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.

  • We couldn’t be more impressed with Artie’s lodge. Everything from start to finish was top notch. Elizabeth was a fantastic host and very welcoming. The views are incredible and the lodge itself is beautiful, filled with really quirky features. Lovely touches like the gin and bath bombs made it great to relax. 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!

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.

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!

    Off the beaten track, our 16th Century farmhouse has lake frontage, stunning views and oodles of character. Relax and unwind in comfortable surroundings, we provide breakfast/lunch & dinner and plenty of activities from kayaking and mountain biking.
    Idyllic for both couples searching for a romantic getaway and families looking for a one stop shop - sleep, eat and play! Our farm (Bank Ground) known as Holly Howe in Arthur Ransome's famous children's book Swallows and Amazons, is the perfect location for a break - B&B and self catering cottages (sleeping up to 60).
    The east side on Coniston Water is unique in it's beauty and views. We are lucky to be off the beaten track so if what you are looking for is the real Lake District then look no further.

    Melvyn2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • An outstanding location and staff. We stayed for two nights and love the place so much. Jonathan, Georgina, Craig, and others were excellent, funny, and attentive. My spouse and I visited with our 11 and 9 year olds and they enjoyed as well.

    Brian2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night and we’ve been very happy. Our room was facing the lake and we couldn’t have asked for a better view. The location is perfect, has access on the lake, the B&B is very cosy, Jonathon and the staff are very friendly. Recommended!

    Stefano2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jonathon's place was fantastic. I arrived to a plate of home baked scones with jam and cream! The loft was spacious and clean with plenty of fire wood for the wood stove. The bed was comfortable and the farm was peaceful - I came away feeling completely relaxed. The location had proximity to everything I needed! I highly recommend Jonathon's place and will definitely stay there again the next time I am in Cumbria.

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

    A2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

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!

    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.

  • 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!

  • Incredibly cosy with amazing countryside views, perfect winter getaway

    Thomas2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • A beautiful spot, super hosts and a wonderful stay. I’m a very happy holiday-maker.

    Bowness-on-Windermere, England, United Kingdom

    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

    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.

    Paul2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    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

  • 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!

  • 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!

    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

  • 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.

    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

    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.

    My cosy cottage is close to Coniston Water and only a 10 minute stroll to Coniston Village centre with its selection of pubs, shops and restaurants. You’ll love the Hideaway because it is a cosy retreat for two in the heart of the Lake District where you can have great walks straight from your doorstep and then relax in front of your roaring log burning stove. (initial logs provided & Sky TV) The private garden enjoys stunning views and offers a perfect place for relaxing and al fresco dining.
  • A lovely home amongst the gorgeous hills around Coniston. Very comfortable and well worth a visit.

    Jake2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage to stay in, with a quick 20 minute walk into coniston for some great pubs and walks

    Tayla2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay in a nice small cottage suitable for a couple, just need to be careful leaving the property due to traffic driving fast past the front door, which opens onto the road.

    James2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect for a couple looking to stay close to Coniston village and Lake, only 10/15 mins walk there or less than a 5 minute drive. Lots of great little independent shops, cafes and restaurants and great walking from your front door. The cottage is very homely and cosy and with the log fire on an evening, perfect. Comfy bed, bright and airy, plenty of storage, ample parking and loads of character. Mark is only a message away and very quick to respond and could not be more helpful. We will be back! 10/10!

    The space A very quiet place close to the shore of Lake Windermere (200m away). Downstairs is an open plan room comprising lounge area with settee and sitting chairs. the dining area has a dining table and two pew type bench seats (came from a local church). The kitchen has all the normal appliances and a food prep island with two stools to sit at. There is wifi and Freesat tv. TV is wall mounted and downstairs only. Also downstairs is a small loo with washbasin and the washing machine in a small adjacent cupboard Guest access Directions are emailed a few days prior to arrival along with access details. Please note I may not be on site to welcome you or see you off at departure. Other things to note The garden is shared and you're welcome to enjoy it but please note that the surfaces are uneven and can be slippery. There are a couple of pubs/ inns that provide food but you may need to book it and space could be limited. Another great option is to get a meal delivered by a local company who actually deliver nationwide but are located in the Lake District. We have negotiated a 10% discount for our guests using the discount code THE BARN. If you search for Montgomerys dinner delivery service you should find it. Our water and heating is predominantly wood fuelled thus relatively carbon neutral. The hot water is however 'hot' so please note this. Please note that the Barn is for 4 people not any more, should you wish to exceed this for a reason please tell us before booking. Car parking is for one car only, should you need more it should be left on the raid by the junction. Again please let us know beforehand. More than 1 car clogs up the drive too much.

  • 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 :)

  • 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.

  • Hi, It was really lovely stay and apartment was cozy and calm. Red bank is near by Windermere lake and within city area where we found Sainsbury and co-op store just 3-5 min walking distance. And we got Indian restaurant within 1 mile so , overall it’s perfect place, we found for our short vacation. Thanks a lot Jane. Regards, Vivek.

