“Central location in the heart of Windermere”
The service we received was fantastic. The cottage was welcoming and quaint, although a hinge on the kitchen door was loose and we had to tighten the screws to stop the door falling off. The rooms were lovely and the shower worked perfectly as well as the heating for those cold wet days. The garden is small, btu seating is plentiful, but small dogs like my little Yorkie could get under the gate if left unattended so make sure to be outside with your dog at all times. That said, he really enjoyed his first holiday :-) The cottage is centrally located in windermere, seconds away from the Co-op and other local shops for those essentials. Plenty of cafes and takeaways nearby and a lovely park for early morning dog walks along the road. We really enjoyed walking up Orrest Head - the start of it being only 5 minutes away from the cottage. We had no problems with finding a parking space using the permit. There were builders working on a building very close by, but we are early birds so their noise didn't effect us at all. One thing I would say is that the guest folder containing info about the cottage is out of date, the inventory dated back to 2008!!! An up to date version would have been good.

Response from the manager Thank you for your review on this property We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay at this property and the beds were not to your liking. Unfortunately we are unable to cater for all needs with regards to mattresses and we hope that this did not detract too much from your stay in the Lake District. We hope we can welcome you back to one of our properties in the future. Lakes Cottage Holidays
“Ideal location and a pleasant property”
We chose this property and location for the public transport links, you can get almost everywhere by bus(so no need to worry about not having a car), its just a short walk down to bowness on windermere, for the ferries/boats, the property it self is lovely and quiet, more than enough room for 5 people and a pet, the cleanliness is up there with the best, parking can be a pain but not a problem,there is 2 mini supermarkets within a minutes walk, a butchers and a supermarket about 5-10 mins up the road. So if you plan going to the lake district by public transport this is the property for you
Response from the manager Thank you for your recent review on Granary Nook We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at this property. This property is indeed ideally located for those who wish to travel to the Lake District without a car. The train and bus routes located only a few minutes away provide direct links throughout the Lakes. We hope to welcome you back to one of our properties in the future. Kind Regards Lakes Cottage Holidays
“Delightful! Would stay again.”
Granary Nook was exactly what we were looking for. The cottage it's self was small but perfectly formed, very well equipped. The only disappointment was it being up a narrow alley, opposite a funeral directors and beside a current renovation project ( where the workers swore like troopers all day) this aside, Granary Nook was central for walks, days out, shops, restraunts and pubs. We would certainly stay again.
Granary Nook is very close by everything,it is within 100 meters of 4 takeaways,3 pubs,a bank,post office corner shop and many coffee shops.Parking with the permit is very convenient the cottage is on 3 floors so anyone with stair problems should think again.Only a mile to Bowness 500 meters to Orsthead hill and 400 meters from the train station the only downside for me was the lack of a view as the building is surrounded by other property but all in all a good clean holiday cottage.
“great location, convenient for everything”
great location and convenient for all amenities. House was very cosy but was let down by building work going on next door. The next door bakery was an irresistable temptation and the funeral parlour behind meant very quiet neighbours! Didnt like the fact there were no recycling facilities at the cottage,everything had to go in the one bin-surely everyone recycles these days and doesnt mind doing it on holiday? great for our family though and we would return-there was no cot when we arrived but the people in the office sorted this out very quickly
Would not use Cottage Holiday Group the booking agent again. For 2 reasons: Car parking in the house details clearly stated that the pass provided was for 'all car parks'. We parked the the nearest car park with the pass provided and get a £30 fine! They would not entertain that it had been their negligence that had caused the situation. Also we left a book in the house. They wanted a £10 'admin charge' above the postage to return it! Have been going to lake district twice a year for 30 years - but will not use these jokers again.
“Up to expectations”
A very good central location for all the joys of the lakes, good shopping area and very handy for the fells. Had a very enjoyable stay.
“this cottage bears little comparison to the brochure description”
upon arriving @ the office in windermere to pick the keys up, the staff were pleasant & cheerful & most helpful.Upon entering the cottage we noticed a musty smell,on 1st inspection the cottage decor looked very tired,kitchen was abit adhoc affair, the cupboad doors were all out of alignment did not open correctly, the cutlery draw fell out when opened,the frdge-freezer was very dated.On inspecting the bedrooms the single bedroom on the top floor had extensively water damaged ceiling which continued down the walls behind the wardrobe in the form of milldew & mould this was also visible in the 1st floor bedroom,we realised we could not stop there as we had an infant in our party who is asthmatic this was the reason for booking a 3 bed cottage.I returned to the office & expressed my concerns,staff in the office were most helpful & tried their best to rectify the situation or come up with a compromise.This they did by offering us accomodation in smaller superior accomodatin Maple Leaf cottage.This we were grateful for as the other option was to go back home.I would have an easier time writing a favourable review on Maple Leaf cottage.Although the staff were very helpful & could not fault them, I feel that the property (Granary Nook) should have been inspected more thoroughly in advance of our arrival as the problems it had weren't an overnight thing & on perusal of the visitors we were not alone together with the missing pages.
“A spacious, comfortable, clean cottage in an ideal area of the L”
Although the cottage is tucked away up a driveway out of the way of the hustle and bustle of Windermere Town it is still in the thick of it with lots of bars and shops on your doorstep to choose from. It is only one mile away from Bowness on Windermere so easily within walking distance of Lake Windermere (about 20 minutes). The cottage was spacious, comfortable and clean and felt like a home from home with everything you would need. We would definitely stay again. Parking the car was a bit tricky but once we had found a space, due to the location of the cottage, we didn't need to move it and only used it once anyway. All in all a great place to stay.
