Welcome to Abbey Coach House Self Catering Cottages

The Abbey Coach House Cottages are nestled in a quiet location within easy walking distance of Windermere and Bowness.  Abbey Coach House Cottages offer two self catering properties; The Farriers and The Coaches. We enjoy returning guests year after year and look forward to welcoming new visitors to our delightful cottages. Both cottages are set within the private and well cared for grounds of the Abbey Coach House. Restored with great care and taste to the highest standards, this ideal retreat combines a rich tradition with comfortable modern living.

Surrounded by the Lakeland hills, with private parking, our unique self-catering properties are just a short stroll from the nearby villages of Windermere and Bowness, where restaurants and pubs, serving local ales, are in abundance. Whether it’s a romantic break or a relaxing family holiday, the properties are ideally situated as a base for exploring the Lake District and all it has to offer.

Location

The Farriers and The Coaches are set within the grounds of The Abbey Coach House, a beautifully restored 19th century house, initially the coach house to the original Abbey.
The private grounds, situated on the edge of Windermere village, provide a peaceful retreat and a convenient location for walking in to the village. Both cottages have been sympathetically refurbished to retain many of the original features and charm of a period property.
The properties have access to the tranquil gardens and off-road parking, and are within easy access of the motorway links as well as being a 15 minute walk from Windermere train station. With the centre of Windermere village and Lake Windermere only a 10 minute stroll away, the cottages provide an ideal retreat but with easy access to all amenities.
Whether you want to walk the fells, explore the local shops and excellent restaurants, or take a cruise on England’s largest lake, you will find the Abbey Coach House Cottages the perfect retreat to come home to!

Pet Friendly!

Our accommodation is pet friendly with a multitude of walks to explore from the cottages.

There is a supplement of £25 per pet per week.

Originally the old forge, The Farriers is a self contained ground floor cottage. The tastefully designed interior creates an ideal living space for 2 guests. The garden area is complete with patio furniture and BBQ entirely for your use. Although away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist towns of Windermere and Bowness, it is so easy to access wonderful walks, local attractions or walk to the local restaurants and pubs from the cottage.

The Farriers maintains some original features of the old forge and combines character with modern living; a relaxing retreat at any time of the year. It offers a bright and open plan living space with a well equipped fitted kitchen, breakfast bar, comfortable lounge and a double sofa bed.
