Windermere Cottages

Windermere Luxury Cottages

The ‘capital’ of the Lake District, or so Windermere is often known, this charming Victorian resort town basks on the shore of England’s largest lake, from which it owes its namesake. And we have a superb collection of the very finest in Windermere luxury cottages, for all occasions, from romantic escapes to celebratory group gatherings and family retreats. Twinned with Bowness, luxuriating less than a couple of miles away on the actual shore of Windermere, these towns offer a vibrant and upmarket escape to a very endearing lakeside resort that has been capturing the mind, heart and soul of visitors for over 200 years.

Within pretty Bowness you’ll find superb evening entertainment at the Laundry Theatre, and there are non-other than 3 Michelin restaurants in the Windermere area – on the way out towards Kendal Gilpin Spice is set in a tranquil gentleman’s estate and offers classical dining with an Asian twist; on the lakeshore, The Samling, with its almost cruise liner restaurant has a long-standing reputation for its superb menu’s, designed around their kitchen garden and its world-renowned seed exchange programme, your taste buds will be in for a treat; nearby the Holbeck Ghyll restaurant has one of the very finest views in the Lakes and the inspired menu lives up to this high reputation.

WINDERMERE GOLD CURATED

The eastern shore of lake Windermere is where you will find some of the most impressive country houses and estates in the Lake District. The 11.3 mile long shore of lake Windermere that is less than a 3 hour train ride from London, has been attracting the well-heeled looking for their own piece of lakeside resort since the 19th Century, with the arrival of the Kendal and Windermere branch line in 1847.

We are very proud of our hand-curated collection of over 34 luxury cottages in Windermere and Bowness. These are some of the most prestigious properties in the Lake District. Some are contemporary abodes with flair and style and others ooze the wonderful charm of a bygone era of hunting, gambling, Penny Farthings, and sloe Gin!

On the lakeshore, you can hear the sailboats tinkling and the water lapping the pebble beach. For some, stepping back from the lakeside on an elevated spot is more enticing, where the rewards are some of the most spectacular views in the Lakes as well as tranquillity like no other. A town centre location puts the classy restaurants and bars, boutique shops and lazy café culture of Windermere and Bowness on your doorstep. Browse our Windermere Gold collection and take your pick.

COMPLIMENTS OF WINDERMERE GOLD

Of course, this collection includes luxury Windermere cottages with hot tubs, maintained and ready to sink into on your arrival. Some have saunas and pools too, and don’t forget that Lakelovers Gold visitors can book a beauty or health treatment to enjoy in the comfort of your cottage with Lakelovers partner, My Personal Sanctuary.

For guests wishing to deepen relaxation further, Winderemere is home to a range of luxury spa venues that offer day passes so you can sample the superb treatments on offer.

Windermere Gold guests can also head to the members-only champagne bar or sauna and steam rooms at Windermere Choices Health Club and Spa, inclusive with Windermere Gold cottages, throughout your stay. Here you can enjoy the fully integrated cardio suite as well as outdoor training and relaxation area so you can take in the specular views as you work out or chill out.

WINDERMERE GOLD PETS

Give the driver a break, perhaps stopping for long luncheons and lazy beer tasting, by going car free when staying in our pet friendly luxury cottages in Windermere. The superb transport networks link you with top places across the Lake District and you can avoid any car park stresses. Plus, your four-legged holiday companions will love a trip on the scenic 599 open top bus or a leisurely lake cruise, where water bowls are provided at each pier.

In Aurhor Ransom’s 1930 children’s novel, Swallows and Amazons, Rio Bay is thought to be Bowness Bay and what a bay she is. Staying in this area for more than a day allows you to see her in all her many guises; a bustling port with lots of activity; a still and magical scene at dusk, with mountains and islands silhouetted, water a metallic pink and the inviting lights of evening restaurants twinkling; and a cold and unknowing mass in the early hours when shadows are long and a mist blankets the view.

Windermere Gold look forward to welcoming you.

Hygge at No.8 Windermere

The original Hall, completed in 1901 is the epitome of the Arts and Crafts movement and many original features have been retained echoing its historic past throughout the twelve, very individual apartments that were cleverly created during 2017. But walk into Hygge (pronounced Hue-gah) and you're instantly cocooned in an elegant, intimate and luxurious lifestyle apartment and quickly into 'holiday mode'.
