“A fantastic holiday retreat!”

Me and my girlfriend stayed at Birthwaite Cottage over the Jubilee weekend. What a fantastic cottage it is-very close to Windermere (a leisurely 10 minute walk) and also Bowness, for a boat trip on Lake Windermere. The cottage itself is as good as the location-very cosy, quiet and kept immaculately clean.
The owner was extremely helpful with all the questions we had prior and during our stay too, as I had never been to the Lake District before. We had a great stay and I would recomend Birthwaite cottage to anyone looking to stay near Windermere and explore the Lake District.

“Well Appointed 'Bolt Hole'”
Reviewed 14 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

Stayed for a week in October. This is a very well appointed cosy cottage. I imagine recently refurbished to a very high standard. Fresh flowers when we arrived gives you the idea that the owners really care.
You do have to be a little bit of a mountain goat and the sump on the car could take a bit of a bashing on the drive so take care.
Easy stroll into Windermere and down to the lakeside.
One tip bring a torch with you as Birhwaite Road has no street lights and its very dark in October!
Would recommend highly
