Cooks House is a truly outstanding holiday home, offering unique and high quality accommodation. A detached period style property, dating back to the 17th Century, Cooks House is a most charming building both inside and out with numerous eye catching original features to include exposed stone walls and original oak beams. The house sits below the parking area and the walk down the narrow steps conjures up childhood memories of The Secret Garden and Hansel and Gretel as you wonder along through the pretty flower beds and mature trees and gaze upon the hidden cottage.
Inside the theme is very much based on quality. The owners have used John Lewis and Laura Ashley to furnish their home and have created and eclectic mix of traditional cottage style with a little European and contemporary influence. The results are splendid and ensure that holiday memories at Cook's House will remain with our guests for many years to come.

Lake Windermere is perhaps the best know area in the Lake District and Windermere village itself is about 1km from the lake. The lake stretches from Waterhead, near Ambleside, to Lakeside at its narrow southern end, over 10 miles in length and the largest lake in England. Wooded slopes dotted with cottages and houses line its shores, while the water itself is usually busy with ferries and yachts.
Windermere is not as busy as it’s near neighbour, Bowness-on-Windermere, but has its own charms and attractions. It has excellent amenities and a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars all within easy reach. The village has good public transport links with its own train station and bus routes.
Troutbeck Bridge lies to the north in between Windermere and Ambleside; handy for both but located just off the beaten track. Troutbeck Bridge has its own local amenities including a public swimming pool and a local pub. Between Troutbeck Bridge and the Low Wood Hotel lies Brockhole – The Lake District Visitor Centre. This has an adventure playground, exhibitions, café, shop and extensive grounds down to the lake and jetty.
Situated between Kendal and Windermere is the lovely village of Staveley which is often referred to as the Gateway to the Lakes. It mainly comprises of grey slate buildings which are nestled between the Rivers Kent and Gowan. It is ideally placed for exploring the rest of the Lake District and is only a few minutes away from the beautiful Kentmere valley.
