“Lovely Weekend break”
Reviewed January 28, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

We’ve just got back from a lovely weekend at the Granary Nook. Set slightly back off the town centre but so quiet you’d think you were miles away from it. Plenty of restaurants and bars (we frequented the Pig). Lake Windermere was only a 20 mins walk and it’s downhill to reach it. Boat rides aplenty at reasonable prices, we took the blue tour (very good).

The nook itself Is very nicely decorated throughout with a quirky poppy theme in the kitchen area. The living area is large enough without getting under each other’s feet.

We didn’t get to sit in the garden mainly due to the time of year and also no key for the back door.

All in all a very pleasant and well maintained property.

“Fab location, great for a family break”
Reviewed November 6, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We stayed for a long weekend at the beginning of November with our son and parents. Granary Nook is a comfortable, centrally located little gem. House was clean and well equipped. Very convenient for restaurants, shops and pubs in Windermere village. Ideal for a family with children. Pet friendly. Would recommend.

“Loved it.”
Reviewed October 2, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

A super location right in the center of Windermere, it was great to be able to forget about the car for a few days.

We stayed for a weekend to enable us to discover more about the south lakes.

Granary Nook was so cosy and has a very efficient heating system. The house is extremely well decorated and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. We ate in on the Saturday night and were able to cook and serve up a meal very easily. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and the shower works a treat.

We just loved it and we shall certainly be booking again.

“Christmas weekend at Granary Knook”
Reviewed December 11, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

I visited the cottage for a weekend stay with my wife, two children and dog.

The cottage is well presented with a homely feel.

The living room is spacious with a traditional cottage style kitchen with all the modern amenities.

The three bedrooms are spacious and well
decorated with very comfy beds.

The bathroom is large and again decorated to a good standard which is in keeping with the cottage and benefits from a nice shower and a boiler system that fills the bath with hot water.

To the rear of the cottage is a good size courtyard.

The cottage is situated in the centre of Windermere (just off the main high street) which is excellent should you wish to visit the town or local towns such as Bowness or Ambleside or spend time walking the hills of the Lake District.

Within Windermere town centre is a wide range of shops and boutiques with a nice children's park a short walk from the cottage.

The cottage is warm and comfy and we will definitely be returning having thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“Fantastic holiday retreat”
Reviewed September 23, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have just spent a magical few days at Granary Nook. I believe it has new owners and they have clearly spent a lot of money modernizing the place.
Its location provided the perfect base for exploring the town of Windermere & surrounding area.
The enclosed courtyard at the back was ideal for evening drinks and provided a safe area for the kids to play in.
We will definitely be going back.
