“1 night bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Booked the cottage because a friend visiting from Australia was staying there. We caught up for the one night which was most comfortable. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. Our room was lovely, bedding , towels etc were tops! My friends room was absolutely gorgeous I could live there!!!! I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a good location and quality.

We stayed here for 4 wonderful nights in the Lake District. This was our first visit to the Lake District, and the location was wonderfully central for our needs. The location was within steps of the Orrest Head hiking path and the great restaurants of Windermere. Most of the main tourist sights are within 15-20min drive, including Dove Cottage, Beatrix Potter's house, and Aira Force.

The room was average in size, and well kept and appointed. Wendy and Steve kept the room clean, and even washed the carpets one day after we accidentally returned from hiking with dirt/mud on our boots. Breakfast was wonderful with a great variety of choices. The hotel had convenient parking in front of the house.

We would highly recommend the Cottage for anyone looking for a wonderful visit to the Lake District. Wendy and Steve will make you feel right at home.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9

Have just returned from The Cottage having stayed for 4 night's and had a great time the room we had was lovely, very tastefully decorated and very clean. So much choice for breakfast, tried something different everyday but have to say the eggs Benedict was to die for! Going to return soon.

We were so impressed with our stay at this B & B that I am writing my first review on TripAdvisor.We stayed here for 4 nights during a walking tour of the lakes. It was a shame not to be able to stay longer as we were made so comfortable. The property was clean, tastefully decorated with crisp sheets and a comfy bed. We were in room 7 on the 2nd floor, not a very large room but so cosy and romantic with a cute little bathroom and tub,
we ate just across the street at Greys inn, would highly recommend the steaks.

We have stayed here 4 times now and have had different rooms each time, all are very comfortable and furnished to very high standards.The owners are very warm and welcoming and look after your needs brilliantly. The breakfasts are out of this world and to die for especially the full english and the smoked salmon. It is situated very close to all ameneties and the lake is a short walk away.

We only stayed one night here but wish we could have stayed more. The room offered 5 star luxury at a b&b price and was spotlessly clean and tidy. The hosts were extremely warm and welcoming & the breakfast was outstanding-truly in a league of its own. If you are thinking of visiting the lakes we would urge you to stay here, you really cant do better.

Charming guesthouse located in Windermere, our room was on the second floor and was decorated to a high standard, spotlessly clean with a small but lovely bathroom. The bed was exceptionally comfy however, the room can get very warm so we had to leave the window open day & night to let some air in. The breakfast menu offers plenty of choice, the full English was tasty and I also tried the smoked salmon with cream cheese on a bagel which was just as nice.
