Find cottages in WindermereVisit Windermere

At the heart of the National Park, Windermere has a vibrant atmosphere close to England's largest lake and surrounded by beautiful countryside.

The small town of Windermere is positioned beside the banks of (lake) Windermere and along with its neighbouring town of Bowness-on-Windermere form two of the most popular holiday destinations in the Lake District.

Its central position makes it the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful Lake District National Park and offers easy access to the water where you can take one of the famous steamers or launches that regularly depart and arrive throughout the day; it's a great way to fully appreciate the majesty of the area with stunning views of the mountainous landscape all around.

In town there is a bustling atmosphere where you'll find a good selection of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and cosy pubs. There also plenty of excellent visitor attractions close by such as the Lakeland Motor Museum, Lake District Visitor Centre or Wray Castle, or why not visit the Steamboat Museum itself and learn about the fascinating history of these iconic craft.

Young and old alike will enjoy a visit to the World of Beatrix Potter where her famous animal characters and all of her stories are brought to life; cross the lake to visit Hill Top, the author's own home, now lovingly restored as in tribute to her life and work.

Situated a short distance to the east is the pretty village of Staveley, positioned between the River Kent and Gowan; and handily placed for both the Lakes hot spots and the beautiful Kent Valley.

See for yourself why Windermere is the ideal Lake District destination and search for Windermere Holiday Cottages.

Warner Lea Ref: 28688

This old world, terraced character holiday cottage handsomely nestles in the heart of a conservation area leading towards Biskey Howe, yet stands only a stone’s throw away from the village of Bowness. The property has been lovingly decorated and furnished with a warming woodburner in the living room to enjoy after a long day exploring. Internal features include quality oak style and carpeted floors, lavish bedrooms, beautiful bathroom, oak designer kitchen, and much more. Bowness-on-Windermere is one of the most beautiful natural areas in the UK, and is largely seen as the jewel in the crown of the Lake District. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy golf, walking, hiking, climbing, water-skiing and sailing, or simply cruising down the lake on one of the authentic steam boats. The village of Windermere is just 1mile away, while Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere are all with easy reach. Or why not take the car ferry that still crosses the lake between Ferry Nab and Ferry House, and provides a convenient approach to the western side of the lake for access to the villages of Hawkshead and Sawrey. A Lakeland treasure in a peaceful part of the village, Warner Lea is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Shop, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

Within walking distance of all Windermere’s facilities

Within walking distance of train station, lake, marina, cinemas, theatre, restaurants, supermarkets, local shops and incredible fells - all minutes away. The Hollies 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.
