What our customers are saying about our Child Friendly Cottages In Windermere To Rent.

Annie - verified booking

"Cottage was perfectly situated for amenities and walking into Bowness but having two dogs with us there was nowhere for them to go of a night for toilet and as weather not always pleasant didn't fancy walking round streets looking for grass!! also parking was rather "tight", had to park right under bedroom window and "tuck" the car in as much as possible to allow other vehicles to pass, did damage front of car on very low wall as it was a tight squeeze turning round so could drive out of driveway instead of backing out as straight onto a busy road. Did have couple of problems with heating and pipes "knocking" during night, did get chap out but couldn't stop the "knocking" which keep us awake somewhat, plus not sure what or who were above us but not the quietest, were up and about early!!! Also taps in kitchen were very hard to switch on and off and as I have arthritis in hands struggled to use them ie fill kettle and wash dishes, just needed a little adjustment I think. Did say there was Freeview but there was a very limited amount of freeview available? not sure why ? as weather turned really wet we stayed in a cottage couple days as would have liked a little more choice of viewing. Found the cottage a little dark having to have lights on in hallway most of time and kitchen also had to have lights on when in there but comfortable otherwise and as I said ideally situated for amenities and motorway."

"The cottage is cosy, homely and full of character. It is generally spacious and clean and is in a fantastic location to access the amenities of Windermere town centre, with Bowness a 20-30 minute walk away. The kitchen is pretty well equipped, with fridge, freezer, washing machine (although this was out of order when we stayed), cooking utensils etc. The shower was good and the spa bath a nice surprise.It would be even better to know that feedback from customers is being acted upon, as I agree with other reviewers about the shortage of cutlery and the issues with the heating, which seemed to be on permanently (in a hot July) and no instructions on how to control it or set a timer. Turning down the thermostat made only a small difference. Perhaps some "guest information" inside the cottage might be helpful on this topic?One of the most important things to note, is that if you have anything other than a very small car, the "dedicated parking space" is no good. Be aware!However, despite this, the cottage was certainly very comfortable with lots of charm and we certainly enjoyed our stay, which is why I've still given it a high rating."

"cottage looked really nice on photos feedback looked good on most sites. Unfortunately that's were it ended, furniture was tired there were cob webs and spiders across the ceilings. Shower was broken and when reported it the first day, we were made to feel we had done it as she had checked that day. When going to bed at night it felt damp in the bed rooms and as the week went on the clothes in the wardrobe got damper. The cottage is advertised friendly for dogs that right the cottage is the outside is not as there are no gates stopping them getting into the grounds at the front were the other cottage is, the garden to the side you can not see them and there are other hazards such as a old storage shed and the veg garden is now covered in grass watch your ankles in the ploughed parts as all over grown. All doors are fire doors and they are very stiff to open, and the front step needs to be better for access in and out.The one up side is the location to walks, other areas and the village."

Mrs Hay - verified booking

" The booking process and all subsequent communication was quick and easy (refreshing in this day and age). The cottage perfectly matched its description. It was cosy and extremely well equipped. It's location couldn't have been much better - it was a lovely 5 minute walk into town. It was adjacent to a busy road but up a steep drive, which led to experiencing no noise (unless the windows were left open at the front) and excellent views across to the fells - you could only see the road if you looked down out of certain windows so very much felt that you were in a rural location. We knew from the cost that it wasn't going to be "high end", which was reflected in things that didn't matter to us - a few imperfections with flooring, beading and the odd piece of furniture. Thank you to Sykes and the owners. We had a fabulous time. "

Sharad - verified booking

"Caxton Nook is located very centrally in Windermere close to pubs and restaurants. If driving, handy for the A591 south to Kendal and North to Ambleside.There are parking spaces for all the cottages. Some are holiday let’s and some are rental occupied I think. The parking spot for this cottage is very small. If I had left my vehicle there, no other resident behind me could have got out. I squatted on another space and fortunately they were away for the weekend. The main bedroom suffers from considerable rising damp. When we arrived, you could tell the damp in the room and clothes. We had to leave the window open as much as possible and were lucky that it was very warm and dry.The bathroom is fine with a good shower. The kitchen is oddly shaped but functional. Unless the damp is sorted you should avoid outside the high summer."
