The Den is a unique space within the Lake District - a Scandinavian style BBQ cabin. A large BBQ pit in the centre to sit around provides a cosy relaxing evening space, and a place to cook! WiFi, Fridge, Microwave, Kettle & Nespresso. Bedding provided, and a heated blanket! 8 minutes by car to Windermere, 5 minutes to Kendal. Easy access to a bus stop and cycle lane. Dales Way very close by. A camping-type toilet and sink (hot & cold water) next to the cabin. Dogs welcome £5/night extra.
Set in 2/3rds of an acre of beautiful gardens with private countryside views. Off street private and secure parking is provided. Toilet is located next to The Den in a separate shed. The sink has running hot & cold drinking water. Please note there are not shower facilities, but the sink with running water is suitable for taking a daily wash.
We are about half way between Kendal and Windermere. The main cycle lane into the Lake District is directly across the road, as is the Dales Way walking path. The Den is in a semi-rural setting with views to the surrounding countryside. For clarity's sake, during busy rush hours there is some traffic noise from the road, but evenings and nights are typically quiet. Please note that we are not the Windermere Camping Site, despite the AirBnB map showing it close by!
  • Very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay here. It made our trip to the Lakes that extra bit special. Thank you for the recommendations Yassmine for where to go we enjoyed everything that you suggested. The room and facilities were fantastic. We were also very pleasantly surprised to meet the Shetland Ponies and Gusto! I highly recommend!

  • The Den is a beautiful made space and holds the most relaxing atmosphere. Matt and Yassmine have thought of everything, providing guests with charcoal, WiFi, tea and coffee, etc. They are also such friendly and responsive hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the den and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, quirky place (the bbq is an amazing feature). Thank you both!

  • Booked for Xmas present for my girlfriend and what a great choice I made. The hut was absolutely stunning from the moment we arrived. Location is also accessible from a number of viewpoints and amenities. The fire pit is a lovely touch where we made dinner. Shetland pony’s were a nice little surprise too. The hit was slightly cold, however to be expected in Feb. Highly recommend staying in this beautiful hut and we will be back!

    Joshua2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lot of fun, even in winter. Just be sure to bring enough coal if it's cold and rainy to use not only for the bbq but also to keep warm. The heated blanket is a great idea. The room was spotless and very well organised. Bbqing inside works amazing! We had some perfectly cooked steaks. The toilet (no shower) is outside of the cabin, in rainy/snowy weather it's less then ideal. But this is communicated in the ad so not a complaint, just a heads up for people checking this location out.

    Twan2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect space and lovely family thank you for a lovely weekend 😃 Woke up on r last day to snow and the two ponies waiting to say hi in the morning great addition

  • Amazing little den in a great location

    Christopher2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous hut! We had such a wonderful time and the hosts are just as amazing. Travelling all the way from London was definitely worth the stay and would recommend to anyone. The electric blanket and fire were an absolute savour.

    Character cottage in the heart of Bowness. Walking distance from all amenities , yet set back in a private location behind trees. With parking and lovely garden this is the perfect place to explore the beautiful surroundings.
    FOXGLOVE COTTAGE IN WINDERMERE LAKE DISTRICT Foxglove Cottage lies in Bowness, one of the Lake Districts most popular villages, with its many shops, inns, cafes and restaurants leading down to the beautiful lake Windermere. Foxglove cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the outstanding natural beauty and to walk to local restaurants for a spot of dinner and maybe glass of wine or two. The end property of three traditional lakeland cottages, Foxglove Cottage is a short walk from Bowness village and bay and yet remains private, hidden behind trees and shrubs. A shared drive leads up to the cottages and Foxglove is on the far end with lovely private garden to the rear. The side entrance leads into the well equipped kitchen/dining room. A single step leads up to the oak beamed sitting room. The room has comfy sofa and arm chairs, and , of course , the obligatory log burning stove. A most comfortable and cosy place to relax after a long walk in the beautiful surrounding area. A narrow staircase leads to the upstairs floor, on the landing is the first bathroom with bath and overhead shower. A few more steps lead onto the main landing off which there are two bedrooms, one the master double, with en-suite whirlpool bath and overhead shower, the second a pretty twin bedroom. At the rear of the cottage there is a lovely private garden, surrounded by shrubs and trees. there is a dining area where you can perhaps have a barbecue and enjoy a glass of rose in the spring/summer. This is a perfect place to stay for either couples or a small family, where the amazing area of the Lake district can be easily explored and just a short walking distance you can pop out to wine and dine in the evening before returning to a cosy relaxing cottage. The Location The linked towns of Bowness and Windermere lie east of Lake Windermere, where Bowness is at the waters edge, with the town of Windermere set about a half mile away above the lake. Each is a busy community of shops, cafes, restaurants and attractions, serving both the local community and our visitors to the Lake District. Perhaps the biggest attraction is the bay at Bowness, a sweeping crescent of waterfront and adjoining parkland, where you can enjoy a walk by the shore or find a quite place to picnic. At the bay you will find the piers and the famous Windermere steamers, which offer boat trips up and down the ten - mile reach of the lake. Here you can also hire rowing boats and motor powered boats, which can be taken by the hour to explore the lake and it islands for yourself. Other popular attractions are the World of Beatrix Potter, the Windermere Steam Boat Museum and a little south of Bowness the Blackwell Arts and Crafts house, one of the most important surviving houses from the turn of the 20th century. The house is a superb example of the Arts and Crafts movement architecture, where it occupies a stunning position overlooking Windermere and is open to the public as a gallery for craft and applied arts. North of Windermere is Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Center. Set on the lakeshores the main house is surrounded by beautiful gardens where you will find a huge adventure playground, café, shop and exhibitions along with a host of information about the National Park. For visual entertainment you have the Royalty Cinema in Windermere, and the Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness, staging a lively annual season of music, theatre, comedy and film. There are plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants, where for me the best is by far Jericho’s in Windermere. Owned and run by Jo and Chris Blaydes, the welcome is always warm, the setting perfect and the cuisine delicious. For a good country pub atmosphere there is the Queens Head at Troutbeck, about 2 miles from the main village the inn offers fine beers, good food and roaring fires in winter months. For the big walks and big landscapes you will have to travel a bit further into the park, however there is a good local walk up onto Orrest Head, which begins from Windermere, just opposite the railway station. Anecdotally it was the first ever walk for Alfred Wainwright where the view from the summit was said to have changed his life and set him on a lifetime of fell walking and the production of those much loved walking guides. Also quite local are the fells to the south of Bowness. Although not mountain high, they offer a magical rolling countryside rising above the lake with magnificent views. Travel a little further afield and you much to explore. South of the villages, at the foot of Windermere, is Newby Bridge and Lakeside where the steamers terminate. Here you will also find Fell Foot Park for boat hire, fishing and the National Trust Gardens. East lies kendal, the capital Town of South Lakeland. A host of good shopping, restaurants and a busy cultrural scene with the likes of the Abbot Hall Art Gallery and The Brewery Arts Center. At the northern head of the lake lies Ambleside, a popular town with cinema, pubs, restaurants and huge selection of outdoor and climbing gear shops. Once you past the head of the lake you are within easy rach of the big fells such as the Langdales, the forest of Grizedale and the other great lake in the south, Coniston Water.
    The outstanding natural beauty, beyond compare! Convenience of local village with it's selection of restaurants and shops.
  • Lovely traditional Lakeland cottage, super cute and brilliant location. Stayed here Friday to Sunday for my partners birthday weekend away. The cottage is very cute and cosy with lovey wooden beams and traditional decor. Kitchen has excellent amenities and the place is lovely and clean. The location is just perfect, tucked away behind trees yet a minute walk from the centre on Bowness. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

