A lovely stay in a lovely cottage in a really quiet location. The owners obviously love this cottage and it shows in the care and attention to detail throughout. The personalised welcome pack was a real treat! We will be back!
Great views from every window! The cottage had everything we needed, fire, TVs in lounge and kitchen. Kitchen is very well stocked. Great pubs and restaurants close by too.
We had a lovely few days at Gillbank cottage. Geoff gave us a fantastic tour on arrival and made us more than welcome. The cottage has fantastic views and it's really quiet. We had a couple of lovely walks from the cottage and we walked up Great Rigg which was worth the views which were amazing. We were really lucky with the weather too.
This was our first stay at Gillbank and won't be our last. A wonderful location, with excellent walking, eating and places of interest close by. The siting of the cottage is secluded, sitting within a privately owned estate, and yet just minutes from Hawkeshead and Ambleside.
The hospitality shown by Geoff, the owner, was excellent, as was the welcome pack he provided. He spent time making sure we were familiar with the cottage and its facilities, together with a lot of useful local information. He had already provided a lot of information prior to arrival.
The cottage is very comfortable with every facility you could need. Parking is restricted to one car, which is something you need to consider.
Overall we'd recommend this cottage, and we will be booking again.
The cottage is in great location,plenty of walking to be had from the doorstep, it is very well equipped and very comfortable. We had a great stay and would highly recommend the cottage to anyone.
This is a lovely little cottage situated off a quiet road on part of a private estate. The cottage is in a peaceful location but not too far from the village so you don't feel isolated. The cottage itself is lovely. The kitchen, bathroom and lounge are particularly lovely. The wood burning stove is a treat. The owner is very welcoming and provides a welcome pack of goodies which is super. There is a garage at the house which is great for storing bikes if you are keen on cycling. There are lots of fantastic walks from the house. Latterbarrow provides fantastic views of Windermere and if you get up early enough and make the short climb to the top you can watch the sun come up over Windermere! Beautiful. We will hopefully return next year!
