    “The cottage needs a good spring clean.”

    The shower cubicle was in an appalling state with black mould growing on the grout, sealant and around the plug hole. Most of the lampshades had cobwebs on them.

    The shower cubicle was in an appalling state with black mould growing on the grout, sealant and around the plug hole. Most of the lampshades had cobwebs on them. In general the cottage had adequate facilities but it was very dark and dreary, in fact a fresh coat of paint wouldn’t go amiss. The plates and glasses in the dresser were difficult to access, needing to get on hands and knees to access the glasses. The property was not value for money

The property

This luxuriously refurbished double-fronted cottage is everything to every lover of Lakeland life. It's only a stroll away from the vibrant shops, restaurants and traditional pubs of Ambleside, and also the shores of Lake Windermere where cruisers depart to ferry you the full length of the lake. The cottage is gently elevated to give superb fell and valley views from both bedrooms and garden. The interior is characterised by traditional features and embellished with designer furnishings, tastefully blending character and contemporary. A truly romantic retreat, or simply a perfect place to spend quality time with family or friends. == Accommodation in detail Parking right outside the cottage. Entrance porch (complete with Bay Tree) opens into light, spacious lounge with oak floor and open fire, leather sofas and picture windows. Well-equipped kitchen/dining room overlooks the garden, with French doors leading to furnished patio. On the first floor, both bedrooms are beautifully coordinated and resplendent with fine and far-reaching views. Spacious and elegant shower room also on first floor. Location Ambleside's friendly character, comfy cafes, fantastic restaurants and traditional pubs combine with a great location from which to explore the rest of the Lakes. From Waterhead Pier in Ambleside, the Windermere Lake Cruisers take you the full length of the lake, with stops at Bowness and Lakeside. The A591 connects Ambleside village with Grasmere and Keswick to the north, Windermere and Bowness to the south, and journeys west to the delights of Hawkshead and Coniston are just as easy.Walks abound in the area, and Ambleside is a great place to start with excellent outdoor equipment shops offering advice and inspiration.

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.
