    Dougal’s Den sits in a quiet backwater of Windermere, just off the centre of this now rather cosmopolitan town which has been pedestrianised to create uniquely paved walkways lined with interesting shops, cafes and bars dotted with discreet lighting, the streets quite a spectacular site in the evenings. Some wonderful and rewarding walks can be enjoyed straight from the door, the views from nearby Orrest Head are certainly worth the hike.

The cosy lounge room set out around the warming gas fire, offers a comfortable retreat after a day’s sightseeing or walking whilst the quality beds dressed in fresh white linens ensure a good night’s rest. A further sitting room on the lower ground floor is ideal for those gamers among you as it has a TV with Sony Playstation along with a selection of books and games.

    The cottage is in a great location, only 2 minutes walk from all amenities. As stated by previous reviewers it is not always possible to park outside the property but we always managed to get parking close by. The cottage is cosy and welcoming however there were a few issues. The main one being cleanliness. We tried to cook food on the first night but found the oven and grill tray to be filthy. After this I noticed other issues with cleanliness; around the bath plug was rotten, the toilet roll tray was dirty and dusty, the duvet in the main bedroom was stained and there was dog muck in the yard from a previous stay. We were left several dishwasher tablets but the smell on opening the dishwasher was pretty awful so we never used it. Pots and pans, and particularly oven trays, were in need of replacement. Instructions for the appliances and central heating would have been useful. There were no batteries in tv remote. As I have said the cottage was cosy and ideal for us as a family of 3 with a dog. I think with a bit more attention to detail and the resolution of the cleanliness issues this would be great value for money given its location.

    Loved staying in this cottage it was a lovely place 10/10. However on arivel the dishwasher had dirty pots in , the yard was full of bin bags and bin was full. Wasn't able to sit out as it stunk. I had to hover the whole house there was chocolate and crisps under sofa and under sofa cushions. We were not able to park near the house it was quite a treck to find somewhere, we even had to pay to park in car park on a couple of accessions which was quite expensive. When I booked it said on street parking. I have complained on 3 separate occasions and nobody has been back in touch. It's a shame as it's a lovely house in a lovely place.

    Everything was great except the parking situation. Can't see a way round that given the location. Having said that, we would stay here again.

    Love Windermere. Love this cottage. Very comfortable as cosy. It's great for us and two kids. This is the second time we've been here as a family. We stayed in this very same cottage 25 years ago just the two of us. Windermere has changed in that time. Much better amenities. We will be back.

    Fantastic location just a few minutes stroll from Windermere Town and a 25 minute walk to Bowness. Quirky,cosy cottage with everything you could possibly need. Our second stay here and hopefully not our last. The basement is a fantastic feature for kids providing a den with their own sofa (can be made into a bed) playstation 2 and bathroom! It meant the adults could enjoy the fire in the living room of an evening. Very comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen. Parking can be challenging. We got a permit on arrival and didn’t move our car once preferring to walk or enjoy the regular open top bus journeys travelling to and from Bowness and other local towns.
