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

    The Lake District is a World Heritage Site, and High Park is located in the most beautiful part of the area. This former farmhouse, once owned by Beatrix Potter, is situated on the Cumbria Way. The views are fantastic and at night, the silence is total. Although your bedroom is quite small, we do offer a King size double bed with a TV and a small fridge. You have your own private bathroom with great water pressure and piping hot water. We cook your breakfast how you like it - just ask!
    We only let one room - with its own bathroom - so you will be our only guests. Your room has a king size bed, a HD TV, a small fridge and free WiFi. Your bathroom has both a bath and shower. A downstairs room is available, both for breakfast and for you to relax in at any time. We work very hard to keep our house squeaky clean too! Extraordinary silence at night, coupled with a true dark sky, make staying at High Park a unique experience.
    We are in a secluded valley, but right in the middle of the Lake District. We offer peace and tranquility - and as one of our friends said recently, 'Probably the best view from a garden to be found in England'. The down side of this is that if you are looking for excitement and things to do in the evening, High Park might not be a good choice for you. There are two pubs within reasonable walking distance (20 - 30 minutes) and they serve evening meals and bar snacks. Because there is no street lighting, we are happy to provide you with a flashlight! Both Ambleside and Coniston (approx 5 miles away) offer a wide variety of pubs, cafes and restaurants.
  • Couldn’t fault!! Tony & Wendy were lovely hosts with great knowledge of the area. We followed all of their advice and it didn’t disappoint! They have a beautiful home in a picturesque spot - so peaceful I had the best nights sleep in months. But even without all of that, just Wendy’s breakfasts would have been worth the visit! I would thoroughly recommend!!

    Holly2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had such a pleasant and rewarding first visit to the Lake District, thanks to Wendy and Tony for giving me a comfortable, welcoming, and safe place to start and end my day. Wendy’s breakfast was bountiful and delicious and Tony had great tips for both walking and driving routes. The house itself is so cute and clean. My favorite walk started right there. Will most definitely return!

    Rayer2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Tony and Wendy were excellent hosts. My brother and I loved the generous hospitality and how helpful the hosts were with hiking recommendations. The breakfast was delicious and the overall experience was comfortable, unique and delightful. Thank you so much.

    Jennie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location with beautiful views. Wendy and Tony really make you feel welcome and will go above and beyond to ensure your stay is a pleasant one. Their knowledge of the lakes as well as their lovely warm and comfortable cottage really does make your stay at the lakes a relaxing and pleasant one.

    Ryan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy and tony have a great welcome to their special home. The setting is perfect for access to the mountains and a warm and cosy room to come back to at the end of the day. The breakfast was sensational and set me up perfectly for a day on the fells. I would heartily recommend this stay.

    claire2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • My stay could not have been better. The English breakfast was delicious, it was lovely to be welcomed by some tea and cake after each walk, Wendy and Tony were very welcoming and gave great information to have some amazing walks. I highly recommend staying here!

    Thomas2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The bed is amazing, the shower was brilliant, and the walks around the area are absolutely breathtaking (rain or shine, I walked in both!).

    Stacey2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for Wendy’s and Tony’s hospitality! They are so kind and friendly, providing insightful instruction of the itinerary and the best British breakfast!

    Little Langdale, 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!

    Sophia2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • A fabulous cosy home in the centre of Ambleside. We will definitely be back x

    Michele2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Ben2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

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.

    Catherine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location and super clean. Very cosy place to stay for a few days. We walked down to the lake which is only a 30 minute stroll. Great location for all the local bars and Sainsbury’s is down the road if you need anything. Would definitely stay here again!

    Jamie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A cosy bolt hole situated right in the centre of Windermere. Being set back from the road it was very peaceful. Lovely and clean, with good communication from Wayne.

    Linda2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay here for one night. Great central location. Comfy and cosy. Would recommend.

    Lynne2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Make the most of your stay in this wonderful 1 bed cozy abode...Light the log fire, pour yourself a glass of wine and relax. This place is perfect for local restaurants and bars and a 45 min walk to the lake....Wayne is a great host and his place is clean, tidy and warm...

