About: Olive's Cottage is a former family property. We wanted to keep the property in the family, as it is in such a wonderful spot, with so many fond memories. We use it for family get togethers. Sharing it with others via a cottage/B&B seemed a logical step.
Why Windermere: Olive's Cottage is a truly boutique property. Guests have sole occupancy of the one acre property. The managers live nearby and keep the cottage and the gardens in meticulous condition.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Guests have provided wonderful feedback about their stays at Olive's, including statements such as 'the views are some of the best in the world'. And they comment on the mesmerising views, the peace and quiet, the ambience inside the cottage and the professional attention of the managers.