    Bowness on Windermere , Cumbria, United Kingdom

    Fermain Cottage is a charming lakeland home that has been lovingly renovated over the years to a high standard. It is a three storey property on a peaceful road, just a very short walk from Ambleside town centre. With ample parking for two vehicles, it is a perfect base from which to explore everything the Lake District has to offer. A tranquil, cosy and memorable place to stay, for up to five people. We are a strictly dog-free cottage.
    The front door opens straight into a newly renovated and well equipped kitchen area. The oven, gas hob and microwave gives you plenty of cooking options. There is a fridge / freezer, kettle, Nespresso Coffee Machine and dishwasher. There are plenty of pots, pans, crockery, glassware and cooking utensils - everything you need for a self-catered holiday. Stone floors lead through to the living room where there is a dining table / chairs and two sofas. There is a wall mounted television and a wood burning stove which is lovely to sit by in the evenings (please bring your own logs). There are some books and games kept in the living room which you are welcome to use. The house is fully centrally heated throughout and the controls are on the first floor landing. The bathroom is a stunning focal point of the home. After a long walk in the hills you can take a soak in the claw-foot tub, or have an invigorating shower with our complimentary toiletries. There is also a double bedroom on the first floor and laundry facilities. The top floor houses a large second double bedroom and a smaller single bedroom. There are excellent views of the surrounding fells from the top floor. On prior request we can accommodate a sixth person on a pull-out bed in the single bedroom. It is a full size single mattress bed (see photos) and would probably be best suited for children. There is an additional charge of twenty pounds if you would like the sixth bed to be made up. Stair-gates and a travel cot can be assembled prior to your arrival, upon request. Being a traditional lakeland cottage, the staircases are quite narrow and steep, which may present a challenge to the elderly or those with mobility problems. Outside: The back door leads out from the living room to a small, peaceful garden with an area of grass and benches. There is a gravel driveway large enough for two cars. There is a large lockable shed in the garden. If you want to store bikes etc in there, I am happy to arrange for the key to be left for you. We are a strictly dog-free cottage.
    Ambleside is a bustling and lively village where you will find plenty of things to do. Many happy hours can be spent wandering around the town and its interesting shops (with plenty of stops for coffees and cakes!). Ambleside is one of the best places to shop for outdoor gear if you are into fell walking / outdoor activities. In the evenings there are a number of restaurants within walking distance from the cottage if you don't feel like cooking. Pop into one of the many cosy pubs for a drink. The Lake District is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK - there is so much to explore! Turn right out of the cottage door on foot and there are a number of beautiful walks up the hill and onto the local fells, which are suitable for most people and children. Or take a short drive for some more challenging walks in the area - Helvellyn on a clear day offers unparalleled beauty from the top.
  • We’ve just got back from a stay with two toddlers and a baby and the cottage was perfect! The cottage had a baby gate, high chair and travel cot all ready and waiting for us. It’s in a great location so close to walk into Ambleside centre and some fantastic views from the bedrooms on the top floor. Gareth was really responsive to my messages, and check in/out was so simple. The cottage was spotlessly clean and felt so homely and cosy, we’ll definitely be returning here for more Lake District adventures!

  • Excellent accomodation, close to Ambleside centre (the hill to the cottage isn't as big as it looks on Google maps). It had everything we needed despite spending most of our time out walking or hiding in the local pubs from the weather! All in all, would highly recommend if visiting Ambleside or the Lake District in general!

The breakfast was delicious and it was delivered to us hot and at the time requested. Our dog Dennis had a lovely time and made a friend in Elsa :) All in all a fantastic trip and we highly recommend!

    Amy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect romantic getaway with stunning views across the lake, I would without a doubt stay here again!

    Jack2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived to a personal welcome, and were made to feel at home right away. We were treated to a cooked breakfast on both mornings, which was a pleasant surprise! Is spite of the weather, the views of Lake Windermere were amazing from the large windows on the ground floor. The home is gated, with secure gardens for our dog to play. We’re hoping to return in the summer to see the lake in all it’s glory!

    Kyle2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place. I came with very little knowledge of what to expect and I had an amazing time. The host is very friendly, available and helpful. I had no idea where to go walking and the host immediately gave me several recommendations. Artie's Lodge overlooks Lake Windmere with a stunning, undisturbed view. The place inside is kept extremely clean and is full of character and quirks. The lodge is very well furnished. My favourite bits were the massive bed and amazing bathtub! I went with the full English breakfast and certainly wasn't disappointed. The meat was extremely flavourful and those home grown eggs! I came away having really enjoyed my stay and just wished I were staying longer. I would definitely stay here again.

    James2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth was a fantastic host - the lodge is beautiful, the location is perfect, and breakfast was delicious and a much appreciated addition to the stay. Oh, and the view! One of our best AirBnB’s we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many around the world. Thanks very much for a great stay, 100% recommended.

    Josh2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! We had such a wonderful time! Thank you so much for making us feel welcome, we will definitely be back!

    Daniel2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely visit. Beautiful location and close by to bars/restaurants. The out house was bigger than expected and the breakfast was an amazing touch. Wish we stayed longer. Elizabeth was very accommodating and we would love to come back in the summer time and explore even more of Lake Windermere.

