The space

Cosy double bedroom in a flat within a traditional stone built house in the centre of Windermere.
The flat itself is very cosy and full of interesting furnishings and vintage finds as Margaret used to run an antique shop before retiring. She is a keen crafts person and expert rag rugger so there is always some new and interesting project to see and anyone wanting to have a go is very welcome.

The bedroom is a double bedroom at the top of the house and has antique furniture . The private bathroom for guests exclusive is immediatly outside the room and has a bath with overhead shower.
A continental breakfast will be provided either in the dining room area of the sitting room or, if preferred in the kitchen ar the rear of the property which is reached by wooden steps which lead to the balcony just outside.

The railway station is just a five minute walk and there are many buses which connect to many other Lake District beauty spots.
Windermere lake shore can be reached on foot in approx 20 minutes via a lovely footpath which avoids the main road and there is a short walk up to the Orrest Head view point from where there is a 360 degree view of the lake, the surrounding fells and even the sea on a clear day. And from here for the more adventurous there are extensive footpaths from which many fells, tarns and valleys can be reached.
Windermere town boasts some interesting small shops including a well stocked second hand bookshop, outdoor clothing shops, bakers, florists, tea shops and cafes as well as the famous Booths family run supermarket which stocks many local products.

Margaret was a wonderful and very accommodating host and we would highly recommend staying here. The accommodation was perfect for what we wanted for a short stay in the Lake District, well located, nice clean room and bathroom, with a good shower, at a reasonable price. If you're driving there is also a little space off the main road right outside the house. This was great for us as we knew our car was safe spot and we wouldn't get a ticket if we slept in (which happened by accident as the bed was so comfortable!)

Margaret is a great host and her home is lovely! Her breakfast was delicious and she even prepared it extra early for us on the second day when we had a train to catch. Thank you Margaret!

Margaret is very friendly, charming, elegant, easy to get along with and always full of energy! Her flat is located at the city center and there is an supermarket nearby which is quite handy! Everything there was perfect, the room is clean, cosy and spacious, the mattress is really comfortable which gave us really good sleep, the bathroom is spotless, and the breakfast was really delicious. She provided us all we need, giving us a ride at the last day when we were leaving cause it was raining outside, really appreciate for that :))))) Would definitely come back again and highly recommend to anyone who are looking for a fantastic stay at Windermere!

Our host, Margaret was hospitable, friendly and helpful. She made us feel at home right away. Her home was lovely, centrally located and was in a very safe neighborhood. She served us delicious breakfasts and suggested places to eat and visit. She was so nice to even take my husband and our baggage to the train station as we had too much. We had a wonderful time getting to know each other! We highly recommend her and her home.

It's been proved to be a smart choice living nearby the train station when u have a 2-3 days holiday in the Lake District. Mrs Worsley's place is well located and so clean. It's a beautiful country style house and the furniture looks classic. And Mrs Worsley offers nice breakfast. Great thanks!
