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

  • Very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay here. It made our trip to the Lakes that extra bit special. Thank you for the recommendations Yassmine for where to go we enjoyed everything that you suggested. The room and facilities were fantastic. We were also very pleasantly surprised to meet the Shetland Ponies and Gusto! I highly recommend!

  • Great place.

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

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

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

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

    Tommy Bit is our shepherd's hut for 2 in Borrowdale, the heart of the Lake District. Enjoy fantastic views, cook up a meal on the campfire or curl up on the sofa in front of the wood burning stove. Fabulous walks from the hut to the lake and fells.
    Please note, we can usually only offer arrivals on Fridays and Mondays. If you wish to arrive on a day other than Monday or Friday please get in touch and we can check if we can help you. Tommy Bit is our cosy, traditionally styled shepherd's hut in Borrowdale, the English Lake District, which is nestled at the foot of the fells with wonderful valley and woodland views. Shower and toilet facilities are in our barn about 40m away. Glamping at its best! Keep snug in the winter with Tommy Bit's wood burning stove, or cook outside in the summer on the fire pit. Relax after a day exploring the Lakes in our wood fired outdoor hot tub (£25 for exclusive use for a day, please book in advance). We provide tea & coffee and Tommy Bit has a kettle, toaster, microwave and fridge inside and a fire pit outside for you to cook up an outdoor storm! Or you can try one of the local hotels for dinner. Bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery and appropriate cooking things are provided. Tommy Bit has a fold down small double bed (4ft wide instead of 4ft 6), which folds away, fully made up, into a sofa in the day. There is a folding table with stools inside as well as outdoor table and chairs. In case of rain, a tarpaulin can be suspended from wires above the outdoor area. There is a shared room nearby with washer, drier, lots of tourist information and puzzles and games that you can take back to the hut. We also provide all our guests with our 'walks from the door' which we have written ourselves: 12 walks of varying lengths that you can enjoy straight out of the gate.
    Manesty is less than a mile from the Derwentwater lakeshore and about the same distance from the pretty village of Grange, with its teashops and double hump-backed bridge over the River Derwent. The 'Honister Ramber' bus takes you the 5 miles into Keswick (which has the nearest shops) from the doorstep between Easter and November, or the launch runs all-year round, as does a bus from Grange. We're in a perfect location for walks, water sports, touring the villages, or just sitting back to relax! We're at the foot of Catbells, which is well known as the Lake's favourite beginner's fellwalk, but there are also challenging day hikes up Scafell (the highest mountain in England) or relaxing rambles by the lake or in the woods.
  • Had a fantastic stay, Alan & Cheryl were amazing hosts who were really accommodating, and were always available if we ever needed them. Perfect place to stay near Keswick but feel like you are a million miles away, definitely a must place to stay

    Danny2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepard’s hut is cosy and has everything you could need for a weekend away. We would definitely recommend the hot tub! The walks from the door are great too and there is something for all levels. Alan and Cheryl are great hosts and will make sure you have everything you need for a great stay.

    Brett2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The hut was lovely and cosy and we had everything we needed. We could tell a lot of thought had gone into ensuring visitors got the most out of their time here and we really appreciated all the information provided. In particular, the walks from the door were very useful and allowed us to do a couple of decent hikes despite not being familiar with the area. The location was absolutely fantastic with beautiful views - even better than we imagined! Would massively recommend booking the fire powered hot tub for the day which was a unique experience and it was lots of fun making the fire too!