  • Superb location, nice and quiet and easy to find for newcomers to Windermere. Easy check-in and a wonderful wood burner in the living room to cosy up with! Nice walking distance to Lake Windermere and close to the station and The Smith (great pizza!)

    Becky2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful space in a fantastic location, with pubs, shops, cafes and restaurants to hand. 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!

    Chloe2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

  • Cosy cottage and great location. Stayed with two friends and it was perfect for a short weekend getaway.

    Neslisah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cottage in an excellent location to go exploring the incredible Lake District. We stayed here for two nights as a base to go and explore. We didn’t know what to expect but we were so happy with not only the property but the proximity to the village which has a number of pubs to choose from as well as a shop, cafes and a big outdoor store. Karen was a great host who always checked in before, during and after a stay. We hope to return soon

    Max2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely property within walking distance of Hawkshead and all it’s amenities. Karen offers a stress free check in procedure, and is an attentive host. Her property supplies all you will require for a self catering break. The bedrooms are clean and comfy, the shower is excellent and the kitchen meets all requirements.

    Vicky2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Lavender Cottage in November to celebrate my dad's birthday - there were four of us and we booked the cottage for 5 so we could each have our own room. From the get go Karen was very speedy at answering our questions very speedily and clearly, including the location and was happy to amend our booking later to include a dog. We found the cottage cosy, comfortable and clean. It was a perfect home from home to explore the surrounding area. Karen was great at providing recommendations - we mixed up cooking in and eating out. The area is lovely - there's walks, lakes and interesting independent shops and fantastic pubs, etc. We found everyone really friendly and of course you're not too far from everything The Lakes has to offer. All in all, a great stay, and we hope we can start again in the future to get in some more walks!

    Michaela2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay at the cottage . It was a booking for 5 so we had the whole cottage. Karen was very helpful and on hand if we needed anything. The cottage was clean and excellent location . Ideal for a group. Thank you Karen, we will definitely be back

    Tracey2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • We are extremely pleased with our stay at Lavender Cottage.When we arrived, Karen was not there but everything was there to greet us, the beds were made and a welcome guide was in the kitchen. The cottage is very comfortable, quiet and functional. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could have need. Hawkshead is very located to explore the south of the Lake District, near Ambleside, Coniston and Grizedale. The only negative points of our stay were that Karen shortened our booking a few days before the start and that the parking space was occupied by an unknown neighbour.

    Ella2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Karen was lovely from us arriving at her cottage and even took the time to show us around the village and suggestions on where to eat and the things to do and see with the children. the cottage was lovely and cosy and had everything we needed. Karen even added a lovely touch as it was our anniversary and bought us a bottle of bubbly. the village is a lovely little place and would look at going back :)

    Danny2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this for my parents in law as a mini moon. They messaged as soon as they got there and said it was amazing, then again early evening to say they what an amazing time they were having. I asked my mother in law what she liked most and she said EVERYTHING! The bath, breakfast delivery in the morning, how clean it was, the village. They are going to book it again for next year they loved it that much. I feel a bit jealous I didn't book it for myself. 😔😂 So overall from feedback from the mother in law. Amazing place, great views, hospitality. 5* place.

    Michael2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Could not fault it and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect; quiet, with amenities a short walk away and plenty of things to see and do walking or driving. The suite was very modern and spotlessly clean. The complimentary treats and morning breakfast hamper made all the difference. Although we arrived unintentionally late our hosts were very accommodating and it was not a problem. They kept in touch and were very helpful. 5* from us!

  • A beautiful cosy, warm cottage with amazing views of the surrounding countryside/fells. Sheila was a great host checked on us upon our arrival and left us some of her scrummy lemon drizzle cake. The cottage was immaculately clean and has a great lay out suitable for someone with limited mobility. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. Thank you Sheila.

