We have just got home from a wonderful week at Bumble Choo. The Welcome Pack was so informative, the beds were heavenly and the cottage itself had everything you could wish for. We enjoyed a wonderful walk near Rydal Water, an exhilarating trip up Helvellyn and would highly recommend a visit to Wray Castle. Another highlight was a last night dinner at Baha in Bowness. There is so much to take in and we loved popping in and out of the galleries in the local area. We had a wonderful stay and we will be back. Thank you Bumble Choo!

Laura Bryce, 

Thanks for a fantastic week away in the Lake District. Bumble choo is perfectly located for exploring & with fab facilities (including the log burner which was used most evenings & the bath which I wish I’d used more!) Matt was an excellent host-super responsive providing recommendations for the local area. Thank you-it’s a holiday we won’t forget in a while (we got engaged at the top of Wansfell pike whilst away!).

We had an amazing stay at Bumble Choo, couldn’t fault it, every detail was considered! We would definitely love to return. We entered to a lovely selection of treats and a cosy warm cottage. Everything was beautifully tidy and clean; kitchen fully kitted out, great showers, logs provided for the fire, fab artwork throughout (we got a couple similar pieces ourselves from the Cookhouse gallery a few steps away in the village), great selection of jigsaw puzzles and children’s toys, secure off road parking- everything was really homely and well thought through. Windermere village is charming, recommend Bella Italia, Magic Wok Chinese takeaway, a browse of the gift shops and a walk up to Orrest Head for stunning views. Bowness-on-Windermere (5 mins in car) was bigger and busier and we had a great time hiring a boat for an hour, Ambleside (10 mins in car) is a must visit, recommend the Priest Hole & Zeffirelli’s for food, a walk up to Stock Ghyll waterfall and visiting the pubs tucked at the top of the high street. A perfectly situated stay, we really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. We have two girls 7 & 4 and they absolutely loved their holiday.


“This cottage was absolutely beautiful- lovely interior design, deceptively spacious and well-connected to the rest of the lakes. Needless to say that we would love to come back!”


This was a wonderful place to stay It has been stylishly renovated and exceeded our expectations The bedrooms and bedding were of hotel standard . It was exceptionally clean .The kitchen was so well equipped with everything we needed and there was a fab range oven to cook on . All the extra little touches were much appreciated and there were even torches on each level in case of power cut . The log burner was well used by us and there were plenty of logs provided. The location was great in the centre of Windermere but down a quiet street. It was also good to have parking provided at the back of the house . We will definitely recommend to others and would love to stay again Communication with Matt was easy and helpful.


Wow!!...Just come back from our week's stay at Bumble Choo cottage and what a stunning place to stay. Right in the heart of Windermere, the cottage is very homely, care and loving detail has been placed in every room. Everything you need in a holiday home is there. We all enjoyed our stay here and look forward to booking again.

“A truly wonderful cottage to enjoy the lakes from. A real gem in the heart of Windermere. Tastefully done and to a very high standard. You would want for nothing. We will be back.”


Today we’ve unfortunately arrived back home from an amazing week stay at Bumble Choo Cottage. The cottage is by far the nicest we’ve ever stayed in with attention to detail throughout and so comfortable and homely. It has everything you need for a relaxing self catering holiday. Situated in the centre of gorgeous Windermere, you can easily explore the lakes and it’s huge amount of touristic areas. Will be booking again ASAP! We miss it already
