    • “Fabulous Cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Just returned from a week at this stunning cottage, it is beautiful and very well equipped. It is right in the heart of all the shops & cafés, lots of lovely walks to do, easy access to other lakes, not too far from Kendall. There were 4 adults, 2 kids & 2 dogs and we all loved our stay, it would be nice to have a tv in the dining area as that's where we spent the majority of our time as a group, cooking, entertaining with access to the courtyard. The cottage is over 3 floors, lovely shower on the top floor and a bath on the ground floor, great big kitchen/dining area- perfect for entertaining! Will definitely return!”

    Trish M, South Yorkshire, August 2016

    • “Fabulous location for all amenities. Good sized rooms and facilities for a family group.felt like home from home and really enjoyed our stay.”

    Mrs Milner, Bolton, November 2018

    • “We had a really great week in this cosy cottage which had everything you need, however there were a few things that need some attention. 1 - The downstairs bedroom was not very good .... radiator didn't work, the room had not been cleaned properly (hair on pillows and bedding and dirty carpet). 2 - One of the upper sash windows in the sitting room would not close properly ... it looked like the latch had broken which resulted in the window having a gap at the top. 3 - We were a bit surprised that there were no details in the cottage about refuse collection. There were no facilities for recycling, this is the first time we've stayed anywhere for years where this wasn't an option.”

    Mr Sellers, York, October 2018

    • “We had a really good time and the cottage was much closer to all the places of interest than we thought, without being in a noisy area. We would definitely recommend this cottage.”

    Mrs Reynolds, Banbury, September 2018

    • “The walled garden area is what made us choose this accommodation, on the photos it looked really well presented but in reality it was dirty grubby and had cracked window on the joning garage door. The area had not been swept in a very long time, had weeds and cobwebs throughout. There were no brushes etc for us to clean it ourselves.”

    Mr Wright, CRAMLINGTON, July 2018

    • “Walkers rest holiday cottage was in perfect location near to all amenities in Windermere,on arrival it was clean and well presented,ideal for a family break, shops and supermarkets were 2 minutes walk away,plenty of bars and restaurants and 1 & a half miles from lake Windermere (which took about 20mins to walk or use the bus service which was about every 15 mins) we had a fantastic week here”

    Mr Colville, Glasgow, July 2018

    • “three storey with uneven stairs was the worst problem the kitchen and dinning room where excellent the lounge was very nice the Parking at the rear was not clear in the paperwork, yes you have a space to park but getting but getting to it was a nightmare”

    Mrs Pinel, Wrexham, June 2018

    • “Although there is only parking for one car we easily found on street parking nearby so no need for paying on nearby car park”

    Mrs Duckworth, Preston, June 2018

    • “House not suitable for those with limited mobility. Set over 3 floors with extremely steep and uneven stairs. Parking is a real problem. There is one car space but isn't easily accessible and blocked by other users. Roads around the house permit holders only so have to park in a public car park, pay and walk.”

    Mrs Seal, Pontefract, March 2018

    • “The cottage is in a great location however on arrival our first impressions were not great. The entrance to the cottage was shabby and the court yard was dirty and was very unkept. It was full of weeds and cobwebs and the glass in the door in the yard was broken and not child safe . Albeit the majority of the cottage was clean we had to clean the vinyl tablecloth as it had dried food left ! The kitchen was spacious and clean the stairs were uneven and you could have quite easily have slipped. The plus side was the location which was very close to pubs restaurants and about 25 minute walk to the lakes.”

    Mr Bailey, Warrington, September 2018

    • “Garden was absolutely disgraceful, broken gate left in the shed which meant what appeared from the pictures to be an enclosed courtyard was not and no hose pipe which made it extremely difficult with our dogs. Stains on the lounge cushions and throws, stains and hairs on the bedding. When i complained to the local lakes holidays office the lady who dealt with complaint was down right rude & unhelpful. Still feel as if we should have been given a discount as I feel that the property advertised was not a true representation of what it really is.”

    Miss Turner, Walsall, April 2018