    Claire2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The shepherds hut was fantastic!! Such a cute, homely space where we felt like we had got away from the world into this space of simplicity! Had to think about food before we went as there are limited cooking facilities. Comfortable and warm enough (we went over new year), lovely and cosy! Alan was great - he gave us lots of local tips and was clearly very passionate about the property. We didn’t get use of the hot tub sadly as it was booked up, however we never saw it in use during our stay. Would recommend :)

    Leah2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 3 nights in the shepherd’s hut and have not a bad word to say about our time. The space was clean and comfortable and cosy. The views were stunning. Communication from Alan and Cheryl was fabulous. We were told all we needed to know and more and really appreciate the effort that is made to make sure we got the most from our trip like Alan’s knowledge of the local area and the walks from the door. The facilities by the accomodation were also absolutely great and we didn’t want for anything. Despite visiting in December and the weather leaving a lot to be desired our stay was comfortable and we were warm and cosy. We hired the hot tub and would definitely recommend. It was a treat even in poor weather. The walk into Keswick was an easy one and it’s such a lovely town. A fantastic spot for a few nights away from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be back!

    Charlotte2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to get away from it all-thankyou.

    Deeanne2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Alan & Cheryl are wonderful, attentive and hospitable hosts. Their cabin was comfortable and quaint. Perfect if you're seeking an escape from the city and a calming weekend in nature. Definitely recommend the hot tub!

    Vidhya2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! Such a cute space. Amazing walks and scenery right outside the door. Super great hosts!

  • Caryn’s place is absolutely stunning and we feel lucky to have had the chance to stay here. It’s a lovely big space, very arty and peaceful - lovely big bath, comfortable sofa, smart tv, coffee machine and Caryn even baked us some bread and left yoghurts, orange juice and milk in the fridge. It was perfect. The house is right in the heart of Kendal so despite the rain we found lots to do and there is a lovely pub at the end of the road. If you are driving there and parking your car just be aware it’s extremely tight and narrow on the road so opt for a smaller car if possible! Thank you Caryn for having us we’d love to visit again one day. Mick & Caroline

    Mick2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay with amazing hospitality

    Eleana2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic late January stay at Colour House. The apartment is as impressive, arty and spacious as it looks in the pictures and the additional touches of local produce, home baked bread, tea, coffee etc. were great. The location in the heart of Kendal is excellent and we found the buses provided a cheap and easy way to explore into the Lakes, whether to Windermere, Ambleside or Cartmel for its restaurants (the latter a short taxi ride from Grange over Sands). Caryn was a perfect and very welcoming host. Very friendly, quick to reply to questions pre visit and asked us if we wanted anything from the shops during our stay. The weekend was to mark a milestone birthday and provided great memories for us. We will definitely stay again if/when we revisit the area. Thank you Caryn!

    Adam2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Caryn is a wonderful host, We really enjoyed our stay. We were well looked after. Already looking forward to planning another trip to Kendal.

    Anna2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a very relaxing few days at the colour house. Caryn is a wonderfully thoughtful host. The colour house is a great base to be able to explore Kendal and the Lakes.

    Claire2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I’ll start with one word! Wow! What a fantastic space! Our little family trio had the most wonderful little trip to Kendal for a two night stay in in winter! Caryn was so welcoming and made our stay really comfortable! To finish off our break we woke to a picture perfect view of snowy rooftops and chimneys on the Sunday! Made it very difficult to leave!! Thanks for having us Caryn! Looking forward to booking with you again in the new year!! Kim, James abs little Ralph x x x

    Kim And James2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Huge warm, homely but stylish living room with WiFi, big TV, DVDs, Netflix, books, magazines and games galore, lots of sofas and pouffes on which to sit or sprawl and a fine view over the rooftops of Kendal to the fells beyond. Free standing bath, double sink, lovely soap and shampoo.. Mattress had a bit of a dip but otherwise comfortable, hot water bottles provided. Caryn was an excellent host, providing breakfast, homemade bread, flowers, washing up our pots and even asking us if we needed any shopping doing! With a extra supplement for my partner on top of cleaning fees etc. the place was a bit more than I'd normally pay for somewhere without cooking facilities but a lovely treat for Christmas.

    Gaynor2019-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, really unique! Fantastic hospitality, some really thoughtful touches like homemade bread and mince pies. Very flexible with check-in and out times, very welcoming with quick responses.

