Lovely place, great location, would definitely visit again!


The Cottages

Lovely accommodation, stylish and comfortable with great attention to detail. The bed is the comfiest I’ve slept in for a long time, like sleeping on a cloud! Kitchen well planned out and has everything you need for self-catering. Quiet surroundings, with great walks nearby and Windermere only a couple of miles away for restaurants and shopping. We spent a lovely week in the Corner House, walking and wild swimming in the nearby fells and tarns. We will be back!


The Cottages

Spent a fabulous week here with friends. The estate and grounds are simply beautiful and the house itself is done to a very high standard. The open plan ground floor is modern yet cosy and we felt at home instantly. The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious. Views from every window are stunning. A perfect relaxing retreat with walks on the doorstep and Windermere a short drive away. I can’t recommend this place enough


The Small House

Really a great place to stay – beautifully renovated barn cottage in a great location. Will absolutely be looking to stay here again.


The Cottages

We stayed here for 10 days in August and it was so lovely. The cottage had such nice touches, everything was brilliant quality and so comfortable. The area and it’s surroundings were beautiful and lovely to get out of the busy tourist towns. We really hope to come back again!


The Cottages

Fabulous house in an ideal setting. The house was spotlessly clean. We would definitely return.


The Small House

A perfect little week at the Heaning Estate


The Cottages

It’s such a dream of a place. It was a perfect stay, we all loved it so much and can’t wait to return


The Big House

A wonderful house – a really 5 star experience and a fantastic location!


The Big House

Absolutely beautiful cottage in a fantastic location near to Lake Windermere. The cottage is decorated gorgeously, has all the amenities you could possibly need and is perfectly located to explore the Lakes – we’ll definitely be back!


The Cottages

In short, we adored our stay at Corner Cottage. We booked without any reviews on this newly-developed property so not 100% certain to expect… we needn’t have worried, we know the 5 star reviews will come flying in!

Corner Cottage is set on The Heaning Estate, just about a mile outside of Windermere. It’s extremely quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the town, yet close enough you can walk or cycle in if you fancy food and drink.

The Estate is stunning. It comprises of a couple of larger houses and a row of 5 one-bedroom cottages, as we all as some other barns. There’s other people around but not enough to disturb you.

The cottage itself is perfect. Bright, modern, we spent the whole week commenting on things we loved about the decor or facilities (so much so that it got amusing how much we said it.) It’s obvious a lot of love has been poured into the space and it makes it a real delight to stay there.

Some highlight for us included the beautiful bedroom with king size bed, plenty of storage and a pair of skylights that let a fabulous breeze through on hot nights. The kitchen is really well equipped and we also noticed lots of the other barns were, like us, cooking and enjoying their accommodation. The shower room has a fab drench shower. We loved the (electric) log burner for ambiance. There’s a dishwasher plus a washing machine/dryer so we managed to do all our laundry before getting home…

Alongside this the little local touches like a Lakes version of Monopoly, a Rough Guide which helped us pick our many walks and bike rides, combined with fluffy robes and slippers plus a bottle of Prosecco on arrival… it all added up to a fabulous stay and we can’t wait to return and have already booked again!!

Thanks to Michelle at Lakeland Retreats and Deb at The Heaning Estate for making us feel so welcome! See you at Christmas!

Amongst many other highlights, it is, without question, the comfiest bed I have ever slept in.

We stayed at the stunning Pod cottage and it was just perfect. Fully equipped with everything we needed. It has been beautiful finished and the attention to detail was spot on. We will definitely visit again.

We couldn’t have asked for a better trip & will be definitely be recommending the estate to family & friends. Great location, close to Windermere, spotlessly clean, plenty of amenities.


The Cottages

Lovely place. Very beautiful surroundings, peaceful atmosphere. We really enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very clean and well provided for. We hope to be back.


The Cottages

Stayed as a group of 6 and it was absolutely heavenly. Everything is new and very stylish. There’s also a large garden area with a great wooden table and the view is incredible. Short drive or £10 to Windermere, great location for some peace and quiet while having the town close enough for quick trips. We will be returning!
