    “The cottage was very well presented, very modern and had everything required for a lovely stay.”

    We found it very quiet and relaxing with lovely view of the lake. We also enjoyed the welcoming gifts. We would happily stay again.

The property

This fabulous single-storey, mid-terraced cottage, which bears the name of one of Beatrix Potter's lesser-known books, is located in an elevated setting within the grounds of the former Priory Hotel and is just a short stroll from Windermere town's numerous bars and eateries. Ginger & Pickles is the ideal starting point for a couple looking to explore this stunning location because it offers lake views, private parking, shared grounds, and exclusive lake access for residents. In the modern, open-plan living room, which includes a fully-equipped kitchen, a dining table for two with views of the lake, and a comfortable lounge area where you can unwind in front of the smart TV after a long day, feel at home. As the sun sets over Windermere, you can unwind with a glass of cold wine at the bistro table in front of the cottage. When it's time to sleep, you'll find a stylish, king-sized bedroom with storage, a private bathroom with a shower, and a window through which, if you're lucky, you might be able to see a roe deer in the nearby bushes. A private track leads you to the beach area and jetty from the cottage. If you have a paddleboard or canoe that is light enough to carry the 400 metres to the lakefront, you may sit here and watch the swans and steamers pass by or you can get in the water. There are numerous excellent treks that can be taken directly from the cottage door; Orrest Head stands out for its breathtaking views of the lake and adjacent fells. The Langdale Pikes, Helm Crag, the Fairfield Horseshoe, and Scafell Pike are just a few of the iconic Lakeland fell hikes that are conveniently accessible by vehicle for avid hikers. The region is home to a number of well-known attractions such Lake Cruises, The World of Beatrix Potter, Dove Cottage (William Wordsworth's Lakeland residence), and other National Trust buildings like Wray Castle, Townend, and Hill Top. If you're looking for a getaway for two or a base for action and adventure, Ginger & Pickles won't let you down.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
