  • Peter

    “My wife and I had the good fortune to spend a week at Ashness, leaving on 14th May.”

    It was so homely, with excellent parking facilities and wonderful views from the back of the cottage up to Wansfell. There has evidently been a lot of money spent on the property recently, the kitchen appeared to be brand new and carpets were freshly cleaned and pristine. There was only one drawback-we had to face reality and return home after one glorious week. We will definitely return soon. Peter

The property

A pretty mews cottage, quietly located in a little access lane a short stroll from the village centre, in the Kirkstone Foot area of the village - only a couple of minutes walk down Peggy Hill to the centre with its excellent shops and places to eat. Whatever season of the year you choose there is very little need to use the car on a daily basis - the area abounds in fine walking for the adventurous and not-so-adventurous visitor with walks from the door to both Wansfell and The Fairfield Horseshoe. Don't miss a lake cruise on Windermere, England's largest lake, whilst for more active members of the family mountain bikes can be hired locally and there are tennis courts in the village centre. Ambleside also has bowls, mini-golf and two cinemas in the village. Accommodation: Front door entrance into small hallway with hanging space for your outdoor gear. Attractive open plan living/dining room has integral kitchen at one end. This sociable arrangement of the living area is ideal for holiday use - no feeling of being 'on your own' in the kitchen as you can join in with the rest of the family whilst cooking (TV, DVD, free wi-fi broadband, video, CD/tape player). Upstairs there are two bedrooms - one double bedded and one twin - and a good bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and wc. The cottage is comfortably furnished and well equipped for holiday use with fitted carpets throughout. A light and sunny aspect make for a very pleasant holiday feel and cosy in the coldest seasons. Outside: Small sitting out area with furniture available for outside use. Parking for one car. A few hundred yards to village centre, shops, pubs etc

About the location


Windermere 4 miles; Grasmere 4 mile; Keswick 15 miles.

Lying at the northern tip of Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, Ambleside makes a superb base for touring the central Lakes, with Grasmere and the Langdale Valley just a short drive away. There is plenty to do here - cruises, boat trips and watersports on Lake Windermere itself and numerous shops, restaurants and pubs in the village to suit all tastes. On the lakeside at Waterhead, the parkland offers lovely views down the lake and a short stretch of beach, whilst a walk in the other direction, following Stock Ghyll through woodland, will bring you to the entrancing waterfall of Stock Ghyll Force. Along with the Lake and the great walking on offer, Ambleside is also famous for its annual rushbearing ceremony and the diminutive 17th century “Bridge House” - one of the most photographed buildings in the Lake District and now the National Trust Information Centre.
