Does what it says on the tin. Cottage has everything you need for a stay in the Lake District. It is close to all local amenities but also set back in a peaceful area.
Awesome view of the lake. Very quiet and tranquil area. Private jetty is technically private but not exclusively to you, it is shared with the surrounding cottages.
You can walk into Windermere by going right out of the cottage, it's a brisk 20 mins away but the views along the way are great.
Chris also cannot be more helpful. We didn't meet but the instructions to get in are very straight forward. Chris was even nice enough to post back a couple of items my partner left which we got the next day.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Excellent holiday home with beautiful views and a perfect location.”

We had a fantastic couple of nights staying in this lovely holiday home. The place itself has everything that you could wish for: a comfortable bed, warm shower, kitchen and lovely views.

The location of the property was perfect for us being a 20 minute walk into Windermere and 5-10 minute drive to Bowness and Ambleside.

Chris ensured that we had all the information we needed and communication throughout the whole booking was excellent.

I would thoroughly recommend staying here!

My partner booked this cottage as a surprise for my birthday.

We arrived at night due to both being at work during the day, so as well as being surprised by the trip itself I was also pleasantly surprised the next morning when I saw we had a beautiful view of the lake!

Christine, the owner, was there to greet us and she was very welcoming and friendly. Very informative, suggesting lots of things around the area to see and do, as well as places to eat. She had also put birthday banners around the living area for me.

The cottage itself is lovely, very modern and beautifully decorated! The kitchen is well equipt with everything you'll need if you're going self-catering, pans, plates, cutlery, oven, fridge freezer, microwave...everything really!

The cottage is also ideally located, a 5 minute car journey to Bowness where we enjoyed a lovely boat trip around the lake.

Thanks for your super and informative Review. Very many thanks for leaving our cottage immaculate. It was a pleasure to meet such a lovely couple. Glad you took the Lake Cruise. Windermere is sometimes called "Little Switzerland" - possibly nicer!

This was our first time staying in a holiday rental rather than a hotel/B&B and we couldn't have been happier. Christine and James provided detailed directions but they were hardly needed as the turning is very easy to find off a couple of main roads.
The cottage itself is a hidden gem set far away from the road with an amazing view of the lake. The decoration and general atmosphere of the cottage allowed us to feel at home very quickly and there were helpful notes dotted all around to help us work everything.

It should be noted that whilst the jetty is private with regards to there not being public access though it's not private to this cottage alone. This cottage is just one of a small group which also have access. It's a lovely walk down to the lake though and a nice place to sit and watch the boats go by.

It was only a short drive to the town centre and also Bowness where there are plenty of attractions and a lake cruise to take you to other shores of Windermere (highly recommend)

The only downside I can think of is the interior doors are a bit stiff so took a bit of effort (and consequently - noise) to shut the bathroom door especially.
Other than that I cannot fault this holiday at all. Loved the location, the facilities were high standard and well designed. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Windermere.

“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.

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).