    Zoe2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay, great service and amazing views with a cosy window seat. Delicious breakfast. Would go again!

  • Great place to stay to explore the lakes. We found our way on a lovely walk to Bowness on Windermere from here and easily to Ambleside too. Being so close to all the cafes and restaurants in Windermere was great for the evenings too so we could just nip round the corner. The place itself is really cosy and I definitely recommend a stay here.

    Daniel2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Foxgloves was the perfect stay for our weekend away. Super clean and cosy and in a great location and the personal touches made it feel like home.

  • The apartment is beautiful throughout. The location is very central so easy to find restaurants and shops. Communication between the hosts and myself was very quick and they made sure to cover all areas and was always there to help if needed. The little touches they added just made the stay extra special, they had a sweet box for us and my dog even had his own treats. I will be booking with them again when I go back to Windermere.

The kitchen was especially helpful, everything you would need for making simple meals at home including a great selection of spices and some other useful ingredients. We travelled with our 9 month old and it certainly felt baby friendly whilst still being super stylish and comfortable. Projector screen TV was an awesome addition too! Great communication and helpful hosts when needed as well. Would happily return!

    A charming apartment in a traditional Lakeland house. Ideal for walking, cycling, climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking. Wide choice of shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants in nearby Windermere & Bowness. Main tourist attractions within easy reach.
    Willow is a located in tranquil woodland with views towards the mountains and fells. The apartment is part of an extension to Pinethwaite Lodge. The original part of Pinethwaite Lodge dates from the late 19th Century. Willow has a bedroom with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The kitchen, dining and living area are all in one room with sink, electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, dining table and chairs, settee and TV. The bathroom has underfloor electric heating, a shower, toilet and wash hand basin. A cot for a baby can be provided on request but please bring bedding for the cot (my children are in their mid 20s now!) Willow and our grounds are not 'child friendly', however. I do not provide child proof plug socket covers or cupboard locks. In addition there are a number of external hazards including a pond, stream and stone steps close to the apartment. Your child/children will need to be supervised at all times. I charge a one off payment of £5.00 for the use of the cot. I can provide a camp bed which fits in the kitchen/dining/living room area if the sofa is moved! It is a bit of a squeeze! If you wish to use the camp bed as well please bring a sleeping bag. I charge a one off hire fee of £5.00 for the use of the camp bed. There is a small courtyard by the entrance with table and chairs. Bicycles can be stored in an undercover storage area next to Willow in our shed.
    The Lake District is a year round destination and Pinethwaite Lodge is located near Windermere in the heart of the National Park. Outdoor opportunities are endless: walking, cycling climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking - all within easy reach and Windermere Golf Club is just up the lane. The main tourist attractions of the southern Lake District are all on the doorstep – Windermere with cruise boats, Beatrix Potter attractions, a cinema in Bowness – and a little further away are the Aquarium of the Lakes, Car Museum, Sizergh Castle and Brockhole Visitor Centre. Bowness and Windermere are within a couple of miles, with a wide choice of shops, tea rooms, cafes and restaurants and modern and traditional pubs. The popular centre of Windermere is surrounded by very accessible vantage points that give glorious views of the surrounding area and lake. Orrest Head, a 784’ hill north of the town, provides one of the finest panoramas – as does School Knott – immediately behind Pinethwaite. Another easy climb is Biskey Howe, a 300’ hill east of Bowness, which has quaint narrow streets and a 15th century church. Windermere, the lake, has fourteen islands, including privately owned Belle Isle with its 18th century round house. Further afield, the list of stately homes, steam railways, lakes and tarns, homes of authors and poets, and fine eating places, is almost endless, all set in the deep valleys and foothills of the Lakeland fells, where some of Britain’s best scrambling and mountain walking may be found. Even in today’s busy world, it is possible still to leave cars and people behind and find solitude in many parts of the Lake District. In addition, Pinethwaite is a haven for wildlife: foxes, badgers, roe deer, and a wide range of birds, from buzzards, to long-tailed tits, warblers, fly catchers, heron, tawny owls and many more.
  • Cecilia has such a wonderful apartment in a brilliant location, just a 10 minute walk from the centre of windemere. A great base for exploring the lakes and fantastic value. Thanks Cecilia!

    The Den is less than a minute's walk from the shore of beautiful Lake Windermere and is located on a bustling, historic pedestrian street. It is perfectly located to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of the quaint village of Bowness, with the finest eateries and most stylish cocktail bars being right on its doorstep. This well-appointed one bedroom apartment is the perfect place to enjoy all the Lake District has to offer.
    Set in a charming, characterful 400 year old building, and tucked away in a quiet secluded garden, this delightful, spacious one bedroom apartment has a modern, well-equipped kitchen and beautiful living area with large Smart TV and real open fire. A parking permit is provided to allow parking in over 40 car parks in the local area and there is easy access to a great network of public transport. However, many fantastic walks and attractions are within walking distance, making this an ideal base for exploring the area. This charming hideaway is ideal for couples on a romantic break or solo business travellers.
    There are so many lovely places to eat and drink on the doorstep that it is difficult to know where to start! The Villa Positano is an excellent Italian restaurant that is at the bottom of our stairs; at the end of The Ginnel you'll find Bodega Bar which does great tapas and across the street there is the famous Vinegar Jones Fish and Chip Shop. All within a minute's walk! If you are prepared to go for a two minute walk, you'll find the two best cocktail bars for miles around. One at either end of Ash Street. The Country Hut is warm and welcoming and does great cider and rum punch, the Fizzy Tart is glamorous and upmarket. There are tons of places beyond Ash Street and discovering them is a joy in itself, so I won't spoil it for you!
  • Perfect place to stay in the heart of Bowness! This was a cosy spot to retreat to in bad weather and to use as a base when exploring Bowness or venturing further afield to the lakes, towns, fells and mountains. Spotlessly clean on arrival with an easy check in and check out. Would recommend!

