we'll be staying again!”

    Mrs Rolland, Ware, March 2018
