Please note Neighbours have right of way through walkway in garden to access their properties. \n\n Neatly tucked away from the main thoroughfare yet only a hop skip and jump from all amenities and attractions Ryecroft is perfectly placed for exploring the southern part of the Lake District. Food lovers will delight in the many local restaurants serving international cuisine and fine wines whilst an excellent selection of shops and supermarket’s are on hand for those who undertake ’self catering’ whilst on holiday quite a novelty if you’re not used to a Rayburn. \nRyecroft is a lovely example of a very traditional Lakeland cottage with pretty floral fabrics reflecting the wash of colour in the garden during the spring. Original fireplaces have been retained in the lounge and bedroom whilst the bespoke country kitchen is a real talking point The Rayburn supplying necessary heat just the place to dry those wet walking socks " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/747/840/747162.jpg CC127205

    A clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed cottage. Really lovely weekend in Ryecroft



    out of 10

    Ryecroft was very cosy and warm with its rayburn, and it is situated extremely close to the centre of Windermere with all of its shops and places to eat, which was excellent as just what we wanted. The information folder could do with a bit of updating as the instructions for the TV and rayburn didn't seem to correspond to the controls (the heating etc had already been set by someone before our visit and was fine for our needs, but we would have found it difficult to alter it), and we weren't sure what the procedure was for the rubbish collection. Parking is very tricky as the space is at the top of a very narrow, dead-end lane with other vehicles parked along one side leaving only just enough room to reverse up through - we were okay (just) as hubby is used to reversing/maneuvering in the small rural community where we live, but be warned it is a very tight squeeze. Having said this we had a really lovely week and would definitely stay at Ryecroft again.

    Ryecroft is a lovely homely cottage. The inky thing id suggest is to make a stair gate available for families with young children.

    Comfortable cottage with very good location . Slight problem with parking in front of cottage as narrow road and we have a big car . Other cars parked on same road and had difficult in get out.



    out of 10

    Ryecroft is nicely decorated and extremely well located for enjoying Windermere and the surrounding area. Transport links to the buses and trains are also very convenient for the property. The property lacks input from a caring owner - the recycling bins/tubs were in a disgusting mess (left sorted!) and the garden is getting over-grown. The recycling of bottles and cans relies entirely on there being a council blue bag - there isn't one provided. Personal papers dating from the original survey and mortgage application should be removed from the users' handbook. The 2008 TV licence and 2012 electrical safety certificates did not inspire confidence ("wiring" of immersion quite alarming). Some key instructions, principally for the new Raeburn stove applied to previous model. The stove failed shortly after arrival, meaning three days without heating before the engineer's visit. Engineer described Raeburn stove as over-sized and liable to overheat and cut out easily (incorrect instructions on how to reset in obsolete manuals). A lot of old equipment in the kitchen needs sorting and replacement. Too much duplication (three folders of guidance/instructions for users!) and too much "stuff" around generally, making regular cleaning between lets very challenging. There was no guidance on where to park our car.

    The cottage was great. In the centre of Windemere with two good sized bedrooms, a living room and a good kitchen.
