This was one of the best presented properties we have hired for some time and exactly matched the details on the website. The owners have taken note of previous comments about the kettle, toaster and cooking utensils and replaced them all.
The slope does get quite steep at the top so it pays to follow the advice given in the arrival instructions and park just beyond the one and only house on the drive.
The owners do not advertise having WiFi because they have doubts about it's speed and reliability but we found it worked perfectly in the week we spent there even if somewhat slower than we enjoy at home. Bob gave us helpful tips (like a footpath into Bowness) but did not speak unless we initiated the discussion.
This cottage is quite private but easy walking distance to Windermere. We really enjoyed our 3 night stay and would stay again if we visited the area. My only comment would be the lack of kitchen utensils and the China needs to be updated. However it is a lovely cosy cottage.
Very well located near to windermere and a nice walk down to the lake, stayed here before everything great only thing I will say is the kitchen equipment needs a bit of an upgrade, pots and pans utensils etc but that's all, definitely stay again, thanks Bob
Stayed for 3 nights in this lovely cottage ideal for 2 people. Good position within walking distance to centre of windermere and we also walked down to the lake.
Great value for money paid.
Birthwaite Cottage is in a nice location, close to shops and the Lake. It was nice, clean and cosy. Host was friendly.
