The Den is a unique space within the Lake District - a Scandinavian style BBQ cabin. A large BBQ pit in the centre to sit around provides a cosy relaxing evening space, and a place to cook! WiFi, Fridge, Microwave, Kettle & Nespresso. Bedding provided, and a heated blanket! 8 minutes by car to Windermere, 5 minutes to Kendal. Easy access to a bus stop and cycle lane. Dales Way very close by. A camping-type toilet and sink (hot & cold water) next to the cabin. Dogs welcome £5/night extra.
Set in 2/3rds of an acre of beautiful gardens with private countryside views. Off street private and secure parking is provided. Toilet is located next to The Den in a separate shed. The sink has running hot & cold drinking water. Please note there are not shower facilities, but the sink with running water is suitable for taking a daily wash.
We are about half way between Kendal and Windermere. The main cycle lane into the Lake District is directly across the road, as is the Dales Way walking path. The Den is in a semi-rural setting with views to the surrounding countryside. For clarity's sake, during busy rush hours there is some traffic noise from the road, but evenings and nights are typically quiet. Please note that we are not the Windermere Camping Site, despite the AirBnB map showing it close by!
  • Very nice experience! Very nice cosy place ♥️

  • Cool sparkley den for a romantic getaway :) Beautiful area and host was really helpful. It was early March so a bit chilly out but the BBQ warmed up the den and the toilet had a heater in so acted as a drying room for us. Great break! Thank you!

  • Very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay here. It made our trip to the Lakes that extra bit special. Thank you for the recommendations Yassmine for where to go we enjoyed everything that you suggested. The room and facilities were fantastic. We were also very pleasantly surprised to meet the Shetland Ponies and Gusto! I highly recommend!

  • Great place.

    Caity2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Den is a beautiful made space and holds the most relaxing atmosphere. Matt and Yassmine have thought of everything, providing guests with charcoal, WiFi, tea and coffee, etc. They are also such friendly and responsive hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the den and would recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, quirky place (the bbq is an amazing feature). Thank you both!

  • Booked for Xmas present for my girlfriend and what a great choice I made. The hut was absolutely stunning from the moment we arrived. Location is also accessible from a number of viewpoints and amenities. The fire pit is a lovely touch where we made dinner. Shetland pony’s were a nice little surprise too. The hit was slightly cold, however to be expected in Feb. Highly recommend staying in this beautiful hut and we will be back!

    Joshua2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lot of fun, even in winter. Just be sure to bring enough coal if it's cold and rainy to use not only for the bbq but also to keep warm. The heated blanket is a great idea. The room was spotless and very well organised. Bbqing inside works amazing! We had some perfectly cooked steaks. The toilet (no shower) is outside of the cabin, in rainy/snowy weather it's less then ideal. But this is communicated in the ad so not a complaint, just a heads up for people checking this location out.

    Twan2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect space and lovely family thank you for a lovely weekend 😃 Woke up on r last day to snow and the two ponies waiting to say hi in the morning great addition