  • 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.
  • 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!

  • 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.

    Sian2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovey place. Free parking! And rapid response with all my enquiries. Most importantly, spotlessly clean. Only downside was the plentiful free to eat snacks, particularly the Haribo Tanfastics - a personal favourite I try to resist.

    Daniel2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • Would highly recommend - beautiful location away from the usual tourist spots but still within reach of nice local pubs, walks etc. Gesine and Glen were amazing hosts, very easy communications and check in, possibly the cleanest Airbnb I've stayed at, and much appreciated local recommendations (Queens Heads Inn (Hawkshead) and Manor House both amazing food). The eggs were also much appreciated and very tasty!

    Philip2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay away was absolutely lovely! A perfect getaway for any couple. A lovely small cottage with everything we needed there. The greeting was lovely and we were shown where different things were. The homegrown eggs and complimentary milk made amazing scrambled egg too! Thanks very much.

    Stuart2020-01-26T00:00:00Z

    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!

  • Beautiful little flat in the perfect location, right in the heart of the Lake District. The flat was very stylish, spotlessly clean, roomy and comfortable, and had all the amenities needed for a great weekend break - and more. The host, Jenna, included some very thoughtful touches, such as a bottle of milk for the weekend, and I felt very welcome in her flat. As a host she also went the extra mile when I accidentally locked myself out of the flat - driving from a different town to come and rescue me, with no questions asked. Would definitely recommend this stay for a solo traveller or a couple - it’ll be the perfect place for your holiday.

    Rebekah2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's responses to my queries were super quick which was reassuring. The flat is spacious and clean and perfectly placed for exploring the area. Coming back to a warm place on a cold and wet February evening was really comforting. We didn't cook full meals but all the necessary utensils were there. The mechanism for operating the grill on the cooker is interesting, but follow the instructions and it all makes sense. Lovely stay, thanks Jenna!

    Paola2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's flat was perfect for our weekend away in the Lake District. It was a great size for two people, and just a couple of minutes to the centre of Bowness and even less to the open countryside. I would definitely recommend it and hopefully will be going back.

    Harry2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's place is clean and tidy, walking distance from Bowness and a good base location for whatever you want to do in the Lakes.

    Wayne2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's place is very spacious, sparkling clean and has everything you need for a stay away from home. It is ideally situated: not too far or too close from the city centre and it is perfectly placed if you want to go for a walk with lovely views of the lake. We highly recommend the place.

    Virginie2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It's a lovely Victorian apartment, very spacious - a great place to unwind after a day of walking. The kitchen is well equipped, comfy bed. Highly recommended :)

    Agata2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's apartment is well-equipped, bright and light in atmosphere. The furniture is comfortable and stylish and all amenities well above above. It is a considerable hike to the shops downtown but taxis are available and there is free parking at Booths for 3 hours, I think and half an hour at Sainsbury's. Loads to see around the area - check out National Trust and English heritage sites. Would definitely stay again!

    Joy2019-07-05T00:00:00Z

    Cottage in Near Sawrey, Lake District - peaceful ramblers paradise & home to Beatrix Potter. 3 bedrooms. Between Windermere & Esthwaite Water. Great location to explore the Lakes.

You’ll love it because of its location, views, charm & walking with no need to drive. Hawkshead close with shops & pubs. Good for families & pets.
  • Great location for exploring the western fells and we took full advantage. A very well appointed cottage and set up perfectly for a break in the national park. Thanks also for the flexibility on check-in.

    Tim2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely, quiet place (but with a pub just round the corner). It's a shame the weather didn't allow us to ever sit out in the garden, but there was ample space in the living room and kitchen to sit out a very wet day. I'd happily go back (but I'd take a spare bed-sheet, as the quilt was too hot!)

    Emma2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ees wyke is a lovely cottage in a great part of the Lake District. Easy walk to a lovely local pub and a great place for a relaxing family stay. Shop in advance as the nearest convenience store is about 2 miles away in Hawkshead which keeps fairly short opening hours. If your looking to get away from the busyness of life then I can highly recommend.

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.
  • Fantastic hosts. Lovely, clean, homely accommodation. Perfect location. Great communication. A wonderful way to spend half term!

  • Definitely recommend walking into Ings as there is a fabulous micro brewery. Cheap local beer and fab food!

  • The place was very clean, organised, cosy and big enough for its purpose. Cecilia was really kind and her hospitality was very touching.

  • Ideal self contained space with everything you need. And if you’re missing something I’m sure Cecilia would help in any way she can.

  • Cecilia has been a wonderful host who put a lot of attention to us from the time we were about to set our trip to her place and also when we were at her place. She was friendly and hospitable in receiving us to make us feel welcome. The place has a good feel of the countryside.
