After looking for a last minute getaway with my partner, we noticed the cottage and was impressed by what we saw. Thanks to their on-line booking form, we were able to a last minute room on the Wednesday night and arrives at 4pm the next day.
The B&B -
The Cottage is a beautiful little place with only 9 rooms, 2 of which are in a separate building next to the main house. We were greeted by Sue, who was lovely and ensured we knew about all the local amenities and attractions. We were definitely made to feel at home when we arrived.
The Room -
We stayed in room 7 which is on the top floor, right at the end of the corridor. This room was absolutely beautiful and very romantic. It was far better than in the pictures and despite other reviews saying it is quite small, is the perfect size for a couple to stay in.
The bed was beautifully made up and incredibly comfortable. The feather pillows also made every night we stayed blissful.
The room has an en-suite bathroom with good shower. There was also a TV with freeview and a nice chair to sit if you wish to sit and read at.
In the words of the modern youth - EPIC! I've never had such a lovely breakfast in my life. Service, atmosphere and food were all perfect and really provided the best start for a long day walking and hiking.
When we arrived in the dining room, we were greeted by a dresser with several juices, cereals, fruits and yoghurt. We were then offered toast and a choice of hot drinks.
On the first day, myself and my partner both had the Full English Breakfast which far exceeded any expectations. The 2nd morning, I had the Sweet French Toast which was also delicious!
I STRONGLY recommend The Cottage to anyone wishing to visit the lakes. It is placed in the heart of Windermere and allows for easy access to Heswick, Bowness, Ambleside and the Cumbrian mountains.
I will be returning to the Cottage in the future for sure!
