Tucked away from the everyday hustle and bustle of Windermere village centre and yet just a few minutes’ walk from all the village amenities, Bottle Tops is a contemporary Lakeland cottage which has been refurbished to offer high quality accommodation in an excellent location.
Originally Swainson’s Bottling Store (1854) this was where the local spring water and other refreshments such as the famous Swainson’s Ginger Beer were bottled. The name, ‘Bottle Tops’ keeps this memory alive: evidence of the original features can still be found inside. The name reflects the nickname given by the workmen during the refurbishment due to the dozens of bottle tops that they found in every nook and cranny of this historic building.
With rest and relaxation as a priority, the owners have created a stylish retreat, for couples, family or friends to enjoy at any time of year. The cottage is presented with a welcoming, open plan, living room and a quality kitchen. On the first floor there is a choice of two superb bedrooms which are complemented by a luxurious ensuite bathroom and a family shower room.
All you could need for your holiday is on your doorstep. Booths’ supermarket, Lakeland's flagship store, Windermere railway station, bus hub and Tourist Information along with local shops and bars are all less than 5 minutes’ walk away. The rest of the Lake District couldn't be easier to explore with that all-important private parking space available for your convenience.
