The location is very convenient for Windermere and Kendal. The Heaning Estate is beautiful and very well kept with super views. Excellent communication from the team. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.

    Very pretty property, excellent decor, spotlessly clean. Cosy setting and great attention to detail. Great off road parking. Great location, close enough to Windermere but far enough out to be in peaceful setting.

    Went here for babymoon and can easily say it was perfect for what we wanted. The pod cottage was cosy, perfectly located and had a great mix of cottage wood beams but modern appliances. It was amazing. Would highly recommend to everyone.

  • Christine says:

    Excellent cottage. Extremely modern and clean. Fluffy towels and dressing gowns. Bottle of bubbly a lovely touch. Central to Windermere and Ambleside. Private patio area. Will certainly visit again

  • Ella says:

    We had a beautiful stay at the Pod. The space was really clean, the grounds and scenery were gorgeous and we even had complimentary prosecco waiting for us upon arrival. Thank you for making our Lake District trip special. One thing to note: There are no dual pin sockets in the bathroom for charging beard trimmers or electric toothbrushes, so make sure to bring one if you need it.

  • Jenny says:

    A lovely base to explore the surrounding area. The pictures and information were precise. There was only one surprise… The bottle of bubbly waiting for us. Thank you.

  • Samantha says:

    Perfect Location, Lovely Team and beautiful rooms. Plenty of room to park and only two minutes from the nearest town. Will definitely come again.

    The cottage looks just as on the pictures and it’s conveniently located a few minutes drive from the nearest town.
