In our cottage guest book:
Cozy cottage located in the center of town, but set back enough from the traffic and noise. Very quite location. Furnished to a high standard and it is clean and comfortable. Parking was tight, but we did manage every day to get in the bay at the back of the cottage with no problem. Facilities were good. Some 'high touch' items have been removed, so make sure you pack an iron and hairdryer if you need one ! First time to the lakes, beautiful this time of the year. Check in and out were both very smooth, communication is excellent from both Tim and Kim. We would return and are happy to recommend to others.
Lovely cosy cottage, very comfortable and cosy (especially with the log fires) in a great location for local restaurants and walks.
Lovely break in a lovely cottage and the owners could not have been more helpful re checking in etc.
Only reason for not 10’s across the board was the parking which was a little tricky but manageable and as there was 4 of us, a second toilet would have been useful.
This cottage is a great place to use as a base to explore the lakes. We went off hiking and rock-climbing every day. The rather unique feature, though, is that it is located in central Windermere town, literally 30 metres from the high street, with Coop, Sainsburys, ice cream shops, bars and restaurants. We really enjoyed that aspect, and found ourselves popping out to the high street all the time, for shopping, breakfast, dinner and ice cream.
The location is perfect for restaurants or for access to other parts of the lake district. Clean, well looked after cottage and the fabulous welcome pack was a lovely touch.
We were the first to stay post lockdown so a bit apprehensive given the circumstances. All surfaces etc were sanitised, all necessary precautions were taken. We had a very nice stay.
Lovely little cottage well equip and close to amenities. The only thing that we would suggest would be to give the small outside space at the back of the property a little makeover.
Great position in a lovely village - everything in Windermere in your door stel and Bowness about 20 mins' walk. Parking easy for two cars. One bathroom for 6 guests meant it took a while to get through showers after activities but we knew that was the case. We'd definitely return. Thanks.
18 in the corner is a lovely cottage perfectly located in a quiet street but only seconds from the shops and restaurants.
It has everything you would expect and is also much bigger than it appears in the pictures. The owners communication was really good and they answered questions we had very quickly... We will definitely be booking again!!
A great place to stay. A handy location for all parts of the Lake District and a clean, cosy and well equipped cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our six night stay and would recommend it.
Great holiday and glorious weather. Lovely cottage although a little snug for 6 adults.
Thank you very much for welcoming our family in your lovely holiday house! Spot on with the welcome hamper, flowers, and other homely amenities. The sun was with us the entire week for our walks and drinks on the veranda. Well done and thanks again!
We have enjoyed a lovely week in your beautiful house - we felt at home as soon as we walked in and loved the fresh flowers and welcome hamper - lovely surprise!
Thank you Tim and Kimberley - we would definitely return if you have availability the next time we travel to the Lake District and we wish you all the best. Thanks xxx
We have had a lovely couple of days (very warm Yey!)
Loved the welcome hamper and flowers on the table.
We enjoyed lazy evenings by the fire and eating at some yummy places. A perfect cottage, we can't fault a thing!
Thank youKimberley and Tim - a really fab break
Another wonderful weekend at 18 in the corner. Our second visit after such a nice stay in DECEMBER 2017. All the small touches from the welcome hamper and christmas decorations to the fully fitted out kitchen have made another memorable weekend for our family.
Thanks again to Kimberley and Tim!
Thank you for a lovely home to stay in. We all had a great weekend and it certainly kept us out of the rain x
A great family week away - thank you for the lovely welcome hamper and Halloween touches. A good base and easy access to Windermere centre and Lakes. Daughter loved the LUSH accessories - a fab week away
Lovely cottage with everything we needed. Lovely welcoming feeling when we walked through the door. Fabulous location, quiet and peaceful, but near to everything with the beautiful lakes so near by!
Thank you so much.
Had a lovel few days in this beautiful home. Great time had by us all to celebrate husbands 50th Birthday. We ate at the lamplighter and Porto restaurants and many of the great pubs and bars. We ill certainly use this great location for our base next time we come back to the Lakes. Thank you :)
We have enjoyed a lot, our stay in this lovely cottage. Upon arrival we felt at home immediately. Over the last 10 days we have made 18 in the corner our base camp for hikes, shopping and driving through the fabulous Lake District.
Every time we arrived back home, we could check on the maps where we have been. The kitchen was well used by us and is very complete. We appreciated the coffee machine a lot.
Thank you for all good care, the welcoming basket and the detailed descriptions
It has been a great week spent in your comfy, cosy & warm cottage! Lovely attention to detail. I especially loved the hand lotion from LUSH and thoughtful hamper along with the card. Really welcoming! :)
Many thanks Kim and Tim!
Thank you so much for a lovely relaxing stay. Perfect place to unwind and explore Windermere and the surrounding areas.
A wonderful short break for my wife's Birthday, cottage is lovely and well equipped.
Enjoy all who follow us. Thank you.
Love the cottage. My daughter was delighted with her room (double on top floor) and we loved the homely feel and open fires. Very well kitted out and the maps on the walls look great and are useful.
CD and DVD selection was great fun - we enjoyed!
We've had a lovely stay thank you.
It was nice to enjoy the treats that you left and the coffee was delicious
The cottage is really nice and has everything required. It is beautifully finished and decorated throughout and the CD's, books and games were well used.
