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.

  • A lovely host for a lovely house!

    We stayed in Windermere for two nights, in July 2014 before heading to Scotland. Margaret was very kind to us, advising us on where to walk around, where to eat, and cooked us very good breakfast every morning. Thank you so much for making this trip so enjoyable!

  • Margaret's house is located in very good place. It is easy to access by train. There is Windermere railway station close to Margaret's home.(There is good and big supermarket named "Booths" by the railway station.)

    The Windermere is the center of Lake District. You can go to anywhere of Lake District by boats and buses.

    Margaret is very kind. If you need to know the information of Lake District, she will give you so much information with detailed explanation. She always has interest for the guests' condition and needs. She is very warm person.

    The room is spacious and clean, pretty with antique furniture. You can use own bathroom.

    Margaret serves continental breakfast with many delicious foods. You can enjoy the tea or coffee, too.

    Very good BnB if you want to go to Lake District!!!! :)

  • We enjoyed staying at Margaret's very much. Margaret waited for us until almost midnight as we were so late arriving. Margaret was very welcoming. The room is spacious and clean. The house is full of character. The location is good. Very central yet quiet. Very close to Windermere train station. A very pleasant weekend.

  • We had a lovely time staying with Margaret, who's a very accommodating host always ready with help and advice. The room was cozy and a great place to rest after long days out walking in the Lake District, and it's in a very convenient location, 5 minutes from the Windermere rail station and close to lots of restaurants, shops and grocery stores. Definitely recommend this place if you're headed to the Lake District!

  • Excellent location - right in the middle of Windermere and very near the railway station. Margaret was a nice host - she helped us with maps and tips about what to do around Windermere. Highly recommended.
