    “We had such a great time at the house in Windermere.”

    You can walk to the shops, cafes and pubs, and the sights of the Lake District are so easily accessible via car or bus. It’s so well set up for families, clean and as described. The rooms are all a good size and the beds are very comfortable. We’d love to come back! Thank you.