Thank you for making our first visit to the Lakes so special.
It really is a sweet home from home indeed. x
I have a lovely time at Lake district and 18 in the corner which gave me a good mood, was really nice, especially the bedroom at 2nd floor is my favourite.
18 in the corner located at a brilliant place, its close to train station and parks and lakes. Also some amazing restaurants. the Lake district is awesome, like the beautiful lakes, bridge house and parks. Lovely holiday! Chloe
We really enjoyed the time we lived in this lovely cottage. It is quiet, convenient and well equipped. It is ideal accommodation for anyone who would like to have a condensed stay in Lake district. Sandie
Thanks Kimberley & Tim
Thank you for the lovely welcome box- it was a really nice surprise on arrival. We had a great stay at 18 in the corner, lovely comfy beds and all very clean... thank you. Kids loved the LUSH gifts. We will definitely recommend this place and will be returning as its a real home from home. This was our first time here at the Lakes, we have found it breathtaking and quiet magical so will definitely be returning as this cottage is well located and clearly well looked after. Thank you Timoth and Kimberley for making our stay here in the Lakes very comfortable. With all our love and best wishes.
We had a very nice stay at 18 in the corner. The house is fully equipped and comfortable. We hiked to Bowness, took the boat and walked to Wray Castle and Hill top. Walked to Orrest Head for magnificent views there.
Had a lovely time here. Amazing location. Couldn't have been better
Great time in Windermere.
Thank you for the welcome basket, it was a great surprise for our arrival
Enjoyed our stay at this charming cottage, with the weather great we spent most of our time touring the lake and partaking in the swimming at Brockhole with family and friends, Must come back again to see more of the Lake District's beautiful and stunning scenery. Thanks
18 in the corner is a great place to stay and we enjoyed visiting Bowness, Ambleside and Grasmere. There are plenty of beautiful places to walk from this cottage.
The cottage is well equipped and we had everything we needed. The welcome pack was great too and the 14 yr old female in our group loved the LUSH products. Coffee pods fab too!
Weather has been fantastic so no need to try out the beautiful fire! Next time!
P.S. Fantastic CD, DVD and book collection, played many CDs
18 in the corner is a lovely cottage. It is extremely conveniently located and accessible for supermarkets, a short walk. Tim has well accessorised the place very thoughtfully with almost all requirements such as washing machine, dishwasher, umbrellas, local info, welcome pack, kitchen utensils etc.
The place is very neatly done up and very little can be done to improve.
Overal a very nice place and should be recommended to other users.
We all had a lovely time in the cottage. The flowers and welcome pack were a really nice touch - especially the Lush!!
This location is prefect, close to all the shops and cafes. While we were here we visited Grasmere for Gingerbread, we went shopping in Ambleside and we went to the Blackwell House, which was beautiful. The cottage itself is cosy, clean and well equipped - we love it! Thank you for having us x
Wonderfully appointed cottage - thank you!
Great location for our escape to the Lakes and we were very lucky with the weather! Thank you
Had a lovely week in the cottage, very cosy and has everything! In a lovely spot close to all the shops and cafes - especially Homeground! A walk to Orrest Head is a must! Amazing views of Windermere up there. Many Thanks

We've had the most lovely time in your gorgeous holiday home. We couldn't have hoped for a more homely and cosy house. Windermere is a fab place to stay and for my first stay in the Lake District I've had a great time, I particularly enjoyed the welcome pack - especially the lush hand lotion. Autumn :)
I like it here :) Ben x
Fabulous cottage ans so well appointed. Also spotlessly clean and tidy. Loved it. Amanda
Amazing time in Windermere. Fantastic pubs and great scran. Andrew
Great stay in a warm and cosy Cottage. Open fires after a days hiking is just perfect. We will be back
Thank you for a most enjoyable stay. We visit the Lakes every February half term but usually stay in our beloved Grasmere. However, due to having Charlie we were unable to stay at our usual hotel and needed to be somewhere more central. The cottage did not disappoint! Beautiful and cosy and full of lovely touches. Thank you again.
We had a fantastic stay here at this warm and welcoming cottage! The location is beyond perfect and the care that Tim and Kimberley have put into looking after this cottage did not go unnoticed, from the modern kitchen and bathroom , the cosy dining space and the beautiful decor... throughout this house everything was perfect for us and we are hoping to use this cottage for an annual stay.
Thank you and merry christmas :)
Nice, comfortable, well equipped, cosy house. Felt right at home.
So good to see our children here!
We mad nice and exciting trips (wrynose pass.... brr!)
We had a lovely time here as a family; from oldest Gramps, Chris who has come every year for 57 years to 32 wk old Isaac for whom it was his first visit.
Great cottage in a superb location - very cosy and welcoming thank you!
We aim to come back with other family members in tow too!

We love the lakes and this would be our first choice for accommodation when we come agin.
Thanks a lot from us all!
We are just finishing three nights at this lovely place, my husband, son and I have never been to the Lakes and had a great time. We met our Scottish friends here for a reunion. Jen and I were friends at a hotel in New Jersey in 1989 and have been friends ever since!Our summers are very special events and this was the perfect backdrop/setting!
Everything was very comfortable and the location makes eating out without much/any plans easy breezy!
Goodbye 18 in the corner! Thank you! xx