    My stone terrace cottage is located in one of Kendal's conservation areas and 5 minutes walk to the station, town centre and the river Kent. The cottage is a cosy, quiet, relaxing space with an enclosed wildlife garden at the back of the house.
    The house was built in 1820 as an old weavers house apparently. I renovated it 8 years ago with an open plan kitchen and lounge with wood burning stove. The kitchen has an fan oven and gas hob, fridge and freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave, and everything you need to cook meals or enjoy a take-out. There is a small kitchen table and chairs that you can get out and use in the house or for breakfast in the garden. The log burner is a treat in winter with a free supply of wood. There is Wifi and a selection of books and maps, allowing you to make the most of your stay. The bedroom is a good size with a comfortable double bed, wardrobe (with full length mirror inside), chest of draws and chair. The bathroom has a bath/shower combination. The enclosed garden out the back gets the sun in the morning till early evening in the summer so you can sit have breakfast or dinner and watch the bees buzzing around wildflowers, pick herbs for cooking or alpine strawberries for breakfast if there are any left :) There's bike (or general kit) storage out the back or in the cellar should you need it. Also bike cleaning facilities. You will have a parking permit for the local area so can park for free either outside the house or nearby. It does get full late afternoon when residents come back from work so you might have to park in one of the adjacent streets. its fine to load outside the door though. Everyone does it.
    Kendal is an old market town situated in what i think is one of the most beautiful parts of the country – the Lake District. Its also within 30 minutes drive of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, making it a perfect base for outdoor sport addicts, walkers and sightseers....

    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.

  • This cottage is in the perfect location with the lakes and Beatrix Potter only round the corner, and plenty of pubs, restaurants and cafes nearby, and the cottage itself is very quiet and has everything your home would have. Perfect for families or with friends.

    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.
  • A rare and wonderful find - superb hosts and a great location for walking and pubs. A true little gem!

    Anni2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!).

    Set in a quiet converted Mews, the Granary is a cosy, light and spacious apartment with bath and shower, kitchen, dining area, lounge and separate bedroom with king sized bed.
    There is a window seat in the lounge offering a view of Knipe Scar. The private garden has a lockable shed for storage of bikes or other outdoor equipment.
    There is a village store/Post Office a 2 minute walk from the property and two pubs within half a mile. There are lots of other good pubs and cafes between 3 and 10 miles away. Details of these and menus where possible are stored at the Granary. It's a great location for walking. You can access a footpath which takes you down to the river, a quarter of a mile away, without having to go on roads, and there you'll find the peaceful riverside path. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of hill and mountain walks offering great views of Haweswater and Ullswater. There are over 30 laminated guided walks stored at the property, to give you some ideas to get started. There are also loads of great places for cycling and other outdoor activities.
  • Lovely stay in quiet Bampton. Well appreciated touch of a few goodies in the fridge. The apartment was clean, warm and cosy, would definitely stay here again.

    Dan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte was great at replying to any questions we had before we arrived and gave clear instructions on how to find the place. Lots of local information provided as well! The place was really clean and it's easy to travel to all of the lakes. There is a lovely bridge and river just north of Butterwick (a couple of minutes drive away) and can be seen from the road, it's worth taking a quick look if you get the chance.

    Lizzie2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our hosts were fantastic. They do not live on the property but when we arrived as the area is a beautiful remote place they come down to make sure we were on accessing the place as we got a little lost. Communication was very quickly responded to and they were always there to help if needed. A great recommendation for food was much appreciated and the area was perfect for what we wanted. I cannot say enough how great Charlotte and Bob were. I would absolutely stay with you guys again. Thank you for a great weekend.

    Rayhan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte was a great host, giving clear directions and easy to communicate with. The place was very clean and an ideal base for a couple to explore the Lake District.

    Emma2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte's place is lovely and cosy. We had a brilliant weekend and would love to stay again!

