Cottage Details

Dog-friendly Hammerhole is a cottage on the shores of Lake Windermere, with its own private jetty. With stunning views and a well-presented interior, this is a wonderful location for a relaxing getaway.

Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome, and there is ample off-road parking.

There are five bedrooms: a ground-floor king-size double with ensuite bathroom (bath, basin and WC), then a second king-size double and three twins. There is a ground-floor shower room, with further bathing facilities upstairs. Bed linen and towels are included in the rent.

Free WiFi is available close by at Home Farm courtyard.


Relax on the lakeside patio with furniture, a perfect place to take in the lake views after a day of exploring with your dogs.

Loved the jetty and the large comfortable home. Everything we needed was provided. Magical experience for our family and dogs.
