• About Yew Tree Cottage

    A beautiful Victorian fronted detached house in the very heart of Windermere.

    Ground Floor:
    The property has gas central heating and comprises:
    Lounge: With wood burner, TV and DVD player.
    Dining room.
    Kitchen: With breakfast area, feature gas hob, electric oven, fridge, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. Pantry with freezer.

    First Floor:

    Bedroom 2: With king size bed.
    Bedroom 3: With super king size bed.
    Bathroom: With shower over bath, WC and basin.

    All gas, electric, bed linen, towels and Wi-Fi included. Fuel for wood burner not provided. Cot and high chair available.

    Patio area with furniture and BBQ. Parking for 2 cars. One pet welcome.

    These cottages, one a Victorian double fronted detached house and the other the converted stables sit in the very heart of Windermere are tucked away behind the main thoroughfare and accessed by a narrow lane opening out into a small courtyard. Nowadays, the horse and carriages have been exchanged for holidaymakers and the ancient buildings have been successfully converted to provide two most interesting cottages with all the desired 21st century facilities that we are so used to but wonderfully married with an Arts and Crafts style theme throughout, perfectly in keeping with the buildings’ historic past.
    Each cottage has been carefully restored, retaining characterful, exposed beams, panelling, flooring and fireplaces whilst handpicked pieces of furniture from the turn of the 20th Century onwards have been sourced to complete the look and transport you back to a bygone era. Well fitted shower rooms, kitchens and good beds, essential for a good nights rest are provided for your self catering stay and even at first glance, Yew Tree and Stable Cottage present as two good quality holiday cottages of a certain style. One can’t help but feel immediately at ease as you enter these unique properties, almost as one felt as a child when visiting Grandma’s house – charmed, cosy and comfortable.

    A lovely comfortable cottage. Only reason its not 10/10 is parking access is very tight indeed. Best way is to reverse in, but breathe in and cross your fingers!

    Lovely cottage tucked away in a very peaceful location. Generally well equipped. Furnishings clean and tidy. Drive way entrance is very tight for large vehicles.

    Lovely cottage in a great location. Very well equipped. Beds not the most comfortable. I would stay again, especially if they replaced the beds/matresses.

    Great cottage very thoughtfully equipped. Only improvements would be darker curtains or blackout linings on the two front bedrooms as it was difficult to sleep after 5am in a sunny morning at end of June and a thinner duvet for the summer months. But would be carry happy to stay again

    Yew Tree Cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you might need. So much so however that there was little or no cupboard space in the kitchen for food storage but with the fridge and some space on the counter top it wasn't a big problem. The cottage is also very secluded whilst being within easy reach of the shops and restaurants in Windermere. We are ex-pats and have previously stayed where we can see the village comings and goings so we missed that. However most people are looking for peace and quiet linked to easy access to amenities and Yew Tree Cottage certainly offers that. One note for nervous drivers the lane is quite narrow and sometimes difficult to turn into if vehicles are parked opposite but there is enough parking space outside the cottage.

    Yew Tree Cottage is wonderful. Not ultra modern but comfortable, spotless and beautifully fitted out with everything you’ll need. Only warning is the very narrow entrance to the driveway. Not for the faint hearted!

    Great cottage, really comfortable beds and spotless, good bathrooms/shower.Very easy access to shops , pubs, the lake and walking without needing your car. There is a great view from the kitchen window . The decor is suitable for the era of the cottage although would be great if there were a few foot rests in the sitting room.

    This is the second time we've stayed at Yew Tree Cottage and we love it! It has a great location behind the main village but is still quiet with private parking for two cars. The new steps giving access to the large garden below are a great addition and ideal for the dog owners amongst us. We've already booked again for next year and the rest of the family are staying next door in stable cottage, their other property. The owners attention to detail in dressing a period property is second to none!