    Jonathan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte was one of the best hosts I’ve dealt with on AirBnB, she went above and beyond for us and was incredibly accommodating. The Granary itself was a beautiful property and the views were amazing, the rooms and bathroom were clean and everything worked perfectly! I would love to be back and would definitely recommend.

    Faiz2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Charlotte's lovely Penrith getaway is amazing! It's the perfect size for a couple or individual to get that country escape you're after! She is also a polite and very responsive host, so you'll never feel like there is anything missing as she definitely delivers that personal touch. Would highly recommend.

    Luso2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    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!

    Due to covid 19 we are currently closed. But when it is safe to open you will find a quiet country hut situated in a private area alongside our family home in Windermere. The hut is crafted with every attention to detail considered. Including a kitchen area and shower room, underfloor heating, a TV, WiFi and a double bed all furnished in a very stylish decor. Through the pretty picture window you can see the outside space complete with Chiminea and tranquil country views. A perfect hideaway!
    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.
  • Oakland Hut is a hidden gem. We booked this as a super last minute getaway as our ski holiday was cancelled, and we are so glad we did! We had such a lovely time and had everything we needed within the hut itself, with local amenities just a short walk away. It’s so cosy inside and the surroundings are just beautiful. Would love to come back one summer to make use of the outdoor seating and bbq! Jo and Darren were great hosts, highly recommend :)

    Libby2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jo’s place is super clean and although small, perfectly formed. Jo had left scones for us when we arrived which were delicious and a lovely touch. Everything in the hut is of high quality and there’s a terrace which I’m sure is lovely in the summer. It’s a short walk to Windermere with various restaurants and pubs etc. Would definitely recommend it to a friend - thanks so much Jo!

    Antonia2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • Beautiful stylish apartment right in the centre of Windermere. We loved our stay here, the projector screen was amazing after a long day and all the extra little touches were so lovely (sweets, prosecco, coffee machine). Very quick responses from Juliet if we had any questions. Will definitely stay here when we next visit the lakes!

    Claire2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is beautiful throughout. The location is very central so easy to find restaurants and shops. Communication between the hosts and myself was very quick and they made sure to cover all areas and was always there to help if needed. The little touches they added just made the stay extra special, they had a sweet box for us and my dog even had his own treats. I will be booking with them again when I go back to Windermere.

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!

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.

This charming hideaway is ideal for couples on a romantic break or solo business travellers.
    There are so many lovely places to eat and drink on the doorstep that it is difficult to know where to start! The Villa Positano is an excellent Italian restaurant that is at the bottom of our stairs; at the end of The Ginnel you'll find Bodega Bar which does great tapas and across the street there is the famous Vinegar Jones Fish and Chip Shop. All within a minute's walk! If you are prepared to go for a two minute walk, you'll find the two best cocktail bars for miles around. One at either end of Ash Street. The Country Hut is warm and welcoming and does great cider and rum punch, the Fizzy Tart is glamorous and upmarket. There are tons of places beyond Ash Street and discovering them is a joy in itself, so I won't spoil it for you!
  • Perfect place to stay in the heart of Bowness! This was a cosy spot to retreat to in bad weather and to use as a base when exploring Bowness or venturing further afield to the lakes, towns, fells and mountains. Spotlessly clean on arrival with an easy check in and check out. Would recommend!

    Charlotte2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

  • 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
  • Perfect location for a quick walk to the local bars, restaurants and lake front. Megan's place has all the amenities you need and a parking space too. It was clean, tidy and good value for money.

    Official Visit England 3*** Gold rating !
    Very quiet and private location but only 10 mins walk into Windermere town centre or down to the lake.
  • A lovely Airbnb in perhaps the best possible Windermere location. Less than a five minute walk to both lake and town. Also a wonderful base from which to explore the rest of the lakes. :)

    Olivia2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The secret nook is stylish and has a warm touch of home, plus a little more extra special pretty touches. I have enjoyed my stay there and should I come back to England and the area would definitely want to stay at the secret nook 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.

