About the property

Self catering accommodation in heart of the Lake District

Crofton Cottage is a charming, family owned, period stone cottage in the heart of Bowness on Windermere. This beautiful region has now joined the likes of the Grand Canyon and the Taj Mahal by being awarded Unesco World Heritage Status.

An ideal base for exploring the southern lakes, the cottage is a short walk from the town centre and its restaurants and shops and the steamer pier on Lake Windermere.

This self-catering cottage sleeps up to 4 people and has 1 beautifully decorated double bedroom with built in wardrobes, television and DVD and 1 twin bedded bedroom with wardrobe and bedside cabinets. It has two lounges both with gas fires, televisions, DVD players and gaming consoles, a well equipped kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, freezer and fridge together with a separate dining area, and bathroom with power shower and bath.

Outside is a separate storeroom with tumble dryer and space for storing walking boots. The cottage has a small courtyard at the rear, which has seating for 4, and a BBQ for al fresco dining. Parking via parking permit which is free.

Please not due to the design of the cottage we are unable to accept bookings for children under the age of 3 years of age.

We do not accept bookings for hen/stag groups.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed at many holiday rental houses over the years, some abroad and some in the UK, and your cottage was certainly one of the most comfortable and well equipped. My partner and son loved the cycling (including Hardknott Pass) and the weather was kind to us until the last day. We would certainly consider another visit.

Stunning and spacious cottage in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Crofton cottage was perfect! The cottage was deceivingly spacious with two really good sized bedrooms and two sitting rooms, the perfect size for a family of 4. All rooms were clean and tidy and decorated beautifully. The cottage is situated just outside of the hustle and bustle of Bowness with a lovely little cinema at the end of the road as well as plenty of restaurants and cafes and a little supermarket nearby! It only takes 10 minutes to walk down to the town and lake and we never had a problem parking the car near the cottage. We all had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful well maintained Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful very well maintained Cottage with everything you need ...very home from home. Beds very comfortable and gorgeous bright bedding. A washer and dryer were a massive bonus The fact you have two living area's downstairs would make it ideal for anyone with Children as there were consoles and computer games in the front room if needed to occupy the kids. All in all a very pleasant stay in one of the best Cottage we have stayed in while Holidaying in The Lakes. Many Thanks Mary x

Excellent property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfectly situated with easy walking access to everything Bowness has to offer. It’s been renovated to a high standard and equipped above and beyond what would normally be expected in a rental property. Parking opposite the cottage was easy and convenient. No hesitation in recommending this for your Lakes stay.
