    “Granary Nook is smack bang in the centre of Windermere meaning the car (parking permit included) didn’t get used nearly as much as other trips to the Lakes (so many great local pubs.”

    ) There are many nearby lovely walks and runs, there is a park at the top of the cottages street and Bowness is only a mile away (all downhill going!)

We were a little concerned that the cottage may be noisy with it being so close to town but that wasn’t an issue at all, we were only disturbed by cooing pigeons. The secure yard was excellent for our small dogs. The bathroom is on the second floor but the stairs are not steep so even for my 70+ mother in law it wasn’t a problem. Beds comfy, we took our amazon firestick to get Netflix (never sure if TV is going to be smart) and wifi was fine, cooked every night and all utensils/equipment were there, gas central heating and elec fire soon took the late summers evening chill off. Would definitely recommend Granary Nook.
