About this location

The Lake District

The Lake District really is a holiday destination perfect for all seasons. Whatever the purpose of your holiday - maybe walking on the fells, fishing or sailing on the Cumbrian lakes, touring, visiting historical sites, photography or just relaxing and getting away from it all then The Lake District is for you.


The Lake District well known for its natural beauty and wide variety of outdoor activities, also offers a wealth of superb visitor attractions, festivals and events for all the family.

Step back in time at one of South lakeland's historic house or fascinating museums, relax on a lake cruise or stream railway or follow in teh footsteps of great literary characters like William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, who lived in the South lakes and whose homes you can visit.

Children can come face to face with animals from around the world at two wildlife centres, an aquarium and a sheep and wool centre or enjoy a magical indoor recreation of Beatrix Potter famour characters. the whole family can explore deep underground in a late mine too.

If you are looking for a souvenir of your visit there are working potteries, photographic, art and craft galleries, design studios and plenty of other shopping opportunities.

For those who want to get active, there's a climbing wall, leisure centre and high wire experience in Grizedale Forest!

These are just a few ideas for great days out in South Lakeland.

"Perfect Stay in a Perfect Place"

I do not usually write reviews but after returning from Windows I felt I had too. The location is absolutely perfect for families, walkers, sightseers, basically anyone who wants to explore the Lakes for any reason!!

Apart from the location which is ideal you have a gorgeous, clean and incredibly well presented apartment to return too after a walk or couple (or more) pints in any of the excellent local pubs on your doorstep, this really was a delight. It felt like my wife and our 7 month old baby were still at home, just now with incredible views!

The information provided in the welcome pack was brilliant and as we ate in on a number of nights and ordered take always, we were provided with information not only on all of the local restaurants, (which was excellent and very accurate) but also on local take always, a really nice extra touch. The kitchen has everything you need and the bedroom and views really topped off what is an already excellent apartment.

Finally I have to say that you can see how proud and how much the owners love the place. I am sure they will stay there themselves as there are many little additions that they do not need to add but clearly due to their pride in the apartment have, none more so than the TV in the bathroom! Saturday night watching the TV, in the bath with a glass of wine after a long walk has to be one of the most indulgent and satisfying parts to my stay. Thank you Windows we will be back!!!

"night repairs outside property"

we stayed for seven nights, however 3 of these nights we had little or no sleep due to night maintenance directly outside this property. The company carrying out these repairs informed me that contact… More

It is disappointing that the guests enjoyment of their holiday was disrupted by BT repairs over the road from Windows. I had no knowledge of them, maybe that this was communicated to the previous weeks guests but was not passed on to me. The urgent works were by BT and were only scheduled to be for 2 nights but overran. BT advised me that they finished at a reasonable hour but I have no confirmation of this. I asked for compensation from BT on the guests behalf but this is still with BT. I appreciate there was disruption to the guests stay but this was outside my control