    Wendy2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is by far the best place I have ever stayed in. Not only is it beautifully layed out and furnished, it is an incredibly "sociable layout". I was looking for a place that had easy access for my mom as she has bad arthritis in her knees and this single level barn conversion was absolutely fantastic. Everything you could ever ask for. I am sure the doors where slightly wider than normal but cant say for sure. The main bedrooms ensuite bathroom/ wetroom had loads of thoughtful and functional features to make life way easier for anyone that usually struggles with standard bathroom layouts. The Kitchen was also thoughtfully considered with an undercounter fridge, Medium level height oven lowered height cooking hob and low level cutlery draw. Although we didn't specifically need these features, I can see it would certainly make it easier for someone bound to a chair to prepare a meal. The most incredible aspect however are the views.... absolutely stunning! Such a warm and friendly welcome. Located out of the way but within a 15 to 20 min drive into town. There is also a fantastic service provides with milk delivered daily and with options to buy a load more groceries and basic essentials ( pretty extensive list of things) delivered to your door..... So if you can't make it to the shops easily... you still covered. Both my Parents and I highly recommend staying here. It is so so so so so nice!

  • Fabulous cottage. Beautifully warm and cosy in the winter months. Lovely, light, airy lay out and the views of the hills from the windows are spectacular - it was better than television watching the weather and cloud formations change throughout the day. Beds are really comfortable and bathrooms well equipped and very clean. The whole place is well set out for a person of limited mobility, which we really appreciated. Sheila and Chris are incredibly welcoming and friendly and Sheila's lemon drizzle cake was delicious. We absolutely loved our stay and will certainly be back.

    Alison2019-11-15T00:00:00Z

Set in 3 acres of a beautiful Lakeland garden views across the Fells and superb walking direct from the property. Hawkshead, Ambleside & Coniston are all within a 10 minute drive, making this the ideal base for exploring the Lake District or simply relaxing and enjoying the lovely setting.
    The accommodation comprises an open plan kitchen and living room with three piece suite, dining table and chairs, with FreeSat digital television/radio and dvd player and a well equipped kitchen area with electric cooker, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Please note there are no laundry facilities. The double bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath & shower over. There is a small twin bedded room which has its own bathroom with bath & shower over & dressing area. Whilst the apartment will sleep 4 adults we believe it is more spacious for 2 or 3 adults or 2 adults & 2 children. There is a selection of Music CD'S & DVD Movies as well as some board games. We have plenty of guide books, maps and information to help you plan your days. There is private car parking for up to 2 vehicles on the driveway. Well behaved pets may be accepted, please let us know when booking Visitors to the apartment may be able to view a variety of wildlife in the garden, Badgers, deer, owls & bats are frequent visitors at dusk both in the garden and the adjacent field and there is an abundance of bird life. A review from January 2020 from Mr Buckle “We would highly recommend The Apartment, Betty Fold. The apartment itself is just lovely, the facilities were great and the owners were friendly, welcoming, accommodating and helpful. The Apartment is located in beautiful grounds with fabulous views of the Lakes countryside, and the location was perfect for stunning walks around the Tarn Hows area. The village of Hawkshead itself is down the hill, a nice walk, especially if you take the path along the river, or a 2 minute drive. We had a lovely few days in January and will definitely be going again." In April 2019 Mr York wrote “This was a fantastic 7 days stay. Hawkshead is only 1.5 miles away, with plenty of places to eat. Central to all the usual Lake District attractions. The apartment had all we would want. Bedding, towels, dishes and kitchen utensils. Idyllic setting with NO car noise. Just birds singing, a Woodpecker, a small deer, pheasants and an occasional badger. Completely peaceful"
    Betty Fold Apartment is in the tiny hamlet of Hawkshead Hill close to the picturesque Tarn Hows and the honey pot village of Hawkshead with it's connections to William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. There are many and varied pubs, cafes and restaurants within a shorts drive from from Betty Fold and the owners will be pleased to advise.
  • We stayed here for my husbands 50th. It was perfect for us and our dog with wet and muddy kit. We did some lovely walks locally and a bit further a field. Claire and her husband were very helpful. Shame there isn’t a large supermarket close by, I would advise people wanting to eat in to do a big shop on route as it’s expensive shopping in Hawkshead or Ambleside as they only have express shops and hike the prices in them. Hope to rerun in warmer weather.

