We stayed here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and what an amazing find! We walked easily to both Windermere and Bowness as it was bang in the middle which was ideal! The cottage itself is stunning with beautiful features! Everything you need is provided including a welcome pack with biscuits (for us and the dog) and the important wine! We took our dog and it was perfect and safe with a lovely fenced court yard which got the sun all afternoon! We will be booking up again and have family looking to visit in the summer as well!!

“Fantastic property!!”
Reviewed July 13, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We have just returned from a fantastic break away at the undercroft! It is a beautiful property, very stylish and furnished to a high standard! Prime location with Windermere town centre literally only round the corner! We would highly recommend to friends and family and would certainly return in the future!

“A beautiful, luxurious, and pristinely clean house in a fantastic location. with”
Reviewed May 29, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We had a wonderful holiday at the Undercroft. We will definitely be returning and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends. It is a superior holiday home at a very affordable price. It is well planned, modern and spacious, and tastefully decorated. It is equipped with everything needed for a relaxing getaway. We needed to use our dongle to connect to the internet during our stay, but that was not a problem. The property is in a fantastic location -within minutes of the shops, pubs and eateries, but also within easy access to so many stunning views and lakes. The house had been cleaned to an unbelievably high standard and Alison (the owner) was extremely friendly and helpful at all times. Excellent value for money - sheer luxury without a huge bill!

“Absolutely stunning "cottage" in a gorgeous location.”
Reviewed June 10, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

The Undercroft is a superb, luxurious and great value cottage situated just around the corner from Windermere town itself. Set in the grounds of St Mary's church which is literally 50 feet from the cosy garden. It is an idea base to visit the local attractions, of which there are many!
We were surprised to find the Undercroft is actually part of a several cottage complex renovated from the old chapel of St Mary's, although this in no way detracts from its appeal.
One small word of caution. The entrance to the cottage is down a very slender driveway, which isnt easy to spot on the busy main road.

We had a fabulous time at the Undercroft and wouldnt hesitate to book again. Perfect for a quiet get away or a family holiday with older children (the main living area is upstairs so not ideal for tiny people)

The welcome hamper was a lovely touch too!
