“A lovely apartment”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This apartment is nicely decorated, spacious, light and airy - much nicer than the exterior and communal entrance areas would suggest. It is in an excellent location; handy for railway and bus stations, and supermarket. A lovely, easy walk to to Orrest Head starts just across the road with views from the top that more than repay any effort required. The fish and chip shop next door is good, and 'Hooked', the fish restaurant in the town is excellent, if pricey. The kitchen is perfectly adequate so cooking-in is a cheap and relaxing option. The parking space, whilst welcome in a town with very little parking, is something of a challenge to get into and out of at first, though with practice, it gets easier (perhaps bring a small/old car!).

“What a find! Lovely place :)”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well, we will certainly be booking this brilliant apartment again! It is so central in Windermere, so close to the bars etc. We travelled to the lakes to take part in the Great North Swim and we would be hard pressed to have found somewhere better as a base. It took 30 mins ish to walk to the bowness ferry which was a lovely walk and day out. Excellently equipped apartment, and very modern. Thanks Jane...we will be back!

We easily found the flat from the directions given. Once into the apartment we found it to be light, spacious and well furnished. The kitchen is very modern and well equipped with good quality equipment and easily managed.The flat is well situated near the Tourist Information Centre where many of the walks around Windermere commence. There are many restaurants and coffee houses within walking distance. The Lake is an easy walk away and a bustling place to be.

We stayed for 2 nights in Caxton house and it was very well furnished, clean, well equipped, with good sized rooms and within easy walking distance to all local amenities.

The flat was very easy to find and instructions were clear on how to get the keys and into the apartment. The apartment itself is laid out very well with a narrow hallway leading to bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and living room.

The apartment is a 2 minute walk into Windermere town where you can find a selection of pubs, shops. cafe's and other amenities. A short drive (20 mins ish) up the road is the picturesque village of Grasmere which has more shops and restaurants. Due to the weather we weren't able to go on any walks up the hills but we did see a few hardcore walkers so I imagine it would be easy to find a trail when the weather is nicer.

All in all I would highly recommend Caxton House, it was a great place to stay and we would gladly come back for another stay!

Thank you!

As previously mentioned you could be put off when entering by the back entrance. Although, once inside no 3 it's lovely and spacious. Comfy bed, lovely shower and everything you'd need in the kitchen. We weren't very lucky with the weather, we did take a couple of DVDs with us, we couldn't get the Xbox to work for DVDs , (we put new batteries in) so we put the DVD in the TV in the main bedroom, the remote didn't work there either , (again with new batteries) and unfortunately 'lost' my DVD as it wouldn't come out of the DVD player!
Apart from that , It's the perfect location, lovely walks, Bowness, bars, cafés, shops, supermarkets all within easy walking distance. We had a wonderful stay, just lovely to get away for a couple of nights. We would definately stay again ( I might get my DVD back )
Fantastic communication with Jane when booking the property, very helpful.
Thank you Jane and Darren

My boyfriend and I stayed at Apt 3 Caxton House from the 9th-13th June. I agree with previous comments that you could be put off by the exterior and entrance but the apartment itself is very nice and in a good location. The rooms are big and airy and equipped with the basics to provide a comfortable stay. We certainly felt very much at home and slept very well. We did feel a few small improvements would make all the difference such as wi-fi, a 2nd bed side unit in the master bedroom and a few more pictures/mirrors on the wall to enhance the character. The bathroom is nice and modern and there is a huge shower although we did find water seems to go everywhere despite our best endeavours to control it & not be too zealous in the shower! The parking space is really useful and it's a short walk into Windermere/Booths/ the train station. Overall we had a lovely stay and would recommend Apt 3, Caxton House.