  • Loveday was the place of dreams. We couldn't have asked for a better stay! There were so many thoughtful touches and lots of great information in the cottage for surrounding walks, meals out and things to do! We can't wait to return.

    Gina2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • I booked Loveday cottage for my parents for a weekend, and they have had the most amazing time. They have asked me to pass on their review! They said that Loveday cottage was a piece of paradise! Everything is of a very high quality and would recommend to anyone! Also Emma and Gregor very kindly left some homemade brownies, that my mum said were the best she ever had!! Thank you!

    Sinead2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • So lovely and cosy. Probably the best bath, I‘ve ever had.

    Grace2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Back to reality after what was the most relaxing and tranquil weekend. Loveday was just perfect for what we needed and exceeded all expectations. The perfect place to unwind and put your feet up after long walks and breathtaking scenery, all a stones throw from the cottage. Thank you for making our weekend so special.

    Kate2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Rhys2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully thought out accommodation, with plenty of little touches. The bath is simply amazing! Struggled to decide between soaking away the evening or curled up in front of the log burner. Fully equipped and spotless kitchen with underfloor heating. We had an amazing weekend away and very glad we decided to stay here. Excellent hosts.

    Lucy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage has everything you want! It’s Spacious, very clean, well equipped, cosy fire, amazing wooden bath and the best homemade brownies we’ve ever had.

  • 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.

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

    Aayushi2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is immaculate, very cozy, well-positioned in the centre of town, and Fiona is a splendid host. Highly recommended! We had a wonderful stay and will be coming back as soon as possible

    Sophie2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Beth2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Emily2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    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!

    William2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

The cottage has two very spacious double rooms, each with their own bathroom which was really convinient as we stayed as two couples. The kitchen is very well stocked and allowed us the opportunity to cook meals and enjoy them together at the dining room table. However there were also a wide range of places to eat less than five minutes walk away. Exceptionally clean. We would definitely stay again.

    Anneka2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is beautiful with outstanding, modern furnishings. Communication was great and the location is ideal. Really close to Windermere village but still really quiet. Perfect for family, couple getaways.

  • This was my first trip to the Lake District, and I was a bit cautious of staying in a central location. But I'm glad I made the choice to stay at the Admiral's Nest for my first visit. Peter was a wonderful host, and extended some lovely gestures for us. The location was easy to find, check in simple. The apartment had everything we needed and we felt very much at home - good WiFi, a full kitchen for us to prepare meals etc...very warm and cosy. The only thing to note - this place is very central. So when it's busy, there may be noise from outside in the evenings...or you can go out and join the folk!

    Hari2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • 2nd time staying in this apartment, Perfectly situated in the village, lots of restaurants & bars to choose from. Apartment has everything you could possibly need, lovely outdoor space too.

  • Super host, lovely place and a great location, they couldn't have done more for us

    Martin2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Peter and Alison have a charming apartment in central Bowness. The apartment was even nicer than we expected and Peter was a great host. We had a lovely break and cannot recommend The Admirals Nest highly enough.

    Simon2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is a cosy little bolthole just a stone’s throw from Lake Windermere - the perfect location super near to bars, restaurants, shops and the hills. All we needed for a girls adventure weekend. Highly recommend.

    Caroline2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Our second stay at Admirals Nest... did not disappoint! Perfect location, set amongst the best of Bowness yet peaceful and comfortable. Many thanks

