Holiday Cottages With Gardens In Windermere To Rent

Windermere has a lovely selection of garden cottages for your Lake District holiday. Whether you want to get away with a loved one or a large group there are many perks to having your own garden on a self catering cottage holiday. From having your own spot to relax in and enjoy the fresh air, to letting the kids run around; gardens are a welcome addition to a Windermere holiday cottage at any time of year.


Making the most of your Windermere cottage with a garden


Having your own garden on holiday is highly sought after, and with so many advantages it is easy to see why. If you are on holiday with the kids it is a great way to let them burn off some energy outside, but where you can easily keep an eye on them. They can play to their heart's content, and you can enjoy a well deserved cup of tea; it’s a win-win situation.

If you’re also bringing your pet, there are some garden cottages that are pet friendly too. A garden cottage has the added advantage that you can let your furry friend out for some fresh air but without needing to venture too far. When the weather is good, the al fresco eating opportunities are a welcome addition to a relaxing Windermere holiday. Whether you take dinner outside to enjoy the long summer evenings, or enjoy breakfast outside to make the most of the first rays of the day, holiday cottages with gardens have many benefits.

Nearby you can visit the quaint villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside and Grasmere

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages With Gardens In Windermere To Rent.

Daphne - verified booking

"Lovely house and great location but frustrated occupants. Lovely christmas tree thanks. Lovely Aga. Good fridge/freezer capacity. Batterie de cuisine fit for purpose esp knife sharpening steel. Welcome basket lovely but would have liked the pepper grinder filled and decent salt and a small amount of milk for tea on arrival.There was no soap/ hand wash at all in the house! After a long journey seven people wanted the bathroom..............Fortunately we got there in time and knew the Coop opened late from previous visits. We would have despaired if we turned up later or were newbies to Bowness. For the number of people accommodated little space for hanging up/drying outdoor gearNo doormat so the hall floor got muckyOur Main bedroom hopelessly inadequate hanging and storage for clothes . We lived out of the suitcase for the week which was the last thing we expected for the price paid.There were no bath mats. Getting out of baths onto a slippery floor is not good and There were no oven gloves! Eek - a massive Aga- Xmas roasts- burnt hands. Not good. Inadequate quantity of wine and water glasses of same size for the total occupants.We were unable to negotiate the various black boxes and three controls linked to the TV the one or two occasions we wanted to view.Lastly, we are are committed to recycling. We found it confusing. No provision for plastic or card, yet a green bin down the road clearly indicated mixed recycling . Some of us took plastic home to recycle. Feel this is really important for the impact of the tourism industry.We did pop into the local office which said it sent an email about some of the above but did not have any response. We felt inhibited about contacting the phone number so close to Xmas"

"Excellent location.... That's we're the good news ends, very tired property which is fine for the price and that can be excused. But.... damp in upstairs on suite, (could smell it not see it) damp in main bathroom. Dado rail's were black with dust, as we're skirting boards, don't think master bedroom had been hoovered between guests as found toenails on bedroom floor, not 100% convinced master bedroom sheets had been changed, there was blood on the sheets on one of the beds in back bedroom. Heading down stairs I had to clean the bath before use, the none slip mat is covered in mould, in living room, dvd doesn't always work, carpet next to skirting boards is black, dog hairs throughout the property (I knew pets were allowed but in previous properties I've stayed in this has never been a problem). In dinning room my 2 year old spilt some milk so moped it up and left a clean line on the floor. Kitchen was actually fine but had to clean the glasses before use. This property is filthy dirty, would not recommend I appreciate its nearing the end of a season and would expect things to be tired but can not forgive being dirty. Nearly left after 1st day, glad I didn't enjoyed windomere and will return but not this property. To be honest can not complain about Cumbrian cottages or owner really as I made an error in not reporting issues immediately so they did not have a chance to rectify any issues and cleaned and muddled through myself, however if this is representative of their properties I will look elsewhere in future."

"We really enjoyed our time at S18718 cottage. We did have to do a U-turn upon arrival because the entrance comes up quick and is a STEEP drive down to find the cottages behind Priory Manor, but the second time... we got it! It was clean and had most everything we could have asked for. We cooked many of our own meals and didn't want for any utensils or dishes. I swore I read that tea and sugar were provided, so I was a bit disappointed I had to spend my first evening with the view of the lake without a cuppa! Paper towels and an additional tea towel would have been nice as staying for a week without a dishwasher and 2 children, we went through a lot of dishes. The bedrooms were small but just right for the time we were there. Our girls bunked up and loved it! We found the bed very comfy and got an excellent night sleep with the windows open and the lake breeze coming in. The location was a great base for exploring the area. Brockhole was great and we spent three separate days there - brilliant for it to be a short drive in the car! With small kids though, there is nothing within walking distance. Older children or adults could easily walk into town if they wanted. We loved the private jetty and enjoyed morning and late afternoon trips down to the water with the kids."

"The location is good for Windermere, but Bowness has more attractions. Cleaning appears to be an unknown concept the house was dirty. The tooth brush glass on the sink was dirty with someone else’s tooth paste, gritty surfaces and fridge, cobwebs and dust around ceiling and lights. We moved an arm chair when looking for one of the kids toys and the area under and behind had obviously not been cleaned for a long time. The cooker however had all the settings rubbed off, so the hob you could work out but the oven was difficult to use not knowing what temperature it was at etc. The WiFi hardly works. It must be noted that the staircases in the property are steep, which would need to be considered for young children, elderly etc. The little drive although tight for a big car was a god send as we were there for Easter and there was no street parking available. With a good clean, updated kitchen appliances and a different internet provider this could be an excellent place to stay."

"We had a lovely 2 week stay. Warm and cosy. Comfortable lounge furniture and beds. No instructions for the TV but sussed out the Apple TV bit in the end. Internet connection ok but a bit slow. Regarding the location, could do with another mirror to get out of the drive so you can see both ways in the car - it was a bit nerve wracking. No footpath down to the roundabout so you have to be careful. About 3 mins walk to bus stop with good services, (allow extra time to cross the roads at the roundabout). About 15 mins walk into Windermere. From the car park there are steps down to a gate, then sloping gravel path then 3 or 4 more steps. The step from the gate to the gravel path is a big one -could do with extra stone step, & that section of handrail is starting to rot. Lots of leaves at this time of year so could be very slippy when it rains - we cleared them when we were there to make it easier. All in all a lovely first visit to the Lake District even though weather variable."
