The cottage was in the perfect location for checking out windermere. The cottage itself was clean, everything worked and was a welcome home for us during our stay.
Great location, lovely cottage, parking a nightmare

Lovely cottage with fantastic bedrooms. Great location just a moment from Windermere shops, yet in a quiet street. Parking at front of cottage really only for small cars. As we were meeting my Son and family from USa and they had a hire car, that posed a problem. Where to park? No room in the road (double yellow lines) Car parks free overnight but hugely expensive during the day. Eventually we found a road about 10 mins walk away without yellow lines. Easy road parking it definitely isn't! We had a lovely holiday and the welcome and service were excellent.
quaint spot and an oasis of calm

We had a wonderful time and the area is absolutely fab. House is very comfortable for all ages. However we did encounter two problems which were a little inconvenient for us and that firstly regarding the rubbish. The bin was completely full when we arrived and there were no instructions relating to same so we were forced to bring our rubbish with us every where we went and attempt to dispose of it in a council bin etc. It was very inconvenient for us. Secondly the information booklet in the house was sadly lacking and when we did ask about a play ground for our little one we were informed that there was not any. In fact there was a fantastic play ground not a ten minute walk from the house. So a little more home work I would say. Other than that the house itself had everything we could possibly need. I would return there again.
shame about the parking

the service was good from Syke's
the property was well equipped although the lounge
would be a bit cramped for full occupancy
some nice touches eg maps and compass
good location being within walking distance of the
station, supermarket and pubs
it was a shame that the description about the
had not been a little more accurate as the space
only really big enough for a small car and not at
suitable for the people carrier we were in.
