Lovely cottage with all the amenities you could need. Spent a lovely few days exploring the area and the nearby Hawkshead village. Excellent location for getting out and about. Beautiful setting and coming from a city so quiet at night. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Gillbank Cottage has everything you need for a stay in the Lake District. Located close to a number of venues and sites with easy access to walking and hiking destinations. Owners attentive to their guest needs. The only challenge is for those not used to driving on very narrow roadways in the UK, the roadways around Gillbank take some getting used to and require map & GPS navigation.
The cottage is just off a quiet road yet is a quick drive or 20 min stroll to the village where there are shops, pubs and a bus service. The house is comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped. There are good walks from the doorstep. The owner, Geoff went out of his way to be helpful, even giving us a lift from Windermere station when we unexpectedly had to arrive by public transport. Our 3 night stay was too short to visit all the nearby interesting places, so hope to be back.
We had a wonderful time at this place and also paid a visit to the Kings Arms Pub in Hawkshead... it's just a 15-20 mins walk. The accommodation is very well equiped and spotless clean. There is parking on site for one car. Not sure whether I should recommend too much because otherwise it might not be available for our next stay. ;-) Thanks Geoff and family!
A lovely stay in a lovely cottage in a really quiet location. The owners obviously love this cottage and it shows in the care and attention to detail throughout. The personalised welcome pack was a real treat! We will be back!
Great views from every window! The cottage had everything we needed, fire, TVs in lounge and kitchen. Kitchen is very well stocked. Great pubs and restaurants close by too.