    Kal2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

    In light of the Coronavirus, we wanted to reassure our guests that our beautiful country hut is like home from home. It is isolated from anyone else or any other properties, with its own private outdoor space. Your nearest guests are the sheep in the field next door! With 5* reviews, hygiene has always been paramount and we personally clean our hut to the highest standard. We provide hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes and all linen is professional cleaned. With best wishes, Jo and Darren
    Set on a private road, away from the noise, and yet both Windermere and Bowness are only a short 10 minutes walk away.There is a private parking area with plenty of space that is shared with the main house, connected to a small path leading you to the hut. Mountain bikers are welcome to bring and leave bikes in our secure garage.
    The hut is based on a quiet, hidden road, in walking distance to the vibrant Windermere town where there is plenty of places to eat out from Italian cuisine to Thai. One of our favourite places to eat is The Smith a small family run pizza restaurant with a log fire and twinkly fairy lights. If you like your beer and ales the crafty Ba is a friendly place with homely decor and a great ambience, not to mention the most extensive selection of drinks available. We've had many a cheeseboard here! For amazing brunch and breakfast it's a must to visit Homeground coffee and kitchen! And for sunny days I recommend Cafe Italia across the road with outside seating where you can drink cappuccinos and watch the people go by.
  • Wonderful place to stay that we cant recommend enough. Perfectly situated from both Windermere and Bowness by foot (or by other means) if you want somewhere close to the towns yet away from the noise. Stunning views from the hut over rolling hills and off in to the distance which come at great value for money in a very pricey area. Super clean, and really well fitted out the hut was ideal for our needs. Jo was a great host who went to every measure and beyond to make us feel comfortble. Would happily stay again in the future - thanks for having us.

    Oliver2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The five stars option isn’t enough! We have travelled to Windermere/Bowness-on-Windermere many times over the past 13 years, but this stay has absolutely been the most special and memorable stay. Jo and Darren kindly left a lovely bottle of bubbly for our Anniversary 💕. The Hut is just perfect, so beautifully decorated and so cleverly designed. We loved the Stag and Heart details which are so pretty and stylish. The views are spectacular and how lovely to wake up to sheep just outside the window. We were sad to leave today, but we will book to return. Our best Anniversary ever, Suzanne and Paul

    Suzanne2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous and cosy place to stay in the Lakes, only a short walk to Windermere town and Jo and Darren were super friendly and added lovely touches to make us feel welcome! A perfect home for a few days away!

    Vicki2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few days staying in Jo's hut and exploring the Lake District. Although the weather was less than ideal, we still managed to enjoy our time away and we would definitely recommend staying at Oakland Hut due to the great location and brilliant facilities.

    Rebecca2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We booked Jo's place as a birthday gift for my brother and sister in law. They had a lovely time, the hut is very cosy and welcoming and Jo added a very personal touch leaving a birthday cake and card which was much appreciated.

    John2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Just returned back from a short stay in Windermere. This hut is stunning with lovely, thoughtful touches. Although small, it provides a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle of busy life. Location wise it is perfect, you can be in the heart of Windermere within 10 minutes walk where you can find lots of nice cafes/bars/pubs and shops. The hut has everything you need, and I can imagine in summer the outside part of the property is beautiful with the scenery and BBQ! Jo and Darren were amazing from start to finish, communication was fast and check in/out was effortless. They were always on hand if we needed them. Despite the weather we still came away feeling happy, well rested and refreshed. I cannot fault this fab property, will definitely be booking again! Thank you Jo + Darren!

    Amy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A great two nights away in rainy February, the hut was everything we wanted and more! Very private and perfectly situated just a short walk into Windermere where you’ll find lots of great restaurants and bars. The hut was very cosy with underfloor heating, so perfect for a getaway no matter the weather. We’re already looking forward to getting another trip booked in for Summer so we can make use of the lovely outside area. Thank you very much Jo and Darren x

Logs can be bought at a garage 5 mins walk away, if it is closed then the supermarket near the railway station has them and is open to until late. Parking wasn't a problem, we arrived at about 3pm and parked two minutes walk from the flat. Great value for our visit in February, we are thinking of going back next year.

  • Great apartment with everything needed for a stay in Windermere. Loved the log fire. The living room and bedroom were really comfortable, cozy and lovely and warm while outside was grey and drizzly. Fab location too. Great value. I would highly recommend and hope to visit again when I get the chance! Thank you

    ***January to March, Discounts available, please ask.*** It is an easy walk from the train and bus station to our ground floor flat.You will have sole occupancy. It's tucked away in a secluded sunny spot, yet moments away from the vibrant cafe culture that is Windermere. Warm and clean we aim to make you feel welcome.
    In a small purpose built block the flat has been refurbished recently and decorated to a high standard. It has one bedroom, guests have the entire flat for their use. There is a shared lawn area, enclosed by hedge and walls. There is an allocated space in the car-park. In the distance, the Coniston fells are an inspiring view, but its just as convenient to walk from the door. Lots of choices, including the lake shore , Orrest Head view point, much loved by Alfred Wainwright, the beech trees of Sheriffs Wood or the unspoilt School Knott tarn.
    The mainline train station at Kendal town is called Oxenholme, Lake district. From there a local train service runs into Windermere. The popular cafe culture in Windermere contributes to a vibrant village. Booths is our local supermarket where you will find regional products. A Co-Op and Sainsburys are on the main streets. We are proud of the beautiful scenery, and if you don't want to drive, you will find lots of other means to explore. Walks from the door step take you uphill to small tarns, view points or down through woodland, past pretty streams to the lakes shore. Increasing numbers of accessible paths open up access to people of a fitness and abilities "Wild" and lake swimming is increasingly popular, you may even be joined by an otter! There are many historic houses and sites to visit locally reflecting the poets, craftspeople and artists who have lived here. Even if it rains, you will still find lots to do. The local cinema has a Wurlitzer organ and regular recitals. Visiting orchestras host concerts over summer. There are lots of activities throughout the year. We try to keep an up to date guide available. A new and very successful initiative last year was the winter German market. Our Christmas lights are strung between the streets, Father Christmas arrives by train in December, and local groups arrange regular events through the year. Windermere is well served by Churches. There is a Quaker meeting , and farther afield a Buddhist center, at both of which, people of all, or no faith are welcome.
  • Fiona and her husband Dave are the perfect hosts. Dave was waiting for us at the main street during check in. He escorted us to the house and that felt really special. He then showed us around the house and briefed us about how things work. About the apartment, it is very close to the railway station and the city centre. It's spacious and very well thought of. I loved the attention to detail. There is every amenity in the apartment that one can think of. The backyard is also lovely. In a nutshell, this is the best airbnb I've stayed at. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

  • There are a lot of places to stay in Windermere but as I passed each one on my visit I thought to myself "It's not as good as Windermere4!" I stayed here with my 4 month old and it was PERFECT. Very walkable to groceries, food, the water, the boats, the train and buses. The accommodations are also set up very well for a baby. The door to the hallway leading to the bedroom is really great for adding an additional sound barrier during naps and such. Fiona was so sweet with the baby I nearly asked her to babysit. The last day I was there it was beautiful so I walked up Orrest Head and it was gorgeous. I was really glad I didn't miss those views! I'd imagine in the summer this is all quite busy but it was all very quiet in March.

