“Lovely cosy cottage at the heart of Windermere”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed in the cottage for 5 days in May 2016. We must say that we had a very pleasant stay in the cottage.

(i) Location
The cottage is located in College Road, which is only 5-8 mins walk from the Windermere train station. The location is just great for all of us who are carrying bulky luggages. It is close to the town centre and very convenient for refilling daily necessities. Though close to town centre, the surrounding is quiet and ensures good sleep.

(ii) Facilities
The house has got pretty much everything we need. Cooking utensils, cutlery, toaster, seasoning, washing machines, DVDs and maps etc. Most importantly, wifi is available with pretty good connections.

(iii) Help/ emergency
We must say that Jane is a great owner who responded quickly to enquiries and was always ready to offer help whenever necessary. We texted her shortly after we have arrived at the cottage and she replied within a few mins and offered help to us promptly.

(iv) Suggested routes
Here are some of our suggested routes/ scheduled:
- A 30 min walk southward to the lakeside/ pier (Bowness on Windermere)
- A 30-40min walk uphill to the summit of Orrest Head. It has got one of the best views of the lake district. The entrance to the public pathway is just opposite to the tourist information centre (Just ask the staff there and they will be glad to guide your way)
- Take a bus to Ambleside. A 2hr walk from Ambleside to Grasmere (through the Rydal Hall and Dove Cottage)
- A boat trip for ~1-1.5hrs

Overall speaking, the cottage is definitely worth the cost. Great location with lovely environment. Highly recommended

“The best getaway!!”
Reviewed 18 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Me and my boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed Red Bank. It was easy to find in the best location (close to good shops and the station). The place had everything we needed and was perfect for a couple of nights. There were some beautiful walks in the area and a short walk down to the lake. Definitely want to go again!!!!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 19 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in this beautiful apartment for 3 nights and didn't want to leave! We felt so at home there from the moment we arrived. Location is perfect and the apartment had everything we needed including hand wash, washing up liquid and condiments. We hope to book again soon.

“location brilliant so was the place”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I really enjoyed my stay, it was literally minutes away from the station. The flat/appartment was spotless. You couldnt ask for anything more and so relaxing. My only problem was getting the key as I had trouble with my train journey so did not arrive until after 5pm and it was dark with no lights..good job I had a torch on my phone !! Thank you x x x