    Elizabeth2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic apartment. Great views, very cosy and comfortable, well equipped and very relaxing atmosphere.

  • We had a fabulous stay at Betty Fold. Everything was as described - the appartment was very comfortable, clean, and well equipt. The hosts were very friendly and approachable. The location was perfect - stunnig views. A 20 minute stroll to Tarn Haws, 40 minute stroll to Hawkshead and 10 minute drive to Coniston and Ambleside. We loved it and would go again.

    The Conga is a cosy, quirky cottage, part of a small row of houses built in the 1840s. It has a south facing aspect and lovely views. Situated in a very quiet part of Ambleside, it is only a short 10 minute walk down in to the village and there are many scenic walks right from the door. Parking available.
  • A very charming place to stay in a great location. Well placed for a lovely walk to the high Sweden bridge and a short, though steep (if needed to be considered), walk into town. The bed is so comfy and overlooks a great view.

    Jodie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at The Conga. It was very cosy and it had lovely views. It is in a great location, just a short walk into Ambleside. We would definitely stay at The Conga again!

    Heather2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little place, very cosy and felt really tranquil. All of the walks we did were a walk away from the house, it was nice to leave the car at the AirBnB! We will definitely be returning if and when we come back to the Lake District again. Thanks Jem!

    Jessica2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

We enjoyed cooking several meals in the well-appointed kitchen and appreciated that the hosts compost. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others.

    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!

    Unique double room with its own private entrance in the heart of the Lake District.
    A private double room with a king sized bed and private bathroom, the Suite has it's own private entrance.
    The bungalow is just s few minutes from the village centre. There are plenty of eating places such as pubs and cafes along with a co op, bakers and butcher shop. There are also many opportunities for walking and cycling in the area.
  • The room is private and had everything we need to rest after exploring this area of the Lake District. The location is great: there are a few places to eat (short walk distance) nearby and a short drive from beautiful places (like the Grizedale forest). Rachel and Ian were great hosts and very helpful getting us familiar with the area and the best places to go.

    Marisol2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We have just enjoyed a wonderful two night stay in Rachel's lovely accommodation. It is well situated, just a two minute stroll from the centre of Coniston and is ideal for exploring the area. The room is very clean, warm and beautifully presented. We wouldn't hesitate in booking again! As a side note, we would recommend the Yewdale Inn for food (fabulous pizzas!)

    Stephen2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely stay at Rachel’s place. The private space was beautiful set up for anything you could possibly want/need. Rachel was considerate and thoughtful with some of the warmest hospitality we’ve had. The location is perfect for any Lake District adventure as well as cosy nights in the local. No negatives to this experience.

    Simone2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality in a beautiful place

    Mark2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious room with nice area for relaxing rather than having to sit on the bed. Good area between room and bathroom for coats, bags etc . thoughtful touches for example, tray for muddy boots to dry. Nicely decorated and very clean. Just a great place. Very central to walk into coniston but also quiet

    Lindsey2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel was lovely and the room was great. It was really cosy and the location was great for us - really easy access to the lakeside and the trails around Coniston. Coniston had plenty of choice for food and it all looked pretty good. We ended up eating at the Bluebird cafe on the lakeside. We didn't have time to visit the museums and things in the village, but there was a lot more than we expected to keep us busy. The room itself was spacious and Rachel left a kettle, tea and coffee. The shower was lovely after a cold day out. We were there to be outdoors, but if you need it then the wifi connection was excellent and the tv was good to collapse in front of at the end of the day. There's a good size room between the bedroom and bathroom that made an excellent 'dressing' room. Parking on the drive was easy, the views right out of the window were lovely, the area was very quiet, arriving and checking out were super straightforward and Rachel let us know she was there if needed. The stay was perfect.

    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!

    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!

