Beautiful and tranquil haven
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mislet Cottage - what a wonderful spot! The simplicity and calmness of the surroundings were relaxing and the evenings were cosy by the open fire. The pictures and description were accurate and the owners, who live next door ( but not overlooking the cottage) were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The location was great for biking and walking activities and both Windermere and Staveley were a few minutes drive away.

Charming place
If you want to dissolve in a place of old-fashioned serenity, this cottage is for you. Tranquil landscapes around, quiet evenings at the fireplace, a welcoming owner - that's all one need for a perfect time off.

Old world charm
What a wonderful old world style cottage in lovely rural location. If you want an immaculately presented modern cottage this may not be for you, but it is a lovely cottage that is clean and tidy - it is grade 2 listed!! Well recommended.

Lovely rural retreat
This cottage was just what we wanted. Away from hustle n bustle but very close to Windemere, with easy routes to other locations. Pub/restaurant literally 4 minutes down the road. Cottage wouldn't suit everyone: i.e. those looking for 5star accommodation but this was clean, relaxing good TV and lovely cows!! And James the owner a fount of stories about area.

Lovely break
We had a wonderful time staying in the cottage which was perfect for our family with three children and a dog. Great location for all that the Lake District has to offer yet away from the crowds so you can enjoy peace and quiet and fantastic views.

We are just back after staying at Mislet Cottage and we truly enjoyed every single minute of it. The cottage was lovely and so was the location, it was so peaceful. I will definitely be back for another visit. Thank you for having us.
