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.

Bannerrigg Ref: CC127195
Bannerrigg (’sister property’ to Alice Howe and Boston House) a Grade II listed property, was designed by Augustus (AWN) Pugin (1812 - 1852), arguably the greatest British architect, designer and writer of the 19th Century whose name is synonymous with the interior of The House of Lords and the Palace of Westminster.  The houses on the terrace were designed as holiday homes for the railway executives each one having unique character.
The historic nature of this spacious property is reflected in the style and quality of the decor, furnishings and accessories.  If you are looking for a big house in the Lake District for a family holiday or short break with a group of friends, Bannerrigg is the ideal choice.
During the 2008 winter period Bannerrigg has had quite a makeover, which has resulted in the house being uprated by Visit Britian from 3 to 4 star status. Bedroom one has been redecorated and had a new ensuite installed. The family bathroom has had new natural stone flooring and most of the property has been decorated. Many of the fixtures and fittings have also been changed. Every bedroom also now has an ipod dock/radio alarm clock.
Outside there’s a new large slate patio. An 8 seat hot tub has been installed in it’s own building in the garden and the parking area has been extended to fit 5 cars ( in fact if you are prepared to park each other in, there’s room for 7 cars).
Bannerrigg has 5 bedrooms, one being a family room with two daybeds and a double, another large room has 4 single beds.  The house is an ideal base for the larger party and with the train and bus station literally around the corner, it’s easily accessible for those members of your group that are travelling from far and wide. 
This property can be booked together with Alice Howe (CC127187) and Boston House (CC127199), White Moss (CC127244) and Number One (CC127243) to accommodate up to 66 people in 30 bedrooms!
