A Pretty, Quaint Lakeland Terraced Cottage

Cornflower Cottage is a newly refurbished retreat that sits in the ever-popular village of Windermere, just around the corner from Queens Park. Beautifully presented it makes a fantastic family and adventure retreat for 6 people.

Just 10 minutes walk away from the village centre you have easy and level access to all the local pubs, shops, bars and restaurants.  Orrest Head and School Knott are very manageable hikes, especially for those with youngsters, the summits offering incredible views of Lake Windermere and the nearby fells.

Take the stairs to the lower ground floor you are greeted with a cosy quaint living area with a log burner which takes you straight through into a beautiful modern kitchen with a breakfast seating area that seats 4 people.

From there you have access to the patio area at the rear of the property to enjoy a nice glass of wine after a day of exploring or al-fresco dining in the warmer months.

    Beautiful stylish property fixtures and fittings are second to none the nicest property we have ever stayed in highly recommend.

  • Phil says:

    Everything you will need for a night’s stay or a month is in this place. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds, fantastic facilities and a lovely welcome pack. Great location as well so all in all, we’d definitely recommend this cottage

  • Ian says:

    What a beautifully presented property with all the amenities we needed and more . Great location to visit this part of the lake district . A manageable walk into windermere but probably a short drive or bus for bowness especially back up the hill . A couple of minor issues were dealt with promptly by the management company . We would definitely return although probably in the summer months but this is no reflection on the property or owners just the weather this October half term was a challenge.

  • Just back from a weekend at Cornflower Cottage a beautiful high quality and very well equipped holiday cottage. As well as being spotlessly clean it has a warm cosy feel to it as soon as you walk through the front door. We loved sitting in front of the log burner relaxing at night.
    The cottage is very central, we just parked the car outside and never used it all weekend. On Friday we walked into Bowness with its good selection of shops and places to eat and walked along the shore of lake Windermere. Saturday we made use of the Hop on Hop off bus service taking us to Grasmere and Ambleside. Sunday we walked from the cottage to Orrest Head, a stunning viewpoint not to be missed and a relatively easy climb. Then a walk around Windermere village is worthwhile. There is so much to see and do, a weekend is just not long enough. Another trip back to this excellent cottage is being planned. Thank you so very much for our peaceful break in the Lake District.

  • Rachel says:

    This is one of the best property,s we have stayed in spotlessly clean and so well equipped to a very high standard. There,s a Small enclosed garden at the rear of the property ideal for our dogs safe in the knowledge they were not able to get out. Just a ten minute walk to many restaurants and shops. cafe italia is superb we ordered takeaway to collect highly recommend. We will definitely be returning for a longer stay next time.

  • Amy says:

    Great stay! Food hamper on arrival was a great touch and the beds were the comfiest.

  • Robert says:

    As the pictures show spotless and just what you want to enjoy your break .Thank you

  • Paula says:

    Excellent accommodation, the house has everything you need. Spotlessly clean and lovely decor. It’s within walking distance of Windermere’s bars and restaurants. Would highly recommend.

  • Irene Flynn says:

    Just returned from a lovely stay at Cornflower Cottage. (4 adults) 2 small dogs.
    On arrival we found the cottage to be spotlessly clean with a lovely little box of welcome goodies.
    The small enclosed garden was ideal for the dogs as was the park which is minutes from the cottage.
    Everything you could think of was provided and more. Cottage was furnished to a high standard and the beds were so comfortable.
    Ten minute walk to Windermere Town centre makes it an ideal location.
    Our first visit to the lake district. I would definately recommend this cottage. You will not be disappointed

  • Katie says:

    Lovely little cottage in walking distance to the cafes, shops and bars of Windermere. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Little arrival hamper a lovely touch. Great park for children just behind the property. Only comment is that the layout might work better with the dining room in the basement level as it’s not really practical to carry meals upstairs so becomes a bit of a wasted space – and the lounge on the middle floor would work well for families with small children to keep an ear out at bedtime! But a small point – overall a fantastic property in a great location, don’t hesitate to book.

  • Geeta says:

    Beautiful, clean, cosy cottage in a very good location. Very communication with the hosts too. Perfect for young children and a very good playground down the road.

  • Cristina says:

  • Fiona says:

    We have just returned from a fabulous weekend at Cornflower Cottage. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough the owners really have thought of everything. The cottage was spotless, well equipped and had really nice furnishings throughout. We loved all of the homely touches. The location is excellent for Windermere and we never had any problems getting our 2 cars parked on the street outside.

  • Sarah says:

    Lovely well equipped cottage ideally located just a short walk from centre. Park local to cottage to walk dogs was an added benefit.

  • Emma says:

    We had a fantastic stay, house very clean and was brilliant for our requirements, weather was perfect during our stay, so it was great to have an enclosed (we have an escapologist beagle) outdoor space to dine in. Enjoyed playing Lake version of monopoly which was provided! Kitchen was perfect and we were able to cook quite a few meals there easily, rooms were beautifully decorated and comfortable beds. Parking was always possible for both cars. Thanks Michelle for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Emma, Mark, Lucy, Ross, Josephine, Ewan and Margy. xxxxxx

  • Mark says:

    Michelle’s cottage was the perfect place for our long weekend in the lakes. The location is perfect and the cottage is perfectly equipped with everything you could possibly need.

  • What a fabulous place to stay, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Lovely comfortable beds and a nice little touch of a welcome pack. Would highly recommend this cottage as well as using Lakeland retreats

  • Just come back from a lovely weekend in Cornflower cottage Windermere spotless and clean beautifully decorated. Beds very comfortable and lots of little touches, would recommend this cottage to any one, you wouldn’t think it was dog friendly. Thank you for the littles extras you left for us went down a treat.

  • Dawn Cavagan says:

    We had a wonderful stay in Cornflower cottage. The cottage has everything you need for a great holiday. Everything was of a very high quality. The beds were really comfortable, great for a good night sleep. The location was perfect for walking into town or down to the lake. Also great walks from your doorstep. Thanks also for the bottle of fizz that was left for us! We would certainly love to stay here again. Highly reccomended holiday home.

  • Kev says:

    As the previous reviews have already stated, the house is immaculate and very well equipped with everything you will need. Everything in the house is of high quality and it is a very comfortable place to stay. Great location for walks from the door and a short walk to the village. Highly recommend!

  • Gemma says:

    We had a fabulous stay here. The house is immaculate with every detail thought of. Very comfortable and high end furnishings. Great location – short walk down to the village with supermarkets. Excellent playground on the doorstep. Highly recommend!

  • John says:

    Excellent place would recommend”

  • Daniella says:

    Beautiful home for a stay in the Lake District. Great location with restaurants and bars near by

  • Lucy says:

    “This is by far the best Airbnb we have stayed in. The property is stylishly decorated and everything seems to be brand new and of top quality. The thoughtful touches include wine and Kendal mint cake on arrival to a very well equipped kitchen, it has everything you could need, even down to weighing scales! The beds are very comfortable with quality mattresses and sheets. A perfect sized house for our family of four plus two friends. The layout suited us perfectly due to the en suite on the ground floor room giving extra privacy and space, it would be ideal for a family visiting with grandparents too. Well positioned to explore the beautiful Windermere and beyond. A great park just behind the house to walk the dog too. Thankyou for our stay, you have set the standard very high!
