We were warmly greeted by the owner and made to feel at home and very welcome. We stayed in room 7 which was fabulous and the bed was amazing, long soak in the bath... More

Our first day as Mr and Mrs and our first but certainly not the last trip to this beautiful place. The Cottage was clean and our room was full of character, breakfast was fab! Location was ideal with places to eat close by. Thank you for letting us stay at your lovely place, we will be back!

We loved our weekend away. Perfect location, wonderful owner and lovely room. I don't know what else to say about this place. We booked last minute and have no regrets at all. We will definately go here again if we return to Windermere.

Enjoyed our four night stay here in room 4. The room and ensuite were immaculate. Large TV with plenty of channels if needed. Breakfast was excellent with loads to choose from and very friendly service. Would stay here again.

We stayed recently for 4 nights in room 8 and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was gorgeous, very tastefully decorated with THE comfiest bed I've ever slept in. It was very cosy and we were very well looked after & the breakfasts were amazing. The only downside was that the bathroom & shower cubicle were very small, but... More

Wendy and Steve gave me a warm welcome and we had a good chat. After long days of exploring the Lake District's little gems it was wonderful to relax in Room 9 which was... More

My husband and I had a very comfortable stay at The Cottage, the room was lovely and the old style four poster bed was very a nice touch. The breakfasts where excellent and Wendy very kindly brought some soya milk for my husband so he could have it in his coffee. I would highly recommend as it was good value... More

Stayed at the end of May our first time staying in Southern lakes, from Tripadvisor we chose The Cottage. Could not have chosen better, off Street parking was straightforward and for the four nights we were staying we did not move the car once, the location being ideal for Windermere town (with all its restaurants) and the bus station, Our...
