A fantastic location to explore from. The beautiful cottage is finished to a high standard throughout.

We found this cottage to be perfect for our needs. Everything seemed to have been thought through very well. The caretaker called and was very friendly and helpful. A beautifully quiet spot yet only a few minutes from the shops and excellent restaurants of Windermere village.

Cosy Nook was a lovely property. We stayed here 7 years ago before the current owners had it, and they have transformed it! It is just as it says - a cosy nook. It was also nice being able to contact the owner for the key and gave us an opportunity to thank them personally.

Cosy Nook lives up to it's name and is well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay! Cosy Nook is in very good walking distance of Windermere town centre with pubs and a selection of supermarkets of your choice! While staying at Cosy Nook, it felt like we were at a home from home!

Excellent cottage that was positioned perfectly for us to enjoy our time in the Lakes. Close to the park in Windermere so that early morning dog walks were convenient. Easy walking distance to the shops, bars and restaurants in Windermere itself and a nice walk into Bowness. Excellent location for wider trips to Keswick, Grizedale Forest Ullswater.

Cosy Nook lived up to its name. In an excellent quiet spot to explore the Lake District but close enough to walk to shops and some great restaurants. The property was furnished to a high standard and had everything required.

Good location, everything you need in walking distance. Property very clean, with good kitchen and everything you need to cook.

We absolutely loved this place. The wood-burner was my wife's favourite thing about the cottage. Generally it did just have a very cosy vibe to the place. Next time we go to the Lake District, we will probably stay here again.

The property was very very well presented and cleaned to a very high standard sitting in a nice part of the town close to amenities and close to the local park ideal for our dog.

The cottage was very comfortable, centrally located, close to shops and within walking distance of Windermere. It was our first time to the Lake District and we really enjoyed the experience.

Cosy Nook certainly lived up to it's name! It's right in the centre of Windermere, a 3 minute walk to the shops yet it's really quiet and peaceful. The cottage has been well thought out and has everything you need. The idea of putting a barn door on the front of the cottage was a stroke of genius, especially if you have a dog with you. No escaping! Log burner threw out some heat, ideal for 'toasting' weary feet. Super cottage, highly recommend!

Absolutely fantastic cottage in an fabulous location! Surpassed our expectations on cleanliness! Beautifully finished to a high standard- would definitely recommend this cottage! The location was perfect for exploring the Lakes. Shops/cafes/pubs/takeaways a 5 min walk away. Brilliant!

Had a fantastic weekend in fact wishing we were still there. For my Wifes birthday we stayed here with my mother and our daughter 4 in all, plus our King charles spaniel and her pup, so close to windermere centre. we took our own hardwood logs and kindling as we have woodturners at home however you can purchase locally. Will definitely return!

Stayed in the lovely Cosy Nook, perfect for any visitor to Windermere. Cottage is beautifully decorated, with a log burning stove and wifi! Location: Just 2 min walk from the village of village of Windermere, and a 10-15min walk down to Bowness and the Lake. Will definitely return!!

Just spent a lovely week here with my partner, 4 month old son, in laws and our dog! Didn't want for anything our whole stay, very good modern facilities ie. Wifi, travel cot, fully equipped kitchen/bathrooms and wood burner. It is in a perfect location only minutes away from Windermere and a 15 minute walk to Bowness and the lake. The owners have also left a very helpful, comprehensive guide in the living room including instructions for heating etc, takeaway menus and even a list of dog friendly pubs in the area. We would definitely return and will be recommending to friends and family!!

Stayed here with my 2 sisters for a week, the cottage was just 3 mins walk from a supermarket and various coffee shops as well as lots of other shops. Movie theatre just 20 mins walk away, ferry around the Lakes 30 mins walk and train station 10 mins walk around the corner, can even get the train from London. So many tourist attractions in the area, a car is a great idea for exploring the Lakes District which we did every day all day. York is just 150km drive along easy roads with wonderful scenery. Next time I would spend more than a week in this area as there is just so much to do. Would definately recommend this cottage to friends and family alike.

Having just got back from our stay, all I can say is what a fantastic long weekend we have had! The location of this cottage is excellent- a very short drive to Lake Windermere and to Ambleside. Some lovely little cafe bars in walking distance to the cottage, which had heat lamps in a cosy seating area outside which was great for us as we brought our dog along for the holiday! The cottage was extremely clean, very well maintained- either the cottage has just recently been refurbished (to a high standard) or the cleaners do an excellent job at maintaining the high standard! Lots of DVDs, games, freebies TV, books and Wifi we all provided, along with the necessities such as toilet roll, towels and washing up liquid!! A great place which we will be recommending to all friends and family!!!!

Myself, wife, baby, inlaws & dog loved our holiday here. Cottage finished to a really high standard & spotlessly clean. Great location & very easy to find. We'd all happily stay there again.
April 2014
I booked this cottage from the lovely reviews, I wanted something modern, clean, within easy reach of shops/cafes, but also be able to go off to the mountains on long walks with the dogs!! The cottage was well appointed, clean and modern, nicely decorated, with almost everything you would need, I was surprised to find out on arrival there was no WiFi, as I have always had this even in the remotest locations around the world, the cottage is advertised as having a garden (which is one of the reasons I booked it) as we took two dogs, and a garden was a must really, as I anticipated being able to let them into the garden so we could play with them, or sit out, the only outside space is directly outside the front door, and bcos there are several other occupied cottages right next to Cosy Nook we couldn't do this, so think this should really be taken out of the description as a little mis- leading! The cottage is warm and well heated, we lit the fire a couple of times, the only other thing I would have wanted was a 'welcome pack' of a few teabags, pint of milk, sml pack of coffee as after a long drive a cuppa something is the first thing we wanted! the booking wasn't cheap for 4 nights, so I expected a bit more from it (as noted above) but I have already recommended cosy nook to a cottage, so its was lovely but a few improvments could be made. thanks

We stayed at Cosy Nook during the Autumn and were actually rather fortunate to have some good weather. Never the less, it was still quite chilly (we live in Australia and so are used to the heat). However, this made the wood burner even more spectacular and appreciated. Ultimately, this place literally feels like the most coy place on the Lakes. It's not massive, but it doesn't need to be and is quite modern and makes excellent use of the space available. The en suit in the main bedroom is very good. The open plan living area downstairs has a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and cooker. The only slight downfall would be the unavailability of a baby basinet for our 3 month old (but anyone travelling with a baby usually carries a travel cot anyway). This place prompted my wife to proclaim that if we win the lottery, we'll buy a holiday home in Windermere. While that probably won't happen, if we stay in the Lakes again, we'll certainly consider this as an option first.

A very well presented cottage, very clean and modern. The two bathrooms came in very handy though the lounge/kitchen was a little bit on the small side. Very well decorated througout and very close to all of the amenities of Windermere. It has a small outside space within a small courtyard too. We were able to park on the street throughout our time there. Would certainly recomend this cottage to others.
April 2013
We loved our stay. Everything was practically brand new. The decor was great and overall the cottage was brilliant. The only issue was a slightly over enthusiastic smoke alarm but other than that We could not have asked for more . The location is fabulous too as it was nice and quiet but only 150 Meters from the centre if town. Well thought out and a perfect little spot for a break.
