    Located in a sought after area below Orrest Head, The Croft was formerly the billiard room of Oaklands, a Victorian gentlemen’s residence, which sits elevated above Windermere. Dating back to the mid 19th-century, this unique stone built, linked-detached cottage now offers contemporary and comfortable holiday accommodation in a prime Lake District location. The cottage is thoughtfully laid out over two floors and has a splendid extension providing a spacious dining/kitchen which has bi-folding doors opening onto the garden. The ground floor also offers a bright and welcoming living room with wood burner, as well as a double bedroom and family bathroom with roll top bath. There is also a utility room which has direct access to the outside and can therefore be used for bikes. On the first floor are two further bedrooms and a shower room. Outside is an enclosed lawned garden with patio area and parking for two cars, something which is a real bonus in Windermere.
    The town of Windermere with its range of shops, restaurants and supermarkets is within ½ mile, so The Croft is perfect for guests who like to have everything on their doorstep. Bowness-on-Windermere, 1½ miles, also offers a great selection of bars, shops, cafés and restaurants, as well as being home to the World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. From here you can take a traditional steamer or boat trip across Lake Windermere. Other popular places to visit within easy reach include the Lakeland Motor Museum and Lakes Aquarium both 10 miles away, the Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway, 11 miles, Sizergh Castle, 12 miles, Levens Hall, 15 miles and the South Lakes Safari Zoo just 22 miles away. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    "Lovely property. Immaculate inside and out. 10mins walk from Windermere or 2 mins drive. Rooms upstairs lack head height but not too much of an issue as they are only bedrooms and bathroom. We’d happily go back."

    "Excellent facility,only downside is the dark walk to and from the road."
    Paul ‐ 15 Aug 2019
    "Lovely house, small but very newly decorated and full of amenities. Great location just outside Windermere. No lake views but lovely forest and walks all around. Only issues were hot bedrooms with no fans (no wind all week either!), and the shower door leaks water onto the floor."
    Laura ‐ 11 Jul 2019
    "Lovely cottage in a lovely quiet location. Very well placed to easily get into the centre of Windermere and a great base to explore the rest of the Lakes. The cottage is beautifully presented and very well equipped with a lovely garden for my 2yr old to run around in.Although it was very clean for our arrival, I scored it slightly less for cleanliness as there were a few cobwebs around the house that could’ve easily been cleaned.I would definitely choose this cottage again should I be in the area!"

    "It exceeded expectations. The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms was perfect for our 3 generations. We liked the modern features e.g. night sensor light on the landing and underfloor heating.The step between the kitchen and dining areas was a hazard when walking between the areas, or for dining chairs near the edge. Instructions for the control of the central heating would have been useful."

    "The Croft was a brilliant base for our multigenerational family. It was smarter, plusher and more spacious than the photos can show. But also very practical. I didn't need to worry my boys (age 5 and 2.5) might ruin the place. There was enough room on sofas and at the dinner table for the 6 of us and our boys enjoyed playing in the garden at the front. The location was great too - close enough my husband and I could walk into Windermere for dinner - and secluded enough to feel we were away from it all. We are likely to return and I would highly recommend."

    "Super cottage and location"
    Susan ‐ 2 Jan 2019
    "Stayed here for a few days over Christmas. The cottage had everything we could possibly want - including a Christmas tree."
    Victoria ‐ 21 Oct 2018
    "Brilliant holiday. Everything we needed ?"