    Character cottage in the heart of Bowness. Walking distance from all amenities , yet set back in a private location behind trees. With parking and lovely garden this is the perfect place to explore the beautiful surroundings.
    FOXGLOVE COTTAGE IN WINDERMERE LAKE DISTRICT Foxglove Cottage lies in Bowness, one of the Lake Districts most popular villages, with its many shops, inns, cafes and restaurants leading down to the beautiful lake Windermere. Foxglove cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the outstanding natural beauty and to walk to local restaurants for a spot of dinner and maybe glass of wine or two. The end property of three traditional lakeland cottages, Foxglove Cottage is a short walk from Bowness village and bay and yet remains private, hidden behind trees and shrubs. A shared drive leads up to the cottages and Foxglove is on the far end with lovely private garden to the rear. The side entrance leads into the well equipped kitchen/dining room. A single step leads up to the oak beamed sitting room. The room has comfy sofa and arm chairs, and , of course , the obligatory log burning stove. A most comfortable and cosy place to relax after a long walk in the beautiful surrounding area. A narrow staircase leads to the upstairs floor, on the landing is the first bathroom with bath and overhead shower. A few more steps lead onto the main landing off which there are two bedrooms, one the master double, with en-suite whirlpool bath and overhead shower, the second a pretty twin bedroom. At the rear of the cottage there is a lovely private garden, surrounded by shrubs and trees. there is a dining area where you can perhaps have a barbecue and enjoy a glass of rose in the spring/summer. This is a perfect place to stay for either couples or a small family, where the amazing area of the Lake district can be easily explored and just a short walking distance you can pop out to wine and dine in the evening before returning to a cosy relaxing cottage. The Location The linked towns of Bowness and Windermere lie east of Lake Windermere, where Bowness is at the waters edge, with the town of Windermere set about a half mile away above the lake. Each is a busy community of shops, cafes, restaurants and attractions, serving both the local community and our visitors to the Lake District. Perhaps the biggest attraction is the bay at Bowness, a sweeping crescent of waterfront and adjoining parkland, where you can enjoy a walk by the shore or find a quite place to picnic. At the bay you will find the piers and the famous Windermere steamers, which offer boat trips up and down the ten - mile reach of the lake. Here you can also hire rowing boats and motor powered boats, which can be taken by the hour to explore the lake and it islands for yourself. Other popular attractions are the World of Beatrix Potter, the Windermere Steam Boat Museum and a little south of Bowness the Blackwell Arts and Crafts house, one of the most important surviving houses from the turn of the 20th century. The house is a superb example of the Arts and Crafts movement architecture, where it occupies a stunning position overlooking Windermere and is open to the public as a gallery for craft and applied arts. North of Windermere is Brockhole, the Lake District Visitor Center. Set on the lakeshores the main house is surrounded by beautiful gardens where you will find a huge adventure playground, café, shop and exhibitions along with a host of information about the National Park. For visual entertainment you have the Royalty Cinema in Windermere, and the Old Laundry Theatre in Bowness, staging a lively annual season of music, theatre, comedy and film. There are plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants, where for me the best is by far Jericho’s in Windermere. Owned and run by Jo and Chris Blaydes, the welcome is always warm, the setting perfect and the cuisine delicious. For a good country pub atmosphere there is the Queens Head at Troutbeck, about 2 miles from the main village the inn offers fine beers, good food and roaring fires in winter months. For the big walks and big landscapes you will have to travel a bit further into the park, however there is a good local walk up onto Orrest Head, which begins from Windermere, just opposite the railway station. Anecdotally it was the first ever walk for Alfred Wainwright where the view from the summit was said to have changed his life and set him on a lifetime of fell walking and the production of those much loved walking guides. Also quite local are the fells to the south of Bowness. Although not mountain high, they offer a magical rolling countryside rising above the lake with magnificent views. Travel a little further afield and you much to explore. South of the villages, at the foot of Windermere, is Newby Bridge and Lakeside where the steamers terminate. Here you will also find Fell Foot Park for boat hire, fishing and the National Trust Gardens. East lies kendal, the capital Town of South Lakeland. A host of good shopping, restaurants and a busy cultrural scene with the likes of the Abbot Hall Art Gallery and The Brewery Arts Center. At the northern head of the lake lies Ambleside, a popular town with cinema, pubs, restaurants and huge selection of outdoor and climbing gear shops. Once you past the head of the lake you are within easy rach of the big fells such as the Langdales, the forest of Grizedale and the other great lake in the south, Coniston Water.
    The outstanding natural beauty, beyond compare! Convenience of local village with it's selection of restaurants and shops.
  • Lovely traditional Lakeland cottage, super cute and brilliant location. Stayed here Friday to Sunday for my partners birthday weekend away. The cottage is very cute and cosy with lovey wooden beams and traditional decor. Kitchen has excellent amenities and the place is lovely and clean. The location is just perfect, tucked away behind trees yet a minute walk from the centre on Bowness. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.