  • Fiona and Dave couldn’t have been better hosts - the property was clean, spacious, in a great location and just brilliant all round. Whether it was walking tips or electric candles in case of the storm, nothing was too much - and Fiona even offered a lift into Ambleside to save us a rainy wait for the bus! We’ll definitely be back again soon!

    Bowness-on-Windermere, England, United Kingdom

    Rowan is a charming, self-contained apartment located in tranquil woodland in a traditional Lakeland house in the Lake District National Park. Ideal for walking, cycling, climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking. Wide choice of shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants in nearby Windermere & Bowness. Main tourist attractions within easy reach. Rowan is good for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers.
    Rowan is located in a tranquil woodland with views towards the mountains and fells. The apartment is part of an extension to Pinethwaite Lodge. The original part of Pinethwaite Lodge dates from the late 19th Century. The accommodation is on the first floor and consists of kitchen. dining and sitting room, double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (bath, wash hand basin and toilet), separate shower room and separate toilet with wash hand basin. A staircase leads to the apartment. There is a small, double bed settee in the sitting room and there is a camp bed in the apartment as well. I can provide bedding for the sofa bed but if you wish to use the camp bed as well please bring a sleeping bag. I charge £5.00 for the hire of the camp bed. A cot for a baby can be provided on request but please bring bedding for the cot (my children are in their mid 20s now!) There is a one-off charge of £5.00 for the hire of the cot. Rowan and our grounds are not 'child friendly', however. The apartment is on the first floor with a set of steep stairs leading to the entrance door and I do not provide child proof plug socket covers or cupboard locks. In addition there are a number of external hazards including a pond, stream and stone steps close to the apartment. Your child/children will need to be supervised at all times. Please note I charge a one off payment of £5.00 for the use of the cot or camp bed.
    The Lake District is a year round destination and Pinethwaite Lodge is located near Windermere in the heart of the National Park. Outdoor opportunities are endless: walking, cycling climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking - all within easy reach and Windermere Golf Club is just up the lane. The main tourist attractions of the southern Lake District are all on the doorstep – Windermere with cruise boats, Beatrix Potter attractions, a cinema in Bowness – and a little further away are the Aquarium of the Lakes, Car Museum, Sizergh Castle and Brockhole Visitor Centre. Bowness and Windermere are within a couple of miles, with a wide choice of shops, tea rooms, cafes and restaurants, and modern and traditional pubs. The popular centre of Windermere is surrounded by very accessible vantage points that give glorious views of the surrounding area and lake. Orrest Head, a 784' hill north of the town, provides one of the finest panoramas – as does School Knott – immediately behind Pinethwaite. Another easy climb is Biskey Howe, a 300' hill east of Bowness, which has quaint narrow streets and a 15th century church. Windermere, the lake, has fourteen islands, including privately owned Belle Isle with its 18th century round house. Further afield, the list of stately homes, steam railways, lakes and tarns, homes of authors and poets, and fine eating places, is almost endless, all set in the deep valleys and foothills of the Lakeland fells, where some of Britain's best scrambling and mountain walking may be found. Even in today's busy world, it is possible still to leave cars and people behind and find solitude in many parts of the Lake District. In addition, Pinethwaite is a haven for wildlife: foxes, badgers, roe deer, and a wide range of birds, from buzzards, to long-tailed tits, warblers, fly catchers, heron, tawny owls and many more.
  • Excellent service and amazing place!

  • Had a great time here - fantastic location with only a short walk to lake Windermere and right in the middle of the town of Windermere. Apartment was a lot bigger than we thought and had everything needed including a back garden with easy access for dog owners. Only problem (if you can call it that) was with it being a ground floor apartment was we could hear occasional banging around from the flat above - this didn't inconvenience us but if the apartment above is also rented out then louder guests may be more disruptive. I wouldn't let this influence anyone's decision however. Will recommend it to anyone who wants a nice break in the lakes!

    Andy2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wow what a little gem. The flat is so cosy with everything you could ask for and more. It is very close to all amenities and a great base for exploring the lakes.

Everything was clean and tidy, and parking was directly outside and off any main traffic areas. With separate sitting and dining areas, the lounge was warm and comfortable with the kitchen/diner open and well stocked with utensils etc. Perfect for a couple as a base for everything the Lakes has to offer.

  • We had an amazing time staying in the hut. There is everything you need, we had such a cosy stay. Even with the wind and rain howling outside, the log burner kept us toasty. The location is excellent for getting around Windermere and the local area. Steve was an excellent host and helped us with anything we needed. We had zero complaints and would definitely stay again! Thanks Steve :)

    Stuart2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning hut with amazing views, super cosy bed and the cutest wood burning stove. Steve was the perfect host and very friendly plus Jo was so helpful with directions and anything we needed to know. A perfect weekend getaway. Thank you

    Hayley2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at the hut! Steve’s hospitality was great, as were his local recommendations on food and drink spots. We would definitely book again when visiting Windermere. Thank you!

    Peter2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed in the hut for the weekend, its beautifully designed and super cosy. Woodstove kept it really warm even though it was storming outside. Steve is a great host as well. Would highly recommend overall.

    Anka2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The hut is in a beautiful location and is furnished to a high standard, the craftsmanship of the hut and outside areas are lovely. Location wise we enjoyed overlooking Windermere and Orrest head viewpoint is a short walk from the hut and definitely worth the walk. Winderemere centre is only a 10-15 minute walk from the hut which is fantastic. We also appreciated seeing Steve's chickens roam around the land and Steve was very friendly and helpful, including recommending places to walk and places to eat at. The only slight down point was the cold toilet run at night/ early hours but I was aware it was a short walk from the hut and this is also the case with camping etc. We would happily stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.

    Michiela2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • From the outset Steve is extremely welcoming and friendly. Communications prior were great. The hut was exactly as described and a wonderful secluded spot for a quiet weekend away, with the town of Windermere an easy short walk. The toilet and shower is 50 yards away, which was absolutely fine for us, however if this isn’t your thing read the description carefully. The bed we found ridiculously comfy and the wood burning stove has no problems keeping you warm; indeed even through storm Ciara we had a window open. If you can strike a match then you can light this fire and all necessary items are provided. It’s small but the handcrafted table, shelves and other items make it extremely homely. The wry close 10-15 minute walk to Orrest Head is beautiful and our 16week old puppy loved his first holiday. As a base camp for a short stay, a detox or for further walking we can’t fault it. Really good. We’ll be back.

