The location and view from Satter Knotts was fantastic. The living room was a cosy comfortable place for us all to be and enjoy the view over Windermere. The garden is spacious and a great place for our adult childrens easter egg hunt and the kitchen table was a good size for evening board games.

The property was large and well equipped. There was 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs and we had a lovely holiday.

This is a lovely house. Spacious and very clean and well equipped. It is tucked away in a very quiet lane, not overlooked and has stunning views over lake Windermere. The welcome pack was a very nice touch as was the arranged daily milk delivery as there is no local shop.

Satter Knotts was everything we were looking for. Amazing view, quiet location, large garden, detached property, lots of private parking. We stayed the week before Christmas. It was a very warm and comfortable property. Some areas have been recently refurbished; the carpets were pretty new too. Other areas will obviously be updated in the future buRead moret when fully refurbished it may be out of our price range. It was nice and clean, the showers were good and the kitchen had a good variety of equipment. The view at night to the other side of the lake and the lights was lovely. The lake feels so much closer than the photographs on the website can show. Satter Knott is definitely on our list to revisit. It is the first time we have used Lakeland Hideaways and we were very happy with them. Hide