    Sarah2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Bowness on Windermere , Cumbria, United Kingdom

    Fermain Cottage is a charming lakeland home that has been lovingly renovated over the years to a high standard. It is a three storey property on a peaceful road, just a very short walk from Ambleside town centre. With ample parking for two vehicles, it is a perfect base from which to explore everything the Lake District has to offer. A tranquil, cosy and memorable place to stay, for up to five people. We are a strictly dog-free cottage.
    The front door opens straight into a newly renovated and well equipped kitchen area. The oven, gas hob and microwave gives you plenty of cooking options. There is a fridge / freezer, kettle, Nespresso Coffee Machine and dishwasher. There are plenty of pots, pans, crockery, glassware and cooking utensils - everything you need for a self-catered holiday. Stone floors lead through to the living room where there is a dining table / chairs and two sofas. There is a wall mounted television and a wood burning stove which is lovely to sit by in the evenings (please bring your own logs). There are some books and games kept in the living room which you are welcome to use. The house is fully centrally heated throughout and the controls are on the first floor landing. The bathroom is a stunning focal point of the home. After a long walk in the hills you can take a soak in the claw-foot tub, or have an invigorating shower with our complimentary toiletries. There is also a double bedroom on the first floor and laundry facilities. The top floor houses a large second double bedroom and a smaller single bedroom. There are excellent views of the surrounding fells from the top floor. On prior request we can accommodate a sixth person on a pull-out bed in the single bedroom. It is a full size single mattress bed (see photos) and would probably be best suited for children. There is an additional charge of twenty pounds if you would like the sixth bed to be made up. Stair-gates and a travel cot can be assembled prior to your arrival, upon request. Being a traditional lakeland cottage, the staircases are quite narrow and steep, which may present a challenge to the elderly or those with mobility problems. Outside: The back door leads out from the living room to a small, peaceful garden with an area of grass and benches. There is a gravel driveway large enough for two cars. There is a large lockable shed in the garden. If you want to store bikes etc in there, I am happy to arrange for the key to be left for you. We are a strictly dog-free cottage.
    Ambleside is a bustling and lively village where you will find plenty of things to do. Many happy hours can be spent wandering around the town and its interesting shops (with plenty of stops for coffees and cakes!). Ambleside is one of the best places to shop for outdoor gear if you are into fell walking / outdoor activities. In the evenings there are a number of restaurants within walking distance from the cottage if you don't feel like cooking. Pop into one of the many cosy pubs for a drink. The Lake District is home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the UK - there is so much to explore! Turn right out of the cottage door on foot and there are a number of beautiful walks up the hill and onto the local fells, which are suitable for most people and children. Or take a short drive for some more challenging walks in the area - Helvellyn on a clear day offers unparalleled beauty from the top.
  • Fantastic location and a warm, welcoming cottage with everything you need.

    Chris2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve just got back from a stay with two toddlers and a baby and the cottage was perfect! The cottage had a baby gate, high chair and travel cot all ready and waiting for us. It’s in a great location so close to walk into Ambleside centre and some fantastic views from the bedrooms on the top floor. Gareth was really responsive to my messages, and check in/out was so simple. The cottage was spotlessly clean and felt so homely and cosy, we’ll definitely be returning here for more Lake District adventures!

  • Excellent accomodation, close to Ambleside centre (the hill to the cottage isn't as big as it looks on Google maps). It had everything we needed despite spending most of our time out walking or hiding in the local pubs from the weather! All in all, would highly recommend if visiting Ambleside or the Lake District in general!

The breakfast was delicious and it was delivered to us hot and at the time requested. Our dog Dennis had a lovely time and made a friend in Elsa :) All in all a fantastic trip and we highly recommend!

    Amy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect romantic getaway with stunning views across the lake, I would without a doubt stay here again!

    Jack2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived to a personal welcome, and were made to feel at home right away. We were treated to a cooked breakfast on both mornings, which was a pleasant surprise! Is spite of the weather, the views of Lake Windermere were amazing from the large windows on the ground floor. The home is gated, with secure gardens for our dog to play. We’re hoping to return in the summer to see the lake in all it’s glory!

    Kyle2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place. I came with very little knowledge of what to expect and I had an amazing time. The host is very friendly, available and helpful. I had no idea where to go walking and the host immediately gave me several recommendations. Artie's Lodge overlooks Lake Windmere with a stunning, undisturbed view. The place inside is kept extremely clean and is full of character and quirks. The lodge is very well furnished. My favourite bits were the massive bed and amazing bathtub! I went with the full English breakfast and certainly wasn't disappointed. The meat was extremely flavourful and those home grown eggs! I came away having really enjoyed my stay and just wished I were staying longer. I would definitely stay here again.

