QUALITY FURNISHINGS SET AGAINST CHARACTERFUL DECOR

Set over three floors, the well-designed layout gives everyone a good degree of privacy and space, while the cosy lounge and well-appointed kitchen are the perfect social spaces to plan your next adventures.

Enter from the front yard into the hallway and you’ll find the separate dining room with ample seating for six – the perfect space for a family games night! Beyond here, nestle into the comfortable lounge with deep cushioned sofas and enjoy the SMART TV and traditional wood-burning stove. Off the lounge is the modern kitchen, with everything you’ll need to self-cater after a day on the fells and plenty of workspace for the whole family to lend a hand with the dinner. To the rear of the house, there’s a good-sized private courtyard with ample seating – arguably, a golden ticket when it comes to town centre accommodation!

Leading from the lounge, follow the slate staircase down to the first king-sized bedroom with an en-suite shower room, ambient lighting and tasteful furnishings. Upstairs, the first floor showcases a second king-sized bedroom and a further twin bedroom – both sharing the family bathroom with shower over bath, wash basin and WC. All three bedrooms have a good amount of storage, a TV and double-glazed windows.

Please Note: There is no allocated parking for the cottage, but we can recommend the nearby Broad Street Car Park where you can take advantage of the £1 per 24-hour ‘Early Bird’ parking tariff if you pull up before 9am. You can pay with coins or by using the ‘paybyphone’ app. More details can be found in the car park itself.

Location & Nearby

IT’S LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

Sitting right in the heart of this popular Lakeland town, Tiggy Winkle Cottage is a traditional mid-terrace property with a location that’s hard to beat! From the roadside, you’re looking at a pretty Lakeland stone-built cottage with a bijou front garden, but step inside and this home from home is deceptively spacious, with plenty of room for all of the family – not forgetting the dog can come along too! Relax in front of the wood-burning stove, retreat with your book to any of the well-appointed bedrooms, or make the most of the prized outdoor space and take in the sounds of village life from afar.

The muted yet joyful decor creates a welcoming atmosphere and makes this place a true haven in the centre of bustling Windermere. As one of the Lake District’s most popular locations, you’ll find a good choice of low-level, family-friendly walks from the doorstep including Orrest Head, Brant Fell and School Knott. And you’re only a stones throw from the shores of Lake Windermere: from where you could hire a paddleboard, take a cruise along the Lake, or, if you’re feeling brave, give open water swimming a try. After a day of exploring, stroll only a few steps from the cottage to Cafe Italia – not only to enjoy the great food, but it’s the perfect place to sit back and watch the world go by!

Absolutely loved our stay at Tiggy Wingle Cottage, perfect location and everything we needed. Lakeland Retreats had thought of everything to meet our needs. We will definitely book again, in fact, my 5 year old said he would like to book the cottage for his birthday in June :-)))) thank you

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of September. The cottage is exactly like the photos. It was clean and comfortable. We were able to relax and feel at home.The kitchen was great for preparing a meal which we enjoyed in the dining room. Michelle responded quickly to any questions or problems.We even had a few nice days and we’re able to enjoy tea in the garden.Would rent again in the future.

Fantastic location. I think it’d be hard to beat. Cottage lovely but slightly smaller than expected, whilst lots of room in the bedrooms, lounge and kitchen were small and with four of us and two dogs we had a lot of juggling to do. Would use again.

What a lovely little cottage which is beautifully decorated, had everything we needed. I loved the little extras such as milk, tea and coffee ready for you arrival. There was also cleaning supplies so I didn't need to pack them. Beds and sofas were all comfy. There is a supply of kids books and a couple of puzzles and games. My teen children loved their rooms which all had tv and hair dryers.

We stayed here as a group of 6 adults and 1 dog and it was the perfect base for exploring the Lakes. There are a great range of restaurants, bars, and shops on the doorstep. The house was spotless and we were able to check in early which was extremely helpful. The house is tastefully decorated, and the furnishings were of a high standard, however, the cushions on the sofa were feather which was a little annoying as we kept finding feathers everywhere. There is a log fire but logs aren’t provided and we couldn’t find any in the local shops which was a shame. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need and the dishwasher was great as it meant no washing up! We would definitely stay here again when visiting the Lakes.

As soon as we opened the front door, we fell in love with the cottage. A beautiful cottage in a great location. Very spacious and comfortable. Provisions were also provided.The host was accommodating, for my family and dogs. They were also very quick to respond to any queries. The accommodation was very central, and parking wasn’t an issue. We will definitely book the property again.

Great little cottage, bang in the heart of the town. Loads of good pubs and restaurants near by, so we didn’t really make much use of kitchen facilities. Definitely recommend as a base to explore.

You will not get a better location!! 5 minutes to several, pubs, restaurants, shops. This place is a well thought out walkers /dog owners' place to stay. We all have had a great time here and would highly recommend.

The cottage is perfectly located as a base to get out and around the Lake District. Lots of small cafes, restaurants and pubs are open, even in December. We stayed with our two dogs and a small private rear garden was ideal for those evening/morning toilet trips. I can’t stress enough how lovely this cottage is and how perfect it is for visiting the lakes.

We really enjoyed our stay at Tiggywinkle. The cottage was really cozy, very well equipped and in the perfect location. We loved the log burner and it was nice to eat together around the dining table. We had a lovely mean at Francine’s over the road. Would definitely return! :)

What a fabulous find! Exceptionally clean . Fantastic location and perfect for dog lovers . There isn’t any parking but we parked nearby and paid £18 for the time we were there ( Friday lunchtime to Monday lunchtime ) but take coins as the card reader was faulty ! Loved the Alexa for music , took our own logs for the fire and the kitchen had everything we needed . A real cosy home from home .

Our stay at Tiggy Winkle was perfect. The cottage was in an ideal location as a base, and it was clean and spacious. We were able to park on the road outside the cottage to load/unload and used the nearby carpark, with £1 early bird price per day, which wasn't an issue. The nearby Home Ground café and Elleray pub were great for food.

This is a gorgeous cottage in a great spot. There isn’t parking but don’t let this put anyone off as it’s near a car park and we never had any problems getting a space. The check in was easy and the owners were always quick to reply to any messages. I’d highly recommend the cottage.

A really lovely little cottage, right in the centre of Windermere. Immaculate throughout and beautifully presented. Would definitely return.