    This is a cosy private room in a terraced house 5 minutes walk away from central Kendal. You will be easy reach of cafes, the castle, the beautiful river & the brewery arts centre. The space is shared with my partner Michelle & the dog, you have access to all the communal spaces & are welcome to cook. Think hostel simplicity! We are a lived in house so spaces will not be sparkling clean but hygienic 😊 Your bedding & towels always laundered but never ironed 😊 on street parking available.
    Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and laundry facilities. A free continental breakfast of cereal and toast is included not to mention as much tea, coffee, chai, herbal tea etc as you like. You are more than welcome to use the kitchen to cook, we have oil, spices etc that you are more than welcome to use. There is no dishwasher unfortunately so the only downside is the washing up :) If you want to get here early or make the best of your last day you can leave your luggage in our front room, as long as the room is vacated by 11 we're not fussy.
  • Great hosts, a well set up space, and a lovely dog.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • 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

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

    Located in a quiet cul du sac in the historic market town of Kendal with convenient access to the M6, Lake District & Yorkshire dales. The cosy cabin suitable for a maximum of 2 adults and 2 children is a 20min walk to town centre along the scenic River Kent or 4min walk to the fantastic Romney’s pub with its fabulous food & fine ales. There is parking available & a private outside decking area. Don’t want to walk ? We are a 30sec walk to the bus stop
    Our cabin is twin skinned and fully insulated which keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. Decking area is completely secluded and overlooks a small wooded area . Fully functioning kitchen with oven, hob, microwave,kettle and toaster. Private double bedroom with small double sofa bed in the lounge. Fully fitted bathroom with shower, vanity unit and heated towel rail.
    Lovely quiet area with friendly neighbours, the fabulous Romney’s pub with amazing food and great atmosphere only a 4 minute walk away. Great base to explore northern England's greatest scenery.
  • Lovely little place. Close to the river, short walk up to the town. Close to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Absolutely loved it there; warm, cosy cabin, furnished with extras. Would definitely recommend

    Tierni2020-03-22T00:00:00Z

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Just returned from a 3 night stay in this lovely, warm cabin. Welcomed by Dave who had tips on the local dog friendly pub (unfortunately didn't get chance to call in as too much to do) and local walks. Plenty of space for a couple with off road parking and close to the river for an easy, flat 15-20 minute walk into town or head downstream towards Sizergh Castle for a longer walk. The cabin was spotless, well equipped with good quality furnishings. Even included shampoo, conditioner and liquid soap as well as washing up liquid. Something few self catering properties have. Good wifi, again this is rare in the Lakes. Shame it's a little early in the year to fully enjoy the enclosed, private decking area. I bet its lovely to have tea out there in summer.

The welcome goodie box was a really nice touch too. The place is clean, warm, and cosy, especially with the wood burner. This is a great place for families or just a couples get away weekend.

  • A very comfortable, clean and well equipped house, in a lovely, quiet location. David went above and beyond, both with his communication before our trip, and with the little extras he left for us in the house. A very thoughtful touch! I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at Mintside, and would love to stay again myself!

  • A lovely base for exploring the Lake District. Has everything you want and is a surprisingly spacious and well-appointed house

  • A lovely two bedroom cottage - rustic on the outside and modern on the inside, and within walking distance of the train station, local pubs, shops and restaurants, and most importantly Lake Windermere. A great find!

    Arkin2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our 3 nights at Cosy Nook in Windermere. The place was fantastic - with all the amenities you could need. It was lovely & ‘cosy’, which was much appreciated as we unfortunately stayed during storm Denis! Communication with the hosts was brilliant, & they helped a few times with practical things - making it the break away relaxing & easy. The location was brilliant - very close to shops, restaurants, transport...It’s about 10mins walk from Windermere train station, & 25mins walk down to the Bowness & the lake. Would definitely book again (& hope for better weather next time) :-)

    Tabz2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! Really quick to communicate back with us, check in was simple and easy, really clean too. Only thing I would say was we were cold downstairs but very hot upstairs and the only way you can change is by ringing the office which on a Saturday night we doubted anyone would be around! Thanks so much :)

    Holly2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The property is close to Windermere train station. Bus stations are also within walking distance. The location is very convenient. The heating and hot water stayed warm all the time. Wi-Fi is steady. The house is nice and comfy. We highly recommend this place!