    Paul2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • If you enjoy staying away from the hustle & bustle in the beautiful countryside with awesome walks from the door, then Steve’s blacksmiths hut fits the bill. Set uphill from Windermere but only an enjoyable half hour country walk down into the town. Don’t miss out on the short walk up to the Orrest head viewpoint. The 360 degree views of the Lake District are breathtaking! Steve’s hut had everything we needed for a lovely breakaway. It was cosy and warm with a heater & wood burner, all equipped for cooking and a comfortable bed. There’s a little outdoor verandah, seating and garden to sit in and enjoy the peace and quiet too. The bathroom is in the main house so just a short walk away. Thank you Steve and Jo for a great stay.

    Joanne2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing space! The decor, craftmanship and location of this stay were just perfect for us!! We had a great time and such a beautiful experience!! If you need somewhere to stay and unwind then this is it!

    One of two delightful stonebuilt cottages dating from 1880's offering peace and tranquillity in a quiet location equidistant between the pretty villages of Bowness and Windermere with plenty of local walks and restaurants. The cottage has panoramic views over The Langdale Fells which can be enjoyed from the warmth and comfort of the cottage interior or from the beautifully landscaped garden at the front of the cottage. A perfect spot to unwind with a glass of wine and watch the sunset!
    The cottage is designed "upside down" with the bedroom and bathroom downstairs and the open plan living room and kitchen upstairs to make the most of the lovely views. Wastwater Cottage adjoins Elterwater Cottage which also accommodates two people, so why not rent both and share your holiday experience with a couple of friends? Towels and Bed linen are provided.
  • We stayed at Wastwater cottage for our mini moon and had a lovely stay. The location is great as it’s within walkable distance to both Bowness and Windermere. There are plenty of nearby walks and we were spoilt for choice for places to eat. The cottage itself had everything we needed for our stay and was spotlessly clean. We would highly recommend.

  • Wastwater Cottage was a great spot for our long weekend in the Lakes! Not far from Windermere station, we could get around quite easily by foot and bus. And the cottage itself was perfect!

  • The Barn Loft’s location is fantastic, easy to get to from the train station and a minute away from a Coop and restaurants. It was spotless and a nice open space. It was a bit cold at times, but the electric fire and blanket meant we were fine. I would definitely recommend staying here. The highlights for me were the exposed beams, round the corner sofa and extremely comfy bed.

    Jack2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely open plan studio on the top floor of a barn conversion, very central and <5 min to the station. Clean, comfy and a good price for the area. Check in was very simple and the host was available by text anytime.

  • Absolutely fantastic place with a really quirky but homely decor, I would recommend this place to any couple. It’s warm, cosy and has lots of cool modern features that make it nicely lit and gives it a real log cabin feel. The location of the cabin is great as in its in the heart of Windermere and about a 10 minute walk from Bowness

    Kieran2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Recently stayed in the ‘Scandi Hut’ for three nights with my partner and all I can say is this little gem was PERFECT! The whole process from booking to us checking out was faultless and Ally couldn’t do enough for us (lots of lovely restaurants, bars, walks etc suggested for us). The space itself is what we could only describe as fairytale like! The decor in the Scandi Hut is so thoughtfully done with lots or lovely homely touches. The bed is UNBELIEVABLY comfortable, we struggled to find motivation to leave it knowing it was cold and raining outside and we had access to Netflix and the lovely fire at the end of the bed!😊 The shower was also a great benefit as it is super powerful! The Hut was spotlessly clean and we cannot fault it. Will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to the Lakes. Thanks Ally!! Xx

    Emily2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay, perfect location and a straight run down to the lake. Would definitely return

    Ryan2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • The ScandiHut is truly a magical place to spend a couple of days in Windermere. The design is amazing and the décor is just so beautiful, but most importantly this tiny place is extremely comfortable. You have everything you need to relax: a comfy bed you won’t want to leave, Netflix, an electric fireplace that changes colours ,the smell of wood that surrounds you, hot tea and dreamy fairy lights that help you disconnect from the outside world. Truly unforgettable memories! This immersive hideaway is perfectly located as well. The city centre is close and there are so many places that have amazing food but if you want to be in the nature, you don’t need to go far and the surrounding sceneries are breath-taking. Last, but not least, our host Ally was attentive, friendly and she gave us such good recommendations. The ScandiHut was an unique experience and we wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone planning a trip in this area.

    Trandafir2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy and comfortable skandi hut with everything you need, in a good location. Really enjoyed our stay here.

    Reinaldo2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at the Scandi Hut, it’s perfect for a short getaway with a really unique and cozy feel too it. Everything is on your doorstep in terms of places to eat, coffee shops and bars and it’s a perfect base if your looking to go out and explore the lakes. Ally is a fantastic host with great recommendations for different walks and great tips of where to eat in the evening. We both loved it and can’t wait to return!

    Georgie2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazingly prepared and best value for money. Right at the town centre where you can find the delicacies of Windermere readily. Staying at Dot's place was an amazing experience. She is a great host and very friendly. Her tips for exploring Windermere as well as lake cruises were really helpful. The range of broucher of various attaractions, readily available were a great thing. I picked up the broucher and subsequently planned my cruise of the lake. I would definitely love to stay at this place again. Cheers For. You are a super host.

It is most conveniently positioned, being literally 2 minutes from the shops, cafes and bars of Windermere village, yet quiet at night. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

    Lynda2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect location to acess both the walking and also the local amenities. The cottage has two very spacious double rooms, each with their own bathroom which was really convinient as we stayed as two couples. The kitchen is very well stocked and allowed us the opportunity to cook meals and enjoy them together at the dining room table. However there were also a wide range of places to eat less than five minutes walk away. Exceptionally clean. We would definitely stay again.

