    “There was nothing wrong with the cottage itself, the location was great, decor was lovely, everything you can think of provided, the welcome basket was a nice touch.”

    The only thing that spoilt it a bit was the fact there are no curtains or blackout blinds in the bedrooms, which meant you were woken up at the crack of dawn, more so in the front bedroom. We’re not the first to comment on this, it has been mentioned in previous reviews and unfortunately the reason we wouldn’t come again.

The property

Perfectly positioned for a holiday full of outdoor adventure, the terraced cottage of Little Herdwick is ideal for a group of four to explore all of the excitement that Cumbria has to offer. Found at the centre of the action of Windermere within the Lake District National Park, this desirable location is perfect for a getaway full of fun. Be greeted into the homely abode by a captivating open-plan living/dining area, with a woodburning stove taking centre stage in the room providing an extra sense of comfort in the cooler months. Take a seat within one of the stylish sofas in the sitting area and flick on the television for a film night, or sit around the dining table together for an evening of board games, as well as this making a great spot for more formal dining occasions. Following through to the rear of the property will bring you to the kitchen, where you can find all of the essentials to assist you in your culinary requirements, as well as this room being a fantastically contemporary-styled spot for the chef of the group to enjoy. On the first floor are two equally delightful bedrooms, serviced by a shared, gleaming shower room, this floor is perfect for the whole group to catch up on their rest after a day of adventure. Enjoy some time on the decking in the mornings before heading out to explore the wonder of the town, a great spot for your morning coffee. Windermere is home to all of the simplicities of amenities, shops and eateries you could wish for, as well as hosting a golf course, a wondrous lake with various watersporting opportunities and stunning surrounding views. Explore the lands by foot or bike, or even climb up the encompassing peaks if you're feeling adventurous. In easy reach of Ambleside, Kendal and Keswick, Little Herdwick is a wondrous base for a retreat to Cumbria.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.
