From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Standing in central Windermere in the heart of the Lake District this architect-designed house is a great base for exploring the National Park.

In the heart of Windermere village, a two-minute walk from the train station, this is a very convenient and comfortable holiday base. Caxton Cottage is a cosy, detached house, with its own parking in front, and a small outside enclosed yard with seating area behind. It is a level stroll into the village with its lovely shops, restaurants and cafés, and then a pleasant walk down the hill into Bowness. A car isn’t necessary as there are many local walks; the lake and the path to local viewpoint. Orrest Head is only minutes away and there are excellent transport links to the wider Lake District. Kendal is 9 miles. Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter museums are within a 20-minute drive. Shops, pubs and restaurants 200 yards.

Step to entrance. Living room. Glazed doors leading to open-plan fitted kitchen and dining area. First floor: Two double bedrooms. Bathroom with electric over-bath shower and toilet.

    Lovely little cottage with enough parking for 2 cars if needed. Fantastic location for Windermere town and its amenities and local attractions Minus side second bedroom a little on the small side but there again only sleeping in it.

    Very nice, bit expensive but I guess that's just because it is in the Lake District. Had everything you needed. Free parking was brilliant. Bed in second bedroom was a small double which was a bit of a squeeze for my 2 children.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. The double beds are as standard 4’ 6”.

    An excellent, well maintained cottage in a terrific location. A two minute walk to the bus and train interchange, lots of eating options nearby and very well equipped for a self catering stay. Definitely going back!

    We stayed at Caxton cottage with our two 7 year old children and found it to be charming, clean and welcoming. the location was excellent, not too far to walk down to Bowness if you fancy a stroll and right in the centre of Windermere. The rooms were clean and cosy and it had a lovely cottage feel to it. The kitchen was perfect! It was clean and a good size and had everything we needed during our short stay. PERFECT

    Lovely cottage, clean and comfortable. Well equipped with tea, coffee, milk, soap, towels etc. A brand new kitchen had been fitted prior to our stay, along with a dishwasher. Very conveniently located close to shops and restaurants. Parking space a bonus.

    Caxton cottage was a lovely, warm house to stay in over a very wet weekend. It is well placed close to the centre of Windermere and less than 5 minutes drive to Bowness on Windermere with its cinema and interesting shops. We walked both from the door, and on another day took the ferry from Bowness to walk in the woods on the other side of Windermere.
