Fairoak description

Holiday home

The cottage has three bedrooms, including one double with an en-suite shower room, a twin, a single, and a further shower room. There is a kitchen, a dining room, and a sitting room with an electric fire and a feature bay window. Outside, there is a rear patio and space for off road parking. Fairoak, just one and a half miles from Lake Windermere, is perfect for a family break, or a getaway with friends, exploring this beautiful region!

We had a great time in Windermere thanks to the great location and excellent base that Fairoak gave us. It was warm and comfortable and the off-road parking was much appreciated.

Lovely convenient location and central but tucked away from the town. Close to the park and shops and restaurants. Great base for walking and seeing the more rural areas of the Lakes.

Lovely Lakeland cottage in a fabulous location close to Windermere village, the local shops and a good range of quality restaurants. Conveniently located for public transport if arriving by train or for exploring the Lake District further. Clean and neutral d?cor with spacious bedrooms, dining room and well set out for either a family or small group of friends.

Thank you for such a lovely stay. The place was perfect; beautifully kept, had everything we needed, and great location. Thank you for being so quick to help with the heating too when we couldn't work it out (even though it was straight forward!)

Fairoak is a fabulous holiday cottage. It is beautifully decorated and has absolutely everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Nothing has been overlooked there is everything you need. I can not recommend this cottage highly enough. The fact that it is so close to the centre of Windermere is a bonus. We will definitely stay here again.

A charming cottage, decorated and furnished to a very nice standard. It was excellently situated in the village of Windermere and an ideal base from which to explore further afield in the Lake District.

On arrival in Oak Street, we have to pass the cottage, go up HAZEL street and take the first turning left, the cottage is east to find as are the keys are in the Key Safe. The kitchen is small but well equipped and well cared fore. To the left is the dinning room, again well appointed On the right is the hall door, to the left is the sitting room again well appoihted and clean, next left is the front door, to the rigth are the stairs leading to a single bedroom infront of you, a family shower room to the right. Back to the top of the stairs and up 3 steps to the left is the corridor leading to a twin room on the left and a double en suite in front. Everything is well appointed. However the ensuite is a macerator ensuite so is liable to flooding and the shower does not keep warm all through a normal length shower. It is also liable to flooding. For a holiday let it is adequate for sleeping and eating in, not much else. it is situated at the shops end of Oak Street and has a nice park at the top end. At the bottom (it is on a hill) is a Co Op on the corner with a cafe on the other corner. It is close to the centre of the village with many eateries and a fair sprinkling of pubs within easy walking. There is also a Sainsburies close by. Down the hill to the left of the village are hotels, pubs parks and within 1 mile bowness on the edge of lake Windermere with plenty of ferries to all attrections on Windermere lake. Lovely.