    Isabella2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jo's place is amazing. Fantastic location with stunning views. Jo has made a small space into a haven with everything you could need and more for a break 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

  • Wonderfully clean, warm and welcoming space! Parking available directly outside, and we didn't use the car at all over our long weekend stay, as walks with our dog took us out and about to Ambleside and Windermere. Loved the new shower room, ample hot water, lovely kitchen space for cooking after long days of gorgeous walks, and close to two fab pubs, The Black Bull and The Ship. The bed is huge and comfy! Stuart and Sandy made us and Cera so welcome. We arrived in the dark, after a long drive, but no problem. Thank you, we feel so rested.

    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!
  • Super flat in the heart of Bowness, Peter was very helpful and communication was fab, the Den is quaint, with everything you need for a wonderful stay, highly recommend a stay here

  • Bigger than we expected. Very little noise from the road outside. During the storms of Feb 2020 we were comfortably warm; there is a small fan heater which can be deployed until the convectors and/or log burner have heated up. 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.

  • Megan's place was amazing. We were only there for a couple of nights but could quite easily have stayed longer and we plan to return. The location is great which is why we chose it however the accommodation itself was much better than we had anticipated. Clean, homely, and with a great guidebook on things to do from a locals point of view, we would recommend to people visiting the area for the first time, or seasoned tourists!

    Tim2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location. Megan and Dan were more than accommodating and at the end of the phone of we had a question. We didn’t need to contact them due to any issues, just for some questions on the area. The air b n b was cosy and in prime location. We’ll definitely stay again when we cost again. X

    Lauren2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Victory Cottage is a perfect example of a Lakeland Cottage with a cosy log burner, slate flag floors and a secret enclosed garden you can enjoy. Perfectly placed centrally with the benefit of two parking spaces there really is no need to drive anywhere. Sleeps 5 Hawkshead is a beautiful tiny village full of cobblestones, archways and squares that were a favourite of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. There are many tea rooms and public houses nearby
  • A fantastic location while being quite private and secluded.... not sure how that works, but it does. Our yellow Labrador appreciated the easy access to fields for a run. A couple of minutes walk to a well stocked co-op and several pubs, with the Queens Head offering really high class food. A really cosy cottage which we would definitely book again.

    David2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Victory Cottage managed to be wonderfully located right in the heart of a Hawkshead and very quiet. It was great to be a few yards from shops and pubs. All the arrangements via Lakeland Retreats were clear. Accommodation is cosy and straightforward. A well appointed Lakeland retreat thoughtfully managed

    Andy2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, very clean and cosy in a fab location in Hawkshead. Easy to collect keys in Ambleside, great photo directions from Lakeland Retreats. Easy parking right outside. Lovely welcome basket on arrival. Local dairy deliver milk and other goodies on request (price list in the house). Unfortunately we don't use cow's milk so we had to pay for one bottle that was left on the first morning which we never used, but a quick phone call and they knew not to leave any more. Great for folk who are not dairy free, and they did have dairy free alternatives on their list. All in all a fab holiday and a great cottage. Would definitely book again!

    Elisa2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place right in the middle of beautiful Hawkshead, couldn’t have wished for a better week.

    Tim2019-08-20T00:00:00Z

It’s comfortable and well equipped for two. The dishwasher was welcome. Note there’s no washing machine but that was not a problem for us. Loads of walks from the door and local pubs nearby. A beautiful and quiet part of the lakes away from the honeypot sites. Loved it!

  • Bank View cottage is very stylish and cosy. We had a great time staying here. The location is great, very easy to get to the surrounding areas such as Ambleside, Coniston, Grasmere etc. We recommend the food at The Britannia Inn, which was delicious. On arrival there was a top 10 pub walks book which we used all week and completed 4/5 walks from it, this was a nice touch. We used the facilities to cook some evenings too, it was all very easy to use, pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc all provided. Overall, the cottage is very stylish and enjoyable to be in, in the beautiful Lake District. We would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon.

    Grant2019-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely little cottage in Chapel Stile which was very tastefully furnished and decorated with a lovely cosy feel. Very near a pub, a little Coop and a tea room...what else could you wish for! We would definitely stay in this cottage again and would recommend it to friends.

    Michael2019-05-11T00:00:00Z

The eggs were also much appreciated and very tasty!
