    “A lovely cottage in a great location although being in the centre of the town it was quite noisy some nights.”

    It was well equipped with everything we needed, and clean on arrival. The spiral staircase to the top floor is narrow and wobbly and I don’t think this is emphasised enough in the listing.. not great for elderly/ young children etc.

The property

Old Village House is situated in the Lake District National Park in the renowned town of Windermere. This three-story cottage that is beautifully renovated and furnished accommodates up to six guests in three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. The property also features off-street parking, a rarity in this busy town, making it ideal for three couples or families seeking a Lake District getaway. Enter your home-away-from-home and unwind in the spacious living room while the television plays and the woodburning stove crackles, creating a welcoming environment; allow the designated chef to locate the kitchen, which is equipped with a variety of appliances to prepare delicious meals for the entire group. These can then be savoured in the dining room, where you can reminisce about the day's adventures, a shower room completes this floor. Enjoy a glass of wine in the enclosed, private courtyard before retiring to one of the three bedrooms; the first floor has 2 kings with ample storage, and the second floor has another king with sloping ceilings. Be sure to get some well-deserved rest before another day of lakeside fun. Old Village House is located in the heart of Windermere, within walking distance of all that the village has to offer - the train station, Booths supermarket, other delightful shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants - you couldn't ask for a better location! Just down the road is the smallest pub in the Lake District, the Pie and Pint, as well as the Crafty Bar, voted the best pub in England by the AA. Due to the abundance of watersports available on Lake Windermere and the ample supply of nearby walking and hiking trails, outdoor enthusiasts will feel at home in the town. Ambleside, a charming town with an abundance of attractions, is also nearby; The Stock Ghyll Force waterfall and Rydal Cave, one of the longest caves in England, are must-sees. Ambleside is also home to the well-preserved Ambleside Roman Fort, which provides a fascinating glimpse into the region's past. Or visit Kendal, a charming market town that is home to the Kendal Museum, the Quaker Tapestry Museum, and the Lakeland Museum, among others. In addition, there are numerous restaurants and bars, such as the Brewery Arts and the Ye Olde Fleece Inn. Choose Old Village House as your next Lake District base of operations.
