  • “The cottage is ideally located for Ambleside and the parking permit is a real plus.”

    The cottage itself is cosy, adequately equipped and has very comfortable beds. My only concern was that the cleanliness wasn’t particularly good, dust, cobwebs and the cooker extractor was very greasy and had to be cleaned before using it. A number of oven dishes and the frying pan were also greasy and had to be washed before use. Otherwise, a very nice cottage in a great location.

About the location

AMBLESIDE

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.
