The space

We love this house and spend as much time here as we can, and hope you will love it just as much. If you want to walk or cycle, there is a large library of books, maps and guides all about the area and, - as well as quite a few novels and games, unlimited wifi - and a Smart TV with Sky Original.

Guest access

You have the whole house and garden - and a shed for safe storage of bikes. There is a parking area at the rear of the property for two average cars - and unrestricted on-road parking at the front.

Interaction with guests

We will try to be around when you arrive, but if this isn't possible, there is a keysafe - and we will just be a phone call away. We will also be happy to answer any enquiries before you book. We've lived in the Lake District for many years and would be very happy to share information about our favourite walks, drives and places with you.

Other things to note

Because the two bedrooms are on different floors, this house is not suitable for families with young children, but the en-suite shower room and cosy seating area in the second bedroom makes it ideal for two couples - or a small family with an older child.

Sandra and Nigel were great hosts and we really enjoyed staying at their place in Windermere. They made everything very easy - quick to respond to our booking request and messages and very helpful with thoughtful details and advice. They gave us a really warm, personal welcome/introduction to the house and seem to have thought of everything. The kitchen is very well stocked for those who enjoy cooking and the breakfast starter pack was ideal. We found everything in the house very comfortable and convenient, and Sandra and Nigel’s local tips meant that we could get going straight away and make the most of the beautiful landscape while the sun was shining. The location is great for exploring the Lakes. A great experience all round.

Stone's Throw is a very comfortable and well-equipped place to have time away in the Lake District. The quality of the beds, shower and heating system made our stay a cosy one, even on rainy days! The house is within easy walking-distance of Windermere and driving-distance to some beautiful walking spots - Langdale Valley was a favourite. Places we visited, and would recommend, include Levens Hall gardens, Blackwell Arts & Crafts House and Brantwood. Sandra and Nigel gave a thorough introduction to their place, which we appreciated. We enjoyed our stay.

Stone's Throw exceeded our expectations. Sandra & Nigel are lovely and really helpful hosts. An easy distance to Windermere & Bowness town centres and very accessible to the rest of the Lake District. It was a real treat to have a sauna after a day exploring the beautiful countryside. A well kitted out kitchen it was easy to eat in or get takeaway. Great internet speed & a park with swings on the doorstep so we were very happy 'campers'.

We had a great stay here. The cottage was spotless and the welcome food was a nice touch! It's walking distance to the town centre, so more of a town house than a wilderness location.

A great location for visiting the Lakes; the house is spotless and very comfortable, Sandra and Nigel are very welcoming, informative and straight-forward. Well placed for walking into town and a great base for walking. Beautifully equipped kitchen for self-catering, which was perfect for our trip. Certainly one to recommend!
