Full Details

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Windermere, yet in close proximity to the hustle and bustle of the vibrant village of Windermere, lies a picturesque Lakeland cottage known as Gable Lodge.


Tucked away in a quiet corner of Windermere, yet in close proximity to the hustle and bustle of the vibrant village of Windermere, lies a picturesque Lakeland cottage known as Gable Lodge. This comfortable, traditional and yet contemporary three bedroom property offers delightful views of the Phoenix playing fields and the Lakeland Fells beyond.  The well appointed accommodation comprises a breakfast kitchen, spacious sitting room, bathroom, two double bedrooms, and a potential third room that could be readily transformed into a second bathroom. The front forecourt area is decorated with flowering plants in easily maintained containers. To the rear, a well maintained gravelled area within a traditional stone wall awaits, basking in the afternoon and evening sun, providing an ideal setting to relish a moment of repose with a glass of wine after a day’s exploration.  In addition to a forecourt (accessed via a shared driveway), a garage is available at the front of the property.  Catering to a diverse range of prospective buyers, Gable Lodge presents itself as an ideal holiday letting investment, a weekend retreat, a low maintenance secondary residence, or a permanent abode.  The property has been managed as a successful holiday let for the last 12 years and is available for purchase as a going concern – fully furnished and with forward bookings.
Centrally located in the heart of Windermere village, this cottage offers an enviable position, with a plethora of shops, cafes, restaurants and amenities right at its doorstep.  Residents will benefit from excellent transport connections, including proximity to the railway and bus station, facilitating easy access to the main west coast line and providing a convenient gateway to explore the breathtaking beauty of the Lake District National Park.  Moreover, nature enthusiasts will find themselves in a prime location to indulge in the captivating allure of the region, with opportunities to embark on delightful excursions such as the enchanting School Knott route, Orrest Head and beyond to Troutbeck.


The shared driveway leads to the forecourt where you will find a porch - featuring an elegantly tiled floor, and partially glazed with large windows front and sides. 

Inner Hallway

The porch leads into the inner hallway - which provides you with ample storage through fitted cupboards and drawers. Beneath your feet lies a warm and rustic wood effect laminate floor, adding a touch of natural charm. 


Step into a modern and luminous culinary haven, featuring tastefully fitted shaker style wall and base units in a contemporary sage colour, harmoniously complemented by wooden effect worktops.  The cooking area has rustic patterned tiling.  Two windows overlooking the forecourt bathe the space in refreshing natural light.  Enhancing functionality, the kitchen has a 1 1⁄2 stainless steel sink with a mixer tap and a fine selection of appliances, including a washing machine, fridge, freezer, electric oven, and a four ring gas hob with an extractor fan above.  For casual dining, a cosy corner spot accommodates a small table comfortably seating four guests. Positioned by the radiator, this space promises to keep you and your visitors warm while enjoying meals together.


The hallway gives access to the bathroom and sitting room.  There is an external door taking you to the glorious outside seating area with views of Phoenix fields and Lakeland fells beyond.


A contemporary bathroom is adorned with a sleek three piece white suite, featuring a bath equipped with a convenient shower overhead, a WC, and an elegant hand basin accompanied by a mirrored cabinet above.  The room boasts full tiling on all walls and floor, creating a visually appealing atmosphere.  To ensure privacy and natural light there is a UPVC window with obscure glass.  Additionally, practical amenities include an extractor fan and a heated towel rail for a comfortable bathing experience. 

Sitting Room

This spacious and cosy room is designed for comfort and relaxation.  Two UPVC windows illuminate the space, offering picturesque views. Among them, a large bay window provides a stunning panorama overlooking the Phoenix playing field, with the majestic Lakeland fells in the distance, creating a breath-taking backdrop.  For added charm and warmth, a log burner takes centre stage, promising delightful and snug evenings in.  No need to worry about chilly days, as a radiator ensures the room remains comfortably heated. Entertainment is made easy with a convenient TV point, and wall lights offer a soothing ambiance, perfect for unwinding after a long day.

First Floor

Ascend the stairs from the hallway to the first floor, where you’ll find a spacious landing.  Here you can find a practical and sizeable airing cupboard, thoughtfully designed to accommodate your storage needs.  This cupboard also serves as a home for the boiler, efficiently tucked away.

Bedroom One

This generously- sized double room, thoughtfully designed to offer both comfort and practicality. Boasting dual aspect windows, the room is filled with an abundance of natural light. Among these windows, a large tilt and turn window stands out, providing a unique advantage.  Its wide opening capability has proven to be incredibly useful in the past, facilitating the hassle-free movement of large furniture items upstairs. This room also features a hand basin with a tiled splashback.  A radiator adds warmth during colder days, and a built-in wardrobe optimises the room’s layout, offering ample storage space. 

Bedroom Two

This spacious and elegant double room exudes a sense of grandeur with its high ceilings and inviting ambiance. Take two steps down, and the room welcomes you with a touch of sophistication.  The dual aspect UPVC windows, including a charming bay window, bless the room with an abundance of natural light while treating you to picturesque views of the nearby playing fields and majestic fells in the distance.  To ensure comfort during all seasons, a radiator discreetly keeps the room warm and cosy.  The presence of a good sized lockable storage cupboard offers convenience and security for your personal belongings, neatly tucked away. 

Bedroom Three

Although currently utilised as a single room, its potential for adaption is evident, making it an excellent candidate for a second bathroom. With the convenience of a separate toilet and hand basin situated nearby, transforming this space into an additional bathroom would be seamless. Despite its smaller size, the room does not compromise on comfort.  A radiator ensures a cosy atmosphere, and a UPVC window overlooks the forecourt and infuses the room with natural light.


Step outside and be greeted by the charming surroundings of this property. To the front, a well appointed forecourt and garage, boasting an up and over door for easy access and secure parking.  In this area there is also ample space to create a delightful seating area where you can bask in the morning sun. At the rear of the property lies a serene gravelled area, providing a peaceful retreat to unwind and take in the views that surround you and a sun trap in the evening.  Whether you seek solitude or wish to entertain guests, this outdoor space offers the perfect setting for relaxation and tranquillity. This compact rear space provides  plenty of room to sit, relax, and embrace the beauty of the surroundings.
