Access friendly self catering

Countryside Cottage


This is a flagship 4* Quality in Tourism Rated easy access cottage, the ideal base for a family holiday, offering up to date and regularly reviewed facilities for wheelchair users, older persons, persons with a visual or hearing impairment or persons with a learning disability or memory problems.




Many boutique self catering properties are ideally located to serve as the base for you to explore the local & tourist areas. Our accommodation allows you to explore the area on foot or by boat, however, you like.

You can walk up into the town of Bowness-on-Windermere in less than 10 minutes or get out onto the lake to enjoy a different perspective of the area. After a long day, you can head back to your villa or house to spend the evening however you want.



Self-catering accommodation can be a particularly cost-efficient way to holiday, especially if you’re part of a group. Having everyone chip in for their share of an apartment or cottage is often cheaper than booking multiple hotel rooms.

Not only do you save money on the price of the accommodation, but you can also often save money by spending some of your evenings in the kitchen rather than looking for a new place to eat each night. – Splash out, important to have high-quality establishments locally. We feel our self catering provides that. 


One of the best things about staying in self-catering accommodation
is the fact that you get a home away from home. With a boutique self-catering house or villa, you can make yourselves at home, helping you to relax and to get in the holiday mood. You also benefit from the privacy of your own home, so you can focus on your own holiday, without worrying about anybody else around.

 The boutique self-catering we offer combines the coziness of home with a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere and exciting extras like an outdoor hot tub and basement cinema. 


Whether it’s a secluded romantic escape for your mini moon, a countryside hideaway or just a luxurious seaside escape in a bustling tourist town, location is the determining factor when booking a boutique self catering accommodation. We offer guests the best of both worlds, allowing them to enjoy a private retreat in their accommodation whilst being within easy walking distance of one of the Lake District’s most popular towns and villages.
