Getting around

Windermere is the nearest railway station. The buses stop just 1 minute from the front door at a location adjacent to King Street Car park (which doubles as the market place on Wednesdays) and from there you can travel North to Grasmere and beyond to Keswick or south back to Windermere and on to Kendal.

The keys Are stored in a safe at the property So you can arrive whenever suits you. I use a professional housekeeping company who are based in Ambleside and are available to assist if there are any problems during your state.

House rules

The property has quite steep stairs to the second floor so may be unsuitable for elderly or disabled guests. I have a policy of no children under 12 as the decor is not suited to many young families; white walls, white furniture and glass ornaments throughout. I make occasional exceptions where the family is aware and comfortable with such an environment. I do not allow pets at all.

A weeks let begins on Friday or Monday, short lets run from Friday to Monday or Monday to Friday.

“Home from home annual visit”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2020

Our friends and I love this cottage. We visit The Lakes every year in March and have stayed in a number of cottages over the last 20 years but this is definitely the best. Lovely living accommodation with everything you need. Comfortable and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms- great showers too. Very clean throughout and a thoughtful welcome gift on arrival.
