In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


Clean, spacious accommodation set right on Windermere lake side with stunning views, free access to leisure facilities and a private jetty.

Aptly named, Waterhead Studio is set right on the shore of, and with superb views across Lake Windermere. Apart from the small lake frontage, guests also benefit from a balcony, boat storage area and shared use of a jetty. Guests also have 4 complimentary membership of leisure facilities at a nearby hotel, with pool, gym, sauna and spa (further passes can be purchased). On the southern outskirts of Ambleside, just ¼ mile from Waterhead, where you can take cruises down the lake. The visitor centre at Brockhole, with its 30 acres of award-winning gardens and grounds, is a great place for a trip to this beautiful area. Home to a series of trails, walks, events and activities, it also has an information centre where you can find out all about the local attractions. Close by are Hawkshead and Grasmere. Both villages are inextricably linked to the romantic poet William Wordsworth. Historians and Wordsworth fans alike will find a visit to either Dove Cottage or Rydal Mount an interesting diversion. Wordsworth is not the only literary connection here; both John Ruskin and Beatrix Potter also lived nearby, Ruskin at Brantwood on the shores of Coniston Water, and Beatrix Potter at Hill Top (NT) at Far Sawrey. There are many ways to explore this often frequented area and each visitor chooses his own path, by foot, mountain bike, car, boat or even horse. An ideal holiday base. Shops and pubs 1 mile.

Ground floor: Living/dining room with patio doors. Kitchen. 3 bedrooms: 1 double, 2 twin. Bathroom with toilet. Shower room with toilet. First floor: 1 twin bedroom with additional bunk. Bathroom with toilet.

Boat storage area and shared jetty. Parking (2 cars). Couples and family bookings only. NB: There is a small piece of lake frontage. There is a low storage area under the house.

    4th stay at this house as it is now our second home. Cannot pick a better location than this one being right on the lake and a two minute walk to where the boats leave. There has been some minor improvements such as new internal doors and flooring which is nice to see as some of the property was starting to look a little dated. Managed to squeeze 4 small cars on the drive which was a bonus as the nearest car park would have been £30 for the week or £5 a day next door. The only feedback I could give which could help is that the fire escape window in the bedroom was not locked and the only key we could find was within the emergency glass box which you had to smash. We had a small child staying in this room who could have accessed the window so it may be worth adding this to the checklist of items in-between stays to make sure this is locked. This did not affect our stay in anyway as we made extra precautions for her safety but wouldn't want this to ruin anyone else stay in this beautiful house. Will hopefully return next year.

    We had a great stay at Waterhead Studio, lots of room for our party of 7, well situated bedrooms and lovely to have 3 bathrooms too. Great location for our first visit to the Lakes. We needed help turning on the heating and someone came straight away which was very much appreciated. Our only critism was that kitchen plates (generally chipped), mugs and glasses all needed to be washed before being used. Would have been nice to have a more generous supply of salt/ pepper, dishwasher tablets etc... Have stayed in other rentals that have been run a "replace if it runs out" system.

    It's our 3rd visit to water head studio and we still love it. I will be booking for next year too. I enjoy everything about it. The views from the cottage are beautiful, the location in Ambleside is great for getting round to the rest of the lakes. All in all I would highly recommend this property for a lovely holiday.

    This is a lovely holiday home with a fantastic location. Whilst parking is limited to two spaces we actually managed to park three safely. And the public car park is not far away. The owner was helpful in responding to queries. I would definitely recommend this property for a lovely holiday.

    Fabulous holiday house, so much space, and facilities. Ideal for us as we had come up for a Wedding, we did buy car parking space at the Marina, few metres away, only because we had 4 cars (drive will only take 3)