    Anneka2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Watch a rich variety of avian visitors enjoy the bird house and feeder made locally from china tea-sets. This award-winning Victorian slate cottage has plenty for human guests as well, such as a real flame fire, oak floors, and private patio with spot lighting. This well-equipped and spacious period property is located centrally in the village with shops, bars, restaurants, train bus and taxi facilities all close to hand. Enjoy spectacular panoramic views over the lake within a 20-minute walk of the summit from the front door of cottage or walk down to the lake in less than 20 minutes.
    Windermere’s famous Puddleduck cottage is a very warm, cosy but also spacious Victorian era slate cottage recently refurbished in a relatively contemporary style, but remaining sympathetic to the era of its creation. Queen Victoria herself dropped by in 1887 during her golden jubilee celebrations and the street was named after her. A long hallway leads to a spacious and very comfortable lounge equipped with HDTV with many freeview and pay per view channels, bluetooth speaker, wifi, DVD, luxurious deep seated leather furniture, solid oak flooring and coffee table, lamps and an exposed slate chimney breast. Local art adorns the walls. A spacious well equipped kitchen/ diner is finished to a high standard with solid oak units. A separate utility room to the rear of the cottage houses a washing machine, tumble dryer and large fridge freezer as well as a Worcester Bosch central heating boiler. You will find a very handy downstairs toilet and wash basin as well as a clothes drying area, coat and shoe storage providing plenty of storage for backpacks and walking gear. 2 good sized bedrooms with King sized beds and top quality mattresses, linen and sumptuous pillows are designed to ensure you have the best sleep possible during your stay at Puddleduck. The main bathroom upstairs is well equipped and maybe you will want to add some drops of your favourite essential/ bath oil and relax in the solid steel bath after a day’s activities and use the electronic candles to create a relaxing ambience or take a shower if you prefer? A private walled patio / garden area with cafe style table and chairs, planted window boxes and beautiful subtle led lighting automatically programmed to provide evening illumination within the natural slate patio slabs to the front of the cottage is just perfect for unwinding with a drink or two whilst watching village life pass by. Booths supermarket 150 yards away, offers the finest range of groceries, deli counter, fresh bakery as well as wines and craft beers you are likely to find anywhere. The wall mounted bird feeders and birdhouses on the patio are made locally from china tea pots and tea cups and saucers. Families of sparrows, robins and other birds are regular visitors to Puddleduck. Be sure to let us know what you see.
    This stunning slate cottage, named after the famous Beatrix Potter character, benefits from a stunning central location in the beautiful Victorian village of Windermere in the English Lake District. Numerous interesting boutiques, cafes, and restaurants are only a couple of minutes away, ideal for lovers of quality food, craft ales, wines, beers and spirits. Take a longer walk to Bowness-on-Windermere, and to Orrest Head for panoramic lake views or check out the many outdoor pursuits nearby.

    Kirsty2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This charming cottage right in the centre of Windermere is an ideal place to base yourself for a few nights in the Lake District. My partner and I like to be able to cook together when we are away so we really appreciate an Airbnb with a decent kitchen and this had all the pots/utensils etc that we needed. We loved curling up with a glass of wine in front of the gas stove in the evenings after a long day of walking and the bed was extremely comfortable. We would definitely stay again.

  • Zoe's place is a very cosy flat that is in the ideal location in Windermere, with a shortcut onto the main street which proved handy with difficult weather! She has left clear information on tips about the surrounding areas of Bowness, Ambleside and Windermere itself which proved quite handy! The place itself was very clean and had ample amenities if you wish to stay in and cook your own food. We will definitely be staying here again if we ever head to the lakes sometime soon!

The Windermere area You'll discover fine varied walking country around Lake Windermere, at the heart of the Lake District. Hire a boat and take to the lake itself, or use the network of footpaths to reach the best high-level views. There are lots of options for places to visit, including Ambleside Roman Fort and Troutbeck Park, which was once owned by Beatrix Potter. Enjoy this beautiful region and unwind amidst breathtaking scenery at any time of the year. Ramble through some of the best walking country in Britain; get out your mountain bike and go off road or simply enjoy the pleasures of the delightful towns and villages dotted throughout the lakes and Cumbria. The railway arrived in 1857, making the area much more accessible to visitors and with this demand grew a wealth of Lake District Hotels and a multitude of natural and 'built' attractions. The railway still exists today and brings people from all over the world to this special area of the Lake District National Park. As well as being a sustainable way to travel, most of the Windermere hotels are only a short walk from the station, or at worst a five minute taxi ride. In terms of attractions, Lake Windermere is well known as England's largest Lake at over 10 miles long and is also the deepest at 65 metres. There are numerous outstanding viewing points within easy reach either by car, or by short walk. Gummer's Howe is probably the most famous being situated at the south end of Lake Windermere. You can drive most of the way, leaving only a 30 minute walk to marvel at the panoramic views over Lake Windermere and across to Morecambe Bay. To see the Lakes from a different perspective, Arnside Knott rewards those who take this gentle climb with stunning views of the Kent Estuary and Morecambe Bay; simply head for the viewpoint. For a more challenging, but still enjoyable walk for most, take the 2 hour round trip to Brantfell and Post Knott. Take the camera, as there are wonderful views of Windermere, the stunning Langdales and maybe even the Lake District Hotel you've chosen. Hope for a clear day and always check the weather forecasts before heading out. Suitable footwear is always important, even on these more leisurely walks. Around Lake Windermere you'll find an array of villages and hamlets to enjoy. While the drive will be slow around the twisting back roads, you'll discover: + Fell Foot Park [National Trust] where you can enjoy an ice cream and hire a boat; + Aquarium of the Lakes and the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway at Lakeside, both being attractions you can enjoy on a sunny or rainy day; + At Graythwaite you can enjoy Graythwaite Hall Gardens, which are particularly impressive in the Spring; + Head up towards Sawrey and visit ‘Hill Top', a 17th century farmhouse where Beatrix Potter weaved her lyrical magic. + At the north end of Lake Windermere, Ambleside is a Mecca for walking enthusiasts and you can take a lake cruise back to your hotel in Bowness-on-Windermere; + Visit the Beatrix Potter Attraction in Bowness-on-Windermere £250–£350/ week 2 nights minimum stay Nearest Travel Links Airport: Manchester Railway & Bus: Windermere 1/4 mile from accommodation Ferry: Birkenhead Activities near Windermere Sports: Tennis Watersports Horse Riding Golf within 30 mins drive Fishing Walking holidays Rural / countryside retreats Beach or lakeside relaxation Cycling holidays Motorcycling holidays Romantic break
    A Victorian town almost as it was when first developed. Beautiful buildings and dedicated to the tourist industry. Fantastic breathtaking scenery. A busy place even in the heart of winter. Probably my favourite time of the year with its fresh crisp air. Autumnal colours are a sight to behold. Spring with its rebirth reminds me if the warmer days ahead where as a child I came on holidays to spend hours dipping my feet in streams and lakes. A place you will want to return to for sure.
  • Great location,clean compact,all you need for a few days in the lakes

  • Ideal accommodation for a short stay in the lakes. It has everything you need.

