    “We have just retuned back from a weeks stay at the Burrow and had a fantastic stay.”

    The Burrow was perfect for us, was absolutely spotless, welcoming and had a very homely feel. Beds where very comfortable which we definitely needed after some long days walking. The upstairs shower has amazing power!! All in all would definitely recommend the burrow and will be returning ourselves too!

Set close to the centre of Windermere, rests The Burrow, a characterful three-storey cottage, ideal for a group of friends or a family to explore the stunning scenery of the Lake District. On entering the property, three steps lead you into the sitting room, where the wood burning-effect gas fire gently warms the room while you cosy up on the sofas to watch the Smart TV. Moving through the property to the lower-ground-floor, the kitchen offers all the necessities for rustling up some delectable meals throughout your stay, featuring a gas hob and electric oven, as well as a microwave and a handy dishwasher. Continuing on this floor, happen upon the dining room which hosts plenty of dining seating where you can catch up on the day’s events over your evening meal before stepping through to the delightful conservatory, to unwind with a glass of wine on the rattan furniture after a long day of exploring the Lakes. Moving through the property and up to the ground-floor the first of three delicately decorated bedrooms welcomes you with its single bed and a view out over the garden and neighbouring character cottages. Completing the ground-floor and climbing the stairs to the first-floor, where a bright and airy twin invites you to rest while benefitting from a convenient en-suite shower room, with a walk-in shower, basin and WC. The last bedroom is a spacious king-size with storage for your belongings and a plush bed for you to retire to as the evening draws to a close. Back onto the ground floor, there is a family bathroom for the rest of the group to freshen up in between activities which houses a bath, shower over, basin and WC.
