    • “Lamb cottage is pleasantly surprising. Being centrally located in expected it to be noisy at some times with passing person etc, however this was not the case. The cottage has all of your home comforts and everything you would need, and it's lovely which (hopefully it doesnt) if it rains in your stay you can have a night in by the lovely log fire. The service from the office is excellent and it's only a stones throw away from the cottage. It is perfectly located for those without a car ( like ourselves) and I would definitely recommend the lamp lighter for food. If you come before the a591 (to keswick) is reopened then I would definitely use the shuttle bus that goes all along the banks of Thirlmere. If your not that good a lighting the stove then Booths sell instant lighting logs and the petrol station nearby sells logs a lot cheaper than Booths (one or two on top of instant lighter log) although having grown up with my grandads open fire I was okay. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.”

    • “We arrived at the cottage later than planned due to a very stressful journey, however, it was a pleasure to find it immaculate and welcoming. It is also well placed for shops and resturants etc. Winderemere is spolit for choice when it comes to excellent places to eat! We were lucky inasmuch as we found a parking space to the rear of the cottage, and as most things are within walking distance we didn't need to use the car very much.”

    • “just returned from this lovely place, excellent location, couldn't fault the place unlike previous reviews regarding parking, yes you might have to park couple streets away not a big deal as you walk around the whole town in ten minutes, we will recommend to our friends also will we be returning, on arrival found the cottage to be immaculately clean through out, and has every thing needed, we had a great time. Also found a fantastic park at the end of the road for the dog walk every morning.”

    • “Lovely two bed cottage in central Windermere, with log burner and comfy couches ideal for those winter days! Kitchen well equiped with plenty storage. Outside there is room to store bikes, and for a small dog to roam around. No parking provided, however we were given a local residents parking disc and easily found a space each day within a street or two of the cottage.”
