    About this property

    A superb Victorian House finished to an exceptionally high standard and enjoying an ideal location down a quiet street.
    Within walking distance of all Windermere’s facilities. Tucked away on a quiet road, S18744 is a five star, 5 bedroomed, quirky Victorian house situated between the villages of Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere. Within walking distance of train station, lake, marina, cinemas, theatre, restaurants, supermarkets, local shops and incredible fells - all minutes away. S18744 is an ideal base for extended families or groups. A second twin bedroom with wet room on the ground floor is helpful for those with limited mobility. The open plan kitchen/dining room has crafted shaker style units with Belfast sink and robust granite worktop, and a desk with imac computer. A four oven gas Aga beneath oak beams rescued from an old chemist shop, and slate recycled from Grasmere bus station - is perfect for drying out a soggy kit! A library of books, maps, family games and films for little ones make this a wonderful place. The house is stylishly decorated with handmade wide white shutters. Oil paintings, teardrop chandeliers, Minton tiled floor, rugs and throws on comfy sofas fuse old and new in a tasteful way. Linen curtains over French doors lead from the ’grown ups’ dining room with woodburner to a walled gravelled courtyard - perfect for those balmy summer evenings, whilst the little pocket garden is lovely for a quiet moment. There’s even a Christmas box full of decorations for a festive stay- including Christmas tree if needed. All 4 upstairs bedrooms have luxurious bath or shower rooms and are provided with fluffy white towels so don’t be tempted to bring your own. Shops, restaurants and pub 1/4 mile.

    "Absolutely great family break in a lovely property with everything we required in an ideal location"
    Estherh ‐ 2 Oct 2018
    "We felt this was a reasonable priced cottage, therefore the small things such as the uncomfortable living room, the old fashioned bedding in the downstairs bedroom and the run down en-suites upstairs seem acceptable. The rest of the cottage was amazing and the people who spoke to us were so friendly! The welcome basket was a nice touch, the huge arga was beautiful! The hallway was probably the prettiest part of the house. Not much sun in the courtyard but we weren’t too fussed anyway. Overall for a group of girls we found the cottage to be great, the location helped a lot! Bang in the middle of Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere so best of both worlds! I have a 5 year old and wouldn’t take her to this cottage due to the banister upstairs being dangerously low for small children. Such a shame as I would have definitely returned with my family if this wasn’t the case. Thanks for having us."

    "S18744 is a superb holiday house. We particularly appreciated the welcome pack for which thank-you. In terms of equipment we would have found a few more glasses (nothing special just basic would suffice) and a kitchen mixer/food processor useful. We had planned to make meringues and the lack of an electric mixer was sorely missed!"

    "As a family retreat for 8 people, as the organiser - I wanted to find somewhere away from the crowds but still with enough going on to keep 8 people entertained! S18744 was absolutely spot on; the house was amazing - catering for our every need. The location absolutely perfect - we went shopping, to the bars and also walking, whilst giving us all the chance to chill in the front room with board games and drinks!I couldnt have asked for anything more and each family member said exactly the same! We went in February but the same weekend we were already talking about renting it again in the summer!! Excellent service from start to finish!"

    "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"
