    “Fantastic stay at Lily Cottage, it had everything we needed.”

    We were concerned that parking could be an issue, but we never once (7 night stay) were unable to park outside the front door or at least close to it. The cottage could have been a bit cleaner upon our arrival, we had to spend some time cleaning. Other than that, great stay.

Located on a quiet side street close to the centre of Windermere village, just a few minutes' walk from a great selection of shops, bars and eateries, Lily Cottage is a beautiful cottage that has been finished in a contemporary manner to offer quality accommodation in a convenient location. Lake Windermere is an easy ten-minute walk from the cottage and there is a fantastic range of walks from the village which allows visitors to abandon their car for a week and to relax and enjoy the Lake District right from the doorstep. Lily Cottage has been fully refurbished by the owners who have paid great attention to detail to create an excellent property that has been finished to the highest standard. The cottage is presented with an open plan lounge/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen, accompanied by a useful utility room and shower room. On the first floor are two of the three bedrooms, a king-size bedroom and a double bedroom and accompanied by a smart family shower room with large shower cubicle. On the second floor, the final bedroom is a pretty double room. This great quality cottage is ideal for family or friends to relax and enjoy a great holiday whatever the time of year. == Accommodation in detail The front door opens to a high Victorian hallway with plenty of hooks for coats and jackets which leads to a welcoming lounge/dining room with comfortable sofas arranged around a cosy log burning stove and in the corner a Smart TV with Sky.
