Boutique holiday cottages in Lake Windermere

Amazing Autumn/Winter Cottage Getaways

Brisk winter walks, a mulled wine by a roaring fire, sumptuous spa treatments… Each of our three cottages can sleep up to 8 (maximum 6 adults). 

We also have the special 'Love Nest' which is custom-built for 2 people to enjoy.

Over the festive period, all our nests will be a minimum of a 3-night stay. This will be from the 18th December until the 2nd January.

A (luxury) home away from home...

After a day exploring the beautiful countryside, there's nothing quite like kicking off your walking boots and cosying up on the sofa with a glass of wine and a board game.

Our contemporary, craftsman built, luxury holiday cottages are located within the grounds of the hotel. We have acres of space for you to explore with plenty of scenic walks right on our doorstep. And all the amenities of our hotel at your fingertips. Book a table for lunch or dinner and let us take care of the cooking and washing-up! Or better still, we can even deliver room service straight to your cottage.

Each cottage (or nests as we like to call them!) is a ‘New England’ inspired Instagram delight. Fresh and airy, log burners, alfresco fireplaces and Egyptian cotton sheets. Luxury bathrooms and hardwood kitchens. Not to mention the views! 

All cottages have central heating and fully equipped kitchen with range cookers, fridge freezers, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryers, iron & ironing boards. There is also a supply of tea towels, oven gloves and a full log basket.
