    Abigail and Andrew offer a warm welcome to Ivythwaite Cottages, situated in the grounds of a traditional Lakeland stone and flint guest house in beautiful Windermere. The cottages offer contemporary accommodation.

    The Nook is a one bedroom semi-detached house featuring a living room, dining kitchen, double bedroom, bathroom and private outside terrace area. The Cranny is a studio apartment featuring a seating area, kitchenette, separate bathroom and outside seating area. Both have Sky TV, including full sport and movie package, and free WiFi.

    We are ideally located on a quiet street just off the road between Windermere and Bowness-on-Windermere. Both villages are within ten minutes’ walk of the cottages, with plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops. As well as on street parking, we offer a private car park at the rear of the cottages.

    The cottages are let on a self-catering basis. We pride ourselves on our hospitality, so, for an additional cost paid locally, we offer a large breakfast menu, served in our elegant dining room warmed in the winter months by a log burner. The favourite choice is our Cumbrian breakfast with locally sourced sausages, bacon and eggs; but we also serve vegetarian and lighter options.

    Whether the reason for your visit is to take part in the activities that the beautiful Lake District offers, or whether it is to relax and enjoy the scenery, we hope to welcome you to our cottages and help you make the most of your visit.