    James2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth was a fantastic host - the lodge is beautiful, the location is perfect, and breakfast was delicious and a much appreciated addition to the stay. Oh, and the view! One of our best AirBnB’s we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many around the world. Thanks very much for a great stay, 100% recommended.

    Josh2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! We had such a wonderful time! Thank you so much for making us feel welcome, we will definitely be back!

    Daniel2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely visit. Beautiful location and close by to bars/restaurants. The out house was bigger than expected and the breakfast was an amazing touch. Wish we stayed longer. Elizabeth was very accommodating and we would love to come back in the summer time and explore even more of Lake Windermere.

    Zoe2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay, great service and amazing views with a cosy window seat. Delicious breakfast. Would go again!

  • Great place to stay to explore the lakes. We found our way on a lovely walk to Bowness on Windermere from here and easily to Ambleside too. Being so close to all the cafes and restaurants in Windermere was great for the evenings too so we could just nip round the corner. The place itself is really cosy and I definitely recommend a stay here.

  • The apartment is beautiful throughout. The location is very central so easy to find restaurants and shops. Communication between the hosts and myself was very quick and they made sure to cover all areas and was always there to help if needed. The little touches they added just made the stay extra special, they had a sweet box for us and my dog even had his own treats. I will be booking with them again when I go back to Windermere.

  • This was my first trip to the Lake District, and I was a bit cautious of staying in a central location. But I'm glad I made the choice to stay at the Admiral's Nest for my first visit. Peter was a wonderful host, and extended some lovely gestures for us. The location was easy to find, check in simple. The apartment had everything we needed and we felt very much at home - good WiFi, a full kitchen for us to prepare meals etc...very warm and cosy. The only thing to note - this place is very central. So when it's busy, there may be noise from outside in the evenings...or you can go out and join the folk!

  • Gary & Juliet’s place was perfect ! Location was spot on, the apartment was clean, fresh and decor was lovely. We especially loved all the thoughtful and personalised amenities throughout. We will definitely be back !

    Sian2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovey place. Free parking! And rapid response with all my enquiries. Most importantly, spotlessly clean. Only downside was the plentiful free to eat snacks, particularly the Haribo Tanfastics - a personal favourite I try to resist.

    Daniel2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic apartment. Everything new and up to date inside. Great location and hosts. Spotlessly clean. Not the cheapest, but well worth it.

    Due to covid 19 we are currently closed. But when it is safe to open you will find a quiet country hut situated in a private area alongside our family home in Windermere. The hut is crafted with every attention to detail considered. Including a kitchen area and shower room, underfloor heating, a TV, WiFi and a double bed all furnished in a very stylish decor. Through the pretty picture window you can see the outside space complete with Chiminea and tranquil country views. A perfect hideaway!
    Set on a private road, away from the noise, and yet both Windermere and Bowness are only a short 10 minutes walk away.There is a private parking area with plenty of space that is shared with the main house, connected to a small path leading you to the hut. Mountain bikers are welcome to bring and leave bikes in our secure garage.
    The hut is based on a quiet, hidden road, in walking distance to the vibrant Windermere town where there is plenty of places to eat out from Italian cuisine to Thai. One of our favourite places to eat is The Smith a small family run pizza restaurant with a log fire and twinkly fairy lights. If you like your beer and ales the crafty Ba is a friendly place with homely decor and a great ambience, not to mention the most extensive selection of drinks available. We've had many a cheeseboard here! For amazing brunch and breakfast it's a must to visit Homeground coffee and kitchen! And for sunny days I recommend Cafe Italia across the road with outside seating where you can drink cappuccinos and watch the people go by.
  • Oakland Hut is a hidden gem. We booked this as a super last minute getaway as our ski holiday was cancelled, and we are so glad we did! We had such a lovely time and had everything we needed within the hut itself, with local amenities just a short walk away. It’s so cosy inside and the surroundings are just beautiful. Would love to come back one summer to make use of the outdoor seating and bbq! Jo and Darren were great hosts, highly recommend :)

    Libby2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jo’s place is super clean and although small, perfectly formed. Jo had left scones for us when we arrived which were delicious and a lovely touch. Everything in the hut is of high quality and there’s a terrace which I’m sure is lovely in the summer. It’s a short walk to Windermere with various restaurants and pubs etc. Would definitely recommend it to a friend - thanks so much Jo!

