Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Lovely modern property close to Windermere town centre.Very clean and well furnished. Set away from main road so hardly any traffic noise. Excellent for a quiet, romantic break. Feb 2012.
  2. Very comfortable, cosy, clean cottage. Enjoyed our short break away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. Very relaxing. Oct 2011.
  3. Location brilliant right in heart of Windermere. Accommodation excellent and being able to take our little dog along was a definite plus. June 2011.
  4. The main feature of this property is the location. It is no more than 10 minutes walk from all amenities - bus and rail station, very large well stocked supermarket, a smaller but good Co-op supermarket and excellent smaller local shops. There are several good local cafe/restaurants nearby and a pub serving food just over the road. It is also less than 2 miles from the lake. The house itself is very comfortable and a nice touch was the tea/coffee tray to use on arrival. May 2011.
  5. It was just the location we were after and ideal as it was dog friendly. July 2011.
  6. Fantastic location for those who like walking and being "far from the madding crowd". Beautifully kept grounds and every home comfort provided, making it a welcome retreat to return to at the end of a day’s walking. May 2011.
  7. Caxton Cottage was EXCEPTIONALLY clean!!! the fridge & kitchen utensills were spotless. March 2011.
  8. Great location near to Windermere high street and its shops etc but far enough away not to be aware it was there. We could walk in less then 5 minutes to the shops and restaurants. Cottage had all the facilities you could ask for and location was easy to find. Easy walk down the hill to Bowness and easy access to the main roads in and out of the village if you wanted to drive around the lakes. Cleanliness and decoration was great and will happily use this cottage again and recommend to family and friends. Feb 2011.
  9. Excellent size, good central location. Very comfortable and clean. Excellently provisioned. Beds were comfortable as were the chairs and sofas. Feb 2011.
  10. A lovely property, well-maintained and very comfortable. The cottage was also in the perfect position within easy walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants. Jan 2011.
  11. Very clean - lovely property in a great location - everything needed to hand - home from home. Oct 2010.
  12. The accommodation was very clean and welcoming, it was the ideal location for our needs,dog walks and sight seeing round windermere. There was a pub across the road where the food was very good and they made us feel welcome. Oct 2010.
  13. Very well located for amenities and walking. Oct 2010.
  14. The property lived up to the description and photographs from the web site. A very welcoming property with all the facilities we could have wished for. All in all this was a little home from home. Sept 2010.
  15. Good location, clean and tidy, good facilities. Sept 2010.
  16. The cottage was supplied with everything that we required for our stay. It was very nice to see that tea, coffee, milk and cleaning materials were supplied, by the owner, for our use. March 2010.
  17. Fantastic location and immaculate. Some places that let you take dogs tend to have a doggy smell/bit tatty. This cottage was not at all like that, everything you needed and very clean. Feb 2010.
  18. Good location, deep bath (but didn’t get chance to use it properly). Feb 2010.
  19. Excellent location, very quite and yet close to town, first look and you smile, every room well furnished. We were planning to eat out but kitchen facilities changed our minds. Nov 2009.
  20. We had everything we needed, comfortable, but could do with a splash of paint, maybe change curtains to look a bit more together, saying that would go again, enjoyed our stay at the cottage, very good location. Oct 2009.
