The perfect B&B for a relaxing break or to come back to after a hard day of hiking up mountains! The room we stayed in was small but perfectly formed! Very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, couldn't ask for more. Didn't meet Steve but Wendy was very friendly and made us feel very at home. I would highly recommend... More

Just got back from a 2 night stay at the cottage. When we booked there was only 1 room left and that was room 2. We have stayed in various places around Windermere before and the reviews of the cottage made us book. We were not disappointed in our choice at all. A very warm welcome awaited us and the... More

This was a spur of the moment getaway, and we are so glad we picked The Cottage. Although it was on the main road, it was set back and we had a room at the back of the property so traffic noise wasn't a problem. Breakfast was excellent with 14 different choices as well as the usual cornflakes and yogurts.

What a special find this little place is! Owners are lovely, rooms are superb, breakfasts are out of this world and it's a two min walk in to town or orris head depending on how energetic you feel lol! I can't recommend this place enough and the prices are not silly either!

Had three nights here. Absolutely brilliant. Stephen & Wendy were very welcoming & helpful in regard to surrounding area. Breakfast excellent. We had room 8, which was very quiet at back of hotel, bed extremely comfortable. En suite tiny but serviceable. Would highly recommend.

This is a very late post as we visiting a while ago! However, it's so memorable that it's worth a review. After returning from a weekend in Windermere at a different B&B it really brought home how top notch the cottage is! I won't be going to Windermere unless staying here. Rooms great, fantastic amenities and parking which is a... More

We stayed at the cottage for a little break after we got married. The owners were welcoming and friendly, room was spacious. Loved the uneven walls and four poster bed, which was so comfy. Breakfast was amazing and the choice was excellent; I wished we had stayed a week so we could try everything on the menu. Great location, away... More

The guesthouse is situated a very short walk from the main town which is perfect when coming home from an evening out. It also makes a great starting point for many walks. The owners were lovely, very welcoming & provided help/suggestions when we were planning our days out. Everything you could wish for was provided, a lovely comfortable bed for... More
