“Not a place for a quiet relaxing getaway”
Reviewed November 5, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

person found this review helpful

We booked this 'cottage' (actually a 2 storey terraced house) hoping for a quiet relaxing few days in the Lake District. The house itself if very nice; warm, comfortable and well equipped, with free wi-fi. Unfortunately it is located in the centre of the town and the whole area was absolutely rammed with people whilst we were there. There was no dedicated parking space for the property although we were provided with a visitors parking pass for the surrounding streets. Unfortunately there were insufficient parking spaces for the competing numbers of cars and we were obliged to spend a significant amount of time each evening searching for a place to park. On one occasion we were forced to park over 4 streets away. This was both stressful and irritating. Windermere itself would be a lovely town if it weren't for the crowds of people who cram all the shops, pubs and cafes and Bowness was even worse! If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing break, my advice would be don't stay here.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Lamb Cottage.

We are pleased you found the property well equipped, warm and comfortable for your stay.

We are sorry to hear about the comments you have raised in your review. On Lakes Cottage Holidays website we do advertise the property as "Lamb Cottage is a traditional Lakeland stone mid terrace cottage located in the centre of Windermere." and we do show the approximate location of the property on our map tool, which illustrates the central location of the cottage.

We also advertise that there is one car parking permit available, not a designated car parking space.

We have offices in Keswick, Windermere, Penrith and Carlisle with friendly staff that have knowledge of the area and properties. Our sales office is open 7 days a week 9am – 9pm. If we were contacted, we would of been able to advise you on the location of the property and a member of staff could of searched for an alternative property for you, which may of been more suitable for your requirements.

We hope that the comments you have raised did not detract you too much from your stay in the Lake District and we hope to welcome you to another Lakes Cottage Holidays property in the future.

Kind Regards,

Lakes Cottage Holidays
