    Superb garden areas with furniture. There are stone steps leading down through the garden down to the cottage. Parking area above the property for up to 4 cars. Please note: Cook’s House sits at the junction of a small roundabout on Patterdale Rd and, although the cottage has secondary double glazing, guests should expect some traffic noise to  be heard whilst in the grounds.

    Cooks House is a truly outstanding holiday home, offering unique and high quality accommodation. A detached period style property, dating back to the 17th Century, Cooks House is a most charming building both inside and out with numerous eye catching original features to include exposed stone walls and original oak beams. The house sits below the parking area and the walk down the narrow steps conjures up childhood memories of The Secret Garden and Hansel and Gretel as you wonder along through the pretty flower beds and mature trees and gaze upon the hidden cottage.
    Inside the theme is very much based on quality. The owners have used John Lewis and Laura Ashley to furnish their home and have created and eclectic mix of traditional cottage style with a little European and contemporary influence. The results are splendid and ensure that holiday memories at Cook’s House will remain with our guests for many years to come.

    A very tired looking cottage. A lick of paint everywhere but especially on the front door would help. The water ran hot and then cold and the boiler is in dire need of a service. The lounge temperature was far too hot but you couldn't alter the radiator thermometer. There was no welcome booklet to let you know how to operate the DVD and TV. The towels were not big enough and in the bathroom there was not enough room to put your toiletries. I suggest the owners need to invest in the property because with a little more thought and a spring clean, it could be lovely. A disappointment.

    Great location, radiators need bled pressure dropped everyday. Two light bulbs popped could keep spare. Broken wine glass left in cupboard so be careful before you drink. Hot tap doesn't work in downstairs toilet. Would stay again. Great cooking facilities.

    This cottage is complex. Firstly in terms of location it sits on a mini roundabout with 7 lanes feeding into it going to Ambleside, Bowness, Windermere or Penrith. The constant noise of cars was bearable inside the house but the constant horn beeping as no one knew who had right of way on the roundabout was stressful ! Exiting the property was another stress - the mirror position to aid viewing is useless so you have to edge out into the road and hope no one smacks into you. Walking from the property to Windermere is technically a 15 minute walk in. However trying to walk down the road to the roundabout with no pavements was like Russian roulette - extremely dangerous and difficult if you are trying to stay alive and keep your children alive too !! The garden is not secure for dogs and dangerous for children with steps up into the garden with no safety rail, tired garden furniture for two to sit at (cottage for 4) and the garden is covered in shrubs and trees making it so dark and unappealing on a sunny day. Internally there is plenty of space but the ground floor is slightly below ground level on one side and so is damp and dark (stayed in August). Had to put the heating on to warm through the house. Upstairs absolutely lovely all bedrooms fine for size, bathroom ok although bath towels the size of a hand towel. Finally another frustration was door keys. It was ok opening doors from the outside of the property but once inside trying to unlock doors to get out was erratic! If you need to exit the building in a rush this isn’t for you! I have never ever done a holiday review and have had many holidays but this cottage is complex and if you have elderly relatives, children or dogs or are looking for a quiet place in the Lake District and enjoy sitting out in a garden this is not the cottage for you. Ending on a positive.... the Location is perfect for exploring the Lake District and the cottage has lots of character and space.

    Cosy cottage near to Bowness and Windermere. Had all that you needed for a family holiday. The location was an issue being on a round with no footpath and having a baby in a pram was our only groan. Everything else meet our needs and had the space we needed. The McCarthy family.

    We stayed at Cook’s House in July 2019, for a walking /relaxing holiday. The house is very pretty, with a lovely garden around the path from the drive. The interior of the house is nice, particularly upstairs. The location of the house is very handy for Windermere, however it’s proximity to the road and particularly the roundabout means that there is significant traffic noise. The details on the website do say that there is ‘some’ traffic noise, but to be fair it is more than that, such that during the day you can’t comfortably sit outside in the garden. The garden is also shady due to the trees and bushes which help to shield the house from the road, but the downside is that they also shade the garden from the sun. I wouldn’t ‘not’ recommend the house, as if you aren’t intending on using the garden it would be fine, but I wouldn’t stay there again.

    We found the cottage very comfortable and well appointed. The location was ideal for exploring the southern Lake District with Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside within easy reach.
