“Fabulous setting and just what we wanted in a cottage”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding/honeymoon getaway.

The views and the piece and quiet were just what we wanted, and Chris and James were kind enough to leave the cottage ready for us with a few essentials for us to have a cup of tea when we arrived, before venturing out.

I just wish we had the time to spend longer there!!

Liked best: The small touches like leaving milk and butter ready for us was a huge help!
Liked least: It might have been nice for some wifi to research places to go if we were there longer, but actually for us, the break from the technology was wonderful.

“Amazing views, immaculate property, highly recommended!”
Reviewed July 14, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I cannot recommend this place enough. Stylishly decorated and immaculate throughout. Just a 2/3 minute walk to a private jetty which is amazing to chill out on an evening. The place is conveniently located for Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside etc. Chris & James were extremely helpful with directions and recommendations on things to do. Thanks for a great stay!

“Romantic, Private Getaway”

I booked this cottage for my girlfriend's birthday for 2 nights. I booked it because of the pictures and previous reviews and they were not wrong - the cottage is in excellent condition and everything seems brand new. It is tastefully decorated right through and Christine was so helpful with everything I could not fault anything about this place. There is a 4-5 minute walk down to lake WIndemere with a provate jetty which has amaxing views of lake Windemere. I thought this was a very romantic location and proposed to my girlfriend who I can now call my fiance :) We then went for a lovely meal in the Miller Howe which is a 10 minute walk away and was also amazing. Our whole weekend was perfect from the cottage, the walk to the provate jetty, the weather and our meal at the restaurant. I would like ot thank Christine for everything she did; she put up a birthday banner for me with no fuss and recommended lots of places to visit in the local area.

In summary, if you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway this is ideal. The fact it has a private jetty is a massive bonus as the views are lovely from there. I would recommend this place to anybody that is looking for a place to stay in Windemere (but not my friends as my fiance and I would like it to be our special place).

This little bungalow had both a beautifully decorated interior and stunning view of lake Windermere. We had everything we needed facilities-wise and received a warm welcome from Christine who also gave great advice on places to visit/eat in the area. My partner and I had a lovely morning walking down the private path to the lake-side jetty where we had breakfast in the sun. It was a lovely weekend break from city life and I'm sure we'll go back there in the future.

Thank you for describing your stay and the accommodation so well - very useful for other Trip Advisor holidaymakers. The jetty at Breakfast sounded lovely - since your visit there have been 2 Proposals of Marriage in the Sunset on the Jetty - altogether very romantic - as advertised!

We booked the Lady of the Lake with the intention of using it as a base for a relaxing long weekend in the lakes. It was absolutely perfect for us, being big enough for a couple of people, with all the comforts of home bar a TV - but who goes to the lakes to watch TV?

The house is really nicely decorated and extremely comfortable, but the setting is really what makes it special. It's got a beautiful view of the lake from the front of the house, with access to a scenic jetty only a couple of minutes walk from the front door, and Windermere, Ambleside and Bowness are a walkable distance away.

I cannot fault the service we received at all - unfortunately, Chris wasn't able to meet us on the first day but she really went out of her way to ensure that we had the best possible stay, giving us all the information we needed about the house and the best places to go and see in the surrounding area. You really get the sense that they want you to enjoy yourself, which is a really nice touch!

It's a great place with tonnes of character, a gorgeous setting and a wonderful host. We'd thoroughly recommend it!

Reviewed June 28, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary, the cottage is compact but has everything you will need, it's very clean.
Chris & James really looked after us, and we're very helpful.
The views from the cottage are gorgeous, it was so peaceful & relaxing so if that's what your looking for Lady of Lake is perfect!
Would definitely visit again :-)

On arrival we were met by the owner Christine who was very welcoming and informative. The cottage was very well furnished and clean. There was a lovely view of lake Windermere, and a path that led straight down to the lake.Allocated parking was very nice to have. This was a lovely place for a nice peaceful break
