  • “Disappointed that we were not informed before arrival that the shower was awaiting repair.”

    This did cause some inconvenience to all of us, due to health conditions.

    This did cause some inconvenience to all of us, due to health conditions. My husband also found a used cotton bud under the bed in the double room.

    - Mrs Beaton, August 2021

    Thank you for taking the time to feedback after your recent stay at Tizzie Whizzie. We are glad to hear you had a lovely stay. I understand the owner reached out to you regarding the shower prior to your stay and you had responded with the following 'Hi Jenny & Peter. Arrived safely. The cottage is lovely. No need to apologise about the shower, these things happen. It won't spoil our holiday. Thank you'. We are sorry that you have since felt different. Kind Regards Property Owner


The property

Arrive at this traditional Lake District cottage, right at the heart of Windermere village, and you'll be surprised by the sophistication within. Spread over three floors, Tizzie Whizie Cottage is decadent yet relaxed; finished with natural colours, plumped up with leather furnishings and oozing Lakeland cottage charm. Two cottage bedrooms, each with a bathroom facility and one complete with roll top bath, perfect for a long soak after a day on the fells - this central cottage serves as a romantic retreat and its intriguing name is allegedly given originally by local Windermere boatmen to a waterside legend which was seen to reside on Belle Isle. This is a vibrant, convenient bolt hole, surrounded by sophisticated village facilities and well-placed for exploring our Lake District National Park. Accommodation in detail Permit parking is available outside the cottage and on neighbouring streets. Entrance hallway leading into the light and cosy lounge which has an opening into the dining kitchen. This kitchen has everything you need and with a door to the patio, ideal for summer evenings. Upstairs to the two cottage bedrooms, one double and one twin and on this level is the bathroom with roll top bath and shower attachment and on the lower ground level is the shower room. Please note - the property has WiFi but the connection can be intermittent. Location Only a few miles from Lake Windermere itself, Windermere village is a charming and vibrant village at the heart of the Lakes. Only a short drive from the M6, and with good train links from Oxenholme, couples and a family can easily meet up here and will find the village a fantastic Lake District self-catering base for trips throughout the National Park. The friendly village centre is a delightful community to settle into - tasty cafes, local shops, excellent Booths supermarket, traditional Lakeland pubs and plenty of picturesque Lake District walks from your door. You must walk up Orrest Head during your stay; the views over Lake Windermere are spectacular.Walk or drive a few miles from your Windermere self-catering apartment, just down the road to Bowness, and you'll find even more to entertain - a wider range of restaurants, shops, pubs and trendy bars, plus the boating activity of Windermere lake shore. Why not take a cruise on the lake to Ambleside or Lakeside?
