    “I am waiting for onto respond to my complaint re the dishwasher and TVs not working”

    - Sonia, April 2024

    Thank you for your comment, the TV does buffer sometimes as its a low signal area and terrestrial channels can be impacted by the weather. All other Smart channels accessed via the internet are completely unaffected. I can see maintenance attended during your stay and drained the dishwasher. - The owner relations team Property Owner

The property

This magnificent three-bedroom dwelling, Chestnuts Cottage, is located in the sought-after town of Windermere in the Cumbrian countryside. The cottage comfortably welcomes five adults or a family of six with one well-behaved small to medium sized pooch. It has a desirable location within the Lake District National Park and is a short stroll from Lake Windermere. It also benefits from off street parking, a rarity in this busy town, a contemporary interior, an elevated patio, and three well-appointed en-suite bedrooms, making it ideal for a family staycation. Enjoy the fully equipped kitchen/diner where you may cook and eat meals together as a group and reminisce about the days adventures or alternatively utilise the beautifully appointed downstairs patio for an alfresco dining experience. Travel upstairs to the cosy sitting area with plush sofas and a soothing virtual flame electric fireplace. Open the patio doors on warm days and evenings to enjoy a glass of wine on the private elevated terrace with mood lighting, colourful flowerbeds and planters surrounding it. As the night progresses, discover three roomy bedrooms, including a ground-floor king-size, a double, and a bunk room, all furnished with storage, TVs, and en-suite facilities. Be sure to get some well-deserved rest before another day of lakeside fun. Get ready with convenience in mind, before visiting Windermere and all of its lovely attractions; you couldn’t ask for a better location ! Beresford's Restaurant & Pub and Hooked are firm favourites, and a nearby convenience store is a great place to pick up necessities.