    Antonia2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay that we cant recommend enough. Perfectly situated from both Windermere and Bowness by foot (or by other means) if you want somewhere close to the towns yet away from the noise. Stunning views from the hut over rolling hills and off in to the distance which come at great value for money in a very pricey area. Super clean, and really well fitted out the hut was ideal for our needs. Jo was a great host who went to every measure and beyond to make us feel comfortble. Would happily stay again in the future - thanks for having us.

    Oliver2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The five stars option isn’t enough! We have travelled to Windermere/Bowness-on-Windermere many times over the past 13 years, but this stay has absolutely been the most special and memorable stay. Jo and Darren kindly left a lovely bottle of bubbly for our Anniversary 💕. The Hut is just perfect, so beautifully decorated and so cleverly designed. We loved the Stag and Heart details which are so pretty and stylish. The views are spectacular and how lovely to wake up to sheep just outside the window. We were sad to leave today, but we will book to return. Our best Anniversary ever, Suzanne and Paul

    Suzanne2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • A gorgeous and cosy place to stay in the Lakes, only a short walk to Windermere town and Jo and Darren were super friendly and added lovely touches to make us feel welcome! A perfect home for a few days away!

    Isabella2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Jo's place is amazing. Fantastic location with stunning views. Jo has made a small space into a haven with everything you could need and more for a break away.

    Vicki2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely few days staying in Jo's hut and exploring the Lake District. Although the weather was less than ideal, we still managed to enjoy our time away and we would definitely recommend staying at Oakland Hut due to the great location and brilliant facilities.

    Rebecca2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • We booked Jo's place as a birthday gift for my brother and sister in law. They had a lovely time, the hut is very cosy and welcoming and Jo added a very personal touch leaving a birthday cake and card which was much appreciated.

    Bowness-on-Windermere, England, United Kingdom

    A charming apartment in a traditional Lakeland house. Ideal for walking, cycling, climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking. Wide choice of shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants in nearby Windermere & Bowness. Main tourist attractions within easy reach.
    Willow is a located in tranquil woodland with views towards the mountains and fells. The apartment is part of an extension to Pinethwaite Lodge. The original part of Pinethwaite Lodge dates from the late 19th Century. Willow has a bedroom with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers. The kitchen, dining and living area are all in one room with sink, electric oven, hob, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, dining table and chairs, settee and TV. The bathroom has underfloor electric heating, a shower, toilet and wash hand basin. A cot for a baby can be provided on request but please bring bedding for the cot (my children are in their mid 20s now!) Willow and our grounds are not 'child friendly', however. I do not provide child proof plug socket covers or cupboard locks. In addition there are a number of external hazards including a pond, stream and stone steps close to the apartment. Your child/children will need to be supervised at all times. I charge a one off payment of £5.00 for the use of the cot. I can provide a camp bed which fits in the kitchen/dining/living room area if the sofa is moved! It is a bit of a squeeze! If you wish to use the camp bed as well please bring a sleeping bag. I charge a one off hire fee of £5.00 for the use of the camp bed. There is a small courtyard by the entrance with table and chairs. Bicycles can be stored in an undercover storage area next to Willow in our shed.
    The Lake District is a year round destination and Pinethwaite Lodge is located near Windermere in the heart of the National Park. Outdoor opportunities are endless: walking, cycling climbing, rowing, sailing and kayaking - all within easy reach and Windermere Golf Club is just up the lane. The main tourist attractions of the southern Lake District are all on the doorstep – Windermere with cruise boats, Beatrix Potter attractions, a cinema in Bowness – and a little further away are the Aquarium of the Lakes, Car Museum, Sizergh Castle and Brockhole Visitor Centre. Bowness and Windermere are within a couple of miles, with a wide choice of shops, tea rooms, cafes and restaurants and modern and traditional pubs. The popular centre of Windermere is surrounded by very accessible vantage points that give glorious views of the surrounding area and lake. Orrest Head, a 784’ hill north of the town, provides one of the finest panoramas – as does School Knott – immediately behind Pinethwaite. Another easy climb is Biskey Howe, a 300’ hill east of Bowness, which has quaint narrow streets and a 15th century church. Windermere, the lake, has fourteen islands, including privately owned Belle Isle with its 18th century round house. Further afield, the list of stately homes, steam railways, lakes and tarns, homes of authors and poets, and fine eating places, is almost endless, all set in the deep valleys and foothills of the Lakeland fells, where some of Britain’s best scrambling and mountain walking may be found. Even in today’s busy world, it is possible still to leave cars and people behind and find solitude in many parts of the Lake District. In addition, Pinethwaite is a haven for wildlife: foxes, badgers, roe deer, and a wide range of birds, from buzzards, to long-tailed tits, warblers, fly catchers, heron, tawny owls and many more.
  • Fantastic stay as always at Willow. Cecilia is a wonderful host and it was the perfect escape for a long weekend. I can't wait to return.

