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.

This was our first time in the Lake District and Margaret made us feel incredibly welcomed. She has a lovely home that is easy to find and near various modes of transportation that can take you to several parts outside of Windemere. Would definitely recommend this to friends and family, so do not hesitate - Margaret is the way to go! Thanks again for the lovely experience. Hope to see you again next time we're in town.
Margaret was a lovely host, who was super friendly, easy to talk to and very helpful and welcoming. The location of the house is close to the train station and right in the midst of the town centre which was extremely convenient. Thanks Margaret!
Sorry for a late review. Margaret' flat is really cosy, and the decoration style is really great. This flat has a convenient location as well. Margaret is really nice and kindhearted. She gives us a lot of helpful advice. The first day when we went to her home, she worried that we couldn't find her home easily, so she held a umbrella standing in the rain and picked us up. we were moved beyond words.Thank her a lot. Strongly recommend Margaret' flat.
Margaret was very welcoming and helpful. The property was as described and very clean and tidy. The location of the property was very good as it was very close to Windermere station. The room itself was quite large, quiet, warm and spacious.
Margaret's place was very stylish, clean and safe. It was really easy to find and the access to main attractions are very convenient (restaurants, Morrisons, tourist companies...). The room is spacious and well-equipped. We had a lovely stay and nice experience during our short stay of 2 days. Highly recommended for anyone who looks for a getaway, the Lake District is very breathtaking and we just wish we could spend more days exploring it :)
Margaret was really nice and helpful and it was a bonus to have a lovely breakfast! A perfect location to explore the Lake District and some nice places to wander to in the evening. Very comfy bed too!
