    “We enjoyed a lovely warm and welcoming holiday at Lilac cottage which was very well furnished and decorated making a very comfortable stay within the national park.”

    We found the central position very helpful as it allowed us the opportunity to walk out and be in the centre of Windermere within a couple of minutes. The choice of restaurants locally is very good and all other amenities are easily at hand. ...

    We found the central position very helpful as it allowed us the opportunity to walk out and be in the centre of Windermere within a couple of minutes. The choice of restaurants locally is very good and all other amenities are easily at hand. The accommodation was very well equipped and in excellent condition. Sadly we have learnt that for some reason, although there are 3 bedrooms, sleeping 6, the property will only be available for 4 people in the future… we would have immediately booked to come back with extended family! We had a problem with unlocking the back door but we are sure this will be rectified for future guests. Thank you for a great stay in our favourite part of the world.