    Ian2020-03-22T00:00:00Z

  • We’ve had a wonderful two days at Dorothy’s Place. The location is beautiful and so peaceful. We loved the decor and there are so many lovely touches like the food basket on arrival. Nigel gave us a very warm welcome and communication with Julie was excellent. We would highly recommend staying here for a tranquil visit to Windermere.

    Ruth2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great little find. The accommodation was even better than it looked in the pics. We arrived on a dark evening to the lights on and everywhere lovely and warm, plenty of hot water etc. Everything was spotless. A lovely basket of treats had been left for our arrival. Julie was easy and quick to communicate with. They also helped recommend a nice Thai in Bowness. We walked down into town on a snowy day, but make sure you go down Smithy Lane as suggested in their guide, much safer route. We would definitely return. Thanks for a lovely time.

    John2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Ashna2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We have just returned from a short break at Ada’s Retreat and everything was just as described - better in fact. Lots of thoughtful touches to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Great location with some nice walks from your doorstep and good amenities a very short walk away in Bowness. The weather was not as kind as it might have been but that didn’t stop us getting out and what a lovely place to return to! Definitely a property to return to. Thanks so much to Louise and Steve for being such fine hosts.

    Sue2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had a fantastic long weekend staying at adas retreat! Louise was an excellent host, incredibly helpful and gave us very clear directions etc. And messaged to make sure we had arrived safely. We arrived to find the home beautifully clean and had been left wine and chocolates which were an unexpected treat. Such a fantastic location to explore the lakes from only 15 minutes away from Ambleside and plenty walks nearby. Everyday we looked forward to getting cosied up at the house, and didn’t get want to leave. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it incredibly highly for anyone else who is looking to spend time in the area.

    Emma2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is prettier than the pictures and really is worth the 5 Stars! all the handy bits you need and more. A very warm and welcoming home with plenty of space to mooch about if you're stuck indoors due to the weather! Honestly could not fault our stay at Ada's Retreat.

    Phoebe2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • 5 star plus. Highly recommend staying here.

    Troy2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful, welcoming accommodation in a gorgeous setting. Five minutes walk into the town for all amenities. In a great location to set out exploring for the day. We had a very warm welcome from Louise who shared her local knowledge, providing us with detailed maps and information of some great walks to help us make the most of our quick visit to the lake district. Louise has thought of and provided everything you could possibly need in the cottage, the kitchen is fully equipped and has the things that can make a difference to cooking etc like oil, baking paper, glad wrap. Plenty of soap/dishwashing tablets etc to clean up and keep it all lovely and fresh. We had an amazing time in this cosy comfy cottage and highly recommend to stay here. Thank you Louise 🙂

  • This is the second time I have visited and looking forward to revisiting again next year. Steve and Louise are great hosts and Adas is an ideal destination.

    Mark2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Ada’s retreat is a small slice of heaven in the beautiful Lake District. Having stayed in the lakes many times and in many different luxury hotels, I can honestly say Ada’s retreat is up there for us as one of our most enjoyable stays. This place really is home from home, super clean, comfortable and welcoming. Louise is a fantastic host who had thought of every detail and amenity. On top of this, it is wonderfully located for exploring all of the Lake District, we will definitely be returning one day and cannot recommend it enough.

