A One Bedroomed Barn Cottage

A sumptuous sofa sits in front of an electric wood-burning effect stove whilst the generous and well-fitted kitchen with a central dining island with a feature oak beam has everything you’ll need for either a weekend or a longer stay.

The generous, natural-themed king-size bedroom has a wealth of exposed beams and an en-suite shower room with a hand basin and WC. Blessed with a private, fully enclosed courtyard garden, and private parking for one car.

With the entrance at ground level, the quirky layout sees the sleeping area to the first floor and the living space to the lower floor.

One of five traditional barn cottages redeveloped for the discerning, modern-day visitor, End Cottage has been thoughtfully designed to provide exquisite accommodation for a couple. The emphasis here is very much on natural products, tactile fabrics and a relaxing vibe to ensure you make the most of your precious time away together

Location & Nearby


The Heaning Estate is located just a short distance from the bustling town of Windermere here in the beautiful Lake District, now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Set along a private lane off the A591 and just over a mile south of the village, the site is accessed along a sweeping, tree-lined drive and enjoys a commanding presence on the landscape with superb views towards the majestic Howgills, Windermere village and the High Borrans range resulting in a picture-postcard backdrop to this unique estate.

A two-year labour of love has seen the estate owners draw on their own family holiday experiences to ensure they provide their guests with just a little bit more than you’d expect from a self-catering break – a bit more space, a lot more quality, somewhere special to enable everyone to relax, unwind and to share precious family time together.

Along with experienced, local craftsmen and renowned interior designers, the extensive renovation works have involved centuries-old working practices to totally transform the original, imposing Victorian gentleman’s residence and adjacent sixteenth-century barn cottages, groaning with history, into their present-day, pristine condition.

Authentic Lakeland Exteriors And Grounds

The authentic Lakeland exteriors and grounds have been painstakingly rejuvenated and beautifully married with an eclectic interior palate of contemporary living, fashionable dining and distinctive sleeping spaces, all thoughtfully designed with the sole purpose of your assured comfort and enjoyment in mind.

To Suit Your Individual Requirements

The estate comprises no less than five glorious one-bedroomed barn cottages, a stunning three-bedroomed home and an exquisite seven-bedroomed Victorian dwelling which can be booked individually, all together or in any combination to suit your individual requirements.

We had a good stay. It was a cosy cottage in a great location. Only slight issue was there was a small bit of rubbish left behind. Overall a good experience

The end cottage was relaxing and cosy during a rainy week away. Communication regarding check in was great. Fantastic base for seeing all main tourist attractions!

The cleanliness of the cottage and the amenities provided were excellent. The estate was very quiet and picturesque, which we enjoyed.

Really nice stay at The Heaning Estate, super cosy cottage, very nicely finished and clean and tidy on arrival. Nice quiet location, very enjoyable!

Great location, easy to find. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely visit again. We also visited the Watermill pub nearby which we highly recommend. The only thing we found was the shower being in the living room downstairs a little bit awkward. Great stay, thank you very much

A lovely cottage, very clean and has everything you need. In a perfect location close to both Windermere and Ambleside. Would definitely recommend !
On Wednesday, 20 Sep 2023
The End Cottage accommodation was brilliant - very modern. All areas were bright and spacious - all furnishings top notch. Loved the Hifi Square so much already placed an order for one. The best cottage we have stayed in and will look to revisit in the future. (For kitchen use suggest add a slotted turner for frying pan use and skimmer for poached eggs)
On Friday, 15 Sep 2023
We had a PERFECT stay here for a small break away and couldn’t have asked for more. The place itself had all you needed for a short break, and was the perfect location to venture out from. It was peaceful and quiet which was well needed after a busy day at the lake or after a hike. Will definitely be returning x

Good functional modern cottage in a quiet location. As "oldies (72+)" we found the stairwell steep and a bit precarious, so maybe a rope could be useful as a handrail.

Absolutely loved our stay in End cottage… It ticked all the boxes for us. We were thrilled to find a bottle of Prosecco waiting for us after our long journey and milk in the fridge. Everything we could have wanted was provided from a tv that enabled us to log into our streaming services to blackout blinds in the bedroom and a bottle of water should we need a drink during the night. Our cottage was the perfect base for us to get out and visit many of the lakes close by and ideally placed for a walk into Windermere or to the water mill pub and micro brewery… (I can recommend the beef pie..!!!). Being a EV driver having a charge point on site was excellent. I can honestly say I cannot think of a negative thing to say about Michelle and the team. We felt so well looked after and catered for… thank you ❤️

The whole weekend was just amazing. The cottage and area surrounding were beautiful, the interior of the cottage itself had a real home feel to it but was also very luxurious! It was a 5 minute drive into the main town itself too which was great!
On Friday, 21 Jul 2023
Stayed at End Cottage for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. cottage equipped with all essentials and some home comforts provided too. Michelle also provided high chair and travel cot for our 8month old, which was a great help. End Cottage set in beautiful surroundings and only a 5 minute drive or 25 minute walk to Windermere . would recommend to friends and family and would love to visit again in future .

