“Snug little hideaway in the Lakes”

Just got back from our stay in Windermere at Mysty - must admit on seeing the name I wasn't sure if it was My Sty but we were pleasantly surprised :) It is very small and compact but it's self-contained and has absolutely everything you could possibly need for a short stay. We did have difficulty finding it - perhaps there should be the name or a number on the door instead of a cat but we got there in the end. Very centrally located for all the shops and eateries and a mile and a quarter from Lake Windermere itself (which is a very pleasant walk). Despite instructions we couldn't get the TV signal to work but the DVD player worked fine and there is a selection of DVDs and books available. The owner Sharon is very helpful and has put a lot of thought and effort into utilising every bit of space and into making any stay as comfortable as possible. Sharon also provides supplies of tea, sugar etc. No trip to the Lakes is complete without a cruise on the Lake itself which was great and good value for money. We also ate at the Indian Ocean restaurant opposite Morrison's which was fantastic (see separate review). Brilliantly authentic Indian cuisine, very good service and reasonably priced. The Lighthouse had been recommended but the staff in there were not at all helpful and quite rude. However, in general we found everyone in the village very helpful and friendly and the Lake and surrounding area is beautiful. The only downside for me personally was not having anywhere to sit to eat (other than the bed) - although there is space outside the front door in good weather - and in spite of a good extractor fan once you cook anything the smell (i.e. bacon) lingers and gets into the bedding. However, all in all a very pleasant stay in an extremely quiet space, very relaxing and homely. Not sure it is suitable for anyone of a slightly bigger build though :(

Liked best: The thoughtfulness of the owner in providing all the little extras
Liked least: Nowhere to sit to eat and bedding smelling of cooking due to open plan and close proximity of everything

“Perfect hideaway in the Lakes.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This is a perfect little property, right in the middle of Windermere. We travelled by train and it was really conveniently located just down the hill from the station, about 5 minutes walk.

We initially had some problems finding it, as the address we had took us to the front of the property, when we needed to be at the back. It took us a while to get hold of Sharon but when we did she was straight down to the property to let us in, even though we were really early so we could leave our bags. Once she had cleaned it for us, we went back to the property and she was really friendly and helpful. This was the only time we saw her, but we didn't need to anyway, everything was perfect.

The pictures really don't do it justice, its perfect in every way and theres lots of personal touches: movies, CD's etc to keep you occupied. Theres enough kitchen equipment to cook yourself a good meal too. We used the tables and chairs outside the front door to eat on new years eve as we were lucky with the weather, and it's nice and private there (although not totally as there are entrances to other flats houses that come through the same area).

If you're considering this place, don't hesitate!

“Absolutely Delightful”

Took up a booking in early March 012 (11th to 18th) for what turned out to be this absolute Gem of an apartment, so compact, so comfortable, so convenient, parking outside the door, welcome pack on arrival was faultless, cerials, fresh milk, and loads of goodies, biscuits etc, which was more than welcome as we arrived well after midnight from Dover, Our friends have since booked and enjoyed our own luxurious experience which we're so pleased is thanks to Sharon, who we met on the second day of our stay to ask if she could assist further :):)

Wow, we can't wait to return again in autumn