    Bowness-on-Windermere, England, United Kingdom

    The apartment is a recent creation in a building occupied by a weaving business at the turn of the last century run by a lady designer named Annie Garnet. The apartment is tastefully decorated and fully equipped with a modern kitchen and shower room. The apartment is on the ground floor and has an opening 'Juliet' balcony facing towards the lake. It has its own reserved parking space and is just 200 yards from the centre of the busy village of Bowness and the waterfront of Windermere itself.
    The room is open plan and is the room used by Annie Garnet for the weaving looms which created her products for sale in the London market of the Art Nuveau period. A book has been published about her stunning fabrics, and a permanent exhibition of her business is located in the nearby Kendal Museum of Lakeland Life. The ground floor room is part of a small building which was teh original stable block for the main house, and is now split into just four apartments.
    The cottage which has four individual flats is located in a quiet cul-de-sac on the side of Brantfell. There is a reserved parking space for each flat and they are clearly marked. You should drive past the entrance to Fairfielld House and take the next right into Fairfielld Rd. The car park entrance is immediately on the right. The road is on a short but steep hill from the main village where all the restaurants, pubs, shops and attractions are located, and the promenade, boat jetties and waterfront of Windermere are just 100 yards further on. Up the top of Brantfell there is a pleasant walk that gives superb views in all directions.
  • My husband and I stayed in this apartment for three nights. It is beautifully appointed and in a stunning location, within walking distance to the lovely shopping area in Bowness-on-Windermere which has many varied shops and great places to eat. Also close driving distance to Rydal and Grasmere. We also took our car across the ferry (which is close to the apartment) to Hawkshead and Coniston. The apartment is thoughtfully furnished and has everything one could need for a lovely stay.

    Lisa2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • High quality accommodation that justifies the price.

    Derek2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • A neat and tidy studio apartment, ours had a view down hill to the lake. All amenities you’d need/expect. Very clean, modern and tidy, no complaints. Location is very close to center of Bowness-on-Windermere. Slightly tricky with a buggy if you’re traveling with baby but we managed just fine. Would recommend and would stay again (we were mum dad and 11 month old).

    Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria, United Kingdom

    Small but perfectly formed en suite double room in a Lakeland Victorian townhouse. The house is on a quiet street in the heart of Windermere, just 2 minutes walk from the many bars, cafés, restaurants and shops, and just 15 minutes walk from the shores of lake Windermere. The train station is a 10 minute walk away.
    A light, sunny room (when the sun is shining :)) at the back of the house with views of the Lake District mountain tops. The space is small but not pokey. It's been beautifully renovated with a brand new en-suite bathroom, a very comfortable bed and a selection of fair-trade teas and fresh coffee for you in the room.
  • A really lovely place to stay in the Lake District. Perfect location in Windermere. The room is perfect, really liked the little tea and coffee station in the room and John made us an excellent breakfast both days. Would absolutely recommend this accommodation.

    Stephanie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. Lovely room, thoughtful & caring host. Location is ideal. John went out his way to make us Vegan brownies on leaving. Wonderful touch to a wonderful host. Thank you

    Kyle2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • John is one of the nicest people I have met. He treated me like a personal guest in his own home. The room is sparkling clean and the amenities are great. John rustled up a hearty breakfast and had excellent advice about local trips. Highly recommend. I would give it 10 stars if I could.

    Jagan2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • John is a really friendly and helpful host with a beautiful home. We had a great time staying here, and would definitely come again.

    Tonia2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Amber2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • John was amazing! A lovely host, very good tips for the area and made us feel most welcome. The room was great as well. Very clean and a super comfortable mattress. We were sad to leave after just one night and will be back when we’re in the area again. You’re missing out if you don’t stay here!

