College House is a totally non-smoking, spacious Victorian family home that offers a warm and friendly welcome to all. Set in a quiet area close to the village centre and railway station.
The front rooms (Room 2 -1st floor + room 4 - 2nd floor) face West and have a view of the fells and catch those lovely sunsets over the Langdale Pikes and Bowfell and even the rear east ward facing room ( 3 ) has a roof top view of Orrest Head and is also the first to catch the morning sun. Although we are very close to the village centre all the rooms are very quiet and invariably our guests are surprised how well they sleep here. All rooms have en suite facilities plus flat screen colour TV with DVD, shaver point, tea/coffee making facilities and full central heating. Wi-Fi and dLAN are also included (please ask on arrival). There are plenty of interesting local guides, maps, books and fresh flowers with a nice selection of prints from three generations of the Heaton Cooper family.
We have a lovely, comfortable guests sitting room with large flat screen TV. It is however usually used during bad weather as somewhere to sit and read or play chess in a peacefull atmosphere with the TV turned off.
Outside, our mature, private garden with its two patios and garden furniture, catch the sun (when available!!) from breakfast until late afternoon. A lovely place to relax with a bottle of wine on a summers evening. Doreen your hostess, a born and bred Windermere girl, will arrange local minibus tours, hire of mountain bikes or horse riding facilities (the stables are well off the bus route so unfortunately a car is essential for this activity) and pass on her extensive knowledge and advise on all the local walks and areas of interest.
Vegetarians welcome. Private, off-road car parking spaces are available at the rear of the property..