The cottage was absolutely lovely and finished to an incredibly high standard. The setting was lovely and it was still close to everything that we wanted to do in the Lakes. I can't wait to book up my next stay already.
On Friday, 21 Apr 2023
Great place to say if you want a week in the lakes, most places within the lakes are easily accessible from there. All the facilities at the end cottage were great and well worth the money we paid the cottage! Jarred.
On Friday, 21 Apr 2023
We had an amazing stay at the property. The location is great and the accommodation was stunning. It could not have been easier to check in and out. We would highly recommend this place and would love the opportunity to stay again.

Absolutely beautiful location and an amazing property with everything you could need and more. Our hosts went above and beyond with special touches to help us feel welcome. We would highly recommend to family and friends and hope to visit again soon. Thank you!

Absolutely stunning place we stayed in the end cottage they have thought of everything. Location is beautiful and quite with beautiful views. Plenty of information given before you come of walks, eating places courtesy call before we came to ensure we know all about the property. Not far to walk to Windermere. We will definitely be returning next year.

Amazing stay! Perfect location with amazing views and only 2 minute drive from Windermere.

We can highly recommend The Heaning Estate - we stayed in End Cottage for a mid week break and didn't want to leave - the Cottage was finished to a very high standard and was very cosy. Extremely clean throughout with a bed that was so comfortable and the room so dark we had trouble waking up! Fully catered for your every need with cleaning products and tea / coffee & Prosecco. We even did 2 loads of washing. Only a 20 minute walk into Windermere where there are lovely bars / cafe's and shops. Only minor disappointment was that the log burner was electric but it still gave a lovely cosy glow. We will definitely return and hopefully be able to fill the Big House for a family getaway.

We stayed in the End Cottage which we found to be excellent. The whole place was clean, tidy and felt both extremely welcoming and calm upon arrival. Every small detail within the lodge is attended to, with great facilities for self catering whilst also being a 5-10 minute drive directly into Windermere. We found being just outside of the main town to be perfect, as you could dive into the attractions of the town for the day and then retreat to the quiet and beautiful grounds that surround the cottages. All in all a wonderful stay that we would recommend to anyone.
On Friday, 20 Aug 2021
The Heaning Estate is really well located just outside of Windermere. The apartment was beautifully designed, we had everything we needed for a really relaxing stay. The bed was lovely and comfy too! Will definitely be booking again if we come up to the lake district.

Wooooo! Congratulations Monica. We're so happy for you both. And we're so glad you had a lovely time, despite the weather. Looking forward to welcoming you again.

We had the best long weekend staying in End Cottage. The cottage has been finished to such a high spec you instantly feel at home when you arrive. It’s in such a great location with Windermere down the road and so many places are an easy scenic drive away. There are plenty of footpaths and walks to do from your doorstep if you don’t fancy driving too. The outside courtyard is great and despite being next door to other cottages it all feels very private. We didn’t get to enjoy the outside space as much as we wanted as the weather wasn’t always on our side but the interior of the cottage was so lovely we didn’t want to leave anyway! The weekend was made extra special as we got engaged whilst we were there and loved celebrating with a bottle of Prosecco in the beautifully kept grounds. We’ll definitely come back and stay longer next time! Thanks so much to all the Heaning team.

From the moment we drove down the private lane to The Heaning Estate, we knew this was going to be a very special place to stay and it certainly is.The beautiful grounds are immaculately kept and End Cottage has everything and more you could want or need. The rooms,decor,furniture etc are top class as well as luxurious. The shower room is the best ever been in and plenty gorgeous toiletries to use.The bed and pillows were dreamy. Kitchen so well equipped and as everything else here - top notch. You will not get any better attention to detail anywhere. There's nothing that hasn't been thought of.From top to bottom the property is sparkling clean and made us feel safe during Covid times.The Cleaning Team from Lakeland Retreats are doing a stirling job - and their Customer Service overall is faultless. They have gone over and above to put procedures in place to keep Client's safe.The views are spectacular and the light early morning and evening are stunning.To come here in April and have blue skies and sunshine as we have has been the cherry on the cake. It really is heaven on earth and we feel blessed to have spent our first few days of freedom here. It has fed our soul.We look forward to returning at some point and certainly highly recommend The Heaning Estate as a tranquil,luxury place to stay. All this yet it's situated less than 2 miles from Windermere. Perfect in every way.Thank you so much to all involved on #TeamHeaning

The Nook was fantastic - a tiny home away from home with everything you need for a week away. The bed was really comfortable. We loved it. The Heaning Estate is beautiful and in a great location. I will definitely be recommending it and coming back in the future..

Lovely long weekend away! Everything was spotlessly clean, with cleaning products supplied for during the stay as well. The estate in itself is very impressive and located in such a great spot. The cottages are lovely and cosy and make for a great place to escape for a couple of days in the countryside. Can’t wait to come back!

Visited the Heating Estate for the weekend to celebrate a special occasion. The estate itself was beautiful and the cottage we stayed in exceeded our expectations. The cottage was equipped with everything you'd need for a getaway, from cooking utensils to complimentary products. I will 100% be visiting again and I enjoyed every second of our stay at the End Cottage - especially the extremely comfortable bed!

A lovely week exploring the Lake District. The estate was perfect as the base- the location is great. Everything was as expected, the attention to detail is superb. Very clean, you have all the necessities that you need and the place is very cosy - a pleasure to call home for the few days and to come back to at the end of the day.

Great location close to Windermere. Spotlessly clean. Plenty of amenities. Easy communication with host.
