Pudding is a magnificent lakeland cottage situated in the Heart of the Lake District between Windermere and Ambleside. Built in the late 18th Century by James Lowther - the First Earl of Lonsdale - the cottage provides superb five star accommodation for 6 people in tranquil and luxurious surroundings. Situated up a farm track just a few hundred yards from the shore of Lake Windermere - the cottage is in a group of barns looking onto landscaped gardens at the rear and onto Lake Windermere and the surrounding countryside from the front entrance. Brockhole Visitors Centre just a two minute stroll from Pudding is an amazing place for families! With its new 'Tree top Trek' and 'Tree Nets' - children and adults alike can tackle an obstacle course through the trees and use aerial trampolines and tunnels before zip wiring down to the Lake! You can also hire canoes, kayaks, rowing boats and bikes. You can picnic on the lawns or eat at the cafe and the kids can run wild on the huge adventure playground. You could spend an entire day here with very happy kids! The owners of the cottage have paid for 5 full leisure passes ( under 5's go free) for Choices Leisure Club Troutbeck Bridge for the guests at the corttage.. There is a lovely pool together with sauna steam room and jacuzzi . in addition there is plenty of parking and it is less than a mile from the cottage. The cottage itself is superbly equipped with everything that you could need for a memorable holiday - we also provide all the equipment you could need for children.Travel cots, bed guard, stair gate and an abundance of other kit! There is an wealth of wildlife in the grounds and you may well see baby deer, rabbits and woodpeckers and our resident ducks coming right up to your door! Pudding Cottage is a real home from home in one of the most spectacularly beautiful areas of the country. One dog is welcome at Pudding and short breaks of 3-5 nights are generally only available between November and March. In peak season the minimum booking is one week.Please check our availability calendar on the site if you are interested in making a booking. COVID 19 Statement. We are following industry standards to ensure your stay with us is safe. 1. Cleaning. Cleanliness is incredibly important and plays a key part in the health and safety, satisfaction and overall experience of a guest’s holiday, and now more than ever, it is critical to reduce the risk of spreading infection. Together with our housekeeping company Lakelovers we are implementing the self-catering industry’s protocols for cleaning and disinfecting the cottage. In a nutshell in addition to our normal rigorous cleaning regime: • All touch surfaces e.g. light switches, door handles, keys, bannisters etc will be cleaned with a viricidal agent. • All soft furnishings and mattresses will be sprayed with a viricidal agent. • All mattress toppers and pillow protectors will be washed at a high temperature following every stay. • Duvets and pillows will be changed and left fallow for a week between guest stays. • There will be antibacterial hand sanitizer and extra soap in the cottage for your stay. • All cleaners have been trained on the spread of the Covid virus. They will always be wearing full PPE. Gloves, hand sanitiser, shoe coverings and masks. 2. Kitchen equipment. It has been advised that all crockery, glasses and cutlery are put through the dishwasher at the end of each guests stay. To facilitate this: • We have reduced the amount of crockery and glasses normally available in the cottage. • We ask that you fully load the dishwasher before you leave and set it going. • You may find on your arrival that the dishwasher needs emptying if the cycle has not finished before our cleaner leaves. 3. Check in and check out times In order to facilitate the above cleaning regime you will not be able to check in until 5.00pm and we request that you check out by 9.00am. If you arrive early you are welcome to park in the visitor car park and go for a walk. If our cleaner has finished you are welcome to enter the cottage. 4. Removal of items from the cottage. Many items in the cottage have presented us with a cross infection control problem. Many of these things are personal touches that we have added to make your stay in the cottage special so reluctantly we have had to temporarily put them into storage. These are as follows: • Hairdryers so please remember to bring your own. • Toys and games • DVD’s • X -Box • Books and magazines. We are leaving a few local guide books out we suggest you wipe them down with an antiseptic wipe both before and after you handle them.More