    Eddie2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Mysty is cute and compact and has everything you might need. The bed is comfy and it is well heated. The location is absolutely perfect, crawling distance from the Crafty Baa and a great base for adventures. Sharon was super quick to respond to my messages as well. Thanks so much Sharon we had a great few days in The Lakes!

    Heather2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for buses, train, supermarkets, restaurants and bars in central Windermere, with very clear directions and easy self check in. Cute and cosy and everything to hand that you need for your stay. Very clean and comfortable. Will be returning for sure!

    Natasha2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • At first, I felt that the space was small, but the landlord Sharon's ingenuity made the house use more than expected. Be careful not to be hit by the bed frame and it will be fine.

    秀聰2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location just off High Street - we used it as a base to explore to area, it is a really well designed studio, and it had everything we needed for a perfect break. Recommended !

    Small but perfectly formed en suite double room in a Lakeland Victorian townhouse. The house is on a quiet street in the heart of Windermere, just 2 minutes walk from the many bars, cafés, restaurants and shops, and just 15 minutes walk from the shores of lake Windermere. The train station is a 10 minute walk away.
    A light, sunny room (when the sun is shining :)) at the back of the house with views of the Lake District mountain tops. The space is small but not pokey. It's been beautifully renovated with a brand new en-suite bathroom, a very comfortable bed and a selection of fair-trade teas and fresh coffee for you in the room.
  • Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. Lovely room, thoughtful & caring host. Location is ideal. John went out his way to make us Vegan brownies on leaving. Wonderful touch to a wonderful host. Thank you

    Kyle2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • John is one of the nicest people I have met. He treated me like a personal guest in his own home. The room is sparkling clean and the amenities are great. John rustled up a hearty breakfast and had excellent advice about local trips. Highly recommend. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

    Jagan2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • John is a really friendly and helpful host with a beautiful home. We had a great time staying here, and would definitely come again.

    Tonia2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone! Lovely host, beautiful room, perfect location and tasty breakfast! Thanks John! Hope to go back soon.

    Amber2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • John was amazing! A lovely host, very good tips for the area and made us feel most welcome. The room was great as well. Very clean and a super comfortable mattress. We were sad to leave after just one night and will be back when we’re in the area again. You’re missing out if you don’t stay here!

    Annkathrin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my husband can highly recommend John's place. John is an exceptional host. The communication was super. He was very quick to respond with any questions. He is easy to talk to, friendly and accomodating. John let us drop bags off early and park car. He offered us a guest pass for the car and we were able to park right outside the house. It's location could not be better to explore Windermere with its beautiful shops, cafe bars, restaurants and so much more. It is in a very peaceful and quiet area of Windermere. A 5 minute stroll into the heart of the town and 20 minutes to Bowness. It really is such a magical area and John's place is perfect to use as a base to explore. The photo doesn't do this place justice. It's a beautiful Victorian house. Full of charm. Its absolutely spotless. Immaculate. The bed was super comfortable and the bedding luxurious. A nice hospitality tray. Stylish en suite bathroom with a great power shower. Breakfast was offered. We love omelettes and this was not a problem. Served downstairs in the bright and airy basement in a beautiful kitchen with lovely coffee. A great start to the day. Our stay could not have been any better. We would highly recommend this wonderful Airbnb. It's a very good price too. Always a bonus.

    Debra2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very good place and John is a nice host. John is very kind and skilled in art and music. He was very kind, listening patiently to my fluent English and paraphrasing words I didn't understand. My time talking with John is still an important memory for me! Surrounded by John's house and the nature of windermere, we had a very nice time! The room was very cute and renovated by hand and looked like a hotel. There is also a brand new private bathroom with a nice British antique handle. The bed is large enough to sleep with two people. In the evening, I cooked freely in the kitchen with open kitchen. Because John cooks everyday, he has a lot of spices and Japanese knives. I was able to relax and relax as if I were living abroad. The house is a quiet place because it is just one from the main street. Supermarkets and main streets are just around the corner, and within 5-10 minutes walk from windermere station. I want to go to England again to stay here! Thanks for John's hospitality!

    Our luxury Lake District Cottages lie in the beautiful Stock Valley. They are reached by a private drive from Ambleside which runs past Stockghyll Falls, climbing to 700 feet and offering some of the finest panoramic views in the Lake District. Guests are invited to relax in the gardens, or freely explore the farm. Every photo you see here was taken on the farm so you know exactly what to expect during your stay! Grove Farm is the setting for your own tranquil retreat, yet with Ambleside just over a mile away there is an excellent choice of shops, bars and restaurants close by, with easy access to all the magnificent scenery and exciting pursuits that the Lake District has to offer
    The Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland, is a mountainous region in North West England. A popular holiday destination, it is famous for its lakes, forests and mountains (or fells), and its associations with William Wordsworth and the other Lake Poets and with Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin. A National Park established in 1951 covers an area of 2,362 square kilometres. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017. The Lake District is located entirely within the county of Cumbria. All the land in England higher than 3,000 feet (914 m) above sea level lies within the National Park, including Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. It also contains the deepest and longest bodies of water in England, Wast Water and Windermere.
  • Great location and great host. Everything we needed for a stay in the Lake District - thank you

    Trelawney2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • You must stop here, everything about the place is perfect. There are so many thoughtful little touches that elevate staying here above other places, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. The advice I would give to anybody staying here is to take a walk down the road you drive up to arrive, then hang a left at the end up a public footpath and climb directly up the peak in front of you, the views on the way up and indeed at the top are some of the best in the country.

    Christian2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous base to explore the lake district from

    Mark2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • A very quaint place, which is an ideal base for the local area. Highly recommended, everything you could possible need in one space. Looking forward to a return trip.

    Wayne2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Little Grove for 4 days and it was a lovely experience. It's a cosy space that has everything you would need. The views are stunning and the sheep and chickens out the back were very friendly! Lovely little touches made the stay even nicer, fresh cake and eggs from the farm were delicious. Close enough to Ambleside to feel part of the town but still feels like you are out in the fells. We hope to be back again! Thanks Sarah

    Julie2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic cosy cottage in an idyllic location. Perfect for a holiday in the Lake District, whatever the weather!

    Lihan2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah was a fantastic host, the house is very comfortable and cosy. Ambleside is a short walk, around 20 mins with good taxi services. Location is quiet and peaceful. Would definitely stay again

    Josh2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
