I spent three nights here with my girlfriend and as far as we are concerned ... this place has everything! It's ideally situated, only five minutes from the train station. The apartment was kept spotless. It's cosy and warm; the furniture is nice and the Wi-Fi is smooth. A lot of accessories are made available: there's cups and plates and utensils in the kitchen; a charger for your phones; a drawer full of maps; a notice board covered with posters and leaflets detailing things to do in the locale; and (my favourite touch) the digibox is stuffed with hundreds of movies available for your viewing at no cost!

We did have teeny bit of trouble with the door. The trick is to make sure the door is fully pressed in, then turn the key in the lock while the handle is up.

“great place to unwind after a day of hiking/sightseeing”
Reviewed September 27, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

it was so nice after a chilly day hiking to come back to Red Bank, cook a quick dinner ,sit on the couch and light a fire in the fireplace. we found the kitchen and the entire apartment well stocked with appliances. The apartment is comfortable and relaxing and very quiet.less than a 5 minute walk to the bus stop, the train station, grocery stores, tourist information, and the Elleray Pub, one of our favorites. It has much less traffic than the main road just half a block away. Red Bank is definitely where we will stay on our next trip to Windermere. if, like us, you do not have a car in Windermere you can carry easily a small fake log to burn from the booths grocery store just up the street.

Liked best: Everything.
Liked least: The key pickup did not include instructions for resetting the box, but I think Jane has since corrected that.

This cottage is in a good location. Very cosy, warm and comfortable. Tastefully decorated and very clean.
The only complaint would be the shower, not very powerful, but didnt bother us for 3 nights stay.
All in all a really lovely stay and we would definitely stay there again.

Spent 3 wonderful restful days in Windemere 2 of them wet and rainy, but the house is well appointed, clean and has everything you need. Close to town and only a 20 minute walk to Bowness which helps to walk off the great pub meals and ice creams!