    Annkathrin2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my husband can highly recommend John's place. John is an exceptional host. The communication was super. He was very quick to respond with any questions. He is easy to talk to, friendly and accomodating. John let us drop bags off early and park car. He offered us a guest pass for the car and we were able to park right outside the house. It's location could not be better to explore Windermere with its beautiful shops, cafe bars, restaurants and so much more. It is in a very peaceful and quiet area of Windermere. A 5 minute stroll into the heart of the town and 20 minutes to Bowness. It really is such a magical area and John's place is perfect to use as a base to explore. The photo doesn't do this place justice. It's a beautiful Victorian house. Full of charm. Its absolutely spotless. Immaculate. The bed was super comfortable and the bedding luxurious. A nice hospitality tray. Stylish en suite bathroom with a great power shower. Breakfast was offered. We love omelettes and this was not a problem. Served downstairs in the bright and airy basement in a beautiful kitchen with lovely coffee. A great start to the day. Our stay could not have been any better. We would highly recommend this wonderful Airbnb. It's a very good price too. Always a bonus.

    Debra2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very good place and John is a nice host. John is very kind and skilled in art and music. He was very kind, listening patiently to my fluent English and paraphrasing words I didn't understand. My time talking with John is still an important memory for me! Surrounded by John's house and the nature of windermere, we had a very nice time! The room was very cute and renovated by hand and looked like a hotel. There is also a brand new private bathroom with a nice British antique handle. The bed is large enough to sleep with two people. In the evening, I cooked freely in the kitchen with open kitchen. Because John cooks everyday, he has a lot of spices and Japanese knives. I was able to relax and relax as if I were living abroad. The house is a quiet place because it is just one from the main street. Supermarkets and main streets are just around the corner, and within 5-10 minutes walk from windermere station. I want to go to England again to stay here! Thanks for John's hospitality!

As well as a shower there is also a small bath for you to relax in too.

    Very quiet and private location but only 10 mins walk into Windermere town centre or down to the lake.
  • A lovely Airbnb in perhaps the best possible Windermere location. Less than a five minute walk to both lake and town. Also a wonderful base from which to explore the rest of the lakes. :)

  • The secret nook is stylish and has a warm touch of home, plus a little more extra special pretty touches. I have enjoyed my stay there and should I come back to England and the area would definitely want to stay at the secret nook again.

  • Cutest little cottage in a very good location, had everything we needed and more, home away from home.

  • Secret Nook is in a fab location where it is easy to walk to both Windermere centre and the lake.

  • Beautiful little flat in the perfect location, right in the heart of the Lake District. The flat was very stylish, spotlessly clean, roomy and comfortable, and had all the amenities needed for a great weekend break - and more. The host, Jenna, included some very thoughtful touches, such as a bottle of milk for the weekend, and I felt very welcome in her flat. As a host she also went the extra mile when I accidentally locked myself out of the flat - driving from a different town to come and rescue me, with no questions asked. Would definitely recommend this stay for a solo traveller or a couple - it’ll be the perfect place for your holiday.

  • Jenna's responses to my queries were super quick which was reassuring. The flat is spacious and clean and perfectly placed for exploring the area. Coming back to a warm place on a cold and wet February evening was really comforting. We didn't cook full meals but all the necessary utensils were there. The mechanism for operating the grill on the cooker is interesting, but follow the instructions and it all makes sense. Lovely stay, thanks Jenna!

    Paola2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's flat was perfect for our weekend away in the Lake District. It was a great size for two people, and just a couple of minutes to the centre of Bowness and even less to the open countryside. I would definitely recommend it and hopefully will be going back.

    Harry2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's place is clean and tidy, walking distance from Bowness and a good base location for whatever you want to do in the Lakes.

    Wayne2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's place is very spacious, sparkling clean and has everything you need for a stay away from home. It is ideally situated: not too far or too close from the city centre and it is perfectly placed if you want to go for a walk with lovely views of the lake. We highly recommend the place.

    Virginie2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It's a lovely Victorian apartment, very spacious - a great place to unwind after a day of walking. The kitchen is well equipped, comfy bed. Highly recommended :)

    Agata2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jenna's apartment is well-equipped, bright and light in atmosphere. The furniture is comfortable and stylish and all amenities well above above. It is a considerable hike to the shops downtown but taxis are available and there is free parking at Booths for 3 hours, I think and half an hour at Sainsbury's. Loads to see around the area - check out National Trust and English heritage sites. Would definitely stay again!

  • The flat was like a home away from home. Great location, with everything you need within walking distance.
