    About this property

    A beautifully presented ground floor apartment with private parking just a short walk from the centre of Windermere.
    Wh’ista is an old Cumbrian term meaning ‘who are you?’. Allow me to make the introductions – welcome to a holiday home bursting with personality and individuality. In a convenient location for wandering into the town and making the most of the amenities on your doorstep, Wh’ista offers guests accommodation that is contemporary, stylish and fun! An open plan living area offers a good space to relax in at the end of a busy day. Individual pieces of artwork brighten the walls and give a hint to the personality, and craft skills, of the owners of this delightful holiday home.
    Tucked in the corner of College Gate, Wh’ista will appeal to couples, friends and families who will enjoy the benefit of being able to leave the car parked up and get out and about on foot. Windermere offers a fabulous mix of independent retailers, cafés, pubs and restaurants. Wander down the hill towards Bowness-on-Windermere for a taste of another popular Lakeland town. Full of character, Bowness-on-Windermere sits right by the lake with steamers and boat rides to enjoy, and the car ferry can take you across to the western hills, Coniston and Grisedale. Following a busy day exploring this picturesque area, guests will find the enclosed courtyard ideal for an aperitif or two! At the end of your stay it will no doubt be a reluctant ’ars garn yam’ (I’m going home)! Shop, pub and restaurant 200 yards.

    "Great central location for the little village, everything on your doorstep, the place apartment was great with everything to make you feel at home, fantastic value for money, i would return here again."

    "Very clean, well presented and well equipped flat.Very convenient location with supermarket, shops and restaurants a very short walk away. Also very quick to get to the main road to explore the wider area. Some good walks available directly from the flat too.Parking space directly outside the flat is very useful. It is slightly awkward to get in to, but not a big deal and you soon get used to it."

    "Had a lovely stay at Wh'ista and the book of instructions was one of the most clear and helpful ones we've come across :-). The beds were very comfortable and everything was very clean. The guidebooks available were extremely handy and we did several of the 10 top walks around the lakes. The location was great for shops and getting about in general, the only thing missing were some views but we got plenty of those when we were out and about. It was generally nice and quiet indoors although you can hear the traffic at times at the back. Although we didn't watch or play any, there were plenty of DVDs and board games in the cupboard. The kitchen had just about everything we needed."

    "Apartment was in an ideal location situated centrally in the town. The apartment is modern & bright however the cleanliness could have been better: upon arrival there was a thick layer of dust on the alarm clock in the double room: looked liked it hadn’t been dusted in weeks. Also corners in all rooms had not been cleaned. There was mould on some of the bath sealant: difficult to avoid this as there is no window in the bathroom only a small fan. These points may be down to the management company of the property. Finally locking the front door is almost impossible unless you’ve someone in your party who is exceptionally strong: most females & older people would not be able to lock the door."

    "Great location right in the centre of Windermere. Although there is allocated parking it's really only suitable for a small car and I parked on the street instead when space was available."

    "Great little apartment, well equipped in great location for walks, pubs, food etc.Information in 'book of stuff' created by owner, very informative. As we were there during the week of 'the beast from the east', it was very cold outside which froze the condenser pipe on the boiler, which left us without hot water. However, the maintenance team responded quickly and, although we still didn't get hot water and they offered to relocate us, we decided to stay put. There's an electric shower and a kettle which provided us with enough hot water for our needs. The heating is economy 7 , so no problems there. Despite the weather we went out walking so were not in the apartment during the day much anyway. Overall a great break and will definitely recommend to anyone."

    "Really lovely apartment. In a perfect location for eating out without having to use the car in the evening. All restaurants in walking distance. The apartment was quirky and very well maintained with everything you could want or need. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to use it as a base for visiting the Lakes."

    "Fab apartment ! Beautiful furniture great location"
